Summary: Very dissapointed with this item. Very poor quality power lead connection to both razor and cleaning unit, the lead falls out of the connection with the slightest touch. Do not recommend this item at all.
Summary: Purchased this last week and used it for the first time today, it didn't shave very well. You have to go over the same area multiple times and even after a few goes it doesn't get much better. I had to revert back to my old shaver to finish it. I only went for this brand as it's a well known brand and I thought it would be good, especially at the price I paid! Hoping I can return it for a refund as I doesn't do what it's suppose to(SHAVE!).
Summary: Have used this for around nine months after making the change from the three head Phillips types. I like a quick close shave but I never got on with it from the start as it took twice as long to shave and I had to rub until red to try and get a close shave. I gave it time to let my skin adjust to it but it didn't. The most annoying thing with this shaver is if you are a little hot and clammy the head keeps coming off mid shave spilling hair everywhere.
Summary: Want to like this as in many ways it's well designed but the problem, for me, is that it just doesn't give a good shave. It gets cleaned after each use and the foil has now been replaced but still cuts worse that my old £20 shaver from Boots. It does _not_ give me what I consider a close shave and frequently has problems with some areas even after repeated use. At the end of the day all the other nice features can't make up for that. Very disappointing.
Summary: Bought this product to leave wet shaving behind, as I have fairly sensitive skin and shaving in the morning could leave my face blushing a bit for the rest of the morning. But there are too many issues to glance over about this shaver. 1. The shave takes ages and is inconsistent- I have been shaving the way specified in the book, 90 degrees and before a shower etc. but I still don't get a complete cut.
Summary: for an expensive shaver this is very poor indeed. To say i am disappointed in the performance is a serious under statement. I am not dark and do not have a heavy beard or stubble but this shaver is rubbish. under the chin and the neck it is absolutely hopeless. I regret ever buying it.
Summary: As many reviews have noted, there was considerable hype about this electric shaver. I bought mine in March 2011 and it seemed average at best. It struggles to really give you a good shave unless you have a stubble of 2-3 days without shaving. Using this every day will lead to big clumps of hair remaining in addition to a very red and sore face.
Summary: I bought this produced because I thought Braun was a good make of shaver. this was the first electic shaver I have usedand to say I am disappointed would be an under statement. It takes me longer to shave with the Braun then it did with a wet shave and soap. I would say if I could get my money back I would because I have never got a smooth shave yet.
