Love everything about it but the shave.I have had Braun razors for years and several times I have bought Norelco shavers to give them a try three times now and have had to return them all. I was really hoping that the new cutting system would work better than the others. It just doesn't do the trick. I have since returned to my old brand that gets a much closer shave.

replacement heads??????Thinking about getting a 9000 series? Good luck finding replacement heads. None of the stores you go to will carry them. Not even the one you buy the shaver from ( even if you buy the top of the line s9721 with the smart clean system like I did) Don't believe me? Go to any store you think SHOULD HAVE THEM and look for SH90 Phillips Norelco Series 9000 Replacement Unit or Heads. If you find some you better buy all of them because by now I'm starting to believe they don't even make them any more. The website is always "Out of Stock".
As for the shave itself. Better than I expected. Took a few weeks for my skin to get use to how close the shave was. Leaves skin smooth. I haven't gone more than 3 total days in a row without shaving since I've been using it. Works the best once you figure out how your skin reacts to the closeness of the shave and how often you can shave.
Smart clean system stopped working about 1 year after purchase. Right around the time recommended to replace the shaver heads.
Would make a great gift until they find out about a year later replacement heads are extinct for this shaver!

9700 RazorThe 9700 razor has not worked to my satisfaction. As the blades would not cut as I expected after 6 Mo. the replacement blades are expensive. That makes this expensive razor cost to much to maintain. The heads were washed after every use. The battery life read out is great as well as the trimmer.

Very disappointed in replacement accessory qualityI have had the 9721 shaver for about 2 years now and was very pleased with it the first year. Since the first year, I have had to purchase 3 new sets of shaving heads (original Philips SH90) for About 1/3 the price of the entire unit for each set. I am writing this review as I now have to purchase yet another set and am seriously considering purchasing a different brand of shaver. I had to spend 20 minutes shaving this morning only to feel like I have 5:00 shadow at 9:00 in the morning. I have been a dedicated Philips shaver user for over 35 years but now am sad that I feel like I have to look at other options.

nice shaveI received a free sample of the Phillips 9700 electric shaver for providing an open and honest review of the product. I’ve used electric shavers for the past 20 years and the 9700 is superior to my current shaver as well as others that I have used in the past. The shaver provides a closer shave. The heads better contour your face, providing a better cut. The unit charges quickly, one hour and it also provides an hour of continuous shaving time. Unlike my older model the 9700 cleans easily and when accompanied with the SmartClean option delivers a fresh and clean scent at every shaving. The trimmer is easily interchanged with the shaving heads and unlike my older model, you can easily see the area being worked on. The charged percentage is displayed on the unit and the speed is also adjustable, unlike my old shaver. I like this shaver! And I would recommend it to all of my friends and family.

disappointed and about to return itFor the price, I expected a 'super razor.' Works fine - but not better than the previous Philips I had. The problem is that every 3 weeks - or even less - the razor wouldn't clean, and I'd have to change solution. So, over time, that gets pretty expensive. Also, I travel for work, and the travel case has no room for the electric cord inside it - no big deal, but for all the money this is you'd think you would supply that.

SMOOTHEST SHAVE EVERMY NORELCO NIVEA SHAVER IS ON ITS LAST LEG SO I SPLURGED FOR THE 9721 MODEL. IT IS GREAT WITH SHAVING GEL. I LOVE THE SHAVER AND IT HAS A GREAT CLEANING SYSTEM. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHAVER AS THE BEST IN YEARS. I WISH NIVEA WOULD SELL THEIR SHAVER CREAM IN BOTTLES NOT JUST THE CANNISTERS THAT YOU CANNOT USE.

expensiveWhile this shaver is very, very expensive I like it a lot. I have used a Braun Series 7 for many years. That one is very noisy and has trouble with my neck. The Philips is gentler and very quiet but is not as close using it dry. Using it wet, it is a close as the Braun. So I like both shavers but I like how quiet this one is.
