Rated 5 out of 5 by Railhead1 Cleaning heads is easy and small enough to fit in my hand
I like the fact that I can clean the heads easily and that with arthritic hands the shaver is small enough that I can hold it easily.
I would recommend this product. I am pleased with the razor and this is the first Phillips I have owned.

This is my 3rd Norelco electric shaver in the last 20 plus years. I have liked them all. They all were replaced instead of buying new blades, which cost half the price of a whole new shaver. It makes more sense to buy a new shaver instead of replacing the blades on a near 10 year old shaver. My last Norelco was so old i couldn't find any replacement blades. I'm happy with my shaver.

It's a razor! All razors are over priced. This was the best bang for the bucks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hymie Does not shave as close as a cheaper Norelco
I bought this razor 6/19/2016 and received it a few days later. I had the Norelco 6948XL which I had for a few months, After using the new razor for 3 days, I went and shaved myself with the older razor and found that it gave me a noticeably closer shave. I should mention that when using the 948XL I had developed some soreness under the nostrils which cleared up after 3 days using the newer razor. I am going back to using the older one and hope I do not develop the soreness again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BillA02 Nice Affordable Razor
I have no real complaints with this razor It is a very affordable product that does the job intended. I'd love to upgrade to a 5000 series sometime as I have used my uncles and love the speed and comfort with which it operates. I have been dropping hints to such for an upcoming birthday...

Rated 4 out of 5 by KJKC Good entry-level shaver
I really like this shaver—it`s light, quiet, charges quickly, and cleans easily. However, I find that I`m unable to use it for a complete shave. I still require my existing electric shaver in order to trim around my goatee.
The Shaver 3100 cuts through stubble quick, and with fewer passes than my old shaver. After using it daily for about 2 weeks, I then went 5-days without shaving to see how it would handle long, dense growth. Unlike my existing shaver from a high-priced competitor, the Shaver 3100 was able to give me a close shave without having to trim it first. Unfortunately, I got a little too close to my goatee and it cut a large swath out. Since then, I use the 3100 for the majority of the shave, and use my old shaver to clean up around my goatee.
I`ve found that it works best and leads to less skin irritation when a little bit of shave gel is used. If it weren`t for these minor issues, I`d likely give this a 5-star review.
Full disclosure: I was given a free sample to use for this review.

I received this shaver as a free sample, and I'm so happy that I did. This shaver is fantastic. It cuts closer than other more expensive models I have used in the past without needing multiple passes. It is powerful yet quiet and doesn’t get hair everywhere. The shaver holds its charge so I only had to charge it about once every two weeks. It works well on my neck and my head without tugging (which has been a problem for me in the past#. Cleaning this shaver is a snap as well as the heads pop open and you can run the unit under hot water. The pop-up trimmer isn’t that great as it tends to scratch me a little but other than that it works well.
Very quiet #no complaints from my wife like with other machines)
It is a decent size, not too big
The battery indicator works well
Easy to clean
Very close shave
The pop-up trimmer isn’t great

I received a free sample of this electric shaver to try out and review and overall I thought it is a great shaver. What I like the most is that the Philips Norelco Series 3000 Shaver 3100 holds a good charge, is fairly light weight, and is comfortable to hold and use. It has a rubber surface on part of it that allows for a good comfortable grip and fits your hand well. In addition, it is very easy to clean off the blades and clean out hair collection chamber after use. I also liked that the trimmer/edger feature on the back was easy to use and powerful enough for cleaning up my sideburns and neck when needed. Finally, the sound level of the shaver was lower than other electric shavers I`ve used.
The only thing that I feel the shaver could do a little better at is provide a closer shave when you just have stubble. I had to go over the same places multiple times to really get a close shave when compared to other electric shavers. The shaver did great though when my facial hair was a little longer.
With everything considered, this shaver has my vote and I would definitely recommend it to others!
