Good, but not life changing

While overall I was due for a new beard trimmer, I can't say it is highly innovative. Were a friend to ask me for a recommendation I would recommend this trimmer. Pros: holds a charge for multiple trims, the multiple longer lengths allow me to customize my look, easy to clean, nice weight (heavy but not cumbersome). Easy to switch blades and clean. Cons: my beard may be too thick to accurately judge, but any setting under 10 did not seem to do anything.There isn't much wrong with the trimmer, it does exactly what I need and not much more. Perfect for me, but is it a hot new product that you need? I'm not convinced. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Ultimate Precision Beard Trimmer

Right from out of the box, I was excited to give my beard a wack just from how precise you can trim your beard to fit your needs with the 39 precision length settings. It's pretty straight forward and easy to use; comes with two trimmer heads where the first length of the longer is the next adjustable increment that's easy to slide both on and off. On the back of the box, the pictures give a good impression of what this baby can do. I thought it was neat to have a FlexBall manual razor included for the smooth, straight, finishing touches. I like that it's easy to clean and wash off being fully washable in water, as indicated, along with a small brush you can get in between the teeth. I'm a bit confused by the weird separation of the "2" in the contents of the box, and a little bit disappointed that it doesn't come with one of those small beard combs.After having used this product for a few weeks now, I can without a doubt trust this to fulfill my beard trimming needs. Originally I had a beard that was about double the length of the longest trim size. I was kind of expecting the experience to be painful, but was quite surprised when I was finished without a single tug on my whiskers. Not only that, I was left with a well rounded and even shave, so there was no need for a second run through. Finally I took the trimmer without an attachment to: keep my mustache out of my mouth, shave down my mane, and knock off any strays. As you should be able to tell, I was overall impressed and satisfied with the results. I now feel more confident when I shave, and feel that I don't have to worry about the usual complications. I now look forward to a good shave instead of finding excuses to grow a full-lengthed shaggy beard. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Good Trimmer but BE CAREFUL

Luckily i got this trimmer right when i needed it. It Was coming up on my quarterly beard trim time. I already have a trimmer, though its older than Myspace. The packaging was neat and explained everything pretty clearly on the box in case you buy it at the store. Once opened the first thing i noticed is that there is no real "tray" to keep the trimmer and its attachments in. Granted, you can use the plastic packaging it comes with, but its quite frail and could be easily lost or broken. Most trimmers i know of Have a separate organization tray and i find this invaluable in keeping all the pieces in one spot without rattling or rolling around in a drawer. As i said in my title, use caution. I took the adjuster off the check it out and placed it back on. Or at least I thought i did. Before you use it, double check to make sure its on securely before you adjust it. If it is not on all the way, it will not engage the little notches on the side. Cut my beard all the way down to the skin by accident in one spot. Luckily, i was shaving it off anyways, but if you have been growing a marvelous beard for months it can all be ruined by accidentally knocking the head off and it doesn't click all the way back on during reassembly.Call me old fashioned but I like the old trimmers with the separate length guides more than the convenience of an all in one unit. Or maybe i'm just poor at adapting to new things?I did like the seemingly fast charge though. With my old trimmer, it seemed like it would be done charging by the time my beard finally grew out. This one only takes a few hours (maybe less) to go from dead to ready to cut.All in all a great trimmer. Besides the strange absence of a tray and the awful head clip tracks I would recommend it.

Braun Beard Trimmer Does The Job

the Braun BT3040 Beard Trimmer is pretty nice! It has 39 different settings that can easily be adjusted by the twist of the dial. it comes with 2 comb attachments that allows you the freedom to fade your beard, or to maintain it a specific length. I've used this beard trimmer more frequently than i thought i would, just to tidy up the neck line and what not, and i've had no problems with it. I kept it charging over one night and i haven't had to re-charge it yet and it's been about a month. i decided to go clean shaven and i was pleasantly surprised that the trimmer didn't tug or rip out hairs, it took it down to a stubble pain free. I then shaved the rest with the Gillette ProGlide Razor it came with. Cleaning the trimmer was a breeze, run it under water and you're on your way. The only bad thing I have to say about this beard trimmer is that it doesn't come with a travel bag or anything so the charger and combs are strewn about in the drawer. Besides that, it works great and I would recommend it to anyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Portable, Performance, and Quality

The Braun Beard Trimmer BT3040 (Model 5517) is the best trimmer I've ever used. Lightweight, easy to clean, quiet, and the best part, great performance. The BT3040 features two things I want out a product of this type: trimming options and portability. With two guides and length settings, I was able to get the exact type of trim I needed. The cordless aspect of the BT3040 is also great because I am not tied-down to an outlet.Razor-bumps, cuts, or any skin-sensitive problems never occurred while using the BT3040 -- even when using without the guides.The biggest downside to the BT3040 is its lengthy charge time; however, the blade does seem to hold its charge very well. Also a carrying case/pouch would have been nice for this. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great, but....

After using the Braun trimmer for more than a month, I can still trust the quality of this brand's products. There are many pros and few cons for me with the BT3040. Pros: water resistant/washable, rechargeable, portable, can use battery power alone/with cord attached (if low battery), long-lasting charges, easily/smoothly adjust trimmer attachment height with the front dial (good @ fading/tapering beard), great rubberized grip, and the one I got came with a free Gillette fusion razor (to get the closer, clean shave). Cons: power button can be a bit difficult at times to turn on/off (too much force/pressure needed to press power button), the bare blade doesn't do a great job with stubble trimming (some pulling of beard, probably needs to be a bit sharper), and it needs a travel pouch/case to keep the two attachments, mini brush and power adapter secure. Overall, its a great beard trimmer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Braun 3040

I think the braun 3040 is an excellent tool to trim beards. I even tried to give my child a hair cut with it. That didnt work so well. I love the design and how i can get so many Precision blades with just two guards. Thats one thing hated about all my other trimmers, 12 different guards that would always get lost. It gave me the very close shave and accuracy that i was looking for. I'm very pleased with the braun 3040 and will be recommeneding it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great bang for your buck!!

I have owned many different trimmers. I have cut my hair and beard myself for over 12 years. This trimmer is second to none. First off, this trimmer is cordless (as long as you charge it). Every other trimmer I have owned has not been cordless. It may not seem like much but being cordless is a great benefit when trimming your hair. Second, the power is great on this unit. It holds its power well for being cordless and holds it for as long as you need for your typical grooming needs. Third, I may not use all the attachments that is included but the option to cut my facial hair to a precise length is very important. The flexibility and the multitude of options this trimmer gives you is second to none. Do not hesitate to purchase this trimmer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
