    A Smart Shaver that Delivers

    The Philips Norelco 9500 shaver delivers smart technology, but incorporates a close, comfortable shave for those with skin sensitivity.

    Pros:

    - Smart pressure technology

    - Phone app that tracks your shaving

    - Close and comfortable shaves

    - Strong trimmer

    - Self-clean function

    After charging the Philips Norelco 9500, I setup and paired it to the Groom Tribe App (by Philips). I was carefully walked through steps to setup the razor and set the sensitivity to my shave style, and skin closeness. Also, the app provided tips on using the razor to maximize my shaving abilities, and to help me with skin irritation. Since this was my first time using this style of razor, I felt appreciative knowing that there was a way to setup the razor to my skin so that it would give me the shave I needed without the skin stress. Likewise, the razor lights up blue, green, and orange to indicate if I am applying not enough pressure to my face (blue), the right amount of pressure (green), and too much pressure (orange). Again, another feature that the 9500 incorporates to help you get the best shave possible.

    Next, after several shaves, I was able to sync up the razor to the Groom Tribe app. There, the app provided tips (such as shaving in a circular pattern) and timing your shaves to avoid skin irritation. This took getting used to, as I was shaving too long at first until I finally found a rhythm. The included beard trimmer is strong, and cuts around beards and sideburns with ease. I have not encountered any hair pulling issues with this trimmer, and it accurately trims with percision.

    Finally, after adjusting the pressure of the blades through the app and on the razor itself, I put to use my timing and rhythm to use; the razor gave me a close and comfortable shave. I have not had any irritation, or ingrown hair issues while shaving. The tips that I received while shaving have given me the confidence to shave. My face is smooth and less irritated after a 2-3 minute shaving session.

    Lastly, one if the best functions is the self-clean technology. When I finish shaving, I place the shaver on the included cleaning pod and then I turn the razor on. The razor and formula from the pod, work together, and clean the blades for one minute. The best part of this is, I can walk away without having to be nearby for it to clean. I would suggest opening the blade compartment and using the included microbrush to clean inside the blade housing. I have found some strands of facial hair leftover. Additionally, I would clean the trimmer separately since it does not get cleaned automatically in the pod.

    I would recommend the Philips Norelco 9500 to anyone looking to improve their shaving techniques, track their shaving, and to worry less about skin irritation.

    A Great Shaving Experience!

    About 10 years ago I transitioned to using electric razors and I haven’t really looked back since. While sufficient for my needs, one of the problems I have had with different razors I’ve tried in the past is that they never get the shave quite close enough, especially when compared side-by-side to manual razors. That being said, I found my time using the Phillips Norelco – 9500 to be the closest I’ve come to that manual razor shave, without actually using a manual razor. It does tend to work best in my experience with some water and a little shaving gel, but even as far as dry shaves go, I really like the experience quite a lot, especially if you just need a quick touch-up. Lately, as with many during the last year-and-a-half, I have been letting my beard grow longer than normal, so most of my shaving comes from cleaning my neck and upper cheekbones, along with trimming to keep things clean. So, for me, this has been an amazing product, as it saves me a ton of time, and really satisfies most of my shaving needs in one device.

    Now, if I did have one complaint, and I do, it would be the charging system. Basically, to charge the system you need to attach a power cord to the bottom of the razor while it is in the cleaning dock (or if you lay it on the counter). They do reference a separate charging stand in the manual, but it isn’t included in the package, and so the charging process can be a bit bulky to plug in and unplug the razor regularly. It would be a nice to just be able to have the cleaning stand double as a charging base, so I could leave it plugged in and charged at all times. Not a deal breaker, hence my high score still, but something to note as a minor annoyance.

    But back to the good stuff, in addition to providing a close shave and little to no skin irritation, the razor comes equipped with a light that helps tell you how much pressure you should be applying. You can customize this, but I found it works great out of the box, and really helped me dial in when I should be applying more or less pressure to get the best shave. On that note, I also highly recommend that you read the manual when you get the razor. The operation and options are relatively straight forward, but the display relies on a lot symbols and visual cues to communicate things like pressure settings, cleaning needs, and status, all of which can be a bit hard to interpret without the manual to break everything down.

    Back on the cleaning front, you can rinse the machine out with water afterwards, which makes clean-up nice and easy, and eliminates the need for special cleaning tools to keep the machine spotless. You can do more in-depth cleaning, and the manual recommends this on a monthly basis or so, but all-in-all, cleaning/maintenance is pretty easy. The dock also has a cleaning process with an included liquid solution that should last you 1-3 months depending on how often you use the shaver. Again, I recommend you read the manual to fully understand how to run the cleaning process, but essentially you power the razor on while in the dock, and the process from end-to-end takes about 1 minute or so.

    Finally, there is an app that pairs with the shaver to help you track your shaving schedule and performance. In general, I don’t find this all that useful as I tend to try to keep shaving quick and simple, but for some who are more meticulous about their grooming routine, this is a useful addition to your toolkit.

    All-in-all, I think this is a great product, and I have no issues recommending it. It’s the best electric shaver I’ve used, and I plan to have it as my main shaver for a long time to come.

    Excellent shaver and shaving experience!

    I have been using Philips Noreclo shavers for several years. I have always been a fan of how quick and easy these shavers are to use. I don’t have to use shaving cream or worry about cutting my face. I just rinse my face and the shaver with some warm water and shave. And you can even shave without water which makes shaving very easy and convenient. Beyond shaving, this shaver also includes a pop up trimmer for quick and easy trimming.

    This particular model is a step above the other Norelco shavers I have used. It is definitely a more premium model with its look and shaving capability. This model does an excellent job of shaving, I was able to get a very close and smooth shave with this shaver. It definitely seems to produce the closest and most comfortable shave of the shavers I have used. Beyond the shaving, it has a display that can show you the battery percentage which is also something that my other models did not have. It also has an LED ring around the top of the shaver to help guide you and indicate whether you are shaving properly. Additionally, you can also connect this shaver to the Philips GroomTribe app which can give you insights and recommendations based on your shaving.

    This shaver also includes a travel case which is really nice, and it includes a stand that you can sit it in and clean it with when you are done shaving. The stand holds a container that contains a cleaning solution. When you put the shaver in the stand, the shaver can run and complete a cleaning by washing itself thoroughly with the cleaning solution. While this seems like a good idea in theory, I am not a fan of this and do not plan to use it on an ongoing basis. According to the manual, the “Quick Clean Pod Cartridge” that your shaver sits in and cleans itself in has to be replaced quite regularly. If you clean your shaver in it daily, you have to replace the cartridge every month. And even if you only clean your shaver with it once a month, you have to replace the cartridge every 3 months.

    I have been using Norelco shavers for years and I have never had an issue keeping them clean with water. It is super easy and cheap to clean these shavers with water and I see no need to use the quick clean cartridge. After each use, I immediately pop open the top of the shaver and rinse everything out. It is super easy and cleans the device well. I do not recommend shaving and then not cleaning the unit. If you do that, hair particles will stick into parts of the device and be harder to clean out. But if you wash and rinse immediately each time, your unit should stay nice and clean. The packaging for this shaver says the quick clean pod cartridge is 10x more effective than water, so if you really want to get your shaver as clean as possible and don’t mind the expense and hassle of changing these pods out, then you may like this feature. At the time of this review, the quick clean cartridges cost around $6 each. Using the quick clean pods is optional and something I do not plan to do on an ongoing basis.

    Overall, this is an excellent shaver. It produces great results with a close and comfortable shave. It makes shaving effortless with no shaving cream or worries and nicking your face. It is also very stylish and has some added conveniences like a battery percentage indicator and app connectivity. It also comes with a travel case that makes it easy to pack and take with you when traveling. While I am not a fan of the quick clean cartridge capability, this is optional and does not negatively impact the device in any way. Some may like this for extra cleanliness and if so, it is definitely included and can be used. All in all, I highly recommend this shaver!

    Almost the Perfect Package

    I've been using an electric shaver for over 15 years. The technology has gotten so good that the closeness of the shave rivals a manual razor. Over the past 15 years, I've been on a quest to find the best electric shaver. I've used everything from Braun series 7/9, Panasonic arc3/arc5, to Phillip Norelco rotary shavers.

    In the last few years of using some of the higher end shavers on the market, I've come to the realization that the long held debate that foil shavers provide a closer shave than rotary shavers simply no longer holds true. For the longest time, the Braun series 7 and the Braun series 9 provided the closest shave I've ever received from an electric shaver. For me, the Braun series 9 was king for several years. This changed about a couple of years ago when I tried Phillip's flagship "S9000 Prestige" shaver. The Prestige S9000 not only gave me a slightly closer shave than my Braun series 9, but it was also a lot more comfortable contouring around the natural shape of my neck and face due to the rotary blades. The S9000 nudged the Braun series 9 out of first place. I'm happy to report that this Norelco 9500 provides the same degree of closeness as the flagship S9000 prestige. It is also extremely comfortable. Maybe even slightly more comfortable than the prestige. This is almost a perfect shaver. However, there are a few glaring cons that prevented me from giving it 5 stars. I've listed some of the pros and cons that I came across while using this shaver.

    **********PROS**********

    - Does not cause ingrown hairs! (There's been some really good razors I've used in the past like the Panasonic ARC5 that cut extremely close but also caused a lot of ingrown hairs. That's an instant deal breaker!).

    -Extremely close and comfortable shave. The rotary blade housing has an extra large surface area to provide stability and comfort. Great design choice!

    - The most comfortable handle on a shaver I've ever held. The extra long and stout handle makes it easy to grip from multiple angles depending on where you're shaving.

    - The LED lighting actually serves a functional purpose. Lights up green when you're mainting optimal pressure, orange means you're applying too much pressure, blue means it hasn't detected your skin.

    - Included on-screen display and button allows you to change the shaving feedback. If you don't care for the LEDs or the pressure fedback, you can disable it completely or partially enable it so that it will only turn orange when you're applying too much pressure.

    - Very functional bluetooth app capability that provides feedback on your shaving sessions. Philip's "Groomtribe" app gives you the duration of the shave, whether you're applying too much or too little pressure during each shaving session, and also keeps track of your technique (you should be using circular motions). My favorite feature of this is that you don't need to take the phone into the bathroom with you all the time. The shaver automatically keeps track of your shaving sessions on it's onboard memory and then transfers them via bluetooth to the app whenever your phone is in close proximity!

    - Very pleasing aromatic fragrance after a cleaning cycle using the included quick clean pod.

    - Only takes 1 minute to complete a cleaning cycle. Other razors I've had in the past that came with cleaning stations would take upwards of 5 to 10 minutes of loud cleaning cycles.

    - Love the included release button that opens the shaving head. This allows you to quickly run some warm water in the hair chamber to clean it out. Convenient if you run out of cleaning solution or just want a quick clean.

    - Very soft yet rigid travel case. One of the softest materials I've ever felt. Love that it's a low profile case.

    - Good battery life. On a 100% charge, a 3 minute shave will only drop it down to 94%.

    - Great pop up sideburn trimmer. Don't need to fuss about with swapping out attachments.

    - IPX7 certified so you can use this in the shower with no worries.

    - Made in Netherlands!

    **********CONS**********

    - Really not a fan of the charging system. As you can tell by the picture, you have to manually attach and detach the power cord to the bottom of the shaver when it's sitting upright on the cleaning station. Not only does this look a bit tacky, but it also requires too much manual overhead with constantly having to attach and detach the cable. I'm not sure why Phillips just didn't integrate the charging system into the cleaning station. This is big deal and largely the reason I dropped a star on an otherwise perfect shaver.

    - You can't have the shaver plugged into the power cord during a cleaning cycle. I understand that this is largely due to the safety mechanism that prevents the shaver from being used on your face when plugged in but I was hoping it could be charged during a cleaning cycle.

    - Not a fan of the shiny plastic faux chrome accent. I don't think plastic should ever be chrome plated. I think either adding an actual metal accent or just leaving it frosted silver would look much better in my opinion.

    - No manual speed adjustment. I must admit that I think the automatic speed that the shaver uses is absolutely perfect and does a great job of balancing speed and comfort. However, it's nice to have the ability to manually increase/decrease the speed for personal preference.

    Overall, the Philips Norelco 9500 is almost the perfect package. In terms of the performance alone and the shave that it produces, this is the pinnacle. You will not be disapointed with the level of comfort, noise, and the extremely close shave that this unit produces. However, the lack of an integrated charging system on the cleaning station is a huge miss for me. If you can overlook this, then this is a fantastic shaver that I'm sure will bring you years of excellent grooming.

    You think u don’t need this much, but you do!

    I’m 36 and just recently started “shaving” never liked using a razer. Always used a walh peanut sub zero clipper to get my facial hair off. I know that’s not ideal. But I really hated using a razor. I do have sensitive skin. And can’t even use sensitive shaving cream. So last yr I decided to try Philips wet dry electric razer. I loved it right away. It shaved my face completely and didn’t require using shaving cream. But that is a base model. I thought I didn’t needed a more expensive model from Philips. I always knew that philips is the leader in personal hygiene. So I said i would give this higher end 9500 model a try. And man o man. This thing is not only beautiful, cool and clean. It shaves way better than my old entry level. Smooth face with no damage to my sensitive skin without using any cream. The Built in sensor that lets you know you are shaving at the perfect angel is great. It actually matters how you position these things and not just about pushing down hard. Works perfectly and looks cool. I love RGB so this is an extra value. Lol.

    Super well built and very classy. My wife and my best friend said it looked amazing.

    Charging is fast and this uses the same charger as my old one. Just in Case I lose one or the kids mess with it. The shaver come with a circle stand/holder that doubles as a cleaning station. One free refill is included.

    LCD display is nice and gives you all necessary info and it does not stay on after you turn off. Saves battery. This is so fancy and I love that.

    But This is a shaver 1st and foremost. It shaves exceptionally well. Last forever.. has an lcd screen. And looks amazing while doing it. It may cost more but for the quality you get every thing you wish for and a little bit more. Plus the warranty is great should anything happen. I personally have had great experiences with Philips warranty. I highly recommend 100%. You won’t be disappointed I’m sure!

    Ps-I can’t really speak about the pop up/out trimmer as I can’t or won’t use since I don’t like facial hair. But I’m sure it works great as well!

    Clean shave and doesn't irritate my skin

    The pivot heads tilt nicely to conform to your face and neck. I like the feedback lights that show if you are pushing to hard, not enough, or just right. That helped get used to it very quickly. It's remarkably quiet - at first I thought I had it on some kind of "low setting," but it's just a lot quieter than my old shaver.

    The digital lock is great for travel to keep it from coming on and it comes with a protective travel case. The cleaning cartridge is easy to use and it only takes a minute to run.

    I have a beard and the flip out trimmer works well for managing beard lines and upper lip.

    Been using for about a week and so far doesn't irritate my skin. There's an optional Bluetooth connected app that tracks how well your shave was, how long, reminders to clean, a guided shave, etc. It also has videos to show you how to use the razor features, the cleaning pod, etc.

    Overall pleased.

    Sweet Shaver!

    I have owned a few different electric shavers, and this Norelco 9500 is the best yet! Right out of the box and onto the charger, I gave it a full charge and tried it out on my 3 days of growth. No issues at all, fast, smooth and fairly quiet!

    It came with a Quick clean pod - a first for me. After unsealing the liquid cartridge and placing it into the pod - I saw how the contraption worked and was pretty impressed. You turn the shaver on as it sits upside down in the cleaning pod, and it cycles on and off - cleaning, de-odorizing and lubricating the shaver all at once. Seems to take about 30-60 seconds. It says to let it sit in there until it dries. Done.

    If you've never used an electric razor before, you'll notice that you can shave in about 1/3 of the time. You can even sit down and do 2 jobs at once if you want - or use it in the shower!

    Overall, it comes with a case, charger cord, cleaning pod and cartridge. I would have liked a charging stand though like I have for my other shavers....thus 4 stars.

    Nice shave, cleaning/charging process needs work

    I love the closeness and comfort of the shave. The pressure light is nice to teach you how to get the best shave. I love the flip-up trimmer instead of needing a separate attachment. The clean and charge cycle is clunky for a top-of-the-line razor. To do so, I have to insert the razor into the QuickClean tray, press the power button, wait for the cleaning cycle to finish, then attach the cable to the top of the razor. It wastes time for me and looks slapdash while charging.

    Everything about the S9000 says high quality

    Philips Shaver S9000 Prestige with Qi-Charger - Opening the packaging of the newest premium — I mean prestige —- shaver from Philips will remove any doubts you might have about where this shaver fits in the world of electrics. Everything says high quality: the brushed aluminum metal finish, premium switching and multi-speed settings, informative LCD display, and overall feel in your hand are all perfect. The back of the shaver has a grippy, rubber-like, embossed surface. This model adds an elegant wireless charging plate that is molded so the shaver always rests with the ideal charging orientation. The carry case is a bit larger than necessary, but it should hold anything else in your shaving routine. You don’t get a cleaning station, which I never replenish properly, anyway. I prefer my own cleaning rituals.

    Philips approach to trimmers is a separate twist off/on accessory that can be swapped with their newest cutting head assembly. This new cutter assembly is sleek and simple to open for cleaning, but it is plastic, not metal. You can feel the surge of power when you switch the motor on, but this may be the quietest electric shaver I’ve ever owned.

    PERFORMANCE: Starting your shaving experience reveals the first compromise. There is NO way to charge other than the wireless plate for THIS model and there is NO quick charge. It is definitely slower than the typical charging brick. and it takes up more space. But the plate is so cool. I don’t see this as an issue; but, you might. A typical shave for me uses about 11% of the charge. This means I can take an 9 day vacation while leaving the charger home.

    Dry shaving wasn’t difficult and was very close and comfortable. Even after a few days of beard growth these new cutters had NO difficulty staying comfortable or getting close. NO hair pulling. If you think you know Philips rotary shavers, you need to give this new design a try, And yet, I’m going to suggest adding a pre-shave lotion or shaving under a shower or with a shaving cream. It elevates the whole experience to the level of a facial Spa treatment. Your partner is going to thank you.

    RECOMMENDATIONS: I’ve switched between foil and rotary shavers over the years. For me, the high-end shavers of either type have proven their value. I appreciate the added comfort and closeness. This Philips is easily one of the best. The Philips Prestige 9000 series adds the cool wireless charger with its pluses and minuses. There are probably other versions of this shaver without the Qi charger for a lower price, but I like this whole package as is.

    My experience with the new SP9860

    A decent shave , but maybe not quite as good as I used to get with my 15 year old ArciTec Phillips/Norelco , and certainly not as close as a blade . Lots of bells and whistles so I have concerns for longevity - I have no illusions that this one will last 15 years without problems . My old arcitec did last that long .

    Cleaning is more of a hassle than the arcitec - just flip the heads open and rinse . This model requires that you pry off the cutting head holder , then remove a retaining ring , to lift out the cutter and rinse the matching part . Maybe the process will get easier with practice ? Instructions warn that the cutters are matched individually to the mating part , so I clean only one at a time when the retaining ring is removed . Replacing the retaining ring was not easy for my old fumblefingers !

    I do like the updated flat charging system , and the zippered case .

    Fantastic quality

    i’ve only use this razor once but I’m very impressed with the shave and the build quality. It feels fantastic in your hand and has a great build quality. some have asked the question if it can be charged with a cord as well and many purchasers have said no, with Norelco answering yes. I want to help clear that up at the bottom of the handle there’s a small hole that you can stick a paper clip in and that cover will pop off revealing a standard Norelco plug-in so yes it can be charged both wirelessly and with a cord that is not provided but if you were a previous owner of a Norocco razor it’s the same cord. This is my third norelco razor in over 20 years all of which lasting over 10 years each so I am hoping the same for this one.

    Great shaver!

    Great shaver, took me a little bit to get used to dry shaving, but it was easy and painless with this shaver! No hair pulling at all. It just took a couple of passes compared to a regular shaver (I have thick facial hair). It did leave my skin a little dry, however I don't blame the shaver, I live in a very dry weather area, so perhaps I should try wet shaving next time, you can do that with this shaver! It can be used either wet or dry!

    It comes with a trimmer attachment to, which is great. I like the included qi wireless charger, it may work with other qi enabled devices, I have not tried, but will do so with a phone soon, since the qi is a standard.

    You have to clean it after every shave, which is easy just rinsing it. The manual says you have to replace the blades after a long while, so time will tell how long the original one lasts, I just hope the replacements are not that expensive. In all, after using it, no way I'm going back to regular shavers!

    Wow, an electric razor that finally works!!!!

    Over the years i have had many electric shavers, usually the expensive ones ($2-300.00), only to use for a few weeks then switch back to the precision of a blade. I'll use my blade for a couple years then get a wild hair and buy a fancy electric shaver. Then switch back and so on and so on...

    Well recently i saw this electric razor at BestBuy, with the wireless charging pad, it caught my attention in that it was wet / dry and could charge wirelessly, no dumb cord needed, i have enough in my bathroom sink area as it is (thanks Alexa).

    I have been using it about 3 weeks now and can honestly say, without a doubt, bar NONE, this is the best electric shaver i have ever used, it gives me a extremely close shave, dry with no lotion or anything, only time i use a razor is just to get my sideburns clean, that little area which is hard to get with any electric razor. Im extremely impressed with this particular electric shaver. I would easily toss this in my bag and take on a trip with me, i'm pretty sure you can unplug the wireless charging pad and use that power cable as a direct cable into the electric razor.

    Cleaning it is a breeze, it just pops open, rinse it with water, let it dry and your back in business. If you can afford this, and your picky about a VERY close shave i would highly recommend this electric razor. I'm not small guy either, i have a pretty rough stubble on my face and this thing just performs 5 stars.

    Ok, now i'm late to work writing a dumb review! Hope this helps!

    Great product closest shave ever!

    This is the beat razor I have ever used. The shave is close and comfortable. I really like the different shave speeds also. Cleans up quickly and I really like the charging pad!

    With three speeds, I get a clean, close shave.

    I was so impressed by the caring case, which does a great job protecting the shaver in storage or on the go.

    Charging is so cool. Just plug in the USB cable into the transformer of really any USB port that can support charging, and the modern wireless charger does its thing. The ring glows to let you know you've placed the shaver correctly into its recessed dish.

    After a week, my beard and face were accustomed to the triple header's whirling blades. No problem since I've used an electric shaver on and off since I borrowed my Dad's Norelco back in the '70's.

    Cleaning the blades are quicke. Pop off the blades head and run the whole thing under the tap. Its able to shave wet or dry.

    I use lectric shave as it helps the head glide easier over my face. No razor burns for me!

    Also comes with a trimmer attachment for grooming side burns, and other hairlines (eye brows for me). Just pop off the triple head from the top and snap in the trimmer. simple and convenient.

    Besides the great shave, the styling is handsome. Built in display shows charge left. I used about 15 % in four days.

    Premium & Excellent Shaver with Smart Features

    ==== Summary ====

    The Philips Norelco S9000 Prestige is an excellent rotary shaver that is light, easy to operate, and offers a close shave that rivals a foil shaver. The fit-and-finish is excellent and both the shaver and its carrying case feel premium and durable. Smart features such as Travel Lock and Cleaning Reminder are thoughtful and helpful additions. It is a great product from Philips.

    *Pros:

    -Premium feel, nice fit-and-finish, & great build quality.

    -Easy to operate.

    -IPX7 water-resistant.

    -Quiet operation.

    -Nice, big LED screen.

    -Easy maintenance.

    -Helpful smart features (Travel Lock, Cleaning Reminder, Replacement Reminder).

    *Cons:

    -None

    ==== Design ====

    I was impressed from the get-go when I started unboxing the S9000 Prestige. The box is attractive and has a nice, soft texture to it. The parts are neatly organized inside and easy to unpack everything. It kind of felt like I was unpacking a premium smartphone from Samsung.

    The carrying case for the S9000 is the nicest of its kind I've seen and touched so far. It is a hard case with soft textures front and back and it exudes quality and durability. The soft texture offers solid grip and reminded me of high-end eye glassware cases. Just by looking at the carrying case, you know there is something nice and expensive inside.

    As for the shaver itself, the S9000 Prestige is constructed very well with its attractive matte black and brushed stainless steel design. Despite the appearance of lots of metal components, the unit is surprisingly light and comfortable to use for an extended period of time. All the seams and lines are perfect and the fit-and-finish is excellent.

    Operating and maintaining the S9000 couldn't be any easier. To start shaving, just press the big Power Button, use the + and - buttons to set your shaving comfort level (Low, Medium, and Fast), then put the three rotary heads on your skin to start shaving while making small circular motions.

    Here is a nice tutorial video from Philips on how to shave with the S9000 Prestige for those not familiar with rotary shavers:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GjUCQBVKf4

    After shaving is finished, I cleaned the shaver by turning it on and running the head under some warm tap water as instructed. For a more thorough cleaning, you can just pull off the top part of the rotary shaver head to rinse off the hair chamber inside and/or twist off the three individual shaver rings. Once done, you just snap the top back on to the base. Super simple and easy.

    The smart features of the S9000 are conveyed through the big and bright LED screen & offers useful information at a glance - the battery level, the shaving comfort level, and notifications if any are available (e.g., Battery Low, Cleaning Reminder, Travel Lock, Overheating, and Replacement Reminder). I find Travel Lock to be an especially thoughtful and helpful addition as it can prevent accidental power-on and drainage of battery.

    The S9000 came with a single extra attachment - the Sideburn/Mustache precision trimmer. It was a simple affair to pull off the rotary shaving head and snap on the attachment. And it performed very well neatly trimming my sideburns.

    For design and build quality, I give the Norelco S9000 Elite (SP9820) a 10 out of 10~!

    ==== Performance ====

    Having used a Philips Norelco rotary shaver in the past before switching to a Braun foil shaver, I was pleasantly surprised by how close the shave was. The older Norelco model I used from about 6 years ago was not able to shave as close as my Braun foil shaver and it was too time-consuming to use due to the many passes I had to make on the same spot.

    With the S9000, not only is the shave as close as my Braun Series 7 foil shaver - if not better according to my wifey - it doesn't require so many passes that I get impatient and frustrated. As a result, I'm quite pleased with it and I can put aside the Braun as a backup now.

    Other aspects of the S9000 that compares more favorably to my foil shaver is that it is much quieter in operation and it does a much, much better job at shaving the angled areas of my face (i.e., jaw area) and my neck area. This is just an inherent advantage of a rotary shaver compared to a foil shaver.

