Summary: Hard to believe an electric razor can shave as close as a regular razor but this Braun does! Expensive but worth every penny. I've been using Braun razors for 20 years but this new one is awesome!
Summary: I read 100's of reviews about which electric razors work best and after much consideration- I went with the Braun 7 series. I did everything the instructions recommended and to no avail I could not get the shave that I had expected. Skin irritation is inevitable with every razor I have ever tried. The only solution I have found is to trim my beard hair and just always keep some amount of scruff.
Summary: I've used a rotary shaver for 6 yrs before switching to a foil (my first)....and I'm glad I did! This razor is outstanding! It gives me a shave as smooth as a blade, but without the cuts. And the cleaning system leaves that "fresh" scent for each shave. And the best deal was on Walmart on-line. The cleaning solution comes in 2 packs for about $12, but you only change them out about every other month. Very small price to pay for this razor.
Summary: First of all Walmart.com was the best price around for the 790 and had first class service, timely delivery, and good service. That said, after about a month of use, I'm less than impressed with this shaver. I've used Braun in the past, then mainly blades for several years, and this shaver does not shave as clean or close as a blade. The convenience and lack of mess of blades is nice, but the Braun 790 is average in my opinion at best.
Summary: The Braun Series 7 - 790 cc men's electric shaver is outstanding. It takes me less than half the time to shave, compared to my old electric razor. Very smooth outcome. And the self-cleaning process seems to work very well. No more mess and just like new every time you use it.
Summary: My husband needed an electric razor, and based on the reviews, I splurged for the 790cc as a birthday present. Am I ever glad I did! What used to take him easily 20 minutes with a straight razor or 15 with a rotary is done in less than 5. What's more, the shave is almost indistinguishable from using a blade, without the nicks and the mess that shaving cream entails.
Summary: After having a few electric razors over the years, this is by far the best one I've ever had. Gives a pretty close shave (nothing beats a blade) and the auto cleaning cycle saves a little time each morning. Smooth shave with little irritation. On the downside, you are always buying the cleaning refills but it's worth it to me as time is money (a few bucks a month).
