Poor quality blades give rubbish shave after only a few months. Avoid.
on 23 July 2015
Always used Philips, but cost of replacement heads means I generally just buy a new one when the old one stops cutting. This might be a little more expensive, but if I didn't I'm sure that the old one would just pack up as soon as I buy replacement blades. This buy new theory has always worked well, and the blades last for a good 18 months, but this time after about three months I found myself having to spend more and more time scrapping away to get a half decent shave. Now it's impossible to get any sort of shave, so can only imagine they are sending substandard heads out on new shavers to get you to buy replacements more often? Anyhow, have now ordered a foil type shaver to see if I can get on with them; the replacement blades seem much cheaper than the Philips rotary at least. I won't be buy Philips any more, after 40 years.
