Rated 2 out of 5 by wilco Cheapest plastic I've ever seen.
This trimmer works well and is a great size. However, the guard is made from flimsy, brittle plastic that breaks easily. Just dropping the guard alone onto the shower floor is enough to break it. Plus, Panasonic does not offer a replacement guard for this unit, though they do for others.

The only thing that could use improvement is the charging process. There is no automatic shut off when the unit is fully charged. I ruined the battery of my last unit by overcharging it. Other than that it is a fine product.

Excellent hand held shaver trimmer product. I use it to shave my head. Quick adjustable length guide. Cordless is a plus. Comes with charger base. Highly recommend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Old Badger 31 Had to replace an obsolete beard trimmer
I had no luck finding a replacement cutting head for my older Panasonic (two AA batteries) trimmer, so investigated replacing it. Got great value in modern rechargeable one which is quieter, has a larger cutting head and works like a charm. Bought on sale for a good price, but would have paid full list happily for it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer I think it is in good quality with low price. However the disadvantage is that if the amount of hair cut off more hair accumulate in protective cases, it can not work unless you remove hair in the protective cover frequently.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Albee44 Best beard trimmer I've ever had.
I've worn a beard for over 40 years, and have used many assorted implements to keep it trimmed. I bought the ER224 several years ago, have been using it on a regular basis ever since, and plan to keep using it until one of us dies.
My only complaint would be that the comb attachment recently broke, and I am told that it is not possible to obtain a replacement. I was able to effect a repair of sorts, but would have been happier to have been able to replace the part.

Best trimmer I have ever used. It is easy to use and adjust.
Rated 4 out of 5 by GMan Useful beard trimmer with one drawback
The ER224S trimmer works well for keeping my beard in good shape. Battery life is ok, not stellar. Charges reasonably quickly.
I had to order a replacement comb after about 6 months of use - the comb needs to be removed and snapped on for cleaning. It developed a crack from this action which affects the comb's safe seating. Instead of just snapping it on and pulling it off somewhat forcefully there should be a release.
