Amazing shave, questionable quality

Mazgazine, Walmart
9 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I've had a RQ1250 (same version as in the site, just different display) for two years and up until yesterday it was an amazing shave.. Now its giving a "clean head, ! , replace head" error that apparently is impossible to fix.. So just beyond the warranty the most expensive shaving device I have ever received died. The "clear the message by holding the button for 10 seconds" is the only thing you can do, and if it doesn't clear the message, consider it dead.

good shaving performance but failure highlights poor Philps support

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 January 2011
  • Summary: Used the razor Philips RQ1280 SensoTouch GyroFlex 3D Rechargeable Rotary Shaver with great satisfaction for 1 month without recharging (wanted to judge ability to travel without taking charger). On first recharge, the razor went dead. Tried to access the "personalised support" promised for registering on Philips' website, a registration which had taken some time because of its "clunky" performance: no luck.

it looks better than it shaves

30 November 2010
  • Summary: I am using Philishavers for quite a few years and also Braun ones before them. I must admit that this model is hardly a breakthrough. Precision shaving is very difficult, since the heads are surrounded by a rather thick buffer of plastic, in such a way that you cannot be sure which exact spot on your face you shave. The trimmer makes a rather annoying sound when cutting hairs.

Good shave, very poor travel design

M. Canton, Amazon
22 November 2010
  • Summary: The shave is excellent or as good as any other Philishave I've had. But on this and some previous similar models, the design team at Philips seem pretty amateurish. It should be all too obvious that a good shaver must be designed to travel. This shaver is certainly not. Where is the charging socket on the bottom of the shaver that would allow an external charger to be plugged in?

Expensive but as good as a cheap electric razor!

Tea Tango, Amazon
6 September 2010
  • Summary: I brought this razor as it was supposed to be the best one out there. However after trying it for nearly two weeks, im going to return my to my mach 5 tubro or whatever its called. The razor feels good to hold, and has a nice rubber coating at the back with a nice display at the front, telling you how long you have left before you need to recharge and if the device needs cleaning and if its locked ( to stop it from turning on in your bag when at airports i guess).

en panne - SAV AMAZON au top

Mécontent, Amazon
12 November 2011
  • Summary: Produit acheté en septembre 2011, en mars 2012 déjà en panne... que dire de plus... très mécontent surtout au prix du rasoir. Toutefois, SAV Amazon tip top. Echange en 1 jour. Sans cela, je disais bye bye philips. J'espère que son remplaçant va durer bien bien plus longtemps...

No cumplió mis expectativas

Arlequín, philips-tienda.es

  • Pros: cumple función afeitado
  • Cons: mala relación calidad-precio

Schick und teuer - mit sehr schlechter Rasierleistung.

ralsch2, eBay.de
29 October 2011
  • Summary: Meine Motivation für den Kauf: Auch mal zwischendurch, z.B. am Wochenende wenn ich keine Lust auf eine Nassrasur habe, mal schnell trocken drüber gehen zu können. Design, Haptik: Das Gerät hat eher die Anmutung eines Elektronikproduktes (Handy, bzw. Smartphone), und glänzt und glitzert, mit dezenter Chromleiste. Dazu die Anzeige die erst bei Aktivierung im hochglänzend schwarzen Display erscheint - sehr schick.
