Excerpt: Philips RQ 1095 Arcitec electric shaver is a companion to me that I cannot imagine shaving without. Before its entry into my house, I was usually never comfortable with the razor shaves and feared cuts and bruises. But with Philips RQ 1095 Arcitec electric shaver I am too comfortable …
Summary: Have had a succesion of Philishaves for the last 25 years so can be considered a loyal buyer. I therefore post this review with some sadness as Philips appears to have had a fundamental issue with this model.
Summary: I bought this shaver on recommendation; unfortunately it has not lived up to expectations. Originally the battery indicator showed 65 minutes available but now it is down to 38, I have always taken care to complete proper discharge/conditioning cycles of the battery but this has not helped.
Summary: Did a lot of research before buying this, and with excellent value from Amazon it was a no-brainer. Excellent shaver. Feels good in the hand, and looks superb. But more importantly it shaves very well - very smooth both during and the result afterwards.
Summary: This is a very dissapointing shaver. I do have a heavy growth, however after Using this shaver for the last two weeks, I have found it to be poor. Believe it or not after having persevered, it's now back in the box and I am using my old shaver.
Summary: I brought this shaver last year and gave it 3-4 months for my skin to get use to it, total waste of time, this shaver misses hairs, the small beard trimmer is pointless - it doesnt cut anything, it takes roughly 20 mins to complete one all over shave and then your left feeling like edward...
Summary: This shaver is supposedley top of the range,it is the worst philips shaver I have ever owned. It is the most expensive but the worst performer of the 7 shavers i have used. It takes longer to shave, longer hairs it just does not like and the trimmer is useless.
Summary: Have used electric shavers for many years and have always bought the cheaper ones thinking that the technology claims were mostly hype. After trying most of the different brands I found that Phillips was the best, giving the closest shave but not as good as a wet shave.
Summary: i had one of these razors when they first came out, then i chose their brand new razor 3d one and did,nt like it one little bit, (delicate heads)so i returned it, and got this razor in its place, now would,nt be without it,110%
Summary: My wife brought me this razor for Christmas and I've waited until now to give a review. I used to use a Philips top draw razor that was about 10 years old, and finish off with a Mach 3. Now I get a shave as good or better than the Mach 3.
