Really great shaver and edger ... not so good as a trimmer
We have two of these in our house.
For shaping the edge of my beard and shaving my neck and facial cheek area, this little shaver is the best I have used in a long time. It shaves much closer than any trimmer I have used without being as close or as rash-inducing as a blade razor or other rotary or foil type electric shavers I have used.
As a shaver and and edge tool, I would rate it 10/10.
Fitting the adjustable trimmer head and attempting to trim my beard has however, been an absolute fail.
Once the trimmer head is fitted, the shaver just does not cut at all. Doesn't matter what setting I try, it just does not cut the hair.
Good razor however not sure if defective blade
After extensive research I deceived to fork out for this razor for a few reasons. Can shave wet or dry, the reviews that is pretty close to a real blade shave and the 3 month life of the blade. I’ve now used it 5 times and as much as I’m happy with the shave (I’m not an everyday shaver) I’ve shaved various lengths from 2 day stubble to lastest 10 day lazy stretch over Xmas. However I’m less than happy the state of the blade and showing signs already it’s not going to last it’s advertised rate. Pics attached. Maybe I’ve just got a dodgy one either way not happy if I’m having to spend $25 on a new blade so early. I’d give the razor 4 stars for its cutting etc and 2 for the blade life.
Best Shaver I've Ever Owned
Yeah. It's great. It's the best shaver I've ever owned. The best part about it is the flexible head and the fact that the blades are replaceable. Ok, they do cost quite a bit to replace but, it beats having to buy a new machine everytime it gets blunt. It's also waterproof and the battery lasts a very long time. I don't even both charging it between shaves. Very happy with this product. I recommend shaving while in the shower as the hairs just wash away, and in the one time I used it dry, I did nick myself near my Adam's apple. So be careful ne...ar that area if you need to go dry yourself.

But, if money is no object or there's a sale on, I'd go for the other one, as it includes a cool charging stand to put in your man cave.

What is the difference between QP6520/20 and 6510/20? Is it just the battery display and comb lengths?