    It is not a complete win for the S9000, however. Although it offers a closer shave than my foil shaver, the S9000 does require more shaving passes than the foil. Approximately, I would say that my shaving time increased by about 1 minute overall.

    With that said, I rate shaving closeness a 10 out of 10, time consumed a 8.5 out of 10, and overall performance & satisfaction a 9.5.

    ==== Closing Thoughts ====

    Philips has created a fantastic rotary shaver that is premium in build with great fit-and-finish that is lightweight, performant, and simple in operation and maintenance. The built-in smart features such as Travel Lock and Cleaning Reminder are great additions. I would highly recommend the S9000 Prestige for those looking for a close shave with a quiet operation and easy maintenance.

    Closest shave ever!

    Over the years I have jumped back and forth between razor and electric for shaving. I like safety and convenience of electric shavers, but I also like the closeness of a razor. Oh, the dilemma. Until I got ahold of the Norelco S9000 Prestige electric shaver. Out of all the electrics I have tried in the past, this is the first one to give me the closest feel to a razor shave. With other electrics, to get a close shave, I would have to add extra pressure which would produce a bit of a razor burn. (Close, but, Home Alone type of face on fire when applying aftershave.) With the S9000 and its three floating heads, no extra pressure is needed. The feel of the three rotating heads is quite comfortable and they seem to almost wrap around the contours of my chin and face. With this being said, let’s dive into what I like and dislike:

    Likes

    - Device Feel: The unit is light in weight but not too light. The contoured shape feels good in my hand and the placement of the speed and power buttons do not get in the way when shaving. The side and back rubber provides a firm grip, even when wet, and blends well with the metal.

    - Digital Display: The display is a nice touch. As soon as the device feels your touch or movement, it displays the remaining battery percentage. Other information displayed includes a charging indicator, battery low, personal comfort speed setting, a cleaning reminder, travel lock indicator, head replacement reminder, blocked shaving head indicator, and the “hey dummy, unplug me before shaving” indicator.

    - Shaving Heads: The three rotating shaving heads are the most comfortable I’ve ever felt. The pivoting platforms for each head provides for a close shave around the contours of your face. Even my sensitive skin loves the floating feel of the heads. The design of the shaving heads are supposed to sense the beard density and automatically adjust for handling up to a weeks worth of growth. (Which has happened only once in my entire life, so I’ll not be testing this feature.) The shape and design of the shaving heads provided me with a very close shave, even in the tight under the nose curve and over the point of the chin spots, which are my danger spots with a razor. (I won’t get into the gory details.)

    - Battery Life: I’ve been using this shaver for three weeks and I’m only at 50% battery after a single overnight charge. I’m impressed.

    - Cleaning: I love that I can rinse the heads under a running faucet without worrying about getting the rest of the device wet. In fact, for a wet shave, you can use the device in the shower. Any water suspended within the heads actually flows through the middle of the device and out the bottom.

    - Comfort Setting: The speed of the rotation of the heads is adjustable with three different speed settings. I like using the lowest setting for those times when I’m trying to be quiet, but I personally prefer the medium setting for a close shave.

    Dislikes

    - Precision Trimmer: While the trimmer works fine and is very precise, I personally don’t like the idea of having to pull off the shaving heads and then snap in the trimmer. I always feel like it’s wrong to yank the heads off of the device and that I might break it.

    - The Travel Case: The case is just way too snug for the shaver, the cord, and the trimmer. I was able to do it, but I really had to work hard at it.

    Overall, I’m very happy and satisfied with this shaver. It is, by far, the best electric shaver I have ever owned and provides the closest thing to a razor shave. Being able to use it in the shower is a huge plus for me and it has always performed well. Worth the price? Indeed.

    Norelco's Best Looking Rotary Shaver

    This Norelco S9000 Prestige rotary shaver does have an improved build quality compared to Norelco’s earlier models of rotary shavers. This Norelco is built about as good as an electric rotary shaver could be made.

    The Norelco S9000 Prestige rotary shaver is built mostly of stainless steel. It is not immediately obvious that this shaver is built of stainless steel, as many products nowadays are made of plastic that is coated in such a way that it looks metallic. I stuck a magnet to the outside of the Norelco shaver, and the magnet does stick to it, so this is how I knew it was made of real stainless steel, and not metallic looking plastic. See the pictures that I included with my review, as the images show the magnet stuck to the stainless steel on the Norelco shaver.

    Most of my experience with electric shavers has been using the foil type of shaver, and before now, I have never owned a rotary shaver. Now that I have a Norelco rotary shaver, I am now able to compare the two types of electric shavers: here is my assessment:

    This Norelco rotary shaver is noticeably quieter than a foil type of electric shaver. This Norelco rotary shaver does shave differently than a foil shaver, but the shave is about as close. It did take awhile to get used to the rotary style of shaver after having used a foil type of shaver for many years. In my opinion, the functioning of a foil type of electric shaver is simpler and the foil design has less moving parts. The foil type of shaver is also a bit easier to shave with, and the foil type of shaver is easier to clean after a shaving session. Both types of electric shavers have advantages and disadvantages. This Norelco S9000 rotary shaver is advertised to “cut exceptionally close - even on a 7 day beard.” I did find that this Norelco rotary shaver does cut a longer beard a bit better than a foil type of shaver can. With that said, optimally, a long beard should be cut with a beard trimmer first, then the electric shaver can finish off the beard, if you were to use an electric shaver to cut a long beard on a regular basis, this would only wear out the shaver blades quicker than normal.

    The way that the rotary shaving blades assembly is removed from the swiveling gearbox is a bit awkward at first, but after practicing disassembling it several times, the process is fairly easy.

    I like to clean an electric shaver almost every time after is is used, to keep it functioning as good as possible. The process of cleaning the blades on this Norelco rotary shaver, took almost as long as the process of shaving my beard. It is best to apply a bit of soap to the blade areas, then snap the cutting blades assembly back onto the swiveling gearbox, and then power on the shaver for like 20 seconds to let the soap dissolve any oil and grease. Finally it is necessary to dip the rotating blades into a bowl of warm or hot water for 20 seconds, to rinse off the soap. If this process is not done fairly regularly, the rotary cutting blades will get to be a bit bogged down by the oil and grease residue.

    The precision trimmer attachment which is included, is nice to have, but it is really only good for accurate trimming of small areas such as the sideburns The precision trimmer attachment is not very capable at cutting the main beard if ever it needs it. I often do not shave for like 5 days in a row, and then my beard is too long to be easily cut with an electric shaver, at which point it is necessary for me to trim my beard down as much as possible with a beard trimmer, then shaving with an electric shaver is easier and quicker. If Norelco would have made the precision trimmer into a high quality whole beard trimming attachment, then this would have been a substantial improvement in the overall quality of this Norelco beard shaving kit. After all, what is a customer going to be more satisfied with? The barely capable precision trimmer that is good only for accurate trimming of certain parts of the beard, or a versatile high quality beard trimming attachment which could easily cut a thick beard if necessary.

    The power supply that is included is decent, and I describe it as only decent, because I also own a $50 Norelco beard trimmer which has an almost identical power supply. The way I look at is the following: This Norelco rotary shaver has an original selling price of $300, this is 6 times more than my Norelco beard trimmer, it would seem like this Norelco S9000 Prestige rotary shaver should have a substantially better power supply. This situation is only going to cause the customer to wonder why a $50 beard trimmer would have virtually the same power supply that a $300 rotary shaver has. With that being said, when I first received my $50 Norelco beard trimmer several years ago, I felt like it was a pretty decent power supply, and it is a pretty good power supply for a $50 beard trimmer, but the included power supply just does not match the quality of the Norelco S9000 rotary shaver itself. In my opinion a newly designed and improved rotary shaver, should have a newly designed and improved power supply to go along with it.

    This Norelco S9000 Prestige rotary shaver does have a few nice features that are unique. The first unique feature is that it has a proximity sensor which displays the battery percentage when the shaver senses motion, so there is no need to turn it on to see how much battery power remains. The second unique feature is that this Norelco rotary shaver has 3 motor speeds.

    Overall this is one of the best looking and well built electric shavers I have ever seen. I am rating this Norelco S9000 Prestige rotary shaver kit at 3.5 out of 5 stars,. I would have rated this Norelco rotary shaver at closer to 5 stars, if it had an impressive beard trimming attachment and a better power supply.

    For a shave as close as a blade...

    This is the best electric shaver that I have ever used. I should probably elaborate some more on that, but honestly that statement rings true for me. The design of this shaver is incredible, I have never had one that felt so good in the hand as this one and the chrome/black really is sharp looking. I have been using electric razors for all of my life and all but one of them was a Norelco one. Norelco as a company stands behind their products and they have always been helpful when I did have an issue with a razor…even past the warranty. Speaking of which, you get two years with this one and if you register online, they give you an additional 6 months. The razor’s blades will last you about a year and it has an indicator that will let you know when it’s time to replace them. The head comes off and you are also give a trimmer attachment to put on. That is probably my only gripe…I do find myself using the trimmer a lot and my previous razors all had that built into the body, but this one you have to remove the head and swap it out. A minor inconvenience, but it does allow for additional attachments such as the skin cleansing brush (not included with this model). I plan to check that feature out. The buttons are easy to use as well. There is a power button and a toggle button where you can increase the power level by 3 settings. Also, the battery percentage is easy to see and will light up when you move the razor. There is also a clean head reminder. Of course this is a wet/dry shaver and sturdy carrying case and power adapter is included as well. My previous Norelco chargers are the same so it’s nice to see that they have not changed that.

    Great Razor!

    I have used various foil razors over the years, and they work very well when shaving every day, once you get into two, three, four-day old stubble they do not work that well. I would end up using blade razor I decided to try Norelco, I had used Norelco several years back, liked it, but changed to a foil when the razor would not hold a charge anymore. I have used it for a month, and I must say this razor saves as close as any foil and can handle a 4-day beard growth. The razor is extremely easy to clean, and you do not need a cleaning station, just rinse, and go. Battery life is particularly good. I would recommend this razor to anyone.

    Excellent shaver if you don't like shaving cream!

    Philips Norelco has created a sleek, stylish electric shaver that works really well for those who aren't too keen on using shaving cream during their daily/weekly/? shaving ritual.

    To be clear, though, you can use shaving cream if you'd like; since the device is water-resistant (it can be used in the shower), the shaver won't get ruined.

    For me, I tested the shaver after about two weeks' worth of growth -- effectively having a beard where the facial hair was about half an inch long (I have course hair, so I could be representative of a lot of guys out there!). While it did take some doing -- meaning unlike a straight razor, I did have to go over areas a number of times -- the shaver did its job, with very little skin irritation (I don't have the most sensitive skin, but I can definitely tell when I do something different to my face in this respect).

    Using a swirling motion (as recommended by Philips Norelco), I could get a baby-smooth result with this device. Further, there is an LCD panel on the front of the shaver that shows how much charge is left, as well as iconic reminders to clean out the shave heads (simply done by pulling the set of three heads straight off the top). Also, for those who travel on a regular basis, there is a way to lock the power button so that you don't waste a charge in a suitcase.

    The only thing to watch out for is replacing the blades approximately every year. The company specifically states on the shaver handle what you'd need to order (which is good; I hate having to search out replacement model numbers!). However, since this particular model is so new, there's no way to currently know how much they'll cost.

    I am a regular subscriber to a well-known shaving service. Is this shaver good enough to replace that service? If the unit I received also included a trimmer attachment to maintain my goatee and I knew how much Philips Norelco would charge for replacement blades, there's a very good possibility that I'd be a "yes" on that.

    Great shaving experience

    Philips Norelco - Norelco S9000 Prestige Wet/Dry Electric Shaver - Light Brushed Chrome

    Some important things to know about this shaver:

    • A full charge takes about 60 minutes. Since mine came out of the box with a 10% charge, the initial charge took me less than the advertised 60 minutes.

    • A five-minute charge gets you enough power for one shave.

    • It’s waterproof and can be used in the shower (wet shave using either a shaving foam or gel).

    • They recommend cleaning the heads after each shave for best results. (Simply run them under warm water.)

    • The shaving heads should be changed annually.

    • There’s a full two-year warranty and a 45-day money-back guarantee.

    • It comes in a nice hard-shell protective travel case which holds the razor, the clip-on trimmer and the charger.

    • The electronic display provides lots of information, including remaining battery percentage. It alerts you when the battery is low by a flashing orange light and a beeping sound. There’s also a reminder to clean the shaver and it alerts you when it’s time to replace the heads. It also reminds you to unplug the razor before using.

    • There’s a safety feature that prevents the shaver from working if the shaving heads are blocked and need cleaning or if the heads are damaged and need replacing.

    • There are three personal comfort levels from high to low for the user’s personal preference.

    Having used lower-priced triple head shavers for years, I was anxious to see how this more expensive shaver compared. While the documentation says it may take up to three weeks for your face to get used to the shaver, my previous use of this type of shaver meant I was able to get a great shave right out of the box.

    It’s a great feeling when you get a really good close shave, and this shaver produced a wife-approved shave that I hadn’t experienced for quite some time. I look forward to many more “close shaves” of the good kind.

    Just Wow!

    When I was introduced to shaving, I tried my Dad's Sunbeam, Remington foil and a DE analog. I ended up doing the DE and got tired of nicks and cuts and skin irritation. in 1972, I started an almost 50 year relationship with Norelco "rotary" products. I went as high as $200+ in that line and it seems they have plateaued as far as technology advances are concerned. I was fed up with the poor quality of replacement blades available today, so I began a search for a replacement shaver.

    After reading numerous reviews, mostly pro, I decided to give the Arc5 a shot. All I can say is if you find yourself in my spot, do not hesitate. Get this shaver with the cleaning/charging unit, STAT!

    PROS: The closest shave I've gotten, next to a razor, EVER.

    Did NOT irritate my skin (I have sensitive skin)

    Larger head > shorter shave time

    Flex head follows your facial contours (jaw line, neck, etc.)

    Beard "sensor" adjusts to your beard's current length.

    Trimmer does a good job.

    Shaver has a "built-in" cleaning function, which you can use if you're travelling, or in between "tank" cleanings.

    Head size and shaving method delivers a faster shave.

    The cleaning/charging base has a "Dry/charge" function.

    CONS: Price of replacement heads and cleaning solution concentrate.

    I got this in anticipation of my upcoming birthday (thank you, honey!) and read the manual. I HAD to check the unit out, so I put some pre-shave lotion on and charged the shaver. Some people complain about the size of the shaver. It really is comparable to the Norelco I was using, but the shape of the head is what speeds your shave along. (It covers more territory).

    Since there is usually a break-in time for new shaving methods, I expect my shaves to improve over the next week. I used primarily an up and down motion on my face, then I changed direction and orientation on my chin and neck. One complaint I avoided is on my upper lip I have a moustache, so I didn't have a problem with trying to get a close shave there. After finishing and evaluating the shave quality, I took the head off, and rinsed it and the shaver under the tap. Then, I wiped excess water off both and reassembled the unit and dropped it into the cleaning/charging base and put it on dry.

    I haven't used the cleaning function of the tank yet, but will update my review after I've done so.

    For things like shaving my ears, I have a companion Panasonic trimmer that I use for things no shaver can do.

    Summary: Get one! You have 30 days to decide whether you want to keep it.

    Excellent Shaver, Clean, Close Shave

    After using Braun's best for many years, I decided to give the Panasonic a shot. There are some really thorough reviews of this razor elsewhere online, but in brief, it delivers a very close shave, and the cleaning station works very well.

    Cons: Some reviews mention that this shaver is not particularly good for sensitive faces, and I can see that as being valid, however my face is not what I would call particularly sensitive, and I have not found this razor prone to irritate my skin. The shaver head is pretty large, but this really only affects shaving below the nose

    Pros: Price is a little less than the comparable Braun, and the shave is just a bit closer than the Braun. This is noticeable after shaving, and late in the day (less shadow) as well. The cleaning station cleans the head better than the Braun based on my experience with both, however I do miss the lemony-machine oil smell that the Braun cleaning solution leaves. The Panasonic's solution cleans the shaver very effectively, and leaves no noticeable scent or oily residue at all. I also think this razor is slightly quieter than the Braun, or at least, the pitch is a little different.

    I have had mixed results over the years with Braun replacement cutter foil cartridges, with some being sub-par. From my research, the Panasonic is its top competitor. Both offer several days to try the razor and return it if you don't like it, and both seem to be outstanding razors. I think the Panasonic holds the edge when it comes to closeness and cleaning station effectiveness, and hopefully, consistently top quality replacement cutter foil cartridges.

    An excellent product

    Got my first shave with it this morning and I am astonished at how close a shave I got.

    I simply wet my face with warm water to open up the pores and skipped the shaving cream. In about 8 minutes I had a shave about as close as a disposable razor gets me l, which I honestly wasn’t expecting from an electric shaver, even one as good as this. A bit of mild irritation followed but I expect that on my first day with an electric shaver. No cuts, either.

    The grip can be a little slippery when wet and I’m not sure how well this would hold up if accidentally dropped from 6 feet up, but other than that the quality is good.

    Overall, I’m very impressed. My facial hair isn’t what I’d consider extremely thick but it’s certainly dense, and this had no trouble cutting right through it. I recommend it.

    Excellent razor

    I am extremely impressed by this razor. I did get it for $50 off but I looked up reviews before I did and people were saying it was the best out there and I do have a Braun Series 5 that I got from my grandfather that passed so I don't know if he ever changed any of the blades but the Braun was pretty rough on my face every time but with this razor I didn't feel any roughness and it took about 8 minutes before I was finished but compared to the Braun not being able to get everything this one is great and my face is baby soft.

    Buy this.

    Honestly, this is the best razor I've ever used. Returned Braun series 9 and now have fallen in love with the Arc5. It shaves so much closer. It's actually my second one, no fault of Panasonic. I dropped it on a tile floor and broke it. I had a warranty on it, and Best Buy just swapped it out. Definitely get the one with the base. That cleaner does wonders to that razor. Also, you won't have to dismantle it every time to clean it, and then have to let it dry. The cleaning station does it all. You will not regret this purchase.

    Great Smooth Shave!

    I upgraded to the series 9 9376cc and my face is less irritated when using skin sensitive shave gel and the big thing I like about the Shaver System is the cleaner and charge station has fans integrated so your shaver is dry and NOT DRIPPING wet. I have a coarse beard if I don't shave after about a week then my beard is very noticeable. I DON'T RECCOMEND USING THIS ON A FULL BEARD. I usually use it every 4-5 days and seems to do the trick and it cleans great!!!

    A great upgrade

    Over 7 years ago I purchased the Braun 7526 (the top of the line at the time like this one) and I've NEVER had any issue(s) with it. This one seem a little lighter in weight that it's sister version. The head is larger and the cleaner/base is a little larger than the former version. I'm hoping to get 7 plus years out of this version too. It may seem a little expensive but if this version is anything like my last, it's very much worth the initial cost. This one has a wet/dry mode (previous didn't). It allows you to choose between 1.2 or 3 levels of cleaning (if you purchase the base cleaner station (highly recommended). The cleaner cartage last about 20-30 days at 1 time a day cleaning intervals. All in all, I'm 2 thumbs up for this model.

    This new Series 9 Braun live up to the hype. I have owned several Braun shavers over the years and this one is by far the best one. I prefer the quietness of my Norelco 9300, but I prefer the speed of shaving with this Series 9 Braun.

    Love This Braun!!!

    For years I’ve been using the Fusion Pro razor. After researching the Braun 9295cc, I decided to give it a try. I purchased it on 12-27-18. After charging the Braun in the cleaning and charging base, I used it. I can say I’m very pleased with the result. I experienced the same level of closeness and more comfort with the Braun as I had with the Fusion. I’m planning on using this Braun for years to come!!!

    Close shave, better than expected

    I hate shaving because I always seem to either cut above my lip,or I end up with several in grown hair. I’ve always been wary of electric razors but decided to give this a chance. I am very pleased with this device and have tried it out for a few weeks now.

    Pros:

    -precise shave. It gets clean to the skin without any cuts on my face due to the 5 blades that give me a nice smooth movement.

    -noise: it’s quiet which I like a lot. I was afraid it would be too loud in the morning when my family is asleep, but there is a nice soft sound that is not too loud.

    -movement: it moves along my chin and mouth area very nicely. There is a very loose pivot joint that allows it to navigate your face in smooth motions.

    -battery life. When first opened and powered on, the Digital display indicates you have about 30% charged. After about an hour of charging I was at full power. It’s been over a week and I’ll use it every morning and the battery life is at 80%.

    -traveling pouch. Nice little leather-like pouch addition to store it in.

    Cons:

    -size: it’s somewhat bulky for my hand, can get a little uncomfortable. It’s not too heavy but feels awkward in my hand.

    -sideburn trimmer: this doesn’t get a clean cut to my sideburns due to the position of the head. When you pop out the trimmer, the head is now locked where it will not move. But the trimmer is either too short or the blades does not cut well.

    Overall I am very pleased with the Arc5. It gives me precise shave and the battery life is very good. I am disappointed with the side burn trimmer, but overall very happy with the Arc5.

    Stunning design, great results

    Design:

    ________________________

    This shaver has stunning design, it looks like shaver from the future. Feels very good in the hand and back side of the handle has texture to improve grip and help avoid accidental / slippery drops. Device has 5 replaceable shaving blades which are doing great job, and flexible head which is designed for both efficacy and comfort. Backside of the head has adjustable pop up trimmer blade and front has beautiful display which shows LED percentage (in increment of 20) of the battery charge.

    Experience:

    _____________________

    I have really strong beard which sometimes I let grow little bit but this shaver did great job and provided clean cut and pleasant shaving. On some spots I had to use pop up trimmer (chin and parts of the neck) but results were surprisingly good. Most of the time I use razor but with this shaver I will definitely start skipping razor’s more than ever before. Definitely great shaver, if it can shave my hard brush beard, it will work for anyone else. I love it.

    Features:

    ____________________

    First I want to mention that device works on both 110 and 240 volts which makes this great for (international) travel because it will work everywhere in the world. Also it comes with travel case, small double sided cleaning brush and bottle of cleaning oil. Device has travel lock switch to prevent accidental running in the case or bag, and this could be activated by pressing power switch in sequence (press / release, press and hold for 2 seconds). Shaver has sensor which automatically adjust the cutting power based on your beard thickness. Fast charge makes this device ready in minutes. Device can be used on dry or wet face and device itself is washable which makes cleaning effortless.

    Pros:

    Hypoallergenic Nickel-Free shaver

    First off this Shaver, along with ALL of Panasonic’s shavers use Nickel-Free Stainless Steel for both the blades and foils, a huge plus for people with Nickel allergies. Shaver is great and gets a close shave. It does get a little warm after a couple of minutes of use so I’d start with your more sensitive areas first myself. I’d have given it 5-Stars except the pop-up trimmer is so sharp and close that I get really bad burn, so I’d recommend using a different trimmer unless you’re just touching up your sideburns. The build quality is really nice, the shaver is actually made in Japan. The travel lock function for the power button is convenient and the digital display gives it a very modern touch. I’ve only shaved dry with this shaver and I’m happy with the closeness of the shave. Down the road whenever it’s time to buy another electric shaver I’ll definitely be buying another Panasonic thanks to the hypoallergenic stainless steel materials.

    Pretty solid shaver

    The shaver seems pretty solid and all-around quality shaver. I prefer the horizontal shavers as opposed to the circular ones. I think these shave a bit cleaner than the circular/triangular ones do. The package includes the basic things like a case, charger and some oil. Nice little package and will be great for traveling. This shaver also has a side trimmer.

    The head on this shaver is pretty loose compared to other ones I've had. It's a floating head so it's just a bit different than what some people might be used to. There is an option to lock the head in place too so there is that. Shaver cleans really nice and is easy to clean so that's always a bonus.

    Passable shave on 1 day growth; fails on 2-3 day

    This shaver gives a passable shave on 1 day growth and completely fails on 2-3 day growth.

    Full Disclosure: I received this product through Best Buy’s Tech Insider Network in exchange for an unbiased evaluation and review.

    I'm a shower shaver (I shave in the shower) and I had such high hopes for this Panasonic Arc5 Wet/Dry Rechargeable Electric Shaver, model ES-LV67. I was excited about receiving it and was looking forward to using it.

    I hate writing a negative review, but unfortunately, this shaver will only do a passable job for you if you shave everyday without fail. And when I say passable, I mean it's just okay, not really even good.

    If you skip a Saturday every now and then or skip a holiday, you will get an unsatisfactory shave on that two day growth come Sunday morning. I had neck stubble catching and pinching on shirt collars that actually hurt! My dear wife thought it was funny.

    Now for the worst...if you shave Friday morning and then skip shaving the entire weekend, on Monday morning this Panasonic shaver will fail you miserably on that three day growth. You won't even want to leave the house. See the two photos below of the results after me trying shave my three day growth with this shaver.

    You can also trust that I know how to shave having spent over 20 years in the U.S. military.

    If you were to find you could use this shaver enough to wear out the blades, you'd then get to purchase the replacement inner blade and outer foil set, that lists for $110.00 USD!

    I don't know what else to say. I am incredibly disappointed with this shaver and cannot recommend it to anyone.

    A Close, Smooth Shave Without the Irritation.

    The Philips Norelco Series 3000 wet/dry shaver provides a close, smooth shave without irritating the skin.

    The shaver itself takes about an hour to charge; I was able to use the shaver for approximately one whole week (at about fifteen to twenty-minute shaving intervals a day without charging). The battery life on this shaver is good, and the shaver has a nice LED indicator to let you know when the battery is full.

    The shaving heads are smooth, and they provided a delicate shave to my sensitive skin already (while shaving dry). When I used a shaving lotion on my face, I found that the shaver provided a smoother shave. Again, I have to stress that my sensitive skin had no irritation. However, the included trimmer is the reason why I deducted one-star from this shaver.

    While I have some stubble on my face (one could argue a constant "five o'clock shadow for style), I find that trimming down the stubble with the trimmer causes the hairs to pull. Which, overall, takes away from the already delicate experience that I do not take for granted. My old Philips Norelco shaver, however, it too has an included trimmer, and the trimming speed does a better job at trimming stubble without pinching/pulling. I almost want to say that the speed of the trimmer should be upgraded to trim facial stubble (that is my guess as to why the trimmer is lackluster compared to the shaving heads).

