On the other hand, the Norelco S9721/87 razor does have a few cons that might make you think twice about purchasing it.

(click here to see the current price on Amazon) A bucket lot more than its contemporaries. You have to pay a lot more extra and for this reason many would be trimming this off their lists.

You can only carry the shaver in the carrying case, and not the other accessories which come with it, such as the power cord or the cleaning cradle.

The Verdict

It is undoubtedly good shaver.

If you really want to buy this, but are stepping back due to the mammoth price tag, it is better if you go for the Philips Norelco S9311/84 (9300 Series). Get all the important features except one – the 9300 model does not feature the Smart Clean Pro system.
