    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    Electric shavers and trimmers have come a long way over the years, and even though they will not be completely replacing razor blades and trimming scissors any time soon, they have now reached a point where they have become more than acceptable alternatives. Philips Norelco stubble trimmer Pro is an excellent choice when it comes to stubble trimmers. Below are some of my impressions thus far.

    *** Trimming ***

    If you get a device that does one thing and one thing only you’d expect it to deliver on that account. And indeed, the Norelco stubble trimmer does a great job of trimming the stubble. Its blades are fairly sharp, and the trimmer’s guard will allow you to adjust the length of cutting from 0.5 mm to 10.0 mm. Unfortunately, just like all other trimmers out there, it doesn’t go all the way to 0.0 mm setting, so you’ll need to use a shaver for the finishing touches. Nonetheless, the stubble trimming gives a smooth, even look. The trimmer has a very nice edge that is ideal for precision trimming.

    *** Charging/Battery ***

    My trimmer came already pre-charged, so I was able to use it straight out of box. The blade speed didn’t seem to be all that fast though, which I attributed to the low charge. However, even after having it charged the speed remained pretty much the same, so I guess that is just the speed at which this trimmer operates. The speed did not have any influence on the quality of trimming. Furthermore, the charging of the trimmer did not take too long – according to the package it can be fully charged in less than an hour, although since I never had it get completely discharged I never needed that much time. Single charge can last for a while, up to few weeks with typical use. The trimmer can be used while it is being charged, so if you primarily plan on using it in your own bathroom losing charge should never be an issue.

    *** Cleaning ***

    One of the most annoying things with electric shavers or trimmers has always been the need to painstakingly take the moving parts apart in order to get all the debris out. There are some very advanced models on the market that will clean themselves, but they require special base stations and cleaning liquids that add a lot of cost over time. Furthermore, many trimmers require occasional lubrication with proprietary oil-based lubricants, which needless to say adds a great deal of hassle to the whole cleaning process. The Norelco trimmer doesn’t require any of those complicated procedures. It can be washed with water and additionally cleaned with the included brushes. It is probably the shaver/trimmer that is easiest to maintain of all the products that I have come across.

    *** Build ***

    This trimmer comes across as very solid. It feels really good in hand, and one gets sense that it is also very durable. However, I’ll have to use it for a while before I can make the final assessment on this aspect of the trimmer. The trimmer is nicely designed and its ergonomic shape sits well in your hand. It is fairly heavy, much more so than I expected. This gives it a nice sense of control while trimming.

    *** Price ***

    The trimmer seems more expensive than most electric shavers/trimmers that you can find these days. However, it is a very solid product that does what it is designed to do extremely well. If having neatly groomed stubble is one of your priorities, then this trimmer is definitely worth the price.

    One thing that I wish was included in the package is a traveling/storage case, or at least a cover for the blade.

    *** Conclusion ***

    If you are looking for a trimmer that will give you a consistently even and well-groomed stubble, be easy to use and maintain, then Philips Norelco stubble trimmer is an ideal option.

    There are three problems with this trimmer. One is the stubble comb. It does not fully cover the blades, therefore the unit must be held at a PERFECT angle for you to evenly cut your beard. Hold it too high, and the blade is directly against your skin. This makes trimming take FOREVER compared to the Remington MB series, which has a guard covering the whole blade, so you can just quickly drag it across your beard in the morning. The second problem is that there is no indication of when the unit is done charging. Third is the price, it’s just too expensive for such a limited-use trimmer.

    I haven’t tried the other stubble trimmers so I’ll try to compare this to a Norelco G370 beard trimmer that I have.

    After reading user reviews of the other stubble trimmers the general consensus is that they don’t shave close enough. Well at .5mm on paper, this is as close as it gets. For whatever reason Babyliss no longer makes their elusive I-Trim models which also have .5mm to .8mm settings, and were only available in the UK anyway. Glad Norelco saw the need and decided to make one itself.

    The Shave:
    =========
    This thing shaves really close @ .5mm, uncomfortably close even… which isn’t necessarily a horrible thing. Expect your skin to be dry and maybe even flaky after using this at its lowest setting. Note that the plastic comb guard doesn’t spring-adjust to contour to your face like the QT4021, but at the same time I don’t think that “feature” would actually give a closer shave.

    I’ve only shaved with it once and liked the result. In fact it cut so close that the “stubble look” lasted two days for me. That said, naturally uncut stubble is still better looking in my opinion, your results may vary. The QT4022 just gives you more control in terms of timing and can let you sport an everyday stubble if used consistently. Nothing else seems to provide this right now.

    Build Quality:
    =========
    In your hand it feels great. The rubber-like feel of the back will give you an excellent non-slip grip and while it’s not exactly heavy, it’s definitely not as light as other cheaper models which helps with stability. Plus the full-width adjustment setting rotary knob on the back is a really nice touch. No flimsy parts here that may break off. Guessing the attention to build quality is the main reason Norelco prices this model higher than its others. It should last you several years, with the biggest concern being the battery.

    Battery:
    =========
    This razor seems to have the older style battery because the manual warns of leaving it plugged in too long, letting it drain completely before recharging, etc… which is kind of a drag, but if it keeps the price down I can live with it. Wish I could comment on batt life, will amend this review later if it starts acting up. My 5yr old G370 still works, but the battery life is now atrocious, not lasting long after a single charge. But honestly, if I can get a good 4-5 years out of the stubble trimmer w/o battery issues I’ll be happy.

    Note: if the battery’s dead the trimmer can work on full power by being plugged in which is a nice touch.

    Noise:
    =========
    Just a quick note on noise: it’s quiet. My rotary triple head electric shaver is naturally quieter, but for a traditional back & forth electric razor I was shocked by how little noise this makes.

    Rating:
    =========
    Giving the Norelco QT4022 stubble trimmer 5/5 stars on Amazon mainly due to its solid build quality and the fact that nothing else currently available trims this close. Norelco did a good job of taking even the most basic functions from past models and tweaked them to make them better. Hoping all Norelco “Pro” models are this nice.
