Recommend me a beard/stubble trimmer

After several attempts to embrace the unshaven look....... feeling like I look like a tramp...... once I've got a week in and past the 5 oclock shadow look I quite like it.
 
I don't intend for it to turn into a beard so I need a trimmer soon.  I will have 2 weeks growth by the weekend so plan to tidy it up a little.  
 
I don't want to spend a fortune as I may get fed up and shave it off in a month but don't want a cheapo one that doesn't do the job properly.
 
Recommendations?

To be honest i couldn't find one good enough that trimmed it how I wanted it. It was either too short or wouldn't trim it evenly and looked patchy.

Scissors it is then!
 
I've actually got a trimmer, had it years..... I'm not sure if it's intended for hair or beard or both but I use it without the guard to trim my chest hair.  Because that's all I do with it I've lost all the heads/guards.  I have once attempted to trim my stubble with it but it's way to short and almost the equivalent of a day or 2's growth, so that's no good.

I have this and it does the job I literally start at my face and work my way down my back and chest. The floor resembles a dog grooming parlour. http://www.philips.co.uk/c-p/BG2036_32/bodygroom-series-5000-3-combs-3-5-and-7-mm-trim-50-min-use-1-hr-charge-back-shaving-attachment
 
Its a bit harsh on the face if you let it get to long but once a week is fine just moisturise after.

Usually on offer somewhere.  Look to pay £40/45.  It's fine for the price.

Get one that can be used from the mains as the battery will **** up after not too long.

This looks good as a starter.  I may get fed up and go clean shaven after a few weeks so don't want to spend too much.
 
I presume 10mm would leave you with more of a beard than stubble?  I don't want it to go too short.

Yeah I would class 1cm as a beard not stubble.

Another vote for this. I use the next model up and its perfect. Even when the beard is quite long and you look like cat weasel it tidies it up nicely.
 
I did have a babyliss one before and it was far too much faffing around.

Before I dropped and broke it this seemed to do a decent job:

It's this one.

Cheers that's the one I was looking at.  Seems worth the extra money for battery life if nothing else.