    Cleaning the shaver is easy, as all you have to do is press the eject button on the front of the shaver, empty the hairs into your sink, and rinse the shaver out underneath the running water. I would not recommend dunking the shaver in water, though.

    Overall, the Philips Norelco Series 3000 is an excellent wet/dry shaver for those with sensitive skin, and it shines when you provide a light dab of shaving lotion to your face pre-shave. Where the Norelco Series 3000 falls short for me is the included trimming head. When trimming facial stubble (though it does trim sideburns and hairs around the other parts of your face), it pulls/pinches the hair on your face to a point where it becomes uncomfortable to whoever is using it.

    CLEAN, CLOSE AND COMFORTABLE SHAVES

    I have been using Norelco rotary shavers for approximately 25 - 30 years. My first Norelco was a gift from my son who heard me complain about repeatedly wearing out the foil screens of my prior favorite shaver models.

    The initial transition from blades or other electric shavers to a Norelco rotary shaver requires allowing your facial skin and beard to acclimate to the more aggressive, rotary cutting action. Norelco’s User Manuals advise new users of rotary shavers about the typical adjustment period. The best method is to use an extremely light touch, the minimum amount of pressure and to keep the shaver in motion over the skin. After several days of acclimation, you receive excellent, comfortable shaves. Norelco recommends a 21 day acclimation period.

    Once you try a Norelco rotary shaver you become a lifelong Norelco user. The two fundamental reasons are 1) Norelco rotary shavers give the closest, cleanest, quickest and most comfortable shaves, and 2) Norelco rotary shavers are typically extremely durable and reliable, and have exceptional longevity.

    I have a heavy, tough beard, yet my Norelco shavers typically last for many years. The typical reason that they ultimately require replacement, is that the rechargeable battery finally wears out and will fail to hold a charge. Performing for years of daily use, and it is only the battery that wears out, is a testament to the quality and reliability of Norelco shavers. I find that the cutting blades, which are replaceable, have been of such excellent quality that they remain sharp and effective and comfortable for many years, even with my tough, heavy, wiry beard.

    The Norelco Model S3134/84 (3000 Series) is my preferred style of Norelco shaver, incorporating the best Norelco features for performance and functionality. It is a triple, floating head shaver with pop-up trimmer. The three floating heads, which are in a flexible mount, provide an exceptionally close and comfortable shave, every time. This articulating cutting head design follows and conforms well to the contours of the face which really facilitates good, close shaves which are very comfortable. Norelco now labels those features as “5D Pivot and Flex Heads”. The pop-up trimmer is excellent for side burns, moustache and the rear of the neck, at the hairline. The shape and contour of the shaver, which is the traditional, legacy “hockey stick” shape, coupled with the partially textured, rubberized over-molded case, provides for a good, comfortable and natural grip with excellent control.

    This new Norelco S3134 shaver is providing the same comfortable and clean shave that I have always received from my prior Norelco shavers. It cuts clean and fast, and I never receive a razor burn.

    Cleaning is easy with the pop-open top which facilitates access to remove the accumulated shaving clippings. No cleaning brush is included, although one has been included with prior Norelco shavers.

    The Norelco S3134 shaver is a wet or dry shave model, although it is not submersible. I have never wet shaved with an electric shaver, nor do I intend to. Among the reasons for abandoning blade razors and shaving cream decades ago, was the convenience and comfort of dry, electric shaving. Periodic thorough cleaning by rinsing the cutting heads and drive pinion area under running water restores a like-new cleanliness and efficiency.

    The Norelco S3134 rotary shaver is an economy model, which nevertheless performs just as efficiently and effectively as its more expensive brethren.

    The cutting heads have only a single row of cutting blades, rather than multiple rows of blades as better models do. It is reasonable to presume that more blades will cut faster, more efficiently and more effectively than only 27 blades (and probably last longer, as well). The cleaning brush is omitted. The features and functionality are relatively basic without bells, whistles, Bluetooth or smartphone apps. Nevertheless, the Norelco S3134 includes the most important features, and its performance is very good, providing, close, clean and comfortable shaves.

    The Norelco S3134 includes the most important and desirable Norelco features comprised of three floating heads, mounted in flexing mounting rings on a pivoting head, pop-up trimmer and Li-Ion rechargeable battery.

    A single LED diode is located directly below the switch to indicate when the battery is depleted, when it is charging and when charging is complete. The LED flashes orange when the battery has approximately 15 or fewer minutes of operating capacity remaining. It flashes white when charging and switches to solid white when the charge cycle is complete. Because this is a wet/dry model, it cannot be operated when connected to the A/C charger. To avoid the inconvenience of running out of charge mid-shave and waiting for it to recharge to resume shaving, the Norelco S3134 shaver includes a “quick charge” feature which will accommodate one shave after a rapid, five minute recharge. A full charge requires approximately one hour. The printed User Manual included with the shaver states that a fully charged shaver will provide approximately 60 minutes of operational shaving use. However, the product box states that the shaver has a 50 minute run time. One of those declarations might be correct. I believe that the box is accurate, since the same User Manual is used for at least four different model variants. Perhaps this model has a smaller Li-Ion battery than the other, similar models. The low battery warning of a flashing orange LED helps to prevent running out of charge mid-shave.

    Also included is a plastic protective cap for the cutting heads. However, just as this model does not include a small cleaning brush for the heads, the Norelco S3134 also does not include any type of case or pouch. This is the only Norelco shaver I have ever had which did not come with some sort of case or at least a pouch. Most came with molded, zippered cases which are compact and protective. The lack of any type of case is both inconvenient and impractical, both when home and when travelling.

    Based on decades of prior experience, I am hopeful that this model will be as durable, reliable and long-lasting as most of my prior Norelco shavers. The Norelco S3134 is not manufactured in the Netherlands. This model is manufactured in Indonesia. Based on the good performance of the Norelco S3134 thus far, I recommend the Norelco S3134 rotary shaver.

    Getting Back to (Updated) Basics for Closer Shaves

    The Philips Norelco S3134 wet/dry shaver is the latest entry by Philips in a new generation of consumer personal care products. It incorporates a number of important advancements in shaving technology designed to provide an ideal balance of close shaves and sensitive skin care at a very reasonable cost.

    Norelco shavers are manufactured by Philips North America (the tradename Norelco comes from North American Philips electrical Company.) which is a unit of Koninklijke Philips N.V. , a $20 billion Dutch electronics, lighting and medical products company founded in 1891. Among its best-known consumer products are Norelco grooming devices, Sonicare oral health products, Magnavox & Philips audio and video products, Philips kitchen appliances and personal healthcare.

    Here is a summary of the key features:

    • Model: Philips Norelco S3134/84

    • 27 self-sharpening Comfort Cut blades designed to minimize tugging and the need for multiple passes, gently cut hair just above skin level

    • Five-direction flexible heads pivot, flex and float to follow facial contours without the need for pressure, minimizing stress on skin

    • Shaves dry or wet, using water, soap, shaving foam or gel

    • Waterproof, may be used in shower

    • Fully washable, one touch to flip open shaver head for easy cleaning

    • Pop-up precision trimmer for mustache, sideburns, eyebrows

    • Up to 105 minutes of cordless shaving time, lithium ion battery is fully charged in 68 minutes

    • 15 volt, 5.4 watt/360 mA charger

    • Shaver Dimensions: 6.2 inch height, 2.4 inch depth, 2.3 inch width; Weight: 7 ounces

    • 45 day trial/refund period, two year warranty on parts and labor,

    I have used Norelco and other premium quality electric shavers for many years so I know what to expect and demand. I own two other Norelco shavers, a two year old S7940 and a twelve year old 9160 XL. Both of these were the top-of-the-line model when purchased and have given me flawless service. See my photo comparisons of these three shavers.

    Norelco currently offers two core designs in its shavers. The more expensive 5000/7000/9000 series are slimmer and have a “mushroom” head which sit above the body of the shaver and thus have more flexibility to conform to your face. The other design is seen in the more basic and economical 1000/2000/3000 series which have a flatter head design.

    Like all Norelco shavers the S3134 is elegantly styled and very ergonomic. It is a nice combination of steel blue and black. It is lightweight, but feels substantial in your hand. There is rubberized grip material where your index finger and thumb would grasp the shaver and your remaining three fingers cradle the sides of the shaver’s body. It is a bit longer than my 9160 Norelco and a bit lighter. Compared to the 7940 it is wider and slightly heavier. On the front of the shaver is the power button and a single LCD icon which lights when charging or to indicate (in orange) that the battery life is low.

    The reason I added this shaver to my collection is that I have the feeling that my trusty 9160 is nearing retirement age. I like having two shavers available and the flatter head shape of the 9160 and the 3134 work well with parts of my face, while the “mushroom” shape of the 7940 head is best for other parts of my face.

    One significant difference between the three Norelco shavers I own is the number of blades in the three rotary heads. See my photos which show the cutting heads and blades of the three shavers. The oldest model (9160) has three rings of blades (12 in the outer ring, 6 in the middle ring and 3 in the inner ring.) That is a total of 21 blades in each head (63 total.) The S7940 shaver has a double ring of blades (15 in the outer ring and 9 in the inner ring.) That is a total of 24 blades in each head (72 total.) The S3134 shaver has only 9 blades in each head (27 total.)

    What is the effect of more vs. fewer blades? The advantage of more blades is a faster and closer shave. However, the chance of developing an ingrown hair is greater with the 7940 model since its 72 total blades cut very closely compared to the 27 more widely spaced blades of the 3134 model. If you have a tendency to develop razor bumps on your skin you may find that the 3134 is a better choice.

    The battery life on this shaver is actually much greater than the 50 minutes claimed by Norelco. I tested it by running it continuously from a fully-charged state and it lasted 121 minutes! Now it should be noted that this was not actual shaving time, so I estimate that actual shaving time would be about 100+ minutes. Recharge time from a fully-discharged state was 68 minutes.

    Other notes about the charging system: The orange low-charge warning light activated with 5.5 minutes of running time remaining. A five minute quick charge gave 9.5 minutes of shaving time. The shaver cannot be run while the charging cable is attached (this is to prevent electric hazards.)

    The plastic head cover fits snugly and will give your shaver adequate protection when traveling. Note that no travel pouch is included (the Best Buy overview of what’s included is incorrect.)

    So how well does it work? Very well! The shaving function is effective and very comfortable. It is quiet (no loud buzz like some electric shavers) and it removed every trace of my stubble with absolutely no irritation to my skin. The “5D” flex and pivot motion really works well to reach every part of your face. The pop-out trimmer is effective (although not as good as the separate trimmer head provided on the 5000/7000/9000 Norelco shavers.)

    I used the shaver in both dry and wet modes and it worked flawlessly. Cleaning is very simple – just pop open the head and rinse it under warm water. If you are converting from a manual (blade) razor you will really appreciate the luxury of continuing to use your favorite shaving cream when you use this great device.

    I am accustomed to very good shavers and the S3134 certainly meets my high standards. Is it the best shaver you can buy from Norelco? No – if your budget can accommodate the higher cost of a 7000 series Norelco shaver (about twice the cost of the S3134) – you should invest in that model.

    But if razor bumps are a problem you have experienced or you just wish to economize, the Norelco S3134 wet/dry shaver is an excellent choice and I give it a full five stars.

    CLEAN, CLOSE AND COMFORTABLE SHAVES

    I have been using Norelco rotary shavers for approximately 25 - 30 years. My first Norelco was a gift from my son who heard me complain about repeatedly wearing out the foil screens of my prior favorite shaver models.

    The initial transition from blades or other electric shavers to a Norelco rotary shaver requires allowing your facial skin and beard to acclimate to the more aggressive, rotary cutting action. Norelco’s User Manuals advise new users of rotary shavers about the typical adjustment period. The best method is to use an extremely light touch, the minimum amount of pressure and to keep the shaver in motion over the skin. After several days of acclimation, you receive excellent, comfortable shaves. Norelco recommends a 21 day acclimation period.

    Once you try a Norelco rotary shaver you become a lifelong Norelco user. The two fundamental reasons are 1) Norelco rotary shavers give the closest, cleanest, quickest and most comfortable shaves, and 2) Norelco rotary shavers are typically extremely durable and reliable, and have exceptional longevity.

    I have a heavy, tough beard, yet my Norelco shavers typically last for many years. The reason that they ultimately require replacement, is that the rechargeable battery finally wears out and will fail to hold a charge. Performing for years of daily use, and it is only the battery that wears out, is a testament to the quality and reliability of Norelco shavers. I find that the cutting blades, which are replaceable, have been of such excellent quality that they remain sharp and effective and comfortable for many years, even with my tough, heavy, wiry beard.

    The Norelco Model 3134/84 (3000 Series) is my preferred style of Norelco shaver, incorporating the best Norelco features for performance and functionality. It is a triple, floating head shaver with pop-up trimmer. The three floating heads, which are in a flexible mount, provide an exceptionally close and comfortable shave, every time. This articulating cutting head design follows and conforms well to the contours of the face which really facilitates good, close shaves which are very comfortable. Norelco now labels those features as “5D Pivot and Flex Heads”. The pop-up trimmer is excellent for side burns, moustache and the rear of the neck, at the hairline. The shape and contour of the shaver, which is the traditional, legacy “hockey stick” shape, coupled with the partially textured, rubberized over-molded case, provides for a good, comfortable and natural grip with excellent control.

    This new Norelco 3134 shaver is providing the same comfortable and clean shave that I have always received from my prior Norelco shavers. It cuts clean and fast, and I never receive a razor burn.

    Cleaning is easy with the pop-open top which facilitates access to remove the accumulated shaving clippings. No cleaning brush is included, although one has been included with prior Norelco shavers.

    The Norelco 3134 shaver is a wet or dry shave model, although it is not submersible. I have never wet shaved with an electric shaver, nor do I intend to. Among the reasons for abandoning blade razors and shaving cream decades ago, was the convenience and comfort of dry, electric shaving. Periodic thorough cleaning by rinsing the cutting heads and drive pinion area under running water restores a like-new cleanliness and efficiency.

    The Norelco 3134 rotary shaver is a basic economy model, which nevertheless performs just as efficiently and effectively as its more expensive brethren.

    The cutting heads have only a single row of cutting blades, rather than multiple rows of blades as better models do. It is reasonable to presume that more blades will cut faster, more efficiently and more effectively than only 27 blades (and probably last longer, as well). The cleaning brush is omitted. The features and functionality are relatively basic without bells, whistles, Bluetooth or smartphone apps. Nevertheless, the Norelco 3134 includes the most important features, and its performance is very good, providing, close, clean and comfortable shaves.

    The Norelco 3134 includes the most important and desirable Norelco features comprised of three floating heads, mounted in flexing mounting rings on a pivoting head, pop-up trimmer and Li-Ion rechargeable battery.

    A single LED diode is located directly below the switch to indicate when the battery is depleted, when it is charging and when charging is complete. The LED flashes orange when the battery has approximately 15 or fewer minutes of operating capacity remaining. It flashes white when charging and switches to solid white when the charge cycle is complete. Because this is a wet/dry model, it cannot be operated when connected to the A/C charger. To avoid the inconvenience of running out of charge mid-shave and waiting for it to recharge to resume shaving, the Norelco 3134 shaver includes a “quick charge” feature which will accommodate one shave after a rapid, five minute recharge. A full charge requires approximately one hour. The printed User Manual included with the shaver states that a fully charged shaver will provide approximately 60 minutes of operational shaving use. However, the product box states that the shaver has a 50 minute run time. One of those declarations might be correct. I believe that the box is accurate, since the same User Manual is used for at least four different model variants. Perhaps this model has a smaller Li-Ion battery than the other, similar models. The low battery warning of a flashing orange LED helps to prevent running out of charge mid-shave.

    Also included is a plastic protective cap for the cutting heads. However, just as this model does not include a small cleaning brush for the heads, the Norelco 3134 also does not include any type of case or pouch. This is the only Norelco shaver I have ever had which did not come with some sort of case or at least a pouch. Most came with molded, zippered cases which are compact and protective. The lack of any type of case is both inconvenient and impractical, both when home and when travelling.

    Based on decades of prior experience, I am hopeful that this model will be as durable, reliable and long-lasting as most of my prior Norelco shavers. The Norelco 3134 is not manufactured in the Netherlands. This model is manufactured in Indonesia. Based on the good performance of the Norelco 3134 thus far, I recommend the Norelco 3134 rotary shaver.

    Countoured shaving done right!

    The Philips Norelco Shaver Series 300 was a joy to use after coming from a straight edge electric shaver. The other shaver would present issues when getting around the corners of my face and around my chin but that is not the case with the Philips as the contoured movement of the shaving heads makes it super simple to tend to the edges of your face. It's also very easy to clean and has a replaceable blade that you can get from Philips directly when it's time for a new blade. There is a pop out straight edge shaver that makes it convenient to line up parts of your hair and the included charger was easy to use as well. I really appreciate the water proof design around the shaving head as I did not feel like I had to baby the shaver and I was left to focus on the shave. Overall I'm very happy with the Philips Norelco Shaver Series 300 and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a great shave whether it is a dry or wet shave!

    Good Shaver with Wet/Dry Capability

    I've always been an electric razor guy and have been using them for over 20 years now. This one does the job as well or better than any of the others I have used.

    Battery life is good and you will not need to charge it too often. The shave provided is fairly close, as you would expect with an electric razor. Not nearly as close as a manual razor, but good enough for me!

    Cleaning is a snap, as this model allows for being run under the faucet to rinse it out. I am used to using brushes to clean out the trimmings so it was nice to not have to do that. Note that this model does not come with a brush so if you do prefer to dry clean, you will need to supply your own.

    One of the features I really enjoyed with this electric razor is the pivoting head (pictured). It shifts to match your angle of pressure while shaving very nicely. Overall, this is an excellent razor to consider if you are in the market for one.

    Smooth and Comfortable Shave

    I have owned several brands throughout my lifetime and Norelco has always been my favorite. The floating heads and non-abrasive shave leaves my face smooth and feeling great after each shave. This razor is no exception.

    I think that Norelco has improved the flexibility with this model as it seems to float and contour better to my face than others in the past. The blades are comfortable, yet they get close enough to feel like a straight edge razor.

    I was apprehensive to try this with gel, but it worked as advertised. If you prefer a wet shave, this will work great for you. I don’t see the need for the gel or shaving cream, as this is already smooth and will not dry out your skin. There is extra cleanup needed if you use gel or shaving cream, but it rinses quickly and easily with warm water.

    This will charge enough after just five minutes to give you a quick shave and will charge completely in a very short period of time to give you close to an hour without running out of battery power.

    The pop up trimmer works great for sideburns and trimming my beard.

    This is another quality product from Norelco and I highly recommend it. I have a fairly delicate face and this doesn’t bother it in the least.

    Ergonomic budget shaver

    I have use electric shavers before and this is one of the smooth and quiet ones. There are days when I do not feel like shaving, but want to have a close shave look. The shaver itself is light and the rubber grip is very comforable when holding. It takes about an hour to charge and provides upto an hour of usage. You can do a 5 minute charge for a quick shave. There are 27 self-sharpening blades (9 in each head) for clean shaving. The best part is you can use it wet or dry. The shaver head has 5D pivot design that conforms to your neck and face. The included pouch is an added bonus and comes in handy for storage and travel. If you are in the market for an everyday shaver at a I definitely recommend this ergonomic budget shaver.

    Close shave, better than expected

    I hate shaving because I always seem to either cut above my lip,or I end up with several in grown hair. I’ve always been wary of electric razors but decided to give this a chance. I am very pleased with this device and have tried it out for a few weeks now.

    Pros:

    -precise shave. It gets clean to the skin without any cuts on my face due to the 5 blades that give me a nice smooth movement.

    -noise: it’s quiet which I like a lot. I was afraid it would be too loud in the morning when my family is asleep, but there is a nice soft sound that is not too loud.

    -movement: it moves along my chin and mouth area very nicely. There is a very loose pivot joint that allows it to navigate your face in smooth motions.

    -battery life. When first opened and powered on, the Digital display indicates you have about 30% charged. After about an hour of charging I was at full power. It’s been over a week and I’ll use it every morning and the battery life is at 80%.

    -traveling pouch. Nice little leather-like pouch addition to store it in.

    Cons:

    -size: it’s somewhat bulky for my hand, can get a little uncomfortable. It’s not too heavy but feels awkward in my hand.

    -sideburn trimmer: this doesn’t get a clean cut to my sideburns due to the position of the head. When you pop out the trimmer, the head is now locked where it will not move. But the trimmer is either too short or the blades does not cut well.

    Overall I am very pleased with the Arc5. It gives me precise shave and the battery life is very good. I am disappointed with the side burn trimmer, but overall very happy with the Arc5.

    Stunning design, great results

    Design:

    ________________________

    This shaver has stunning design, it looks like shaver from the future. Feels very good in the hand and back side of the handle has texture to improve grip and help avoid accidental / slippery drops. Device has 5 replaceable shaving blades which are doing great job, and flexible head which is designed for both efficacy and comfort. Backside of the head has adjustable pop up trimmer blade and front has beautiful display which shows LED percentage (in increment of 20) of the battery charge.

    Experience:

    _____________________

    I have really strong beard which sometimes I let grow little bit but this shaver did great job and provided clean cut and pleasant shaving. On some spots I had to use pop up trimmer (chin and parts of the neck) but results were surprisingly good. Most of the time I use razor but with this shaver I will definitely start skipping razor’s more than ever before. Definitely great shaver, if it can shave my hard brush beard, it will work for anyone else. I love it.

    Features:

    ____________________

    First I want to mention that device works on both 110 and 240 volts which makes this great for (international) travel because it will work everywhere in the world. Also it comes with travel case, small double sided cleaning brush and bottle of cleaning oil. Device has travel lock switch to prevent accidental running in the case or bag, and this could be activated by pressing power switch in sequence (press / release, press and hold for 2 seconds). Shaver has sensor which automatically adjust the cutting power based on your beard thickness. Fast charge makes this device ready in minutes. Device can be used on dry or wet face and device itself is washable which makes cleaning effortless.

    Pros:

    Hypoallergenic Nickel-Free shaver

    First off this Shaver, along with ALL of Panasonic’s shavers use Nickel-Free Stainless Steel for both the blades and foils, a huge plus for people with Nickel allergies. Shaver is great and gets a close shave. It does get a little warm after a couple of minutes of use so I’d start with your more sensitive areas first myself. I’d have given it 5-Stars except the pop-up trimmer is so sharp and close that I get really bad burn, so I’d recommend using a different trimmer unless you’re just touching up your sideburns. The build quality is really nice, the shaver is actually made in Japan. The travel lock function for the power button is convenient and the digital display gives it a very modern touch. I’ve only shaved dry with this shaver and I’m happy with the closeness of the shave. Down the road whenever it’s time to buy another electric shaver I’ll definitely be buying another Panasonic thanks to the hypoallergenic stainless steel materials.

    Pretty solid shaver

    The shaver seems pretty solid and all-around quality shaver. I prefer the horizontal shavers as opposed to the circular ones. I think these shave a bit cleaner than the circular/triangular ones do. The package includes the basic things like a case, charger and some oil. Nice little package and will be great for traveling. This shaver also has a side trimmer.

    The head on this shaver is pretty loose compared to other ones I've had. It's a floating head so it's just a bit different than what some people might be used to. There is an option to lock the head in place too so there is that. Shaver cleans really nice and is easy to clean so that's always a bonus.

    Passable shave on 1 day growth; fails on 2-3 day

    This shaver gives a passable shave on 1 day growth and completely fails on 2-3 day growth.

    Full Disclosure: I received this product through Best Buy’s Tech Insider Network in exchange for an unbiased evaluation and review.

    I'm a shower shaver (I shave in the shower) and I had such high hopes for this Panasonic Arc5 Wet/Dry Rechargeable Electric Shaver, model ES-LV67. I was excited about receiving it and was looking forward to using it.

    I hate writing a negative review, but unfortunately, this shaver will only do a passable job for you if you shave everyday without fail. And when I say passable, I mean it's just okay, not really even good.

    If you skip a Saturday every now and then or skip a holiday, you will get an unsatisfactory shave on that two day growth come Sunday morning. I had neck stubble catching and pinching on shirt collars that actually hurt! My dear wife thought it was funny.

    Now for the worst...if you shave Friday morning and then skip shaving the entire weekend, on Monday morning this Panasonic shaver will fail you miserably on that three day growth. You won't even want to leave the house. See the two photos below of the results after me trying shave my three day growth with this shaver.

    You can also trust that I know how to shave having spent over 20 years in the U.S. military.

    If you were to find you could use this shaver enough to wear out the blades, you'd then get to purchase the replacement inner blade and outer foil set, that lists for $110.00 USD!

    I don't know what else to say. I am incredibly disappointed with this shaver and cannot recommend it to anyone.

    Great shave, high maintenance

    Pros - Excellent razor. Closest shave I have ever had. Fast and easy shave due to excellent blades. Cons - Requires a bit of maintenance. You need to run the “cleaning program” every day (personally I do it every other day). Some water and a cleaning solution shoots up into the case and cleans the razor once activated (1 pack of solution is provided for one month - available on Amazon sold as a pack for a reasonable price). This seemed like a bit of a pain at first, especially changing the solution every month, but the razor looks brand new and is working like it was just out of box many months later, so I think it’s worth it. Note - the first ten minutes of the cleaning process are VERY NOISY. The last 60 or so of the drying process aren’t too bad. Don’t expect to clean this razor before you head off to work if your partner is within 25 yards. It’s like waking up to someone vacuuming your pillow.

    A Great Razor and a Great Shave

    The Panasonic Arc 5 Wet/Dry Electric Shaver with Self-cleaning recharger is outstanding. I've used safety razors for years and decided to try and electric. The Panasonic was the best choice!! If you've been using blades it takes around a month for your face to adapt to an electric but after that time using the electric is great!! Especially with the Self-cleaning recharger. It keeps your razor clean and charged so you always get a great shave. Be sure you read all the instructions so you can get the most from your razor.

    Head Shaver

    I bought this primarily for my head! And wow it did not disappoint! It is as close as a razor! with none of the mess and clean up. I would describe my hair as very fine, and I'm also not fully balding. This may work differently with different types of hair? For me... PERFECT and exactly what I was looking for. DO not even hesitate. I read reviews that The Rock uses the Braun series 9, but did exhaustive research and found the Arc5 cuts even closer.

