Rated 3 out of 5 by petrusx Bring back the hard pouch that is also the charger
Previous models came with a hard plastic pouch into which the AC cord plugged into. It worked beautiful - it was both its charge station and its protection when traveling. Please provide an accessory of this type for these specialised precision type shavers that we invest in. You could even be creative these days and let the pouch have a backup battery that will charge the shaver when low. This will mean I can travel extensively without worrying about bringing the AC charger with.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Norm01 Good - BUT
Have used Philips shavers (and others)for many years and always find Philips to be the best. At first, delighted with the series 9000 - best shaver ever ! BUT- blades quickly blunted after less than 6 months, so reverted to older shaver. Now purchased new set of blades for 9000 and back to perfection. My comment is that blades should last approx 2 years, so I was greatly disappointed with premature failure of these so early. I just hope that this was down to a first faulty batch and hope the new set will last somewhat longer - otherwise this could prove to be an expensive mistake !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Very pleased
Great electric save and I'm glad I went for this model with the trimmer as it's an excellent feature.
Very good battery life, easy to clean and use as its well designed.
I had an old design Philips electric saver for about 10 years, this new design is much improved and I'm hoping this new one last as long.
The only thing I can point out is that the new style heads have a larger outer frame so you have to pay more attention to get the correct angle to make sure you get all the hairs under your nose, otherwise it's quite easy to miss some.
So overall its a great saver so get one as you'll not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dickie29 Provides a good clean shave
I tried a Philips shaver very many years ago and found it hopeless. I then tried various German foil shavers. I bought their best shaver about 4 years ago. I never got a clean shave, and recently it began going wrong. I investigated their latest, nearly bought it, but first looked at Which? This recommended Philips shavers; I bought this one, and find it so much better than the German foil shaver. When using a gel beforehand for a wet shave it gives an even closer shave. Highly recommended. The enclosed instructions are just pictures, which are pretty useless. However, one can download a set of proper instructions. I wish Philips would stop issuing so many different models, which even Philips could not tell me all the differences on the telephone. If they wish to produce different models, they should list the differences, rather than just give each variation a new RQ number.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fisherman Very good product
Gives a good close shave when used in the dry shave mode. The only negatives are the speed at which the rinse function is indicated and the sideburn trimmer could be a little wider as some of the older models I have had.
