As a long time user of a mains braun shaver i was hesitant to buy a cheap battery shaver,however when the braun finally bit the dust,I read the previous review,and thought i would give it a try.It runs very happily on 2 aa rechargeable batteries that are the same as my digital camera,gives a excellent shave,there is a philips 2yr warranty,and the shave gets better after a week or two.There is no long hair trimmer,but inspite of this its a definite thumbs up from me.

I bought one on a whim, then another, and then an HQ6695. I had not used Philishave for years but found this little HQ40 amazingly good for its price and fits neatly in the pocket. I was surprised how slowly the cutters rotated but how well they cut and the smooth finish.....so all in all, a very good buy at this price and a change to test drive the Philishave rather than get suckered into over-priced electronic-laden gadgets which really have exactly the same task as this little thing: to shave and leave a smooth finish on a man's face.....I do not know why shavers are getting to the £100 mark when televisions cost less

For the last ten years I've used a blade and have used a three head shaver. I now commute to work by bike and leave this at the office.
The shave is very good. None of the redness that I used to have with my old three head shaver. I've used it every day for the last two weeks and the batteries are still fine. If your considering changing to a Philips shaver why not try this for a tenner before taking the plunge with a more expensive model. Give your skin the chance to adjust though and don't dismiss this product if the first shave is not what you expect, after a week the quality of the shave has improved. Recommended

This is such unbelievable value for money! The batteries last for ages, it's easy to use, completely safe, gives a great shave, and even looks fantastic in its little red plastic coating if that's what you're interested in! What's the point in buying a fancy expensive one when this does nearly as good a job! I won't be going back to razors ever again after this!

I have had this shaver for over a year now. I have had troubles with wet shave for all my life. I bought it to try the electric shaver for the first time, before buying a more expensive one. It gives me a shave not much different from Mach 3 minus the cuts and neck line rash. I use NiMh rechargable batteries which last for over 3 weeks. For about a tenner it is an excellent buy.

You spend £9.99 and you'd think you'd get a shaver that would leave you with more stubble than Fatima Whitbread but no, this shaver works almost as well as the Philips top of the range shaver that I've managed to break after 2 months of use. I've done the wife test and the shave passed in style so what are you waiting for? I, like other reviewers bought this as a temporary solution but on intial results this could look set to replace it's very big and very expensive brother!

As a regular phillips mains shaver user I wanted a lightweight travel shaver and the HQ40 is exactly that. Despite its price and the fact it is battery operated it gives really good shave and seems smoother on the skin than my old philips mains shaver. If you skin suffers from wet shaving and you are thinking of taking the plunge with an electric shaver I would recommend you buy this shaver for a trial run - I doubt you will be disappointed.

I bought one of these 6 months ago for a Tenner, mainly as a stopgap. I've been using it ever since. Does what it says on the box, and the AA batteries last forever (I use NiMH rechargeables and have only just recharged for the second time!). Much more compact for travelling than other Philishaves. The only slight downside is that it's not quite as efficient or smooth on the skin as some of the top-of-the-line models. But value for money is second to none.
