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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
CLIPPERS SO I CAN DO MY OWN SHAPE UP AND ALL THIS A GOOD PRODUCT

Sturdy, well-engineered product. Great price. Highly recommended.

good deal for the money, good for travel use
I bought this to replace an earlier version of the same trimmer. It lasted 5 years, and was working fine until I dropped it. Good basic trimmer, good price; what's not to like?
it works fine n good price
I've had this trimmer for over 4 years now and got it as a gift. It does work great but I finally worn it out by switching heads on it. The clip part is worn down. Today I will shop for a new one but a different brand. The case that it came with is terrible as it will not hold all my pieces in it.
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.
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.
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.
The delivery was on time without any hassle. I picked it up from the store. When I opened it at home from the box, it was broken. The attachment for the main blade attachment was broken from the body and it was never seen without opening the package. I have used the product in the past and it has been very useful however, the piece I got from walmart.com was broken.
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.
The nose and ear trimmer cannot be fit into the main trimmer, and it is not as shown in the picture. The product in the site shows as 12 items, but the product that I received was 11 items. I returned the first piece for the reasons mentioned above and re-ordered the same product hoping that I will receive the product without the flaws. But no luck and it disappointed me again. I am tired of this product. But the trimmer works fine.
