VERDICT

Considerations

Before you buy this product, here are some of the things other users have cited which may influence your choice for this product.

Cons

Some customers commented that this product should not be considered by others for several reasons. Some customers indicated that the make of this trimmer is very brittle, making it easy to break. In one example, the plastic guard broke after several uses and getting a replacement is very difficult.

In another testimonial, he commented that the comb had also broke easily after a few uses without the chance to get it replaced. Even if it is glued together, the broken part will still not work well. When they asked for a replacement part from Panasonic, the company said they are uncertain if they can still get replacement parts.

For another client, he said that the guard and blade design of this trimmer is not capable of trimming any hair because the cutting blade is located in the middle. As a result, trimming becomes very difficult, especially in some areas of the face.

When it comes to charging, they argued that it does not have a no-overcharge feature which would drain the batteries should you forget it in the plug.

Pros

Customers all stressed that the trimmer has several good points that makes it on par with the best beard trimmers on the market. One testimonial indicated that this trimmer lives up to its name as it can be used while in the shower, making it easy to clean as well.

They also noted that the interchangeable length adjustments are very commendable and they said that even if the box said one can only adjust the max settings to 14, the dial will actually show 20.

One added that they love the fact the trigger adjustment settings is locked in place once you trim along, ensuring that you will get accurate results each time. If by any chance the guard is pushed down while you are trimming, the device will immediately shut down to make sure you don’t cut yourself.

Happy customers also said that they love the fact they can operate this without any problems and it is very quiet. You can also charge this very fast, allowing users to use it almost immediately.

Bottom Line

Panasonic is one of the major names of home appliances on the market which makes it a favorite brand for many when it comes to their home care needs. With the fast pace of life today, appliances have to keep up with it and with Panasonic’s ER224S, you do not need to worry about trimming in fast conditions in any environment.