    So my Braun cleaner base stopped working again. SECOND one traded at a retailer that use to take things back if you had any issue. They stopped doing that. So went online and utube. Found panasonic is rated the best mens electric shaver. Best Buy had it and was cheaper than other places.

    Very happy I spent the money to get it. . Shave time cut in half and a much better shave. Skin feels very soft after the shave. No spots of any uncut hairs. The old braun 10 I had left some, If I didn't take the extra time for multiple passes. I had a Phillips it was so cheap the heads would not stay in place. That's why I went to the Braun

    It's very quite. Much less motor noise than any other razor I have used. The cleaner base runs quit also. Cleaner base is better than the Braun. Plus no plastic cleaner cartridge to throw away. Just clean and refill.

    I wish I would found out about panasonic mens razors many years back.

    Why did I wait so long?

    I've been eyeballing these shavers for a while and I finally got one a few weeks ago. This is shaver is amazing! I actually got what feels to be a closer shave with the Arc5 over my Gillette Fusion and my safety razor and a WAAAAAY better shave over my Norelco rotary. It's comfortable to in the hand and on the face. The cleaning/charging base is AWESOME! If you're lazy like me, this is a must! The razor get almost spotless with the cleaning function. Waaaay better than using those little brushes. Only complaint is it's a bit loud when cleaning. I ended up putting some foam padding under the base to dampen the vibration noises. Other than that, I highly recommend this!

    Best Electric Shaver ever

    Great item. My husband loves the self cleaning system and also the option of adding hand soap on the outer foil with a little water and then turning on the shaver for a few seconds to create a lather.

    Panasonic Saver

    The Panasonic Electric Razor gives you a excellent shave and love everything about it except for the on/off button. When you ar shaving it is very easy to touch it shutting the shaver off. I was also missing the cleaning brush and called Panasonic to replace it. They told me I had to take the kit back to the the Best buy and exchange it for whole new shaver kit. Which I felt was wrong and decided not to do.

    This shaver is awesome

    Decided to try this after using the braun for many years. I can't believe it took me this long! What a difference. Shave is much closer than my old braun. Battery life is good. Never going back to braun given how happy I am with this Panasonic.

    I have been a big fan of Duke Cannon products for a long time, and this is the first time I purchased this shaving aloe on your Deal of the Day. I am very pleased with how the shaving aloe feels on my skin and the thickness of the lather along with the pleasant scent, It really makes waking up and shaving my head in the morning not just a job, but something I look forward to doing.

    Less expensive Duke Cannon shaving item!

    The Duke cannon shave gel is good the shave lotion is the best but if you catch this on sale good gel to save a few bucks and still get the hydration and cleaner shave. The lotion is better and thicker but a few bucks more. Depending on skin sensitivity might be worth the extra 5 bucks for a cleaner more hydrating shave. Try Duke cannon stuff the soap is also fantastic!

    Great even for the delicate sack skin

    I like this razor a lot. I got this razor for my sack and as long as you are careful and use the blade in the orientation is was intended you will not cut yourself but if you do cut yourself it won't be as bad as some other clippers. I would post pics but this isn't that type of website.

    Best body shaver, but needs more length options.

    It's an excellent body shaver, best I've used. The only thing I wish it had is a length trimmer guard for more sizes than just their two. The larger one is too inconsistent to shave well and the short one leaves my hair just a bit too prickly for my tastes.

    Great vacation shaver

    This shaver is designed for a person with smaller hands. When using it I keep hitting the power button turning the shaver off. The power button could be placed lower, also the trimmer was difficult to use the design makes it hard to see where you are trying to edge. In closing the mother could use a bit more power or an additional 2 stage motor. But if you are going on a trip or have a smaller hand size this shaver should work for you.

    Convenient, Comfortable Shaver /w Pop up trimmer

    Norelco Series 5000 (S5588)

    I have owned several Norelco shavers over the years. They keep getting better! This model is not super expensive yet it is now my favorite.

    PROS: Cordless, can be used wet, dry or in the shower (IPX7). It shaves smooth and close, very comfortable shave. Nice floating heads to conform to your face. It’s easy to flip open the top for cleaning the shaver heads under water. Best ever cover for the floating heads if you travel because it stays on! Has a built in pop-up trimmer that is always there when needed. Led Bar Graph on the handle to tell you its charge at any time. Great rubber grips that make it secure in your hand. And it’s not too small or too large to hold, just a great feel as you hold it.

    CONS: None I can find. I really like this shaver!

    I would definitely recommend this model to anyone that doesn’t want to spend a lot of money yet get a great shaver with useful features.

    Love it! Upgraded from the Series 1000

    After daily driving the Norelco 1000 from 2019 for a year, I decided to try the new 2020 Series 5000 as an upgrade.

    Man oh man, while shaving, it just feels soooooo much smoother and I noticed that I spend a lot less time going over the same spots over and over to make sure to get all the stubbles hit. The head and blades make sure to contour to the shape of your head/face to give you the best shave possible. Very comfortable and have had no cutting or pinching episodes. The tri head shape makes sure it can reach every little place on your face and not nick you.

    I highly recommend the razor. Quick charging, nice battery level indicator, super easy to clean and IPX7 rated! Dry or wet shaving is no match for this baby. You can even use it while showering and even the instruction booklet recommends doing it.

    One thing I noticed was that the edger is 10000x better than the previous model I've been using and makes a nice, perfect straight edge. Comes with a little brush to make the easy cleaning even easier if you wish to use it.

    Highly recommend to anyone looking at this shaver. You can't go wrong.

    Entry level basic shaver for finer hair.

    Philips Norelco Shaver 5300

    Summary:

    Lightweight shaver with a typical hand-held form factor.

    Pros:

    * Light. The unit is light. The lack of weight may have been a compromise for something else, however.

    * It looks nice. The aesthetic is svelt, surely. However, the overall design isn't too unchanged from others of this type.

    * It feels well assembled which is good for a wet/dry unit.

    * Price. The price point is fine. Though for the reasons listed below, I'll admit I'm still a little disappointed in its performance.

    Cons:

    * Not enough power. It's a handheld battery unit. What should I expect? More power than my Philips Norelco it is replacing after more than a decade, that's for sure. I trim with a Braun and then expected to clean up closer with this unit. It doesn't seem to do well even with leftover stubble. My hair may be too coarse for the screens, or there isn't enough power. Even fully charged, turning it on seems like a chore for the unit.

    Use:

    I like to clean up with this type of shaver after lawn mowing my face with a sturdier but less precise shaver. I'm disappointed this doesn't seem to have the right power or isn't built for coarse hair. I'm not comfortable pressing this thing against my neck or face just to get the desired result. I think I will need to find a corded version for more power.

    I'm generally a fan of Philips products. I own a Sonicare Toothbrush and like a 10-year-old version of this shaver. They work quite well, though the shaver is looking worse for its wear and the charging cord has become frayed. This unit is a miss for me, but probably a good buy for someone with less challenging facial hair.

    Awesome and quiet razor!

    There were three models, each one a different speed, and each one a different price. I picked the middle one, not too expensive, but not the bottom of the line. First razor I've ever had that takes the hair all the way down without cutting my skin, nor pulling out the hair so it's below the skin and causing shaving bumps as the hair grows back out. I love it! Do wish, sometimes, I had opted for the next higher speed just to get the job done quicker, but this is doing just great! I've had this for a few weeks now and it hasn't let me down yet. I would recommend this to anybody!

    Best shave going.

    The Norelco clean & charge wet/dry shaver gives me a smooth, and close shave. I not only use it to shave my face, but I also shave my head. The shaver does an outstanding job of shaving from cleaning up a 5 o'clock shadow to two days worth of growth.

    The cleaning system that comes with the shaver is an excellent way to preserve the heads, plus it removes oil and grime on the heads.

    I would highly recommend this shaver.

    I have always used Norelco, but this is the first time I am using a shaver with free floating tripleheader cutters. This is a definite BIG step up and the best shaver I have used until now. The additional feature of the 3 comfort settings is nice. Cleaning reminder is a help. Opening up the hair chamber to wash is very easy. The cleaning system is slick!!!

    How do you get this thing open?

    This gives a pretty good shave, but honestly it is not as good as the shave I used to get from my 15 year old Philips Norelco that wore out finally. The head on this razor seems to have a bit of unintentional wobble in it (besides the natural movement to fit the contours of the face). A good point is that you can keep it VERY clean with minimal trouble. It is easy to pop the head off but a pain to get it pulled apart for cleaning in a water stream. It's very quiet and the heads seem to have a good deal of play in them. Only time will tell.

    Great razor!

    I've owned many Norelco's over the years but this is by far the best I've ever used. It is expensive but the quality is amazing. When you turn this on there's actually torque that you can feel as it spins up. That's how powerful this thing is. The cleaning bay is absolutely the bomb. You just touch the power button after replacing it in the holder and it automatically cleans and then dries the head. The next morning you start with a brand new (looking) razor. I love it!

    Premium shaver, premium price

    I've been using this shaver for a couple of weeks now. It is way better than the entry level Philips Norelco ($35 Best Buy Black Friday deal) I bought a few years ago. It shaves closer, faster (less passes needed), and doesn't irritate my neck like the entry level one. It is pretty expensive, but I bought it on sale and used gift cards. I have yet to use the cleaning base because I do not have an outlet that is accessible near my bathroom sink.

    I don't like that the shaver head detaches completely from the razor to put the trimmer head on and that the parts that secure the two pieces are plastic. I have read that this can become an issue in a short amount of time, especially considering the premium price of this shaver.

    Nice Upgrade from my old 3000 Series

    I picked this up to replace my older 3000 series. It was getting a little bit older and when I looked at the cost of picking up new blades compared to what I'd get by picking up a new razor, it was a no-brainer.

    The biggest draw to this newer version was the rapid charge feature. As a safety precaution, Philips disables the ability to use their razors while they charge. This isn't a problem if you remember to charge them every so often, but if you don't remember to charge them regularly, then it can be a pain.

    The new S3212 will give you 60-minutes of shaving off of a single hour of charging, so more than enough to handle my morning shave. It is also safe to use in the shower like my older 3000 series, but with my facial hair, I usually have to shave it dry, otherwise, my beard and mustache hair will stick to my face.

    They've also added a newer feature called 5D Pivot & Flex Heads - I've noticed the head is a bit different shape compared to my older 3000 series and so far, it does seem like it's just as comfortable, if not more responsive than my older one.

    If you're someone who can use an electric razor and are in the market for a new one, this one is a good deal at less than $100.

    Great battery life and easy to clean!

    This is by far one of the bet shavers I have ever used! The three 5D cutting heads make for a clean, close, and comfortable shave that gets about as close to a razor cut as you can without using a razor. The unit is fully compatible and comfortable with dry and wet shaving, the latter making for an incredibly close and soothing shave. No worries about razor burn or cuts, especially when paired with your favorite shaving cream! The battery is rate for up to 60 minutes, more than enough for multiple days of shaves off one charge! There is also a quick charge feature that allows enough for a shave off just a few minutes of charging and the battery hits a full charge in about an hour, too! Though not designed specifically for it, the shaver also works great for touch ups on a bald head!

    I would highly recommend this shaver for anyone looking for a comfortable daily shaver with a battery that lasts you the whole week.

    All that matters: My wife totally approves.

    Philips Norelco Shaver 3500 S3212/82

    I’ve come back to Norelco rotary pivot head shavers in this past few years. I’ve already owned the top-of-the-line for approximately a year now and it’s become my favorite, ever. In fact, I like it so much, I’m reluctant to drag it around on my occasional travels. Yes, it’s portable, but I don’t want to beat it up in my luggage. So, this Norelco 3500 is my experiment on dropping down into a lower priced version while enjoying the great shaves these give me.

    What makes these rotary shavers so comfortable and smooth is the wet/dry feature. You will get a nice shave without any lubricant, but go light and slow. With a pre-shave lotion you can get a better shave, without any extra effort required. However, like I described after using their premiere model, using a sudsy or foaming lather on your face before shaving yields a super comfortable spa-treatment for your face. The shave is close but your face or neck or chin is left feeling like it’s been babied. I’m perfectly OK using all 3 approaches, but nothing compares with a Norelco shave in a shower with a sudsy shaving lotion.

    THE USEFUL STUFF:

    The pivoting heads keep everything comfortable, with minimal abrasion.

    The suggested 60 minutes of cordless shaving matches my first few uses.

    That 60 minutes of shaving requires 60 minutes of charging,

    Cleaning the heads is easy with the hinged, pop-open action.

    The rubberized grip makes using the shaver in the shower quite easy.

    There’s a light-weight cloth pouch for travel.

    The pop-up trimmer is OK, if slightly awkward to manipulate on your face.

    The rotary motor results in a quiet shaving ritual.

    CONS: Compared to the ultimate shaver in the Philips Norelco shaver, the rotary head doesn’t glide as easily. I think the slightly tighter layout of the head array contributes to this. Perhaps the shave isn’t quite as close. But, I’m comparing this modestly priced model to a $300 shaver, so I understand the value in this Model 3500. It’s why I own it.

    SUMMARY: I can’t discourage you from getting the premiere versions of the Norelco rotary shavers, but this Philips Norelco Shaver 3500 at a very reasonably price represents a great value. It closely matches my favorite wet-shave performance. It’s comfortable and leaves your face really smooth. My wife totally approves. I can tell by the way she volunteers to test the results.

    Great shaver

    Norelco Really is a top-of-the-line product it’s true that it only last about a year maybe a year and a half but that’s expected I know for a fact that they purposely overprice the blades so you’re forced to get a new one it’s kind of genius actually lol But I’m giving them five stars because the shaver is a really great the minute you put it to your face you feel the difference. I don’t mind buying a new one every year or every year and a half it’s definitely worth it

    A working shaver

    it causes hair to go off of your face. This is the purpose of the shaver, so it works. It also does not hurt too much. Recommended.

    Excellent upgrade or entry to electric shavers

    I really enjoyed this shaver! This was an upgrade for me from a straight edge. I was hesitant, but open to try it due to my shaking hands. Battery life is not an issue haven't had to charge it after 3 shaves. It is easy to clean due to the top popping off with two tabs being pushed. The sweet bonus for me was the trimmer part as shown in the pictures. I didn't know it had one until I got it, but it works marvelously on long hairs and for edging.

    Quick and easy shaver with no pulled hair!

    Panasonic's Arc3 shaver fit my needs perfectly in that it gave me a nice close shave with the ability to shave with wet or dry skin. The Arc 3 came with a charger, oil, foil protector and two trim attachments (that worked well for body grooming). I don't have coarse facial hair so your mileage may vary but this shaver didn't pull any of my hair during my shave sessions so I could press as hard as I needed and go as fast as I wanted without any worry of hair pulling pain. Cleaning was a breeze and the added oil container was nice to have to keep everything in working order. I'd definitely recommend the Arc 3 for anyone looking for a new shaver and I'm very happy that I added the Arc 3 to my regimen.

    Works but Not Perfect

    --- SETUP ---

    This Panasonic electric shaver can be fully charged in an hour with the unique included charger. The adapters, once you figure out where they go, are easy to put on and remove.

    --- FEATURES ---

    The key features of this shaver are the quick full time charge and that it can be used in wet or dry environments. It also has a trimmer with 2 adapters for trimming at various lengths.

    --- PERFORMANCE ---

    The shaver, at first use, was not as effective as I hoped it would be. I used shaving cream while shaving and it didn’t give me a clean shave. The trimmer, on the other hand, was fantastic. I used it to trim my sideburns and it did a good job. Then, I trimmed my beard with the second add-on adapter (5,6,7 levels). The trimmer is by far the best part of this electric shaver. See the picture for the difference. After the initial shave, I continued using it daily for upkeep and I find it ok for daily use, so long as I don’t let my beard grow for a full week, it can keep up.

    --- EXPECTATIONS ---

    The Panasonic shaver is just ok when compared to a regular 4-5 blade razor. I find a razor to be more efficient if your beard has grown close to an inch. If you plan on shaving daily after shaving with a razor, then this might work. However, the bulkiness of the electric shaver compared to a razor interfered with the part of my face that I was trying to shave, so I had to double-check I would accidentally shave more than I wanted. On the manual, to clean it, you are to add a little dab of soap and have running water go into the shaver while on to create a lather, then rinse. Doing so causes a large splatter because the shaver only has one setting. No brush is included to clean it for that reason.

    --- VALUE ---

    The price for the shaver is worth it if you plan on using it daily.

    --- APPROVAL ---

    I only recommend this product for people planning on up-keeping their beard daily since it will take you longer to shave if you only shave once a week.

    Simple Shaver with Great Results

    I’ve spent a few days thus far and I can’t find any reason not to recommend this shaver. My favorite features include its wet/dry capability as well as its ability to detect more resistance and increase power when needed. Not once did I ever feel discomfort from the main foil or the pop up trimmer. And it does its job very well.

    Some of the newer shavers have a base to self clean; I like that I can just pop the cover off and rinse the blades after each use, and that’s good enough for me. It comes with oil so you can keep the blades running smooth. If you use shaving cream or run it while in the shower, you probably will need to oil more often, I'm guessing. Just think, no need to purchase more cleaning cartridges, keeping this shaver economical long term.

    It has a streamlined design that feels comfortable in your hands and it’s not bulky to hold. A full change is about an hour, and run times are about 50 minutes ‘till empty. I charge it once a week so I don’t get caught off guard. YMMV, of course.

    Pretty good electric shaver

    I'll be honest. This is the first electric shaver I've owned in roughly 35 years as I've been using a razor and shaving cream. I've been using the Panasonic ARC3 for about a week now and while it could never compete with a razor and shaving cream for smoothness, it's nice to have on hand for a quick shave if going out and you don't want to go through the hassle of using the blade and shaving cream.

    I have average stubble I guess, and not heavy thick facial hair like many guys do, so I can't comment on that. But for your average guy like me, or someone with less than average facial hair, this Panasonic ARC3 electric razor will do a very nice job. You can also use it in the shower, but I have not tried that feature.

    The Panasonic ARC3 also has two attachments that are easily attached to the shaver so that you can trim your beard. Each attachment has 3 settings for hair length. the setting go from 1-3 mm (1/32 to 1/8) on one attachment, and the other goes from 5-7 mm (3/16 to 9/32). There is also an easy to use pop up trimmer that you open with just a flick of your thumb to trim your sideburns of mustache.

    A few other features of this shaver is an LED display that lets you know that it's on which seams weird, a battery logo that shows the battery life left. When fully charged, the battery led logo turns off. It takes about 1 hour to fully charge. If the battery happens to be dead, by charging for roughly 3 minutes, you get enough power for a quick shave. And a nice feature is that you can lock the shaver so it can't turn on. This feature would come in handy if your shaver is in a suitcase while traveling in case it were to accidentally get turned on with your suitcase being tossed around by baggage handlers at the airport or a bumpy plane ride.

    Also included in the box is a small bottle of oil, the two hair length attachments mentioned above and a 6' power cord. I was pretty surprised that the power cord was 6' and not something way shorter. heck, the power cord for my 5 blade Lasko fan is only 5'.

    And you also get a printed owners manual which I found surprising as most manuals are online now days. The manual is in English, Spanish and French. Just the English section is 21 pages. There is also a one sheet that shows you how to clean your shaver using liquid soap and water. A product registration card that you can mail or fill out online, and it comes with a 2 year warranty which is great. It seems most items come with just a 1 year warranty now. But 2 years could be 600 + shaves, so I find that to be a nice warranty.

    There are two things I wish the Panasonic ARC3 electric shaver came with though to bring my review up to 5 stars. One would be a carrying case of some sort so that you can have the shaver, 2 attachments, oil and charging cord all together instead of having them scattered in the drawer in your bathroom, or all over your suitcase. The other item that would have been terrific to have would have been a small brush to help remove all the hair from the blades. Blowing on the blades does help some to remove the hair. I don't recommend tapping the shaver on the side of the sink to remove the hair as that might damage the shaver. I use an old soft bristle toothbrush to do this and it works great.

    Overall, I highly recommend the Panasonic ARC 3 wet/dry electric shaver. I'm giving it 4 stars on the review. But really I thinks it's 4 1/2, but you can't do half stars on Best Buy. The 1/2 point of is because to carrying pouch/case and no soft brush to clean the blades.

    Another Great Shaver

    I've been Panasonic Arc Shaver user for more than 20 years (maybe more than that), but with Covid19 being what it's been, it was time to find a shaver that could also be used as a trimmer. In my opinion Panasonic has the best wet/dry shaver on the market, it's 13,000CPM motor has given me a good shave for years. I used to shave in the shower but over the years I've adjusted to a dry shave. The Panasonic pop-up trimmer often helps me knock down the first layer with easy. The thin foil cover helps me get a clean, close shave. And it stays charged for a long, time I frequently only recharge when the charge level drops to 20%, and this will take 2-3 weeks, using every other day (typically).

    Well after letting covid19 made me lazy (not needing to shave because I was not leaving the house), the bearded look started to set in, as did my need for a haircut, or at least a trim. The two different trimmers, adjustable from 1mm to 6mm made this a very flexible choice. The 3mm trimmer is perfect for keeping my stash just the right length, and the 6mm is fine to keep my hair (what's left) trimmed.

    Using it as a Dry shaver, it does not pull or tug on you whiskers, it smoothly and effectively cuts them down. The before and after pictures below took about 2 minutes. This was the most hair I've ever had on my face, and it had to go. The Arc Shaver performed wonderfully, and given my prior experience with Panasonic Shavers, I know it will continue to do so for many years.

    If you've never tried a straight electric shaver, this is the one to get. It's easy to keep clean, just don't dent the shaving head, and it will take care of you beard for years. The trimmer, is easy to use and does a great job of cleaning up, the thin foil head gives a shave as close as you can get (or need to). And if you want to use it to trim your hair this trimmers adjustable clipon's do a great job.

    ARC shavers continues to be one of my favorite products, it's only improved over the years.

    Easily handles a beard to smooth skin

    What I liked:

    - The rubber grips feel good in the hand

    - The tapered grip handle of the razer made holding the razer during shaving easy to get the neck area

    - Razer has a lot of power

    - Pop up trimmer cut right through my 1" beard

    - 2 trim attachments with multiple settings work well (attachments appeared to look awkward at first, but were actually ergonomic in the hand)

    - battery seems to hold charge with lasting power

    - Took down long hair with one pass

    - Skin felt smooth and shave lasted longer than previous electric shaver

    - Pop up trimmer gave me a clean edge around my goatee beard

    - No redness or ingrown hairs so far

    - Trimmed up my hair line in the back

    - Easily washable during shaving

    - Did not tug hair

    - I don't have to push it into my face for smooth shave

    - unit did not get hot while using

    What can be improved:

    - This razer is very loud and can be heard throughout the house

    - When the pop up trimmer is out it is even louder

    - No charging stand included

    - No storage pouch included

    - My unit did not include a cleaning brush (I guess you can just rinse it with water)

    I have been using foil based electric raisers for years. My skin is super delicate and is easily irritated when I shave. When I moved from disposable to electric my first venture was with rotary shaver. Rotary shaved real close to skin but my skin always got irritated with red rash and ingrown hairs. So I switched to foil and never looked back. This razer motor is much more stronger than my previous foil shaver but much more louder. So the trade off here is a better shave vs. a louder shave. The individual hairs on my face are very thick and I felt this shaver cut through the hairs like butter.

    I am left handed and like most shavers did not have a problem using this one. I would say if you buy this one just make sure to buy a razer pouch for storage. My previous shaver came with a stand and accessory compartments.

    Thins to know about the unit:

    Replacement parts per operating instructions:

    System outer foil and inner blades --> WES9013

    System outer foil --> WES9087

    Inner blades --> WES9068

    Battery is non replaceable and is of the Lithium ion chemistry (can be removed for recycling)

    Included oil is made up of liquid paraffin

    A razor made for beards in mind.

    This is your typical modern razor made for beards due to the attachments. I prefer the close shave of a razor which this does not come close to. Nor does any electric razor. I have to I did use this for a few days and it did cut really well compared to other premium ones I have used. I like the feature that adjusts to your hair. I did not get to use the long beard attachments but I’m planning to this fall. I think it will do a good job for longer beards. I should note it uses the trimmer for the beard attachments so we will see how it does. My favorite part is the pop out trimmer. Those always were my favorite.

    Phillips Norelco 7100 Electric Shaver

    The Phillips Norelco 7100 shaver is amazing! Compared to my last electric shaver this one is much better in both comfort and closeness in shave.

    Pros: Comfortable

    Good for sensitive skin

    Great with those who have acne

    Cons: As it is an electric shaver it may have a different after feeling where the skin feels a bit sore. But this is totally normal! It takes a week or two before your skin adjusts than you’ll be just fine.

    Overall Opinion: Amazing and would recommend to all.

    Never knew I needed this

    I don't shave every day because my facial hair doesn't grow very fast. So all this time I've used a razor to shave and that happens every few days or so. When I got this norelco, I was curious to see how it would do in the shower. Well, it works great but I feel it doesn't give me the closeness that a razor does and it does take just a bit longer to cover all the areas for a close shave. Where this item really works for me, is when I need a quick "clean-up" before i head out of the house. This has made it so much easier and quicker. The razor itself gives a nice close shave without any irritation, not as close as a razor but that is to be expected. The one added benefit for me was every morning a quick run with this shaver made me have to use the razor a lot less. The form design fits in the my hands really nice. Not once did it slip even when my hands where wet. I'm really impressed with this unit. Oh, and the battery last quite a while. I used it every day for a week and lost 1 bar.

    Nifty Shaver

    The Phillips Norelco Shaver 7100 is a nifty, nicely featured alternative to your everyday razer. Going back and forth thinking about trying one, I took the jump. With the nice features and savings of not having to buy blades ever so often, the 7100 is now my go to for my shaving needs.

    The shaver comes with the Norelco 7100 shaver, a blade guard, a small hair cleaning tool for cleaning hair off of the shaver, and a charger. Additional accessories are available like a charging and cleaning station as well as a travel pouch from Phillips.

