Rated 1 out of 5 by Neville Really frustrated.
Well I don’t have a good word for this shaver.
I bought my Philips Series 9000 - S9161 - 515174028 /A - about 5 months ago.
I use it dry shave but find that it takes a very very very long time to cut all the hairs for a smooth feel.
I have been trying and trying, back and forth and circular motion but it still misses patches.
If I skip a day like on the week end then it takes a really long time for the shave.
The shaver that I had before worked much better. It was a Philips Philishave 8894, but sadly it had gotten very old.
Do all the models of 9000 series use the same cutting heads – is it possible to change the heads to improve the shave?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bob285 Great shaver AFTER original heads replaced
Bought this series 9000 shaver 6/2015 after my series 8000 shaver had been stolen with luggage. I was sorely disappointed as it missed places, I had to go over the same place multiple times, and it caught on my skin some. After one year, the replacement head indicator light had not come on but I decided to replace the heads anyway. WOW! It's like a new shaver. Smooth, fast, and no catches. Back to Norelco being my favorite shaver. Anyone having a similar problem, try replacing the heads. It seems the ones I had out of the box were not as good as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave79 The smoothest shave I have ever had.
At the beginning, the razor was rather coarse on the skin. I just needed a few days to adjust to the feel which was different from the others I had used.
I have been a Norelco user since late 1974. Prior to that, I primarily used blades; I could not get a smooth cut from electric razors. I always had styptic sticks available because I was constantly nicking my face with the blades.
There's very little you could offer me to get me to part with my razor.

I like it a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JLTOU812 Great features. Non replaceable plastic part requiring new cutter.
Although new, the little plastic comb that covered Cutter, broke. To replace it, I had to buy a new cutter. So, I returned it to COSTCO.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jordan23 This product is decent
The trimmer attachment for sideburns etc does not work good. I was very disappointed. Significant upgrades need to be made.
