      Good . . . For an electric shaver

      As long as you're willing to accept that an electric shaver is never quite going to shave as close and thoroughly as a traditional blade, this is a pretty good razor. The battery lasts quite a while on each charge, and it is often very convenient to shave in the shower, with shaving cream and all. I usually had to do a tiny bit of touch up with a traditional blade every time I got out of the shower though. Also, if I hadn't shaved in a few days, there was no way the electric razor was going to work without it hurting more than I could tolerate. Of course, these are all things I think you just have to expect and accept with any electric razor. Final gripe: if you drop it in the shower, it's done: the hinge on the head assembly will bust, and there is no replacement part for it (only the actual blade inserts are replaceable). After having to replace two of these razors, I finally gave up on electric razors.

      I've been wanting to try electric for a while simply because shaving is a chore! The razor itself is well made and comfortable. Disassembly and cleaning of the shave head is a bit fiddly but no big hassle. The trimmer head is absolutely worthless. It couldn't give me a nice edge even if I threatened it. Time to break out a manual razor. Battery life is fine, quieter than I expected (sonicare is noisier). Shaving both dry and wet is nice but unsurprisingly wet with lather is better. I never get quite the cleanliness of a manual razor but I have less of a problem shaving more frequently so it seems a fair trade off (hair stays shorter more consistently). I haven't got any nicks from shaving which is great, a couple of minor shaving burns but nothing more. Overall good, but not great. Curious to know what the value curve looks like (cost/performance) on the more expensive ones. Maybe we'll see.

      A Great Close Shave with Minimum Effort

      I purchased the Norelco 5100 to replace an older 7310 Norelco shaver that needed the blades replaced. I normally purchased the lower end models thinking that there really couldn't be that much of a difference in performance. Boy was I wrong. The first thing I noticed is how much better the Norelco 5100 fits in your hand as well as how light it is compared to previous models. It is also much quieter than other models I have used. And finally it really does give a great close shave with a minimum amount of effort. The only thing I don't like is that you have to lift off the head to put the trimmer on. It's not that it is hard to do but it seems to me that eventually the piece that the shaver head and trimmer fit into to could eventually wear out. That's the reason I only gave it 4 stars.

      Nearly Perfect

      I've been a daily shaver for over ten years. I only recently treated myself to an electric razor to see if it would suit me. I started small with a wired, stationary-head model. Once I decided I liked it, I invested in this razor as a daily shaver (the starter model was a pharmacy purchase - not bad but not great). It works great, I only need to charge it a couple times a month, and I can use it with cream and in the shower. It cleans well, shaves well, and is ergonomically great. If the blades were a tiny bit quicker to raze on the first pass, it would be a perfect ten (although I'm not sure ANY razor can accomplish that). It's a steal for the price.

      Another Weak Norelco/Phillips Shaver

      What happened to Norelco? I had one that gave me a decade of good, close, even shaves. I bought a newer version a few years ago and it didn't shave very well at all. Fast forward a few more years and several hundred cartridge refills, I decide to give them another try with this one. It's also terrible. After you charge it and turn it on the first time you can feel how weak it is. It barely buzzes in your hand. I honestly thought it didn't take the charge. Definitely steer clear of this one.

      Nice shave, but not really better than old shaver.

      While I like the swivel head on the new Phillips Norelco shaver, I really don't see a difference between my older, less expensive Phillips Norelco shaver. In addition, to use the trimmer, one has to take off the shaving head, and put the trimmer in its place. This is time consuming, especially since the pieces don't always fit easily. Bottom-line buy the less expensive Phillips Norelco shaver, without the swivel head.

      I've had a Norelco triple head shaver for many years - with one replaced head. It was time to renew my shaver with an updated Norelco. It's so quiet I can shave at midnight and not disturb the wife. And, it cleans so easily. The only bad thing is: once the battery is exhausted, the shave shuts of immediately - no warning. So, after a few days of shaving, I do a recharge - if it needs it or not. Good price too.

      Good comfortable razor

      The razor is OK. It is comfortable to use and seems to cut well, however, I think it is too expensive for what you get. My old Norelco which was about half the cost cuts just as well and has a convenient pop-up trimmer (this is a drawback to the new razor - you have to remove the cutting head and put on the trimmer which is very inconvenient). I would not buy this razor again.
