Hyvä perustrimmeri

Hyvä säätövara korkeudelle, akku on myös kestävä. Yksinkertainen käyttää. Terä vaatii paljon öljyn käyttöä. [Tämä arvostelu kerättiin osana kampanjaa.]

Pitkä parta

Itsellä ns. koko naaman parta ja sen lyhentämiseen ainakin sopii mainiosti. Kammat hieman lelujen oloisia, joten saa nähdä kauanko kestävät. Samanlaisia muovinpaloja ne tosin ovat kaikissa laitteissa, joten pelkoni saattaa osallistua turhaksikin. Hinta-laatusuhde mielestäni kohdallaan ja paras ajotulos verrattuna aikaisempiin trimmereihini. [Tämä arvostelu kerättiin osana kampanjaa.]

Toimiva kapistus

Hyvin tällä pulisongit ajaa ja myöskin rajaa parran. Akku kestää ihan hyvin ja terien leikkaussyvyys on helppo ja tarkka tehdä. [Tämä arvostelu kerättiin osana kampanjaa.]

Paranneltu trimmeri

Sain hankkia tuotteen alennettuun hintaan Buzzadorina. Olen aiemmin käyttänyt samanmerkkistä noin 10 vuotta sitten hankimaani trimmeriä. Siihen verrattuna leikkuu pituuden säätö oli helppo asettaa ja lukita. Trimmerissä on edelleen parantamisen varaa leikkuu jäljessä. Oman puoliparran trimmeri jättää jonkin verran epätasaiseksi.

easy to use

I love the way and ease by which my young brother can use it without hurting himself as he is still a teenager thus mostly used to cut himself while shaving. Now i am thinking of buying one for my hubby as well as i am impressed with the quick n neat look that it gives you

Yes, I recommend this product !

Excellent service and warranty replacement

I was delighted with the level of service I received from Braun, including the hassle free nature of my warranty replacement. I would choose to buy from Braun over their competitors again for the piece of mind that if the product had any issues, Braun would take care of it. Good product, great service. Thanks

Yes, I recommend this product !

Smoooooother than Barry White!

Oh baby~ This was a surprise let me tell you. Full upfront disclosure I received this product free to review from Braun through BzzAgent and I am a huge Phillips male grooming products fan and this may be the first Braun product I've ever had win me over.Where to begin!? The most important thing I have to tell you about is just how insanely smooth and glorious it feels in use. Oh my gracious I've never had a frictionless dry cut like it. If it wasn't for the bzzzzing noise you'd not even know it was on. Each blade glides through the hair dry or wet and softly cuts through without any nicks, tugs or pulls in any of the occasions I've used it.The guard is perfect at its job without inhibiting the quality of the shave or the shortness of the cut and allows an all over shave within a minute. It was used on average about two minutes a day for a week and I still haven't recharged it.The utterly gorgeous masculine design in deep matte black and Neon blue makes this stunning bathroom item stand out with 25 options for length. I am a man blessed with a baby face and I like to run controlled stubble to give myself that oompfh and I'd always found it super tricky to maintain that look without going too short or too messy.The Braun BT5050 allows me to keep that look permanently with an insanely low cut of .5mm right down the bone without actually shaving the hair off. Now we can all wear a perma-Clooney look. All the way up to an inch and with an adaptor reaching out to 20mm it can keep even the most dedicated hipster among us looking neat and tidy for work.Build quality? Oh my this is where the German part comes in. Phillips for me has always been my go to choice and Braun was one I had avoided in the past but they apparently have learnt from their mistakes. The quality is absolutely solid. It feels wonderful in the hand and easy to grip with wet hands when stepping out of the shower (or in if you're one of those wet shavers).The satisfying heavy clunkclunkclunk of the wheel clearly displaying the cut in increments on the dial and the guard easily removed by a gentle squeeze of those neon sides. The quality remains in the accessories here too with a strong and well built feel that makes me happy to say this looks like a quality long lasting product.While we're on the aesthetics. It's the most non-invasive shaver I've held in a long time. It doesn't feel like you're handling a jack hammer by the end of the shave and you get that weird pins and needle sin your hand. Nice and controlled and ergonomic towards the top to ensure all the energy is coming into the blades.In a house with two guys and lots of grooming equipment we're both set that this is an excellent product for your buck. It's smart looking, gentle and built to high standards. Give it a try! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun BT5050

This product gives the option to set the length accurately for the perfect trim. The model comes with the option for a longer beard trim which was valuable if you like to keep your beard trimmed and tidy. I used both of the stubble and beard options and they out performed many of my previous trimmers I have owned. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Beard trimmer

I got the beard trimmer out of the box that I received free from Braun with much anticipation, disappointed that it doesn't have a plug as I don't have the 2 pin socket in my bathroom, also 8 hours charge for 50 minutes using time is abit much, faults aside it is comfortable to use and gets to the areas it needs to. I Like the easy clean feature that clips off and the locking feature. Overall a good product and would recommend. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Perfect Shave.

Today I received my free Braun BT5050 beard trimmer to review.First impressions were positive - smartly designed package with an efficiently packaged beard trimmer and accessories inside. I unpacked everything and was pleasantly surprised at how stylish the beard trimmer was. As well as being rather stylish, the actual beard trimmer is very light and fits quite comfortably in the hand. The only thing that I was slightly disappointed with was the cheap feel of the travel bag, but I already have a shaving bag that I use for my shaving products so it doesn't put me off the product. The other accessories are reasonably designed and complement the beard trimmer well. The beard trimmer precision and long beard combs are, like the beard trimmer itself, light and stylish - a very good design. I love how you are able to change the dial on the beard trimmer precision comb to get the perfect beard length - I have used other brands of beard trimmers and they don't have this feature. I did think that this dial wouldn't actually work, but it really does!Now let's get down to how the beard trimmer performed. I purposefully let my beard grow a little longer knowing that I'd be able to try out this new beard trimmer, and I am very pleased with how it handled my long beard. However, I did have to go over a few places multiple times to ensure all hairs were of the same length. I usually take my time when shaving because I like a perfect shave and I had the beard trimmer running for about 25 minutes nonstop - there was hardly any change in battery performance (I had, however, charged it for about 4 hours beforehand). The blades were sharp, ran super smoothly and allowed for a brilliant shave, but after a while the blades did become hot to the touch.Another good feature is that the trimmer is washable! You usually have to pay a lot more money to have a waterproof trimmer. Very impressive. I did give the trimmer a little rinse in warm water and it still works perfectly! It really is easy to clean.My final thoughts are similar to my initial impressions - positive. A very good quality, and reasonably priced beard trimmer that is able to deliver a smooth and precise shave. I will definitely continue to use this trimmer to keep my beard tame. I would highly recommend this beard trimmer to those who want a trimmer that doesn't break the bank and is able to perform like it should. It truly is a product of German engineering.
