I have this razor and am very happy with it. I actually got this model last year in November (pre Black Friday). Unfortunately it was cheaper then. Costco had it for $169 (normal) + $50 off, so I got it for $129 after tax. It's still a really good deal when you consider the free extra replacement blades are worth about $60 by themselves.

The exact model # on the back of my unit is S9733. It's actually a retired unit now. They came out with a newer model but I think the only difference is they moved the "comfort" (speed) buttons around.

I have actually ordered another one of these units (unfortunately at the higher price) because I like to cycle my razors so that the blades last longer. I only replace my blades every 2-3 years.

I heard these electric shavers are very hard on skin and sometimes causes allergies. Is this true? Never used one, so interested to learn. TIA.

I have 3 razors (all Norelco). I use one till the battery runs out, then use the next one (and so on). So less use of the blades (and batteries) over the course of a year means they last longer and the expensive blades don't have to be replaced as often. Norelco generally recommends replacing the blades every 12 months which is expensive. So I always get my Norelco razors from Costco because they always include an extra set of blades. So the razor costs less. I get Costco's outstanding return policy. And I get an included set of replacement blades that are worth $30-$60 by themselves.

Cycling the razors doesn't really save me any money since I have to buy the extra ones. It's just the way I do things. My new 9900 Pro arrived today from Costco so now I have 2 of them.

It's possible it could be hard on the skin but probably no worse than a regular razor blade. I've never had a issue with it. Don't know how you could have an allergy to it. It's just plastic and stainless steel. Some people get a rash from shaving but I think that's just sensitive skin.

This razor actually has 3 speeds. I've never seen that before and I've been using electrics for decades. My understanding is that the slower speed is supposed to be gentler on the skin.

If you buy the Costco one, you can try it out for a month or two. If it doesn't work out, you
can just return it (no questions asked).

I agree with you. The blades always seem to be half the price or at least 1/3rd when the razor is on sale. Be careful on buying what appears to be cheap ones on ebay etc because they could be fake. Cheaper still than regular razors. I do ok with electric razors. Some people dont.

My understanding from reviews I've read is that this is basically a Norelco 9700 shaver without the cleaning stand system. The inclusion of the extra set of SH90 shaver heads makes it a great deal for me. Was about to buy a replacement set for a lesser Norelco shaver for $65.

I would've done the same but I had bought a replacement head already just a week or so before this went on sale. Oh well.

The OP should add to the title/post that an extra set of blades is included. That's what makes this deal.
