Hi Guys,

Any comments between the Philips 8000 series or Braun Activator series...

Thanx...
Philips doesn't make good shavers. Period. ;)

Braun... I am using a Phlips electric shaver and it sucks big time. Diff to get clean shaves. Only my wallet is stopping me from getting a new Braun, which I hope to, soon.

My PRECISE sentiments. I have never used a Philips shaver that I liked.

Friends don't let friends use Philips shavers :bsmilie:

hehe.. I currently have a Philips 8000 series shaver and my dad is kinda wanting (he REALLY WANTS it actually) it.... So, still deciding whether to get another one for him, or give him mine, and get a Braun.... I find the design of Braun better, and seems easier to get good shaves around the nose and lower neck area......

Hehe guys.. I do have THINK BEARD... :bsmilie: and really hope I can make a wise choise.....

Too add to that, I still have my good old gillette shaver that I use once a while... I just takes too long to put the shaving foam and shave when I only have a short while to get ready to work....

So, any more comments on that?????

Yeah right, that's why my Philips shaver is still going strong after 25 years of daily and frequently twice daily use.

Ian, the ones 25 years ago might be good, but I find that I have to shave twice everytime I pull out the Philips. The second time immediately with a Braun just to get a clean shave the Philips fails to deliver. Hahaha!

But hey, maybe your face and whiskers are Philips friendly :bsmilie: Good on you mate, good on you.

[BTW, all my male friends agree with me, about Philips shavers being pointless]

I used Philips shaver, then switched to Braun. seems to gives pretty good shave until the foil got damaged and I was almost badly cutted. Can you imagine one of the little link in the foil broke and jut out as you run the shaver across your face??! Ugly! :~(
So I switch back to Philips. May not be cleanly shaved but hey my face is still as handsome as before. :) :)

The foil got damaged and almost badly cut your face... That sounds like something really bad with foil design then. :thumbsd: . Anybody got anything comments on that???

I used a cheapo Braun 3770 and never could get a clean shave! I bought it myself, so offcourse going for the cheaper ones :).....

Then my girlfriend gave me a Philishave 686 and always get a clean shave since then. I don't know how a cheapo Braun compares to the better Braun shavers, but Philips is good enough for me.

If you really want a good shave you have to do a wet shave..........

You guys must press REALLY hard most of the time. :bsmilie: The thing with foil shavers is that you shouldn't. It's even in the instructions.

Your opinion can't be trusted here because of the obvious Dutch bias against the Germans!!! :nono: Such shameful partisan behaviour! :bsmilie:
