Rated 4 out of 5 by Jim Like it but where are the replacement blades?
After a year or so of use it starts cutting rough. I need a new glad attachment. They used to be sold here but no more. And they're impossible to find anywhere else. So if you buy this know that you'll need to buy on every year or so unless they make the blade available again.

What was I thinking? I bought a cheaper, no name trimmer on Groupon and I got what I paid for. I then ordered this Panasonic to make up for my mistake and it is perfect: stylish, very quiet, easy to use, trims well -- and barely more expensive than the cheap trimmer I bought and have already discarded. Many settings to get just the perfect length beard, allows for precise trimming around edges, and can be used in water. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jimmy1940 A great trimmer
This is the fourth beard trimmer I have had and by far the best. It is quiet, easy to use and it works beautifully.

This is a solid product. I have been using it for a few months now. As an engineer, I can say that these folks did a great job with design, materials, user needs, and ease of maintenance. Happy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gajima Excellent hair trimmer, but . . .
Panasonic makes excellent hair trimmers that cut well, are easy to use, and provide great results. I would rate it much higher except for its lack of one key feature. My first Panasonic hair trimmer was the model ER-CA35 with a universal voltage adapter built-in. I used it while traveling abroad on many occasions. Now Panasonic offers only the ER-GB40 in the same price range and with all the features of the ER-CA35 except for universal voltage. I feel like they have downgraded the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BobT Keeps my beard and 'stache in shape
I have been using this device for months now, and it does a good job with little fuss.
The instructions on oiling the trimmer are a little vague. It is difficult to tell where to put the 3 drops from the pictogram on the unit. And, is it really necessary to oil it after each use?
The plastic trimmer is easy to set for the length you want to trim your beard.
The clipper is good, but must be used upside down (not intuitive!), and does not clip stray hairs to make outlines like a razor blade can make.
It gives a feeling of durability, which is what I wxpect from Panasonic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mog1254 Never again
I have owned Panasonic electric shavers for 30+ years. The delivery time was excellent, but after that I don't have much good to say.. This shaver requires a THIRTY hour charge time? And the book says 30 while the shaver itself says 20. Strike one. Then the trimming experience itself. It clogs up so fast I find myself cleaning it out every 1-2 minutes. Strike two.. Then the adjustment foil itself. Figured out RIGHT away that one has to be VERY delicate with the adjustments or I just know that it will break. Strike three. It's not as user friendly as I thought it would be. I will be contacting Panasonic asap...I ordered this on 2/10/16-Got it on 2/13. Used it ONCE on 2/14. Lousy experience overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Well designed and easy to clean
The trimmer fits well in my hand and works fine. I like the ease with which the head comes apart to clean and oil the blades.
I have only used it for a few weeks but am pleased... the major test will be long term battery life but I am optimistic.
