Excellent Shaver


Quick and close shave with 1 hour recharge. Replaces a 10 year old Philips shaver - the right choice.

Just what I wanted


I purchased the Philips 8200 because I needed a travel razor with good battery life. I have not been disappointed, it gives a good shave, and now nearly 2 weeks later is still running on the original charge.

OK but....


I have wet shaved for many years and decided to try electric dry shaving again for the first time since student days. The Philips is a well designed machine, easy to handle, easy to clean under the tap, is quiet and the battery charge lasts well....

Phillips still the best


I have had Phillips rotary shavers for 20 years or more and will continue to do so. Excellent close shave, easy to use and good battery life. As close to faultless as is possible. Good improvement on previous model which I have used daily for 7years....
