Worst performing Norelco razor ever. and twice the price of those that worked.


In order to use this razor at all I have to use a blade razor at least twice a week, otherwise it looks like I haven't shaved at all. This is the worst performing, most expensive Norelco I have used in the past 25++ years!!

Product Specifications

Philips Norelco Arcitec Shaving System model 1090 With 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. Arcitec's 'central drive' technology makes it possible to design an ultra slim ergonomic body that fits snugly in your hand -- making it more comfortable to hold and effortless to use. The central drive technology connects all rotary blades to the shaving motor using only one spindle (axle) for a more comfortable grip.
