3.0 out of 5 stars far to expensive and not as good as expected...., 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips SensoTouch RQ1251 Gyroflex 3D Electric Shaver with Jet Clean and Charge system (Personal Care)
I have a medical condition so though i would make the move from wet to electric shaving and although i had bought a cheaper Philips shaver before This is the first high end shaver i have bought. After reading reviews from amazon and which best shaver awards i settled for what is considered to be the best. Well so far i am a bit disappointed... I had some view that due to the incredibly high price and reviews technology had moved on in the world of dry shaving but sadly this is not true. So far i fail to see what all the hype is about this item. It sadly does not and never will come close to wet shaving in any form. Yes its true you can wet shave with it and it feel a bit better than dry but after a weeks use i had to have a good old wet shave to remove long neck hairs to feel as if i have had a proper shave.
A for the so named jet clean system DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY...As an electrical engineer i was longing to see how this item worked. Could i see any jets as the name implies NO. Is it ultrasonic bath that cleans jewelry to perfection No. It a boys toy that simply lowers the shaver into the bath and switches the shaver motors on and off , the heads of the shaver then move the jet clean liquid around the bath. For £70 less i could have ran the shaver in a bowl of liquid to gain the same results. I contacted Philips but so far have not received a reply... Admittedly its not all bad if you are used to a dry shaver its probably good if not don't spend as much money as i did. You will be disappointed.....

To be fair to Philips, if this is the first electric shaver you have used after wet shaving, you would be likely to be disappointed with *any* electric shaver. Electric shavers will never give as good a shave as a wet shave, although it takes time for your skin to adapt and results should improve with time. A fairer comparison would be whether this shaver is better than other electric shavers in a similar price band, but my experience is only of a much older Philips shaver, which I've always been very pleased with.

There is not an electric shaver on the market, wet or dry. that will shave as close as a razor as the blades of an electric shaver have a foil guard between the cutting edge and skin.
