Philips are deteriorating in value and good shaving.

Summary: Not as good as my previous Philips, which was half the price, now discontinued. Bit worried about Philips, they offer spare cutters at up to 75% of the price of the shaver itself, then discontinue the product. They're trying to encourage you to replace your complete shaver every two years.
Excerpt: I have had excellent service from 3 previous Phillips shavers where Nivea cream is dispensed from within the razor rotary cutters. This new one needs me to apply my own pre-shave lotion to my face and is not as protective as the earlier models. My face is quite sore.
Summary: So far I'm very happy with the shaver. It did seem somewhat fragile, but, survived rolling off the sink onto the bathroom floor with no problem. It doesn't have a flat side to put it on, so you need to be aware how you place it on the counter or sink.
Summary: The 2D head is great piece of kit and tons better than the entire fix head Philips shavers I have had in the past Comfortable smooth shave, yes there is the odd bit you go over twice but all shavers do that.
Summary: This is my third Philips shaver. I have previously owned 8020 and AquaTouch AT890 because I prefer wet shave. This RQ1195 is a good shaver but not as good as AquaTouch AT890 which is not only 30-40% cheaper in price but uses same series 7000 blades though shaving head is different and is much better...
Excerpt: No matter what you spend, you can't beat a wet shave. It isn't as close a shave as I hoped and is certainly not a time save compared to wet shave either. But it stops me looking rough and is close enough of a shave for my wife to accept my advances.
Don't know that Philips would recommend this though

Summary: This works very well for me. Bonus is that i can use with the 3D head I had on a previous shaver. Don't know that Philips would recommend this though! Very light and easy to use. Charge lasts around two weeks and the trimmer is good.
