Whilst I am unable to review this particular shaver, as I have bought it as a birthday present for my brother. I can say that, as with previous dealings with 'Shavers' that the shaver was delivered quickly and was well packed and that I can recommend 'Shavers' as a company to do business with

I am certainly not disappointed in this one, easy to use and gives a very close shave. Delivery was very fast, less than 24 hours. Thank You.

No trimmer

I have long been a fan of Philips shavers, this being my 5th. After replacing the blades several times on my old 3000 Series, I thought for the extra I would buy a new shaver. However this model does not have the trimmer my old one had - a handy feature. The new one cuts fine, is light and comfortable to hold and good value for money - but consider whether a trimmer would be useful?
