I purchased this to replace another Philips trimmer that was no longer taking a charge. I chose this model after reading all of the 5 star reviews, but I've ended up disappointed. I agree that it seems to cut well, but it's hopeless at trimming my neck and doing the edges, and it makes such a dreadful racket I don't want to turn it on. In fact it's so loud and rattly I wonder if it's faulty. The length adjustment is totally different to my old Philips, so I've ended up with a much shorter beard than intended. The numbers on the adjustment dial are so small and lacking in contrast that I'm hard pressed to tell the difference between 6 and 8 when I'm bleary eyed in the morning. Sure, it's not expensive, but it's nowhere near the quality of my old Philips (which is sadly no longer made).
