Going for a model that does not come with a cleaning station makes sense as the operational costs are quite high. Cleaning under running water and the occasional use of cleaning sprays such as the HQ110 is good enough to keep the Philips RQ1175 rotary shaver in tip-top condition.
The following are the most important advantages of the RQ1175/16 SensoTouch Shaver:
Very comfortable to hold in the hand
Thorough shave, both wet and dry
3 years warranty
If you are not keen on wet shaving, you will be convinced otherwise after using this shaver as the result is rather impressive. You may however have to do so on weekends as it takes a rather long time to complete the shave.
Its design looks very sleek and of high quality. That might be a very good reason to buy the device as it looks very good in the bathroom and takes up little space.
The battery last around 60 minutes, which is a good thing especially when you are travelling because you can complete your shave without the device losing power. Charging is simple and fast through the supplied charging unit.
For those who cannot decide between the Philips RQ1175 Sensotouch 2D and 3D, the cheaper 2D is highly recommended. In the 2D, the three shaving heads are not individually movable like in the 3D. This means that they cannot individually press down on the skin. This is actually not at all necessary as with a stronger press the shaver works just fine.
