No, I did not purchase a Sensotec HQ8894 from your site.
Simply because the Philishave 8550 that I purchased in 1997 is still running strong after all these 10 years. I used the shaver daily for all these years and the shaving heads are still performing as if it was newly purchased. The trick is the maintenance. After 9 years, one day the original Ni-Cadmium battery just died on me suddenly. I just went to any hardware shop with some soldering capability and he removed my depleted Ni-Cadmium batteries and replaced it with Sanyo long-lasting Lithium-Ion batteries. Once in 2 mths, I will flush the shaving heads with a strong jet of water to remove the accumulated hair and debrises. Viola, the 5885 shaver nows works like a dream. In fact, just this morning, I almost got a shaving rash, because the cut was so close. Reminded me of my first shave out of the box, in which I got a shaving rash and bits of lost skin because the shave was so new and the shaving was so close to the skin. Hiya, try it you will never know that a Philishave can last more than a decade with some of the best shaves possible. Go buy a Philishave it rocks, works way longer than the previous Brauns, Hitachi shavers that I've encountered
This shaver is amazing: it is everything I am looking for in an electric shaver and more. I cannot recommend the shaver or this company highly enough. If you're considering purchasing an electric shaver then look no further than the 8894. It is subtle, quiet, sleek, stylish...need I go on? Pros: 100 mins cordless shaving time (yes, that`s 100 minutes, guys), wonderful gadetry (you can play around with the display, dial in its head response etc...), tap washable...
Cons = Zero / zilch / nothing / nought.
The price was amazing, though I'm gutted it went down a tenner the day after I purchased it. The free gifts were a welcome bonus.
Everything about this shaver oozes style. If it`s good enough for James Bond (or Jenny, for that matter) then it`ll certanly do for me. Being a guy, one cannot help peeking at Bond with this shaver in action on Die Another Day...and dreaming.
I've used it for under a week, and its performance is truly amazing. To think the shave will get even better as time goes on is quite mind-boggling as I`m already getting a very close shave indeed.
I'm using the shaver with the powder stick, which thanks to the reviews and advice here on this site, has turned out to be a winning combination.
Amazing shaver, amazing price, amazing service! You'd be mad to miss out on this offer. Happy shaving days!
Live in remote region and ordered this item on-line in the afternoon and received it by recorded delivery (with some free goodies!) the following morning. Excellent service from the supplier and I am delighted with the product. The shaver was supposedly used in a film by James Bond, although when I used it and looked in the mirror, I looked more like Jenny Bond! Still - at least I was clean shaven!
