    The Cheapest Norelco

    A luggage mishap left my beloved Philips-Norelco shaver in Colorado, and I bought this one hoping that my other would turn up eventually. It didn't, so now I use this one every day. Even though basically all of the Norelco shavers look exactly alike, this one is of noticeably cheaper construction. The motor sound is a little louder and the foils and blades are rougher. This is my third Philips in the past decade or so, and I make sure to clean it regularly. That said, I have to shave more slowly than I did with my previous one as it's given me a couple of ingrown hair type situations when I've rushed over my face. Pros - it uses the same charger plug as my last two Norelco shavers and the trimmer that my wife has. Battery life is excellent, I use it every day and charge it maybe every other week to two weeks. Cons - rough shave, pulls hair if you miss a day. Not worth the price. In 2015 i spent $70 on a middle-tier Norelco and it was a great shaver. In 2017, the $40 I spent on this one would have been better if it went toward a slightly nicer shaver. Do your face a favor and don't pinch pennies on this purchase.

    Battery died in a few days+design flaws

    I got this to take on a trip to replace on older Philips shaver. Within a couple of days the battery would not charge. Probably infant mortality, but there are other serious nuisances: 1) my old razor works when plugged in (if the battery is low) - this one DOES NOT. If your battery dies or is low (as mine did) you are up the creek 2) I got another similar unit (different model number) to replace this one, and discovered that its wall wart produces a different voltage. If you had two of these, you could easily plug in the wrong charger. 3) my old razor has an easily removable head, for knocking out the whisker shards. This one just flips open and waves around - the head is removable, but I'm skeptical about the longevity of the clasp that holds the head in place 4) the ON/OFF switch is an awkwardly placed push button - in the old razor, it's a reassuring slide switch 5) holding it just seems awkward compared to the older model. I am sending it back to Philips. It can't compete with their older model!

    This electric razor is light in weight and is relatively quiet when used, but provides a good thorough shave. My face feels very smooth after using this product. Razor doesn’t come with a cleaning brush, but I already have one of my own. I found the product was easy to clean. Also, has a long battery life of 35 hours. Would recommend this product to anyone! Philips stands for high quality.

    Worst Norelco I have ever owned.

    My last 6 shavers were Norelco and I was very satisfied with them. I expected this shaver to be as good as or better than my previous Norleco shavers, but after using it for weeks (it was pulling out whiskers not cutting them) I tried to return it to Best Buy and they refused to take it back and give me a refund. I even tried to get them to to give me a credit towards a different model. Best Buy must have changed their return policies. I have always recommended Best Buy, but after this concern, I will do all my business with Amazon. I purchased another Norelco from from Amazon and I am satisfied with it, but not with Best Buy

    This electric razor offers a great value. It is an entry level cordless razor that is inexpensive, easy to use, smooth on the the face and has a long battery life. Read the instructions and you will be happy with this purchase. It recommends a full 24hr charge before the first initial use. It has a charge light indicator. The razor cleans easy as its waterproof. Open the top hinge, empty the facial hair clippings and run the heads under hot water. It's a great value.

    Typical Great Norelco Shaver At Good Price

    This is the 2017 "wet" version of the Norelco 2100 shaver that allows wetting your face for shaving and both the head and hair recepticle can be cleaned under running water. It does NOT allow shaving with the power cord when the battery needs charging. Most guys who use Norelco shavers like the quality and comfort of its shave. An eight hour charge provides a week of shaves. The 2100 has a pop up trimmer that works well on sideburns, shaping beards and trimming mustaches. The 2100 matches the quality of shavers at twice its price.

    I have been using Philips electric shaver from last 7 years and I found it to be best. So, this is my another electric shaver which I found superb and excellent. It is easy to use and the only bad side I found about this product is I could not use it when in charge...It only works cordless. Best if this product has the feature of using it when charging. You never know when the battery runs out and at the same time you need to use it....then you will need to wait until it is charged. Well other than this...I found this as an excellent product.

