Excerpt: At first I was quite impressed that it could be charged directly rather than relying on disposable batteries, but I quickly discovered that it takes a LONG time to replenish its full power, something like sixteen hours in fact! It does plug into a standard shaver socket, so you may also need to buy an adaptor if you don’t have one of those. Even with these small problems, though, I think it would make a good backup or travel razor.
Summary: I purchased this shaver after reading another review that said it was wonderfully non-irritating. I'm afraid I had the opposite experience. It was highly irritating to my skin. I have been unable to use any rotary razor for this reason and this one followed the pattern. If you also have trouble with rotaries, don't plan on this one being different.
Simply elegant travel shaver delivers a close shave

Summary: Almost as good as a Norelco 3-head shaver. It takes a bit longer to finish shaving since you only have 2/3 the shaving area, but the shave is darned close to a Norelco. I prefer a rechargeable to those models which use 2 AA batteries - who would remember to pack batteries? According to the instructions, the shaver will not run on electric power if the batteries are depleted (unlike the home version of Norelcos).
Nifty little bugger. Not the closest shave, but smooth.

Summary: Ok, to start with I'm not a fan of Remington. So, I was kind of biased to start. But they pleasantly surprised me with this shaver for $30 (that's what I paid for it), decent shave (not the closest, but ok). But the main thing was that I haven't felt a thing while shaving (and I have sensitive skin) DRY!!! That's right. So, one star for being compact, and two stars for the smooth shave it gave me.
Summary: The head falls apart when you take the head off to clean The rotating heads push in when shaving with more pressure The shave is poor , and the blades score the neck on shaving The philips shaver i have is far better but not rechargeable Good point is its rechargable
Summary: This razor has an on/off switch that is easily switched on by pressure in a bag or suitcase. There is no lock on the switch. So on several occasions it has arrived at my destination having run flat. Further, the charge indicator doesn't indicate when it is fully charged. Rubbish.
Summary: GREAT LITTLE SHAVER FOR THOSE TOP UP SHAVES AND FOR DOING AROUND YOUR EARS AND UNDER YOUR NOSE. THE OLDER GENTS WILL KNOW WHAT I MEAN.GREAT FOR TRAVELLING TOO. THE CHARGE LASTS REALLY WELL.I CHARGED MINE AS PER THE MANUAL FOR 24HRS FIRST CHARGE,I AM STILL ON THAT FIRST CHARGE AFTER 6 TO 8 SHAVES AND ITS STILL GOING STRONG. COMES WITH A CHARGER SUPPLIED, YOU JUST NEED A 2 PIN PLUG ADAPTER. ABSOLUTELY SUPER LITTLE THING.
