Bottom line, I like the Philips Norelco Multigroom Pro for its size, form factor, and maneuverability. And while it gives my face a tolerable shave, it certainly could be closer/cleaner. However, it does an excellent job shaving my scalp and trimming up my sideburns. As an all-in-one, shower-proof, hair removal system it does a good job, especially if you need to consolidate your gear to minimize volume/items. I really liked the way it cut my scalp hair and will most likely continue to use it for that but go back to my straight blade to shave my face. The Philips Norelco Multigroom Pro is several times more ($70) than its heavier, corded hair trimmer counterparts but is much more portable and versatile – all coming down to your needs/use.
Philips Norelco is the leader in electric shaving and grooming and it’s easy to see why. I haven’t seen an electric razor with the versatility that this one has that is as easy to use with the click on attachments. This razor would be great under the tree for the man (or woman!) in your life this holiday season! Find out more .
I have to confess that the 45-day money back guarantee has convinced me to try this one out. Philips Norelco 1290X has proved itself to be be an excellent razor. It has a nice feel in the hand, with the rubberized back and balanced weight distribution. The display on the front is very useful, telling you how much shaving time you have left and other functions.
