Unreliable. Poor sealing against moisture. Difficult to clean under the cutters.
At first I was very pleased with the shaver. However, I began to notice a mildew smell after a few months, and realised a build up of soap deposit was causing the smell. It is impossible to rinse this away, as it becomes trapped right inside the inaccessible area under the cutters. A complete stripdown revealed poor sealing of the motor cavity. I returned it under warranty, and they carried out £90 of repairs for free. I keep as a spare now for dry shaves only.
