Summary: "My Remington was older than our first child, so I needed to buy a new one. Rotary razors scratch my face too much, so I wanted a foil top model. I think this shaver is new to the Braun line-up. It feels comfortable in my grip as it's handle is more ergonomic than the previous model I owned. It shaves really close with almost no irritation.
Summary: Tried this for a while, but went back to wet shaving. An electric razor will never get as close and is more time consuming especially if you don't shave every day. I didn't think this was worth the money.
Summary: I have held on to doing a review on this item till I had a good chance to test it. It is comfortable to use. and gives a good shave. The most impressive part is the clean and charge station. As I had been traveling a lot I did not want to open the cleaning solution so it was some 2 months before I actually got round to opening the solution and using the system properly. It is wonderful it makes the inside of the shaver head look like new.
Summary: If like me you have thick hair stay away from this lame shaver,it just does not give you a close shave.I tried to get refund but with electrical items once you have opened the box it is NON-REFUNDABLE.
Summary: After 5 months of owning this. I thought i'd write a review. This is my first ever electric razor and I don't have any experience with rotary razors. I did some research and the Braun series 5 was what I wanted. A close shaver that doesn't scrape your face off like a Gillette Fusion would do. This shaver will not get as close as the Gillette fusion but it's pretty close. I have sensitive skin and with the Gillette Fusion I used to get cuts and nicks all the time.
Summary: The shaver is very well presented and includes a padded travel case. It is fully portable when charged and can be cleaned under running water in addition to using the docking station. The key feature of the shaving system (yes, it is apparently a system) would of course be the self cleaning program. This works very well, and can save a bit of time in the morning.
Summary: I have been using a five blade razor and recently suffered irritation. I thought I would try the Braun 590 cc and have found it a pleasure to use, not quite as close as the blade but good enough, and no irritation. A first class product. I am totally converted.
