Summary: I bought one of these a few years ago because I wanted a no-nonsense shaver and thought the features on the higher versions were just up-selling tosh. Sadly, this shaver barely does the basics: more than a day's stubble and it really struggles. It also struggles if it isn't plugged in and my wife has described it as a 'hedge-trimmer'and she got so impatient with how long it takes me to get out of the bathroom that she bought me a Phillips....
Summary: Charger did not work at all,luckily I already had one from a previous shaver [same model] so I binned it.It appeared to look like a cheap imitation anyway,come to think of it the whole package does.
Summary: Excellent shaver at a reasonable price. I had one of these for many years and it served me very well. When it finally reached the end of its life I foolishly decided to go up-market and buy a shaver from another manufacturer at about twice the price. After 18 months I have binned that one and purchased another Braun ...... superb.
Excerpt: Bought it on special offer so good value product which replaced my now obsolete Braun shaver. However this one is not as good as I have to work hard on lone long hairs as the shaving action does not always remove them cleanly.
