Summary: This item replaced my old series 3. The new model does not give any improved performance over the old one and as is the case with all battery operated shavers there is no improvement to the operating time.
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: 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.
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: Having read a lot of reviews about this product, I can confirm that in general they are right. Of course it does not shave as well as a razor blade, I've never used an electric shaver that does. It is also not quite as quick as a rotary electric razor, which I have used for the last 20 years. But it is a lot kinder on the skin than either. I won't be going back.
