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. Changed cartridge but still had issues - however fingers crossed it has worked every time I have used it in the past two months. Maybe it was just a temporary issue.
It's good, but hasn't convinced me to stop wet shaving.

Summary: I purchased this in November 2011 during one of the Black Friday events. I've been a wet shave and Wilkinsons Sword & Gillette shaver for many a year, but it was leaving my neck red-raw. I purchased this because it came with the charging and cleaning unit in one. It is also of a good weight, with clear indicators to show the battery usage and whether it deems that it needs cleaning.
Summary: Shaves ok. Trimmer to slow. Lack of head cover is not made clear by bad presenation on web. I am stuck with having to use shaver case for protection. When weight and space for air travel is getting more limited.
Summary: I recently purchased this shaver from Boots online. The shaver is great but the box was in poor condition.The box has had sticky tape on it and then removed taking much of the cover with it and looks very shabby.This is down to Boots not Braun. The shaver was bought as a gift for my husband.
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. Amazon replaced the item after a number of Telephone calls to operators who did not sound like they knew what I wanted.
Summary: OK, doesn't,t really shave that close and can,'t see any value in the holder as yet, just sits there upside down and can't be left on charge at the same time. Price wise it was worth it, but would never have paid full price.
