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.

Summary: All in all, it's a good shaver. The fact it can be used wet is a big bonus, as I have terribly sensitive skin so using shaving gels/creams really helps with this. Really good blades, get nice and close, and the trimmer is brilliant if I've left it a little long in between shaves.
Summary: box contained a bag for the shaver. this only with the /20 version not the /17 I checked the box. their was no indication just at890 and AquaTouch Plus. there was a square code (learn more) my phones bar code reader scanning this code took me to Philips site for AT890/16.
Summary: Philips AT890/17 continues the return to form of the AT890, a well made shaver that gives a good close shave wet or dry, quick charging, easy clean and maintenance, comfortable in the hand, and a sensible, simple charging lead that means it all just pops into a washbag when travelling.
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.
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.
Summary: This shaver has very good reviews but I was still skeptical having paid £160 for a Phillips shaver a few years ago and being a bit disappointed, as it struggled with longer hairs especially on the neck.
Summary: I cannot really think of any way this shaver could be much better. It works well both wet and dry. I believe that the last version had a storage pouch with it and I was slightly surprised that this one did not, but as problems go that one is minor.
Summary: I have always been a Philishave person, so when my wife dropped my razor and smashed the head I did not hesitate to buy another. The AT809/17 was chosen because of its wet and dry capability and it is cordless.
