Frustrating, 23 July 2008
I bought this about 8 months ago after my old reliable Phillips shaver finally packed in. It is without doubt the most frustrating shaver I've ever had. Whilst I could easily shave off 2-3 days worth of growth in less than 5 minutes with my old shaver, this takes at least 12-15 minutes to clear a day's worth, and even then there are odd hairs sticking up which refuse to go without another 3/4 minutes worth of trying from every direction and with every type of head (and sometimes not even then)! The foils are also very fragile and I'm currently on my second one, and that's developed a few gaps which, needless to say, scratch like mad. I'll have to stick with it for a bit as I can't afford a new shaver yet, but when I can, I'm going back to Phillips.
