Don't waste your money


My son bought one the same time I did and his experience is the same.


Don't waste your money. The Norelco Arcitec series is worthless. Take your time and read the negative feedback posted on other sites ; I got one good shave, then it picked and pulled my hair. My face was so raw after four days, I had to stop using it....

Quality shaver...worth the noise!


Quality razor, provides clean, close shave. Only drawbacks are that it has a very small trimmer for sideburns, and that the razor is a bit noisy. I\'ve come from the last generation Norelco, and this is definitely a step up. Just got it, and haven\'t...

Good, but not perfect


I had used Norelco razors for many years, and my last one had kept going for about seven or eight years. It was losing its ability to give a close shave, and probably needed new blades, and possibly new heads. I faced the dilemma many people face when ...

Shaves well, looks cool, very quiet, holds charge well

Badly placed trimmer, cannot be used when plugged in

1050x - My Thoughts


I purchased a Norelco 1050x a few days ago on sale at Target for $139.99. Last two razors were Norelco eletrics, last one being a Spectra. I have a very very rough beard and have used it 3 times ... and I cannot for the life of me figure out why all...

Nice design

Questionable value based on cost

Product Specifications

Offering a 360 degree swiveling shaving head and a state-of-the art sleek design, arcitec is the most advanced Philips Norelco shaver yet. Compared to other Philips Norelco shavers, arcitec offers new flex & pivot technology, a more aerodynamic design, and an advanced tube trimmer. The unique flex & pivot technology delivers an exceptionally close shave. Three individually flexing shaving heads are connected by a ball joint system making them swivel, rotate, and pivot with a full range of motion. The maneuverability allows arcitec to adjust to the contours of your face ensuring optimum skin contact and a closer shave -- even on the neck. The new arcitec Shaver is designed to push the boundaries of shaving and to conquer those hard to shave areas. The arcitec 1050 comes encased in a premium black lacquered shell. Drawing inspiration from high fashion, the razor is loaded with black chrome and metal accents. A true state-of-the-art look. Cutting edge innovation doesn't stop with the shaver. Now you can recharge your shaver while you store it, with the Power Pod travel case that plugs into the wall and protects your investment. While at home, you can recharge your shaver in its sleek stand and show off this modern addition to your bathroom shelf. For those sideburns, goatees and moustaches, the new patented precision tube trimmer cuts hairs closer to the skin. This improved performance is due to the tube cutting system moving back and forth capturing every hair. All of these improvements and new introductions make it possible for you to conquer your neck to look and feel your best! Chart your course with the new Philips Norelco arcitec and be confident you're getting a perfectly close shave -- even on the neck.
