Rated 1 out of 5 by BRISTLES NOT A PATCH ON MY OLD TRUSTY PHILISHAVE 8894
DISAPPOINTING SHAVER IN TERMS OF FUNCTION AND FORM
TOO EASY TO CATCH THE ON OFF SWITCH IN USE BY ACCIDENT
THE ACTUAL SHAVING HEADS DO NOT SEEM TO CUT CLOSE OR CONSISTENTLY
LACKS ENDURANCE ON THE BATTERY AND CHARGE INDICATOR VERY BASIC
I AM OFF TO BUY NEW CUTTERS FOR MY 8894 AND GIVE THE SERIES 5000 TO THE CAT AND DOG HOME CHARITY

Rated 5 out of 5 by smootthface63 Excellent shaver
I have had several Philips shavers over the years and this is by far the best The shaving heads seem to mould around the face to give the smoothest shave I have ever had from an electric shaver. It fits into the hand very comfortably during use and id very quiet in operation. Like other reviewers I wish their was a carry case and cleaning brush supplied, I have just bought a can of cleaning spray so I shall see what that is like for cleaning. Thoroughly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by Upend Effortless shaving with excellent results.
I was initially wary of this shaver because the extended neck seemed rather fragile but I have found that this is not the case and the design has strength and is a clever concept.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark1 Philips series 5000 dry electric shaver
I am very pleased with this shaver. I have a strong beard and it speedily gives me a good close shave, particularly if I use the power boost facility. The shaver head has a lot of directional movement because of its design and it moulds well to the facial contours. It takes about 1 hour to fully charge the shaver and shaving once a day, the charge gives me a week's worth of shaves. Having to wash the shaved hair out of the shaver head with water was new to me as I was used to using a little brush with previous shavers but it is effective. The trimmer also works well, particularly on nasal hairs.
I was expecting there to have been a case to carry and keep the shaver in and the lack of this was a bit of a disappointment, but apart from that I am very pleased with the shaver.

This is the first electric shaver I have ever had, and I have to say I am really impressed with the closeness of the shave. I also suffer quite badly from sensitive skin when shaving, however this left me with less irritated skin than what I would get with an expensive manual shaver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blakey56 As close as a wet shave
Never thought that it was possible but it does shave as close as a wet shave. Got this as a Christmas present and charged it right away. Started using it on Boxing Day and have used it everyday including this morning 21st January and it is still showing 1 bar on the charge scale. Was a bit worried about holding an electrical item under running water but it is the best way to clean the heads and everything is okay. The first few times I used it it didn't shave very close but once I used it a few times it really does do a great job. I have purchased a pouch for it

I have used this shaver now for about a month and found it to be comfortable to use, it also dose what it says on the tin and gives a good close shave.