    I purchased this shaver to replace an old Norelco "CORDED ONLY" shaver that was in need of a new set of blades. I was pleasantly surprised to see this model ON SALE and that it had a BATTERY and I would no longer be tethered to the wall outlet. IMPORTANT FEATURES CHARGES QUICKLY, HOLDS CHARGE, HAS LED INDICATOR, FITS COMFORTABLY IN YOUR HAND, YOU CAN WASH OUT CUTTING HEADS and IT CUTS THE BEARD CLOSE & QUICK! And even if it is not on sale, IT IS PRICED RIGHT.

    Norelco has always been my go to regarding electric shavers. I have been using their products for nearly 50 years. The quality of their products is tough to beat for the price. This particular shaver gives me everything I need in an electric shaver. I would recommend Noreleco products for any man looking for a consistently close and comfortable shave. NO RAZOR BURN, with this product.

    Norelco shaver

    I've used the Norelco shavers for many years, but this seems to be the best ! I've been using it since 01/20/17 and haven't had to recharge the lithium-ion battery yet...now I don't shave every day, as I'm retired (and don't have to!), but about 3 times a week. It has other features, too, that the other two older models,(which still work, but need new cutters; price them online or in stores and you'll see why I buy new shavers, instead !!

    I learned that if the blade cutter get dull you can get replacement for reasonable price at the same store, and the one I purchase do good for my personal use.there are other brand to choose from but philip has been around for along time that is the reason I pick these product hoping it will last a long time.

    A good low cost shaver

    There are much fancier (and more expensive) shavers out there but if you are looking for something fairly basic, this works well for the cost. My previous shaver was in the Philips Norelco - 1000 series and this is a significant jump up in quality. Love the built in trimmer and the fact that you can run water through it to clean the blades. For the 1000 series you had to disassemble the blades and use a brush. This is much easier.

    Amazing work for my head

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I don't know if it was designed for the head, buy I just bought it and it works great! Super fast, strong and a great finish. I think this is a great product independently of the price. But great price + great work is a perfect match. If you want a great product for cheap this is the shaver you need.

    I have a very dense and heavy beard, and strictly use razors to get a close shave. I was going to be in the hospital for several days following back surgery, and needed something convenient to shave with. This trimmer was well rated and lived up to it. I got a pretty close shave of both beard and bald head...very impressive. This trimmer did the job well...impressive for an electric trimmer.

    IT runs fine, only thing I thought is that it would run off the Electric cord an it is runs on Battery only. Somewhere I miss read the write up on it . It still runs for a week on one charge but I was hoping for an electric shaver that ran on the cord not a cordlesss shaver. My Recommendation is only for cordless shaver people. If u want corded not good for them

    This is my 4th Norelco in over 30 years. My last one worked fine, but left it at the hotel a couple months ago and it was about 8 years old and still working good. This new Philips Norelco - 2100 Electric Shaver works even better and was a good deal. Using it for month and a half and charged it twice; once when I bought it and one more time after that. Tough to beat at $30!

    For a very reasonably priced razor, that guaranteed to give the closest shave ever- I thought that if it did not live up to its promise, I would return it. Nope-Its a definite keeper. And I have a tough beard. 24 years in the military, using blades only, shaving in every direction-but this Norelco handles my beard with little effort. Get a nice,close shave!!

    Love this razor! I got it because every other female specific razor I have tried doesn't give a close enough shave. I use this one for my legs and it's AMAZING. Having really sensitive skin that doesn't fair well with traditional shaving this has been money well spent. The only negative I have is that when I tried to use it on my underarms, I got scratched up pretty badly.

    Great Electric Shaver

    This gives a great shave and is really easy to use. I was hesitant to get an electric shaver because the one I bought about 15 years ago wasn't very good and it was really expensive. Figured for the price, it wouldn't be much of a loss to try again. Very impressed. Does a great job and is easy to clean and maintain. The battery life is really good too.

    Bought this shaver to replace my old one which was very similar but didn’t know that this one was wireless. With that said I am not disappointed and does exactly as advertised. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking to upgrade or if it’s your first one.
