Poor batteryI used this a couple of times and after that the battery was dead. Even when plugged into the power outlet the shaver will stop. I had to leave the house with a partially shaved beard. Probably the worst beard trimmer have owned.

Smooth even trimAfter writing an unfavourable review of the Philips QT4015 trimmer (which I returned to my retailer for a full refund) I decided to purchase the Philips BT5205 trimmer. The selling point for me was the 0.4mm trim in the specifications. I used this trimmer with trepidation and was half expecting a poor performance as with the QT4015 model. The two models are polar opposites and I was really pleased with the performance of the BT5205 model. It glided over my face and provided a smooth even trim first time over. This trimmer easily maintains my stubble and is an absolute joy to use. It only takes an hour to fully charge, and can be used both cord and cordless. This trimmer is also completely water proof. Philips have redeemed themselves with the BT5205 model and I highly recommend it.

Poor comb/guideI'm sure the trimmer itself is great but the combs design is not. The settings under 1.5mm certainly do not cut that low and I struggle to get an even length no matter how many times/angles I go over it.
I thought the normal 60 day money back guarantee applied to this trimmer when I bought it but it doesn't otherwise I'd be returning it.

Decent TrimmerIt does what it says it's supposed to do. Cuts better than a cheapy no-name brand and the battery charges quickly. Would be good if it had a charging stand. With 3 year warranty it's a good buy.
