Philips Norelco PowerTouch dry electric razor PT720/41 ComfortCut heads Flexing heads
The product does the job.
It works well. The only drawback is that, unlike its corded Norelco predecessor, it does not have the mustache/sideburns trimmer. I realized this only after I had cut open the plastic "coffin" in which the unit was encased! I would have much preferred a unit with the trimmer feature I've had on the many Norelco shavers I have had in the past.

So far so good
This is very easy to use and clean and does a good job. Sometimes I'm paranoid that the rinsing the blades and the area that catches the hair will cause water to get into the unit and shorten the life (even though it's designed that way).......but the last Norelco razor lasted 7 years! So here's hoping this one will last as long.

I like this razor
This is my first electric razor. I've always dry shaved with a blade. I was surprised how close it gets and how fast it is. I'm very happy with this product. I got it for Christmas. My only complaint is it lacks the trimmer

Surprising for an electric shaver
I have been a blade man for many years. In the past I could never get a decent shave from electric so I wrote them all off until my new gf (who didn't know of this dislike) bought me this model. I really am amazed that it works so well and gets so close. I have not needed an adjustment period even. I get a close shave from the first use and since then every time. Design is a 4 star only because of the beard trimmer that isn't on this model.

Excellent close shaver
I have used the Norelco razor for over 60 years and this Philps product keeps up the excellent shaving features I have enjoyed over the years.

.Disappointing quality of shave in latest model
My Norelco was getting old so I decided to get a new one as my birthday present to myself. I had the usual problem of trying to choose from among the several confusing, hard-to-compare models, and ended up choosing on price - the cheapest one, since i don't shave in the shower and have no special needs.
First mistake: I didn't realize it does not come with the trimmer that was a feature of the cheapest model the last time I bought it.
In the past month or so, the quality of the shaves just haven't been up to expectations, or up th past standards. I shave and shave and still have stubble. It now takes me twice as long, and a lot of attention, to get an acceptable shave.
The only thing that keeps me from going out and getting some other well-regarded brand is the fact that the unique Norelco design is quiet and low-vibration, whereas the back-and-forth shavers are noisy as heck.
But I am chagrined that my Norelco no longer gives me the quality shaves I had grown accustomed to from the earlier model. I can't guess why: Perhaps cost-cutting has hit Norelco. Perhaps a more expensive model shaves better. How would I know?

Works great for me!
As directed in the manual, "Give it a couple of weeks for your beard to adjust" & it works just great. Four minutes to shave & no cuts or nicks!

Poor battery time. Old unit was better with a once every 10 days for recharge. Blades do not shave as good as the old unit either but this was my fault for selecting this design. Did find that the series 8 blade fits and gives a better shave.
