Not a major improvement to previous generations.
After having a Philips AT890 for 4 years on its original blades, I was disappointed with this model. Shaves as close as the AT890 with 4 year old blades and takes longer. Motor seems to be impacted more when all 3 blades cutting into initial swipe of stubble by slowing down slightly compared to the stronger AT890. Have to be careful taking off the blade cover as the clip holding the flip-top to access the shavings is weaker. Not uncommon to end up spilling stubble all over vanity basin just by trying to take the blade cover off. While I wasn't...necessarily expecting the nice zip up protective pouch that the AT890 come with, pretty stingy not to at least include a cleaning brush! Only thing addressed with new model is less likely to accidentally push the on/off button while in use. Bought in post Xmas sales. Would have been quite annoyed if paid RRP. I don't think this one will be lasting the distance of the old one.
