Summary: I've had five shavers in my life. The first was Hitachi, the second Braun and the rest Philishaves. I learnt the error of my ways on the third and have been a Philishaver for the past 15 years. I've had the Philips Shaver Series 7000 for the past two weeks, so long enough to tell if it's any good or not. On the whole, I like it. The bad stuff... + It's not better than my previous shaver (Philishave HQ8890).
Excerpt: Overall this shaver is excellent replacement for my previous Philashave , However I wonder why the shaver did not have a built in trimmer for ease of use and for carrying on holiday etc. The charging stand takes getting use to, when trying to put the razor on it to charge it. Getting the blades out to clean them is bit fiddle and secure them back in could be made with a better cover to secure them in place..
Excerpt: I've used Philips electric shavers with gel for about 10 years. Previously nothing but praise. The design of the heads seems to have changed, & I have to constantly go over the same area many times....just a pity you can't try before you buy.
it's a nice sealed design which makes it waterproof

Summary: I decided to give using an electric razor another go, I'd tried a few when I was younger but I always had trouble saving my neck and jaw which resulted in broken skin and patchy shaving, the rest of my face was generally ok. The first thing I noted was that the shaver and the accessories seemed very high quality, especially the shaving unit, it's a nice sealed design which makes it waterproof, and it has a nice weight to it.
I have used 5 different Philips razors and this is the worst in terms of 'shaving'

Summary: I have used Braun and Philips shavers for about 10 years and tend to buy a new model every 2 or 3 years. My last razor was the Philips HS8460 which was excellent and 5 out of 5 so I thought that this being a newer model for a similar price it would be an upgrade. I have been using it for a month now and have decided it is time to cut my losses (no pun intended). Almost every time I have used it I have had to finish the job with my old razor.

Summary: Does the job, charged it once about two months ago and it's still going! Just make sure you clean it regularly if you have a thick beard like mine to avoid a disappointing shave and you'll have no complaints.
