(Pocket-lint) - Black Friday wouldn't be quite the same without premium personal care electronics seeing their inordinate price tags slashed to semi-reasonable levels - and Philips' top electric shaver has joined the pile.

While deals in this area do have a tendency to be slightly loathsome, this is an excellent saving - the Philips Series 9000 is available from Amazon for just £139.99, down from its previous asking price of - wait for it - £449.

That gives you a total saving of £310, and we're not really sure you're going to do much better over the sales period. 

Philips Series 9000 - save £310 now £139.99

So, what makes this particular model so excessively expensive, only to find itself in the mid-level price bracket for Black Friday?

Well, while you might be expecting a razer this expensive to let you just simply flick through different facial hair looks, make you breakfast in bed and maybe do your tax returns, it is, simply, just a masterful shaver. 

Depending on how seriously you take your face, though, it could be the one for you. The Series 9000 gives you eight-directional ContourDetect, letting the heads follow contours and cut closer, with three settings available for you to cycle through. Included is also a beard trimming attachment and travel pouch.
