Summary: Philips HQ6990 6900 Series Rechargeable Rotary Male Shaver THE PRODUCT IS FINE, BUT WHEN I FOUND THAT THE CUTTING BLADES NEED TO BE REPLACED EVERY 2 YEARS AND COST MORE THAN THE SHAVER, IT SEEMS IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO BIN IT AND BUY A NEW ONE. NOT VERY GOOD FOR THE ENVIROMENT I THINK!!!!!
Summary: This shaver is an absolute bargain,not only due to the price but the fact it does a great job,giving a close shave fast with minimum fuss.There is really no point in spending over £100 on a shaver with fancy gimicks,if you want something that just does the job and well,then i recommend this product.
Summary: I found it cheaper to buy this new Philips HQ6990 than replace the heads on my old Philips. I have used this style of shaver for many years and very happy with. This shaver is much quieter than my old one and appears to hold the charge well.
Summary: i have used an electric shaver almost exclusively for the last 20 years or so, and i am aware of their shortcomings when compared to a wet shave. that said, i have always found my electric shavers to be adequate for the task.
Excerpt: Philips is a huge brand when it comes to many items so when I saw this shaver going for just less than thirty five pounds at John Lewis recently I wanted to make the purchase quickly. At first I noticed how nice the product was to pick up and use.
This shaver provides a really good shave and is good value for money.

Excerpt: I received this Philips HQ6990 shaver around 9 months ago. Since then I have used this approximately every 5 days. This shaver provides a very comfortable shave and it is very effective. I have found that this shaver gives a very close shave when first charged.
Excellent, as expected, but not the ultimate shaver.

Summary: This is my third Philips shaver. Previously I had tried and rejected Ronson, Braun, and two Remingtons, each of those four after just a few months, for various reasons including the very short life of the very expensive heads, high levels of skin irritation, and being mains only.

Summary: This is the fifth philips razor I have purchased over the past fifty years, having also owned Remingtons and Brauns. I have always found Philips gives the better shave. and this 6990 is very good as it is quiet and fast, the other aforementioned types are quite noisy.
