Rated 3 out of 5 by les43 good shaver
This shaver gives a smooth close shave, much better than my previous philips shaver.
However one notable exception is the lack of the shavers ability to display the state of battery charge, my old shaver did this with a bar system, and I assumed that this much later model would have done this.
It is helpful to know have much shaving time is available, and I think this is a very bad omission.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Artoro Gives a first class shave
Purchased to replace my old Philips razor which had lost its cutting edge after years of use, I sore this for sale at a good price on Amazon and I now appreciate the advances made over the years since I bought my last razor.
The 7000 series gives a much closer shave than before.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Menifo Very poor hardware
I bought this nearly 3 years ago. Six months after I bought it the LED battery indicators (for which I had paid dearly) begun to die one after the other. A year later only the bottom LED was working to this day.
I am now nearly 52, and since the age of 14 I've been using Philips shavers. I've never used any other shaver nor razor. All of the previous models lasted for an average period of 7 to 8 years. In fact, my first ever which I've kept, is still working. I was replacing the old ones because I wanted a change. My previous one I had to replace after owning for nearly 8 years because the switch button was damaged.
The RQ1195 is giving me the best shave ever. But in terms of hardware it is by far the worse. Apart from the LEDs, the switch button is beginning to crack, there's wear on the body of the shaver as it is of a very poor quality, heads are a bit tricky to assemble and on top of that it won't charge now. I suspect that it may be the cable plug.
Less than 3 years later, I am now considering to buy a new one... even though I feel that it hasn't paid off like my previous shavers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JonA Great battery - poor shaver
I have had many shavers over the years, and previous Philips rotary shavers have been good. I needed a new shaver because the rechargeable batteries always eventually die. A saw this one on Amazon for a good price, and as it seemed a new design, I had high hopes. I bought it for myself for Christmas!
The battery lasts for ages, very pleased with that. The clipper attachment is also awesome. The problem is that it does not shave as well as the old design. In difficult to reach places (ie under the nose) it basically does not work - and yes I have tried up, down, sideways and round-and-round. I reverted to cutting individual bristles with nail clippers!!
I have abandoned the struggle (and Philips) and bought a foil shaver. It works very well. Sorry, but there it is.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bigandbald Shaver 7000 Series
Initially very happy with 7000 series wet and dry shaver
however things have turned sour - firstly the cleaning system
works fine, however extremely expensive to refill, you can save loads of money by washing under the tap!
11 months into ownership and the sealed power button has started to crack, this means I'm no longer able to use in the shower. contacted Philips customer services, I was told this didn't matter as the shaver is only water resistant - I then had to explain it was actually a wet and dry shaver, eventually the repair was authorised under warranty - however it took three phone calls to get my email address correct allowing for repair instructions to be sent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by akfxxx Far better than my last Phillips
I have always bought phillips shavers and been happy except mu last model so i purchased this one to see if any better. Yes its n more powerful but gentle on skin. Great shape easy to use. I have arthritis in my hands and its great no problem. Downside The case that comes with it the zip broke within 3 weeks of daily usage, and no little cleaning brush provided. But i can live without them the shaver does the Job first time every time. Thank You Phillips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Danjb68 I have used Phillishaves for over 25 years and this is the best!
A great shaver that is easy to use, easy to clean and keeps a long charge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dooman So far so good
Have enjoyed the fact this shaver has not managed to tear my face like others.
Seems slightly under powered.
Take a bit longer to shave but overall a good result!
Trimmer isn't very good.
