Does what I want-son and father agree and bought their own
19 August 2014
Summary: I have a full beard which I trim and I've always used regular razor and shaving cream to take care of neck and cheeks-some days I don't want to bother so the foil shaver works well enough (nothing beats a razor for closeness).
Pros: used for two months w/o having to charge it, solid sculpted feel to it, rubber ribs give good grip, easy to clean-just rinse off and air dry
Cons: on/off buttons are where thumb rests, so accidently turn off or turn on other end, i saw a nose-hair trimmer attachment-can't find it
Summary: Got this for my husband and he loves it. The only thing he would change would be the design of the cover on the foil shaver head end. Very hard to get off, always seems to get stuck or the whole shaver head comes off with the top!
Summary: If you want a trimmer this is ok. If you want a shaver this is ok too. My 4700 shaves better. This feels like the foils are dull. It misses alot of hair. As for the trimmer works the same way too. I rather have the YS524/41. Guess that will be my xmas present to myself.
Summary: I bought this item and with in a month it would no cut my beard. It did not cut good to start with so I had them to send new blades and it still does not cut good. I'm 67 and my beard isn't that tuff.
Summary: This product is nice and easy to use and it packs both shaver and trimmer in one device. However, it's not sharp enough to edge and shape beard lines and mustache lines. The WAHL was very good doing that!
Summary: Finally Philips created a foil type shaver. This was a very good shaver while I owned it. Even though I had to return it for other reasons, the quality and performance of this shaver was excellent. The rotary shavers Philips Makes have never worked good for Me but this one did.
Good, but a bit too much attempted for one shaver.

Summary: Perhaps the trimmers and shaver are too much for one razor. It is a bit long, tho the handle is ergonomically comfortable. My criticism is that it takes onlyslight pressure on the face to dislodge the shaver screen on one side. It has happened three times.
