Summary: I purchased this because BRAUN (PROCTOR & GAMBLE), informed me that they no longer made a foil replacement for my ACTIVATOR 8585, the 50S, instead I would have to buy the 51S, which quite frankly just rips hair out yer face, so I thought I'd buy a new BRAUN as I'd had my ACTIVATOR for 9 years, the...
Summary: Having finally decided to throw away by own trusty Braun 8595 shaver I had had for over 8 years I ordered this one. I couldn't be more happy, the build quality is excellent and the save performance is also great. It takes me a lot less time to shave now and the results are better.
Summary: Other reviewers have explained the way this shaver operates so I won't repeat what they say. What I will do is to highlight some areas and compare how well Braun have developed their products over the years.
Summary: This was a replacement after my original Braun shaver required a new foil cover which on enquiring was told that parts for the particular model were now obsolete, not really surprising as it was over 30 years old, not a bad advert for Braun shavers !!
Summary: When you purchase an expensive item, you expect it to work after removal from the box. Not so here. After removal from it's large box, you have to shop again for an adapter. Bad show Braun - and that's not all. According to it's instructions, your "granted" a 12mnth guarantee.
Summary: I've been using this shaver for a month now and I am very pleased with it. In my opinion and experience electric shavers can't give you quite as close a shave as a good razor (a Mach 3 for example).
Summary: My husband is the one who has tested this shaver, a replacement for his well-used rotary head shaver which was originally a similar price to this Braun shaver when purchased about two years ago. This shaver is a solid build quality and feels well made.
Summary: This shaver comes with a Clean and Renew system that is designed to keep the shaver in good condition for cutting. The Clean and Renew System utilises removable cleaning cartridges which have to be replaced regularly.
Summary: Excellent product, shaves closer, more like a wet shaver than an electric shaver. Comes with its own special cleaning gel...put shaver here when you've finished and it automatically cleans as it's recharging...only snag is you have to buy new cleaning gel now and again.
