Rated 5 out of 5 by PeterP At Last a Shaver that Works
I have tried many different brands and models of shaver with the same result each time - they miss the slightly longer hairs and/or are rough on the face. I have avoided rotary cutters in the past, not believing that they could meet my needs. How wrong I was. Not only is the Shaver whisper quiet, particularly when compared with other makes, but it shaves consistently well with the minimum of fuss. It does not damage my face and nor does it miss those longer hairs. It is comfortable to hold and feels well balanced in the hand. The only slight downside is that it is slower to perform its magic than the 'lawnmowers' I have been using, but it is time well spent. This is a budget level machine so I may well move up the range when and if I decide to replace this machine. That won't happen any time soon. Well done Philips.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Rashes and Acne
This is my first electric shaver.
I have been using a clipper since that last three to four years.
Although, it is well made, easy to use and takes less than 2 minutes but whenever I shave, I get rashes and acne around my neck which heals after four days after shaving.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sobri This product lacks an important feature
The striking absence of the trimmer is very much felt. Now I have to use a disposable razor to trim side burns.
I'm used to the old HQ 6695 model.
What I do like is the ability to wash it in running water. However, after that the wiping part is not so easy. Removing the blades and putting them back again is a hassle. The bracket holding them must be of a certain fixed position, in other words you must know the orientation of the bracket when you remove it. If not the catch will not function and you can't close the top.
I do like the long lasting battery power. No need to charge all the time. It is also light, but that also made it feels flimsy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kent1834 great shaver with functions and design
great shaver that shorten shaving time to minimum with triple blade design, although not close enough as claimed, but shaving on morning kick start my day.
