Blades, foils and circular saws Review with images

Advantages mains/battery with fast charge, 50 minute battery life

Disadvantages tricky on/off switch

"...stock the full range of Philips shavers but Comet stock the Speed XL the HQ 8150, HQ 8160 and HQ 8170 then jump to the Smart Touch range HQ 9190.

Phiilips HQ8160

Advantagesquickest shave I've experienced

Disadvantagescan leave neck a bit sore

"I paid about £100 for this, so was expecting big things, given that my remington twin foil was only £40 but quite old and in need of replacement. My initial reaction was that of feeling you don't get what you pay for here. Having compared many shavers, a bulk of the money is going on the Li-Ion battery. In this regard it is fast charging, has a full charge indicator, a battery low warning light and 18 days of shaving. Also a 3 minute quick charge. Okay, ..." Read review
