Expert review by : Oliver Pickup (

A cut above: The Philips RQ1280 is an impressive, sexy electric shaver - but is it worth the price of 30 Gillette Fusion razors? Read more: http://www


The Romanian proverb, ‘A barber learns to shave by shaving fools,' is a fitting phase to describe my eventual mastery of this new Philips RQ1280 Shaver, though Sweeney Todd would have been proud of my fumbling, foolish initial efforts.

I don’t have to maintain my Gillette Fusion, just clip a new blade in every other month. And with £269.99 I could buy over 30 Fusions, a vast number which would easily serve me, my sons and my grandsons throughout their lifetimes. Who’s the fool now?

Best shaver ever


A very expensive shaver, but worth the cost, it gives the closest shave wet or dry with no shave rash. The cleaner is a great addition & I plan to use it at the end of a full charge as it cleans and charges at the same time.

Best shave ever


My husband says that this is the best shave/razor he has ever had. He is absolutely delighted with his gift that replaced his older version of this item.

High Quality Shaver


I have been using Philips razors for many years. This is the best by far giving a close shave and allows me the luxury of a wet shave if I wish.

Very happy


Never going to be as close as a traditional manual razor, but it is surprisingly close when used with a suitable oil or shaving gel. Easy to keep clean, just rinse - although I will use the cleaning dock about once a month to keep things in tip top...

Excellent !!


I've been shaving with a Philips Shaver 8 series for nearly 10 years and it never let me down, upgrading to the Senso 3D is one of the best things I could ever have done for my skin. The Senso 3D is much smoother to my skin and slide a hundred time...
