Rated 5 out of 5 by Coe38 My search is over!
I have been searching for an electric shaver that works with my hair type for some time. My search is finally over. I normally have problems with ingrown hairs and used to use a safety razor. However, I really wanted to shorten and simplify my morning routine and switch to electric. I tried a couple different types of highly recommended foil types, but they caused me all sorts of irritations and they couldn't get my patches of flat hairs. Then I recently stumbled upon the Philips Norelco AT790 that was designed for people that suffer with ingrown hairs. I've been impressed since day one. I assumed I would have to endure a period of irritation, but for my face... instant success. After shaving I do rub on a little balm and I'm good to go. My only wish is that Philips would use this type of gentle cut blades on a more advance type of shaver besides the AT790. But for now, I'm extremely happy and telling family and friends about my great find.

Got this for Christmas. It shaves ok but not really close. Have to go over my face several times to get a fair shave. Tried to order replacement blades but could not get any from the company. was to to go to several stores to new blades, but they don't carry my model. This was a gift no one that I would choose.

The shaver is extremely quiet compared to the other razors I have had. It is light weight and does a great job cutting the whiskers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WRJack This product cuts very smooth
Upon searching for a new electric shaver, I stopped after reading the reviews on this product [in store], and to this day I have no regrets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ELP928 Close Shave
I purchased this shaver because it was described as recommended for black men beards. I wanted to switch from my clippers to a shaver. After the 30 days of daily use, my face is still a little sensitive to using this shaver and I have more bumping than with my clippers. I wished that the cutting heads were adjustable. The cutting is very close, too close to prevent ingrown hairs even when moving the shaver lightly over the skin. I truly like that water proof case and long time between shaving. After daily use for over 30 days I still haven't seen the recharge light come on. Although, I have a light daily beard growth and only takes a few minutes to shave. I will stick with it a few more days to see if the bumping is significantly reduced or at lease get to the same as using my clippers. Most likely I will look for an adjustable head shaver if I can't eliminate the bumping with this shaver.

This is the best relatively inexpensive razor I've had.

Replaced blade razor and older Norelco. It is my only shaver now and works just like it should. Easy and quick.
