Rated 4 out of 5 by Dryshaver Powerless
Even when fully charged, feels and sound like it has little power.
Shaves the face OK but tugs on the neck leaving irritation.
For the price I paid, it's not a bad product.

After so-so experiences with other brands, I decided to treat myself to a 'good' shaver. But the Philips 3000 Series HQ6996 turned out to be a total disappointment. The motor is sadly lacking in power. Even when fully charged it sounds & cuts like it is about to run out of power #charge#. Using the cord doesn't improve the power much. It struggles to deliver a barely adequate shave and really has trouble if the growth is more than one day. Maybe this particular shaver has a deficiency from the outset and is supposed to perform better. But how would I know - I have no basis of comparison. I have given up on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by willard999 This razor has the features of my other Phillips Razors and I do like the shape of this razor.
This razor is one of the worst razors that I have purchased from the Philips Razor Company. It has to be plugged in the shave with and the electric cord is in the way all the time I'm trying to shave. The razor also makes a noise that keeps you thinking something is not right with the movement of the shaving blades. Over all, I'm sorry I purchased this Brand of razor.

Had Phillips for 60 years and this is the best one yet. Started when I was 24 and now 84 and both are still going strong....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoser All the features I wanted at a great price
I previously had an older Philips shaver (that lasted years and years!) and when the moustache/sideburn trimmer broke, I needed to find a replacement. In today's age or rechargeable, cordless shavers, it was not easy to find a corded shaver with a pop-up trimmer, but this model is exactly what I wanted. Works great!
