As good as a wet shave razorI did my research and felt that this was best electric shaver for my introduction to quality electric shavers. I had tried cheaper shavers in the past but they were rough in cutting, and the task was laborious.
The series 5000 was a revelation. It was quiet and light which made me apprehensive. But as soon as I started I was overwhelmed how quick, easy, and close the shave was (as good as a traditional wet shave!).
I did not buy the cleaning station as I was not sure that I would be happy with the product, so I hope that just flipping the blade casing and rinsing is suffice. Needless to say that if a cleaning station would be required, that I would happily purchase one.

Good replacementBought as a replacement for a Phillips that I had owned for several years but unfortunately ‘died’ on me. Have been using it for around a month now. Purchased at Boots on offer. Pleased with quality and performance and soon got used to the ergonomics.
Added value was the extra years Guarentee if you register on line, making it a free three year Guarentee, which I think is good for such a product these days.
Have not used the sideburn cutter, but it seems straightforward enough. If it performs as well, and lasts as long, as my previous Phillips I will be happy.

The best Shaver I've ever hadI've been a philishaver user since my Mum and Dad gave me one for my 21st Birthday; I'm now 83! I've owned several, many?, down the years bur this is by far and away the best. I've always been a bit dubious about washing the thing under the tap but this so easy and effective. I bought the Smart Clean system too but I don't think I'll bother.
Excellent in every way.

A quick, quiet & close shaveI've been using this shaver for several weeks now, it has definitely decreased my average shaving time, the 3 rotary blades cover a larger surface area and shave much quicker than my previous foil shaver with just as much precision. The included trimmer is also very useful for keeping a short beard/stubble look. The shaver charges incredibly quickly, and you can get a full shave out of a few minutes charge if it's low on battery and you're in a hurry.
I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet the shaver is upon my first use, my previous shaver was significantly louder and produced an unsavory buzz that was highly irritating (especially in the morning...). This shaver isn't noiseless, but it's quieter than any others I've used.
The shaver is quite easy to empty/clean, there is a button that flips open the head and allows you to empty it and rinse/brush the blades. However It does flip open with quite some force so you have to be cautious not to accidentally open it anywhere other than the sink or bin, as hair could go flying everywhere.
The overall design of the shaver is very nice and sleek. The build quality feels sturdy, and it's nice to hold in your hand.

Good but!!!!!Bought a lower model than this where heads don't move in so many directions and use it when I am in a hurry and can't be bothered to have a wet shave. I use it with a pre-electric shave lotion. Bought this current model for travel purposes and whilst it works very well with pre-electric shave lotion I don't go a lot on the actual wet shave ie shaving gel etc. Not a big problem as far as I am concerned but might not suit someone expecting to do away with a proper wet shave/ blade altogether. Just my opinion but after using mainly a proper wet razor for 60 years I certainly still find a proper wet shave unbeatable and longer lasting.

Could be better......I have been using this shaver for a few months now but unfortunately it will not replace my wet shave.
I use it therefore for holidays and top up shaves!!
It is also is better used "wet" with soap & water and on Turbo as the normal setting doesn't work as well.
Finally, the on/off button and turbo button could be better situated as I keep switching it off while shaving!!
However, I will keep on using the shaver as I do like it for top ups before going out in the evening or going away for a few days.

Not a close shaveI received the product as a xmas present. I have now used the product twice and both times had poor results. I have made sure the product is fully charged and on turbo mode. I also try to use circular motions as instructed yet I need to go over the same area 10 plus times and I and still able to feel the stuble. Also it is impossible to shave closely under the nose due to poor design. I am hoping to be able tonge t a refund if my parents have kept the receipt.

Really DisappointedThis is my third Philips in recent years and before this I have been pleased. The shave is not as close as it’s predessesor series 1000 which when compared shaves closer. The one off switch is often pressed by mistake due to its location and the separate trimmer is inconvenient. It also doesn’t cut easily under the nose area. If I could take it back I would and am not inclined to recommend
