Summary: Having brought a number of Philips Shavers I wanted to purchase a new one to replace a 10 year old shaver that sadly had come to the end of it's life. I am so impressed with the AT890/17 AquaTouch. It is a a wet and dry shaver - works great in both ways. Perhaps the best shave I have ever had. Great battery charge - really pleased.
Summary: Got this shaver as a gift for my grandsons 18th birthday He- like a lot of the young guys today is always a problem to buy for. He did moan that he did not have a adapter plug? Can not win can you.got him one. so all is well.Seemed to like it??. personally This is a big improment to my Philips shaver I have had for a mumber of years which is still going strong.
Summary: Have been a Phillishave fan man and boy (50 years),but a year ago I was seduced by the the promise 0f 60 min's shaving per charge from Remmington. The 60 min's shaving was quite accurate but the build quality was poor,the plastic housing for the spring clip on the shaver head just fell apart.
Summary: I bought this form Amazon for £61.50 (It seems to have gone up in price since then). For years I avoided rotary-head shavers because logic would seem to dictate that a foil shaver must give a closer shave. A couple of years ago, I needed a new shaver and bought a Philips SensoTouch (it being the only wet and dry model that they had in the shop).
Summary: As a lifelong wet shaver, and previous electric razor user, I was a bit dubious about some of the claims made for this razor. However, facial irritation caused me to rethink my approach to shaving and I am really delighted that I did so. Admittedly, I have always used the Philips Aquatouch AT890 in wet-shave mode but it gives as good a shave as a traditional blade razor and will give several days shaving without the need to recharge it.
Summary: I purchased this from another seller as the quoted delivery time from Luzern was to slow. I did pay a little more for it however. I have had Philips rotary razors before and have found them acceptable, this one is no different it is quite lightweight but well made and feels comfortable to hold there is a simple charging cord with no irritating base stand so ideal for travel. A travel bag is included as is a cleaning brush.
Excerpt: I've always been a bit cautious about electric shavers feeling they take a long time to give a not particularly good shave. However I was going on holiday and didn't want the palaver of wet shaving. This product was advertised at a very reasonable price. I've been very happy with its performance. I've only used it dry so far, but it has given me good clean shaves in a very reasonable time. It is very comfortable in the hand and easy to clean.
