Excerpt: Had this shaver about 4 months. Had been doing fine. However, the lock down button at the side quit functioning, no problem I figured. BUT now, when ever the shaver head is moved one way or the other, the foil cutting blades dip in on the left side!
Excerpt: For many years i have used a philips/norelco arcitec. On April 2014 I purchased the 790cc-4. This machine is terrible. The vibrations are so strong that is hard to shave near the ears. Same is the noise of the machine. On June 2015, the optifoil started to crumble.
Excerpt: This is the first electic shaver I have bought in years, the Braun 7 790cc does exactly what it proports to do. It shaves as close and smooth as a wet shave and the cleaning couldn't be easier. If you want a top class Electric shaver this is the one!!
Excerpt: I previously owned an old Braun 1 Series that wasn't very good but was cheap to buy. When it finally fell to pieces I decided to pay more for a new Braun and bought a 790cc-4 which I've had now for 2 weeks.
It certainly cuts my beard closely enough, and is sensitive enough to use every day.
Excerpt: I have sensitive skin so wet shaves leave a rash. With this Braun shaver I get a close shave and no skin irritation. The battery life is good and it recharges quickly. The clean and renew function quick and easy. It's not cheap but I think it's money well spent for a quality shaver.
Excerpt: I bought one of these about 6 years ago - It is used most days, and apart from a head change, still works perfectly. The beard trimmer fell to bits, but what the heck. I've used so many different shavers - including a series 4 Braun - which just won't touch my beard - but this has never failed me.
