    I’ve been using a Philips Norelco arcitec 1090 Men’s Shaving System since December, 2007. I’ve enjoyed the 1090 and use it regularly whenever I use an electric shaver rather than a blade. This review will serve as a comparison between the two Norelco shavers.

    Cost: The 1150 is considerably less exepensive without taking any special offers or discounts that may become available into account.

    Bells and Whistles: The 1090 has more bells and whistles. It has an LED display that shows you how much time is left before recharging is necessary. The 1150 does not. The sideburn trimmer is attached to the 1090. With the 1150 you need to change the shaving head to attach the trimmer. The 1090 is a bit easier to clean. You can just flip up the shaving heads and clean it quite easily. With the 1150 you need to remove the cleaning head off the body of the razor in order to clean it out. It isn’t difficult by any means but it does take just a little more time for cleaning.

    The Shave: My experience has been that the 1150 gives me a much cleaner shave and does so in less time and with less effort than the 1090. This may be due to the curved shaving heads that seems to follow the contours with more efficieny. This is particularly true in those areas underneath the chin and jaw-line. I have to do less stretching and craning of the neck to make sure the shave is completed.

    Bottom line: For me the lower cost and the more effective shaving experience outweighs the bells and whistles found on the 1090. For those who like the bells and whistles you may prefer the 1090. So if I’m looking to pick one to take on a trip or for when I need a quick shave I’ll take the 1150.

    Wow. Best electric razor I’ve owned – deals with neck hair well, September 26, 2010

    I’m 45, been shaving for ages now, and I have to say, of all the razors I’ve owned that are of an electric model, this one is the first one to do the complete job. What I mean by that is with electric razors of the past, I’d shave my cheeks and moustache area, and that’d all go well. When it came time to shave the hair on my neck, not so good. I’d have to do that part with a blade. Which kind of defeated the purpose really as I preferred electrics. I would replace the blades, tried a few models over the years, and I’d still have to do cleanup work (if not all the work depending on the specific unit) with a blade.

    This new one though deals with the neck hair, too. I have thick course neck hair, a lot more course than the stuff on my cheeks, and I when I tried my neck hair with this new razor, I wasn’t expecting much. To my surprise, it worked! I was stunned, as I’ve never had an electric that’s done that for me before.

    I give this thing five stars quite easily, and without exaggeration. Feels nice in my hand, too. The heads collapse and move around to contour to my face, which is probably why it works on the neck hair so well. A lot of my previous electrics were “hard heads”, which didn’t contour much – if at all.

    If you have hard to shave neck hair, I suggest trying this razor – it worked for me!

    UPDATE (Jan 20, 2011): I posted this review in September 2010, and after I wrote it, I continued to use the razor after that. I can add that the battery life was most excellent. I did not have to recharge it until early January, so the battery lasted for about 3.5 months. Now I didn’t use it every single day, I’m a “shave every 3 days” kind of guy, but still. That was a long time between charges. I continue to be most impressed with this razor.

    UPDATE (Nov 25, 2011): Still going strong. Replaced the heads a month or two ago, and is still my primary razor. Very happy with this one.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    The Philips Norelco SensoTouch electric shaver is very nicely designed and constructed. It shaves closely, but does have a few annoying design elements.

    The design on the SensoTouch is quite futuristic, with a blue front, curved body, and perched shave head. It fits comfortably in the hand, and has a rubber ridge that runs around the edge for added grip (especially useful when using the shaver wet). The shaver has only one button on it, the power button, which is flush with the front of the shaver face. On the shaver front are also three indicator lights. They display low battery, battery charging, and control lock status. The control lock lets you disable the power button to prevent it from accidentally turning on (when traveling for instance). One annoying aspect of the shaver’s design, however, is that it is close to impossible to lay the shaver down without it turning on its side, and then dumping out some shavings onto the counter. You just have to remember to place the shaver back in the charging base if you have to stop mid-shave.

    Speaking of, the shaver charges somewhat unconventionally. It has a base that you drop it into and it charges through contacts on the side of the shaver. A complete charge takes 1 hour, and lasts 40 minutes. The low battery light alerts you when there are 5 minutes of shave time left. The only disadvantage to this system is that you cannot use the shaver while it is plugged in. If you’re like me and put off charging till the last minute, you may find yourself out of juice when you need to shave in a hurry. A quick charge feature allows you to charge the shaver for 5 minutes, and get 3 minutes of shaving time, but sometimes 5 minutes is more than I have when I’m in a rush. It would be nice if there was a charging port on the shaver itself to use it corded as well.

    Shaving with the SensoTouch is kind of odd at first. The shaver puts very little pressure on your face. At first I didn’t think I was pushing hard enough to get a close shave, but it was shaving just as close as any other electric shaver I’ve ever used. Indeed, you can push as hard as you like, but it never feels like you’re pushing down hard. I’ve learned to use the SensoTouch with a light touch, and the payoff is a close shave with less irritation. The shaver head pivots smoothly in all directions, and the three shaving heads pivot individually as well. The shaver screens have holes for shorts hairs and slots for longer hairs. Indeed, I had no problem getting a close shave on the contours of my face and around my goatee. The shaver can be used wet or dry or with shaving cream. I only ever used it dry, as I had no need to attempt a closer shave, and liked the convenience of a dry shave. Lastly, you can pull off the shaver head and pop on a trimmer head. The downside to this setup is that the trimmer is a separate piece, whereas most shavers have the trimmer integrated into the shaver itself.

    Cleaning the shaver could not be easier, after each use you simply pull off the top plate of the shaver head and run water through it and the shaver head. When a more intense cleaning is needed you can disassemble the entire shaver assembly and clean out each rotary blade individually with the included brush (I actually throw the blades and heads into the dishwasher on a sanitize cycle to get them extra clean).

    All in all… a smarty styled shaver that gives a close and comfortable shave.

    09/27/2010 Update: I’ve noticed that even if I don’t shave, and let me beard grow for a few days, the shaver still shaves very closely and does not snag on the longer hairs. My old shavers used to snag when I didn’t shave every few days.
