I have pretty much been a blade and shaving lather person during all of my years shaving. I have embraced other technologies as they have come along.

It appeared that, now, electric shaving has equaled or surpassed the blade. I decided "what the hell" now ought to be the time to try the new razors. If the 1280 lives up to expectations, it offers more flexibility than blade and lather.

Philips Norelco has earned a good reputation over the years. They've been around for a quite a while too.

I purchased this four-months ago and was fairly happy with its performance. Starting about two-months in, I noticed that the maximum charge the shaver was holding was diminishing rapidly. As of today it only charges to about 59 minds left. I contacted Phillips and was told to let the unit completed discharge (until it commpletly stopped working) three times in a row and it SHOULD hold a charge better. During this time, I would not be able to charge or clean the shaving heads with the jet clean liquid. As a note, a complete discharge can take over 7 days.

So I did this three times going about 7 days between each cleaning and charging and it still does not charge fully. We can now send it in for warranty servive for 6-8 weeks.

The whole point of units like this is the ability to clean the heads frequently so I'm thinking it's time to head back to the old shave cream and disposable razor!

      This is a very good electric shaver. My only complkaint is the battery. The first time I charged it, the battery had 60 minutes of use time. However, everytime I charged it after that the battery charge decreased. I brought this item in February,2014 and the charge time is dowm to 46 minutes. I rewad aeview on this site from another buyer who said he contacted the manufacturer who suggested to let the battery completely drain out 3 times and it should start to take a full charge after that. I did this and it did not work. Excellent shaver, POOR battery charging.

            I've only been using this razor for a while, but am impressed with the ease of use, smooth and painless shaving and simple cleaning/recharging. Only trick is to not let the beard get very thick - for me, 2 days without shaving is the max to go without shaving to avoid slight pinching. Would highly recommend and am very pleased!

              I used to use a Braun foil electric razor and am so pleased with this Norelco Senso Touch Electric Razor. You can use either as a dry razor or you can use it wet in the shower. Also, you do not have to use special cleaing solution (saving you money) and a cleaning apparatus every time you shave - you just open the shaver heads and clean with hot water after each use. Lastly, you do not have to keep the razor perpetually charged (saving electricity). You only have to recharge when the unit tells you to, about once or twice per month and the recharge is very fast. I wuld recommend this to every man that wants an easy, fast, and close shave without irritation.

                Product quality is excellent and shaving I get are great !!! Meet all my expectations. Only drawback is that the carrying case does not have a charge connection, so for travel you need to carry with the shaver stand also.

                  I have used a Braun Syncro (Series 3) for 10 years before purchasing this. I really like the Norelco. It does work very differently. I miss the way the Braun charged/cleaned. It had an option to just clean and not chare. The Norelco automatically charges after cleaning. It's also harder to carry in luggage because of its design.

                  I've used the Norelco for over two weeks. There is still some irritation. I expect this becuase my skin is still getting used to the new razor. I love how quiet it is. It does not seem to shave as close as the Braun. However, I alway had an area of irritation using the Braun. That has gotten better once I switched to the Norelco. I also like how you can clean the Norelco under the faucet, although I wish I could use the charging station/cleaner every day instead. As mentioned earlier, it automatically charges. This isn't such a good thing for the batteries. The Norelco also does not get sideburns as straight. This is no surprise. All in all, I'm happy with the decision.

                      Philips Norelco Shaver 8900 Model 1280X/42

                       – Upgrade your shaving experience for the 21st century with the Philips Norelco Shaver 8900 Model 1280X/42, which grants you more control over your personal grooming than ever before.

                      Pushing the Envelope



                      Previously known as the SensoTouch 3D, the Philips Norelco Shaver 8900 Model 1280X/42 represents the most technologically advanced of the Philips line of shavers. The innovation behind its construction will be obvious during your first morning shave with this impressive and reliable tool.

                      Say goodbye to uneven stubble due to clumsy and crude shavers: The Philips Norelco Shaver 8900's GyroFlex 3D design means that the three remarkably flexible UltraTrack heads faithfully follow the contours of your skin for efficient and comprehensive pruning, even of those tough-to-reach hairs along the jawline.

                      Given their precision and the effective lift-and-cut action, the shaver's heads don't require more than a couple of strokes to catch and cut each and every hair.

                      Beyond the acuteness of the GyroFlex 3D system, you also benefit from a comfortable, ergonomically designed grip so that holding the shaver doesn't tax your hand or wrist even as you're thoroughly attending to all the nooks and crannies of your face. SkinGlide technology from Philips, meanwhile, ensures your shaves aren't aggravating your skin.

                      A precision trimmer makes fine-focus beard, sideburn, and moustache grooming easy. And because of its Aquatec seal, you can use the Philips Norelco Shaver 8900 Model 1280X/42 either with shaving cream or foam or on its own for a dry shave.

                      Easy to Maintain



                      The Philips Norelco Shaver 8900 Model 1280X/42's standout features aren't just restricted to shaving action. The Jet Clean+ System, which cleans, lubricates, and finally charges the unit automatically, makes upkeep an absolute breeze. Indicators clue you in to the status of the battery, charge, and shaving-head condition.

                      Flexible, thorough, and easy to maintain: The Philips Norelco Shaver 8900 Model 1280X/42 can transform your personal grooming.
