Rated 4 out of 5 by Alake23 Versatile and very functional
As somebody who is susceptible to rashes from wet shaving, I have been very surprised to find that there is an electrical shaver that gets such a close shave. The heads fit very sturdily and the beard styler is great for maintaining a modern look. I would recommend this product to others and am very happy with the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IvyLeague1962 Very good electric razor
This product was given to me free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
I was interested to try this razor, as over the years I have tried many, always reverting back to a traditional 'wet' shave as in my experience, no electric razor matches the close shave of a blade.
I used the product dry, wet with gel, and in the shower (without gel).
To be honest, I found no difference in the quality of shave with any of these options. But, overall, the quality was very good with all three.
It still doesn't deliver the close shave of a wet blade (nor does it claim to), but I am very happy with the overall quality.
I have not experienced the 'shaving rash' that I was expecting with a new electric razor, which is something I have suffered with in the past.
I very much liked the fast charging time and the option to rinse out the blades after each use.
Overall, I was very pleased to be able to test this product. I like it very much and will continue to use it in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Callum This is a very compfortable shave
The product is a compfortable one which is well designed.
It does cut the hair well and doesnt hurt or isnt uncompfortable and is manuverable around the face.
It does struggle to shave all the hair as it leaves a small amount of stubble which I have found that you would need to go over with a razor to remove the bits of hair left.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MP1K Very Good Product. Not for Precision Shaving
The shaver is light. Easy to use and intuitive to pick up and shave. I needed a plug adaptor to allow me to charge the shaver. There is an LED display to let you know when the shaver is ready. The blades go over the contours of your skin with ease. It took a bit of time to adjust to using a shave like this. I usually wet shave. I found certain clusters of hair on my neck required a rotation of the shaver to trim down. You can use with or without shaving cream. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin will determine whether you use shaving cream. I used both and i prefer no cream as it doesnt require you to clean up afterwards. It cut my hairs down very short. Not quite as close as a wet shave but suing everyday will give you the clean shaven look.
One thing to mention is this shaver should not be used by people who have tramlines or goatees as there is a risk of cutting bits off of that. I have a goatee and tramlines and by mistake i shaved part of my tramline off of my neckline meaning i had to shave it off and start again.
I would recommend this shaver to people who shave their whole face. Not to people who style a beard or facial hair

Rated 4 out of 5 by Keith99 Great product - ideal for travel
I received this product free as part of Philips testing programme. The product is very nicely designed, comes with a neat travel case and a trimmer attachment. One charge worked all week for me shaving once per day in the shower. The LCD "tap" display shows up when you turn it on/off under the running water, clever though this is I couldn't understand why as a user I needed to know the shaver was wet. The unit is very light and I feel it would be perceived as higher quality if it was heavier, also the motor speed sounded a little slow to me. Having said that it gave me a good shave each day so these criticisms are about perception of quality rather than performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happyguy5678 Better than expected.
Having had a philips before this i was a little disappointed with the battery life, however this is smaller in the hand but performs slightly better than my old one (sharper blades possibly.) Lasts more than long enough to have a full shave once or sometimes twice, where as my old one could last to have 2 or 3 full shaves a week before charging. Overall though, a great product that doe's it all!
