  • Cordless But Not Cheap.

    Sep 17, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: This is a razor that has an excellent reputation and will last.
    Cons: The jet cleaning system is just a gimmic.

    Summary: I have been using Norelco products for over thirty years and I am satisfied that this is just about the best razor on the market today. This product can be either found on line or at just about any department store for right around one hundred dollars. ... read more

  • Norelco cheapened this shaver -- don't waste your money

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Decent shave while it works.
    Cons: Don't buy this for longevity; it's a throw-away item.

    Summary: Most reviews are written by folks that just purchased their product not long ago.  They are “initial reactions”.  These reviews don’t give you much data on the longevity of the product.  You should consider how long your ... read more

    Pros: Quiet, Sleek, Easy to Use
    Cons: Dies without warning, expensive

    Summary: I have been using the Philips 8240XL for about 6 months now and I am very pleased with it. It has saved me multiple times right before dates or other formal events. It provides a nice close shave that doesn’t cut your skin. ... read more

  • Good shaver, but not as good as should be

    Sep 9, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good shave, good trimmer, good feel in hand, light weight.
    Cons: Should shave even better, battery dies without warning.

    Summary: ***UPDATE 16 June 2012: Several days ago, this shaver's battery died for good, and rather suddenly at that. Now the battery barely makes it through one shave. This is very disappointing for a shaver that is only one year and 10 months old, and has been ... read more

  • Excellent, less expensive, rotary shaver

    Pros: Quiet, efficient and excellent battery life.

    Can be cleaned with running water.
    Cons: No stand.  Replacement heads are expensive.

    Summary: The 8240 is my latest in a long line of  Norelco purchases.I have been using their rotary shavers for well over 20 years.  Have a8250 at home and just bought this one for use in our seasonal residence.  Less to carry (and remember) ... read more

  • Excellent electric razor!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very smooth, close and quiet shave. Easy to clean. Popout trimmer very useful.
    Cons: I have nothing negative to report re this electric razor.

    Summary: I have used my new Norelco 8240XL for about 3 weeks now, and I find it works very well in all respects. It shaves much closer than my old Norelco Arcitec, with which I was extremely disappointed. The shave is so smooth that the first time I used it, I ... read more

  • Okay, but not as good as older model

    Pros: long battery life
    Cons: comes apart too easy

    Summary: After 10 years, my older norelco's battery finally just got too short lived, so I got this new one.  The body is more plasticy, the head pops off easily when cleaning.  The mechanism that holds the individual blades in is too easy to come ... read more

    Pros: Easy cleaning, lightweight, shaves well, battery lasts reasonably long.
    Cons: Catches longer hair like from sideburns.

    Summary: I purchased this model from Costco online.  It is lightweight, and I liked the charging stand.  The razor is very quiet, compared to my old Norelco HP-1131 corded razor.  It has a comfortable shape, and is very easy to clean under hot ... read more
