    I have the Philips Norelco BeardTrimmer 7300, bought 6 months ago. Internet said it was the best one. I really like it. And 2.5 yr warranty

    The best beard trimmer for "growing out" facial hair is a good pair of stainless steel scissors and an assortment of combs.

    I got this one as well on the interweb's recommendation, and I'm a bit underwhelmed. I had a previous version of a Philips Norelco that performed better in many respects. The guard on this one bothers me a bit (sometimes it catches on hair or pinches skin) and I find that it doesn't give as even of a beard trim. Note that I keep my beard somewhat short (I use the 5mm length), which means I need a legit even trim otherwise it'll look patchy. I may try out a Wahl or similar hair trimmer to see if it turns out better, but haven't gotten around to buying one.

    For last 15 years I have been using Wahl. First one lasted about 10 years, and this one is on its 5th. Lithium Ion version seems to be around $40 everywhere ;Made in America.

    I have a cheap trimmer and I notice the guards are too long for the area directly under my nose. It bugs me to not get that section even. Am I the only one annoyed with this? Do you think one of the trimmers you guys already suggested would be better?

    I use a mid-range norelco that's probably 10 years old. It does the job. I have, in the past, kept my beard pretty short but this winter it's getting bushy, maybe 2 inches or so. At this point i'm mostly just cleaning it up with scissors. I'm trying to let the mustache area grow and it's pretty much the most annoying thing ever. in a few weeks it should be long enough to kinda "train" away from my mouth hopefully.

    Following up on this post, I got a Wahl Lithium Ion trimmer and it's pretty fantastic. I don't really need anything crazy, but it does the job well and gives a nice consistent trim.

    Wahl for sure. Lithium battery is convenient, but they end up losing power after 1-2 years. If you have an outlet close to your sink, I would get a Wahl peanut. It's small, does the job better than anything else, and no worries about batteries etc.
