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. Thirteen and a half months is too short a life for what is supposed to be a good quality product when it has been looked after in accordance with the instructions.
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. When my old Braun shaver battery started to fail, I saw this product, read the reviews, in particular when used wet, and decided to go for it. Fantastic, I use Nivea shaving gel for my wet shave and the comfort and speed of the shave is really good.
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 .
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. I read all the reviews, considered the price and bought. The shaver turned out a real disappointment.
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. Time to try again I thought although I was of the opinion that you don't get the same quality shave with an electric shaver.
Summary: This is the second shaver of this type that I have bought. I have been buying Philips shavers for years and I am very pleased with them. After a while, the heads need to be replaced and it is usually cheaper to buy a new razor than get replacement heads. When the first shaver of this type failed after quite a short period, I thought the problem was due to water.
Summary: I have used this shaver for nearly a year now and have to say that whilst initially it was very good, the performance is starting to decline, no doubt due to the rotary blades becoming blunt. This has always been a problem with Phillips shavers and I just wish they'd use better quality steel to last longer, rather than having to fork out a fortune on replacements every year. The shaver is lightweight but unfortunately in a cheap tacky way that matches the case.
