If it's the M50-Cx, then you made a good choice. Unfortunately for me, I realized that the reason why they were on sale was due to the fact that the new 2016 models are arriving soon, so depending on how much those cost, this one may be going back! In the meantime, I'll enjoy this one. The 2016 M-series has HDR (High Dynamic Range), some other nice features as well as an Android tablet as a remote so we'll see what the price difference is.

Anyway, presuming you picked up the M50, go ahead and take a look at this link to calibrate your set:

It's "Axe" branded, but it's a Phillips/Norelco. I haven't used it a ton, but I've liked it so far. FWIW, I'm a guinea (Italian), have THICK facial hair and it does the trick. IIRC, you can use use it with the cord if the battery is dead which was a feature I wanted.

BTW, I've purchased 2 of these already, one for my son and one for me. So, thanks

That's kinda creepy...I just used mine the other day and I was wondering how you made out with yours. You're welcome, glad it works for you.

Welp, I can see senility is alive and well with me!

It's a good little trimmer for sure.

Picked up Eventide's SPACE and an Electro Harmonix Mel9 instead of going to Camden. Malekko Charlie Foxtrot is on the way! Feeling pretty excited about these purchases!

Just ordered the rare and out of print "New Train" by the extremely talented and underrated Paul Pena. Really excited to finally get this.

I just ordered one of these. Only made in batches of 50. Very limited run item. Made by a member of Royal Bangs from Austin Texas. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

Recent purchase(s) you're excited about

This OPPO universal UHD player arrived a few weeks ago to pair with my 3-month old Vizio P50 4K UHD display :

Just picked up a Kavu Rope Sling bag in camo. Got a black one for my lady one for her birthday and she loves it. She uses it for concerts and such and it's perfect so I got envious and picked one up for myself:

I don't know why I did it, but I did it. This message is being typed from my recently purchased MacBook Pro. So many new things to learn on this thing. My last computer purchase was mid 2009.
