Surprise and delighted.
on 17 June 2014
Some years ago I bought a Phillips electric razor (Phillishave 4870). Although well made I could not get on with it . It was consigned to the cupboard and I went back to a wet shave. Having borrowed my son-in-laws electric razor (an older version of this one) when I was stuck unexpectedly overnight at my daughters I was surprised how much I liked it. I spent hours looking at the different models and reading the reviews. Not wishing to take out a second mortgage to buy one, especially as I was still uncertain, The price being offered for this razor which on paper seemed to fit the bill with its high specification, convinced me to take the risk and order.
To say that I was surprised at how well it performed would be an understatement. Okay, it does not shave as well as a wet shave if you are in a hurry, but take a little time and it is as good. A quick shave, around 1 minute as adequate for me to go through the day. 2 - 3 minutes is usually good enough to see me through into any evening activities. If I wish a 30 second run over will certainly satisfy "her indoors".
I have just been away for 14days and the battery still has plenty of life in it. I reckon I will get at least twenty days from it. Of course it is new so how long I will get this battery life is anyone's guess. I have of course used it wet and with shaving gel both giving great performance. Being able to wash it is a great advantage. I have used the beard attachment after sliding of the comb to trim .
sideburns, nose and ear hairs. works well. Some reviews complained about the on of switch. I have no problems whatsoever.
All in all agreat product. I delighted I took the plunge.
