Fantastic at tricky curves under the jar line

My last shaver was a dual blade foil, which was always horrible at getting at the concave surfaces under jar line. The first thing I notice is the 3D head really does a great job of getting at those trick spots under the jar line. When I put the shaver to my neck, it feels like I'm being hugged by 3 tiny little palms. Since this shaver is so fantastic at tracking tricky contours, it does a great job of shaving right under the jar line. I do admit it is a bit slower than my old foil shaver, but it does a much better job of shaving.

I purchased this product to replace a Remington one that I've had for a few years and this razor is better in every possible way. It is very powerful but extremely quiet compared to my previous razor. I still find quite a bit of back and forth in order to get all of the stray hairs, but definitely not as much. I also love the flexibility of the shave heads and the option to perform a wet shave. As far as included accessories, I love the cradle it sits in as it keeps it tidy and always fully charged and I also like the included carrying case for travel. Very happy with my purchase.

Great shaver

I have been using a razor for the past 4 years as my last electric shaver caused irritation, I got this Shaver and I am impressed. It shaves close and with little irritation when used with shaving cream, rinses clean and ready to go for the next morning. It took a week to get my skin use to it but that is common with all shavers. Great buy at a cheap price, way below what others were selling it for.

it is nice

the performance is good. the lights in the shaver is very nice. yet the color is not the same with picture, it is all black, I think dark blue is better from my point of view.

close, quiet, quick

Excellent shave, close and quick. Fast charging and keeps the charge a couple of weeks. Wet is even better than the super Dry results.

This shaver is smooth and quiet but slow. I've had Braun shavers for a long time but when I needed a replacement, I found the current models irritating so I decided to try the Philips. Unfortunately it takes considerably longer to get a close shave.

Wasted my money on this

This is a nicely named shaver, and nice design but it really did not do a good job for me. I don't have a lot of facial hair but I do need to shave every other day. This took forever to shave because it would often not catch the hair that I was trying to cut. I switched back to a foil head shaver, triple blade. I've used these in the past and they seem to be much quicker.

Really Impressed

This is the first electric shaver I have purchased in years. Been a believer in the "blade" for 35+ years. Tried electrics here & there but was never really satisfied so always reverted back to using a blade. (well most recently in fact ... "5" blades to be precise) Purchased this 3D technology not knowing what to expect. Sure Consumer Reports has Philips as a top rated shaver but what do they know right? Well apparently they know plenty. Without hesitation I will say this is by far the BEST electric shaver I've ever used. Used it dry for about a week until I gathered the nerve to try it with shaving foam. (couldn't get my head around the concept of using a lubricant with an electric) What a difference!!! Didn't think it would be possible to improve on an excellent close shave but it did. The head truly glides over the skin. (Tip: when the foam gets all sucked into the heads and you find you start to feel the drag, add a few drops of water direct to the blades and carry on. It's like a recharge of fresh foam) It's super quiet and surprisingly quick. I can achieve an extremely close shave on 3 day's growth within seconds of what I could with the blade. There is no issue with the unit heating up while in use what so ever. Over three weeks worth of shaves on a single charge. (granted I skip weekends but still) About the only negative I can think of is the rotary blades inability to get that tricky part directly under the nose. A quick convert to activate the trimmer takes care of that detail in a flash. This minor inconvenience is more than compensated with the fact in nearly 2 months of use I haven't once nicked myself and bled all over the place. Summary ... Two Thumbs Up!!! You won't be disappointed.

Good shaver

I purchased this unit approximately 6 months ago. So far, I love it since the shaver doesn't get hot easily and the shaver head moves smoothly along my face. It has a classy design and is very light as well. However, compared to lower level of shavers, which is relatively cheaper, I do not see any special reasons to choose this one. Also, although it does not get hot easily compared to other units, still it gets hot in about 30 seconds.
