Summary: this is a great razor especially for the cost. it even will trim longer facial hair...first remove the hair gently then go over the area for a close shave. easy to use , easy to clean, charges great. a no hassle razor..always a close shave no iritation at all. the side trimmer is good for sideburns. foil is well made..good for 18 months before replacement. i prefer foil over rotary. ill never wet shave with a regular razor again.
Summary: After finding this shaver's 'cousin' was highly rated by Consumer Reports, and not wanting to buy their "discontinued" recommendation I tracked down the Braun 190. I was almost put off by the negative comments I found for the razor...placement of the on-off button, noise, etc. But I'm glad I bought it anyway. First, my only negative observation: The instructions about the first charging cycle are poor and I didn't give it a full charge and found it wasn't working right.
Summary: The Braun Series 1 Model 190 is an excellent shaver. It is essentially the same shaver as the old Free Control which I reveiwed a few years ago. I recommend the model 190 over the base model (150?) because the 190 fully charges in just 1 hour and is cord/cordless. I have a somewhat thick and coarse beard which requires power and speed to get through it and this one really plows down my whiskers.
Summary: This is my first electric razor and I am very satisfied. Surprisingly close shave, nice look to the razor, not too loud, and is very comfortable shaving and holding in your hand. I havent washed it yet, but it seems real easy. No reason to buy an expensive razor when this one is available. Only bad thing is it doesnt have a self cleaner and you cant use it in the shower. Oh well... its great as it is.
Summary: I've long been a single-head braun shaver fan, but when my old one broke after many years I was stumped for a while on what to replace it with. I used a Remington SF3BPT Micro Screen as backup but it just didn't shave closely. Most of the recent brauns either had narrow or multiple heads or were just too expensive. I picked up this shaver at Target one day and I've loved it since. It has that nice width head, a close shave, and fits my hand nicely.
Summary: I was amazed to find a identical replacement for my trusty old razor which had served me well for many years. And my new one I'm hoping is going to last me for many more... It gives a good close shave, its rechargeable and its light and easy to operate, what more could a man want....
Summary: Bought this as a gift for my husband as his previous shaver was on its last legs. He was very pleased with this one as the foils had been updated from the previous model and gave a better shave
