Remington MB-200 Titanium Moustache and Beard Trimmer Review

by Chris Glasner

First, a little background. I’m pretty hard on my beard trimmers because I’ve used so many of them and pretty much have high expectations on what each trimmer should do for my beard/goatee. I’ve gone through so many different ones over the years and I hadn’t found many great trimmers (many were poorly made) but the Remington MB-200 Titanium Trimmer was one that really impressed me.

Priced at around $30, this is a mid-tier trimmer that does its job surprisingly well. It’s got a great design and while you can’t really tell from the picture, its fantastic to hold and use. Not too heavy and not too plastic-y as well. It’s also small enough to be fairly portable and I do bring it along while traveling. Having owned it for more than a year, its still working pretty well. It’s durability under long-term use is another great point about it.

This elegant beard and mustache trimmer comes with Titanium coated blades for clear shaving and a easy to use zoom wheel to manage length settings. It’s not super fancy, it’s not expensive but it does the job and that’s all I care about! Here are my impressions so far…

Pros

  • Trims the first time — I used to get really annoyed with other electric trimmers I’ve used in the past because you had to go over the same spot so many times that you might as well have just done it yourself with a pair of scissors. The Remington gives you a great trim on the first pass.
  • Trimming adjustments don’t slip — This was another gripe I had with previous trimmers. Too much pressure and the length would change. That doesn’t happen with the Remington. Just set the length with the scrolling wheel and it stays put.
  • No lube needed — With my old trimmers they were constantly seizing up if I didn’t oil them. I use the Remington almost every day and haven’t had to oil the blades once.
  • Removable head – The head comes off easily so you can use the blade to trim the edge of your beard, which is handy if you want a nice clean line.
  • Powerful – I have very thick facial hair that has killed a number of trimmers in the past, so it was nice to find one that can really power through my beard without slowing to a crawl and ripping hairs out rather than cutting.
  • Holds a charge — They obviously put a good quality battery in the Remington MB-200 because this sucker stays charged for a couple weeks at least, which is great because I don’t have to pack a charger now.
  • Easy to clean — The head lifts right off which makes it easy to keep clean.
  • Cordless — I really hate being tied to the wall with a cord. Plus outlets are at a premium in our bathroom so I keep the charger in the bedroom and just grab the trimmer, use it and put it back.

Cons

  • No progress indicator — This is just a minor gripe. I wish there were bars or something to indicate how much of a charge was left.
  • No charging dock — Again, this is only a minor annoyance. I wish there was a charging dock for it to stand up in but it’s not a huge deal. I just lay mine on the nightstand.

Bottom Line

My Remington MB-200 has seen pretty regular action for a little over a month now and so far I couldn’t be happier. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of a $100 trimmer but I don’t need all of that. I just need a trimmer that is reliable and gets the job done, and this one certainly does. For the price and the features you get, I don’t think you’re going to find a better trimmer out there. Recommended.
