Where to buy any of these Philips Norelco shavers?

You can either go to your local store or buy through an online store. For me personally Amazon is the best place to buy electric shavers. I've tried Best Buy, Ebay and a couple of other reputable online stores but the best one out of all of them is Amazon by far.

I've gone through these electric shavers and the Amazon prices for them are as low as they can get so if you're considering buying one of them, Amazon is the place to get them from! I can't post links but if any of the mods or admins can post them below that'd be great Smile

RE: Top Ten Philips Norelco Electric Shavers for Men Reviews
Couldn't decide where this comment and question went, so I apologize if it's in the wrong forum.

I have been shaving with a Panasonic arc5 shaver for the last 2 years. This Panasonic electric razor gives a close shave but it's loud and it also misses areas around the jaw and jawline. I bought a Panasonic shaver on the cheap, I think that it was a 3500 shaver which is waterproof and has a simple cord charger. It's great as far as noise level goes and shaving the jaw area, etc.

Here's my issue. I have an awful time shaving the mustache area above my upper lip. I tend to cut the corner of my mouth. I try to stretch the area but it's awkward. My question is whether the newer models with highly mobile shaving heads do shave this area any better than the Panasonic shaver that I have? Thanks all.

I find Panasonic heads too large to comfortably shave the upper lip area; that as well as simply being too loud for my ears to tolerate the shaver's noise in the morning. For me, the Norelco rotary shavers are the perfect combination: quiet, comfortable, less irritating and provide a close shave. What is missing in the above description of the ten best Norelco shavers is a description of the heads of those shavers (i.e. the cutters and the individual heads). While it is true to a certain extent that some of the newer shavers have more powerful motors, in general the key to a close, comfortable shave is the head and cutters.

I have the latest 9000 series with the RQ12+ heads and an older AquaTech shaver with the HQ8 heads. I find that the older HQ8 heads glide more smoothly over my neck, cheeks and jawline than the newer RQ12+ heads and therefore the HQ8's head provide a better shave. That's not to say that the 9000 series doesn't give a good shave - it does. But that is my experience "when" I am shaving dry. Shaving wet is an entirely different kettle of fish. I then find that either shaver with its different heads provides a shave that is more or less identical. I'm hoping to see a return to the ergonomics of the older AT, XL and Quadra line of shavers with heads similar to the HQ8 and HQ9 or possibly even RQ12+ but we'll have to wait and see what transpires.
