Aquatouch S5420/06 Men's RazorI have been using Philips electric razors continuously for 57 years, from the early twin-head mains only days! They have always been very reliable. Very light with a long duration on one charge, their rechargeable ranges have been great to take backpacking/wild camping as well as for weekends away.
This latest model is very light and has a short charge time, making it the best yet. It can be rinsed clean too. Great cut.

Pretty good razor.I am pretty happy with this razor but will never be as good a manual shaver.
I have used this shaver and charged battery twice and it gives you quite a few shaves before it needs recharging.
What i have found out that no use charging razor before it goes flat as it just decharges the battery and i found out i only got 2 minutes shaving and had to recharge but if you wait till the shavers lets you know with it flashing you only need to charge for one hour and that will last a few weeks if you only use once a day.
I have only used razor dry on skin and never used it wet with shaving cream.
I normally clean shaver daily with a soft brush but if you use water to clean it make sure water hot as i found out if cold it does not clean it.
But i am happy with it.

Best shave experience by farI was not sure about electric shaver having used conventional razor for 35 years. I read previous reviews and researched this model against foil types, I decided on the Philips brand series 5000 wet and dry shaver.
I used for about one week and not really getting perfect results, was not bad just not as good as conventional razor. Then I came across Shaving Oil, combined with my Philips shaver I can honestly say I am delighted it is the "King of Shaves".
I love the wet and dry feature and the ease of cleaning the unit. I have had no problems in the few weeks I have been using the product.
I would say it takes a number of attempts to get the right method of shaving but my advice is persevere it will be worth it.

A good and reliable shaverHaving used only Philips shavers for many years I wanted to update to a newer model as my current one was nit giving a close shave.
I noticed the S5420/06 model in a supermarket and decided it had all the features - and more - that I required and have been satisfied since my purchase.
I have always preferred a dry shave and continue to use it in this way with the wet option available.
Also need to trim my moustache and sideburns regularly so the precision trimmer is essential and helpful though as its not attached having to pull off the shaver head and click on the trimmer is not the most convenient method!
The actual shave is excellent taking off all stubble and leaving a smooth skin.

Great ShaverI brought the Philips Aquatouch S5420 to replace my Philips Arcitec swivel head shaver. Both of these have proved to be excellent shavers. Given that, in my opinion, no electric shaver can ever match a 'wet shave', this Aquatouch comes very very close to doing so. I sometimes leave my shave for 2-3 days, but it copes beautifully. So easy to clean under a running cold tap and then leave to air dry, feels good to hold, battery keeps charge extremely good. Haven't yet used the trimmer attachment, but don't see any problem with that. Also haven't yet used shaver in shower as is not my way, but will try for curiosity. Would definitely recommend this shaver, well done Philips !

Disappointing!I've had Philips shavers for years and loved everyone. As my last one had reached the end of it's life I decided to "upgrade" to this, more stylish, model but I have to say I was disappointed. Although it looks great it shaves no better than the older models and I find a couple of things extremely annoying and which I put down to bad design. Firstly the separate clip-on trimmer is clumsy and nowhere near as convenient as the built-in trimmer on the old model and secondly who thought of putting the on/off button right where your thumb fits? so I regularly turn it off 3 or 4 times during a shave. If only it performed as good as it looks!

Comfort and convenienceNow that I've used this shaver daily for few weeks, I'm more than happy with it; believe the guide leaflet - getting used to it is vital. I get a good shave just using it with a quick mist of pre-shave, but for the cleanest, most comfortable hassle-free shave I use a little shaving gel.
Keep it clean, let it discharge before recharging and it seems very well behaved. If I have one minor reservation it's that the on/off switch is in a place which is easy to nudge accidentally while shaving. Not the end of the world, but maybe something designers could reflect on as future models are projected.
All in all, very happy with my razor.

This shaver has not lived up to its promise of a good shaveI have used Phillips electric shavers since 1951 and have been very happy with them and their improvements over the years. Last December I purchased an Aqua touch and at first was quite satisfied with its shave performance. Unfortunately its ability to deliver a close shave started to diminish after about two months until now at six months I am about to take it back to where I purchased it as it no longer has the ability to give me an acceptable close shave. The shaver heads have deteriorated to an unacceptable level and should have lasted at least for a couple of years before needing to be replaced.
