Philips BT1005 Beard Trimmer for Men Review:
- The comb can be adjusted easily just by sliding to our required position.
- These trimmers are easy to maintain. They can be cleaned by opening the top head and cleaning the parts with a brush.
- It has non-scratching teeth which provides a comfortable trimming experience.
- Unlike other trimmers which need constant lubrication with oil, Philips 1005 needs no such lubrication as the blades move freely even when the hair is rough or thick.
- The best thing about this trimmer is that one need not always keep the entire trimmer for charging. It’s good to just put two AA batteries and get going, better than charging whole day and using.
- It also has fantastic speed and accuracy
- Additionally it produces less sound and ensures smooth running in skin.
- On the downside, the design of this trimmer however is quite dull and uninspiring.
- The trimmer also weighs more and seems bulky to use.
- It has a plasticky feel to it.
- According to few users, the hairs sometimes get caught up in the cutting blades thus resulting in pain to the users. However such cases are rare.
- Another problem with Philips BT1005 is that when you use into your armpit and setting at 0 mm you have to be careful of cutting because 0 mm is without comb and it might lead to cuts and nicks as reported by certain users.
Overall It is quite a good product compared to other products in the same price range. With a right angle of trimming and proper maintenance of the trimmer, a very good trimming experience is possible. Philips BT1005 beard trimmer is worth buying if one is not looking for ergonomics and aesthetics and is purely looking for performance.
