Philips Norelco 7340XL Shaver Review


The Philips Norelco 7340XL shaver is one of the more basic rotary head shaving units from a well-trusted manufacturer. It is rechargeable, easy to use and is aimed at people who want a unit that does the basics reliably and comfortably.

 Appearance and Accessories

Physically this razor is a typical Philips Norelco shape with a curved, ergonomic handle supporting the rotary heads. It is black and green in color – so quite distinctive – with a battery indicator and full charge light on the front.

It comes supplied with a cleaning brush, a protective razor head cap and a power cord.

Main Features

User Reviews

Users of the Philips Norelco 7340XL shaver love the value for money. It’s a third or a quarter of the price of the latest sophisticated shavers with their cleaning and docking stations; this has none of the whistles and bells but does its basic shaving duties very well, by all accounts.

As usual with Philips Norelco models it’s praised for its lack of noise which is useful if you are an early morning shaver, while your partner is still asleep! It also seems to have plenty of battery life for those of you who like to take it away on short breaks.

The main negative comments seem to be related to the fragility of the heads and flip-up top section, which can open a little too easily for some people’s liking.
