This Shaver is very nice to have use in the shower or just dry the only thing a little hard is finding the replacement
blades but they are there just have to do some digging.

I've been using this product for the last three months. It has been working fantastic thus far. It's easy to use, easy to maintain, and replacement blades are easy to find. The razor does take a few passes to get all the hairs, but I suppose a lot of razors have the same issue. I would recommend this razor to anyone looking for good performance without breaking the bank. I will continue to use Norelco fr their great product.

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.
