Summary: After researching wet and dry shavers I settled on the Phillips because of its versatility, the reputation of the manufacturer and price. I enjoyed a month of really close shaves and found the Aquatouch easy to clean. Battery life was good too - around two weeks between shaves.
Summary: I have been shaving for about sixty years, even when I had a beard I trimmed round the edges. I have had Remmington, Ronson, Braun and Phillishave shavers as well as toying with disposable razor wet shaving and even a cut-throat! This AT890 is the best yet, by a long way.
feels solid but doesn't shave as closely as my older (and very fragile) Philips razors.

Summary: This purchase was to replace a pair of earlier Philips razors, neither of which survived beyond 2 years. While they were much more fragile they gave a much better cut than the Aquatouch. Ah well, I guess you can't get reliability and quality in this world!
Summary: The trimmer (on the back of shaver) on this overrated device, is as near to useless at cutting as using a wet sausage. I also go along with how poor it is at cutting deep around the neck area, takes a very long time. Used for 6 months, roll on next xmas for replacement.
Summary: Bought this for my husband last April. Shave quality good but not quite as good as previous Philips razor. He was pleased with it until today when it just won't switch on. According to reviews on the WHICH? website this is a common problem.
Summary: I have always used electric shavers because of rash issues. Up to now I have only used foil type shavers, mainly Braun. I had tried Philips in the past, but found them less effective than foil when using as a dry shaver.
Summary: This is top quality , good value for money and brilliant shave . I had a Phillips before this that was poor ,but gave this a go , from the comments made in previous reviews , and it comes up to a high standard . Nice to hold , light , and a good quick shave , lovely
Summary: Electric shavers are totally personal things so any review must be read on this basis. For example, I have decided (at last) that my beard is best suited to a rotary shaver like the Aqua Touch Plus. A couple of years ago I bought through Amazon, a Panasonic non-rotary.
Excerpt: I have a skin disorder which causes my to bleed very easily and although an avid wet shaver all my adult life - you cant get a good close electric shave can you? - I was fed up of nicking myself which we all do from time to time.
