Best Norelco shaver yet!As with many of the other reviewers, I have used Norelco shavers for years. I shave my head as well as my face. The main problem I have had is irritation shaving my neck and not getting a close shave on my head. This has been due to lack of flexibility of the shaver head as well as blade design perhaps I feel. With this new model I am able to shave my neck and head closely with no irritation for the first time and am amazed. I still occasionally use the blades for an extra close shave for special occasions, but it is great to finally get what I have dreamed of in an electric shaver.

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!

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.

Very pleasedI decided to upgrade from a older lower end version of Philips electric razor I had for many years. I had a high Braun but I ended up preferring rotary to foil for my face. I am very pleased with the razor, ease of use and its close shave. I am happy I paid the extra to get the top model at this time.

can't replace headsI have tried to clean the heads with the fluid and by taking the head apart to manually clean them. The heads don't stay sharp. And they are not replaceable. This makes a very expensive razor useless.

Blade cuttingThe blades sound like they are grinding against the blade cage and sound like they will wear down the blade cage. I am concerned about this.

ImpressiveI purchased a previous top of the line razor less than a year ago; model 1280 I believe. I dropped the razor about six feet breaking the head and contorting the blade assembly rendering it unusable. I was SO happy with it that I decided to order a replacement without knowing that it was replaced by the 9700 series.
What a product! Love the digital readout, the advanced blade assembly, the easy cleaning and lubrication process, and the marvelous job it does at taking care of my beard! I use it with wet shaving using my favorite silver tip brush and shaving cream. My only gripe: the facial brush head assembly is not currently available.

Norelco user for over 40 yrs!Replaced my 1280 with the 9700 after speaking with a Norelco customer service rep who said it's the best they have ever made & shaves your head baby smooth. Have used it now for 4 months & have to say I don't find it much different from the 1280 with a new shaving head. Not impressed yet considering the price. Still like Norelco as other shavers I've tried don't cut my whiskers as well! Also liked the trimmer on the razor as opposed to a separate attachment.