    After finally deciding to shave my beard and mustache, I used the 7100 to see how smooth of a shave it would leave. Touting thier SenseIQ, Smart Hair, and ComfortGlide technology, Phillips claims to achieve better shaves with less irritation. With less irritation and redness, it accomplished what my previous razer would, a clean, smooth shave. The movement allowed on the shaver was nice as well and I was able to easily shave in areas like my chin and upper neck. The biggest reasons why I would choose to use this shaver is because of it's features; a decent pop up side trimmer for longer hair, mustaches and side burns, its patented ComfortGlide rings that help irritation (did help some for me), its IPX7 waterproof rating (can be used inside the shower), and its cutting blades that last longer than one blade would. There is also a nice app that gives tips for shaving based on the way you shave and keeps track for how long and how often you shave.

    One down side to the shaver was that it only lasts for one hour. It didn't nor doesn't take long to shave but having to remember to charge it after just one hour of use.

    Coming from a regular razer to the shaver it did take some getting use to. Overall I would recommend the Phillips Norelco Shaver 7100 for those looking to combine a small trimmer with their shaver and save on blades purchased.

    Like shaving with a dinner plate

    This does provide a good shave but was very awkward for me to use. The shaver head itself is extremely large. Each rotating head has a "wing" that sticks off to the side which is supposed to help it to contour to your face. I found these "wings" made it hard to get into smaller areas of my face compared to my older Norelco shaver. I ultimately ended up returning it to Norelco because of this.

    The good, it is a powerful shaver that did provide a good shave in the areas I could easily reach. I never used the smartphone app so I can't speak to how useful that is.

    It could be that this just did not fit my face so you may have better luck than me with it.

    Nice shaver

    I've tried electric shavers in the past, never worked well for me. Got tired of shaving and my skin is getting more sensitive with age so I thought I would try an electric shaver again. Pleasantly surprised, this shaver works well and my skin is happier. Not as close as old school shaving, but closer than the shavers I tried in the past and works well for me!

    Close Shave! And that’s a good thing!

    To get straight to the most important aspect about this device, it delivers a very close shave with no irritation.

    Now on to the other things...

    The blades are nice and sharp which produces a clean shave with no discomfort. The flexible head with 3 individual heads that move independently allow it to move across the curves on your face while providing broad coverage, so fewer passes are needed to avoid irritation.

    You can also use this shaver in the shower if you’d like with any shaving foam or creams but I used this shaver primarily dry without any lubricants or water and it was still incredibly comfortable.

    It also has a pop-up trimmer that you can use for cleaning up your sideburns or facial hair so it’s kind of an all-in-one package.

    It’s incredibly easy to clean. All you do is just press one button and the head pops up and you just rinse it off with water.

    This shaver does exactly what it’s supposed to do - highly recommended!

    The shaver work as intended it shaves close to the skin and battery life is good. I don't like the round shape of the knives in order to get the hair you have to do circles in the face, so I replaced it wit a different shape of blades that works better for me.

    NOT NORELCO’S SHINING MOMENT

    I never expected to write a less than excellent review of any Norelco shaver, and I am extremely disappointed to be required to do so at this time.

    I have been using Norelco rotary shavers for approximately 25 - 30 years. Once you try a Norelco rotary shaver you become a lifelong Norelco user. The two fundamental reasons are 1) Norelco rotary shavers give the closest, cleanest, quickest and most comfortable shaves, and 2) Norelco rotary shavers are typically extremely durable and reliable, and have exceptional longevity.

    The Norelco Model S7783/84 – 7500 Series is a new, mid-tier shaver. It has Norelco’s newer body configuration with a slender, non-contoured handle and a separate three head shaving unit gimbal mounted above. I have been using a 9-10 year old Norelco 8240XL shaver, which has the older, original “hockey stick” Norelco body shape with the shaving unit integral to the handle. The S7783 has a textured rubber gripping surface on two sides, but I find that the older style, traditional Norelco shape provides a more comfortable and more natural grip. Additionally, the traditional shape Norelco accommodates a higher grip on the shaver, allowing a natural grip around the shaving heads, providing better control and more comfortable operation.

    The Norelco S7783 package includes the shaver, a travel case, Quick-Clean Pod with fluid cartridge, corded wall charger (charging port on bottom of the shaver handle), a small cleaning brush and User’s Manual.

    Notably absent is the plastic Protection Cap which is typically included for covering and protecting the shaving heads. Each of the five Norelco shavers that I have owned, have included both a travel case and a protection cap, which is clearly an inexpensive item, but which serves an important purpose.

    The S7783 may be used for wet or dry shaving. I have never wet shaved with an electric shaver, nor do I intend to. Among the reasons for abandoning blade razors and shaving cream decades ago, was the convenience and comfort of dry, electric shaving.

    Because it may be used for wet shaving, the S7783 is restricted to battery use, only. If the battery fully discharges during a shave, it cannot be plugged in with the charger to finish the shave. The quick charge capability allows a single (appx. 3-4 minute) shave after 5 minutes of charging. If hurried, that additional 5 minute wait for battery charging may be inconvenient.

    Norelco claims that a full, one hour charge of the Li-ion battery provides 60 minutes of shaving.

    The S7783 incorporates “Sense-IQ” “smart” features. The S7783 microprocessor is supposed to adjust motor speed based on the load on the motor. It monitors the battery state of charge and also interacts with an accelerometer for interfacing with the Norelco GroomTribe phone app. It also controls the LED icons on the shaver handle and connects with smartphones via Bluetooth.

    After fully charging the battery, I installed the Android version of Norelco’s GroomTribe app. The app requires creation of a Norelco web account and password. Next is Bluetooth pairing. The shaver can only be paired to one phone at any time. Once paired, the product registration process for warranty is initiated.

    The app identified the shaver as a “7000 Series” shaver, but the correct model number (S7783/84) is not in the app’s product table. GroomTribe misidentified and registered the shaver as an S7940/84. The search feature in the app fails to find any other 7000 series models. Moments after registration, the app installed a firmware update on the shaver.

    There is no way to determine if the firmware update was correct for the S7783 model, or if it was really for the firmware for the S7940 model which the app misidentified. GroomTribe cannot display the Firmware Version installed on the shaver for verification that the correct firmware was installed. If the incorrect firmware, for the incorrect S7940 model was installed by Norelco’s smartphone app and servers, this S7783 shaver is potentially corrupted.

    Norelco Support was immediately contacted, but was unable to resolve the issue, and escalated the matter with a promised response in 3-5 business days.

    Norelco Support has still not provided a resolution after 11 calendar days (6 business days) and numerous follow-up telephone calls to them.

    The foregoing issues with the possibly incorrect firmware being downloaded to the shaver by the Norelco app, coupled with the Norelco Customer Service / Technical Support delays, is the primary basis that I cannot recommend this shaver model, unless and until those issues are definitively resolved.

    There is no synchronization of information between the app and the web portal, other than the login credentials.

    GroomTribe monitors three metrics and uses two of them to provide shaving advice. GroomTribe reports the remaining battery capacity of the shaver. This is important, since having the shaver battery die during a shave results in at least 5 minutes of delay waiting for enough recharge to resume shaving.

    GroomTribe monitors the duration of each shave, defining a maximum interval of 4 minutes. Shaves exceeding 4 minutes result in a notification to “watch your time”.

    GroomTribe, using the shaver’s accelerometer, monitors the shaving motion and reports both in the app and with an LED icon on the shaver handle. A near continuous circular pattern elicits a good report from the app, coupled with a green LED icon of approval on the shaver. Failure to meet GroomTribe’s threshold for sufficient circular motion results in a message on the app and a red LED icon of disapproval on the shaver.

    The app can be used in the live, guided shave mode, or can sync stored data from the shaver

    I have never timed shaving. The shaving patterns and techniques that I have employed for decades always results in excellent, clean shaves irrespective of which Norelco model I am using.

    Other than for determining percentage of battery remaining, I found the GroomTribe app to be of no value. In fact, given the problem with misidentifying the shaver model and possibly installing the wrong firmware, I am compelled to conclude that the app is problematic.

    The S7783 has some notable physical differences from my other Norelco shavers. First, the three rotary shaving heads are mounted in large, blue pentagonal shaped “Comfort Glide Rings”, described as having a “special protective coating with skin gliding properties”. I found that the large pentagonal rings actually created additional drag (friction) during shaving, due to their large surface area and high friction coefficient. Additionally, the large margins between the shaving heads and the edges made it more challenging to trim close to my moustache, sideburns and lips.

    The overall dimensions of the shaving unit, and the spacing of the shaving heads are larger.

    The S7783 shaving heads are 4mm from the edge of the Comfort Glide Rings on the narrow sides and 6mm on the wide side.

    The traditional 8240XL shaving heads are only 2mm from the edge, facilitating easier shaving close to moustaches, sideburns, etc..

    The S7783 shaving heads are separated by 8mm, with the overall distance between the outer edges of adjacent shaving heads being 50mm. This wide separation results in one shaving head intermittently, but frequently not being in contact with skin while shaving, leaving only two heads in skin contact.

    The 8240XL shaving heads are separated by only 4mm, with the overall cross section being 46mm. All three shaving heads maintain good skin contact while shaving.

    Another significant difference is that the shaving heads of the S7783 are not “floating heads” which allows each of the shaving heads to move independently in any direction and angle, therefore maintaining skin contact and comfort. All of my Norelco shavers have had Norelco’s floating head system, and its absence is notable.

    The shaving heads of the S7783 are mounted in a fixed, near flush position in the “Comfort Glide Rings”. Those rings pivot on one axis to help conform to facial shape characteristics. However, floating shaving heads allow superior continuous contact, conformance to facial contours, improved comfort, efficiency and speed. This important, desirable feature is included on even more basic, less expensive models

    Norelco lists that the S7783 has 45 blades. More blades result in faster shaving. However, there is only a single shaving track, rather than three shaving tracks as are provided on some other models, including my older shaver. Norelco asserts that three shaving tracks offers “50% more shaving surface for a fast, close shave”. Additionally, the S7783 shaving heads are not “Lift and Cut” blades.

    The S7783 has a pop-up trimmer which works well for sideburns, moustaches, beards and hairline trimming.

    The hinged shaving unit opens easily for cleaning. I have yet to utilize the cleaning pod, however it appears that it will be a convenient way to accomplish thorough cleaning and blade lubrication.

    The S7783 is manufactured in the Netherlands.

    This new Norelco S7783/84 shaver provides clean, close shaves. I find it to be less accommodating to facial contours as a result of the distance between the shaving heads, coupled with the lack of floating heads.

    Although the S7783/84 does not include several preferred, desirable Norelco features, it is still a competent shaver. Based on the problems with the Norelco app potentially installing the incorrect firmware, which still remains unresolved by Norelco Customer – Technical Support, I cannot in good conscience recommend the Norelco S7783/84 shaver.

    Great for sensitive skin--also its main drawback

    I used Norelco floating head razors for over 3 decades--I always found them to be comfortable, face-hugging, and offered a smooth, close shave with relatively few caveats. That is, until about 6 years ago when I tried my hand at the Arc line of electric razors. I personally found their shaving performance to be superior to Norelco's floating, three-head design for one very simple reason: the larger, flat surface of the Arc razors offered more resistance and a larger, uniform cutting surface across a larger area of my face at any given time. This made for a "harder" shave (i.e. I felt the pressure of the razor on my skin to a greater degree), but one that felt closer and smoother when it was over. Recently, I tried my hand at one of Philips Norelco's updated shavers to see if things had changed any. I mean, this one has specially treated shaving heads to make them glide even MORE effortlessly over your skin...even MORE independent floating action for each cutter/comb set than I'd ever seen in this line, and the promise of a useful, app-connected shaving environment that spoke to my ever-growing technophile sensibilities. Was it enough to sway me back to the Philips Norelco family--um, not entirely.

    First, the good. Philips wasn't kidding when they said that the special coating on the shaving heads made for a silky-smooth, nearly effortless shave where the razor basically glides across your face. Couple that with the dramatic tilting/floating range of motion of each of the three shaving heads which pivoted around every contour and facial feature, and this razor cleared the stubble on my face without much effort at all. Even during the transitional week adjusting to a new razor, I never experienced one hot spot of razor burn. Based on my feeling, and that of my wife, the Norelco's resultant shave was every bit as close and smooth as the pricey competition. If you have to shave virtually every day (as I do), and if you have particularly sensitive skin, the Norelco's design is probably the surest bet you can make at achieving a close shave without worrying about irritating your skin.

    This particular model comes with a black plastic cleaning "pod," a two-piece stand that includes a container of cleaning fluid designed to clean the shaving heads even better than running them under tap water. The razor senses when it's placed upside down in the pod; once turned on, a special cleaning cycle engages (indicated by the blue LED on the display) that pulls the cleaning solution up through the shaving heads through various pulses and surges of the shaving heads. This runs for about a minute before automatically shutting off. It's ingenious and kind of cool to watch; but at least as of this writing, I can't find replacement solution pods on the Philips website or online retailer, so I don't know how long it will be before I'll be able to utilize that feature for more than the first month of ownership (the instructions suggest changing the cleaning fluid about every month or so depending on frequency of cleaning).

    Other contents in the box include a fitted travel case and small cleaning brush for the cutters/combs. Sadly, the travel case does not have enough room or cutout to accommodate the charger so if you are on the road for an extended period of time, you'll need to pack the charger separately. Philips projects a full charge should take only an hour and last about 20 shaves, but you only get a 3-segement charge meter to judge battery level. The pop-out trimmer is an odd-duck, sticking WAAAAYYYYY out from the body of the shaver compared to other electrics I've used in the past (I've provided a side-by-side comparison shot against an Arc 4 below to give you an idea as to the length of the trimmer assembly). In practice, the trimmer works fine at cutting a straight line for sideburns, but I found it a bit awkward feeling, especially for trimming hairs that start to brush down around the ears because it's so long...it felt a bit imprecise to hold, kind of like trying to write while holding a pencil near the back rather than up close to the point. Sadly, there is no snap-on plastic shaving head protector included with this model, nor is there a stand for storage when the razor is not in use (you could leave it perched upside-down in the cleaning pod, but at least a small portion of the shaving heads may still be in contact with the cleaning solution).

    The display offers reminders to clean the heads and other "helpful" advice about whether or not you're using the razor properly (i.e. a green or red swirl using small circles rather than cutting straight swathes across your beard) or whether you should head into the companion app to get some advice. It's an interesting, if not over-indulgent, feature and may have some appeal depending on your needs. The Philips GroomTribe app offers a few interesting features like AR-enabled projections of various beard styles on your own face, shaving tips and how-to's for achieving various well-manicured beard patterns, and diagnostics about your razor (how long it was used, exact battery capacity, etc.) and your shaving habits in general. There's a guided assistant that helps advise you as to proper shaving technique that even includes troubleshooting for things like redness, pimples, or ingrown hairs. You can adjust your "shave plan" in the app (i.e. do I just need to be clean shaven or am I aiming for a particular beard style) and the razor will give you an icon on the screen to let you know if you need to check the app for feedback based on the results of your latest shave. Thankfully, you don't need to have a phone with you or the app open while you're actually shaving...the app syncs to the razor's memory and downloads the telemetry data when they're in BT range. For me, this feedback has generally been in the form of "your shave took a little longer than normal" or "use more frequent, smaller circles during your shave," but then I have to shave every day and cannot sport a beard in uniform so my needs are relatively simple. I can see where the advice for someone going for movie-star stubble, or one of the many creatively named beard styles in the app, might find some value or useful information in the app about getting the results they're after.

    Where things falter for me is inherent in the design of the shaving heads themselves. As I mentioned right off the bat, if you need a close, comfortable shave, and have very sensitive skin, it's hard to beat Norelco's design. BUT, the floating heads have SO much range of motion that they also tend to feel "floppy" against my skin. Yeah, they pivot around the curves of my chin or jawline, but they also don't hold solidly in one place if I have a spot that is proving troublesome to shave. And because there are three circular shaving heads, there's a large "dead zone" in between the head assemblies where no contact is made at all between your skin and the cutting combs/blades. This is why you need to use small, frequent circular movements (the app calls this shave motion the "movement ninja"); but in practice, it's sometimes difficult for me to shave whiskers down in areas near ridges or small delicate features like the philtrum or labiomental groove--precisely because the cutting surfaces are so small, the gaps between them so large, and the razor head pivot and tilt motion is so great. Ultimately, this was why I moved away from the three head-design of the Norelco shavers and went for something with a larger, more uniform contact patch like the Arc line of razors.

    Whether any of this proves to be an issue for you or not obviously depends on your face type and shaving style, and whether your face is particularly prone to redness and burning that may come with larger, harsher razors or shaving techniques. In the end, I can say that the Norelco still delivers a compelling, close, incredibly comfortable shaving experience...it simply may not be for everyone. But for for those of you who already know what you're getting into, this latest outing from Philips Norelco definitely has a lot going for it.

    Good features on a great shaver

    I've used several Philips shavers and this improves all around.

    This particular model is made in Netherlands (Philips home country), which is where usually the newer models are made.

    The shaving heads are very flexible so they're much better than other shavers at following the contour of the face, and the surface around the shaving heads has a coating and pattern that makes it easier to glide. Those would be the most important features. It does a great job around the neck and cleans everything between nose and top lip. Those are the trouble spots on other shavers I used.

    The engine is relatively quiet and did not pinch nor pull hair even with a one-week beard, which cleaned in about 3 minutes. Daily shaves take about 90 seconds.

    The top shaving head can come off and Philips sells several accessories with their 'SmartClick' system (including different models of beard trimmers).

    This model also comes with a built-in trimmer, which does not require removing the shaving heads. It's on the back of the shaver like in their older models.

    The battery run time is rated to about 60 minutes, and I had over 80% charge after a week.

    It charges in about 1 hour using the proprietary plug in most Philips products. While Philips uses this same plug on every battery-shaver I owned (Because I started shaving when one had to actually plug the shaver to a wall plug), it's perhaps a good time to move to an USB-C connector, or support wireless charging, so to avoid traveling with unnecessary plugs.

    Compared to older Philips shavers, the handle on this one is longer and thinner. So it's a lot longer and doesn't fit as easily in a cabinet shelf as their older models.

    This version also comes with a self-cleaning base that is more compact, and requires a new type of cleaning cartridge that lasts from 1 to 3 months depending on use. The cleaning formula has no alcohol and also keeps the blades lubricated. The cleaning base doesn't need any power, as the shaver itself produces the foam, and takes about 1 minute to run it's cycle. I find that is better if I then open the shaver and let it air dry, otherwise it's still slightly moist the next day.

    Indicators along the body of the shaver include 3 bars for charge level, cleaning remined, and circular motion reminders (Which are hard to see while actually shaving).

    And for the feature I didn't know I needed, this shaver has Bluetooth, which connects to a phone app that reports battery level, run-time charts and amount of time shaving in circular motions, or when applying too much pressure (There are sensors on the shaver for that). Thankfully, the phone is not required, and when paired, it doesn't need to be near the shaver. The app also has some other shaving tips. The thing I did not like about this is that the shaver advertises it's Bluetooth name all the time, unless the shaver is in travel lock mode (holding the power button 3 seconds), which I find wholly unnecessary and also drains a small amount of power, so now I would really need to remember to keep it locked when traveling.

    It also comes with a semi-rigid traveling pouch that holds the shaver (but not the power adapter), but unlike every other Philips shaver I used, this has no plastic cover for the shaving head. I find this very weird. Had to go over the manual to confirm it was not missing, and the same model without the cleaning base does have a cover. Not sure why they would do this on a premium shaver.

    Besides this small annoyance and the ill-featured 'always on' Bluetooth, it's a great shaver. Clean shaves every time, no hair pricking. Glides very well and the spring-loaded shaving heads work very well at following facial angles and works better than other shavers in the chin and neck areas. Did I say this is made in Netherlands?

    Great advanced shaver

    THE BREAKDOWN:

    The Norelco wet and dry shaver 7500 delivers a decently smooth shave and I have to admit with less skin irritation than my other electric shave.

    The shaver came packaged in retail packaging. It was very well put together. Inside the box was the Shaver, a travel case, power/charging cord and a small cleaning brush.

    The shaver battery was almost completed depleted when it arrived. I fully charged the battery before first use. You can also charge the battery for one hour and it gives about 60 minutes of shaves and depending on the time you take to shave. This shaver has very flexible heads that does a good job of keeping contact with your skin. The heads are also surrounded by ComfortGlide rings. These rings have a protective coating to help reduce skin irritation. I found them to work very well. They also claim the they have 90,00 cutting actions per minute and that it also has self-sharpening blades. For the week that I have used this I cannot really tell if they do self-sharpen.

    I used the shaver in both wet and dry conditions and both seemed to work well. I did not notice any difference in either condition. The pop-up trimmer worked well especially trimming my sideburns.

    The shaver came with a cleaning base that cleans and lubricates in just a minute. I felt that this feature worked well and for me the only drawback is that you have to keep buying the pods to clean your shaver.

    The LED display on the shaver itself was great and intuitive. It has a three level battery level status, cleaning advice and a travel lock indicator.

    The shaver has intelligent sensors that reads facial hair density and auto adapts for your facial hair. It also tracks your motions when shaving and can guide you to shave better in fewer passes. The shaver also links to an app to track your shaves. I liked the app but for me I felt it was just a bit gimmicky.

    PRO’s:

    -ConfortGlide Rings

    -Great and intuitive display

    -Cleaning base

    -360 degree contour heads

    -Wet or Dry shave

    CON’s:

    -Constantly have to replace the pod cleaning solution

    SUMMARY:

    Overall, this product worked well and as intended, and I would recommend this to a friend if they are in the market for device like this.

    Close and smooth shave without cuts

    Really easy to setup right out of the box. Comes with a precharge on it and you're ready to use it right away. Charging cable, cleaning brush, cleaning solution and shaver. Having this on hand has been a time saver and a real comfort to me.

    The shaver is easy to operate with the push of a button. Works very well against days old stubble and clears up your face and gives you that smooth soft shave. Small circular motions really clean up your face well, and this shaver is super comfortable. I've had other shavers in the past that left my neck a bit red and nicked. This new Philips Norelco shaver is excellent and didn't leave me with any razor burn at all. Smooth shave and quick efficient process. The trimmer on the back works effectively and is precise with it's cut as well. I have been able to sync this shaver up with the Philips GroomTribe app on iOS. The app can assist with guiding you in how you're doing during your shave and how long to shave for the optimal time.

    Best shave I've had with an electric shaver and am really pleased with it. Looks really nice with it's color scheme and stands apart from the previous Philips Norelco razors that I've had. This is a fantastic shaver and I'm really pleased that the comfort level is the best I've ever experienced. Fits well in your hand and makes it easy to maneuver across your cheeks, chin, and neck areas.

    PRO:

    Close and comfortable shave

    Stylish looks

    Cleaning tool and holder

    CON:

    None

    Awesome. Just Awesome.

    I have used multiple electric razors in my life and I almost always reverted back to classic blade razor after a few weeks/months. This may prove to be the exception to that pattern.

    First off, this thing has Bluetooth! I mean, who doesn't love Bluetooth? When I told my wife it had Bluetooth, she thought my excitement was a little silly. She may have been right, but I don't care. KInda' cool to download the app and let it "train" you how to most efficiently shave. Pretty cool.

    Another unique feature is the cleaning pedestal. Simply open the cleaning fluid, place it in the pedestal, tighten lid. Then you insert razor head, press the "Clean" feature and one minute later, your razor is clean as new.

    Another note for reference, it is a wet / dry razor so you can use it in shower and with shaving gels etc.

    End of the day, it's a razor. It's job is to keep my ugly mug and bald head smooth and clean. This does an excellent job at that and it delivers in an incredibly comfortable way.

    End of the day, this a GREAT razor. Best I have ever used. Hands down.

    I would whole-heartedly recommend it to a friend.

    No The Close Shave You Want

    The design is a definite upgrade from last year's model. I like how they decided to place the trimmer(that works rather well) on the body of the shaver instead of having it as an attachment like the previous iteration. The heads do slide over the face with relative ease and the battery life is great. It is self cleaning, for the most part. And does so relatively quickly. And the hard carrying case is cool. It comes with a starter cleaning pod and cleaning dock. They even went so far as to give you an app to help monitor your shaving habits for a more satisfying experience. But that's about all the good you're going to get out of this thing.

    As for the shave itself. It honestly doesn't get close enough to warrant the price tag. You can use wet or dry, but if you want the best results, you'll want to opt for a wet shave with gel. The dry shave leaves you needing for. A face full of stubble, to be more accurate. Like I said, the trimmer works well, but you're not going to shave your whole face with it. The cleaning pod solution will last you anywhere from 1 to 3 months, depending on your shave frequency. 1 month being that you shave every day, because it's recommended that you clean it after every use. Keeping with the cleaner. The shaver will go into self clean mode when placed into the cleaning pod and pressing the start button. That takes about a minute, if you've opted for the dry shave. If you use gel, you're going to want to thoroughly clean out as much gunk as possible before placing it in the pod. That can be a pain. Simply put, it just feels like more work than convenience(Not everything needs an app) . I'd say pass on this one, unless you're a fan of the stubble. Nice design and they cut it close, but just not quite close enough.

    Very Sophisticated Technology, Even Closer Shaves!

    The Philips Norelco 7940 is the latest entry by Philips in a new generation of connected consumer personal care products. It incorporates a number of important advancements in shaving technology and is designed to provide the ultimate in sensitive skin care of any shaver available.

    Norelco shavers are manufactured by Philips North America (the tradename Norelco comes from North American Philips electrical Company.) which is a unit of Koninklijke Philips N.V. , a $20 billion Dutch electronics, lighting and medical products company founded in 1891. Among its best-known consumer products are Norelco grooming devices, Sonicare oral health products, Magnavox & Philips audio and video products, Philips kitchen appliances and personal healthcare.

    • Cleaning/Charging Stand Dimensions: 10 inch height, 5.7 inch depth, 4.8 inch width

    • Two year warranty on parts and labor

    I have used Norelco and other premium quality electric shavers for many years so I know what to expect and demand. This new Norelco 7940 is replacing a Norelco 9160 XL which was the previous top-of-the-line model and has given me flawless service for the past dozen years. See photo comparison of the new and old shavers.

    Like all Norelco shavers the 7940 is elegantly styled and very ergonomic. It is a nice combination of steel blue, silver and black. It is lightweight, but feels substantial in your hand. There is rubberized grip material where your index finger and thumb would grasp the shaver and your remaining three fingers cradle the bottom of the shaver’s body. It is a bit longer than my older Norelco and a bit lighter. Hidden icons on the front of the shaver (which are visible only when lighted) indicate connection status, sensitivity setting, a notice to clean the shaver, the Travel Lock status and the battery condition.

