Excerpt: No matter how many times I went over my face, as it grew out, I would find obvious areas that were missed. The shave isn't terrible close and since I have dark hair, it always looked like I had the start of a 5 o'clock shadow.
Excerpt: The trimmer is something that I found very effective. I liked the fact that it tells you when it needs a cleaning but the rotary system on it could be better. Reshaving the same parts over again seems to be my only complaint. I travel a lot so I liked the travel case to keep it protected.
Excerpt: The manual razors tend not to work with my beard type. I had a really hard time using this without getting hair tugged from my beard. I think overall manual razors don't work with my facial hair type, it has nothing to do with the razor.
Excerpt: I was very excited to try this shaver out, as I have always used a rotary style shaver. It was what my dad used so naturally what I learned on. To get a good test for this shaver I held off shaving for two days, I am an everyday (usually) shaver.
Cleaning feature is excellent, Not so fantasic shave

Excerpt: I did receive this shaver for free and had high hopes since it is a Braun product. I was not excited with the closeness of the shave since it left a fine stubble. It wasn't visually obvious, but upon touch it was definitely there.
Summary: Unfortunately the cleaning system is a bit of a gimmick, heavy on consumables (which are pricey), and dependent on being set up somewhere stable : not good for travel in a backpack for a busy teenager, sorry.
Summary: This product does a great shave although I prefer those round three head shavers. However the cleaning system was what sold it to me. Great cleaning system at first then more and more problems with it not working.
Summary: This was not strictly a purchase, more a replacement. the original product ( purchased ten month's previously) developed a fault, the Beard Trimmer fell off. This aside, the Shaver did what I wanted it to,and the price on Amazon was way cheaper than any other retailer on line.
Excerpt: Good Points: good on a couple of days growth too. smooth face finish - my wife loves it (for me, not her!) Bad Points: bit of a procedure to clean and looks like the replacements might be required on a regular basis - hope they are easy to get! only had it a couple of weeks though.
