Summary: I have used Norelco shavers many, many years so I was surprised by this shaver's performance. I thought I would try it and, if I did not like it, I would return it. But I will keep it. I love how it tells me when it needs to be cleaned so it stays at maximum performance.
Summary: I was using several shavers by Philips, Panasonic and Brown in the past and this is the best so far. It delivers very thorough clean shave while requiring little maintenance. The cleaning/charging station assures that the shaver will be ready to use every morning and the price of the cleaning solution cartridges is comparable to those by Panasonic, it's main competitor.
Summary: This is my third Braun shaver and the best one so far. The shaver head vibrates at a very high frequency, like 10,000 rpm, and provides a very smooth, quick shave while still being fairly quiet as well. I will definitely enjoy using this shaver for years to come.
Summary: I have used the 3 and 5 series in the past with mixed results... I have very sensitive skin on my throat area. My neck would always breakout in razor bumps and irritation using the 3 and 5 series. After reading the reviews i said what the heck and got a great deal on Balck Friday on the 790 razor. It is the best 160 dollars I ever spent!!! No irritation no nicks and no cuts. I use a pre shave balm to stiffen the beard and then shave and I am baby smooth all day!!!
Summary: I have used Braun shavers for years and was reserved about replacing it, thinking so many items decline in value and quality as time goes by, and I might be disappointed. I was however won over by Cyber Monday prices. I could not be more pleased with this new shaver. Closer, smoother, and more comfortable. What more could anyone look for.
