I, like other excited users, was very pleased with it's performance, it worked great, very close cut, powerful, easy to use, etc... performed great!

However! After a few uses(about 8 or so) I heard this horrendous grinding noise and the tip got really hot and even quit working... At first I thought replacing the battery...still the same problem...

Long story short, the blades inside the head are spring controlled.... after a few uses the springs just bust out and pushes the blades harshly against the tip head..thus creating the grinding noise that makes the battery and motor wear out..on top of that it inhibits cutting abilities(I tried it 3 times... by now it just rips out hairs if it can catch any...otherwise it's not really working at all).

I really wanted this to work.... it's a shame because it performed great the first few times, but like many(read the reviews!!! The good ones are from excited users who had just purchased it... I was like that too...as it performs good...then later, by design it fails....) My unit is not a lone, I have heard this from many other people who have owned this device.... They need to fix this issue by finding out how to retain those springs that hold the blades in.

Nature has a funny way of tormenting the male species as they age. It can be referred to as the "migrating hair" phenomena. This is when hair moves from where men want it - oh, say on their head - to where they don't really want it - say tufting out of their nose and ears. Consequently, as men age, they must groom certain areas to avoid looking like a bald Wookie.

Plucking is certainly one solution. But, watching a mature man tear up with every nose hair extracted is a pitiful site. Enter the Panasonic personal groomer. Trimming was never easier. This groomer is a powerful accessory to any mans trimming options.

First, this groomer is powerful enough to get the job done. My husband trimmed some substantial (salt and pepper might I add) nose hair with nary a wince. Please do not try to use rechargeable batteries, however, unless you want to endure some pulling (the trimmer actually stopped on one occasion with the rechargeable batteries - yuck!). The blades will not rotate fast enough for those tough nasal hairs without an alkaline battery. Eyebrows were easily mastered as well. Even trimming around the goatee was easily done. Cleaning the trimmer was easy too. It can be disassembled or ran under water for the cleaning process.

Other nice points: it has a cap for the cutting end and the battery is purported to last about a million years (really only two or three). In addition, it is fairly quiet. This is a nice feature for something one wants to stuff into their ears. The only reported drawback was a bit of a bite when pressing against his lips but holding it at a slight angle relieved this problem. All in all, a nice tool for taming a balding Wookie - and much cheaper than a light saber.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon October 25, 2011
This is the first time I've used a trimmer and I love it. Wasn't sure what to expect, whether it would hurt or if I would be sneezing all day. None of that happened. The trimmer is:

- very easy to set up
- requires a AA battery (not included)
- washable
- operates at an acceptable noise level (low humming sound)
- gets rid of hair with no pull or tuck feeling

I used this for my nose and ears and it worked great. The rounded cap on top has a blade on the inside, the blade is placed slightly lower than the tip of the cap. This helps avoid any skin tucks, making it completely safe to use. There is a small opening in the top cap that can be exposed by rotating the head of the trimmer. The opening here is what makes the trimmer washable, it lets water in to wash the blade and also drains it out.

Haven't tried other trimmers so I can't really compare but this one worked just fine and I'm sticking to it.

Years ago, I wanted a Panasonic and instead received a Remington as a gift. Hated but used it for years until finally I dropped it and broke the battery cover.

I was shocked to see the bad and mixed reviews on the other Panasonic trimmers. So, I went on Panasonic's site and looked at all the models. This one looks like a response to all of the negative reviews. I took a chance because there were no reviews about it on Amazon. Well, turns out it works GREAT. Very quiet and trims great. I was worried that it would be too large (as the photo appears), but it is actually small (the right size).

This product worked absolutely great for a while; the best I have ever had. Unfortunately it only lasted four months. (Amazon kindly gave me a refund when I called and explained my experience.

I have bought S I X Panasonic hair trimmers in the last eight years. Every single one of them failed. I believe I have sent in every single one of them to be repaired while they were still under warranty.

The latest one, the ER-GN30, was bought only four months ago. Yesterday it started making a loud buzzing noise, which it had not made previously.

I called the number on the warranty sheet enclosed with the product, and THEY tell me they do not fix ear and nose trimmers, and I have to send it to Texas, which address is not even on the warranty sheet.

This is the last Panasonic product I will ever buy.

The product worked very well for 6 weeks, and then promptly broke. I tried it with 4 different sets of fresh batteries, and it simply refuses to turn on. It was never dropped or mishandled, just lived its short existence in my medicine cabinet before failing completely.

My first experience sticking a battery-operated trimmer up my nose assuaged my previous apprehension. I wish I had bought Panasonic's trimmer years ago.

I am pleased to retire the pair of scissors and let the healing begin in my nostrils and ears. That fiendish tool often arrived as a free shaving kit add-on to a Father's Day gift along with a plastic comb and a pair of nail clippers. Barely suitable for trimming a mustache, the scissors (even those with rounded safety tips) were always only one jerky move away from drawing blood inside my body orifices.

Other reviewers complained that the trimmer `felt cheap' and questioned its durability. This Panasonic model is stamped "1.5V" and uses a single AA battery that is supposed to last about one year. That is good enough for me. I intend to use the trimmer with a delicate hand.

Yes, there are heavy-duty options for hirsute men whose family lineage extends to the Yeti, Sasquatch and Bigfoot tribes. The Shaper Image touts a model with dual cutting heads and rotary blades made from Swiss surgical stainless steel. "One interchangeable head has rotary blades that spin at 6,000 rpm!" Personally, I don't want anything up my nose spinning at 6,000 rpm. Do you really need a nose trimmer that requires as many D batteries as a flashlight or a vibrator?

In summary, the Panasonic Nose & Facial Hair Trimmer is lightweight, portable and both easy to use and easy to clean. My expectation is that it should last at least 2-3 years (Panasonic recommends replacing the blade every three years). If the model doesn't hold up, I'll report back the findings. Until then, I recommend this as an affordable and safer option than poking nose and aural cavities with a pair of sadistic scissors.

Rating: Five stars.

JULY 2012 UPDATE: The trimmer continues to perform as well as it did on the first day. I've changed the batteries once. Amazon has dropped the price over the past year, so the value is even better. According to Panasonic, the trimmer blades are built to last three years, which means your annual cost is a little more than $4, or about the same cost as a multi-pack of single-blade, disposable razors.

This is one of the most affordable trimmers and it gets the job done! I'm not sure I'd use it for facial hair grooming, as it's not precise enough... but I didn't buy it for that reason in the first place! It easily snips out those pesky little hairs in the ear and nostrils without pulling or pinching. Super easy to clean by turning the knob to the little "water" icon, and running it under the faucet!

This works well, better than the mangroomer one I had before. That lasted only a couple weeks, and was problematic from day one. This one is a little more solid. Easy to disassemble for cleaning, but as with most of these, doesn't really seem to spin very quickly. I kept half expecting a sharp stab of pain as a hair was ripped out painfully, but it did a good job of cutting. Other than a little tickling it did the job well and quickly.
Little noise, great price, and comes with a cap to top it off. Good deal.

I purchased both the Panasonic ER-GN30-k and the Wahl 5546-200. I had high hopes for the Wahl, but it didn't cut hair as close as the Panasonic did. There were some hairs that it just wouldn't touch (even though they're right there!). The Panasonic didn't have any problems.

The difference might be related to the design of the end of the blade guard, as the Wahl is wide open, where the Panasonic blade guard kind of wraps around the top or tip of the blade.

I would recommend the Panasonic over the Wahl by a mile.