    The included cleaning/charging stand is rather bulky and it will consume about 20 square inches of your bathroom counter space. It is glossy black plastic with the top portion holding the shaver and the base containing the replaceable cleaning cartridge. LED icons indicate the charging status, the cleaning cycle and an alert notice when it is time to replace the cleaning cartridge.

    However, before you can use all of the 7040’s features you need to download the “GroomTribe” app to your smartphone. This requires pairing the shaver with your phone through Bluetooth but the process is very simple. Once paired, the app will offer a “guided shave” which monitors your shaving progress and provides tips to improve it. Usually the tip is just “Use smaller circles” or “Move the shaver slower. ” You will also be asked questions about skin irritation and the app will adjust the comfort setting between Normal, Sensitive and Extra-Sensitive accordingly. You can also manually select any of these settings, but only through the app. (You cannot change settings using just the shaver.) The app also has a number of helpful illustrated tips to improve your overall shaving experience.

    So how well does it work? Superbly! The shaving function is the most effective I have ever experienced. It is quiet (no loud buzz like some electric shavers) and it removed every trace of my stubble with absolutely no irritation to my skin. I am accustomed to very good shavers and this is certainly the best I have ever used. I did shave for about 10 minutes, more than the suggested 3 – 4 minutes, but I am not about the break the habits of a lifetime just to stay within Norelco’s concept of an ideal shaving time.

    Did the “Guided Shave” help? No, not really. It just made me nervous to have my $1,000+ smartphone sitting on my bathroom counter so that I could watch the screen for instructions. I kept imagining the phone being destroyed by getting knocked off the counter onto my marble floor tiles. I think the concept of a Bluetooth-connected shaver, guided by an app, is techno-overkill. As I noted earlier, the advice given by the guided shave feature is pretty trite and unnecessary. Perhaps a neophyte to electric shavers might find it useful but I don’t think it added any value. I suggest that you spend some money on a good, lighted, magnifying shaving mirror and you will achieve far better results than by relying on the advice of this app.

    When finished, I rinsed the shaver and put it into the cleaning/charging station. The station activated the cleaning cycle and for the next ten minutes the shaver would periodically run for a few seconds, stop, then run again. At the end I opened the shaver head and it was spotlessly clean and glistened with a light lubricant fluid which had a nice aroma. So I give this feature top marks for effectiveness. The downside is that the cleaning cartridges need to be replaced every three months at a cost of about $6 each time. Not a huge cost but something to keep in mind.

    However, I was curious if just rinsing the shaver heads would actually clean out all of the clippings. The next time I shaved I opened the shaver head and saw my beard clippings filling the head. I closed it up, then rinsed the head under running water and opened it again. It was completely clean! I am amazed by this since my old Norelcos always required me to flip open the shaver head to clean out the clippings. The new design somehow allows water to flow through and clean the heads thoroughly without opening them! So if you want to forego using the cleaning system I think you will still have a fairly clean shaver by just rinsing it.

    The separate trimmer head is a big improvement over the old, flip-out trimmer on previous models. It gives much better control and visibility. Nice design, Norelco!

    The shaver comes with an elegant, form-fitting travel case. But there is no room for the charger in the case! I wish that Norelco would change the design of its chargers to a USB-C system. That way a simple USB-C cable could recharge the shaver and eliminate yet another electronic item to pack on trips. Norelco makes the assertion that a full, 50 minute charge is sufficient for 17 shaves, but most men will shave longer than 3 minutes, which means that you can really only expect 5 or 6 shaves before depleting the charge.

    Another issue I have with the travel case is that Norelco does not include a protective plastic cover for the shaver head. See photo of my old shaver’s protective cap. Why did Norelco eliminate this very inexpensive, but extremely valuable item? A careless drop can damage the expensive shaver head but a plastic cap can eliminate that risk.

    OK, so how do I rate the Norelco 7940? For pure shaving function, it certainly deserves five stars. But the irritation created by the various issues noted above (size of the cleaning station, techno-overkill of the connected app, inability to change the shaver settings without using the app, lack of a protective cap, etc.) drop the overall rating to just four stars. I really like this shaver but I wish that Norelco would drop its obsession with Bluetooth connectivity and just invest in a better (USB-C) charger. Then this shaver would be perfect!

    You may disagree with my grumblings about some of the minor issues associated with the Norelco 7940 but I can assure you that you will agree with me that it delivers an absolutely superb shave every time!

    This one took me back...

    I’m pleasantly surprised. This Norelco 7900 series (specifically, the S7940/84) is the best floating three-head shaver I’ve ever used. The very first Norelco shaver I used was one my father found at an estate sale back in the early 70’s, when I was in junior high. He brought it home, fixed some electrical issue it had, cleaned it up, and that shaver took me all the way through high school. Remember the Norelcos that were advertised during Christmas, with Santa riding them through the snow?! This was like that. I still have the spray lubricant that we got at a shaver shop — kept it running all those years. But I digress…

    This is probably my 4th Norelco. The shape, weight, and power source has changed quite a bit since that first shaver, but not a whole lot in the last 10 years — until this one. Enter bluetooth connectivity. What!? Yes, bluetooth.

    I broke with tradition and actually went over the manual before firing this thing up. Doing as told, I loaded the app on my phone and went through the setup process. Using the information I had provided, the app actually set the shaver to a specific trim setting. In my case, it was Normal. There are 3 settings: extra sensitive (XS), sensitive (S), and Normal. After shaving, I gave feedback on the app as to the feel and comfort of my face. On the Normal setting, there were areas on my neck that felt a bit irritated because the cut was so close. The app has now set the razor to “S.”

    This brings up the first potential issue with this model — the ONLY way to set the shaver’s settings is through the app on your phone. Don’t get me wrong, everything worked out great. Some people, however, may not like the idea of one product relying upon another. That being said, once the shaver is set the way you want it, it’ll stay that way…as far as I know. There was something in the manual about “checking in” every 20 days or less, or when there’s a notification symbol flashing on the shaver. Doing this should keep everything in sync.

    I know that Norelco has been using this for some time, but the SmartClean contraption is going to take some getting used to, at least for me. Right out of the chute, I could see that there was now going to be extra expense as time goes on. But I’m making a pact with myself to actually use this as directed. To me, it makes logical sense — it keeps the shaver clean and lubricated. The expense comes when it’s time to change the cleaning solution cartridge, which I think is about every 3 months if you use SmartClean at least once a week. The rest of the time you can easily remove the head and clean everything under warm, running water. I think I’ve found a 3-pack online for about $17. I also read of someone washing out the tank and making their own solution. DIY at your own risk…?

    One more thing about the SmartClean — it’s one more thing to clutter up the bathroom counter. It’s not huge; it’s not ugly, but it is what it is.

    Something different from my last Norelco (and all the others), was that this one has a separate beard/sideburn trimming head, instead of the old pop-up ones that I had in the past. I like it. I don’t miss catching goatee hairs in the shaver heads while trimming it. Those were too close for comfort. No chance of that happening with this shaver. I see this as a plus.

    As for the shaver itself? Amazing shave. Granted, I’m used to the circular motion that is recommended for Norelcos. After having used a Braun that my sister got me a couple years ago, this was like going back in time.

    It’s nice to be back.

    Awesome Razor!

    I have been using this razor for about a week now and really love it!

    Philips-Norelco really put together a whole package from all the cool accessories to an awesome app. I love the travel case and the charging station! The charging station also has the ability to SELF CLEAN! Use it, rinse it under warm water and then place it in the charing station! It’s that easy! I have not used the trimmer feature as I have a small razor specifically for my side burns that I like but I did test the trimmer by popping the razor head off and putting the trimmer on. It works as advertised and was very easy to pop off and on again.

    I have dry shaved with this razor and prefer a wet shave with a shaving gel so this review will be from the perspective of using a shave gel when shaving with this razor. The instructions said that it takes 21 days for your face to get used to using an electric razor but my face doesn’t feel any more irritated than when I used my 5 blade high end handle razor. I would say using this razor is less irritating to my face than a 5 blade razor if anything. I have a thick beard and have to do two passes with a traditional razor and I have to do two with the Philips-Norelco as well so I’m not really gaining any huge time savings. But… No more Knicks and cuts and a more even shave overall is a huge benefit over the 5 blade razor.

    As far as how close a shave I get, I would estimate about the same maybe a little less close than a perfect swipe with a 5 blade razor but I don’t miss patches with the Philips- Norelco that I always do with a 5 blade razor. With the 5 blade razor I was always feeling around for the missed rough patch and swipe, swipe, swiping (knick and cut, cut) to get the close shave. Not so with the Philips-Norelco. It’s a smooth and even shave which I really love. It’s also fun to use compared to the handled 5 blade razor. I don’t feel like I am scrapping the first layer of my face off with this razor, it’s just a nice hum with zen like little circles and a close shave. I’m also in a job that requires me to have a clean shaven face. If I had a “5’ O’Clock shadow” I would hear about it! I shave at 0600 and leave work about 5pm and no one has noticed I have switched razors which is perfect! It’s also really light weight which surprised me and the build quality of the unit and accessories is top notch.

    I am also really impressed with the shaving app they put together. It’s called “GroomTribe” and it keeps track of my shaves and motion of my shave and has a guided feature that helps ensure you get an awesome shave! Sometimes companies incorporate useless tech features but Philips-Norelco smartly incorporated a helpful, fun and useful tech tool to enhance the shaving experience! You don’t have to use or open it if you don’t want to, your razor just sends the info to the app and you can review later or real time or just not bother at all. It’s up to you but I love it!

    The blades are supposed to last for 12 months which I love as well! I hate buying the 5 blade razors every month and they’re so expensive! This razor will pay for itself and then some in a year with not having to buy the 5 blade razors!

    You can’t go wrong with this razor! I was a little skeptical with an electric razor versus a 5 blade handle but I can’t imagine ever going back now! Just a great razor! I actually look forward to shaving!

    Close shave right out of the box

    Closets shaver I have owned, perfect right out of the box. Lol, I've never had a razor that has an app. The directions doesn't show how to insert the charging plug into the smart clean. A picture is posted on the review. It goes in at a 45' angle.

    A great shaver for a close, smooth shave

    I have a hard time getting a good, close shave. My skin is sensitive and so I inevitably end up with razor burn along with unsightly nicks and cuts all over. I’ve tried many different types of razors throughout my life (handheld, electric, and even a single-bladed straight razor) and none of them seem to work ‘just right’ for me. I love the convenience of an electric shaver but hate having to clean them and sometimes they just don’t do as good of a job as handheld razors. Fortunately, I’ve had the chance to try out this amazing electric shaver from Philips Norelco — the 7900 SmartClick and SmartClean Wet/Dry Electric Shaver.

    The 7900 SmartClick and SmartClean Wet/Dry Electric Shaver does a great job of providing a smooth, close shave without leaving behind bumps, redness, or discomfort. I’ve been using it consistently (at least once every other day) for about a week now and I can really tell a difference between the quality of the shave it gives me versus other shavers I’ve used. I just attended a three-day conference out of town and I depended heavily on the 7900 shaver to keep me looking professional instead of scruffy. The handle of the shaver is designed to be ergonomic. It’s easy to hold and has a soft grip covering that ensures that I can keep a firm grip on it while I shave — even if it gets wet.

    I also really like that the shaver is a wet/dry shaver which means that I have the option of shaving with it in the shower or simply over the sink. One of the benefits of using this shaver over a handheld one is that I don’t end up using shaving cream with it. So, there is less of a mess involved at shaving time. In the past, when I’ve attempted dry shaving with electric razors, I’ve ended up with razor burn. With the 7900 SmartClick and SmartClean Wet/Dry Electric Shaver, I’ve not had that issue. I think it is due to two things, one the shaver and two the iOS app that I have been using to monitor how I shave. The app has given me advice and has told me to slow down while shaving and make smaller circles, thus helping me with my redness.

    This shaver also comes with a very useful cleaning stand. For me, this is a big selling point since I hate having to clean out shavers and this one is self-cleaning. You simply place the shaver in the stand and it is charged and cleaned. The cleaning cartridge that comes with it is designed to last a very long time, too. And, while I’m on the subject, it’s easy to reorder said cartridge from Philips (or other online stores). In the past, I’ve had trouble finding a cleaning solution for electric shavers so it was really nice to be able to find the replacements for the cleaner right away.

    One of the most unique features of this shaver is the GroomTribe app. The app tracks your progress — much like a Bluetooth-connected toothbrush — and adjusts advice to ensure users get the best skin results. It is a nice tool that has been added to this shaver package. Also included is a SmartClick attachment for grooming. I used this the first day I received the shaver to cut my hair down enough so I would not experience any pulling of long hairs.

    I’ve really enjoyed using this shaver so far. It provides a really nice shave and has a lot of great features to it.

    Great shave from an Smart Shaver

    I have been a life long Norelco user (well as long as I have been shaving...) and this one has to be one of the best ones I have used. I previously had an 8000 series shaver, and I am getting a much better shave with this one. I have had it for less than a week, so I haven't had a chance to fully test out the battery life or use the included cleaning system.

    The interesting thing about the shaver is that it has an associated app. Unfortunately the instructions don't tell you the name of the app and the link doesn't work. However, I was able to find it. It is called 'GroomTribe' (the name is pretty unintuitive and I hope they decide to rename it...). But the app is actually useful. They have guided shave feature where the shaver connects to the app and monitors how well you shave. It gave me suggestions on how to improve the quality of your shave.

    Very Close Shave!

    I must admit, I was super super excited to receive this product. Everything I kept reading about this, really pointed in the direction for minimal razor burn. It’s been a few years since I’ve used an electric razor because I just couldn’t find one that didn’t give me razor burn. When I’m not keeping a close shave, I usually sport a quarter inch or 5 o’clock shadow… Just depends on the month and my mood.

    I must be honest, I’ve only used it once and got a super close shave following the slow circular motion it recommends. I was a bit surprised though when I opened the box and there was a note that said “razor burn will decrease over the next three weeks.” Basically as if saying, hey! Try this a few times and it’ll either go down or return it. Needless to say I was a bit uneasy.

    Out of the box you have some great things. Decently long charge cord, nice comfortable, smart app capable, smartclean cartridge, and cleaning station. At first I felt the cleaning/charge station was on the bulky side, but it doesn’t take up a lot of space on my counter. Some might feel it’s too big, so this product might not be for those minimalists. I did find a nice feature was a charge port in the bottom of the razor and cleaning station. It also provided a nice travel kit so I can take it with me.

    First use:

    Battery didn’t take too long to fully charge and has about an hour of run time. This razor felt great in my hand. It’s super light weight and felt like it glided along my skin. When I turned the razor on, I was surprised with how smooth and quiet the device was. I was able to get a close shave considering it’s an electric razor. Sadly it caught my neckline a few times and gave me a pretty bad razor burn. It was very noticeable, so I’ll have to be more careful the next shave. Aside from the razor burn, I really enjoyed it. It does say it gets better, so time will tell.

    I’m still getting use to using the GroomTribe app on my phone. All you do is pair the devices and it helps monitor your shaving progress. It also provides feedback on how to improve your shaving experience, so I’m really interested to see what it has to say. I’ll update the review after a few sessions. It’s interesting to note that you can adjust comfort settings in the app, but not on the razor itself. Was the app helpful? Not necessarily this first go round, but time will tell. I do like their feature though about razor burn, so maybe I’ll look into that a bit more with the app.

    Pros:

    Close shave

    Battery life

    Precision trimmer

    Felt great on skin with slow circular motions

    Glides smooth

    Can use on dry skin

    Can use on wet skin

    Can use with shaving cream or foam

    GroomTribe Smartapp

    Travel case

    Waterproof

    Cons:

    Skin irritation (note with machine said it gets better after 3 weeks)

    Bulky size cleaning station (not a deal breaker)

    Replaceable heads will run you between $24-45 per year, pending where you shop

    SmartClean will run about $16 for pack of 3

    Power

    Overall, I think I’ll have to test this product a few more times for a more full review. I’ve had the razor for about a week and have only used it once. I plan on using it again this weekend, so I’ll update this review as I go. I was able to get a very close shave this first time, so I’m super pleased about that. Only thing though... I got really bad razor burn along the neckline. Maybe it was user error, maybe it wasn’t. I’ll be able to tell the next few times I use it. The smart app is a really cool feature, but I think I was concentrating on that instead of inspecting my shave. The great thing though is that it’s super smooth as long as you do the slow circular motions like it recommends. I’d recommend this to those that don’t have super sensitive skin.

    I know what I'm getting.

    After using my philips norelco shaver for 10 years, its charger started to break, and difficult to find the blade that fit my old one.

    So I decided it is time for me to get a new one from philips. And I'm still happy with their product for sure.

    Same close shave I got from my old one. Actually, better since it has newer blade. Like the fact that it has cleaning charging station too.

    I'm sure it will last me another 10 years before I have to replace this with new one but at least I know I got a quality shaver.

    Great, but depends on your usage

    My general experience with electric shavers haven't been typically good, so I've been using Gillette razors for pretty much my entire life. However, I was looking for something that I could use to shave quickly, and this product pretty much does the job! (Albeit not being as clean as manual razors) If you're looking for something that can get the job done quite well quickly, I would definitely recommend this. If you're looking for something that can get you a super clean shave, I would recommend getting some of the high end electric shavers or stick with your manual razor.

    While I do like the fact that you can wash the razor part with water, I wish this came with a brush, but given the price I think it's definitely worth it. Again, it really depends on your usage, but this personally was a great purchase for me.

    Worth Buying If You Hate Daily Blade Face

    Good razor for quick easy face cleanup. Never seen nor heard of any razor that can give a smooth all hair gone shave like a blade. But if you don't need a daily babyface, this razor can do about as good as 10 times the price razors can give you. If your use to paying $200 to $300 or more for a razor and $79 or more every 4 months for new blade pack, buy this toss it after 4 months and get another. Mine on sale $29.99 + tax.

    Cuts whiskers, not your skin

    I have had electric shavers, ever since I started shaving, and have noticed that the Philips brand, has always been one of the best ones. The shaver I had before getting this Philips Norelco CareTouch, was an off-brand, and it constantly felt too slow and ripped the hair out when it got a few days old. This Norelco CareTouch is WAY better, and cuts it, not ripping it out. The speed of the blades makes a big difference, as this one sounds like they spin faster than my previous one. The space between the blade and the protective cover is the right gap, because it doesn’t scratch my skin or make it red. The trade-off is that it is not going to be an EXTREMELY close shave, but for me, it is perfect. I do not have coarse whiskers, so that too-close shave is not what I want. I like it when the shave is cutting hair, not scraping the surface of my skin over and over. I do a dry shave, but it does have the capability for a wet or dry shave, so I will be trying this in the shower. I would imagine it gives an even smoother shave, at that point.

    The balance of the shaver is pretty nice. The button is placed far enough away from where you place your thumb, that it will not inadvertently shut off, like my previous off-brand shaver lacked.

    I use my shaver every other day or 2, ever since Covid-times, but normally did it every morning. The battery life in this shaver is 60 minutes of use on a 1-hour charge, which ends up bring ~20 shaves. Well, I shave about half as much, as I only get hair like a Fu Manchu, so I would get about 40 shaves out of it, and then add in the “every other day,” it will get me through ~80 days. I charged it fully, so we will see how long it truly lasts.

    Blades definitely go bad before the shaver/battery, so the fact that there are self-sharpening blades, is awesome. If you need to replace the blades, it is “Philips Norelco Shaving Heads for Shaver Series 3000.” There is a built-in trimmer for sideburns, which I use, because I cut my own hair, but cannot get close enough with the hair trimmer, for the back end of my hairline, and this is very good for that too.

    The site shows in the specs, that it has NO travel pouch, but there is a case with a zipper, which I would classify it as a travel pouch. I just keep mine in the drawer, with the top cap on, so I won’t be using the travel case all that often.

    Overall, I like it, and it is far better than my previous model. I would buy this again.

    Built to Last

    When I started growing facial hair, my dad got me a Philips Norelco shaver. That was about ten years ago. Until my new CareTouch arrived in the mail, that is the shaver I used. I of course changed the blades out a few times over the years and the battery could barely make it through a single shave in the end, but it’s a testament to the build quality of these shavers. Just like my old Norelco, this one feels well built and is versatile with the ability to shave wet or dry. I also appreciate the pop-up trimmer for sideburns. The CareTouch comes with a zipper pouch for storage and travel, which I think is much nicer than the fabric bag that came with my old one. Time will tell if the CareTouch can get me through another ten years of shaves, but I have high hopes!

    Shaves close to a razor

    This Phillip shaver once you get it out of the box you will notice how light it is. The rubber grips on the side makes this easy to hold even when wet. I shaved my head with this thing and I was quite surprised how well it did. The results was pretty close to the regular shaving blade. I got the same results also on my chest and belly. Cleaning is very easy, just pop open the blade cover with the press of a button and rinse it off.

    This shaver also has a pop up trimmer and honestly it should not be there. I gave it a try and it did horrible, it barely cut my beard when I tried to shape it. Oh and don't shave your armpits with this you will get cut at least I did lol. Overall this shaver does a good job and in my opinion it gives me better shave than the 5000 series that I own. In the box you get the shaver, carrying pouch, a blade cover, charger and manuals.

    Smooth, comfortable wet & dry shaver

    Like a favorite, comfy pair of shoes, Norelco S3210 CareTouch Rechargeable Wet & Dry Shaver with Pop-Up Trimmer is a remarkably capable shaver that sells for $55 at Best Buy. I did a double-take on the price, but it’s true.

    **WHAT’S IN THE BOX**

    • Shaver with rechargeable one-hour Lithium-Ion battery

    • World Voltage 110-240V Charger (May require plug adapter for other countries)

    • Protective cap

    • Storage/travel case

    • User Guide, Registration Guide, Card Inviting One Extra Year of Warranty

    **THE SETUP**

    Easy as can be. Plug in to fully charge. Specifications call for up to one hour of use when fully charged. Will not operate while charging – an obvious legally-mandated safety feature to prevent electrocution. When fully charged, this shaver will operate wet & dry. When wet, it can be used with a water-wet face or with shaving cream, gel or even bath or shower soap, whatever helps to we the skin and beard. A pop-up trimmer is designed to trim sideburns and errant hairs, such as hair around the ears from infrequent haircuts during the Pandemic.

    A trio of LEDs shows the state of charge. When there are only about five shaving minutes remaining on the current charge, the bottom light begins to flash orange.

    It can take up to an hour to fully charge from a discharged battery. A five-minute quick charge provides enough power for one shave.

    After use, the cutter assembly cover pops open with a push for easy rinsing under tap water.

    **PUT TO THE TEST**

    One of THE simplest to evaluate product available. For this user, it was like slipping on a favorite pair of shoes after a hiatus. In my shaving experience, I have used everything from an old-fashioned single edge razor to the most modern and popular 5-blade razor. I’ve used electric shavers by Norelco, Wahl and Braun. I’ve been clean shaven and heavily bearded and everything in between.

    Since the Covid-19 breakout and lockdown, I have gone from a medium length goatee and thick moustache with a wide soul patch and stubble everywhere else. My pattern is to let it go for about a week before using a trimmer to drop it back to stubble. Every few weeks, I trimmed my moustache and goatee with a conventional cordless trimmer.

    And along comes this new Norelco, at a price point about ¼ the cost of the most expensive and fancy electric shavers I have used.

    READ THE MANUAL! I did, even though I was already accustomed to some basic rules. Use a light touch – DON’T apply pressure; use a gentle circular pattern to pick up all the beard hairs, even those hairs growing uncooperatively in random directions. THE most important rule to follow is this – Follow directions, being even gentler than one would think would be necessary, especially for a face not accustomed to this kind of shaving. Norelco shavers come with a 45-day money-back guarantee to encourage all users to take the time for the face to become accustomed to electric shaving. Directions are included for how to obtain money-back guarantee service.

    Using it is an exercise in speed and comfort. My first shave was with about a week’s growth on a dry face. Smooooooooth as silk! No irritation or burning. Even around my moustache and soul patch. With little effort and in only a few minutes, my face was as smooth as I could want for a day’s work whenever that might again happen after the current COVID-19 forced lockdown. Up popped the rotating blade cover. The blades and all the hair held inside were easily rinsed under the sink stream. And that was that.

    Four days later, I wanted to try it in the shower. With a wall-mounted shower mirror for guidance, I used shower soap, not shave gel on my face. Once again, shaving was quick and easy, even a bit closer than when I shaved with a dry face. Of course, rinsing it out was even easier while in the shower. Again, there was no irritation. A plus is the non-slip material preventing it from falling out of my hands in the shower.

    And that was that.

    For those who prefer or are forced by nature into baldness, this shaver can also help maintain a smooth chrome-dome.

    Replaceable heads are readily available and recommended to be changed annually to maintain irritation-free shaves.

    **CONCLUSION**

    For an almost unbelievable retail price of $55, I cannot think of how a more expensive wet & dry cordless shaver could do better. Now that I am back to having a cool Norelco wet & dry shaver, it will be easier to keep my facial hair trimmed the way I want. There is no longer a reason, other than laziness, to wait a week between shaves when it is as easy to shave as this.

    In conclusion, this is a hit with me. I will park my hair trimmer except for those times when it will be easier to trim the long hairs of my sideburns and around my ears between haircuts.

    **WARRANTY**

    Philips Norelco provides a full two-year warranty. According to materials packed with this shaver, scanning a code will “Unlock one extra year of warranty”.

    Summary report:

    Detailed results:

    This latest unit is the same size as the last one I received and is made in Indonesia. It uses a lithium battery and charges very quickly (less than 40 minutes). Shaves fine and is able to grab all hairs that escape other electric razors. Its motor speed is a little slower than the 3552 but strong enough to get the job done. Still my favorite brand for the last 5 decades.

    This is a wet dry unit with an extremely flexible head.

    Closeup

    With skin sensitivity, I use Wahl detailers or any type of liners or clippers to shave my beard. Using a razor, the old school way doesn’t work with me, maybe for lining up, but not a full shave, however, I always knew I could use an electric razor and I tell you, these are the truth. They cut just as close like the liners and my face is baby face smooth. No razor needed. It’s a very simple tool and easy to clean and charges up quickly. And the electric razors are good for a year before replacing!

    As far as the trimmer, I won’t use that part at all but I did shape my sideburns well with it, won’t work for lining up though, just some shaping, but that’s just my preference, the trimmer is awesome to have.

