Summary: MY HUSBAND LOVES THIS RAZOR. I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM SHAVE SO MUCH. HE ALSO HAS DRY SKIN AND SOME PRE-CANCEROUS SPOTS ON HIS FACE. THIS SHAVER IS A GOD-SEND. THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT SERVICE TO GET THIS TO US BEFORE CHRISTMAS (ON SUCH SHORT NOTICE).
Summary: I owned (and still own) two Braun electric shavers before I switched to Gillette razors for about 7 years. Recently I decided to switch back to electrics due to problems with ingrown hairs and irritation. I'd been using my Braun 7505 Syncro for a couple months, and after doing some research decided to upgrade to the Series 7. The first shave was phenomenal- close and comfortable, with no irritation at all. Since then, however, it has gone downhill.
Summary: This is the second Braun shaver. The last one ran flawlessly for 7 years and still runs, but the switch is not working 100% of the time. My husband never thought an electric shaver would work for him, but he never uses a blade anymore. No more bleeding! Thank you for German engineering at its best!
Summary: A friend has this and just loves it. He told my husband about this shaver so I ordered it for him but He was disappointed with the shave it gave. He did use it a number of times but didn't feel he got any better shave than what he gets from his old shaver. So I am having to return it.
Summary: I'm a daily shaver. I like closeness of razors but I can't shave daily with causing irritation to my neck... so I alternated between an older Norelco and a razor. The Norelco wouldn't get as close as a razor... and still would cut my neck before it would cut one of those hairs that stubbornly lay flat no matter what you do. I bought this for a Christmas present to myself... and glad I did. I just use this shaver everyday instead of alternate.
Summary: I have been a Braun user for over 40 years and this is the best shave yet. The shave is close and the adjustments make it easier. I only shave where my beard and mustache isn't, so the clean cycle is only necessary every third shave. I actually look forward to shaving now. This shaver is definitely the shaver of your future!
