Rated 4 out of 5 The Beat Goes On...
I purchased one of these in 1999; similar, but a different model number, the Conair GMT170 1.5V. That's 9 years that puppy lasted, until a small plastic part wore out in the drive. This newer model, the Conair GMT175W has replaced that particular part with brass. On the up side...my old Conair had a 1.5V DC motor with 3 AA batteries in parallel which made for a strong cut. On the down side...the new model has a 3V DC motor with 2 AA batteries in series...which cuts a little sluggish...but for the price, I'll tough that out.
When I bought the trimmer (11-18-2008) it was $9.96 with a 97¢ shipping charge. I jumped on that like a bum on a boloney sandwich. Arrived, UPS, in 4 days. Tried it out, works like it supposed to. I'm a happy camper. Matter of fact, I'm 66, and I'm goin' back in to buy one more of these. If they both last another 18 years...we oughta both wear out about the same time. How organized is that, huh?

This trimmer works good to keep my facial hair neatly trimmed, like I've been to the barber shop.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scapp70 terrific
This electric trimmer is amazing especially for the money. It cuts very easy, and with the adjustable height, it makes it simple to get the exact beard I was hoping for. Having said that, the only downside is that I wish that there was an AC alternative to the battery power, but it's a small niggle.
Rated 4 out of 5 by alamo455 Excellent for beard trimming! Haven't figured out how to take blade out for cleaning. But it does a great job for what I needed. Good product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ZJRH I had a trimmer that didnt have a little li[p on the side so i could trim around the ears easily. this one has a lip so it makes it a little harder but cuts good otherwise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CptUSNRet Replaced old model with this one and was disapoint
I had the exact same trimmer but the old model for the last 4 years and LOVED IT! So when I lost one of the combs for it I was just going to order a new comb, but then I found out the combs are 1/2 the price of a new one so I just bought a new one.
The new one is BIGGER unnecessarily so... and the tray for the new one is missing alot of what the old tray had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ZooeytheCat Conair 2 AA bats beard trimmer
This thing works just fine! And never a need to charge it. Goes everywhere with no charging cord to worry about. Two AA Batteries are inexpensive. This means I can take this thing camping, on a train, in a hot air balloon, I can even use this trimmer to outline my Doberman's ears!!! Hatchaa! Weighs next to nothing, small enough to fit in your vest pocket. I've used it 2 weeks now an still going on original batteries. I'll never by a plug in beard trimmer again.
Rated 1 out of 5 by aquaris did not work. returned to store.
Rated 4 out of 5 by FrankoD great product
I've used this trimmer for nearly a month with no real complaints. It could shave a smudge closer but overall this is well worth the money. Now lets see how long it lasts and performs.
Rated 4 out of 5 by mrspugsley very good for the money
I bought this product as a Christmas Gift for my husband and he has been very pleased with its performance so far. I would recommend this product at this time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by shopperinlove Great product
I bought it for my husband for christmas and he really likes it.
I didn't pay attention that it is battery operated, so that might be hard to keep working batteries in it, but other than that we like it.
