2.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic ER-GN30 is a better choice, December 26, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wahl Ear, Nose and Brow Lighted Trimmer #5546-200 (Health and Beauty)
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.

Since I was debating between the Panasonic and the Wahl, this review was the most beneficial. I think it's most likely due to Panasonics dual blad design that gets closer.

I also think it's very tacky that Jamie from Wahl posted here. Especially since there is nothing "customer service" can do to resolve an inferior design unless it's to inform the engineers that there are superior products out there.

Like Chris, I was also trying to decide between these two (Wahl's vs. the Panasonic ER-GN30k) so it I am thankful that you have given me your opinion for a direct comparison. However unlike Chris, I am impressed by the Wahl's rep who monitors the comments about their products and who-without having been asked by the customer- tries to "make good" to those customers who are less than satisfied. I wish all companies were as responsible as Wahl.

I've owned two Panasonic ER-GN30-K's. Both died within one month of ownership.

I'm not the OP, but I would have kept using this unit that I purchased if Wahl made replaceable blades and parts. Mine slowed down over time, despite attempts to maintain it and keep the blades/unit clean.

I'm still on my first ER-GN30-K - probably done 10 'trimmings'. It seems to help if you do the water rinse mode after each use.
