Improved Trimmer, Cleaning System Requires Expensive Refills

Summary: Needed a new razor since my old Series 1 trimmer broke. Still hanging on to my compact Series 1 shaver for travel until that foil breaks.
Pros: Price much cheaper here than brick-n-mortar. Long-hair trimmer works much better than my old Series 1. Shaver with integrated trimmer also works better on 3-day (Monday after weekend) growth. Self-cleaning system much more convenient and time-saving than manual cleaning.
Cons: Shave is not as close as the Series 1. Cleaning fluid cartridges are an expensive monthly expense.
Summary: I like this shaver. It gives a closer shave that the Braun that I replaced. I had the original for at least 15 years and never had a problem. This one should last as long. Since I've only had it for a couple of weeks, I'm not familiar with all the aspects and have not used the cleaner solution.
Summary: I had a Braun shaver for about 8 years. It was rechargeable and had the "renew" base with cleaning cartridges. I loved it, but it seemed that they stopped making replacement foils and cutters for that model, so it was time to move on.
Summary: This is a solid razor, it cuts very well and it does not irritate my skin like many electric razors do. The automatic cleaning system is great and works very well. At the sale price, it is hard to beat this razor.
Summary: I have had multiple electric shavers over the years and have only had 2 that have made the cut, this razor is at the top of the list! The only downside to this razor is that it takes up too much space on the counter because of the auto clean system (although it does keep the razor spotless!)
Summary: works great. close shave and the cleaner gives a fresh start every day. not a fan of the BRIGHT blue light that shines through the fluid when it's plugged into the wall (as it's too bright and lights up the entire room)
