This gives a good close shave, is light weight, and extremely quiet.
Like several other reviewers have mentioned, a safety cap for the top 3 blades would of been a nice addition to help protect the outer blades, Philips missed a simple cheap trick here imo, but the supplied semi solid case does help here I guess to balance.
I did try the plastic safety cover from my old 5000 series, but it doesn't fit, the 9000 series heads are slightly larger, looking at the 5000 and 9000 side by side, the 9000 series heads appear much larger, but are actually only a few mm difference, an apparent optical illusion maybe.
Im not saying this shaves as closely as a high end wet shave blade, but comes as close as ive ever had an electric shaver do so, I have dry shaved with this, had no after burn or red neck syndrome like the old 5000 shave gave me after a few uses, and have also tried this wet shaving in the shower using foam, which gave an even closer smoother feel.
The supplied cleansing brush I used just before a shower shave, using a facial cleanser I use regularly, it provided a lovely soft experience, I will look forward to using it again, but wont use it every time I shave, more for when I want to feel a little more pampered and have more time available (my wife calls me a tart, but wont complain one iota about my face being so smooth after i have used it).
If your not sure about the cost, id advise don't buy instantly, unless the price is low, in the 2 weeks roughly i spent weighing up which option to go for, this items price changed so many times, sometimes hugely, I bought it from a 3rd party amazon seller ( PANDY ), it arrived quickly and safely, about 6 days ahead of its due delivery date (via Royal Mail), which is always nice.
Ive not tried the side burn trimmer yet, but have attached it to the shaver, each different head simply pulls off using slight effort, and doesn't work free or fall out during usage.
Well made, super value, very very happy
- The electric motor is fairly powerful, compared to Remington that has a very weak motor
- It shaves closer than dry shave with Brown 5 and 7 series
- it’s incredibly quiet
- Battery life is fairly good and battery indicator is quiet adequate in the context of long battery life.
- It is rather unsuitable for dry shave as it does not glide easily on dry skin.
- Cleaning is a concern
- The trimming head is supplied separately which makes it rather inconvenient to use.
- The shaver incorporates internal drain channels both in the unit and the head. The internal draining system is not accessible for cleaning (rodding etc.) and it can be clogged up with built up of shaving gel / foam if you are not careful. Dried shaving gel around moving parts will impend their movement and might put extra stress on the motor leading to breakdown.
The shaver is placed upside down on the cleaning station which means it only works on the blade end of the head and not the shaft in the rest of the body.
- Cleaning station is poorly designed and cannot prevent the cleaning spirit from escaping to the thin air. Cleaning operation stops working as soon as the spirit level drops by 10 to 15% requiring replacement of the cleaning tank, making it expensive waste. You may consider topping it up with rubbing alcohol or surgical spirit but implication of using either is unknown to me.
Despite all the shortcomings it is a great shaver for WET shave.
Philips offers an excelllent warranty that I had to use on my first shaver braking down after a year use. Should you decide to purchase this shaver make sure you register it on the day one in order to be covered..
