This trimmer is a definite step up from my older Norelco, which essentially had only the most basic feature of a trimmer: An adjustable guide. In the interest of deciding whether it's worth it to spend the additional money, I will compare the two. The QT4070 blade cuts very smoothly and evenly, much better than my old Norelco. The old Norelco (without vacuum) had clippings all over the sink and counter--the QT4070 vacuum captures around 97%, which leaves the sink and counter pretty clean. The QT4070 battery keeps its charge well. The QT4070 digital readout ensures I have it set to the correct length, and lets me know how much battery power remains. There is, however, the need to be more careful in the use of the QT4070 than my old Norelco. The QT4070 has a gap between the top guard and the side guard, which leaves the cutting surface more exposed. (I.e., you can stick your chin between the guards, and get closer to the trimmer than the guard setting would otherwise allow.) On the old Norelco it was impossible to bring the cutting surface too close since the guard covered 100% of the cutting surface. I was initially concerned, but got the hang of it by the second use. Conclusion: The QT4070 is of course a luxury, but it does deliver for the additional price. Any trimmer will do the job. For the additional cost, the QT4070 will provide a smoother and more even cut, with a much cleaner sink and counter, keeping its charge well, and providing a clear digital readout.

Good if you maintain atleast half inch of beard

by Sreek on 6/11/2012

This is a good product if you maintain atleast 1/4-1/2 inch of beard otherwise it is little difficult to trim too short with this trimmer especially 1 mm to 3 mm is really difficult. I have seen many complaints on the vacuum system in the reviews but it is working perfect for me. When you have long beard and try to trim this trimmer works perfect where as if your beard is short in length and try to trim its little difficult. It trims little uneven in few places Read More
