    First razor for my son

    Many years ago my first razor was a Braun and it lasted a very long time before it simply refused to hold a charge one day. Sadly their quality isn't what it used to be so I avoid them now. My son is 13 and he decided he would like to shave so I read quite a few reviews and selected this model as his first razor. After the Braun died I've used another model Philips Norelco with good results so I wanted to stick with the brand. It would be nice if it came with a carry case like my model does but I couldn't see spending much more for the higher tier models that do provide the case. When he is older and shaves more frequently he will have a job and can select whatever model he wants. Hopefully this razor will last him a few years until then.

    Not bad. A little loud.

    Probably one of the best you can find for this price. But, compared to my 5 year old higher-end Norelco, I realized there really is something to be said for the next level up razor. FYI, I've used the new razor for 2 weeks. My old one is super smooth on the face, while this one was noticeable rougher. The old was very quiet, this one sounds plasticy and 2-3x as loud. The old one had 3 rings of razors on each head, this one only has one. That said, this one cut just as well as the old one. I I'll return this one and shoot for something closer to the $80-$00 price range since I plan to use it every day for years. Personally, the quality difference is worth it to me.

    Shaves as it should. This is my second one. I had to take the first one back after less than 2 weeks. Was in middle of shaving and it just stopped. Was completely charged and nothing. Put it back on charger(just in case) flashed like it was charging for about 5 seconds then went to solid green light(meaning it is charged). Took it off charger, tried and nothing. So, hopefully this second one works better. I will say this...I did have a Norelco charger before this and it lasted about 6 years w no issues before it died.

    Comfortable shave...

    I've always used Norelco shavers and have always been happy with them. This model is a nice upgrade from my last model, which I've had for a while. I get a smooth shave and no razor burn. I haven't used it with a lather yet, but I will give it a try. This razor fits nicely into my hand and is comfortable to use. It's also easy to clean - just rinse it under the tap. I'm very happy with my latest Norelco purchase!

    My previous shaver died so I was looking for an inexpensive replacement. I like the fact that this shaver can be used while being plugged in -- comes in handy when the shaver is completely discharged. Plus, when the battery eventually dies, this shaver can become a backup (by being used with the powered cord). I mention this since I purchased another shaver that could not be used while being charged (while it is plugged in). Overall this shaver does a decent job at a very reasonable price.

    Was looking for a replacement Philips Norelco shaver after having my previous one for over 5 years. While there were several in the high end price range, the clipper was a separate attachment. For travel, I wanted to stay with an all-in-one unit. This model has an embedded pop up clipper on the back, and the charging cord plugs directly into the unit instead of a separate charging base, and for less than $50, works perfectly for a nice shave without breaking the bank.

    Struggles with coarse hair

    I don't dislike this shaver, but I'm not crazy about it. It struggles with my beard, it takes so many passes over hair to cut it. It just takes way too long. I ended up going back to traditional razors. 3 stars because I'm pretty sure my beard is just too coarse.

    I've only used it dry, but this shaver seems to fit the bill. It does a satisfactory job. I just can't see spending almost ten times the price for a high end shaver, though I would guess they'd shave a little closer than this one. At this price point I simply replace them every few years rather than spending just as much to replace blades.

    I have always used foil type electric shavers so this is my first experience with a rotary style. Since I have a very tough beard, I believe the foil type shaver gives me a slightly closer shave. But if I leave my beard grow for 3-4 days, the rotary style does a better job with no pulling. Overall, I am pleased with my new rotary shaver.

    My old shaver was a norelco I bought in 2004 for less than $50. It was noisy and didn't shave all that close. What an improvement they have made in the budget Shavers today. This Norelco is super quiet and shaves close enough that I don't need to use a razor. The battery life is also a big improvement.

    After five years of occasional use, my previous Philips Norelco shaver's blades were ready for replacement, so I figured I might as well buy a new one. I've never had this model before and what a difference new blades make! I especially like that how this model can be used when wired. Good stuff!

    I purchased the razor because I had lost the cord for my old shaver. I found the new shaver to be much nicer, providing a closer shave and the battery life lasting forever so far. I charged it one time and have not had to recharge yet. Very pleased I did not just try to find a new cord.

    I've used this brand for years, and get a new one about every 2 years. Main thing I like about this one is it works with or without the cord plugged in. Most are either corded only (no battery), or cordless only (the battery must be charged before you can use it.)

    Battery life is good - lasts me for about 10-12 shaves which works out to about 3 weeks (with alternate day use). The charge time is very long - but this is advertised so can't do much about it - usually charge it overnight. Good value for the price.

    Razor bought for travel. It works fine and does what I needed however, it does not cut as close as its bigger and more expensive brothers. Just proof for the pudding you get what you pay for. I would buy this again as it is more conveienent for travel.

    Shaver is very slow to shave smooth, based on the reviews I took my chances. Well they are correct, not a very fast shaver. Takes about as long as my 3yo shaver did to shave smooth 1 day old stubble. Just wanted to save $ so this is what I get

    Got this as a gift for my husband as he has always purchased really inexpensive ones before and will not spend the $ to replace the heads. So I got him this one with the hopes that he will concede to replacing the heads instead of just getting by with a cheaper razor.

    Pretty good shave but not as close as manual razor

    The shave is somewhat irritating to the skin but not too bad. It gives a partial close shave but not as close as a manual razor but that has always been the problem with electric razors. On the whole it has been pretty good but it takes some time to adjust to it.
