Defo a bargain got my son one last week which was less than half price. Heat added

crazy hooooot

Was considering getting this ... Any feedback before I purchase ?

I have been using Phillips shavers for 40 years and have never had a bad shave yet, each shaver I have had has lasted at least 5 years
one or two of them nearly 10.
Of all the rotary shavers these are (imho) the best, I always get one that is both rechargeable and mains so that if the battery does run out mid shave you can still shave using the mains, not really necessary now as these new ones give you plenty of warning of the battery status. Some of the shavers are quite expensive I have never paid more than £50 and that is for a SALE one.

Always pondered on one of these... seems decent feedback on this. Might have a go and ditch the normal Gillette shave!

I have this and I have the AT899 from a few years back too. In my opinion there is absolutely NO difference between the two whatsoever apart from the pop-up trimmer. Not worth the extra expense really.

All the Philips shavers easily need new heads every couple of years which usually cost the same as the shaver itself. That's exactly why I bought a new shaver.

I'm looking to replace a 10+ year old Philips shaver that has done me well but the button is gradually starting to fail. They make such a difference to your morning if you are used to using a wet razor, and quite a saving on razor blades.

They're one of those things that if you keep your eyes open you'll never pay £100+ for, but even that said, at £47.99 this is a great deal!

I use the trimmer to keep my beard length down, I just hover over it and use it like hair-clippers, but before I had one I never used the trimmer.

Surprised to hear that, I've never changed mine, just cleaned the whole thing thoroughly every now and then and it's fine 10+ years on.

Check Amazon too as it looks like they might be pricematching a lot of these (or some slightly cheaper like the Remington Hyperflex - £59.99 at Argos, £51 at Amazon)

Thanks, used my £10 voucher I got from a purchase the other day with 20% off glitch, so £37.99 for this is a bargain! Heat added.

Probably the new ones need heads replaced as I have a Philips bought about 20 years ago and it said they never need replacing and indeed they are working as good as they did the 1st day I bought it.

Buy rotary heads. I tried the Braun system and there's no comparison.

Seems like this one is battery only... at least that's what the comments on Argos say.

Are these type of shavers suitable for a 7-10 days beard?
I don't usually shave every day, but only once it is long enough and irritating.

Been using this for about 3 years now. Still going strong, Long battery life.

a silly question because we never used this stuff and not even a dry one. Can only be used with water or we can also use foam, jelly, anything??

WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING!!!

Hmmm.
£55.24 now

Bought this yesterday and previously stated the price had gone up to 55.24. However I got a £5 off voucher on next argos purchase on my receipt, presumably as it was over £50. As for the shave I used it this morning and it seems good to me.

Can someone put us in the right direction please? rrp 140 but was sold at £47.99
what about these cheaper one in the market from Philips?
as an example is this more or less this same?
Also, my understanding is that the blades must be the same, can someone explain please?
