Summary: I bought this having spent far more money on the more expensive Braun Shavers over the years thinking it would be not as good as them ....ergo pay less, receive less ? As a "going away" shaver though, I thought I would give it a go. However, it works as well as my last model which now retails at over twice the price of this one. This one is also quieter!! Don't hesitate. This is amazing value for money!
Summary: I needed a new shaver and this was at the right price. This is actually a wet & dry shaver, so you can use it in the shower, Tesco state dry only. The cleaning dock actually is quite good you get one tub of the cleaning solution, but if your a tight you can simply just rinse under the tap, the solution does give it a really good clean though & lubricates everything(oh err mrs!) it does actually work well and not just a gimmick.
Summary: Bought this shaver as a Christmas present for my other half, his old one was getting very worn. He has commented on how he now has a much better and quicker shave & his shadow takes longer to appear!.
Summary: I have always thought an electric shaver was the way to go for my husbands shaved head as well as his face. I bought him one for Xmas and I am delighted with it. It shaves closer than a wet shave. I was a bit surprised at how long the cleaning and drying took (4 hours) in the machine provided, but it does do a very good job of it.
Summary: This shaver has so far performed well. However, it has a special cleaning kit which I consider is unnecessary, and is a bulky piece of plastic, and ultimately not good for the environment (You can see it in the product picture). The shaver can be cleaned with a brush or by rinsing under the tap. Furthermore, the cleaning kit has a consumable item which needs replacing at regular intervals, involving the user in additional cost.
Summary: Gives a smooth, comfortable shave, also runs quietly. Very disappointing no shield for the head when stored, surely a very cheap item to provide. Also disappointing no indication on shaver of shaving time left on battery.
