Easy to use. I experienced some skin irritation at first, but after continual use, that went away. Long battery life. I use this every 2-3 days and the charge lasts a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Melvin27 Excellent product except for battery
Item has proved to be better than I expected. Easy to set levels of trim and easy to clean. The only item I have had trouble with was the battery. It no longer retains the charge beyond a day or two. I must recharge it overnight prior to use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by R2bad Works okay, battery life is terrible.
The unit works okay, but it'll only last 2-3 years. When the lithium ion battery dies, you'll have to get a new one as these aren't user-servicable, nor are they worth the price of fixing. I called Philips Norelco and they offered me a 10% coupon on a new one. Uh no, I don't think I'll be buying another one from Philips Norelco.

Rated 2 out of 5 by goldenknight Shaves/Trims fine. Battery is awful
The battery life on this is terrible. I can leave it charged overnight and it will be nearly dead by the time I'm done trimming my beard after a few minutes. The battery warning light comes on after about 30 seconds of use.
It is also annoying that charging it requires the use of the stand, which is a waste of precious bathroom counter space and especially inconvenient for travel.
It does trim will and being waterproof is nice for cleaning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Louie12 WHERE IS THE PLUG?
I would otherwise be writing about what a great product this is, EXCEPT that it is virtually impossible to recharge! One of the WORST engineering feats of all time! How about a simple PLUG-IN feature -- we do NOT need this goofy "match up" the parts of the razor with the ludicrous holder in order to recharge this product! I am looking for another brand to replace this product -- my patience has run out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Timberwolf Smooth clean easy to use
Very easy to use.. clean with no skin irritation and no scratches. I recommend I had no skin irritation nor scratches to the back. Being Italian this trim back easily.
worth the investment.with long arm attachment stores easily

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bux7 Very short battery
Owned this product for just over a year. I thought I was investing in a quality Phillips product, and the battery life is terrible. It hardly holds a charge anymore and doesn't last more then three seconds before it cuts and catches your hair (which is obviously painful).

Rated 2 out of 5 by Burdz1 Could be better...
I had an older version of this and I was hoping with the positive reviews this would be improved. Not really improved.
The trimmers on each side of the shaving head are still abrasive and don't seem to serve any purpose. The shaving head doesn't shave very close either. I've tried both wet and dry a few times precisely following their instructions and recommendations and it leaves much stubble.
The hair trimmer on the flip side works fine.
I'll continue to use a regular razor and shaving gel to get a closer, neater all over shave. And put this away...
