Brillo, cheers! Been waiting for a decent mains/rechargeable shaver to come in around that price...

Same price at Amazon too now, but Argos better for instant gratification :)
#2
Is this shaver any good?
#3
I bought this one as a present some months ago, (at this exact price!) and while it cuts stubble well, the battery performance hasn't been a patch on previous Philips models (Inc. my own current one which is worn out yet still charges well). It is a case of charging every couple of days, (light beard user btw) and it seems a bit soon for this :-(

May have been a bit unlucky this time, but it is as well to note that the new, & more expensive models now come with better Lithium batteries. I am hanging on for a better spec model before replacing mine.

If you look at the reviews on Argos/ anywhere it gets a 4.4 out of 5. That rating includes the numpties giving 1's when they don't understand the concept of an electric shaver, or complaining because it comes without a 3 pin plug!

Basic Philips shavers cost £30-45 and they are the ones that take 8hrs charge to give 30 mins shaving i.e the hq6970

This shaver is still £89.99 on littlewoods direct.

If you want the hs8020 http://i581.photobucket.com/albums/ss256/mightykaboosh/philipshq8020.jpg you can buy it from littlewoods direct for £34.13 instead of the £59.99 advertised using code zq540 and buy a pillow slip or something cheap to take the order over £60.00 to get the £30 off discount!

£52 on amazon thats £18 cheaper!

Note that the hs8020 has the same shocking charge time as the basic shavers and is flimsily built!

You are talking about Argos and other store everyday prices.
There are less pricey options almost everywhere else anyway!

Philips shavers DO get heavily discounted at times, so there is almost always something better value, somewhere else!

Eg the hq6970 is only £28.50 on Amazon::
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001C9VZ84?ie=UTF8&tag=asm01000309-21&linkCode=as2&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=B001C9VZ84&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
(Not too bad a buy at that price!)

The HS8020 is a DUD of a model - slow charge, as are many models, but the benefit it does have is Li-ion batteries so they might last longer than the ones in the WIlliams model - but, and it is a big but - it has no trimmer like the 8040 and 8060, the lack of working trimmer is exactly the reason I am looking to replace my shaver in the first place! Still, the price you quote makes it cheap if you don't want one with a trimmer!

This Williams model is now a pretty old model, it already was when I bought it some time back, It is a common thing for Philips shavers to come up as EXCELLENT deals now and again, and while this one is decent, it is nothing like as good as many have been, just typically when I want one, there isn't one around! ;-)

There have been TWO versions of this shaver on here over the last year or two - the first one was quite good, and no problems, but this one is a LOT lighter & less well built, and I find it runs flat from fully charged in about two days yet has only had a few months use.

All the Philips shavers are priced/placed in order by virtue of their numerous features, and battery life/charging time, and other features are part of this - the current 8020 is a good example, it is the new model but a VERY low spec version of it, so is cheaper.

This particular model was originally VERY overpriced as it is a fairly low spec model to begin with - the fancy graphics being the reason for it's high list price I suppose! It was SOON available for sale at this low price on Amazon, as clearly it's not a top of the range model that it was pretending to be, and now Argos have it, it is still the same fairly basic buy, it is OK for 40-odd quid, but not in the same league as some models that occasionally get listed on this site.

You've just compared a fillet mignon to a scotch egg!

The model hq6970 takes 8hrs of charge time to deliver a 30 minute shave!

The one I posted takes 1/8th of that!

Plus the hq6970 using voucher codes was available at £19+ free delivery last time I checked from littlewoods.

This is a deal i'm not saying its as good as a panasonic shaver however I am saying for the price its good......

Now last time I checked this site 2 bottles of coke and a glass had more heat than this, now that infuriates me.
Just to illustrate how much sugar there is in a bottle of coke? http://www.sugarstacks.com should put it into context! So consume 54 sugar cubes and your "rewarded" with a Glass! it should be a MUG!

No wonder there are so many tubby .......... waddling around!

Yeah, but it doesn't LAST, that's the problem!

I am struggling to work out what you mean, but as far as the voting goes, you just haven't worked out how it works, have you? :-(

I understand perfectly the way this site works, extra points to you for being condescending.

My point was that this is a superior deal to 2 bottles of coke and a free glass posted elsewhere on the site by someone else which has received more heat.

The fact that you can say this shaver doesn't last and sway voters is farcical, review centre gives this shaver 9/10 shavers.co.uk give it 10 out of 10 and the majority of reviews posted after purchase support this. Negative reviews are often generated by copywriters on behalf of other companies to sway potential purchasers, oh and I should know I used to work for an SEO company doing exactly that!

The only way you can say the shaver doesn't last with any conviction is if you bought one, it broke and a replacement failed also. One faulty shaver doesn't mean they all are........ and I say this as when this shaver was last posted at this price 27-12-2008, 14:05 you yourself said:

I have used Philips shavers for years too, and it seems to be be very much one of their best... certainly when compared to any model for less than 50 quid, and one that is not the new "Arcitec" style ones. (Which many complain dump the cut hairs all over!) When I saw this posted elsewhere, I rushed to buy it as I had "promised" a shaver to someone as a present. Agreed it looks a little bit naff, although not as bad as the last WIlliams model; and it isn't something most people use in public anyway!

This has the series 8 heads, so without a time machine to go back a year (although was this not the other "Williams" model Philips shaver, with the more angular body, & other heads?) how else do you get a Philishave with 1 hour charge, & series 8 heads that is waterproof for 43 quid NOW?

The batteries have packed in since... that was about a few months ago when t was a lot newer - still shaves ok though, as I have said. Problem with all Nicad rechargeable devices... same as Electric toothbrushes - sooner they are all Li-ion the better

I wasn't being condescending.

You clearly DON'T understand the way the "heat" actually works... I wouldn't claim to be the greatest expert either, as it defies common sense so often, but it is certainly NOT as it might seem, nor does it work as any other site I have ever been to. If you expect comparability between deals in terms of heat, then be prepared for a lot of very odd results. The oddest I can remember is a single kg of grapes bought in ONE supermarket and NOWHERE else was voted to the upper 600's. Quite a deal that.

You are going to be put out very often too when someone expresses an opinion on a deal too, as I have. Like so many others, you take it personally when someone criticises, and as a result, I think you will find that I, and many others will now say nothing, or just comment in terms of one line, and just vote without bothering with the discussion, it saves a lot of bother, and it isn't every day that we have time!

Does nothing for those trying to make a decision between products though :-(
