To Look Sharp Every Time You Shave
on July 31, 2012
Some times simple is better and that is the case with the Philips Norelco PT720. This is a basic, down to earth, electric razor that straight out of the box does what it is suppose to; deliver a good shave. So what if this electric razor does not have a side burn trimmer. In all of the 25+ years that I have been shaving with an electric, I probably can count the number of times I have used the trimmer on one hand. I doubt that most men reading this review use the side burn trimmer on their current razor!!
When you turn this razor on for the first time after charging overnight, one will notice that it has a powerful sounding motor that delivers performance. The razor glides fairly easily over the face and I found that it worked exceedingly well on the lower neck and jaw line which are problem areas for me.
I must confess that I did not purchase this great razor from Amazon. There is an available Internet coupon that can be used for $10 off on the purchase of any Philips Norelco, which I took advantage of. Since I was replacing a very expensive Norelco which performed poorly, I did not want to make a major investment in another electric that might be a "dud."
So in the words of the old Gillette Super Blue Blades jingle: to look sharp every time you shave, grab the PT720.
Update 2 Sep 12 - This razor continues to demonstrate why it is a great bargain. The initial charge lasted 25 days which was beyond my expectation.
