Philips Shaver S9000 Prestige Wet and dry electric shaver, Series 9000 SP9863/14 Our best closeness and comfort is rated
Rated 5 out of
Real Prestige product
I have this shaver from one and half months and would like to say that this product is a good example how name can match the quality.
In my 40+ years of shaving experience I have used various types of shavers, including three other electric devices. Prestige S9000 is the first one which in final result of shaving really matches the best types of classic blade shavers.
Shaving is really very close, actually in most cases I cannot find a difference with blade shaving. Even when I have found some small differences I suspect I have not been precise enough with shaving because now I do it in parallel with some other morning tasks, as browsing the news on laptop or TV, or boiling my tea. I haven’t tried with S9000 wet shaving, but for me dry one is good enough. Skin irritation is almost completely missing, to the level that couple of times I forgot to apply aftershave gel on the end!
From engineer’s point of view I am impressed by the battery capacity. One shaving discharges it by about 5% only, so the device can be charged ones in two weeks. This is a very good parameter, as the battery charging pad is quite large and will not be convenient to take in short business trips or weekend holiday trips. Numerical indication of remaining capacity is very useful to avoid surprises of this type.
Moving to wireless charging is in my opinion very smart idea of Philips engineers. It would be great if in the near future other Philips personal health and care device are unified in that way, what will greatly reduce the mess of various charges and specific cables for each device.
In general – I would suggest this shaver to everybody who would like to have an electric shaver which shaves as close as blade shaver, keeping comfort of dry shaving.
