Great shaver! great Price!, 20 Jun 2007
Having never used an electric shaver before, I didn't want to splash out on an expensive model and then find I never use it.
So after extensive research I opted for one which seemed to be value for money (best time to buy is around Father's Day as they seem to drop in price significantly). I didn't like the way the Philips looked.. and thought this model seemed to have good functionality and looks.
I was very very sceptical.. having a fairly tough beard, I didn't think an electric shaver would get anywhere close as a wet shave.. however, I was astonished with the F510.
It was very close.. ok, not as close as a wet shave (I would give it a 8.5/9 out of 10 when compared to a wet shave) but good enough for work and the weekend... Plus being a novice at this electric shaving I'm sure it will get better.
I don't think I would use an electric shaver all the time (tempting that it is!!) because I still enjoy a wet shave and will alternate between the two depending on time.
However, in terms of convenience this model seems to be excellent and I would highly recommend it.
