Feels cheap for the price
on 3 November 2013
This shaver is marked as "wet and dry" but, used as a dry shaver, it is rather rough and uncomfortable. There is less pivoting/flexing in the head mounting than for a plain dry shaver. I had thought that was because the unit had extra sealing so that it can be used as a wet shaver and rinsed under the tap, but water still gets into the casing and drains out through the recharging socket. This is not a fault (it is mentioned in the manual) but it is a little disconcerting and means you may have to wait until it is dry to recharge. Given that the recharging takes up to 8 hours, this doesn't add to the user friendliness.
Used as a wet shaver gives a much improved and more comfortable result compared to dry use but it is still not impressive. The result is about as smooth as a more expensive Philips dry shaver that I currently use, but with a lot more messing around with shave gel etc. The box carries a label advertising "90% less nicks and cuts vs. blade razor" but a twin-blade safety razor on a wet shave easily beats this shaver for quality.
