Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike41 This razor cuts very well
This is my first electric razor and it works quite well. It works well in the shower, so I can rinse it off when I'm finished. It should have came with a carrying case.

This little device shaves BETTER than my razor, which I've been using up until we bought this.
I was pleasantly surprised with the battery life as I had to re-charge it only 1 month AFTER I bought it, noting that I use this daily.
I Don't have an idea as to why I waited this long to switch from Razor as this not only shaves better, it saves me more time in the mornings .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rich62 Good Shaver for the Price
I was given the Philips 5100 to try as a free sample in exchange for a review of the product. Overall, I found the shaver to be an average to above average performer. I was pleasantly surprised by how smooth the shave was. The 5100 seemed to glide over my face unlike any other electric shaver I've used in the past. The other major difference in comparison, is that this item is very light-weight. Personally, I prefer a heavier feel, but I would think others would find the lightness to be beneficial.
Unlike other shavers I'm familiar with the 5100 requires the user to remove the shaving head and replace it with the trimmer. Although just a minor point, I would choose to have a pop-up trimmer on my shaver. The trimmer though does work well.
The 5100 provided a close shave. I used the shaver for several days straight and I was satisfied with the results. I also waited a couple days to see how it did when the stubble grew some and it did well. Clean up was easy. Although this can be used as a wet shaver, I did not use in this manner.
Prior to the testing, I had been using a foil shaver and I prefer the shave to that of the Philips. However, taking into account the selling price at the major retailers, I find the Philips 5100 a very good choice and would have no trouble recommending this to someone looking to spend less that $100 on an electric shaver.

First off let me say that I should mention that I was sent a free Phillips Electric Shaver to use for this review,with that being said ,let me get to my honest review of the product. I have used electric shavers in the past but was not always a fan of them but this one past my expectations. The quality of shave was smooth and gave a clean shave and the best part is taking a hot steaming shower to open the pores on my neck and face to test if it would get a perfect shave without leaving stubbles in hard to reach areas. I must say that it was probaly one of the best shaves I have had in a while. I think its a well made quality product and I would recommend it,not just cause it was free but because of the job it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BryckF great shaver and recommended 5 stars
I received a free sample of the Phillips 5100 Wet/Dry Shaver to review. I really liked this shaver a lot. I had just switched to a wet/dry electric shaver about a year ago, and compared to the one I had previously I am way more satisfied with the Phillips 5100. I actually didn't realize that my old razor was deficient until using the 5100. I liked the easy to use, quick charging, and most of all quiet running of this Phillips shaver. It was very comfortable to use, cut very close and smooth with one stroke and was easy on the facial skin.
It is extremely easy to clean as well. It does come with a stand only a charging cord. I personally prefer a charging stand, however I am aware that with the wet/dry electric shavers if the charging stand doesnt drain right the connectors can rust or break that may be why there is only a cord included.
The razor includes a trimming attachment which is easily changed and does a great job with trimming mustache and beard.
I like the hair collection feature which makes for easier cleaning.
I would most definitely recommend this razor especially at the price point it sells for.

I received a free sample of this Philips Shaver 5100 in exchange for agreeing to write a review. I shave almost everyday and use a disposable razor. Not anymore, ever since I received this shaver, that`s all I`ve been using! This shaver is amazing, my skin does not get irritated and it gives me a close clean shave. The battery lasts long so I don`t have to recharge often, it`s light, quiet, and I really like that I can shave in the shower, which at first I was kind of afraid to, didn`t think it would work and just irritate my skin more with the hot water. Overall, I`m very pleased with this shaver and highly recommend to anyone looking for an electric shaver.
