I had this product for approximately one month and it stopped working. My previous trimmer no problems for over 2 years. Overall I'm very disappointed in the performance of this product series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stormm Great trimmer.
I had a earlier model from many, many years aso. It was pretty good. This one is excellent. Trims area perfectly. Has a lot of attachments the earlier model didn't have. Love the blue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChrisY Works great, but can't use attachment. Won't connect.
I got two NT9130's, one for my dad and one for me. The nose-clipper's default configuration, with the trimmer head attached, works wonderfully, with no pulling.
However, when trying to put on a rake-like attachment, the precision trimmer head, that looks like it's for sideburns, I can't get it to snap on. On that and the standard trimmer head, a debossed triangle is supposed to be aligned with another debossed triangle on the handle. Once those are aligned, a short clockwise turn locks the attachment onto the body.
This works fine for the standard trimmer head. For the rake-like precision trimmer head, it would not do this. So I looked inside the attachment and saw that a white-plastic, slot-like area in the attachment was different from the slot-like area in the standard trimmer head, about 90 degrees off.
Thinking it was a defect, I went to get my dad's, but his was the same. There was no way I was going to force a twist because I didn't want to break it. The amount of force needed for the standard trimmer head is modest.
After a first call to Norelco, the attendant and I convinced ourselves that no twist was necessary with the rake-like precision trimmer head, but turning on the motor with it like that left it wobbling, almost falling off.
I called Norelco back and talked to Liz. When I asked her to try putting the precision trimmer head on her in-house sample of the NT9130, she was surprised that she also could not get it to snap into place onto the base.
When I then asked her to try an older model, the NT8110, it DID snap and lock.
This unit is a nice, basic unit, but the attachment issue is something I'd rather not have, even if I have to get an older model that has attachments that snap on properly. I need to know if there is something I missed, which would be great, but the amount of force I applied to get the precision trimmer head to snap on was to the point at which, had I applied more, I thought I might break the unit.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dadscad Had no idea such a fantastic trimmer existed!
A must to have for any man. Works great for trimming unwanted hair in your ears and nose. It's so easy to use and keep clean. I highly recommend this Norelco product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OldGuy45 Good Update
Replaced my old Norelco all in one with this and a separate beard trimmer. Takes some getting used to but does the job very well. Quick and quiet and don't have to have it sitting on the counter taking up valuable real estate!

Clipper blades would function better if they were slightly longer.
