Rated 5 out of 5 by MJAB87 Great shaver
As a woman, I had a lot of trouble finding a shaver that would do a good job when I hadn't shaved every day. This shaver was the ticket. I love the rotary heads (first time owning one) because I can effectively shave my legs while moving the shaver in many directions. My only qualm is that it doesn't shave as close as a blade (though it is ckose).
It holds a charge very well. I can go over a week without recharging when shaving daily.
It comes with a cover and a cord for recharging, but no travel case or cleaning brush. I don't see anything like the in the accessory section of the Philips site. Overall, great shaver.

This is the first time I have ever used an Electric Shaver. I love the wet & dry feature and the ease of use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gorman I had to return shaver
Last time I tried electric shavers was 20 years ago and it didn't work for me (skin irritation and lousy performance) . A friend of mine recommended this particular model saying that I should give it a try because it does a wonderful job comparable to conventional razors. Well, it doesn't. Especially below the chin it's unable to lift and cut hair to my satisfaction. Also, I have a partial beard and it's virtually impossible to make a neat shaped edge. The built in trimmer is a joke. My skin gets irritated too because I keep coming back to areas already shaved to get desired smoothness. I'm disappointed that I haven't seen any performance improvements. After two decades it all looks the same. As opposed to computers, appliances, cars etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cjteteak Great razor, close shave and can use it in the shower!
Received the razor as a sample to review. In the past I've used straight edged electric razors so this was the first time in awhile I've used a circular one. Shaving time is great and much faster than my old one. Had a little trouble getting a close shave under my lower lip, but it could just be my face shape. Holds a charge well, lasting about 2 weeks before I needed to charge it again. Love that I can use it in the shower and rinse it quickly to keep it clean. great razor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LesS12 Close shave without irritation
After receiving a free demo of the Philips Norelco Series 3000 Shaver 3500 to review, I have come to the conclusion that this is a solid, convenient, quality product. The shaver provides a very close shave; closer than I get with a razor actually. I have a coarse beard combined with sensitive skin, but this shaver gave me a close, comfortable shave without irritation. One of the things that I like best about it is that it`s waterproof; you can take it in the shower, or use a shave lubricant to get a close comfortable shave. The one time I used it dry my skin was a little itchy, so if you have sensitive skin dry shaving probably isn`t the best practice (regardless of shaving implement). It works right out of the box and has a charging indicator light that tells you when you have a full charge or enough juice for a quick shave. Battery life is good; I have shaved 4x and haven`t needed to recharge it yet. One feature I like, but feel leaves you wanting more is the flip up hair trimmer. It is nice to clean up lines (neck, beard), but it isn`t very powerful, so you might have to go over the same area a few times to get all of the hair. That being said, if you need to trim up a neck line or beard line, you can do it with this shaver. I expected to have trouble with hard-to-reach areas like under the nose, but the shaver is flexible and can get those whiskers without much trouble. To clean it after use, you can just run it under the sink and leave open to dry. Overall, I recommend this product if you`re in the market for an electric shaver. I have been pleasantly surprised with how ease and comfort this shaver provides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TryRich REVIEW ON NORELCO SHAVER 3500
I RECEIVED A FREE SAMPLE OF THIS NORELCO WET DRY SHAVER TO REVIEW. WHEN I FIRST GOT IT I PLUGGED IN THE CORD TO CHARGE IT. I LOVE THAT IT IS RECHARGEABLE, WIRELESS AND THAT IT HAS A QUICK CHARGE OPTION. I HAD A FEW DAYS OFF FROM WORK SO I HAD MORE THAN AVERAGE STUBBLE. I WAITED LIKE SEVEN MINUTES FOR IT TO CHARGE AND WENT TO A MIRROR. I TURNED IT ON AND STARTED TO SHAVE. IT WAS GREAT. IT GAVE ME A PRETTY CLOSE SHAVE FOR NOT BEING A RAZOR.
SOME OF THE CURVES OF MY FACE NEEDED TO BE GONE OVER A FEW TIMES TO GET EVERY HAIR. IT DID BETTER THAN EXPECTED. THE POP UP TRIMMER DID NOT DO THE BEST JOB. IT WAS EASY TO CLEAN.
NEXT DAY I USED IT WET IN THE SHOWER. IT WORKED JUST AS GOOD AS DRY. I WILL SAY THAT MY FACE FELT SMOOTHER SHAVING WET. THE POP UP TRIMMER WAS THE SAME ALSO. NOT THE BEST JOB TRIMMING. VERY EASY TO CLEAN. I LET IT AIR DRY FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE I PLUGGED IT IN TO DRY. STILL HAD A GREAT STRONG CHARGE THE NEXT DAY.
ALL IN ALL IT IS GREAT. I LIKE TO TAKE IT IN MY CAR FOR THOSE AFTER 5 PM MEETINGS. SO I CAN LOOK FRESH. I WOULD BUY THIS PRODUCT, FOR SURE. THANKS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRY IT.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PatrickL Decent but seems to lack power
I recently received the Phillips Norelco Series 3000 Shaver 3500 as part of a review seeding program, and after a few weeks of use I can say that while I like the shaver, I`m not completely sold on it.
The first thing that had me concerned was that after a full charge it didn`t feel like the shaver had much power. In compared to a few other razors that I have used, the three heads just don`t seem to spin very fast. When it comes to an electric shaver, I expect to feel some power, and this device doesn`t convey that it has the power to do the job.
That said, it does do a respectable job when it comes to shaving despite this perceived lack of power. Having never used a rotary style shaver before, it takes a bit of getting used to, but it`s pretty easy and quick to figure out. The company recommends that you give yourself three weeks of shaving with it for your beard to become accustomed to it and optimize results.
The head of the unit is a bit big for my liking as well; I`ve always favored smaller foils and shavers, as this just feels a bit big to me and I don`t seem to get much benefit from what could be a reduced shaving time by having more cutting area.
I do like the pop-out trimmer as it does a very good job edging my side burns and neck line.
I'm not one to shave in the shower, so I can't comment on the wet/dry usage aspect of this device.
Overall, this is a decent shaver and one I`ll hang onto and use on occasion, though I can`t say I`ll ever stop feeling like it`s lacking the horsepower of other models.
