Philips Norelco 7810XL Shaver Review


The Philips Norelco 7810XL shaver is a moderately priced unit from the leading rotary head manufacturer.

It is aimed at men who want a value-for-money unit that offers a high-end shave and are not too bothered about having all the trimmings that come along with some of the more expensive units these days.

Appearance and Accessories

I think we can say that the 7810XL has the typical Philips Norelco body shape – that’s a curved ergonomic handle for easy grip, supporting the rotary heads.

It is silver and black in color, with a battery indicator display on the front.

The unit comes supplied with a charger, protective cap and cleaning brush.

Main Features

  • Precision Cutting System features slots to cut longer hairs and holes to shave the shortest stubble, meaning nothing is missed.
  • Individually floating heads align the blades next to your skin for closeness.
  • Super Lift and Cut Technology removes hair the first time it is passed over. One blade lifts the hair while the other cuts it off, leaving you with the closest possible shave.
  • Reflex Action System automatically adjusts the head to every curve of the user’s face. This makes it comfortable and easy to use.
  • Comfort shaving heads provide smooth skin contact to minimize irritation and soreness.
  • Features a pop-up sideburns and mustache trimmer.
  • Rechargeable battery is fully charged in one hour and provides up to 17 days of cordless shaving, according to Philips Norelco.
  • A quick charge option is available for one shave, when you are in a rush.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The unit is fully washable under running water, making cleaning away for stubble from blades and cleaning the inside of the unit easy.  The cleaning brush provided will help with this.


The Philips Norelco 7810XL shaver can be found in most stores at around $70-80, but buying it from Amazon or other online retailer will save you money on this price.


The Philips Norelco 7810XL shaver comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee and a two-year warranty.

User Reviews

This unit gets consistently positive comments from users who seem to feel that it gives great value for money. It’s not one of the most expensive shavers around, but everything about it is geared towards doing its main jobs of shaving close, shaving comfortably and shaving for a good length of time – and it appears to achieve that as well as many more expensive units.

It also receives positive reviews for its low noise output and durability.

The main complaint is that, in order to bring costs down, they’ve taken away a few nice features like the travel case (but that can always be purchased separately) and charging stand.
