Summary: A nice cut it gives, remember to follow instructions. Stretch skin in neck area which improves close cut. Can't understand why this model is no longer being made nice to hold and use. Good plastic protection cover for head. Case not supplied, but not needed keeps cost down. How reliable it is time will tell I have used Braun for a good few years and been reliable.

Summary: This is a very good razor. Will it give one a shave as close as wet shave with a traditional razor blade? No, but then I doubt whether any electric razor will do so, for the foil will prevent it. That said, this one runs a traditional razor close, and does so quietly, smoothly and very comfortably, much more so than my previous Braun 5-series.
Summary: This has met my expectations and is a good replacement for my previous Braun Shaver that developed a faulty on/off button. The advantage of this model over others in the range is that it can be run direct off the mains (2 pin shaver socket) as well as being a rechargeable cordless shaver. I would recommend this model.
Summary: Have had several foil type shavers [never got on with rotary] the last from Boots, which worked well [still working!] but now replacement heads unavailable. But with the Braun get a smooth shave quicker and it even takes the fine hair on my neck which previous models didn't. Right from first charge battery lasted three weeks.
Summary: I studied reviews carefully before buying this and it was a good choice. It has a good battery and gives a good shave. The head is quite wide but I didn't find it a problem and the cutters are on a spring so they will depress if necessary, helping you reach awkward places. If you pay an extra £20 the 380s has a neat feature where the two of the three cutters can be lowered and held down giving you better manoeuvrability but I don't think it's really be necessary.
Summary: I changed from a blade because I used to cut myself so often it was like giving blood. I thought it would take a week or two to get used to an electric razor, but I got a close shave from day one. The case was a bit on the expensive side, but I've always preferred to protect things from knocks and scrapes. I find a single one hour charge lasts all week and washing the cutting head in hot water is an easy way to keep it clean.
Summary: This shaver gives good clean shave on the face. However it leaves skin very dry and is awkward to shave neck as no matter at what angle I try to do it, it's just does not want to do it on neck like it does on the face, so it takes me some time to shave my neck with it.