    Good Shaver for 1st time buyers

    The previous shaver I’ve used dates back several years, but also made by Philips. So trying this will be trivial and completely subjective. I’ve little experience in reviewing products like this so please bear that in mind.

    The shaver itself has a fairly flexible head, which helps in adjusting to the shape of your face. Comparatively, my previous shaver shaves very close. If I am not careful enough, the old shaver will cut just a bit of my skin off. Over the years I’ve used it, I’ve managed to deal with that. And perhaps subconsciously, I’ve been avoiding having to use it unless I personally choose to do so.

    This one doesn’t shave that close but close enough that it doesn’t cut into your skin. That’s a big difference to me. After using it twice thus far, I am quite satisfied with the result. Being able to shave regardless of wet or dry, in the shower or not, is a good bonus to me. Cleaning and washing after use is easy because of this as well. Sadly there’s no tiny brush included to help in cleaning (while it’s dry of course). But that is a minor detail. The shaving head is overall a bit too big for my preference but it did not hinder shaving overall. The included trimmer built into the shaver is a hit or miss for me. I believe the issue is how the trimmer doesn’t firmly stay up, as it flips open/up via spring-action and doesn’t have anything to lock in place. It’s a bit of a shame for that because such a simple thing could save us the need of owning a dedicated trimmer.

    Charging is done using the included charging cable and plugging it in. It’s too bad there’s no charging stand but that is reserved for one other model. So you’re stuck letting the shaver sit on the side or whatever as it charges. There is a battery and charging indicator light that helps in determining how much power is left.

    Overall I believe this is a good shaver to pick up. It works well for my face and I haven’t had any skin irritation or anything, an improvement over my previous shaver. While I’d like to use it some more to find any quirks or whatever with it, facial hair doesn’t exactly grow fast. So for now, this is the most I can say about it.

    Verdict: Good enough to buy. Recommended purchase if purchasing a shaver for the first time.

    Great Electric Shaver

    Please note, this is the 1st time I have ever used an electric shaver before. I was once purely a shaving gel and razor kinda guy.

    After using this, I have been using it paired with my razor. I'll explain why later.

    Packaging is pretty standard. It shows off exactly what you are getting. Shaver, charger, cover and a carrying bag.

    If it is the 1st time you are using it, remember to CHARGE IT FOR 3 HOURS before using it! (per the instructions). Then charging takes roughly an hour from empty to full after that.

    Using the shaver is a pleasant experience. No pinching, burning or cuts of any kind. It glides all over your face (in circular motions) with ease. Before I got this, I let my facial hair grow for about 3 weeks to test it. Took a few passes to finally get rid of all the hair, but for a "dry" shave, it felt good. No problems around the lips, nose, cheeks or chin area at all.

    But why 4 stars? Well the other feature is the trimmer. So while I tried to get a straight line for my sideburns, the trimmer had a heck of a time cutting the hair. Either side just couldn't come out clean. This is why I used a razor to touch it up.

    Excellent Razor for Tough Beards!

    I obtained this shaver for my son, who has thick hair and a tough beard. He can destroy a hand razor in a single use. However, the Philips Norelco Series 1000 has the ability to tackle his beard without any problems.

    Pros

    • Can be used in the shower.

    • Up to 45 minutes from a single charge or can use the cord (but not in the shower of course.)

    • The three 4D flex heads are very comfortable and are easy to clean afterward.

    • The pop-out trimmer is the best! It is precise and handles tough beards, sideburns, and mustache.

    • Can be fully charged in one hour.

    • Comes with a pull-string pouch for storage and travel.

    • Contoured and textured grip makes it easy to hold, even when wet.

    Cons

    • There's no indicator on the amount of charge left. (Not a big deal since it charges so quickly.)

    I highly recommend this Philips Norelco Shaver 2500.

    Budget and surprisingly great shaver!

    This Norelco 2300 is a budget shaver with high quality feel and light weight, in addition to the quiet shaving. It cannot be compared to any other high end ones, but honestly, I have other high end shavers and was surprised by the result of shaving with this, it is as close as the higher ends. I have used it for two days on dry skin and shaving was wow! i love the fact that this shaver is fully washable. Good on the go!

    What is in the box: Shaver, charging cable, and head guard.

    Decent Electric Razor

    I am a big fan of electric razors and have been using them for about 25 years. Not only do they provide a quicker/easier way to shave, but I appreciate the zero risk of cutting yourself and the edge trimmers provide a great way to keep sideburns and beards in nice order.

    I historically have used shavers with rectangular shaped foils and blades but gave this model with the circular blades a chance. After a few shaves it has performed well each time and is on par or better with other models I have used. I have not had to recharge it yet so it seems that it will go at least a week without needing charging.

    While I appreciate that this shaver came with a travel bag, the bag will only fit the shaver itself but not the charging cord. So if you are taking a weekend trip you should be fine, but if you are going on a long vacation, you will need to pack the charging cord separately. I do appreciate the provided cover to protect your foils when not in use.

    Overall, this shaver comes at a decent price and I encourage folks to consider it if they are looking for a good mid-level electric shaver.

    THE BEST ELECTRIC SHAVER FOR CLOSE, CLEAN AND COMF

    I have been using Norelco rotary shavers for approximately 25 - 30 years. My first Norelco was a gift from my son who heard me complain about wearing out the foil screens of my prior favorite shaver models. The initial transition from foil head shaver to rotary shaver requires allowing your facial skin and beard to acclimate to the more aggressive, rotary cutting action. Norelco’s User Manuals advise new users of rotary shavers about the typical adjustment period. The best method is to use a light touch, the minimum amount of pressure and to keep the shaver in motion over the skin. After several days of acclimation, you receive excellent, comfortable shaves.

    Once you try a Norelco rotary shaver you become a lifelong Norelco user. The two fundamental reasons are 1) Norelco rotary shavers give the closest, cleanest, quickest and most comfortable shaves, and 2) Norelco rotary shavers are typically extremely durable and reliable, and have exceptional longevity.

    I have a heavy, tough beard, yet my Norelco shavers typically last around ten years each. The only reason that they ultimately require replacement, is that the rechargeable battery finally wears out and will fail to hold a charge. Averaging ten years (and more) of daily use, and even then, it is only the battery that wears out, is a testament to the quality and reliability of Norelco shavers. I find that the cutting blades, which are replaceable, have been of such excellent quality that they remain sharp and effective and comfortable for many years, even with my tough, heavy, wiry beard.

    The Norelco Model 2500 is my preferred style of Norelco shaver. It is a triple, floating head shaver with pop-up trimmer. The three floating heads, which are in a flexible mount, provide an exceptionally close and comfortable shave, every time. The pop-up trimmer is excellent for side burns, moustache and the rear of the neck, at the hairline. The shape and contour of the shaver, coupled with the partially textured case molding, provides for a good, comfortable grip.

    This new Norelco 2500 shaver is providing the same comfortable and clean shave that I have always received from my prior Norelco shavers. It cuts clean and fast, and I never receive a razor burn.

    Cleaning is easy with the pop-open top which facilitates access to remove the accumulated shaving clippings. No cleaning brush is included, although one has been included with every prior Norelco. Importantly, this shaver is water-resistant, although it is not submersible. Periodic thorough cleaning by rinsing the cutting heads and drive pinion area under running water restores a like-new cleanliness and efficiency.

    The Norelco 2500 rotary shaver is value priced, but it is an economy model. This model does not have a pivoting shaving unit. The cutting heads have only a single row of cutting blades, rather than multiple rows of blades as better models do. It is reasonable to presume that 72 blades will cut faster, more efficiently and more effectively than only 15 blades (and probably last longer, as well). The cleaning brush is omitted. The features and functionality are basic. Irrespective of the foregoing, the Norelco’s performance is very good, providing, close, clean and comfortable shaves. It includes the most important and desirable basic features comprised of three floating heads, pop-up trimmer and Li-Ion rechargeable battery. LED diodes at the switch indicate when the battery is depleted, when it is charging and when the charge is complete. Also included is a thin, draw-string pouch. Based on prior experience, I am hopeful that this model will be as durable, reliable and long-lasting as each of my prior Norelco shavers. Notably, this is the first Norelco shaver that I have ever owned which is not manufactured in the Netherlands. This model is manufactured in Indonesia. It is very reasonably priced. Based on my favorable experience thus far, I recommend the Norelco 2500 rotary shaver.

    Gets the job done

    I have used the Philips Norelco Shaver 2500 S1311/82 for a week now, and it is a nice shaver. The battery is supposed to last 45 minutes, on one charge. So far, it has not had to recharge. From the beginning, it sounded slow, but it cuts better than my last electric shaver, so the speed doesn't seem to matter.

    My prior electric shaver was straight and didn't form well to my face. This Philips 2500 bends and forms to my chin and neck well, and cuts quickly. It takes less time to shave now, than my other shaver.

    One thing I noticed was that it opens the top lid every time I try to take the cap off. It dumps shavings out, which is a pain. So I just decided to keep it in my drawer without the top cap on. Problem solved.

    Overall I like this shaver. I didn't get skin irritating when switching to the new blades. Right out of the box, I plugged it in, and let it charge until I needed to use it that needy morning. The box says it is a quick charge.

    The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is the design with the cap.

    Best Shave so Far

    This is the first traditional electric shaver I have used. I use to normally use just regular razor blades, and for the last couple of years, I have been using the Philips Oneblade. I have to say that after a couple of weeks of using this I much prefer it to the Oneblade, which I had been thoroughly happy with.

    The most important part is obviously how easy does it complete the shave, and I feel this is much easier than the Oneblade. It gets just as close, and I have to say much closer at the jawline than the other shaver/blades I have used. It takes me far less time to complete the shave, and again all the while feeling much closer. Now, the instructions say to give your face about 20 days of using this shaver exclusively to allow your skin/beard a chance to get used to the blades on the shaver. The first shave I had with this went great, and I had no irritation after. The second one was during a few days off of work, and I had about a week’s worth of growth, and that one was a bit rough. The shaves right after with just a couple of days of growth have gone much smoother. I think this works much better if you are shaving every couple of days as opposed to allowing a week to go by between shaves.

    Something that I really like is that this shaver is much quieter than Oneblade. I don’t mind shaving even while my wife is still sleeping. It’s quiet enough that I feel like it will not wake her. The last thing that I really enjoy about using this shaver is that your whiskers aren’t going to go all over the place, like with the Oneblade. When I use the Oneblade the cleanup is annoying, whiskers all over the sink, counter, and my hands and arms. This shaver captures 99% of those whiskers and allows you to open the shaver head to dispose of them after. Cleanup is so much easier and faster.

    I can wholeheartedly recommend using this shaver. Easy to use, close shave, little to no irritation, quiet, and quick cleanup. Water-resistant so a quick rinse helps to keep it clean, the charge lasts a long time so if I forget to charge it I don’t have to worry if it’s ready for the next shave. I would be ok with leaving the charger at home if I was going to be making a quick weekend trip.

    A great razor that excels at its price point

    I have tried A LOT of electric razors over the years, and I am quite picky. I have a horrific combination of coarse hair and sensitive skin that is prone to ingrown hairs and 'pizza neck' from shaving with a blade or when it is exposed to the electric nibbling gerbils that some companies would have the audacity to call an electric razor. This razor has passed my test and is going to stay in my collection!

    Some pros that I love about it are that the whole razor, not just the blade head, is washable. Thus, shaving in the shower is a go for those who prefer. I would not fully submerse this, though. I also appreciate the pop-up trimmer. I maintain a tight beard around my jaw line, so having this trimmer built into it allows me to keep that edge going. I will say, I have pretty nappy hairs and this pop-up trimmer, although useful, does not quite have the horsepower that my Norelco 7000 does for buzz-sawing its way through my steel wool facial hair. The trimmer otherwise finds use in picking up the small hairs that the main blades miss. Your facial hair has a grain, just like wood, and sometimes hairs will grow against or opposite of the normal grain. The trimmer is great for spot trimming those hairs.

    The blades themselves are gentle, efficient, and achieve a closer shave than anything else I have. If I had to pick just one razor as a man who shaves his whole face, this would definitely be the one. This razor is definitely staying in my rotation for getting that close, date-night level shave on the neck without suffering through pizza-neck the next day (or even later the same day) like I always have with blades. Buy this with confidence.

    Great Electric Shaver

    Please note, this is the 1st time I have ever used an electric shaver before. I was once purely a shaving gel and razor kinda guy.

    After using this, I have been using it paired with my razor. I'll explain why later.

    Packaging is pretty standard. It shows off exactly what you are getting. Shaver, charger, cover and a carrying bag.

    If it is the 1st time you are using it, remember to CHARGE IT FOR 3 HOURS before using it! (per the instructions). Then charging takes roughly an hour from empty to full after that.

    Using the shaver is a pleasant experience. No pinching, burning or cuts of any kind. It glides all over your face (in circular motions) with ease. Before I got this, I let my facial hair grow for about 3 weeks to test it. Took a few passes to finally get rid of all the hair, but for a "dry" shave, it felt good. No problems around the lips, nose, cheeks or chin area at all.

    But why 4 stars? Well the other feature is the trimmer. So while I tried to get a straight line for my sideburns, the trimmer had a heck of a time cutting the hair. Either side just couldn't come out clean. This is why I used a razor to touch it up.

    Excellent Razor for Tough Beards!

    I obtained this shaver for my son, who has thick hair and a tough beard. He can destroy a hand razor in a single use. However, the Philips Norelco Series 1000 has the ability to tackle his beard without any problems.

    Pros

    • Can be used in the shower.

    • Up to 45 minutes from a single charge or can use the cord (but not in the shower of course.)

    • The three 4D flex heads are very comfortable and are easy to clean afterward.

    • The pop-out trimmer is the best! It is precise and handles tough beards, sideburns, and mustache.

    • Can be fully charged in one hour.

    • Comes with a pull-string pouch for storage and travel.

    • Contoured and textured grip makes it easy to hold, even when wet.

    Cons

    • There's no indicator on the amount of charge left. (Not a big deal since it charges so quickly.)

    I highly recommend this Philips Norelco Shaver 2500.

    Budget and surprisingly great shaver!

    This Norelco 2300 is a budget shaver with high quality feel and light weight, in addition to the quiet shaving. It cannot be compared to any other high end ones, but honestly, I have other high end shavers and was surprised by the result of shaving with this, it is as close as the higher ends. I have used it for two days on dry skin and shaving was wow! i love the fact that this shaver is fully washable. Good on the go!

    What is in the box: Shaver, charging cable, and head guard.

    Decent Electric Razor

    I am a big fan of electric razors and have been using them for about 25 years. Not only do they provide a quicker/easier way to shave, but I appreciate the zero risk of cutting yourself and the edge trimmers provide a great way to keep sideburns and beards in nice order.

    I historically have used shavers with rectangular shaped foils and blades but gave this model with the circular blades a chance. After a few shaves it has performed well each time and is on par or better with other models I have used. I have not had to recharge it yet so it seems that it will go at least a week without needing charging.

    While I appreciate that this shaver came with a travel bag, the bag will only fit the shaver itself but not the charging cord. So if you are taking a weekend trip you should be fine, but if you are going on a long vacation, you will need to pack the charging cord separately. I do appreciate the provided cover to protect your foils when not in use.

    Overall, this shaver comes at a decent price and I encourage folks to consider it if they are looking for a good mid-level electric shaver.

    THE BEST ELECTRIC SHAVER FOR CLOSE, CLEAN AND COMF

    I have been using Norelco rotary shavers for approximately 25 - 30 years. My first Norelco was a gift from my son who heard me complain about wearing out the foil screens of my prior favorite shaver models. The initial transition from foil head shaver to rotary shaver requires allowing your facial skin and beard to acclimate to the more aggressive, rotary cutting action. Norelco’s User Manuals advise new users of rotary shavers about the typical adjustment period. The best method is to use a light touch, the minimum amount of pressure and to keep the shaver in motion over the skin. After several days of acclimation, you receive excellent, comfortable shaves.

    Once you try a Norelco rotary shaver you become a lifelong Norelco user. The two fundamental reasons are 1) Norelco rotary shavers give the closest, cleanest, quickest and most comfortable shaves, and 2) Norelco rotary shavers are typically extremely durable and reliable, and have exceptional longevity.

    I have a heavy, tough beard, yet my Norelco shavers typically last around ten years each. The only reason that they ultimately require replacement, is that the rechargeable battery finally wears out and will fail to hold a charge. Averaging ten years (and more) of daily use, and even then, it is only the battery that wears out, is a testament to the quality and reliability of Norelco shavers. I find that the cutting blades, which are replaceable, have been of such excellent quality that they remain sharp and effective and comfortable for many years, even with my tough, heavy, wiry beard.

    The Norelco Model 2500 is my preferred style of Norelco shaver. It is a triple, floating head shaver with pop-up trimmer. The three floating heads, which are in a flexible mount, provide an exceptionally close and comfortable shave, every time. The pop-up trimmer is excellent for side burns, moustache and the rear of the neck, at the hairline. The shape and contour of the shaver, coupled with the partially textured case molding, provides for a good, comfortable grip.

    This new Norelco 2500 shaver is providing the same comfortable and clean shave that I have always received from my prior Norelco shavers. It cuts clean and fast, and I never receive a razor burn.

    Cleaning is easy with the pop-open top which facilitates access to remove the accumulated shaving clippings. No cleaning brush is included, although one has been included with every prior Norelco. Importantly, this shaver is water-resistant, although it is not submersible. Periodic thorough cleaning by rinsing the cutting heads and drive pinion area under running water restores a like-new cleanliness and efficiency.

    The Norelco 2500 rotary shaver is value priced, but it is an economy model. This model does not have a pivoting shaving unit. The cutting heads have only a single row of cutting blades, rather than multiple rows of blades as better models do. It is reasonable to presume that 72 blades will cut faster, more efficiently and more effectively than only 15 blades (and probably last longer, as well). The cleaning brush is omitted. The features and functionality are basic. Irrespective of the foregoing, the Norelco’s performance is very good, providing, close, clean and comfortable shaves. It includes the most important and desirable basic features comprised of three floating heads, pop-up trimmer and Li-Ion rechargeable battery. LED diodes at the switch indicate when the battery is depleted, when it is charging and when the charge is complete. Also included is a thin, draw-string pouch. Based on prior experience, I am hopeful that this model will be as durable, reliable and long-lasting as each of my prior Norelco shavers. Notably, this is the first Norelco shaver that I have ever owned which is not manufactured in the Netherlands. This model is manufactured in Indonesia. It is very reasonably priced. Based on my favorable experience thus far, I recommend the Norelco 2500 rotary shaver.

    Gets the job done

    I have used the Philips Norelco Shaver 2500 S1311/82 for a week now, and it is a nice shaver. The battery is supposed to last 45 minutes, on one charge. So far, it has not had to recharge. From the beginning, it sounded slow, but it cuts better than my last electric shaver, so the speed doesn't seem to matter.

    My prior electric shaver was straight and didn't form well to my face. This Philips 2500 bends and forms to my chin and neck well, and cuts quickly. It takes less time to shave now, than my other shaver.

    One thing I noticed was that it opens the top lid every time I try to take the cap off. It dumps shavings out, which is a pain. So I just decided to keep it in my drawer without the top cap on. Problem solved.

    Overall I like this shaver. I didn't get skin irritating when switching to the new blades. Right out of the box, I plugged it in, and let it charge until I needed to use it that needy morning. The box says it is a quick charge.

    The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is the design with the cap.

    Best Shave so Far

    This is the first traditional electric shaver I have used. I use to normally use just regular razor blades, and for the last couple of years, I have been using the Philips Oneblade. I have to say that after a couple of weeks of using this I much prefer it to the Oneblade, which I had been thoroughly happy with.

    The most important part is obviously how easy does it complete the shave, and I feel this is much easier than the Oneblade. It gets just as close, and I have to say much closer at the jawline than the other shaver/blades I have used. It takes me far less time to complete the shave, and again all the while feeling much closer. Now, the instructions say to give your face about 20 days of using this shaver exclusively to allow your skin/beard a chance to get used to the blades on the shaver. The first shave I had with this went great, and I had no irritation after. The second one was during a few days off of work, and I had about a week’s worth of growth, and that one was a bit rough. The shaves right after with just a couple of days of growth have gone much smoother. I think this works much better if you are shaving every couple of days as opposed to allowing a week to go by between shaves.

    Something that I really like is that this shaver is much quieter than Oneblade. I don’t mind shaving even while my wife is still sleeping. It’s quiet enough that I feel like it will not wake her. The last thing that I really enjoy about using this shaver is that your whiskers aren’t going to go all over the place, like with the Oneblade. When I use the Oneblade the cleanup is annoying, whiskers all over the sink, counter, and my hands and arms. This shaver captures 99% of those whiskers and allows you to open the shaver head to dispose of them after. Cleanup is so much easier and faster.

    I can wholeheartedly recommend using this shaver. Easy to use, close shave, little to no irritation, quiet, and quick cleanup. Water-resistant so a quick rinse helps to keep it clean, the charge lasts a long time so if I forget to charge it I don’t have to worry if it’s ready for the next shave. I would be ok with leaving the charger at home if I was going to be making a quick weekend trip.

    Great first electric shaver

    I've never owned an electric shaver before. I had to purchase one because of a recent surgery that limited the use of my right arm. Trying to relearn how to shave with my non dominant hand was a disaster; lots of cuts and nicks. So I decided to give an electric shaver a try to see if I could use it to shave with my other hand.

    After reading the reviews for the Braun Solo 3 and noticing it's affordable price, I purchased one. I have not been disappointed. I was able to shave my face without all of the nicks and cuts. It took some practice, but it ended up working well.

    After using this item for 2 months, it has become my primary way to shave, even after recovering from my surgery. It is fast and convenient.

    I will say that in order for me to get a close shave with this razor, I have to shave against the grain of my hairs. This isn't a big deal, but just something to consider. Additionally, if you let your stubble get really long, the razor can tug at your hairs if you shave too fast or make any jerky movements. I don't think this is a con, just something to consider.

    One last note: I do have sensitive skin and this razor has not aggravated it or caused any razor burns. I think that this is a great electric razor to purchase if you want to give one a try without spending too much money. Recommended.

    Ideal for every other day shaving

    I've been using this for a while now and while I haven't replaced the head, it still cuts fine. The battery lasts for at least 5 leisurely shaves but cleaning up the head was hectic. Even after using the brush that it comes with and washing it down, there are pieces still stuck on the foil itself. Don't apply too much pressure as it will lead to irritation, especially on sensitive skin like mine. Getting a close shave will take a while but so far, it has outlasted most of the cartridge razors I've owned. I've heard Andis foil shaver cuts better so I would take a look at that before you consider this.

    Sometimes you get more than you pay for

    For a shaver under $50, I've been very pleased with this Braun for the last 15 months. I use it about every 36-48 hours, just to trim around my beard. It's accurate, easy to use, fairly quiet, and I admit I still have to use a blade razor twice a week to get a few remaining hairs. Overall, it's still a lot better than my older Remington.

    Braun replacement shaver

    This is a replacement for a similar Braun shaver. As seems to be the case today, the shaver has less features than the one it replaced.

    This shaver does not have the ability to flex the shaver head to offer a closer shave under the chin and below the lip. There is also no travel case, just a hard plastic cover to protect the blade.

    With all that being said, it offers a decent shave and the battery life between charges is good.

    Great base line shaver

    This is a basic no nonsense shaver. It’s my second series 3 shaver. The last one lasted 10 or so years, until the trimmer started to fall apart! I looked at series 5 and 9, but it seems the more gimmick they have, the more possibilities of things breaking or not working. I certainly don’t need all the options higher models offer, just need a basic shaver.

    If you use a blade to shave, understand that you’ll need to shave over the same area to get a clean shave. No electric shaver matches sharp blades.

    Nothing but love and a smooth face!

    This is my second Braun electric razor, however my first one is a single foil purchased probably 15 or 20 years ago which I still use and love, however the battery doesn’t quite hold a charge like it used to, But unlike my new one, I can still plug the old one in and use it at the same time at full AC power, This new Braun razor only operates under the power of the battery, which is a bummer. Both options should be offered, I like to have a slightly larger razor than the old single foil for cleaning up my larger face areas after I shave in the shower with a regular razor, So I use my old single foil one for more delicate areas like under the nose or for nose hairs, And I actually prefer the old sideburn trimmer for my neckline and sideburns vs. this new one, just less bulky. This one is nice and quiet compared to my old ones. Even my older razor I used to use was an old Remington which still works, But it was still probably 10 years old, so it was time for something new. This one is much quieter than the other two and shaves like butter. I don’t wet shave with this only because I never have with any other electric razor. For my purposes, it’s not needed. I did try this razor with about a two-day growth, and I have no complaints whatsoever, as it is much better than my other old razors. For the price, you can’t really beat it. The sideburn trimmer works fine and is a nice little extra feature, like on my old one. Highly recommended if you’re just going to use it for maybe a one or two day stubble or for just cleaning up after a using a razor.

    Great Electric Shaver

    Please note, this is the 1st time I have ever used an electric shaver before. I was once purely a shaving gel and razor kinda guy.

    After using this, I have been using it paired with my razor. I'll explain why later.

    Packaging is pretty standard. It shows off exactly what you are getting. Shaver, charger, cover and a carrying bag.

    If it is the 1st time you are using it, remember to CHARGE IT FOR 3 HOURS before using it! (per the instructions). Then charging takes roughly an hour from empty to full after that.

    Using the shaver is a pleasant experience. No pinching, burning or cuts of any kind. It glides all over your face (in circular motions) with ease. Before I got this, I let my facial hair grow for about 3 weeks to test it. Took a few passes to finally get rid of all the hair, but for a "dry" shave, it felt good. No problems around the lips, nose, cheeks or chin area at all.

    But why 4 stars? Well the other feature is the trimmer. So while I tried to get a straight line for my sideburns, the trimmer had a heck of a time cutting the hair. Either side just couldn't come out clean. This is why I used a razor to touch it up.

    Excellent Razor for Tough Beards!

    I obtained this shaver for my son, who has thick hair and a tough beard. He can destroy a hand razor in a single use. However, the Philips Norelco Series 1000 has the ability to tackle his beard without any problems.

    Pros

    • Can be used in the shower.

    • Up to 45 minutes from a single charge or can use the cord (but not in the shower of course.)

