Provides an Exceptionally Smooth Shave

Philips Norelco's best shave yet, the SensoTouch 3D gives you the ultimate shaving experience. Its GyroFlex 3D system has three dynamic parts that move independently, flexing outward, pivoting around, and tilting inward, following the natural contours of your face.

Also, the UltraTrack shaving heads catch every hair in just a few strokes with three specialized shaving tracks: slots for the long hairs, channels for the longer hairs, and holes for the shortest stubble. And the Patented Super Lift&Cut dual blade system lifts hairs to cut comfortably below skin level. This razor gets the job done without leaving any stray hairs or stubble behind.

Comfortably Shaves--Wet or Dry

With the SensoTouch 3D, you can shave any way you want. The AquaTec seal gives you the option of either a comfortable dry shave or a refreshing wet shave with shaving cream or gel. And the low-friction SkinGlide shaving surface slides smoothly along your skin for a close shave without irritation.

Optimum Control and Precision

Designed for ease of use, the SensoTouch 3D has an easy-to-hold handle with an ergonomic grip for optimum control. The convenient trimmer offers skin-friendly precision for your mustache, goatee, or side burns.

Convenient Touch Screen Display

The SensoTouch 3D has an easy-to-use touchscreen display that shows exactly how many minutes of shaving time remain before the battery needs to be recharged. You can also check whether the battery level, charging status, and the cleaning indicator at a glance. There's even a replacement-head indicator that helps ensure every shave is a close shave.

Cordless, Travel-Friendly Design

The SensoTouch 3D charges in one hour and provides up to 60 minutes (or a maximum of 20 days) of shaving time. A display lets you know how much power remains in the lithium-ion battery and when you need to replace the blades.

The SensoTouch 3D is completely cord free, has a travel lock, and comes with a protective pouch, so you can toss it in your bag, briefcase, or suitcase when you're on the go. Additionally, the razor features a worldwide voltage function that adjusts automatically from 100 volts to 240 volts AC, making the SensoTouch 3D ideal for international travel.

The SensoTouch 3D 1290X/40 is backed by a two-year warranty.

Product Packaging: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
...and I've tried a bunch, both foil and rotary. None have shaved this close with this much comfort. There is absolutely no razor burn. Even when I tried shaving over portions of my neck several times, nothing but a close shave. Beyond that the razor has a good weight and fits comfortably in my hand. The "minutes left" indicator is very convenient. Cleaning is a snap, just pop open the heads and run them under hot water.

Perhaps the biggest selling point is the 45-day money back guarantee. You try it and don't like it, you get your money back.

The down sides... Forget about using this for a "scruffy look"; there's no height adjustment. It's either a close shave or nothing. If you travel and expect to be gone longer than a single full charge (enough for 60 minutes of shaving) then you need to take along the base. The recharger does not plug directly into the razor. The price - $280 is a lot for a razor. And, you can expect to spend $60 every year (or two) for replacement heads.

Truth be told, this will not shave as close as a blade but it will get real close to that. Also, you get the convenience of being able to shave in less time, wherever you are (within reason), and whenever you want.

UPDATE - After using this razor for a while there's a couple things I've noticed that get you an even closer shave. Firstly, like the instructions say, you want to clean the heads after every shave. It's simply a matter of popping open the heads and rinsing them under the tap for a few seconds. Secondly, as I mentioned above, a light touch is the key. With your skin pulled tight you should barely feel the razor touching your face. It may seem like it's not doing much but it really is.

Product Packaging: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
This is my second Norelco 1290x shaver from Amazon. The first one I got was defective since I was not able to turn it on after charging it. I must point out that Amazon was very prompt in replacing the defective shaver. This is what makes Amazon great in my opinion.

Let me say right up front, the 1290x will never match the shave of something like a Gillette Fusion razor. The reason I want an electric shaver is because it is quick and easy to use and it gives a reasonably close shave. The 1290x feels great in the hand, is well constructed and does shave a little smoother and closer than my previous high end Norelco the 6885xl with 9 years of almost daily use, which I am still very impressed with. If only the battery did not die.

PROS

1. newly designed UltraTrack shaving heads are very flexible allowing shaves to be close and comfortable.

2. 1290x body has quality construction, feel and design (very good looking)

3. made in the Netherlands

4. shaves closer than my previous high end Norelco and seems to be a better shaving experience (smoother)

5. feels good in the hand with it's rubberized back and weight distribution (well balanced)

6. good looking motion display as are the useful LED symbols and numbers

7. trimmer works good on sideburns and is easier to aim than previous Norelco

CONS

1. protective sliding plastic heads cover feels like it could scratch the unit, so I am not using it

2. stand is very wobbly on a rough surface because of its suction cup feet

3. cannot be used with a cord when not charged, need to wait 3 to 5 minutes to charge for one shave

4.

Product Packaging: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was a HUGE fan of this shaver when I first received it. In fact, I've preserved my original review of it at the bottom of this one, but I can't believe a costly shaver like this would be dead after only five months of use. Since there is no option to plug this thing in, once the battery is dead, so is the shaver...for good.

The only reason I can think of for this happening is that the instructions warn not to keep the shaver plugged in after it has fully charged, but it takes time to charge, and I don't have the time to sit there and watch it so that I can unplug it immediately afterwards. Since the battery lasts for 60 minutes of shaving, I've only needed to charge it maybe four times since I first got it, but each of those times, it remained plugged in for ten or more hours while I was at work. Seriously though, if keeping it plugged in after it's fully charged four times caused this to happen, that is ridiculous.

So, as amazing as this shaver was for me for five whole months, I now think it's a ridiculous product that everyone should stay far away from.

--------

My original glowing review:

I've been a razor blade man since the moment I began shaving. Over the years, I've tried several mid-range electric shavers (though, to be fair, none in this price range), and I was never impressed. Until now, I'd never found anything that could perform better than a high end razor.

The Norelco 1290 impressed me on the first try. Electric shavers usually suggest that it will take up to three weeks for you to get a better shave because your face needs time to adjust, but the very first outing gave me a cleaner and MUCH more comfortable shave than my trusty Mach 3 razors.
