So let's start of with the size, it's quiet small but extremely handy. People say epilating hurts, but honestly if you're used or if you're okay with the pain caused by waxing, then this wouldn't be too much. According to me, it doesn't hurt at all, but some people who have used shaving as a method, may find this a little painful. Overall, this is a verygood device. Check the floor after you've finished epilating, surprise. You might find hair. Or I don't know if it's just me. The only con to this device is the noise. If you're a beginner, you might find this noise intimidating, but it's not like how it sounds. The noise is just loud. And also the device cannot be used unplugged, but I wouldn't mark that as a disadvantage, because the cord is pretty lengthy. It comes in only one speed, but that doesn't really matter. It still works amazing, and like I said people used to the pain of waxing may find this a better alternative. Overall, it's an excellent product.
