A close shave...
on 14 February 2014
I've had Philips shavers for longer than I can remember and most of them have been pretty good and lasted well with one exception which essentially forced me into buying this model shaver as a replacement..
My ageing Philips RQ1280 was beginning to lose its cutting edge and I decided to splash out on a replacement RQ12 head. I was supposed to change the head every 12 months but I've been using the thing for 4 years on the original head. The difference was stunning... back to a nice smooth face.
Alas, and incredibly irritating, the shaver broke; simply went dead; no power no display, nada; dead as a Do Do.
So I was left with a brand new shaver head and nothing to put it on. It thus made sense to buy another Philips shaver that accepted the same RQ12 head.
This new one, the RQ1250, I can definitely recommend. Gives a lovely smooth shave and does so quickly.
The charging stand is a big improvement on the older type as it's foldable and can be tucked away safely in a suitcase. Some people find the need for a separate charging stand an irritation and `i can see this is the case, but I'm so used to this type of shaver and charger stand that it doesn't particularly bother me. That's the only reason I've given the shaver 4 stars instead of 5.
AS said it has my recommendation and I have a brand new replacement head for it. :-)
