Summary: At first I was skeptical to but a 135.00 razor, but it's a high quality razor from Braun. My prior razor was a Braun and I used it almost everyday until it finally fell apart. This razor provides a clean, comfortable close shave. As an afro American, we tend to have hairs that curl and hide at the neck line. This razor was able to find those and cut them with no issues. Worth the money to invest in a great product....and this is it.
Summary: This razor does an ok job shaving your head but not your face! I have a Norelco that does a much better job on my face and when I am done shaving my head I use the Norelco on my head to get a much closer and smother finish on my head as well. I like the Braun cleaning system and the fact that it is one flat surface and not 3 rotating heads but bottom line it can't get close to giving me a smother shave than my 3 head Norelco.
Summary: I have just used Norelco shavers. The last one I had was the over priced Norelco Sensor Touch 3D. Like the ones I had years ago, I cut myself with it almost every time I shaved with it. Had 3 months to return it. Took it back to WalMart and got the BrAun Series 5 shaver. I got the 550CC-4. It cost less than the Norelco and for me it is a fantastic shaver.
Summary: A great razor. Closeness of shave is really very good, better then I had expected. Cleaner seems to work just fine and saves time as you don't have to spend time cleaning the unit. But if you don't want to clean the razor the unit will just charge it. Refills can be a little expensive, but you can get them on ebay at a good price. Overall, a fine razor and Braun suggests that you change cutter head after 18 months. Pretty good time frame in my opinion. Would buy again.
Summary: I called my local Walmart and they did not have my item. They told me to try online. I found the items, Braun Shaver and Braun cleaning kit. I ordered them and they were delivered 2 days earlier then stated. It was very consumer friendly and easy. I would not hesitate to go online if my local store did not have what I wamted.
Summary: I purchased this about two months ago and it is great. I have never used a braun before and the newer disposable razors caused my fact to break out something bad. This is an awesome product and well worth the money.
