Strengths: Good wet and dry, comfortable shave
I've been using this product for about 8 months, and it has been great. I used to try and use razors and other power trimmers to take care of unwanted hair. When I saw this product, I figured I would try it. Definitely worth the money, I get a close, clean, comfortable shave everytime, and no problems when taking care of some of the more sensitive areas. Great product.

Well, it was cheap
Strengths: Wet/dry op Rechargable Great marketing
Weakness: Doesn't work all that well Comb attachments are near worthless Cheap battery
I bought this to use wet in the shower. I would say it doesn't work as well as I thought it would. It takes several passes to remove hair and even then it doesn't get nearly as close as a blade does (with just a single stroke). The other reviewers are right about the attachments--they suck--difficult to put on and take off, and they just don't work as well as attachments for other shavers of this...

I bought this to use wet in the shower. I would say it doesn't work as well as I thought it would. It takes several passes to remove hair and even then it doesn't get nearly as close as a blade does (with just a single stroke).
The other reviewers are right about the attachments--they suck--difficult to put on and take off, and they just don't work as well as attachments for other shavers of this type.
Finally, the battery seems to be a cheap nickel metal hydride type with memory, as the manual warns to let the razor's battery die completely before charging it again (which takes eight hours--best to do it before bed I guess). A lithium battery would not have added that much to the cost and allows for more flexible charging.
Also, it was pretty dumb to make the cradle and AC adapter use different plugs. This means that if you're traveling you need to bring the bulky purple cradle as well as the charger--just stupid.
But hey, the thing is $30, works adequately, and is wet/dry, so I can't complain too much. Hopefully Philips will make some improvements in next year's Bodygroom.

Strengths: Long battery life. Lightweight and cordless. Simply works very well.
Weakness: None really, though Phillips had a rebate for this on their website which was corrupt every time I tried to download.
It's a product I can recommend to others. Very handy to have (except for nose/ear which another product works well for that). The battery lasts a long time as well. Safe and effective; doesn't cut up skin like a traditional electric razor cutter.

Strengths: Well-built, can be used in the shower, great for sensitive areas
Weakness: The attachments don't work well (i.e. difficult to trim hair with the attachments)
The body groom is a great shaver to clean up hairy areas all over your body. It's gentle and doesn't irritate sensitive areas, and doesn't give you ingrown hairs that normal shaving might leave you. Aside from the one weakness mentioned above, it's a solid product.

Strengths: no cord, good maneuverability
Weakness: does not work well in shower
I really like this product. I bought if for my son and he really liked it. I decided to buy one for myself. I use it mainly to trim my sideburns and clean up my neck hair in between haircuts. It is very gentle but i use it more with the guards. It is a safe product to use but this is a trade off with the fact that the guards are pretty flimsy.
