Does what they are supposed to do
on April 3, 2014
Unless you own some top of the line foil razor that costs several hundred dollars and is made in Germany, these will have to do. These heads are compatible with several different Norelco models. These fit perfectly in my razor. I have been using the original head/blades since I bought the razor over 3 years ago. I have never been able to have ANY electric razor give me an extremely close/clean shave. I use the electric razor to get the primary hair down to a light stubble and then I use a conventional razor to finish up and leave the face ultra smooth. I don't think any Norelco razor will give you a barber shop type shave. I always make sure I maintain the head/blade assembly. I clean them regularly with alcohol and add a drop of razor oil to each blade assembly. I have never really understood the Norelco's floating head assembly. Why is the floating head concept supposed to be so great? I find that a static or non-moving head does a much better job at shaving. I'm sure that this head/blade assembly will last me until the razor batteries die. They can be replaced but by then I will probably just buy a new razor. Foil razors are the best, but they are expensive for the good ones and the replacement parts are expensive. Most electric razors from any brand are made in Asia today. If you really look hard, you can find ones made in Germany or Switzerland.
