I've had many Phillips/Norelco Shavers (still do, for that matter) but this one outshines them all. Smooth, fast shaves, easy cleaning, comfortable. Simply the best!

Great Shave But Pricey

Great Shave but the cost to replace the blades is easily twice the cost of any other Norelco razor I have owned over the last 50 years. Had I known that up front I would not have ourchased it

Without a doubt the finest razor I've ever used. I couldn't be happier with all aspects of this product. Even more important, and the reason I am a lifelong customer, Philips stood behind the item 100 % when there was a minor issue.

I change to an electric razor 25 years ago. With a regular razor always had razor burn/rash. No electric razor has given me as close of a shave as the regular razor, but gave up the close shave to give up the pain of razor burn/rash. This shaver is amazing. I get as close of a shave as a regular razor without the pain of razor burn/rash. Would highly recommend.

Excellent Shaver

This is the second rotary head Norelco shaver I have owned/used and by far the best. I use Williams Lectric Shave, electric razor pre-shave and the Norelco, literally, glides over my skin. Extremely close shave. No irritation. Feels great in my hand. It didn't come with "Cleaning Kit" but I just run hot water over the shaving heads with the razor on and it self cleans. I would, and already have, recommended this razor to my friends and family. I'm a Senior Citizen and have learned over the years that you only get what you pay for, so the $200. cost seemed a little high when I was searching for a replacement razor but decided to to give myself an early Christmas present and am happy with my new toy.
