Generally pleasing performanceAfte nearly 10 months of using the F1 7390 shaver, I am still very pleased compared with previous shavers used. Initially the shaving performance was astoundingly better. Shaving time reducced considerably. This has since deteriorated, but is still better than previous shavers. The battery gives a good 8-9 days of shaving before needing a recharge.
A few little nigggles that prevent it being "perfect". Washing the heads daily after use is very dependent on the temperature of the hot water, and requires a considerable amount of water to go down the drain to get the heads clean. Maybe as a result of this I find that I have to brush the heads out thoroughly every 2 months rather than the 6 months suggested in the instruction manual.
The hinge of the shaving heads is fixed to the body of the shaver by a spring loaded ball. This can easily "pop off" the shaver when shaking dry after washing, unless held securely by hand, or if it is accidently knocked quite lightly.
It is a shame too that the shaver is not provided with a case. I am using the case from my previous Philips shaver, which is o.k. but is a tight fit for shaver and charging cord.
All in all though I am still pleased with the shaver itself.
