It's not for me
on 7 March 2014
I bought this shaver from Amazon in January so I have had several weeks using it and feel I can offer my honest opinion.
The shaver is comfortable to use and it does give me a good shave.
Shaving with this shaver is so slow compared to my previous Philishaves. The motor seems to be labouring and I find that sometimes I am moving too fast and the shaver has to catch up. The hair collection area is a joke it fills up in no time and I feel this contributes to the labouring of the motor. I sometimes have to empty it and then carry on shaving. The pouch is also a very cheap product which, I feel ofers no protection to the shaver. To charge, the charge cradle must be used. No simple plug in and shave option here. The shaver is suited to being sat on a shelf in your bathroom with the charge cradle ready to accept the shaver. Not for packing in your suitcase and travelling about.
I feel I have wasted my money purchasing this model. I wish that I had bought the older type cheaper model, complete with plug in cord, proper carry case and larger hair collector.
These are my views and what I have found using this model. I realise that others will find it ok for them.
If you have tough hair, a strong growth, want to use whilst travelling. My advice would be. Forget this shaver.
