Norelco is using the printer model

byinsituform Jul 6, 2010
1 Helpfuls 2 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Good shave for the first month
Cons Bad shave after the first month
Recommended it? No

I've owned many a Norelco razor, and generally have had good luck with them.  I thought my experience with the Arcitec would be similar.  This thing goes through replacement blades quicker than my much used printer goes through ink refills.  After less than a month of using a brand...

A bit pricey, but what a great shave!

byDouglasfede Apr 8, 2010
Helpful? 1 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Easy to Use, Effective, Great Design
Cons A little expensive
Recommended it? Yes

This is probably one of the best electric shavers I've ever used.  Once you get past the price tag, you'll realize what you're paying for.  Very comfortable and gives a close, sharp shave.  Everything you'd want out of your razor.

Pros Quality Construction
Cons Misses diffficult neck hairs, Difficult to Use, Irritates Skin
Recommended it? No

I bought this for my husband when it first came out and we have always been happy with Phillips Norelco shavers. My husband has a lot of trouble with this shaver and barely uses it. It doesn't get his neck clean properly and is harsh on his skin. He prefers to use his old one. And I would recommend... Read full review »

The perfect gift idea

Pros Easy to Use, Effective
Recommended it? Yes

I bought the Norelco Arcitec for my nephew a few years ago, and he says it is the best electric shaver he has ever used. He's never had a closer shave, and maintenance / cleaning is simple and hassle-free. Good battery life as well. Read full review »

I purchased a Norelco 1050x a few days ago on sale at Target for $139.99. Last two razors were Norelco eletrics, last one being a Spectra. I have a very very rough beard and have used it 3 times ... and I cannot for the life of me figure out why all the negative reviews. I will say the... Read full review »

Way too pricey

byspenta Nov 15, 2009
1 Helpfuls 2 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Recommended it? No

I bought this shaver as a gift and the recipient hasn't been too happy with this product. Especially given its price tag, this shaver leaves a lot to be desired. It's way too heavy and shave is not very smooth. Other minus point is the speed, you have to shave over and over again at the same spot... Read full review »

Arcitec 1050 Razor...not too good

Pros Close shave, nice travel case, lightweight.
Cons High price/value ratio, non-adjustable shave height, narrow trimmer, "feels"...
Recommended it? No

In my opinion, Philips/Norelco really blew it with the advent of their new arcitec 1050 shaver.  My wife purchased this for me as a replacement for my lost Smart Touch 9160 XL. 

The high points include a really close shave, large shaving surface, lightweight design and nice travel case. ... Read full review »

I have tried many electric shavers and felt that this product should be fairly nice for all the hype it claims it can do.

Pros Good shave.
Cons Awkward design. Head falls off.
Recommended it? No

I have used a Phillips/Norelco shaver for over 20 years and love the shave. I had to try their new shaver. But this package is not good. The shave is good but design is awkward to use. The straight body actually hurts my hand to use. The head keeps falling off so i must be careful about how I hold... Read full review »

Pros Cleaning System Highly Improved

The only thing that Norelco improved with it's new Arcitec
Shaver, is its Cleaning System.Finally Norelco has caught up with it's competitors with the Arctitec Cleaning System
which unlike its previous models,lets you know when the cleaning is done,as well it drys the shaver.

Pros rotating head
Cons just slightly better than average shave, so over priced & bulky cleaner, AVOID

I got this thing in November and it gave me the same shave, (or slightly better if i spent 10 plus minutes working on it) as I had been getting for years with other shavers. I got on their site and asked for help. I was told to just give it 3 weeks for my hair and skin to adjust to it. I was not to... Read full review »
