If you can afford it there is no need to look elsewhere, buy it!Choosing an electric razor is a nightmare, worse than a car. But a very useful comparison website top rated the Philips range and hunting around the Philips site I settled for the s9111/43. I was attracted by the minimal equipment and high specification. I don't want holders/charging units and obligatory shavng conditioner cartridges. This one is wet or dry and use whatever cream or conditioner you like. What I got was a top quality razor, charging cable, trimmer head, cleansing brush and a hard travel case, so a lot less bulk than on my now out of date Cool Skin. It is a bit heavier, but comfortable to use. The closeness of the shave is outstanding, for me at least, a regular electric shaver. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between this razor and using blades. I have never written a review before but did so now because it appears to be such a good product, although it is early days. Don't throw out the little orange plastic item - you'll need it for cleaning from time to time!

6******I normally like to grow a neat beard or a goaty but in my current profession I need a clean shave 5 days a week which is time consuming and leaves my sensitive skin irritated and extremely painful. In the past 15 years I have used numerous electric shavers but this one beats the lots.
Please note that this product will require a shaver socket in your home, if you don't have one you'll need a Shaver adaptor.
Its super light, looks great and has a very nice grip to it. The blade head is very flexible so when you are shaving around your face it seems to "mould" in perfectly to your face while shaving every hair as close as you can get giving you that really nice smooth feel.
The shaver is waterproof and both on a dry and wet shave results were fantastic; with the wet shave (my preference) it felt very comfortable and "refreshing", so whether your in a rush or have time you can expect great results all the time.
The hidden trimmer was a real bonus, you just slide the button on the side and out it pops, it's neatly placed so it's not awkward to trim.
It comes with a neat little travel pouch, where the shaver fits in nicely and the shaver itself has a lock mode so you don't accidentally set it off while on the move.

Great piece of kit!First impressions of this shaver are Wow! What a futuristic piece of kit!
It is exceptionally sharp looking and the pouch it comes with makes it feel luxurious!
The shave itself is very good. Having used electric shavers now for 9 years this would have to be one of the best that I have used. The fact that it can be used wet allows the user to achieve an even better shave...probably as close to a wet shave as you can get.
As someone who wants to create detail in their beard it does allow good detailing though this is really for those who want a close shave or with the stubble attachment a very even stubble.
I would not hesitate to recommend this to someone as allowed me a great shave with minimal 'drag' that can occur with electric shavers.

An excellent upgradeI recently upgraded my shaver from my old Philips 2D, to this brand new Philips 9000. It's a great looking shaver, I really like the modern design and colour combination.
I liked that the 9000 was ready to use straight out of the box, so I didn't have to wait to use it. I was impressed with this shaver from the very first use, it's more efficient than my old shaver, it's quieter and it glides effortlessly over the skin. I get a much closer shave with this shaver, thanks to the V-Track Precision Blades. I couldn't use my old shaver on my neck as it always left my skin sore and irritated, but I have no problems with this shaver, it doesn't irritate my skin at all, so I'm very pleased about that.
There are a couple of things that I am disappointed about. I wanted to buy the SmartClean system, as this is said to keep the shaver like new, but this isn't available to buy separately, so unless it comes with the shaver you buy, you can't get hold of it. I also miss the stand that my old shaver had for charging and the plastic cover for the head. All in all this is a very impressive shaver that gives a very close shave. I would definitely recommend upgrading from your old shaver.

like the inter-changeabilty of functionsgood design, ergonomic.. cuts well, unless you want a close shave similar to wet razor... could have been more explicit regarding heads that click-on (as I purchased some, which when they arrived, I found would not attach).. explanation not clear enough... cleaning machine good, but the symbols disappear quite quickly, not giving a new user time to fully comprehend (a) what they are, and (b) if they are part of package bought... but overall, the razor works well, handles okay,

A class apart.Hi
I've been using Philishave products now for 54 years and this razor is by far the best ever, I thought the Arcitec was good but compared to this its positively clunky.
My small complaint is the power switch, its probably due to my arthritic fingers but as with the Arcitec I find myself switching it on and off three or four times during a shave. A small price to pay for superb product.

Looks great, but ultimately a disappointing shaveI really wanted to like this shaver - it looks fantastic, can be used as a wet or dry shaver and I loved the versatility (the facial cleansing brush is a nice touch). However, a razor must surely be judged on its ability to deliver a consistent and close shave, and this one just doesn't quite cut it. It might be because I have used wet razors for the last twenty years or so, but this shaver really struggles to get anywhere close to the hairs on my neck and under my chin. Fine on the more defined parts of my face, but not so good on these bits... A real shame, but after nearly three weeks of using it, I'm thinking of dusting off my old wet razor.
