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...
Summary: The blades were as described and cheaper than most other sources. I niggled a bit as they arrived late and I only gave supplier 2**. However, the supplier immediately sent me an apology explaining delay and I would happily rate 5***** and use this company again.
Summary: Purchased for my father who is 88-years young, and who has wet shaved throughout his adult life. Due to his impaired mental ability he is having some difficulty in getting used to it, and he much prefers me to do it for him.
Summary: Theres a lot of reviews on this item. The bad ones are bull. Thers NOTHING wrong with it and have already paid for it in what I've saved on disposables. Almost zero rash now, no razorbrn or blood on my collar.
Summary: Had been using Braun shavers for last 30 yrs - good reliable, well made, fairly close shave, but if you couldn't be bothered to shave one day, the Braun simply wouldn't cope the next day with longer bristles of 2 day growth so ended up having to wet shave.
Summary: I'm 57. Why has it taken me four decades of shaving to discover the overwhelming superiority of Philips' shavers over all the others? I've spent the last few years with a mid-spec Braun, dragging with a heavy hand to achieve a finish that often had me reaching for the trusty BIC and foam to bring up...
Summary: I purchased this shaver as it was cheaper than replacing the worn out battery and cutters of my previous model, now 10 years old but of a very similar design. The new one is a little lighter and one charge lasts over a week.
Summary: I've had a fair few shavers in my time, many of them with bells and whistles galore and costing far too much. When I was contemplating this one, I saw that it cost less than replacing just the shaving heads of my Braun, and the Philips washable shaver I used to own.
Unbeatable shave for the price. (Please see update)

Summary: I've just been browsing a few reviews and after reading some of the "downgrades" decided to post my own views on this shaver which I bought Sept 2009 from Amazon. It is a more than adequate shaver for the price charged.
