Very hard to clean bladesI've had Norelco shavers for over 50 years! I bought this new one rather than just replacement blades when my other one got old. This is by far the most cumbersome razor to clean. Each round blade and screen is held in by individual orange plastic rings. Very difficult to put back together - screen, blade then orange ring. Why can't they make a 'lock' for the blades like the old razor --- it just fit over all 3 and with one easy turn, locked it in place. Poor design Norelco.... I'm unsatisfied!

This shaver does a real good job!I have used this shaver for less than a year. I love how close it shaves! However, it has gotten to the point that I have to put the head back on the shaver up to 5 times while I shave only 1 time. I am so aggravated at it that I would not recommend this shaver to anyone. I am sure there are shaver made that can shave as close as this one does without the aggravation!

Close shave so far but design problems - IMOI am an architect, so design is my scene, and I have used Norelco Philips shavers since I started shaving in 1976. I don't have a heavy growth so they usually work fine for me. I replaced an older 4000 style unit with this 9300 &, so far, I am very unimpressed after one week of use. The shave is fine but that's about where it stops. The "Smart Cleaning" system which came with it is a joke and takes hours to complete its cycle. Worst of all however is the design of the body of the unit itself. It looks nice but it is not ergonomic when it comes to holding it with a hand. My 4000 series is shaped to fit a hand naturally and works with ease when shaving. The 9300 is angular and does not fit my hand well at all. While I am shaving my thumb ends up resting on the on/off button & often, I switch the shaver off by accident while I am using it. I wonder how they came up with such a poor design for the grip. For me, it does not feel comfortable or natural at all to hold and I am not happy with this expensive unit. It is also much more bulky than my former unit with a bigger hard case which is a problem for me too as I travel a lot. There were no open samples in the store for me to see when I bought it and I am probably going to return it as I think it is certainly not worth what I paid. Close shave so far but, I think, a poorly conceived and flawed design.

Fantastic? Yes. Perfect? No.This 9300 Series shaver gives me the best electric shave I have ever experienced. I have used electric shavers for about 45 years and the majority have been Norelco shavers. My other razors claimed "blade close" shaves but always fell somewhat short. The 9300 meets that boast on my face. I don't know if it's the SH90 heads or the 8-way flex, whatever it is works great for me.
I don't shave in the shower or otherwise wet-shave but the water proof, rinsable, design lends itself to easy cleaning. The Inclusion of the Smart Clean system is a superb addition. This is my first experience with this type of accessory. The ability to give the razor a thorough cleaning and lubrication should help keep the blades fresh and the cutting efficient. What I don't care for is the fact that the cleaning automatically switches to charging when done. Batteries typically have a charge-cycle limit before they exhibit degraded performance. To have the base charge the razor every cleaning may lead to premature failure. For this reason I only put my razor into the Smart clean once weekly. The rest of the time I pop the razor under hot water and air dry. (this is why only 4 stars).
In closing let me just say that this razor may seem pricey but it is well worth the extra money for "the perfect electric share".

Quick smooth shavePhilips gave me the opportunity to try the Philips Series 9000 Wet and Dry shaver and I am very impressed.
The package comes with complete with charger, cleaning station/charger, shaver, trimmer attachment, and carrying case. The shaver needed to be plugged in for about an hour to be fully charged. I never used the shaver in the shower so I can’t say how it would operate wet but I was impressed with the dry shave. The heads float nicely and have a lot of pivot to curve around the jawline and mouth. The blades were sharp and gave me a very smooth shave. The shaver has 3 speed settings for different days growth.
The shaver comes with the automatic cleaning station/charger. It is very simple, just insert the cleaning fluid and drop the shaver in after use. It does a decent job of cleaning the shaver and the cleaning solution gets the shaver to smell “fresh and clean”. The cleaning cycle takes a good 2-3 hours. Instructions state that the cleaning solution should be changed every 3 months. I wouldn’t say the cleaning base is a necessity as the shaver can be cleaned easy by removing the heads and rinsing it under the faucet. Overall I am very pleased with this shaver as it doesn’t pull any hairs and gives a nice smooth shave in a very short amount of time.

Modern Shaver, Different ExperienceI received the Philips Shaver to review and I really like it. The design of the shaver is unique and modern and It works great. It is a very fast shaver and it gives me the closest smoothest shave that I have ever experienced and also the charge of battery lasts for a long time. I can move fairly quickly over my face within different angles . It has a very convenient-automatic cleaning system that I can clean it just in seconds. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality electric shaver.

Blades need replaced oftenI am very disappointed with my series 9000 razor. The blades in his razor stay sharp for only 2 to 3 months. For the money I paid, I would expect much better especially for someone like myself who has a fairly light beard. I refuse to pay the high replacement cost for blades every 2 to 3 months.

Great design, good performanceI received the Philips Shaver to review and I loved it. The Philips Series 9000 is quiet, light and effortless, while also achieving a very close smooth finish. First of all the design is amazing, and handling the shaver is super easy and comfortable while shaving, so the design of the shaver is really a big advantage. The three circular blades looks more advanced than the older models, and they do a great job shaving to a smooth finish, but I found that it can’t shave all the hair in one shot, you need to go back and forth couple times to get a smooth finish. Also, the flexible head while shaving did a great job shaving all the areas of the face as it can go along all the face contour. The most thing I loved about this shaver is that it has many operating levels, low, medium and high, according to your needs. Cleaning the shaver is easy especially when using the solution that comes with it, I recommend to clean it right after you finish shaving because it would be much easier. Also being able to shave while you’re showering is a big advantage as it could save you time and effort, but of course shaving on a dry skin results in a smoother finish. One thing made this philips shaver more advanced than the others is its noise, it’s not noisy at all, very quiet and doesn’t have that bzzz sound. All in all I loved this shaver, the design is great, the performance is good but it could be better and charging the shaver is super easy and convenient. I gave it 4 stars not 5 just because it doesn’t give you a smooth finish from one shave.