    • The three 4D flex heads are very comfortable and are easy to clean afterward.

    • The pop-out trimmer is the best! It is precise and handles tough beards, sideburns, and mustache.

    • Can be fully charged in one hour.

    • Comes with a pull-string pouch for storage and travel.

    • Contoured and textured grip makes it easy to hold, even when wet.

    Cons

    • There's no indicator on the amount of charge left. (Not a big deal since it charges so quickly.)

    I highly recommend this Philips Norelco Shaver 2500.

    Budget and surprisingly great shaver!

    This Norelco 2300 is a budget shaver with high quality feel and light weight, in addition to the quiet shaving. It cannot be compared to any other high end ones, but honestly, I have other high end shavers and was surprised by the result of shaving with this, it is as close as the higher ends. I have used it for two days on dry skin and shaving was wow! i love the fact that this shaver is fully washable. Good on the go!

    What is in the box: Shaver, charging cable, and head guard.

    Decent Electric Razor

    I am a big fan of electric razors and have been using them for about 25 years. Not only do they provide a quicker/easier way to shave, but I appreciate the zero risk of cutting yourself and the edge trimmers provide a great way to keep sideburns and beards in nice order.

    I historically have used shavers with rectangular shaped foils and blades but gave this model with the circular blades a chance. After a few shaves it has performed well each time and is on par or better with other models I have used. I have not had to recharge it yet so it seems that it will go at least a week without needing charging.

    While I appreciate that this shaver came with a travel bag, the bag will only fit the shaver itself but not the charging cord. So if you are taking a weekend trip you should be fine, but if you are going on a long vacation, you will need to pack the charging cord separately. I do appreciate the provided cover to protect your foils when not in use.

    Overall, this shaver comes at a decent price and I encourage folks to consider it if they are looking for a good mid-level electric shaver.

    THE BEST ELECTRIC SHAVER FOR CLOSE, CLEAN AND COMF

    I have been using Norelco rotary shavers for approximately 25 - 30 years. My first Norelco was a gift from my son who heard me complain about wearing out the foil screens of my prior favorite shaver models. The initial transition from foil head shaver to rotary shaver requires allowing your facial skin and beard to acclimate to the more aggressive, rotary cutting action. Norelco’s User Manuals advise new users of rotary shavers about the typical adjustment period. The best method is to use a light touch, the minimum amount of pressure and to keep the shaver in motion over the skin. After several days of acclimation, you receive excellent, comfortable shaves.

    Once you try a Norelco rotary shaver you become a lifelong Norelco user. The two fundamental reasons are 1) Norelco rotary shavers give the closest, cleanest, quickest and most comfortable shaves, and 2) Norelco rotary shavers are typically extremely durable and reliable, and have exceptional longevity.

    I have a heavy, tough beard, yet my Norelco shavers typically last around ten years each. The only reason that they ultimately require replacement, is that the rechargeable battery finally wears out and will fail to hold a charge. Averaging ten years (and more) of daily use, and even then, it is only the battery that wears out, is a testament to the quality and reliability of Norelco shavers. I find that the cutting blades, which are replaceable, have been of such excellent quality that they remain sharp and effective and comfortable for many years, even with my tough, heavy, wiry beard.

    The Norelco Model 2500 is my preferred style of Norelco shaver. It is a triple, floating head shaver with pop-up trimmer. The three floating heads, which are in a flexible mount, provide an exceptionally close and comfortable shave, every time. The pop-up trimmer is excellent for side burns, moustache and the rear of the neck, at the hairline. The shape and contour of the shaver, coupled with the partially textured case molding, provides for a good, comfortable grip.

    This new Norelco 2500 shaver is providing the same comfortable and clean shave that I have always received from my prior Norelco shavers. It cuts clean and fast, and I never receive a razor burn.

    Cleaning is easy with the pop-open top which facilitates access to remove the accumulated shaving clippings. No cleaning brush is included, although one has been included with every prior Norelco. Importantly, this shaver is water-resistant, although it is not submersible. Periodic thorough cleaning by rinsing the cutting heads and drive pinion area under running water restores a like-new cleanliness and efficiency.

    The Norelco 2500 rotary shaver is value priced, but it is an economy model. This model does not have a pivoting shaving unit. The cutting heads have only a single row of cutting blades, rather than multiple rows of blades as better models do. It is reasonable to presume that 72 blades will cut faster, more efficiently and more effectively than only 15 blades (and probably last longer, as well). The cleaning brush is omitted. The features and functionality are basic. Irrespective of the foregoing, the Norelco’s performance is very good, providing, close, clean and comfortable shaves. It includes the most important and desirable basic features comprised of three floating heads, pop-up trimmer and Li-Ion rechargeable battery. LED diodes at the switch indicate when the battery is depleted, when it is charging and when the charge is complete. Also included is a thin, draw-string pouch. Based on prior experience, I am hopeful that this model will be as durable, reliable and long-lasting as each of my prior Norelco shavers. Notably, this is the first Norelco shaver that I have ever owned which is not manufactured in the Netherlands. This model is manufactured in Indonesia. It is very reasonably priced. Based on my favorable experience thus far, I recommend the Norelco 2500 rotary shaver.

    Gets the job done

    I have used the Philips Norelco Shaver 2500 S1311/82 for a week now, and it is a nice shaver. The battery is supposed to last 45 minutes, on one charge. So far, it has not had to recharge. From the beginning, it sounded slow, but it cuts better than my last electric shaver, so the speed doesn't seem to matter.

    My prior electric shaver was straight and didn't form well to my face. This Philips 2500 bends and forms to my chin and neck well, and cuts quickly. It takes less time to shave now, than my other shaver.

    One thing I noticed was that it opens the top lid every time I try to take the cap off. It dumps shavings out, which is a pain. So I just decided to keep it in my drawer without the top cap on. Problem solved.

    Overall I like this shaver. I didn't get skin irritating when switching to the new blades. Right out of the box, I plugged it in, and let it charge until I needed to use it that needy morning. The box says it is a quick charge.

    The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is the design with the cap.

    Best Shave so Far

    This is the first traditional electric shaver I have used. I use to normally use just regular razor blades, and for the last couple of years, I have been using the Philips Oneblade. I have to say that after a couple of weeks of using this I much prefer it to the Oneblade, which I had been thoroughly happy with.

    The most important part is obviously how easy does it complete the shave, and I feel this is much easier than the Oneblade. It gets just as close, and I have to say much closer at the jawline than the other shaver/blades I have used. It takes me far less time to complete the shave, and again all the while feeling much closer. Now, the instructions say to give your face about 20 days of using this shaver exclusively to allow your skin/beard a chance to get used to the blades on the shaver. The first shave I had with this went great, and I had no irritation after. The second one was during a few days off of work, and I had about a week’s worth of growth, and that one was a bit rough. The shaves right after with just a couple of days of growth have gone much smoother. I think this works much better if you are shaving every couple of days as opposed to allowing a week to go by between shaves.

    Something that I really like is that this shaver is much quieter than Oneblade. I don’t mind shaving even while my wife is still sleeping. It’s quiet enough that I feel like it will not wake her. The last thing that I really enjoy about using this shaver is that your whiskers aren’t going to go all over the place, like with the Oneblade. When I use the Oneblade the cleanup is annoying, whiskers all over the sink, counter, and my hands and arms. This shaver captures 99% of those whiskers and allows you to open the shaver head to dispose of them after. Cleanup is so much easier and faster.

    I can wholeheartedly recommend using this shaver. Easy to use, close shave, little to no irritation, quiet, and quick cleanup. Water-resistant so a quick rinse helps to keep it clean, the charge lasts a long time so if I forget to charge it I don’t have to worry if it’s ready for the next shave. I would be ok with leaving the charger at home if I was going to be making a quick weekend trip.

    A great razor that excels at its price point

    I have tried A LOT of electric razors over the years, and I am quite picky. I have a horrific combination of coarse hair and sensitive skin that is prone to ingrown hairs and 'pizza neck' from shaving with a blade or when it is exposed to the electric nibbling gerbils that some companies would have the audacity to call an electric razor. This razor has passed my test and is going to stay in my collection!

    Some pros that I love about it are that the whole razor, not just the blade head, is washable. Thus, shaving in the shower is a go for those who prefer. I would not fully submerse this, though. I also appreciate the pop-up trimmer. I maintain a tight beard around my jaw line, so having this trimmer built into it allows me to keep that edge going. I will say, I have pretty nappy hairs and this pop-up trimmer, although useful, does not quite have the horsepower that my Norelco 7000 does for buzz-sawing its way through my steel wool facial hair. The trimmer otherwise finds use in picking up the small hairs that the main blades miss. Your facial hair has a grain, just like wood, and sometimes hairs will grow against or opposite of the normal grain. The trimmer is great for spot trimming those hairs.

    The blades themselves are gentle, efficient, and achieve a closer shave than anything else I have. If I had to pick just one razor as a man who shaves his whole face, this would definitely be the one. This razor is definitely staying in my rotation for getting that close, date-night level shave on the neck without suffering through pizza-neck the next day (or even later the same day) like I always have with blades. Buy this with confidence.

    Smooth, Gets the Job Done

    So after reading up about this shaver I saw that this company tells you to give your beard around 2-3 weeks to adjust to its style, but I saw a difference immediately. I do suspect it may even be a closer shave as my face gets used to it. I initially thought it was the same as every other shaver I have ran through over the years, but a huge difference happened with this one. I usually get little blisters that look like a rash on my neck after I do my usual shave, but this was the first time I didn’t get those. To be honest, I think I still find the foil shavers still shave a bit closer, but this shaver does go on quite smooth, its easy to use, and has no vibration.

    One other thing I found that I liked with the Norelco was the thin cord as I actually prefer thinner cords that don’t work against me while shaving. The best part about this is that there is no battery to charge at the end of the cord which is a definitive PLUS. One other issue I would say is a “con” is that there is no case. This is a more expensive shaver I’d say and I’ve seen cheaper ones come with a case, but that’s just a personal preference. It definitely gets the job done so I will see how it holds up over the next few months.

    Sometimes less is more...

    The Philips Norelco 1100 series Electric Shaver is what one might call a no-thrills shaver. No battery (it’s corded), no turbo shave mode, and no built in blue tooth speaker or Alexa commands (would someone really want to talk to their shaver, anyway?). But at just under $30.00, it’s a very competent shaver well worth considering.

    With the 1100 series, you get a cover for the tri-blade system, a power cord, and well, that’s pretty much it. Sorry – no carrying case. Due to a lack of battery, The black color is generically appealing, and it feels VERY lightweight… almost cheap. But the build quality is fine, and it shaves just as closely as some of the rechargeable models that cost three times as much, and is quieter than some costing more. A well-placed button pops the top open allowing for quick cleanings of the blades (or replacement when due), and when unplugged, it can handle splashes for that rinsing.

    It’s worth noting that if you are trying this type of shaver and are coming from a hand-held razor or another type of razor, that Philips in their literature asks that you give this 3 weeks for your skin and beard to adjust to a new grooming system. They say at first, you may not think it’s cutting as close, or it may even irritate your skin a little, but again, ask for people to give it 3 weeks to adjust. I’ve known people who converted from a regular razor to a circular one who adjusted almost immediately, but also some who had to give it a week or so, so it’s worth pointing this out since again, it is in their enclosed booklet, and in my own use, I’m finding this to be true so far.

    In an age where everything is rechargeable, using a razor with a cord can feel a little cumbersome. But lithium batteries wear out and are expensive. Given the fact this does give you a close shave for a low cost, it may well be worth considering this over more expensive options. My rating is based on what you get for the price, though I will knock off 1 star since they don’t at least include a cheap travel pouch for it (boo). Recommended for price.

    Traditional razor user unimpressed with electric

    Evaluating this product reminds me why I’m not an electric razor type user. I just couldn’t get a close shave, and had to press firmly over the same area trying to get close to the skin.

    My son gets rash with regular razor blades, and is a big fan of electric razors, though he prefers a rechargeable Li-ion battery, and other amenities like Turbo mode.

    Unfortunately this unit falls flat for me. I normally wear a goatee but without the precision of clean straight lines I’m just not an electric razor guy, so don’t let my aversion negatively affect your decision on this product.

    PROS

    ———

    + affordable

    + Light weight

    + simple to operate, plug and push

    + dust cap included

    CONS

    ———

    -no rechargeable battery

    -feels very cheap and unbalanced in hand

    -can’t detail shave, I had to finish with my regular Harry’s blade

    Finally- A shaver my dad would buy!

    As a 67 year old man who is fat (- hey - it is what it is.) and has a flabby throat, I have a problem getting a close shave. I've used the "blade" system for years - 1 blade, 2 blades, etc. Still not a close shave and I had to keep going over a couple areas several times. So, I chose to only shave once a month. Grew the beard, then used a pro-style hair trimmer, then a blade in the shower. Obviously. not a good look. I had tried battery-operated and '"charged" systems, but I found them a pain. My dad's old Norelco was the best, but parts were obsolete. I wanted a plug-in that was inexpensive but gave a great shave. Well, try to find one. I DID!! The Philips Norelco - 1100 is wonderful. On my first shave, I hardly knew it was on as it was so quiet. Not like when everyone knew when my dad was shaving! It gave a great close shave. I then waited 4 days to shave again, Another great shave! Easy to hold, easy to clean, easy to reach those tough areas and easy to want to shave. I'm now allowed out of the house again (yea!), but with co-vid I'm not going anywhere!! But; my face is smooth! I highly recommend the Philips Norelco 1100 shaver! Us old guys gotta stick together!

    Average electric shaver but budget friendly

    This is an average electric shaver IMHO. I've never used one before, so I was excited to try this one. Since it was my first time using an electric shaver, I didn't know what to expect. My cousin uses one all the time, so he recommended I try it. Honestly, I'm not very much thrilled about it and would stick to the traditional shaver but that is my personal opinion. It also doesn't provide as much close shave as I like. No matter how hard I press it to my skin, I just couldn't get it close. Maybe I wasn't using it the right way but that was my experience. One other complaint about it is that it's not battery operated and has to be plugged in to be used which is another let down for me. For the price of $30, it's okay for someone who uses electric shavers but it's not my thing.

    works well, but instructions are by pictures.

    Shaver works well, but instructions were by pictures without English directions. Since this was the first time owning a Braun it took a while to figure out how to clean it.

    They are recommending that new shaver foil needs to be replaced every 2 years. Was disappointed that it was only supposed to last such a short time and no second part supplied.

    Close enough for me but u will feel slight stubble

    Works well better than I thought. I started getting ingrown hairs all over my legs as to where I can no longer shave my legs with a razor, too close of a shave for my skin. This is definitely my new best friend. Gets close but not like a razor close shave but great and I don’t have to be in the shower. There is another one that works just as good for $10 less. Yes I have both of them. Would but again and again

  • Review by Neubauerjoseph, 10 out of 10
    much improved verions compared to the old one

    So I bought the last version which was back in 2015. While it was good when it was new the batter would only last like enough for me to shave my wife's legs about 40-60% of the way. This new one is much better has 60 minutes of batter and it is more flexible. The only bad thing about this product is that it has a stand charger so there might be many places where you cant plug it in due to space.

    Great razor, lousy plug

    As a razor it works well, I haven't tired it wet though. I would give it 5 stars, but the plug is stupid. There is a wallwart that the razor gets plugged directly into. In my bathroom there isn't enough space between my outlet and the cabinet to put the razor. I ended up getting a short extension cord, plugging the wallwart into that and then the wallwart and razor can sit on my counter.

    Not close enough...

    I wasn't satisfied with my purchase. The shaver did not provide a close shave (with or without the comb attached). There is too much space between the comb and razor.

    In addition, it is pretty loud so you can't be discreet when using it.

    However, the colors were nice.

    It's a shaver, doesn't have great warranty

    This shaver works fine. It sits on the charger to charge and is sensitive to being set on it just right (second charger). My first charger did not work so had to go through warranty process to get a new one. I had to pay for the shipping which I think is wrong so not impressed with Panasonic in that respect.

    Good but was expecting more

    I've always trusted Braun shavers and when it came time for a new one I again chose Braun. This works okay and is easy to clean with its "flow through" design for washing. However, I'm disappointed by all the work I have to do to get a clean shave. For one thing, the guard around the cutter head is too wide, which makes it difficult to reach places like under my nose and the crease in my chin. Even on what should be easy-to-shave areas such as my neck I often find it necessary to use a Phillips One Blade as a pre-shave for some parts of my face and neck. I don't have a heavy beard and shave daily, so I can't believe the shaver is being overworked. Again, this works good... but being Braun I would have thought it would do better.

    Great For Bald Heads

    Since I am bald, I need a razor that excels at giving me a whole head shave. This style of razor does just that. I usually only shave my head 3 or 4 times a week, and with this razor I am easily able to shave my head and neck.

    The rubberized grip makes it comfortable to hold and use. It shaves almost as close as a manual blade. This is important to me because I have stopped using a manual blade because I got tired of occasional cuts from them. This razor is also great for times when I am in a hurry and just need a quick clean up.

    The pop up trimmer works well for creating clean lines at the edges of my beard.

    The battery is rated to last for about 1 hour when fully charged. I have been using it 3-4 times a week and I didn’t have to recharge for about 3 weeks.

    Included is a storage bag and cleaning accessories. I really like that it includes oil because that can make a difference in cutting performance if used.

    Not for me, but might work for others

    I have been on this journey to find the best electric razor; I realize that this might be highly subjective. Everyone has different skin sensitivity, hair growth pattern, hair texture, etc. I have found a few that have seemed to work well, unfortunately this was not one of those.

    A razor should do two things really well; easily trim down your chin whiskers and give your skin little to no irritation. The first time I used this shaver I had gone a couple of days without shaving, this is normal for me. I generally shave 2 to 3 times a week, as I don’t feel like my beard grows very quickly.

    So, with 2 days' worth of growth on my face and neck, I attempted to use these. After finishing the first shave, the area under my chin and neck felt like I had a dozen paper cuts. There was no blood, but it felt like a bunch of tiny cuts all burning. The skin stayed red and irritated for a few minutes, but the pain persisted for most of that day. Most razors say that you might feel irritation on your first few shaves, so I knew that I needed to persist.

    This is a good time to mention that I have been shaving exclusively with electric razors for the last 3 years, so I feel like my skin has already been accustomed to using these types of razors. I continued to use just this shaver for the next couple of weeks, which was a total of 6 shaves. While my neck and chin didn’t have the same intensity of cut feeling as the first, it was still uncomfortable. Another thing that I experienced is that sometimes it felt like the shaver was just yanking the hairs off. The hair pulling sensation happened often, even if I attempted to shave more frequently so the hairs did not have a chance to get too long.

    Aside from that, the build quality of the razor seemed decent, the only exception here being that the pop-up trimmer didn’t really snap back down into place and would sometimes prevent the guard from snapping on. I also found it unusual that there was no light to show charging. The battery life seemed great; I went over a week without having to charge it.

    Like I said at the beginning of this, comfort and closeness of a shave is subjective since everyone has a different face. I can only say that for my face, I don’t think this is the one for me. It might work great for someone else.

    It's a basic shaver with line trimmer on back. No bells or whistles. Just the basics. not waterproof or wireless charging. Good beginners shaver to learn on and or travel shaver,

    It comes with a travel bag and a few brushes to clean with. It works really well and doesn't pull while using. Overall I'd recommend it to others looking for their first shaver

    Bump free, strong battery and clean shaving

    This Wahl shaver works greats on the face and leaves no bumps at all only if you keep the beard not too high. I used also to cut my hair since we are home-bound due to COVID-19, actually, it cleans well my necklines and leaves the area smooth. It has been two weeks since I used it and it stills operating which appears that the battery lasts long. My only wish that Wahl would have added a light battery indicator that shows the percentage or even level of the battery before the next charge other than that, it is great and does shave pretty well. I loved the fact that this shaver is made in the US.

    I do not recommend I'm really dissapointed

    I had gifted this product to my father as a late Christmas present. When he used it the first time it was perfect. He liked that the product did leave him bald. But after using it on the second time the blade started to cut him. I didn't get no warranty I'm really disappointed that it didn't even last a month. I have never encountered products that got damaged right away. Now I have to throw away $57.32 to the trash. So maybe the product was damage or its actually sensitive that it damages right away. So maybe try to put warranty on products likes this. Here are some pictures of my dads head. You have to zoom in to look at the cuts. You can tell his skin is irritated.

    Very Well Designed Electric Razor!

    The Wahl Bump Free Electric Razor is the best electric razor that I have used. It is the first one of it’s kind that I have ever tried and it is much more aggressive and capable compared to the old 3 circle type with a flat head. I have been using it almost exclusively just because it is so much quicker and easier to use compared to using a razor and shaving cream. It gets everything off really well everywhere except for some spots under the jawline. For some reason, I have trouble getting a really close shave in spots in that area. It’s not too big of a deal just not quite as good as a razor with shaving cream. Maybe over time, I will figure out how to do better there I am not sure. I know they said something about giving yourself time to get used to it if you are switching in the instructions. I am not quite sure if that means my facial hair my ability with the tool or both. Regardless, I am very impressed with this razor it is very powerful and does a great job for an electric razor. I definitely think that the design of it is superior to others I have used and just out of pure convenience I have picked it up to shave every time I needed to since I acquired it. One time last week I used a razor with shaving cream after using this to get the hard to eliminate jawline hair and to see if it would shave any closer overall. With the exception of getting the jawline hairs, I did not notice my face being smoother anywhere else. Whether you are looking to switch over completely to an electric or just want to have another alternative for when you are in a rush the Wahl Bump Free Razor is a great choice that is equipped with a slide-up trimmer built into the back that also works well and is easy to use and access.

    Works well on SENSITIVE SKIN, recommend.

    This Razor is very strong, yet small enough to be easily portable. It cuts hair down to an extremely short length leaving behind a smooth face.

    I unfortunately have extremely sensitive skin and suffer from facial razor bumps so I scrutinize shaving products as I must be very careful to avoid rash and bumps. Using this Wahl razor gave me a soft face but not so much a soft neck.

    I had previous razor bumps on my neck that when shaved over created a rash that was painful. Overall, this is a great razor when used on flat surfaces, but difficult to use in the nooks and bends in the neck. Still, a pretty great razor that left me with a youthfully smooth face.

    PROS

    + Powerfully demonstrates battery strength

    + Long-Hair Trimmer is convenient

    + Bag is convenient for easy storage

    + Rechargeable battery, great charge

    + Extremely close shave

    CONS

    -the Long-Hair Trimmer pull-out switch is difficult to activate

    -Loud, but understandable give the power

    -Unit is not rinsable, tricky removing head to clean

    -Left neck rash on my sensitive skin

    CONCLUSION

    Despite the slight neck rash, the Wahl Bump-Free Rechargeable Foil Shaver clocks in as a Recommended Buy.

    Good way to try out a foil shaver...

    Favorably compares to a rotary, actually better for softer skin.

    I have been using a rotary shaver for a few years and wanted to give this foil shaver a try to see how they compared. Several reviews have mentioned a “breaking in” period before they got a close and pull-free shave, and I think that’s normal any time you switch from blade shaving to an electric – whatever type you use. I had no issues with the foil shaver, and I think that is because my skin was already used to an electric. I must say that the foil head has much less hair-pulling and gives a slightly closer shave. This model is not built for wet shaving, so I was honestly surprised that a dry shave could get so close.

    Please be advised that using this daily will minimize the hair pulling and provide the best shave. Both my rotary and this Wahl foil shaver do not like having to deal with 3 days of growth, so grab it and give a quick shave even on those days that you don’t particularly need to shave for appearances. The upside of this is you can grab the shaver and give yourself a quick going-over when going to the kitchen to make some coffee, having your morning constitutional, or out walking the dog. If you have not shaved for a few days, don’t expect a “pull free” experience – especially if you have sensitive skin.

    The trimmer is OK but you need to take your time getting it seated properly. Not the most powerful for cutting barbed wire sideburns or ear hair but works OK for a touch-up.

    Cleaning takes some practice, as with all devices. You want to take your time and be careful with the foil head until you get the hang of the cleaning. Popping it up and giving a good puff pretty much takes care of it - as long as you do that after each shave to keep from getting any buildup inside the head. The shaver is not made to get wet, so doing that little “daily puff” is important to keep the heads clean. There is an assortment of brushes for a good cleaning when needed and keep the little bottle of oil handy as the blades work much better (and quieter) if you put a drop of lubricant on every so often. There is a nice little case to keep everything together, so you don’t lose track of the cleaning brushes, foil tool, and the blade lubricant.

    One last thing - OK guys I really need to tell you that if you get up before your partner and are going to shave while they are still in bed asleep – do not. Take the shaver and go to another room – it is a powerful little machine but doggone it does make some noise. There is a story behind this, but you probably don’t need me to tell it….

    Overall, considering the price point I would say this is a good way to see how you and a foil shaver get along – particularly if you have sensitive skin. The 4 stars are not a criticism, as this is not the top-of-the-line shaver so there are some things missing that you will find on the more expensive models, like battery charge light, dry/wet shaving, quieter motor, and larger cutting heads. If you like the results and then want to make more of an investment – maybe then get the "5 Star" high-end foil shaver to keep at home for daily use and move this one to the car or office for use when you are “running late” or “working late” during the work week.

    Stay safe!

    Don’t bother waiting your money

    Had it for less than 4 months and it already broke. The pin that turns the shaver on/off broke in less than 3 months after purchase. You can remove the cover and turn it on/off by hand but the blades won’t spin even though you can hear the motor spinning.

    I have paid a kings ransom for "better" Brands

    I have paid as much as $300 for electric shavers that practically wash your dishes. OK, maybe just the shaver. The price and the cheaper materials used had me concerned when I first opened the packaging. The I turn on the fully charged shaver. It sounded like it was barely spinning. My confidence was shook. I feared my morning shaves would take longer and not be as smooth. Then I shaved. It took half the time and got a much closer shave than I have gotten in several years. Don't get me wrong, I do miss the charge status of my shavers of the past. If I forget to charge the shaver, I can get a rude awakening of only half a shave. So far though, it holds a charge for a weeks worth smoothness. The nose trimer is nice. I have not ventured into cutting my own hair, or sculpting a beard. So, I cannot comment yet on the other two attachments. The stand is somewhat clever, yet not the most stable. Five stars when the price is considered. Five stars even without, because price always has to be considered.
