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. It was such good value, I bought two, one for me and another for my son.
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!
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. You have this black back and front and where the actual shaving heads are is this grey metallic colour which sort of highlights where the heads are.
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. However, after about 6 weeks of use the shaver noticeably misses hairs and feels generally much weaker, but this is to be expected. This can be sorted by charging causing it to go back to full power.
Summary: The shaver arrived promptly from Amazon on the basic delivery service. This model charges rapidly - in around an hour, and has a charge light that flashes indicating that charging is complete - a useful feature. It gives the normal close chave that all these type of shavers do when new, I suspect that the shaving performance will degrade as it reaches 2 years old, just like my previous Philips shavers.
