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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CC123 Outstanding Performance
I have have a Philips Shaver for many years and are quite used to having two weeks of shaves before needing to recharge, but the RQ1195 is far exceeding that.
I find having to swap heads in order to trim my side burns a slight inconvenience, but it is exceeded by the superior shaving experience.
Very glad to have chosen to stay with Philips.

Rated 1 out of 5 by vikrantg Not satisfy al all. always review before buy
I am very disappointed with this product. I have a shaver of different manufacturer since 2 year and was using 5 times/week was very satisfy. thought of changing the blades as it was taking time to shave. I met with a promoter who convinced me to buy this expensive Philip 7000 shaver due to my sensitive skin. BUT I feel fooled and regret my self buying this. it takes longer than my 2 years old shaver and very irritating to my skin. I have to cry my self after shave. I don't know if I can return this and get my money back. I want someone to assist me to advise how to go with this. Now I need to spend the money to buy blades for my old shaver which is very useful and value for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Higher quality shave
After moving up from the Aqua care range, this definitely is in the Rolls Royce class. A powerful soothe shave with decent ease of use. the only minor disappointment, is the difficulty in shaving my top lip right up to my nose.
This takes somewhat different method, to get a clean shave
