Summary: Does not shave close at all, takes too much time in the mornings to shave with this razor. It is quite but does not work well. The cost is very high for a razor the is of poor quality like this one and I will have to send it back for a refund I am sorry to say. I like a close shave and was hoping this would be the razor for me, but you just have to keep going over and over your face to get the results you need.
Summary: The shaver works well, however the charging/washing base does not work at all. The metal contacts on the base are trapped behind the plastic and will not allow the shaver to make contact to charge or clean. This is very disappointing for a product this expensive. I will be returning this product.
Summary: We bought this shaver for our 23 year old son for Christmas. He just loves it! This is what he said, "I rate it 9.7 out of 10! It gives a great, close shave. The feature I like the most is that it is self-cleaning.
Summary: I bought the model 8595 Braun and found the noise runs great cpmpetition with my hay bailer. Fully 12 minutes to get a so, so shave. Replacement blades made no improvement leading me to believe I needed to upgrade to Braun's new Pulsonic, which took place. Two weeks trying to make my decision worthy of the expensel was fruitless and the noise continued to wake my wife needlessly.
