After years of resecrh, I have found & happily confirm my shaving utopia... The "TripleTrack" HQ9 blades and the option of Wet OR Dry shaving are what sets this shaver apart ... shaving effortlessly, smoothly, thoroughly and easily cutting in all directions in which facial hairs naturally grow. Shaving with this shaver takes no more time than manually shaving, and if you choose Wet shaving with Foam or Gel or Cream or Oil - I have tried all four !! - the comfort you get is unparalleled. I have been shaving for well over 45 years. I have tried manual shavers - ranging from low to medium priced, and from straight/single blade to multiple-blade - as well as electric, plus I have tried several brands and types - rotary & reciprocating - each for extended periods of time - months, not days. The AquaTouch I just bought is my 2nd Philips shaver that uses the "TripleTrack" blades, the first one - which I still have in perfect working condition, after several years - is not intended for Wet shaving. I love both shavers, but especially this Aquatouch for the option of Wet shaving and the feel that it gives & which I thoroughly enjoy. I have now tried 5 different pre-shaving products to get a feel for their individual pros & cons comfort. I have tried pre-shave electric, foam, gel, cream and oil - although the two latter products are not recommended in the Philips User Guide, and they did gum the blades some, requiring an actual cleaning versus a quick & easy under-the-tap rinse that is sufficient for the pre-/foam/gel options. In all cases, the shaver performed exquisitely. It did the job in about the same time I like to take to shave manually - I enjoy shaving, and take my time - and the shaver did a very thorough job, everywhere. When I say everywhere, I especially mean in neck area - being in my 60s, I have some "extra" skin :-0 in my neck area, as well as skin tags, both facts which require paying proper attention when shaving manually so as not to nick myself. The shaver also did a great job all around the chin area, which is where I have experienced some nicks with manual blades as well as with reciprocating electric shavers, albeit it rarely with the latter - happened when I pushed against the skin too hard. Even when I have pushed too hard against the skin with the Philips shaver, my skin would not get nicked - I would just hear the shaver cutter blades "mildly grinding" against the combs, telling me "ease up" on the pressure, buddy... The "Lift and Cut" technology Philips employs sounds a little like marketing hype...but it really works. When done shaving, my wife invariably makes a comment about how my face feels exactly like our grandkids' baby-butts... I think that is a complement? And, as far as the infamous "5 o'clock shadow" I must honestly state that at suppertime, my facial hairs are invisible and are - according to my wife - virtually identical to the touch whether I have used the Philips or manual shavers... The AquaTouch is a comfortable shaver to hold & grip, neither awkward nor heavy/tiresome to use. The flexible head-suspension works well, and forms nicely to nooks and crannies as one moves around the face. The finish is attractive/professional looking, and if this shaver is anything like the model I had previously - similar but without the Wet shave feature - the finish remains perfect-looking throughout its' life. I expect the longevity of this model will be similar to the previous one I was using, and which had zero need for repairs. The ONLY thing I did was change the HQ9 blades when the cutting quality fell off a bit - for my beard type, the blades did last a little longer than the recommended annual change interval. Of course I understand each person will experience a different durability just as is the case with manual blades. The new shaver batteries seem to last about 60 minutes of shaving time, as stipulated by Philips. The previous model - I still have on hand - has batteries that last about 100 minutes on a charge, even with the original batteries and after years of use / charge cycles. This is not a significant feature difference as far as my needs go. Bottom line: Philips makes fabulous electric shavers. If you want a top-performing shaver, make sure you get a model with TripleTrack blades and Lift and Cut technology, and with a flexible head to "mold itself" to your face as you move it around. Not only do I heartily recommend their shaver, I would buy another in an instant, for myself or as a gift !! 1 January 2014
Perfect manual razor replacement After just one use, this electric shaver performed just as well as my manual razor, and I even used it dry! There's barely any tug and pull; it just glides smoothly across my face. It's also very easy to clean, and there's no worry about getting it wet, because it's 100% waterproof! I would definitely recommend Phillips' line of electric shavers. 25 December 2013

It is the smoothest shave that I have ever experienced. This razor just glides around on your face and you are shaved before you know it. It's the first one that I can really say that is a very smooth shave. Keep it up Philips you finally have a very fine shaver. 19 August 2013
