Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Philips Norelco 1280X SensoTouch 3D Electric Razor with Jet Clean System. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.40 stars, and the price range is $229.99-$279.95.

The Philips Norelco 1280X SensoTouch Electric Razor features the GyroFlex 3D system for an incredibly close and comfortable shave. GyroFlex 3D system has 3 dynamic parts that move independently – flexing outward, pivoting around and tilting inward to contour adjust to every curve, minimizing pressure and irritation. The UltraTrack shaving heads catch every hair in just a few strokes with 3 specialized shaving tracks – slots for long hairs, channels for longer hairs and holes for the shortest stubble. The patented Super Lift&Cut dual blade system lifts hairs to cut comfortably below skin level for a close and even shave. The AquaTec seal gives the option of either a comfortable dry shave or a refreshing wet shave with shaving cream or gel. With a low-friction SkinGlide shaving surface, the razor slides smoothly along the skin for a close shave without causing any irritation, burns or bumps.

Its Jet Clean System comes with 3 setting Automatic for normal usage, Eco for 40% less energy usage and Intensive for thorough cleaning, lubricating and charging the razor for convenience. The cord-free SensoTouch 3D charges in 1 hour and provides up to 60 minutes (or maximum of 20 days) of shaving time. The convenient trimmer offers skin-friendly precision for the moustache, goatee, or side burns. A LED display indicates how much power remains in the lithium-ion battery and when the blades need a replacement. It has an easy-to-hold handle with an ergonomic grip for optimum control.

However, some reviewers feel sometimes the razor does not provide complete close shave, especially with longer hair or on hard to reach area like neck or under chin. Many users found it difficult to carry while travelling due to its bulky size. Also some face charging issues where the razor does not charge long enough or does not charge at all.

Overall, the Philips Norelco 1280X SensoTouch 3D Electric Razor provides close, comfortable and classic shave with dynamic contour response that is expected from this reputed brand. The SensoTouch is a highly recommended unit with easy to use features, and attractive looks. It is backed with 2 years limited manufacturer warranty and includes a charging stand, luxurious pouch, head protection cap and cleaning brush for maintenance.
