Please.

For now let's say price is no object, I just want to get an understanding of the market.

What, you're the type of guy who needs the Lamborghini of beard trimmers? I really don't think you're going to find a huge range out there.

I have one of those semi-cheap Philips ones with the vacuum that is supposed suck the cut hairs into a little compartment that you empty-out. The thing cuts decent, but the vacuum sucker doesn't work at all.

I have a Wahl and no complaints. http://trimmers.wahl.com/goatee_view.cfm?ID=1 The great thing about mine is that it has very few pieces. The head spins and has a narrow, and "regular" (wider) settings. There is also a single, adjustable gaurd that has something like 8 settings so you aren't constantly looking for a guard. A single charge seems to last quite a long time. After a few years of neglect, the blades are a bit rusted, but this hasn't affected performance at all. I'd definitely buy another.

I'm looking for a beard/stubble trimmer myself. I've never used one but my brother has, and he says that the hairs lie flat and that the comb/guard doesn't raise them and the clutting head misses them. This is a problem that I foresaw before he even told me that. I can imagine that it would be difficult for these trimmers to catch hairs which aren't beyond a certain, fairly long, length.

My brother's trimmer was a pretty cheap one, but looking at the range available they all seem to have the same basic design.

Can anyone give me any advice?

To trim your facial hair without having to replace a trimmer every 3 months, you need to get a high quality one. Most low priced beard trimmers run into battery problems as you may know. My recommendation would be the Philips Norelco QT4050 or 4070. It isnt even that expensive, you can find them for $30 and $50 respectively in many places.

I bought an Andis T-Outliner on Ebay and it was money well spent...about $60 give or take. It is what barbers use for fine trimming and edging. I highly recommend it.
