Gives good close shave; easy to hold; easy to clean; easy to charge & holds charge well

Slightly long time needed to get best shave

Philips HQ 8170 CC SPEED XL

 

lightweight and ergonomic design

terrible shave, plucks rather than cuts, would never never never buy another PHILISHAVE shaver if this is the standard and would certainly never recommend one to one of my friends.

Great performance, easy charge cradle, lightweight

Jet clean fluid doesn't last long, placing in cradle autocharges it (can't be good for battery all that charging)
