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. when my current shaver started trying to kill me by leaving really pronounced scratches on my face, i realised it was time for a change. i decided to go for this particular model as i had used philips shavers in the past. what a revelation!
Summary: As in previous reviews, this shaver does a very good job. I have bought Philips shavers ever since 1955 when serving in Germany with the Royal Air Force and have always been very satisfied with them, This one however is let down by the fact that it does not have a pouch or case so is confined to the house, being unsuitable as a travel model. For this purpose I have to use another Philips, which has at least has a box but again, not a travel pouch.
Summary: I have always used Philips rotary shavers so selecting this shaver which was reasonably priced was easy. The shaver was delivered as requested and did not disappoint. It gives a smooth shave and battery lasts for at least 2 weeks when used 1-2 times a day..
