Excerpt: I bought another Braun shaver called the Braun Series 7-790cc Pulsonic Shaver for $260 a few months ago when a previous Braun was missing when I was in a friend’s house. I bought it after getting sold into the hype, which seemed too good to be true. But before I tell you what I like about this product, let me say that I have used other non- Braun shavers before, which irritated my skin and caused a rash on my face.
Summary: The biggest issue I have with it is the length of the cord. The base needs to be on a flat surface and you can't use an extension cord with the shaver. Consequently, I could not keep it in our master bathroom which is where I'd prefer to have it. I had to put it in a guest bathroom where the outlet is closer to a flat surface. The shave itself is OK but not as good as the Panasoni i had previously.
Summary: I've been alternating between a Braun Series 3 razor (for comfort) and a quad-blade disposable (for closeness) for years. No more switching! After a couple of days I'm getting a razor close shave from the Braun Series 7 with all the comfort you could hope for. It handles my very thick beard, including lot's of wire bristle gray, and all of the different growth directions just great. It's a bit expensive, but I wish I'd gone ahead and bought it earlier.
