The Philips HQ7140 is a mid-cost rechargeable electric shaver. The Precision Cutting system of the HQ7140 shaver cuts close to your skin without being uncomfortable, so that you can easily cut short hairs. The Super Lift and Cut technology of the HQ7140 uses a dual blade system to get a close shave: the first blade lifts the hair and the second blade cuts it. The Reflex Action system conforms to every curve in your shaving area, ensuring a smooth shave. The spring-released, pop-up trimmer of the HQ7140 allows you to groom your sideburns and moustache. This shaver differs from the lower cost HQ7120 model in that it has individually floating heads, which allow you to get exceptional closeness in your shave by aligning the blades to your skin. The Philips HQ7140 electric shaver is washable.

Norelco used to be a quality product with heads lasting quite some time. The last head I purchased two week ago pulls and cuts almost as poorly as the one I had been using a year. I think they should be ashamed of such shoddy products.
