Oh, my, god. Simply the worst trimmer I have ever tried. I continuously look for a better trimmer. I hold out hope for one that is truly a good trimmer. So far, the best I've had was the Panasonic ER-GN30-K Nose Ear Hair Trimmer. This one barely turns the blades and hurts! Going to try to return it and get the Panasonic one. Perhaps if you have very fine hair this would be ok.
