on 23 May 2015
I bought this as a present to myself in September 2013.
Initially very impressed with quality, how quiet it was and jet cleaning system.
Now the bad news. After 1 year I no longer get a close shave. It barely touches stubble on chin and can take 10 minutes when I used to do it in 2.
I tried looking into replacing the heads. 55 quid!!! Got really pissed off with this. This is a really expensive running cost if heads need replacing every year.
Worse. They have stopped making replacement heads and only sell inferior heads which have got poor reviews.
All these 5 star reviews must be from people using the shaver within the first couple of months. My shaving experience is after 1.5 years.
So my advice is look at the bigger picture and don't be enticed (as I was) into buying what seems to be a nice product.
Philips are very crafty with this built in obsolecence.
I have always used Philips but I am going to switch to Braun.
