5 out of 5 eggsBest Electric Shaver I have ever owned.

Pros: It gives the closest smoothest shave I have ever gotten fro an electric razor. It is very quite and cleaning is a snap. The edge trimmer is very good as well.

Cons: There are about eight hairs right below my nose it just can't reach. Ah, the vagaries of old age. The only thing I have found that works there is an old fashioned straight razor. Alas, a lot of good money for eight hairs. I enjoy it however.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this razor to anyone male ore female.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product and nice service

Pros: Product is easy to set up and very smooth after shave. I really like 60 minutes battery life and exact digital monitor. Better than the higher model.

Cons: Why there is no cleaning system for this 8800 model?
Upset about replacement of shave head. See a lot of unsatisfied review about 12 plus. Why philip try to destroy its own perfect products in this way?
