Summary: I only bought this model because the replacement foil and blades for my quite old Braun shaver were out of stock and after a couple of weeks I started to look at other possibilities. This shaver cost just over £40 and the Braun bits were just over £20. I was a bit suspicious about the shave quality of the Phillips system but after having used it for just over a month I am pleased to say it is very good indeed.
Summary: Having used Foil (Braun) shavers for years I fancied a change. I have a habit of not shaving over the weekend and, having dark strong stubble, had a major (often painful) chore on a Monday morning. The idea of a choice of wet shaving therefore added to the attraction. Firstly the shaver is great quality and is incredibly smooth and quiet compared to what I'd had previously. You hardly feel anything as you shave.
Summary: This is undoubtedly the best electric razor I have owned. To be able to use it in the shower is a real pleasure and gives an extremely close shave. In addition, the battery life between charges is the best of any electric razor I have ever used in 55 years of electric shaving. I can only recommend it in the highest possible terms.
Summary: I bought this about 2 weeks ago and I'm very pleased. I have never used one of these before and bought it to take a break from shaving which was irritating my skin. I'm not sure about the 3 minute thing. It takes me a bit longer to get a smooth shave and I have had to play around with different techniques until I found the right one. It works much better as a wet shaver and stays charged for ages.
Perfect!!!!!!! I wont be going back to wet shaving with a Razor

Excerpt: Wow this shaver is amazing!!!!! I have always shaved with a razor and thought this was the best way to shave (closer) since I started shaving and I and 32 years old now. I really don't think i'll be going back.
Summary: This shaver replaced a previous model which eventually died. While I waiting for it to come I had to use a Braun that I had bought some time back and now know why I hated it so much. The Aquatouch is well made and is a dream to shave with. It offers a smooth and quiet shave. I don't use it wet as I get a really close shave using it dry. Basically, I can't be bothered with all that foam stuff, since it works well enough without it.
Summary: Frankly speaking, I bought this instead of buying new blades for my last Philips as it took ages to have a shave as they were basically blunt! Despite the fact my old shaver still worked, the cost of new blades was prohibitive and I figured as soon as I bought new blades it would pack up anyway, so a new razor seemed most sensible - a throw away society I suppose. I like this type of shaver and the fact that, as with my last one, you can wash the heads out with water.
