This razor is ok as a dry shaver. It cuts very close to the skin. Not very effective because I had to repeat a few times. I was mislead by the wrong specifications of shopyourway.com, kmart.com that states that this razor is a wet/dry electric shaver. I contacted Philips directly, and they told me that this is a dry shaver. I was very disappointed. Pros: It has a built-in trimmer, you can take off the shaver-head to clean inside, you can shave while plugged-in or charged. Cons: You have to pass over an area a few times to get all the hair cut, not a wet-shaver, makes your skin a little irritated after shaving.
