Norelco 8800 Shaver. some comments on 3rd attem[e wiht this model
2 weeks ago
Summary: I have used Norelco shavers since 1963. The previous (similar model was bought in 2010 Indicator lights went out in a year and batteries in 1 1/2 years. Replaced it and sure enough, indicator lights went out in a year. Tossed it and got a new Panasonic electric razor and after 6 months gave up.
Summary: Shaver shuts off if gripped normally because of the pressure sensitive switch on the grip of the handle. Overall speed at which it operates seems slower that my old Arcitec shaver, which also had a thinner head. I am not sure that there is much improvement over the Arcitec.
Summary: The shaver takes about 3-4 weeks for your beard and face to become accustom too. It provides a clean close shave and is easy to maintain. The flexable heads allow it to gently shave the heavier bearded areas without any painful or discomforting experiences.
Pros: smooth shave gentle on face & easy to maintain
Cons: sideburn trimmer is way to narrow, battery life between charges
Summary: The best shaver that I will own because of non irritation. I have used electric shavers for decades and this Philips results in the smoothest shave without my skin getting burned or nicked. I have sensitive skin and I want the best for care and results. The shave could not be closer and the charge time is ultra fast before being completely recharged.
this product is overrated, way overpriced and simply doesn't shave

Summary: Most im portantly it doesn't shave well at all. I have always had the norleco rotary shaver and was pretty happy with them until this one. Doesn't shave close at all, is uncomfortable, wasn't worth half the price. I could have bought five of the chaper models that would have worked better. Also no way to use it with the plug if you had to.
Summary: I have been shaving with Norelco electric shavers for 50 years (tried a few other brands but always came back), and this is by far the best shaver they have ever produced! The shave is close, fast and smooth and I shave dry without using anything else. Cleanup is also quick and easy as I'd recharging time. I strongly recommend this shaver!
