Philips Norelco QT4070 Review – Vacuum Beard and Stubble Trimmer
Time after time, product after product, Philips Norelco continues to put out quality products meant to help men keep their facial hair trimmed and neat. That is an important thing for men today, especially those looking to keep up in the tough job market. As you look for products that can make cleaning your beard easy to do, you will see the QT4070 Pro and you may be inclined to spend $60 for it. If you make that purchase, it is something you will not regret later on.
Despite its costly price compared to other beard trimmers, the QT4070 will make the shaving and trimming process simple. The state of the art design makes it one of a kind compared to other trimmers on the market. Among the incredible design features of this trimmer is the vacuum system that was integrated into the design. If you ask the girlfriend or wife of any man that uses an electronic beard trimmer what their biggest complaint would be is the mess of hairs that is thrown around the sink. With this vacuum, the trimmer catches all those loose hairs and keeps your sink clean. Not only will your sink require no maintenance after use, neither will the trimmer itself. It requires no oiling and is essentially maintenance free and ready for you to use at all times.
Number of Length Options
Another design feature Philips added to this trimmer that sets it apart from the competition is 19 length settings. It might be easy to get confused and hit the wrong number with other trimmers, but the QT4070 instituted a bright multifunctional display that tells you what setting you are on. The display will also show you the battery life which will help you determine when you need to get a little more boost out of the unit. The process of changing between lengths is easy too as you simply need to hit the zoom lock wheel back and forth to get to your desired length. Equipped on the trimmer is an adjustable comb that glides along the contour of your face while shaving. This allows you to get the proper cut from side to side without any high or low spots.
Motor Speed and Power
With the integrated vacuum, this trimmer makes trimming down your hockey playoff beard easy. Instead of having to go to the yard to cut off the excess hair before making it neat in the bathroom, between the vacuum and the one-touch Turbo Power feature that increases the fan speed and cuts through thicker hair, your beard won’t stand a chance and there won’t be a mess to clean up.
This is a unit that can be used cordless after charging its lithium battery for an hour or corded if you can’t wait for it to charge. This trimmer is ideal for travel as there is a lock to ensure that it doesn’t turn on inside your suitcase and fits comfortably inside an included pouch.
Some experienced Norelco trimmer users may wonder what the difference between the QT4070 and the QT4050 is. The QT4070 is an upgraded version of the QT4050. While a lot of the features are the same, the latter has some different qualities. The QT4050 has 18 length settings between 1mm and 18mm to choose from, but doesn’t include a Turbo Boost option or a travel lock. The battery, although still a lithium ion, takes eight hours to fully charge and still gives the same amount of usage time (50 minutes).
Whether you choose the QT4070 or the QT4050, you are getting a quality product. The QT4070 will only cost about $5 more than the unit it replaced and with the amount of extras and features you are getting, it is worth every penny.
