Comments about Philips Norelco 8175XL:

When I was a kid, I'd see the ads at Christmas of Santa Claus sledding down the winter's hills on the Norelco triple head and wonder what it was all about. In manhood I know, I need a shave.

I own several Norelco razors (Christmas presents) and this is one fine example of what a guy might need to have in the bathroom, brief case, or doffice desk.

It is a traditional Norrelco design with the triple "floating heads" which gives a more than adequate and quick shave, although I must admit that generally when using this razor, I will "touch up" with a straight razor on special occasions.

The razor has some nice features including:

a padded carrying case which prevents damage to the heads when knocking around in a gym bag or brief case

a small cleaning brush

a charging stand (mine sits next to my PC in the office),

and an adequately long charging adapter cord.

"Idiot light" help give electric input and charging status.

For us guys with a blad look it also does a great job on the top (scalp) as a finish up to the more heavy duty trimmer -- it gets the rest of the fine hair left dehind.
