great shave


Not a fan of having to dock it to charge it, there should be an option to plug directly into the shaver in order to finish a shave, like they always had until recently.

great shave right out of the box, cleans easy, modern and stylish.

shave head blocks your view when using the trimmer. I turn off the shaver in mid-shave often because the switch is so big i bump it when shaving my neck. Just a matter of getting used to, not worth knocking off an egg.

Great Shaver!!


I switched to a foil type shaver a few months ago after using a rotary type for many years. Finally after getting poor shaves I switched back to Norelco. This is the best shaver I've ever used!!

A little expensive but worth it.

I've used electric razors for over 30 years, including several Norelco's and some foil shavers. This is the best shaver I have used to date. I have not used the included attachable trimmer, so I can not comment on that. This shaver & a Br**n were top...

Large shaving surface speeds up shave time. Quiet & quick, pretty close shave for an electric razor. Battery life seems decent.

Large shave heads can be tricky shaving below nostrils, but not a big deal. It has a pop up trimmer if you miss a spot.

Great with old blades - buy with caution


Bought this 2 years ago. Excellent shave. Other than quality of shave, the best bit about this shaver was the ease of cleaning. Each head pops up and can be rinsed under the tap. Leave to air dry, then flip each blade down. Simple, quick, no fiddly...

Best shaver heads


This model has the original 3D shaver heads. HQ12 Rare to find them. The heads alone sell for more than this shaver. Buy it if you can find it.

Great shaver


I bought this shaver for my husband and he loves it so far. It shaves close and is easy to charge and clean. He replaced a $300+ Braun razor that had a clean and renew setup and he thinks this shaver shaves closer for less than half the price.

Does the job


I like the pivoting heads a lot. They allow for nice movement across the face. I do not like the trimmer on the back. Previous trimmers on other models do a better job. I also do not like that it has a cradle. The cradle has to be out all the time for...
