Very poor product

I bought this item as a replacement for my previous beard trimmer that had lasted for years. However, due to the poor quality of blade cutting and slow speed, I am constantly frustrated by the Braun BT5010. I have finally given up on it and will look to find a better one to replace it - which shouldn't be too hard!

No, I do not recommend this product.

Braun Shaver

I have been using the Braun Shaver for a good few weeks now which I received for free from Braun to test and am very impressed with the quality of the shave it gives. Usually when I use trimmers I tend to get pulling sometimes on the odd strand and have to constantly go over the same area to achieve a neat level cut. But with the this shaver it is one light stroke once over and the hair is instantly shaved without having to go over and over it. I love it! It definitely makes getting ready in the morning that much easier and quicker. I highly recommend it. It is reasonably priced and well within anybody's budget which is the one question I would ask first before anything! Great Product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Good for hair trimming

When i ordered this product for free from Braun first i thought it will be a dual purpose one for both beard and hair.Arrived in good condition not a big box, first impression was it got very sleek design start liking it from first sight. Like the power button and hair trimming tools.I charged it for 30 min before i start no issues with that. Thinking to do a clean shave.When i started it was ok need to give more pressure and speed is not to great.Second time when i tried to trim my hair with settings 6 was actually good better than i expected.Finally i can recommend this product if someone whats to use mainly for hair and beard trimming, Not for clean shave.

First thoughts: Not right for me

I think if you regularly trim your beard (daily or every other day) this would work really well. I trim my beard once a week down to 5mm and when I did this today it couldn't handle the amount of hair.I also wasn't confident at first about the length I was cutting to, the addition of mm to the numbers on the length wheel would be a quick fix for this as I had to root through the owners manual to confirm what I expected.On a positive though it out performs my current clippers (Phillips headgroom) when trimming my moustache, and I can see it working well.

Not bad for my first try of a beard trimmer

I received this trimmer for free from Braun as a trial. I've never used a beard trimmer that's aimed to maintain a specific length of facial hair, only those that give a (relatively) clean shave. On opening the BT5010 I was impressed by the simplicity of the dial to adjust the desired length and overall appreciated the simple design. The attachment is easy to clip on and off which I found to be necessary frequently during use to get rid of hair build up.Pros:- It's incredibly quiet compared to other electric razors I have used.- There are a number of length options, from 1mm to 10mm (in 0.5 increments)- The design is nice and simple- The trimming attachment is easily removed and when used without the trimmer is excellent at tidying up edgesCons:- It's a little too bulky for my face. My jawline is quite sharp and I found it very difficult to trim all areas to the same length. Eventually I managed to but it took a very long time and on occasions I had to do it without the attachment.- Similarly, the shape doesn't lend itself to getting under the chin and around some places of the face.Overall, for my first use of a trimmer designed to cut to a specific length I find it gets the job done even if it requires a bit of effort to make sure you get there. No one wants to have a few extra long hairs! Depending on the price I'd certainly buy it and will continue to use it from here. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A tiny bit rough round the edges

I was very excited when I got the email to say Braun were sending me this product to try for free. When I first opened the packaging, this felt like a premium product, and I wasn't too disappointed. With a brand like Braun, I know what I am getting, and that is high quality. This was no different: simple to operate, with good results.I would like the option to have a digital length display, but that is a personal preference, and would not deter me from recommending it to friends/family.The results were great, and I have no complaints, just little niggles. I found the charger wire to slightly 'wobble' and not feel as secure as it should be, but that seems to happen with every grooming product.Overall, I am very happy with it, and would recommend it to anyone.

Mr Joe Bowen

I think this product is really handy and gives users an opportunity to be creative with their facial hair. There was no style I couldn't achieve with this trimmer. The only downfall is that I could not make small thin styles with it as the razors were too wide and unable to take them off. But overall an excellent product and unlike most beard trimmers, when in a rush it did not cut me, and was safe enough and small enough to carry around with me. They were even sharp enough to cut my head hair with. Brilliant and even cut! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A decent piece of kit

So I have been lucky enough to get a free Braun 5010 beard trimmer courtesy of Braun to try and post a review.So here it goes....On opening the box the product packaging makes the trimmer look good, it's well presented and packaged to ensure no damage.I opened the packaging and used the trimmer which had some charge in it straight away.The trimmer comes with a cover which allows you to select the length of trim in full or half measurements and this is via the dial system on the top.When removing this cover its a straight shaver type device.I used the device to tidy the edges which with the guard removed it very easy and gives a good view for accurate trimming. I was able to trim and shape with ease and looked very good.I have used this trimmer four or five times and still haven't had to charge it yet.I would buy this device for either myself or as a present for someone.A great product and thank you Braun for the freebie to product test.

my verdict

This product was received for Free via Buzz agent for testingThis is a powerful and adjustable beard trimmer it fits very comfortable in the hand and the soft touch texture is great if used wet to avoid the trimmer getting slippery. A previous complaint with both stubble and hair trimmers were how sharp and spiky the clip-on combs often are - you sometimes feel like you're dragging a fork across your face! The Braun avoids this issue.The trimmer doesn't take long to charge and manages to hold its battery strength well, however it is fitted with a two-pin plug which means you can only use it with a shaving socket (i.e. in the bathroom) or you'll have to buy an adaptor.Cleaning and maintenance was easy, just rinse the head under the tap when you're finished. I needed to use a small brush to dislodge some "trapped" hair once but unless you have very small fine hair this shouldn't present a problem.Overall I couldn't find anything to fault, if you're in the market for such a trimmer then this Braun has to be one of better models on the market especially for such a reasonable price that I have seen.

Braun Beard Trimmer no match for Babyliss

I couldn’t wait for this trimmer to arrive. Firstly because I was amazed to be able to try one completely free of charge, but mainly because the timing was impeccable given that my trusty Babyliss stubble trimmer died only 1 week before. What better time to try a different brand!I know the Braun 5010 is modeled as a beard trimmer and not a stubble trimmer. I usually keep my beard somewhere between stubble and bush and so the shaver may not have been perfect for this length and appears more suited to longer beard types. Initial inspections reveal what feels to be a sturdy trimmer, well weighted and easy to hold and use. The attachments and peripheries however feel decidedly cheap. The clip on dial-adjusted length guide is flimsy at best and I’m sure wouldn’t survive a fall. I wouldn’t pay too much attention to the supposed length settings as in all honesty once used the length of my beard appeared different from one section to another. The charger suffers too from apparent budget limits. The cord feels like it has been designed to biodegrade within a month of opening and certainly doesn’t look like it will survive for the life of the shaver.The (one and only) good point: Price. The unit has been introduced into an already saturated market, but aimed at the lowerend and so im sure will be competitive and bought on mass. Personally after spending some time with it, the cheapness begins to shine through and I’d look to pay an extra £10 for a more quality product. The bad point(s):overall quality and substandard performance. As I say I am used to using the Babyliss istubble to trim by beard. This device is smaller than the Braun, more ergonomically designed and quicker to use. The istubble also has a spring loaded cutting blade, meaning it swivels and turns with the contours of your face to give a uniform length of hair. This is the biggest downside to the Braun. The cutting unit is fixed in place and so you end up with longer hairs around the angle of your jaw that you just can’t seem to get to. I ended up going over the same areas repeatedly but still ended up looking like I’d never shaved before.Overall if price is the main factor in deciding which product to buy, go for the Braun. If however you are looking to buy an item that lasts and actually delivers a trim that allows you to be seen in public, spend a bit extra and seek out the competition.
