Rated 5 out of 5 by Gerry Ease and simplicity
It is the easiest to use, electric shaver that I have owned. The fact that it is battery powered means hat you can use it wherever you wish. The charging takes very little time and the display is simplicity itself. After shaving a simple rinse out and you are done.
the head unplugs and the trimmer plugs in, how simple can you get.

Shaves extremely well, good close shave, , nice design to hold, good battery life, have had Philips shavers for many many years and this is another quality product. No doubt in the many years to come, I will buy another Philips.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pete74 not good
Owned Philishave smartouch xl for years excellent razor and will keep on using it as long as possible having bought the 5460 which I do not like very odd shape difficult to hold comfortably and heads are too big at least it cuts well big backward step Philips will only use it as a emergency backup.
Might have to think about buying a competitors razor and write this razor off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kewldog Good Good and not so Good........
Its been about 7 years since I used an electric razor... that one was a Philips too. So I finally decided to go get another new one. This one was the lowest priced one not made in China (Netherlands) and looked the part so I bought it from the Shaver Shop. When I got home I put it on charge and read the instructions. Then waited a few hours later for the 3 little lights the instructions told me would light up in succession to tell me it was fully powered up. No three little lights? Put it back on charge.... waited till the next morning... no three little lights then either. I tried the shaver (after unplugging it) and loved the feel on my face.... it wasn't the closest shave that a safety razor does, but I remember somewhere I had read that it takes a number of shaves with an electric shaver to 'condition' the beard for an electrical assault.... fine.... and now after a few weeks (not shaving everyday) it does a good enough job. BUT... there is a design problem the user has to get used to.... when you're holding the razor shaving your face your thumb tends to press down on the OFF switch and the shaver stops. I believe it could have been designed differently,, however, all in all, the electric razor was worth the money and I'll grow more fond of it in the coming weeks.
By the way.... I rang the Shaver Shop and asked about the three lights that were mentioned in the Operating Manuel and was told there really was ONE light. I guess Philips was trying to trick me, huh?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Plavi Good value for money
product is well designed, a little bit bigger than expected, easy cleaning, shaving results acceptable, but not impressive, but I have used it for couple weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Timmy Gentle on skin!
Have had several Philips shavers but this one is the best by far.
Plenty of practical features but the best bit is the super close shave but still how gentle it is on my skin. No shaver burn whatsoever with this model compared to previous models.
