For some reason.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nickedchin nice shaver, poor foils
BG2038 is all around nice, comfortable to grip, reaches well with its extender...
The foils, however are poor. I'm averaging 3 maybe 4 months at most before they wear out. Characteristically you can tell yours is getting ready to start shredding its self by how fast & hot the foil heats up when shaving. The hotter & more quickly it heats up, the sooner it's going to give out. Or you'll notice it feels like your face is getting scratched up even before it develops a rip in the foil.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shaver1 foils fall out, expensive, no product support
same as everyone else, works great if you can keep the foils in, they fall out constantly, no fun to dig out of the toilet, they wear out in few months, you cant find them except online, cannot find in any store, thought I would give them the benefit of doubt and buy a different model groomer, the one that has three complete heads that swap out, but you cannot find a replacement foil for the body groom head anywhere, I think their plan is for you to have to buy a complete new unit every few months or they would have replacement foils readily available, and the price on the older model foils are ridiculous anyway, I guess I will have to try another brand, Phillips really leaves you no choice, frustrating

Rated 4 out of 5 by Superman52 The good + Bad
Everyone is right on the foil part how the blades dull on trimming and shaving. As for popping part they didn't reinstall the foil right. It seems the the designer is making and developing. New blades. I bought mine around half year...can't find blades for mine. I like mine...just waiting on restock online can't find in stores.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pmcevoy82 It's not worth the price
I own a BG2040 I have used it for about a month now. The face shaving foil end is constantly popping out. The foil has worn out extremely fast, much faster than 12 months. I still use it to buzz my head and trim stubble. I just wish the foil end would remain in the unit while using the product. As well as the foils not wearing out so fast. It recharges quickly and is an all around good product. There is a flaw though and it seems like I am not the only customer to experience it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Maplenut Great performance, until the foil fails
I have to agree with the several other reviewers who like this shaver at first, but are disappointed by the apparent design flaw that allows the shaver head foil to pop out. It happened to two of them that I've owned. I thought that maybe I had done some damage to my first one, and so gave it the benefit of the doubt, and purchased another one. I was careful with the second unit, but again, the foil became dislodged, and I can't (with my considerable mechanical aptitude) get it to mount back into the shaver head. Yes, it's really a design flaw, not rough use. Maybe the "PRO" version has this worked out?

Rated 4 out of 5 by ThatOneGuyFromFlorida I don't know what everyone is complaining about.
I don't know what everyone is complaining about. I have OCD, and I feel the need to bleach my razors in-between uses. This razor head lasted me THREE whole years before the constant soaking in bleach oxidized it. Occasionally, if my pit hair was long enough it might get caught and pop out... but that's not really a big deal. I happened maybe once in a while. I consider myself a harry guy, and if these people say the razor head is popping out all the time then they’re not holding it correctly, or they’re feverishly trying to trim their chest, pits, and back in less than 30 seconds. Quit dogging on a good product.
