Summary: This is my first electric shaver and using with cream(wet) only. Pros: just 1hr charge lasts a week, easy to clean, comfortable to hold, light weight, trimmer is useful. Cons: battery can't be replaced. various users have indicated battery life of 3-4years so consider the cost(£45) for 2years then will buy a new one, starts to get heated after 3-4 minutes.§§§ Shaving is 80% as close as my blade(mach3) and it is enough for me as I shave almost everyday.
Summary: I've been using a wet&dry foil shaver for almost 20 years, but have been dissatisfied with the way they leave longer hairs and also the battery life has been poor after a year or so (Panasonic). So I thought I'd try this one. I've had it for 3 months now and it's excellent. Only needs charging every 3 weeks, good close shave, doesn't leave long hairs and is fairly quick (despite the apparent slow speed of the motor).
An efficient product which gets rid of those hard to remove neck hairs

Excerpt: I bought this product to use when travelling. It can be used wet or dry, although I have used it only as a dry shaver, but you can clean by rinsing under the tap. One full charge lasts a long time, and the shaver does not slow down gradually - it works well until discharge.
Summary: At last a shaver that can be used wet , dry or just about anyway you want!! and with shaving soap or gel/foam there is NO friction and ends with a clean comfortable shave that really does feel a cut above others..A Must Buy 3 of my family have now bought one after seeing mine and seeing the results!
Summary: it was very useful product...i could trim and i could shave it easily wen ever i want.even if im in a hurry to reach my work..it takes only 2 min to finish the job..instead of applying cream and shaving it i could finish it off in minutes..very useful product for every men...and phillips dey got some wonderful varities of trimmers...
Summary: I have bought this as a gift for my brother! It is pretty good Shaver! It is the option of wet shave which it is a bonus! In term of softness, the result will not be as soft as traditional shavers but I guess this is as close as you get with an electric shaver! My brother is happy and the price was very reasonable too (that made it a perfect gift).
Summary: I am too impatient to use a blade shave regularly and never achieve a blade shave without drawing blood. I believe this model shaves as good as an electric shaver can although so far I have not used it wet which might be even better. Great battery life, no hassle of external charger units, quiet ,smooth shave to all areas and ergonomic design. Other reasons for choice were my expierence of other philips grooming products and John Lewis pricing and service.
