Charging problems after 12 months

Cheshire Cat, Amazon
9 June 2012
  • 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. This premium unit initially worked very well but, after about 12 months, I noticed that the shaver was losing charge much more quickly than normal. in addition, the available max charge dropped from 65 mins to 59, then 55, then 49....all in the space of 4 months.

Poor Performer

JESOX5, Amazon

  • 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. The shaver itself does not nor has never given a close shave and it is getting worse.

Terrible shaver - avoid

jjsf, Amazon

  • 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 scissorhands has gone over you.

philips shaver RQ1095

westy, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • 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. Cheaper shaver in the philips range perform much better. A very dissappointed customer.

Overpriced 'trophy' shaver

James Coffey "Telic", Amazon
24 November 2009
  • Summary: I've had many shavers over the years mostly from Philips, and have always had a preference for multi-head shavers over foil shavers like Brauns. Having bought this shaver from Amazon, I have to say that this is the worst Philips shaver I have ever owned. It does not shave closely at all, so I'm not even going to get to the cleaning solution.

Absolutely dreadful

red0209, Amazon
8 October 2009
  • Summary: This is the worst shaver I have ever had, which is surprising considering it is also considerably the most expensive. First problem is that it just doesn't shave properly. You can go over and over your face for 15 minutes and still not look that much more clean shaven than when you started. Most other shavers I have used do a good job in 2 minutes or less.

Philips RQ1095 Arctec Shaver

M. Williams "Scribbler", Amazon
25 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this product after reading reviews about how good it was and watching the Philips video. Well I think its rubbish and a waste of money.Too gimmicky and doesn't shave as well as my old Philips Shaver. As I'm disabled with limited hand movement, I've always used Philips Shavers as I can hold them ok. I expected this new one to give a closer shave but it doesn't; in fact its worse.

Looks cool, poor performance

Mr. S. Wilkinson, Amazon
3 February 2009
  • Summary: This razor looks very cool and is solidly built. It also charges very quickly and is easy to clean. Unfortunately, it's poor from a performance point of view. Coverage is extremely patchy even when a long time has been spent going over an area again and again. It works best if you use it once or more a day.
