Summary: I have had this charger for almost five years now, which is a real testament to the durability of Philips' products. For such a reasonably priced shaver, it provides a surprisingly close shave, which just goes to show that you do not need to spend hundreds of pounds on a shaver for a quality...

Unbeatable shave for the price. (Please see update)

Looking at the price of this one, I decided to buy a replacement as the rechargeable battery has given up the ghost. It's a great shaver for the price and has a fast charge which is handy.
