4 out of 5 eggsOne of the best rotary shavers

Pros: Sharp for a rotary shaver. The multiple rings add effectiveness. Quick charging and can be used with cord if you run the battery down. Very quiet.

Cons: Sometimes too sharp but seems to miss some areas of the face. Will cut skin if you press down too hard. Hard to clean at the base of the spindles.

Other Thoughts: It is a high quality shaver that's not made in a forced labour camp. it is very easy to clean and I like that each head comes out and is easily accessed. it can bite you if you're not careful so use light pressure. Loss of one egg for that. It's an ok shaver and works well.

Pros: Pretty close shave , i did not shave for a week while i waited for this to deliver to see if it could handle a weeks worth of hair growth. bottom line great shave with this model. quick charge time after first initial charge, it can be used corded. can be cleaned under running water. Still made in Holland.

Cons: none it does what its designed to, it gives a pretty close shave. I had an older panasonic cordlesswet/dry foil shaver, never as close as these rotary shavers depends on one's face perhaps.

Other Thoughts: nice- it comes with a travel pouch and cleaning brush and the gray color is nice. i always liked norelco i have a older corded electric wanted to try a cordless model, this is it for the price clean and simple to use. the price of blades seem to be always going up. these are still manufactured in Holland as i remember looking over my grandfather's older model circa 1960's when i was a kid.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: i was a little hesitant about getting another electric shaver as the one i tried 2 years ago was a disaster. fortunately my cash wasnt wasted as this thing works AMAZINGLY. quite a close shave and the trimmer is very convenient, and it performs great while not emptying your wallet.

Cons: can have some problems getting to certain areas on the neck/chin easily, but worst comes to worst you just have to make a few extra passes and everything is great.
No stand.... i was rather disappointed in this but its not a deal breaker

Other Thoughts: i put this thing to work on a few weeks of growth(im lazy) and it came through epicly, norelco will probably be my goto shaving brand from now on cuz of this thing

5 out of 5 eggsI may never let a regular razor touch my face again

Pros: As someone mentioned, it doesn't give a perfect shave, closer to maybe 5 hours growth or so. However, considering how quick, comfortable and clean the shave is, I'll take the miniscule stubble any day.
It's typical for your face to have to get used to the feel of a new razor, but I didn't seem to have much a problem with this shaver. By the second or third use, my face was satisfactorily smooth all over with absolutely zero irritation.
The shaver is very, very subtle when on, hardly more than a small whirring that's only noticeable in a quiet room.

Cons: The head cover fits pretty tightly, causing the comb assembly to sometimes pop off if I'm not careful. They snap right back in place though, so no eggs taken off for that.
Depending on how meticulous you are, and how long it takes to shave with a conventional razor+cream, shaving the whole face as fine as possible with this shaver could take up to a minute longer. I personally have the time to be careful, so no eggs off for that, either.

Other Thoughts: I went from a $10 Remington Titanium (a shaver touted as being as effective as the $50+ shavers) to this, and it's like night and day. The only thing my old Titanium shaved well was the upper lip, and was all but useless for the rest of my face.
Also, I found that using a pre-shave lotion ('Lectric Shave or some generic brand variation) does help in the quality and comfort, as well as making the shave go a little quicker
I'm in the Army, where having a clean face (small mustache permissible but not common) is mandatory, and this shaver makes what was once a less-than-enjoyable part of my morning tolerable. I highly, highly advise all men who want to keep clean-shaven purchase this shaver or one like it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little shaver...

Pros: I really like this little's lighter and much, much quieter than the Norelco shaver I've been using for many years. It shaves close and I would highly recommend it.

Cons: It doesn't come with it's own stand ( fortunately I'm able to use my old one but it looks bad.).

Other Thoughts: Newegg got it to me quickly and in perfect shape. I see it went on sale today for $20 less than I paid last week but such is life. Grab it up won't be sorry!

5 out of 5 eggsGood replacement for razers

Pros: Works as advertised. Mainly use it for my head and it takes less time than a Gillette fusion pro glide. Plus you save a lot of $$$ in cartridges.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with this investment. I wish I could've done it earlier. Being your own barber comes pretty handy when budget is tight :)

Thanks Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Shaves very close and very well. I was amazed at how well this worked. It took no time at all to shave unlike with my old razor.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: My stubble/facial hair isn't very coarse. It's fairly thin so I don't have a huge problem with any razor. BUT this one is awesome.

4 out of 5 eggsNice razor

Pros: Reasonably close shave for an electric. Can use water to clean it off (under the faucet in the sink.)

Cons: The battery is not replaceable by user. No stand with the razor (down one egg.)

Other Thoughts: A nice razor but no stand for it. It will have to be replaced in a few years because the battery will no longer take a charge and is not replaceable by the user. The shave is OK but not great. Better than my last electric razor but not nearly as good as my safety razor.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SHAVER


Cons: Not free ;-)

Other Thoughts: I shave my face Today for the 1st time with this shaver and I love it! I still have the Panasonic shaver but I never liked. Philips shaves nice, and smooth, close to the skin.
Got this one for myself as a Father's Day gift ;-) for $69.00 from newegg deal shocker. I highly recommend this shaver
