Selling on Laskys for £34 too with free delivery
Also comet online for £34 plus £5 delivery and currys and dixons online £39 with free delivery so not such a fab deal really as it seems the normal price......rrp £100??? Don't think so.

£34 at amazon also now seems a good price though

£34 in comet and £9.99 extra for 3 years cover (not often these things last longer than 3 years..)

Is this shaver any good?

Hot deal for both at comet and amazon!

Amazon had this on their black friday deals for £33 something last week.
Cheeky of them for putting it at this price.

Is this a decent shaver?

I've only ever used a manual razor, is there much difference in the quality of the shave?

Posted when I got one from Argos at £42.49, 2 days ago so this is a real bargin. Reckon they read my original posting. Heat added

Reviews on Amazon seem very positive for this.

Tempted....

Yes - ignore the blurb of the electric shaver. Its not as close as a wet shave but it is more convenient.

This is a good deal especially if your existing philips needs new heads - as the replacement heads cost £30!!

Which Best Buy Review

You can use the Philips AquaTouch AT890 electric shaver on its own or with foam for a wet shave - great news if you like to choose between the convenience of dry and the comfort of wet. But does this electric shaver work equally well on hair and stubble? And will it irritate your skin?

This Best Buy shaver gives a smooth, close shave whether it's used wet or dry.

The heads on this rotary shaver have slots to catch hairs, small holes to pick up stubble, and the blades lift hair before cutting it to give a really close shave.

It fits the different contours of the face well, and the men in our user trial found it very comfortable to use dry, and particularly gentle when used with foam for a wet shave.

Great battery life

A full charge will give you around 19 shaves before you'll need to plug it in again, so it's a great choice if you want to take it on holiday and don't want the hassle of daily charging. Plus, if you're caught short, a three minute quick-charge will give you enough power for an emergency shave.

The men in our user trial found this shaver a doddle to use - it's comfy to grip and fits your hand nicely so it's easy to move around your face and neck. It doesn't self-clean but getting rid of hairs is easily done by using the brush provided or detaching the head and rinsing it under the tap.

Average beard trimmer

The pop-up beard trimmer does the job but the blade isn't particularly sharp. And it's a little awkward to keep it extended while you're using it - it easily pops back down when you press it against your face.


Pros: Great shave, gentle on your skin, holds its charge, easy to use

Cons: Awkward beard trimmer

Bril, I bought one from Currys for £34 as they do price match. All I had to say was 'Comet cheaper than you'. And I had a gift card to use at Currys so job done. : )

carthur - you rock thanks for sharing the which info

Daft question, but how short does the hair have to be for these types of razors to work? I sometimes let the beard grow for 3-4 days, would it cope with that? What about post holiday fuzz?

Am getting fed up paying into the endless pit that is razor blades (esp. as my favourite blade has recently changed and is now terrible...)

Copes fine with 3-4 days growth.

Mine copes fine with 3-4 days growth, so you'd be fine. I've even left it 5-6 days before and no problems.

I picked this up during the Amazon black friday deals for £33.51. Funny they made it £34 the next week!

Anyway, I had never used an electric shaver but gotta say after a couple of shaves this thing is fantastic. Wet or dry gives a very smoove shave with no irritation. Not quite as close as a razor, but with far less time and hassle involved.

Only down side is that the trimmer thing is useless. It may work on a beard or tache (I don't know), but for sideburns it doesn't really do the job.

they put it up to £47 in the 12 days of christmas sale !
I complained you cant call a discount when youve increased the price and they tried to fob me off saying suppliers control the prices not them...

How long can you use an electric shaver without having to replace the heads? i use it twice a week for about a year now.

They recommend every 2 years but thats based on using it daily for about 3 mins each day.

I've used my Philips one (with a similar head to the one above) at least every other day for nearly 8 years and it's still cutting fine now.

How do theses compare with the hq6990 one that i have apart from not been wet shaver?

One ordered and heat added. This should save me loads in razors!

I disagree with the comment that 3-4 days is fine. I actually have the model up from this one (uses same blades and head) and it's useless past 2 days. I find myself breaking out my Fusion razer the following morning if I fall out of a routine. The reason for that is it takes a good ten minutes going clockwise and anticlockwise with this Electric to pick up the vast majority of hairs (IF you leave it more than a few days). Even then, there's the odd rouge that it doesn't pick up. I do have very rough stubble though, and you could always put a lot more pressure on than I do to shave faster.

Another word of warning is that if you have sensitive skin, you'll probably end up using shaving gel a lot with this, so it's actually no quicker than using a manual shaver.

Battery life is excellent on mine and in Philips defence, they are much better than any of the Braun one's I've tried. The end results are often quite pleasing and if you find that you cut yourself a lot going against the grain (so you don't, leaving an uneven finish) with a manual razor, the Philips system can actually be a smoother shave in some cases.

been using the coolskin model for years now - still going strong

From the amazon specs, I'd say:-

- only a dry shaver

+ triple track (versus a single track per head on this razor)

I'm not sure how much difference having effectively 9 heads (3 circlular 'tracks' per head) rather than 3 will make?

Just took the plunge, will be my first electric shaver, hope it won't disappoint!

Hot just ordered from Amazon with free delivery...thanks.

^me too i'm tempted.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-Aquatouch-AT890-Electric-Trimmer/dp/B004XIBAT0

gotta love the adverts and demonstration videos.

they're proper LMFAO.

also i'm willing to pay more for a better shaver so how do you reckon this compares to the model posted above or at the £35-60 range?

Heat added. Ordered Philips PowerTouch Pro PT920 Shaver last night from Argos with £5 deal to replace Philips 8020 to avoid buying expensive replacement head. Ordered this one now from Amazon.

hmmm, i'm also now tempted to take the plunge away from wet shaving and razors. Thng is the hair down around my adam's apple tends to grow in all kinds of weird and wonderful directions, so not sure how an electric razor will handle that

Wouldn't it be better to buy the braun 340s for a few pounds more?

It will save you money in the long run, since the replacement heads are cheaper than Philips
