This razor is a awesome. It gives a great shave, charges fast easy to clean, has a fast and almost soundless motor and has the really awesome HQ8 blades on it.
I've been buying electric razors for the last 15 years and this razor outshines them all. And for the price it's a steal.

I'm happy with my purchase!

This is the 4th razor I have bought. I really like the Norelco razor and they do give me a good shave quick and fast. I do this every morning (except during deer season) and have only one problem. The battery does not stay charged for 10 days. I followed the directions and charged it for 12 hours before the 1st use and I'm getting maybe 7 days before charging again. But I must say even past Norelco razors have had the same problem. Over all I would recommend this to any one looking to buy and electric razor.

I have had several Norelco razors over the past 10-15 years. I have found that this unit, like most cheap Norelco's. lacks on motor power and thus take longer to get a good shave. This razor has the slowest motor speed of all of the Norelco's I have had. I think to preserve battery life.

I will have to think twice and shop harder when I buy my next razor, perhaps I will give Panasonic a try.

Word to those looking to buy, make sure to check the motor speed and the type of cutting head. The cheap Norelco's will cut slower, not as clean and thus will take longer to get a good shave (15-20 min).

This shaver is a good basic shaver. Relatively quiet (low hum), reasonably good shave given that the blades are new, easy to handle, has a full sideburn trimmer (unlike many other shavers), has a low charge light that blinks when its time to recharge (unlike others), recharges in an hour or so, pretty good on the under-chin area.

The downside is that it is a pain to clean. On a daily basis you just rinse the shaver head (hard to towel dry so I just air dry it). Using a brush does not work well (the design is very complex with many nooks and angles). Weekly or so you have to precisely disassemble the shaver head, which is a pain to do. Like many others, the blades will likely need replacing in about one year and the new blades will cost almost as much as the entire shaver.

I chose it because it has the sideburn trimmer and recharge-needed light and the purchase cost is quite low for an electric Norelco shaver. There is no travel pouch (not needed) and it is a cord/cordless model but the clear plastic shaver head cover (an x-pattern of plastic) is so evident of cost cutting that it is embarrassing.

I switched over to this guy from a Braun 5600 series. Hands down, the Philips has been a much better shave for me. It goes closer than the Braun, covers more area, and is more precise, meaning I don't have to go over the same area twice. This allows me to finish shaving about twice as fast. It is also quieter than the Braun, which has been a very nice bonus.

I lost my other expensive rotary shaver. I was worried about finding another one I'd like since I can't spend a lot this time. Based on the reviews and the price, I went with this inexpensive Phillips shaver. I LOVE IT. It charges fast and it shaves really close. I know when it needs new blades they'll be inexpensive. I rate this shaver 5 stars.

The razor shaves really nice. However, after approximately 2 months use, the battery will not stay charged for more than 1 week. I'm in the process now of finding the correct battery to replace it. Went on Youtube to learn how to do. Quite a process. Disappointed, because the old Norelco 8894XL is still going.

Purchased this for my 89 year old father in a nursing home, diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. He likes it and is now able to shave himself without leaving "rough patches".
