Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My favourite electric shavers have always been Philishaves which I used for many reliable years so I had high hopes for this product; the RQ1280. In general I like it but sadly it doesn't match expectations.

This shaver is supposed to represent "the ultimate shaving experience", I disagree, but although it doesn't match that claim it still does do a pretty good job. However, would you really want to fork out £270 for the sake of a pretty good job?

For example, I've wet shaved for a number of years and I expect to not feel stubble regrowth for around 10-11 hours and, although the skin is smooth after shaving with the RQ1280 (similar to wet shaving), I can distinctly feel the regrowth after 7-8 hours. To put this another way; when I wet shave in the morning it's fine for most of the rest of the day (c.9-10 pm), but when I shave at the same time with the RQ1280 instead I feel the need to shave again much earlier (c.5-6 pm). Therefore, Philips' `Super Lift & Cut' which is meant to cut hairs `below the level of the skin' is not as effective as a wet shave.

The shaving head is best compared to a flower with a 3 petal cluster; each petal (shave head) pivots independently within the shaver head housing, and each of the 3 of these in turn pivots independently too. This is easy flexing is helpful for following facial contours but if you have some stubborn stubble it feels like the shave heads are trying to bend away from the area where they're needed. It's as though Health & Safety had too much say in the design! Nonetheless, I found the best way around this problem is to curve an index finger around the neck of the shaver in order to make the shaver head more rigid and able to be pressed into the skin more effectively if need be.

The shave is excellent or as good as any other Philishave I've had. But on this and some previous similar models, the design team at Philips seem pretty amateurish. It should be all too obvious that a good shaver must be designed to travel. This shaver is certainly not. Where is the charging socket on the bottom of the shaver that would allow an external charger to be plugged in? If it is too expensive to place the charging unit within, then at least a point that would allow an optional external charger to connect. The existing charger stand whilst very nice is for a bathroom shelf only. It is far to flimsy to travel with and will break in no time if you attempt it. I've taken mine back for a refund and got a solid cheaper model with a good old external charger and travel pouch! Come on Philips design team, this is not rocket science! You've maintained this silly flaw for at least two years. Wake up!

I brought this razor as it was supposed to be the best one out there. However after trying it for nearly two weeks, im going to return my to my mach 5 tubro or whatever its called.

The razor feels good to hold, and has a nice rubber coating at the back with a nice display at the front, telling you how long you have left before you need to recharge and if the device needs cleaning and if its locked ( to stop it from turning on in your bag when at airports i guess).
The problem is the head, if you have three 2p coins,put them together, and you're left with a big gap in the middle. So whats cutting your facial hair in that area? nothing is the answer.

When i tried using it as a dry shaver, i found it irritating, it seemed to cut my skin in some areas and felt like i had cut myself shaving with a blade about a million times all over my face.

Wet shaving is better, you simply do all that you do with your normal wet shaver but replace the razor with this.
The problem i found is that in some areas it missed chunks of my facial hair, and some areas it didnt shave close enough.

overall i felt i could have just used my gillette fusion and got the job done with less pain. For some reason you had this sensation of pain and irritation after shaving.

I called philips and they recommended i should return the razor for a refund and choose the kind of razor with a Braun head (two bars).

As Philips customer service said " high price doesnt mean close shave".

I therefore dont recommend

Used the razor Philips RQ1280 SensoTouch GyroFlex 3D Rechargeable Rotary Shaver with great satisfaction for 1 month without recharging (wanted to judge ability to travel without taking charger). On first recharge, the razor went dead. Tried to access the "personalised support" promised for registering on Philips' website, a registration which had taken some time because of its "clunky" performance: no luck. My product did not show and, even after re-registering it, there was no sign of "personalised support". Rang Philips directly and they informed me that there is a special deal for this razor only (why?!) that it can be returned in the first 3 months for replacement but only if I had retained the original packaging - after 1 month's use I had disposed of it. Without the packaging they did not want to know and referred me back to Amazon without any significant effort to determine what the fault was, or to help me.

Amazon's return procedure worked very well and, unlike Philips, left me with the impression that they valued both my custom and brand loyalty.

My overall impressions are: the razor, when working, is excellent; Philips website registration gives an extra year's guarantee but is a badly implemented consumer tracking mechanism; manufacturers' guarantees should be particularly effective in the early months when basic problems are most likely - Philips', despite their "personalised support" claim, is not; Amazon effectively picked up the pieces.
