Rated 2 out of 5 by THEE 9700 Razor
The 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AlwaysBeenPhilips Very disappointed in replacement accessory quality
I 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.

I 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer disappointed and about to return it
For 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PETE3 SMOOTHEST SHAVE EVER
MY 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by vlns expensive
While 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.
