Looks good but functionally no better than older models

Summary: I have been using this shaver for almost a month now. It is aesthetic. However compared to my older philips model HQ7870 it shaves no better. In fact I could see some hairs spilling out of the space beneath the shaver blades. I agree with some reviewers that its advertisement has been hyped. The trimmer is pathetic and does not work.I rang the philips customer service and they were good in giving me the address of a dealer who could repair it.
Summary: The RQ1095 is a really nice shaver. it gives a really close shave and is well designed and comfotable to use. However, it is far from perfect in my opinion, i.e. 1. The Jet Clean System is a bit of a gimmick and is not really needed when all that is wanted is a quick rinse under the tap. The shaver is actually quite easy to clean anyway. 2. The trimmer is practitcally useless. It simply does not do a very good job at trimming.
Summary: This Arcitec series of razors has been over-hyped in line with their general performance. For Phillips to boast that this razor gives the best ever electric shave is a gross over statement as it appears to do nothing more than other cheaper products offered by the same manufacturer. Its general build quality cannot be denied and the razor is, without doubt, aesthetically pleasing.
Summary: Die ersten Tage rasierte das Gerät meine Haut mit, speziell am Hals ist das Rasurergebnis gleich null. Brauche doppelt so lange wie mit meinem Braun 795 cc. Die Optik ist super, die Ladestation auch, verbraucht wenig Reinigungsflüssigkeit, aber zum eigentlichen Gebrauch, dem Rasieren, ist das Gerät leider nicht zu empfehlen. Wird leider bei Ebay landen.
