ordered
#2
cheers ordered, £49.99 in argos!
#4
How long are the blades supposed to last on these?

I have a pretty new one but it has stopped cutting well.
#5
They are prob getting rid of them as the box shows the Williams F1 Drivers from 2009 and the razor had logos of companies who all left Williams F1 at the end of this season lol

Good price for a decent razor tho and cheapest ive seen by some way
#6

i bought one when it was on the black friday deals, great shaver for the money, don't think you'll get anything better for that price

Cut my face to ribbons, and quite cheap looking when in the hand. Think it was a basic with Williams team logo's and a hike in price. Argos also have reduced them. Avoid..
#11
I've never used a shaver like this, always just your standard bic style razor. What are they are actually like to use? Are they good with longer, fluffier beards or just for shorter stubble?

I was on the look out for an electric shaver and had to buy this one purely because my name is Phillip Williams!

Its actually not a bad shaver at all. Im not sure what the braun type foil shavers are like, this one as most of the philips style shavers have a bit of a time on the neck, but everywhere else it shaves rather nicely. Apparently it takes about a month or two for your skin to condition to the use of an electric shaver so if you dont get instant results dont panic!

HTH

Cheers

Phill

Had ths for a year or two now, it's okay wouldn't say it's great.

Is generally around the price from amazon pretty sure it was just under £30 when I got mine.

Certainly not worth the 50 plus quid it can be found elsewhere!
#14
Good shaver well worth 32 quid!

As for the bloke who cut his face to shreds with a rotary foil cutting razor is beyond me!!
Think he had a bic in his hand and went ape with it, then thought he had a philips instead, then he woke up, he was really dreaming..:D

Been using electric for donkeys years - they do a decent Monday to Friday job if you get a quality shaver, rubbish if you go too budget. Can irritate your skin if you dont keep the shaver cleaned out, and also worth washing your face afterwards & using a bit of nancy boy after shave balm if you're feeling a bit sensitive as it can leave a rash and bits of small hair on your face without you realising. Dont leave it too long between shaves though as lift and cut shavers can rip your hairs out if they get too long so you have to rub the shaver really fast across your face rather than taking it slowly, which can give you a rash. If you get a waterproof shaver (i.e can wash them under the tap instead of keeping them dry and cleaning out with a brush), you can shave in the shower which helps reduce rash and cleans away the shavings better, but you have to clean them instantly as they dont collect the shavings like dry shavers usually do. That said, dry shavers can smell if not cleaned regularly. Swings and roundabouts between electric and blade really - each to their own but worth trying for a few months rather than a day or two for comparison. Just my two pence worth as others might disagree.

Can anyone tell me which of these is the better shaver?

Yes, I know neither are the one in this thread but they seem good prices.

It takes up to a month for the skin to adjust to an electric shaver. Having used decent wet shavers and the electric shavers, there is no contest, wet shaving wins. However you're using a bic so you might actually get some improvement using an electric shaver hehe.

This may help, you have to scroll through the whole page, as it gives a description of one range of philishave shavers, then pics and prices of the shavers, then it moves on to the next description.

http://www.shavers.co.uk/philishaveguide.php

After reading it quickly it seems than any Philishave razors with an RQ at the front of the model name are the top of the range. So I'd say an RQ series beats the HS series. I'm not sure they do the Smart touch XL series anymore.

Just checked Philips website and Sensotouch branded razors appear to be the highest end razors Philips do.

i bought this last month when it was £40, at first it was great but the more i use it the more i notice it leaves patches and does leave the skin very rough under the neck, even with a moisturiser it still feels like sand paper, i still feel these electric shavers have a way to go, the one thing i dont like is how all these shavers cost a fortune to replace parts for the last braun i had wanted £20 for a new foil this one is over £26!!!! so these are now throw away when a better deal arises to replace.

Thanks for the info - just need the misses to get me the RQ razor for xmas now.

have had this shaver for almost a year now, its good. Always used a rotary electric shaver as I have got sensitive skin. Philips better than Remmington. You cant get as close a shave as a standard wet razor.
#22
I've got the 7390 version of this razer which just differs in the LEDs. I think it's alright, but as someone else stated you can't leave it a few days without shaving, it struggles. I'm not a particularly hairy guy and can go 2 days without shaving without looking trampy but find the razer doesn't cut well and takes a fair amount of going over if you don't do it daily.

Out of interest how long would you guys expect the heads to last? I was thinking of getting new heads for about £25 but i might get one of the shower proof razer, certainly if i ever wet shave in the shower it's much better for me than just using shaving foam
#23
Rubbish shaver - but worth getting for the spare heads and spare battery if you already have a decent model

Heads lasted about 2 years on my last Philishave which was a 7 series Coolshave. I bought new blades and then the shaver died not long after so it was a waste of money. I now just wet shave which costs a bit more but does such a better job, and if I get any irritation ever on my neck I just use a product called Tend Skin which is amazing. Amazon sell it, gets lots of positive reviews on various sites that you see it on >

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tend-Skin-Ingrown-Solution-472ml/sim/B000EBFJVK/2

There are cheaper bottles, generally I pay about £10- £11 for the smaller bottle as I don't need it that often.

Have this shaver and it's not very good. Feels light and flimsy and doesn't cut too well.

Have a more expensive Philips which does work well though
#26
Got one of these (older model though!) around 7-8 years ago, still have it and still cuts really well. Once your face gets used to it, it is fantastic; I have sensitive skin and this cut out the irritation I got from shaving. It's worth using a shaving oil if you want to really go in close (or even the Boots Pre-electric shave stuff, stinks like an 80's aftershave but works a treat).

Many thanks to the OP, been after one of these for a while. HEAT
#28
Good price, heat added!

Does anyone ou there know where I can get a replacement mains charger plug for this model?
Been looking around, but can only find them for over £20.
#29
I must have got lucky, mines about as good as any other electric shaver I've had (and Im had a few from all makes and all price bands!!). It's not as close as a wet shave but to be honest only a complete mug would ever imagine different, it does the job though!

So if you take the heads from it and the battery and use them on something else (better) - aren't they the 2 key parts - therefore how can it be that rubbish?
#31


Decisions decisions eh - I would say the one you have identified is OK for a "Special" shaver. I use one similar to the OP listed for Mon-Fri and use the one you have listed for say special going out at weekends use. The one you have listed I would say is good but does not hold that much stubble - so you have to empty it more frequently. But it does feel nice and contours better. For longevity I would opt for the other one though.

Purchased - expected delivery 21-23rd Dec with super saver delivery

Thanks for bringing this to my attention
