Rated 2 out of 5 by Sim91 Problem w orange retaining ring
The reason I am unhappy with this shaver is that although the actual shave is nice. The orange retaining rings that hold the blade in place keep falling out making it impossible to shave. I ordered new ones and the same thing keeps happening. Be careful if you ever take them out to clean as recommended they might be ruined and you will have constant problems.

I received a free sample of the Phillips 9700 electric shaver for providing an open and honest review of the product. I’ve used electric shavers for the past 20 years and the 9700 is superior to my current shaver as well as others that I have used in the past. The shaver provides a closer shave. The heads better contour your face, providing a better cut. The unit charges quickly, one hour and it also provides an hour of continuous shaving time. Unlike my older model the 9700 cleans easily and when accompanied with the SmartClean option delivers a fresh and clean scent at every shaving. The trimmer is easily interchanged with the shaving heads and unlike my older model, you can easily see the area being worked on. The charged percentage is displayed on the unit and the speed is also adjustable, unlike my old shaver. I like this shaver! And I would recommend it to all of my friends and family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by praveenvj Definately good shaver, but not a close shaver
This shaver is good and easy to use. Does not give shave burns and easy to use with shaving gel. Battery life is excellent and lasts almost 2 weeks.
The clipper is a great add on and allows close trim of side burns and mustache.
The cleaning stand is easy and benefit of charging and cleaning is great.
Only issue is the shave is not close enough and need to run 2 shaves to get a clean and satisfying cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FocusedShopper Excellent shaver, easy to clean
Shaves great. And an automatic cleaning system that really works.
I clean the shaver after every two shaves. My first cleaning cartridge has lasted 10 weeks, and it still doing an excellent cleanup of the shaving heads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teegaboomer Closest Shave in years
Shaves as close as a new razor without the prep and mess. No facial irritation. Does a better job than blades without nicks or cuts. Always clean, charged and ready to do a great job. I got rid of my stypic pencil. Baby soft. I use the brush accessory to do a daily deep clean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by laecutter Nice features and design
Very nice looking quite like the auto wash. Just does not shave that great. First razor I ever had was a Remington electric was great lasted 20 years. last 20 years have used std Dbl blade razor. Last Christmas talk about getting another electric. Wife got me this unit as a Christmas present. Like she said sounds great but just does not give as close of a shave as my double blade razor. Very disappointed was looking forward to the quietness and quickness of an electric shaver.

With about 60 years' shaving behind me, this shaver delivers the closest shave I've ever had. I use it with Cremo shave cream and it's phenomenal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deerstriker Best electric shaver I have owned
Best electric shaver I have owned in my life. I happen to like the smartclean as it cleans and lubricates the shaver helping to give me one of the closest shave I could want day after day. The cost doesn't bother me because I think it is worth it. I also like the idea of shaving with an electric shaver wet, even in the shower. Personal choices for all the addons but some might not like the cost. It was worth it to me.
