This is my third Philips rotary shaver and I will only buy Philips. Never had one single problem and each have lasted more than five years before requiring replacement. This has alway been down to the heads/blades wearing. I've knocked 10% off a perfect score as the replacement heads should be cheaper than what they are. I don't see the point in paying for new heads when you can buy a new razor for almost the same price. Great service too from!

Had to return the model I bought as I thought it was a mains and battery shaver but discovered on receipt that it was battery only. Swapped it for the model I wanted. All dealt with very promptly and efficiently by Olympic Shaver Co. and would have no problem dealing with them again.
