At last I have found the nearly perfect shaver!I'm a bit of a tech geek. I have several shavers from other manufacturers as well as three other Philips rotary models. I think I have found shaver nirvana - well I'm pretty close anyway.
The 9000 series gives me a very close shave - the closest to a blade wet shave even when I use it dry - which is most of the time. ALL my other shavers leave parts of my face rough where the blades can't remove the hairs very well - each shaver seems to have problems with a different area of my face. The Philips 9000, however, misses nothing. Smooth shave all over. I love the motor - it's definitely a better class of motor. You can tell when you switch it on or off - that very slight delay like a clutch kicking in before the motor starts. I may be sad, but I love that feel. It's extremely quiet too. A thoroughly classy beast - but there again it ought to be given the price!
The one downside is that you have to clean the head by running it under the tap. No problem doing that, but the next day the head is still damp, however well you shake it and this means it doesn't quite glide over your face as smoothly as a bone dry shaver would. I'd say it's a small design flaw with the new style heads.
It's worth buying a can of Philips shaver cleaner - unless you have the model with the cleaning tank accessory. Good to use the spray once a week to keep your shaver in tip-top condition.

Close and comfortable shaveThe series 9000 shaver provides a surprisingly close shave, closer than any other electric shaver I have used in the past. I also have quite sensitive skin and have experienced no irritation when using the 9000 shaver.
It is very user-friendly and comes with a nice travel case, as well as a precision trimmer; this is very useful for edging. However, it doesn't cut as close as the actual shaver head. As it says on the box, it works best with shorter hair 1-3 day growth. I found that if the hairs were too long, the shaver would struggle to lift and cut it.
The shaver can be used as a wet or dry shaver which is very useful if you wish to shave in the shower. Personally, I prefer to use it dry. It also has a lock function, so it doesn't start up when you're traveling around. The battery lasts for a long time, also charges pretty quickly. It would be nice if the shaver came with some sort of stand to house it and the attachments.
Overall it is a great electric shaver, the best I have used regarding closeness and comfort. I would not go back to traditional wet shaving with a razor as it irritates my skin, the series 9000 also cuts much closer than my other electric shaver does. I would recommend this product.

Excellent results from a quick shaveBeen using this shaver for a few weeks and so far I am pleased with the results. The shaver is well designed and feels comfortable to use. It is very quiet and almost gives a sense that it is not fully charged however the battery meter does give an indication of battery life remaining. The charging time is minimal and after a few weeks of daily use the battery meter is still on 3 out of 3 bars.
It is important that you read the manual before using this shaver with regards to how to use especially with regards to head changing (which I found fiddly for the first time, but easy once you know how to do it) and also circular shaving motions to get the great results.
I use the shaver daily and the trimmer weekly both attachments give great results quickly, a close shave and a neat outcome every time.
Cleaning is easy, a simple rinse under the tap of the blades is all that is required, this is again laid out step-by-step in the manual.
Although I prefer a trimmer function built into the unit, the changing of heads is effortless. The only negative issue that I have experienced is that you do have to be careful with the blades as there is no head cover included with this razor.
To summarise a great product which surpassed my prior expectations in all areas with the exception of a head cover which is slightly disappointing. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Almost perfect.This is the closest thing to a blade-shave I have ever found. Even on a 3-day beard, and my 3-day beard is like a normal person's 5-day beard. One full charge will last about 8-10 weeks with an average 5 minute shave 3-4 times a week. Plus, it is so easy to clean.
The only downside, for me, is that I keep catching the on/off switch wit my finger whilst in use. But that could be due to my sausage-fingers. And that is the only reason I did not give it full marks.
Otherwise I have no hesitation in recommending this product.

Performance is poorI have struggled with this shaver for months, the shaving performance is so poor compared with my previous Philips, that I only stopped using as the heads were no longer available.
My wife bought me a 5000 series for christmas and it shaves as well as my old original.
As I have both the 9000 and 5000 now I find the shaving head is interchangeable, I could have bought a new head albeit for the 5000 and used it on the 9000. It seems the new 3D head technology of the 9000 is rubbish.

Great shaverDoes a very close shave, comfortable to hold and so quiet to use.
Terrific battery life and quick charging.
Hair beard trimmer needs to be attached but that is a minor quibble.
I have fine skin and i find the rotary blade to give an excellent close shave with low irritation..much better than electric blade shavers.

This product is very quite compared to my previous electric shaverIt is very quite and is very good on a couple of days growth providing a very close smooth shave. It is easy to charge and clean with good visual LED indicators. It feels more challenging to obtain a close shave by side burns, ears and under the nose. Overall a very good electric wet or dry shaver.

Better than everI have never been so impressed by a new product, it really is better than a blade and a big improvement on my previous Philips shaver. So smooth and quick now to have a shave. Simply the best I have ever experienced and well worth the extra investment in the top of the range shaver.
