The high-quality ceramic cutters on these blades stay sharper longer and require less sharpening than standard steel blades. Because ceramic blades do not heat up, they reduce the risk of friction burns.
Other Thoughts:it would be nicer if the recharge plug fit directly into the storage unit -- as it stands you have to take the groomer out in order to plug it in and then it won't stand in the storage unit until it is unplugged.
Other Thoughts:I'm used to using a Conair hair trimmer to cut my own hair, so when the Vine program offered this, I was really excited. On first receiving it, I had my doubts--it's narrower than your average hair trimmer, the battery life is only 35 minutes, and it can't be used plugged into the wall. However, after a full charge, this thing cut my hair in half the time my Conair does!
Other Thoughts:The product does what it is supposed to do, and does it well. I have not encountered the "tears in my eyes from using the nose hair trimmer" scenario (but then again the inside of my nose doesn't look like undergrowth in the Amazon Rain Forest), and the trimmer guides are awesome. As stated clean up is as simple as turning on your faucet, and the storage base keeps the unit and accessories clean and in one place.
