    Look at the Norelco Multigroom. It has a bunch of attachments for all over your body trimming. One of them is the same attachment as the Bodygroomer. Way versatile!

    I have used the Norelco Bodygroomer for many years. I don't use it to shave the "sensitive areas", but it does a good job. Also can use it to trim my face for the Scruff Look. The only bummer is I've never found replacement blade heads.

    Due to how busy i am with work and school, i've switched into low-maintenance mode so to say, but I do have a small Remington trimmer with two heads: a wand trimmer (for nose, brow, etc) and a regular flat trimmer with length attachments. The only real "manscaping" i do is practical and only during the winter. I usually shave around my nipples so that i can tape over them when i go jogging.

    I have it and hate it. In fact I don't even use it after a few uses. The battery life sucks and it just doesn't do job I expected it to.

    I totally agree - waste of money!

    That and it could shave closer, and it pinched my hair at first even when I trimmed my hair first. I tried to return it and the company promised and promised to send me the forms and never did. So I just kept it.

    After months, I retried, and somehow it worked better without pinches.
    I use it more lately just for some areas, plus from I don't feel like wet shaving.
    The battery life is a problem, and it isn't like a razor. It is handy when I am building up too much hair particularly around my shoulders, and just want to get a clean look.

    i have one, and i ABSOLUTELY hate it. It has cut my penis' shaft to bleed many times with the so called hypoallergenic shaving head. It have already developed a dark shadow on me, cuz every time i pick it up i will recall how it cut me and how painful it was, then my dick and balls will shrink..... So now i only use the trimmer head to cut off the longer hair, and use razor to shave off the hair on the balls and the shaft. Oh yea, the battery life is really bad.

    Thanks for all the replies. Who knew it would be a topic to excite so much interest.

    My feelings are generally positive. My body hair grooming routine overall is easier, but there's never one perfect product for everything, is there?

    I think it's great for 'down below': can give you smooth balls with no danger! Pretty good also for trimming the pubes to a respectable length. :-) So none of the pretty nasty problems one poster indicated, at least for me.

    If you want a smooth chest and abs, which I like (don't have much hair there to start with), then I'd score it lower. The hair will go but the stubble is there quickly on the chest. Better to finish off there with a razor, I find.

    Thanks guys - I'll consult you all more in future!
