Excellent Shaver, Excellent Service

I bought this shaver from Olympic and have used it for two weeks now. The features and quality of shave for the price are excellent. I've used both rotary and foil shavers over the last 8 years and have to say that this is the best shaver I have ever used.

I used to get mild irritation from all of my old electric shavers (both foil and rotary), but I get none with this, which I would put down to the Speed-XL heads. The shaver is very well made - the motor is quiet, the batteries charge quickly and hold charge for a long time. The tap washing facility is also very convenient.

The service from was first-rate. The product was delivered on time, and the email and telephone queries I made were dealt with in a friendly, efficient manner, answering my questions with no trouble at all.

I will be recommending this website and the Olympic Shaver Centre to others and will be using them again in the future.
