I've had this shaver for god knows how long. Switched to it from a very basic Philips 2-head rotary unit. I'm using ES8093 for dry shave and, perhaps my skin is so tough, I personally don't even need an aftershave - I get little or no skin irritation. I tried to replace ES8093 with Philips arcitec (a top of the range 3-head rotary unit), but got nasty irritation from it, and it did not shave as clean as ES8093 did.
Shaving with ES8093 is fast and clean, and cleaning it is also a piece of cake. The foil and the cutter lived long, but now I'm getting a new foil and a new cutter - and only because I think it is time - the quality of shave have not dropped. getting a new foil and a cutter is a relatively expensive business - 40-50 British pounds - you could buy a new mid-range shaver for that sort of money, and it's about half the price of a brand new top of the range shaver, but I am so happy with my ES8093, that I don't think any new shaver may be better, even though ES8093 is so old now.
