    Very happy with this purchase! Make no mistake, however, this is NOT a shaver....it is a battery powered TRIMMER. There are three different trimmers you can attach to the unit. Depending on how much of your beard/mustache you want to trim. Does a great job keeping my goatee nice and trimmed. Also good for the hair on your neck. You can remove the trimmers if you are so inclined, and attempt to use it on your face as a shaver. As noted, however, it is NOT a shaver...it will remove some of the hair on your face, and give you a "stubbled" look...If that's your thing...so be it...but if you are looking for the "clean shaven look" use an electric shaver, or better yet...a blade!! Reasonably priced, great trimmer, and easy to clean.... Just be careful...if you are like me and "blow" the hair out of the trimming apparatus while "cleaning", make sure you close your eyes, or you will end up with hairs in your eyes...Very uncomfortable! Overall, however, I recommend this product!

    Too Messy to use, didn't shave well

    I have never had to write a bad review for any product before. I even research this product which was praised for its ease of use. I followed the directions and I tried to use this. It was messier than most electric shavers that are not close shave. I decided after having to heavily cleaning my bathroom counter that I did not want this product. I was so surprised as this is a Norelco product. I then bought the Phillips Norelco One Blade, and it is amazing. I realize the Go styler is not a close shave unit but I didn't expect the mess that happened. It was the worst mess I have ever had to clean in my bedroom.

    So I am a girl that was looking for a trimmer especially designated for... down there. All of the "female trimmers" I could find were honestly wimpy and not what I was looking for. This trimmer is great, the little heads to choose the length are great and it comes with a battery! It is compact and does exactly what I need it to! This is a good one for the ladies out there who are looking

    I bought this to keep my beard in check. It is battery operated (single AA battery-not included). Besides the main cutter tip, it includes three different length adapters, and a shaver head. I've been using it for more than a year now and it works flawlessly every time. The last time I used it was today, and it works just like new. Took me from looking like Wolf-Man Jack to look more like Sean Connery in Indiana Jones in minutes. I highly recommend it.

    I have used this trimmer for a month. I rate its value above average when considering quality, function and price. I have a very tough beard, and this trimmer handles it nicely. I would prefer the trimmer head to be a little wider, but otherwise easy to use. Well built. Unit and attachments are easy to change and feel solid. Shaver is typical of its type. I didn't want to spend a lot of money for a hospital grade shaver-trimmer, so took a chance on this one and am satisfied. Only time will tell how durable over the long run.

    Hi. I can never get an electric razor to shave as close as a blade. I typically use a larger Braun electric razor. The Norelco ProStyler is ideal for a final once-over to reach places the larger razor just won't go, particularly on the upper lip and neck. Using this for the final laps over my face results in a shave almost as close as a blade. The audible feedback the razor produces when it is digging in for the last of the stubble is a welcome likely unintended consequence of such a small shaving head. You will like this little razor.

    I use this strictly as a mustache trimmer. I bought this to replace a Wahl whose rechargeable battery died. The Wahl was heavier and the blade had a thicker blade guard. The Norelco is very light and the attachments are easy to put on and remove. I especially like the mini shaver attachment which is great for shaving the skin around my mustache, which my regular electric razor misses. The only downside to the Norelco is thinner blade guard. The corners of the blade can pull hair if you don't have the blade angled correctly.

    Great price for the quality and convenience of this product. My facial hair isn't super tough, and it takes me a month to grow what from far looks like a goatee, but that's what makes this shaver the right match for me. It's small, battery powered, and the attachments allow me to get a nice close shave wherever and whenever I need a quick manscaping.

    A high quality and well engineered trimmer. The 4 levels of beard trimming are all I need. The additional shaving foil is a bonus for a close shave. The price is outstanding for what is provided. I prefer a battery powered cutter for two reasons; no cord and no eventual failure of an internal rechargeable battery. The batteries last a really long time that's all I need.

    I've been looking everywhere for a facial hair detailer like this. This trimmer does everything I was hoping it would do. I especially like the mini foil shaver attachment. It is hard to find one this small. Unit seems to last quite a long time on a single battery. My only gripe is that it does not include a case. Anything with multiple tiny accessories should come with a case. Overall I am enjoying this purchase.

    I needed to purchase a shaving type of device very quickly because of a business trip that's when I saw the Norelco The device did exactly what I needed to do was to trim my bread and make it look nice and neat. This is a product I would deathly recommend especially for the business male who travels and need to make sure you look nice in public

    I've used better, more powerful ones in the past. This one does not trim the hair as deeply and quickly as it should, so takes a while to perfect the area of hair you're trying to remove. It does have a smaller head though for the stubble remover attachment, which is nice for those areas that go missed with a regular razor.

    I've used this trimmer 3 or 4 times and it works just fine. Nice & light, easy to get the guards on & off, and it has replaceable batteries. The non-replaceable battery in my old trimmer was the only reason I bought a new one in the first place - it just wouldn't hold a charge anymore. So I classify that as a big advantage with this unit.

    I had the older version of this trimmer and it got water damage. This new one is way better than that and I wish I had upgraded sooner! Perfect for trimming or styling edges of your beard and other facial hair. It's quieter and more powerful than the last model.

    Can't complain about this after owning it for awhile. It does what I need it to do (sideburn trimming and beard trimming before shave). It hasn't broken yet which is nice as all of these types of things seem to have only a year of life in them for some reason.

    I really like the feel of this trimer. One triple A Battery three different heads for trimming mustache and one attachment for cleaning up very close. I think this product is very good for trimming mustache and goatee and ears, but to small to do a beard.

    It doe it's Job very well. It's great at trimming my beard and shaving the hair off my cheeks. Of course it's not as close of a shave as a razor but it gets the job done. one thing to note is it uses AA batteries. In my case I like this because I never have to worry about it's battery slowly failing.

    Got this for my son for his 13th birthday. He had a light mustash growing in that didn’t like and I was nervous for him to use a razor. This was perfect for him and easy to use.

    I like this trimmer a lot and even bought a extra to keep at my home in New York. It works very well as a beard trimmer and has three separate combs to style your beard the way you want but the shaver attachment is pretty much useless on my heavy beard.

    Not the kinda guy that grows the best beard but needed something to edge and trim. This razor is awesome for doing just that. The attachments work great and I for one like the ability to change a battery out instead of it relying on a charge. Great price and value
