Rated 3 out of 5 by Spinoni Not as good as previous, cheaper Philips shavers!
A touch awkward to hold, this shaver is simply not as good as cheaper and earlier Philips shavers. I would not consider another brand but this model just does not give a close shave despite several sweeps across the same area. The fragile plastic blade cover also broke within a few days of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moley64 It suits my face
I have tried other brands but none as comfortable on my skin as Philips. This razor has replaced my trusty Speed XL and I am delighted with it. Easy to use, comfortable on my skin with good battery life and easy cleaning. Thank you Philips. Good price too

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shaun Excellent dry shave and nice to handle
The package did not contain full operating instructions -I had to wait to download the user guide to discover what "wet shave" entailed. There was still no recommendation for cleaning after the use of shaving gel or other creams. I did not want to clog the cutter mechanism or use a damaging detergent.
I could not provide a review until I had tried the razor for a week or so - you seemed impatient to receive my comments before a suitable testing period. I can now give a qualified approval of this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by crazygolfer Philips SensoTouch wet and dry electric shaver RQ1160/17
Very good wet razor but does not give as good a dry shave as my old HQ8750.
