Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, quite quiet and I didn't experience anywhere near as much irritation in the first few weeks of use as I had expected
Bad points:
Still not as close as a wet shave. But what do you expect?

N, Croydon

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Compared to my old PhileShave (10year old) this does give a closer shave equivillant to a manual shave - as loog as you are not comparing it to the latest Gillate Razor!
Bad points:
Good be better. Still causes me friction burns not to bad though. I am not able to shave daily due to sensitivity - so I have to wait a couple of days - Saying this I have the same problem with Gillete's Power razor.

Nick, Waterlooville

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Quiet, stylish and comfortable to use.
Bad points:
1) Mains cord is not a spiral type as previously, tends to be difficult to store tidily and gets tangled. 2) The shaver head assembly isn't very secure and when inverting the shaver over a waste bin to empty the clippings the shaver head invariably falls into the bin too. 3) The cutter rotation speed seems to be substantially lower than my previous Philishave shavers which may be relevant in explaining why the shaver performance seems to be merely adequate.
