Rated 3 out of 5 by terryd Not as good as expected
I find myself cleaning of beard "dust" after every shave. The design of the individual heads is (in theory) very clever, but I prefer the single chamber to capture the shave clippings. I have now parked this model up and gone back to the three heads in one. The shave is just as good, if not a tad quicker and I don't have to clean up afterwards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GadgetGuru1 Yet another excellent product from Philips
Had this shaver yesterday and its miles better than my previous competitor brand foil shaver. I have used philips products for years- avent for my kids, sonicares for my wife and myself so thought why not give rotary shavers a go- and what can I say but this is another brilliant product from Philips! I prefer a wet shave so I lathered my face with shaving cream and 3 minutes later had a baby smooth face- no razor burn, perfect on the neck and no irritation whatsoever. The only gripe I had with this product is that corded use wasn't possible as the shaver has to be plugged into the stand and this stand needs to be carried when away on holiday! But thats a small annoyance I can live with given the excellent results! I cant imagine ever going back to using anything else and cant wait to experience what Philips' next gen shavers are going to look like- but judging by this product alone the future definitely looks bright. Well done again Philips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darren102 Best electric shaver I have ever owned
As the summery states it is the best electric shave I have ever had, having owned some fifteen shavers or so this is the second 3D and brilliant, worth paying the little extra, well done Philips

Rated 4 out of 5 by GuyE This product is a good all-round performer
Having had my last Philips shaver for over 15 years, this one is a good replacement for it. The shave is excellent with the 3D head following the contours of the face.
My negatives are that you have to use the stand to charge the shaver - rather than plug in a cable directly - which means travelling light is not an option if you're away for a long time.
Secondly, I would have preferred a separate button to lock the head for travelling rather than activating/deactivating it (after 3 seconds) with the power button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PhillipAtPhilips Excellent shave with very good self cleaning system.
Superb shaver which delivers a close shave every time. The ability to use the jet clean system to automatically clean and charge the shaver at the same time is highly innovative and efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlanADT Best shave I've had, using wet with Nivea cream
Moving up from my trusty HS8420 was a difficult decision, but after many years and a failed battery I needed something. A great deal from a high street retailer and I have the next generation. Been doing this for 37+ years and once again I wish I'd upgraded sooner.
I did try it dry, but mid shave I went back to wet and using my existing supply of Nivea sensitive cream. I did try the Nivea gel in a can, but as this ends up as a foam, which I hate, I went back to the cream. The combination is simply amazing.
As for the jet wash, I'm sure this is needed daily for foam users. However, for me and the Nivea cream once a week is more than enough in the jet wash to get it brand new and dry. Rinsing under hot water is enough each day, leaving the weekend to jet clean and recharge.
Simply an amazing product, once again from Philips...

Very effective, very comfortable, fast and easy to use. Cleaning system is really helpful, even after normal brushing and rinsing.
