Before we get into this, I want you to know that I have extensive experience with trimmers and products from Phillips. I can honestly recommend products from this brand.
I still use my little Norelco G370 all-in-one groomer that I got from Fred Meyers for about $20. Let’s dive right in and see what basic features this multi-groom system has to offer.
- Can be used with or without cord; I can’t stress how convenient this is. My Norelco G370 cannot be used while it’s plugged in, which means it can only be used on battery charge, and at times, that’s a huge inconvenience for me. This trimmer can apparently run for 50 minutes after being charge for 60. Compared with my G370, that’s really remarkable, LOL. Really. My Norelco only runs for like 5 minutes per 60 minutes of charging.
- Is Water resistant. Here’s a great advantage. Apparently this makes the trimmer easier to clean. A water-resistant trimmer is certainly nothing new, so I can’t complain.
- 7 different attachments, which are meant for both head and face trimming. You get a stubble comb, mustache and beard comb, min-foil shaver, nose trimmer, detail trimmer, full-metal guard trimmer and hair clipper. How can a man go wrong with a stubble comb? Because, you know how much I love to comb my hair stubble. No offense to the manufacturers, but I think it’s hilarious how they all throw in the little combs. Whatever it takes to make you think you’re getting more for less, right? Honestly, though, back when I had long, girly hair, the combs would have been VERY useful, LOL. As a matter of fact, I probably bought at least 100 combs while on the job when I used to work retail. I would lose the comb I bought the day before and needed to look good for the ladies, so I’d just buy a new one at least once a week. Sad – I know.
- Just a side note – it seems a lot of guys buy a precision trimmer with the Philips Norelco QG336/42. I guess you got to trim the uni-brow sometime, right?
Now that the basic features are covered, let’s look at what else is important. This trimmer gives you 18 different length settings, so you shouldn’t have a problem getting the look that you want.
Something unique that I noticed about this trimmer is the fact that it has a ‘Turbo-Boost feature’, which is great for you gorillas out there who have thick, stubborn hair. However, a little word of caution – don’t use the Turbo feature when manscaping ‘certain’ areas, which will help you to avoid serious injury, LOL.
This trimmer from Phillips can do almost anything. It seriously has an attachment to accomplish almost anything. Now, if only the Turbo-Boost feature would work on my car. Oh well. The Philips Norelco QG3360/42 is almost twice the price of the cheaper models – I don’t really know what additional awesomeness you’re getting for the increased price.
I guess you’re getting a few extra features, such as the Turbo Boost, storage pouch (got to have this!), body-grooming attachment, body-trimming attachment and, of course, the comb! LOL.
My Shocking Conclusion
Heck, I’d pay for it just to get the comb and body-grooming shaver. However, it’s up to YOU. Oops, I almost forgot to tell you that this product has great reviews, and so does the Wahl 79300-400.
With only four 1-star reviews and nearly 10x that in 5-star reviews, I think consumers really enjoy this product.
