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.

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!
