The dry shave is too rough on the skin so I would definitely recommend the wet shave over it. The wet shave works very well, leaves the face smooth and doesn't irritate the skin at all. The included trimmer works well too. Make sure to look at a guide on how to use a rotary shaver if you've never used one before as the technique is quite different from a regular shaver.
The charging station that is included has given me some mixed feelings. On the one hand, it's super easy to store your shaver in it and it charges it at the same time. It also has a cleaning mode, which saves you time cleaning your shaver and should keep it in good shape for much longer. But at the same time, this charging station is quite large, and counterspace in my bathroom is very limited. As well, the fluid that you need for the cleaning cycle does not last very long, and isn't cheap to replace. It's a bit of a money racket, as I'm sure at this price point Phillips could have created a refillable area at a cheaper price, or had it clean with just water. You do have the choice to wash it by hand and avoid the 'cartridges' all together, but then your fancy 'smartclean' system becomes a brickish charging station with no alternate use for the large size of it.
One option is to make your own cleaning fluid (google to get good instructions and make sure you use the correct ingredients) if you don't mind voiding your warranty.
Overall, this shaver seems to work very well in specific situations. For a daily wet shave, it works really well, but I would advise not letting the hair growth get too long. If the hair does get too long use a manual razor to get back down to optimum length. When it comes to shaving rotary shavers aren't the best at getting a longer hair growth, but when you shave daily that doesn't become an issue.
Make sure to pat your razor dry with a cloth (gently) after every use to extend blade life.
I have to say I was quite impressed when I received the shaver with all the accessories that come with this shaver. You get the power cord, a beard trimmer, a cleaning station and the cleaning liquid. As an added bonus Philips throws in a carry case.
The shaver is very light and compact, and is very comfortable to hold. There is a battery display on the handle, which has 3 bars so you know when it is due to be charged so you don't get a full shave and end up with a dead shaver...
What I find great is that you can use this shaver both dry or wet, so if you prefer to use shaving cream you can, just rinse it often like you would a regular blade. I haven't tried the wet way yet, I find that regular dry use is fine for me.
As for it's performance, I have to say that I am quite impressed. It shaves very close, and as I mentioned, I have a thick beard so it really performs well. I tried it with a 3 day old beard and was expecting a painful experience but not at all, it just cut through and very quickly I might add, and my face was not sensitive afterwards either. I am impressed indeed.
And when the shaver needs to be clean, it has it's own cleaning station. I do find the station to be a bit bulky for the amount of counter space I have in my bathroom but it is very convenient so I guess I can live with it. It does do a great job at cleaning all the hairs out of the shaver and keep it lubricated and in tip top shape, and that I like.
Philips impresses me with this 8000 series electric razor. It's changed my opinion of electric shavers, and I will be using it often now that I know how well it works. I recommend this shaver.
