Summary: I bought this at the end of last year so have had it for nearly a full year. The shaver is nt that great to be honest. I used to use an old philishave with the rotor head which did a decent job. I bought this thinking I was upgrading. Unfortunatly the shave is not very close at all. Above the jaw line is acceptable after many passes and contorted faces. Below the jawline is appalling.
Summary: Does it work, and is it worth it? The first question is easy to answer. This is a great shaver - it glides across the face and, unlike many electric shavers, it doesn't annoy my sensitive skin. The cleaning/charging really does clean. This is an important feature. Most people don't bother thoroughly cleaning their shaver after every use. Well, I certainly don't anyway, and a clean shaver means less irritation The cleaning dock ensures that you now will.
Summary: I don`t know if it`s the product or just me, but it does not shave properly around the neck area. Shaving on smooth parts of the face works perfect, but when passing over the neck area where is not that smooth (is bumpy, don`t know how to explain...) is not that accurate anymore. The cleaning kit is worth 5 stars, after each clean the unit looks/feels like new, the liquid held me about 6 months with a weekly manual clean and another cleaning session using the kit.
Summary: I've owned this shaver now for a good few months now and I can honestly say that I'm happy that I did buy it as it does a good job of a dry shave when you don't have the time for a wet shave. Also compared to my last Phillips shaver it does a much better job and it is easy to clean and maintain. All in all I am very happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend this shaver!
Summary: I've rarely been moved to write a review but I was so pleased with this product I felt I must. I had a Braun shaver that provided 10 years good service until the NiCad battery deteriorated to the point that it would only last for one shave. My wife then bought me a Philps razor as a present and not wanting to disapoint her I continued using it until it packed up after about 2 years.
