Patented Precision Trimming Technology

The Philips Norelco NT9110 electric trimmer makes use of a patented trimming technology that keeps the hair being trimmed from being pulled. It promises no eye watering experience when trimming the nose and ear hair.
This electric nose and ear trimmer is built with the tube shave technology that assures quick cutting of hair in just a single stroke. The tube shave technology also allows users to trim near the skin surface without hurting the skin. Its blade is also protected by an ultra-thin foil to avoid nicking of the skin.

But the tube shave technology may not be effective in cutting the hair in a fast and simple way as some users have observed. There is a noticeable amount of users who are highly dissatisfied with the performance of this product as it fails to deliver its promise of trimming unwanted hair with just one stroke.

“Doesn’t get all of my nose hair but gets the visible stuff,”- User comment from Amazon.

“I love the design and it feels well made and feels very powerful. However, it just doesn’t cut very well. I have to go over the same area either in my nose or ear numerous times and even then it misses a lot.”-User comment from Amazon

Ease of Use

The Philips Norelco NT9110 Precision electric trimmer is lightweight and ergonomically designed. Its handle is made of soft touch material for the comfort of the users. This trimmer is also built with a back pattern at the handle for better control while trimming unwanted hair.

The head is slightly bent to allow the trimmer to come close to the hard to reach areas inside the ears and nose. It also has an OFF/ON indicator.

A number of users, however, complained of the products packaging saying that taking the trimmer out of its original packaging is a daunting and challenging task.

“The packaging was a challenge to open.” –Amazon user comment

“The packaging makes it difficult to get the unit out of the plastic without risk of cutting yourself.”- – Amazon user comment

Easy to clean

This electric hair trimmer is also easy to maintain as users can simply place the trimmer under running water to clean the product. But you may also want to take more time to clean this electric trimmer to make it last longer given that the trimmer may stop from working if dirt gets in the trimming blades. Users are strongly advised to soak the cutter in warm water with soap for about two minutes to ensure that no dirt and excess hair blocks the trimming feature. This will prolong the life and durability of this trimmer.

The majority of those who have tried this electric nose and ear trimmer vouch that it delivers its promise of no pull hair trimming experience.

“It works as hoped. Plenty of power and precision for the intended purpose. Trims reasonably close without nicking.” – Amazon User comment

“Love it. Safe, doesn’t hurt your skin or pull the hair, cuts everything neatly needs very little maintenance/cleaning unless you use it in your nose and is pretty quiet. Still wonder why I did not buy something like this years ago! Get it- you won’t regret it.”– – Amazon User comment

There are, however, a good number of users who complain about the effectiveness of this electric trimmer in trimming visible hair quickly as advertised.

“This is a very weak and useless trimmer. I have had used Panasonic before, and I am back to using Panasonic. This one lasted more than 2 months maybe, but I really never used it that much to begin with. You will miss hair with this thing or else you will spend a long time doing a 1 minute job.” – Amazon User comment

Plus, many consumers—a number that’s hard to ignore– have also questioned the durability of the Philips Norelco NT9110 Precision Nose and Ear Trimmer claiming that the product has quit working after a few months or after a few times of use.

“This worked the first two times I used it, then it died. There’s no excuse for such poor product quality!!! And yes, I checked the battery, it’s still good. Even tried a new one. But the trimmer just won’t even turn on.
Bummer!!! Wish I had known it only had a 1 month return time – I’m late by ONE DAY! Very unhappy!”– Amazon User comment

“This product is awful. It worked well twice, and now it’s completely broken– what a piece of crap. I expected more from a name brand product.” — Amazon User comment
