Close smooth shave. Folding charging stand (the one in the photo isn't). Lithium battery lasts a week on one charge with daily shave. Quick charge and battery remaining charge indicator. The shaving heads are hinged and opens up for easy clean under warm water. Overall happy with this product. Much better than the sensotouch 2D I Used to have. Hoping it lasts more than the 2 yrs the other one lasted before the switch gave in!
I just wanted to comment that this product is excellent. I bought one for my husband 2 years ago and it works very well (you know how some women prefer their men to have smooth chins and cheeks). The device is very quiet, and it is easy to clean. One thing you need to pay attention to is that you need to just charge the shaver until the battery is full, then unplug it, otherwise you might burn it out. We made this mistake but had the unit replaced. ALSO after knowing this detail, the battery life is EXCELLENT. You don't have to charge the device for weeks...so for the guy who commented that you have to bring the whole base with you to charge the shaver on a trip, you don't really need to if it's a short one. (You can see the battery life gauge on the device and test it out for yourself).
I had 2 of these units and even though they say you can use in the shower water finds its way inside. After the failures where the motor won't run any more I dismantled them and found nasty corrosion on all the contacts which tells me water is getting inside.. Stay away from this product.
It was a close shave, but Philips 3D is a far superior product, @ a great price! :-) whisker quiet operation! Easy to clean. Nice travel case. Made in the Netherlands.
Just bought it and cracked it open and used it first thing in the morning and was very happy how close the shave was! I can now throw away all my blades away! Now shaving is so much faster and cleaner without potential cuts. This shaver is very quiet and works like a charm. Recommended over the 2d version. Phillips makes the best shaver out there and Braun follows second. Get this and you won't regret it.
I bought this shaver and used it exclusively for three weeks to allow the skin and beard to adjust to the new shaver but I never got a close-enough shave.
* Very nice design and decent build quality
* Extremely quiet
* Very easy to clean (and cheap - use only hot tap water)
* Can be used wet (although I only used it dry)
* Large shaving area means quicker shaves
* The heads remained somewhat cool during the shave
* Did an OK job on the hard to shave areas (below the jaw line and neck area)
* The shave overall wasn't close (needed to shave daily with this one - I typically shave every 2 days)
* I got some irritation on the neck area and occasionally would bleed (even with light pressure)
* The display is very basic
* The charger does not plug directly into the shaver - need to pack the whole charging base when travelling
* The charger (when the shaver is charging on the base) emits a high pitch electrical sound- replacement unit did the same
* The carry pouch is huge - does not fit in a regular wet pack
I have since purchased a Braun Series 7 760cc and love it. The shave is superior in every way to this, but I won't expand on that here as this is about the Philips RQ1250.
