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.
Summary: I've had this shaver now for about a half a year. I don't know why I didn't think to check for the satisfaction guarantee before it was too late. This thing is such a struggle to use. It struggles to get rid of even the most simple stubble and slightly longer hairs. You can pat and press and push and nudge and move and mash the thing around in your face, but you won't achieve a close shave until your skin is red, tired and sore.
Summary: I bought this shaver a few months back, read all the instructions but could get no where near a clean shave. Instead i managed a dodgy shave which i had to revert back to the razor blade to finish.I am checking the return policy.
Summary: Previously had Philps for over 10 years so went with Philips again and so far not dissapointed. Product lighter than previous model but does a very good job. Used every day, holds a good charge. Would recommend.
Summary: After using the razor successfully for several months with no problems,I opened it up to wash out the surplus shave gel,under the tap.Imagine my surprise when the interior parts fell out into the sink.Try as I may (several times)I am unable to get them to fit correctly in order to get the shaver to function as before.Result--a useless piece of kit.Needless to say I am back to wet razor shaving.Gillette Mach3 3-Phillips Aquatouch 0!
Summary: I bought this for my husband who likes to wet shave but generally finds plain old razor blades to harsh on his skin. He likes the ease of using it in the shower or not, and with or without the foam. His only gripe is that it can get a bit messy with water and shaving foam everywhere, and it took a while to get used to.
Summary: I really don't understand the Which Best Buy on this item. I have used this shaver for over a month both wet and dry and find that compared to my previous Braun Syncron it is slow and difficult to get a thorough close shave, battery life between charges is reasonable but not good, the trimmer performs poorly. The shaver feels ratther flimsy and unlikely to last much beyond the 2 year warranty, and the cost of replacement heads is ridiculous anyway.
Summary: After 3 weeks daily use the shaver has not run out of power from its first charging. It works well dry or with shave foam or gel and results are good. Cleaning needs only a rinse under the tap but the shaving head and trimmer need to be left open to dry effectively. All in all an excellent replacement for my traditional wet shave.
