phillips electric razors
I agree with the comment that the newer the razor the poorer the quality .
in saying that I still enjoy using the phillips SensoTouch 3d its a pity that the heads are so expensive to replace . I am also going to sing the praises of the phillips aqua touch S5050. That can seriously challenge a lot of dearer razors .
Philips Shaver Series 7000
The Philips Shaver Series 7000 is the best Shaver I have purchased it gives you a close shave The Shaver is easy to clean. I highly recommend it to anyone who looking to purchase a shaver
Very happy with Philps 7000 shaver
The 7000 series Philishave has the same high tech cutting head as the much more expensive newer 9000 series, and it works brilliantly. I changed from a Panasonic linear shaver that has been good but getting very tired after 10 years.
I am very happy with the Philips wet shaving results in the shower with the Nivea shaving gel. A change from dry shave, but the results are worth the change.
I recently purchased this shaver for my husband . He has been happy with the way it shaves and would reccomend it to others. We purchased from Myer online and also received a good price.
Extremely poor performance. It should be withdrawn from the market. My advise is Don't purchase! Phi
I also fell into the trap of thinking I was purchasing a quality product. However, it's performance is extremely poor, and fails to deliver an acceptable shave. This unit is overrated and over priced! In my option it should be withdrawn from the market. Massive fail Philips! Useless.
So disappointed with my Philips 7000 Shaver
I have been a loyal customer, purchasing Philips shavers -since I was a young man. Now in retirement I am disillusioned and very frustrated with poor shaving results. I thought by purchasing the more expensive Philips model 7000 it would be an improvement, giving me satisfaction and peace of mind. Sadly disappointed.Takes me longer to use. Definitely does not remove all my facial hair,and bites me in the process. Often in despair I resort to a pack of disposable razors and shaving foam for comfort and satisfaction. Even my older Philips Speed-XL, with its' 2 year old replacement heads, gives a better (not perfect) shave. Especially is it more comfortable. It's built in trimmer is more practical compared to my 7000 model which "boasts" an easily lost, detachable trimmer (slightly smaller than a matchbox) which must be stored and carried separately. In use it must be fitted in place of the three cutting heads. At home and whilst traveling I now have three separate pieces to keep track of as well. A larger storage bag would have solved that problem. Because of the privacy rules on this site, I anticipate there can be no direct communication with me other than an invitation to me to contact someone in Philips to talk about my problem.
This is not a problem of my making. Returning customers, keep a manufacturer in business. Am I wrong to expect every new and increasingly more expensive model will be an improvement?
There is a great contractual adage "Let the buyer beware" I am now well and truly aware!
Philishave for 60 years
Purchased the 7000 in October 2016. Rough on the face and not a close shave. Also leaks water down my wrist. I expect the innards to corrode in a few months. I keep the old shaver for a close, smooth shave.
New shaver head useless
I purchased a new shaver head 4 weeks ago and found it frustrating and useless. the retainer clips for the cutters come loose while shaving then you need to stop, clean and refit only to have the same occur.
I contacted Phillips by email and have had no response.
The more recent the model, the worse the shave.
I now own 3 Philips shavers, the more recent the model the worse the shave. OK for a round the house shave, but I wouldn't go out to an event having used it. I got my latest shaver a 7000 series for Xmas 2015, what a disappointment. Rang Philips helpline after finding I had to use my $25 trimmer to cut the fine hairs the Philips refused to cut. I was told to try cutting them first, this made no difference. I told them my very old shaver was doing a better job, I should have the cash back offer but persevered. 12 months later, I will never buy another Philips shaver and will go back my razor.
This razor has a clip system to hold the blades but, the more often the clips are released for cleaning, the more often the clips come apart in use. The clip system is simply too fiddly and it is wise to ensure the plug is in the basin so that the parts do not fall down the plughole. A retaining clip that holds the entire shaver head has now broken and the razor has become useless.
Not cheap, but good value. Best electric shaver IMHO
I bought this shaver in beginning of January 2016 - free delivery by Shaver Shop online. As I try to avoid buying products Made in China (unfortunately most products, even from a very famous German brand are MiC) by principle, I was willing to spend a little more money ($229) and decided to buy the Philips Made in The Netherlands. After over 5 months of daily use, I must say that it exceeded my every expectation and was quite possibly the best shaving experience that I've ever had. Not only gives it a smooth, close shave but it's also easy to charge and easy to clean. I can shave dry and wet, even under the shower. No skin irritation anymore. And it's almost noiseless. Highly recommended!
