Summary: After reviewing several negative reviews and also some positive ones on the internet, I decided to take the plunge and get the Braun 790cc Series 7. I have used it for about 3 weeks and it has met all of my expectations. It is much quieter than any of the other Braun shavers I have used for many years. I have tough and dense whiskers, but still get as close a shave as one can expect with an electric razor.
Summary: This is by far the best electric razor I have ever used. I simply wasn't prepared for how good it could be. Now, I can't imagine using my old one (which was a Braun as well and if it wasn't for that it broke, I would still be very happy with it.).
Summary: This is the first time I have purchased a top of the line shaver. I have sensitive skin and can not use a blade without giving myself as a blood offering. this shaver gives a smooth close shave and is well worth the price, which by the way is a great price at Walmart.
Summary: second braun razor i've owned. got the first one (an 8000 series ) as a christmas gift and loved it. ten years later it's time to get a new one. was willing to settle for the lesser of the 7 series razors, but the deal on the 790 7 series to good to pass up. second braun razor and man!!! if this thing holds up as well as my first i will never shave with anything else.
Summary: Purchased for my husband when he could no longer find the lotion required by his old razor. He has a fairly heavy beard and is very pleased with the performance of the Braun. If he hasn't shaved for several days (over a long week-end or vacation) he still needs to pre-shave with a disposable. He's never found an electric that can do that job. Research showed Walmart had the best price online and the shaver arrived super quickly.
