The Written Review

This trimmer sports a simple one-piece unit, meaning you’re not going to have to fumble with all the different length guards. You can change the trimming length between 1mm-10mm (in 1mm increments) with a flick of your thumb using the dial on the front of the unit. Philips had ergonomics in mind when designing this unit…not all trimmers have this luxury.

If you have some serious designs or sculpting in your facial hair, this might not be the trimmer for you. It’s a great option for guys who have a short-medium sized beard or goatee, and don’t require any super intricate grooming. You can still easily change the length to get a perfect look for yourself though.

With an impressive 4.3/5 star rating on Amazon, this trimmer is a prime no frills unit. Low price tag, easy to use, comfortable, and well-rounded, this is a solid option for beard grooming.

The charge time on this unit isn’t favorable, but it’s not a deal breaker. You can get 35 minutes of use after a 10 hour charge, so just leave it charging overnight or while you’re at work and you’ll be good to go. There’s no case or stand with this, but a great plus with the QT4000 is that it includes a cleaning brush. So seeing as it’s not water proof, this will definitely come in handy when cleaning it out, as well as the easy to remove comb guide.
