Summary: dont look any further! if you are looking for a new shaver or just have a different one that you are unhappy with, then get this braun 790 shaver! spend the money for the best electric shaver!
Summary: I bought one of these shavers and liked it so much I purchased another for my son. The shave it gives is fantastic - comparable to a blade but without all the nicks. Unlike all other electrics I've owned, the Braun does not irritate the skin, even when you press. The cleanup is really a dream with nothing to do except pop it into its stand and press a button.
Summary: 18 months ago, my Braun shaver's battery gave up after about 15 years (yes I got that shaver so long and loved it) which I bought in Germany. Looking around for a new shaver I was shocked about the prices of new shavers and didn't understand that cleaning kit that came with it. So I bought a Braun 3-series. For about 18 months I hated to shave, and was thinking what a terrible products are these guys making these days. Finally I got enough of it and did some research.
Summary: I am very pleased with this shaver. I replaced an older Braun that I was pleased with for over 7 years. I have never had such a close shave with an electric shaver. I would highly recommend this shaver to a friend. Well worth the higher price.
Summary: For all readers - most of reviews are posted once something goes wrong. You rarely hear about success stories - if all is good people don't bother. I am usually one of the last group, but this time I will do an exception: Battery last longer then I expected. Someone mentioned that it is noisy - I will say it depends what are you comparing it to, adjust speed of shaver, or volume level of your hearing aid. Liquid cleaning - I am not doing it.
Summary: Have had three Remington foil shavers and longevity was not up to par. The foil would not stay connected to shaver on each one. The Braun is, so far, head and shoulders above Remington, with quality of product and closeness of shave. Although pricey, I'm not disappointed in purchasing the automatic clean/dry option. It cleans excellent. I find that I can use the cleaning/recharge once a week. All in all, it's a great product.
Summary: Upgraded to this after my last shaver called it quits 3 years later (older Braun model) this thing cleans faster, quieter, and shaves amazingly close - not quite as close as a blade, but better than any other electric I've used, by a long shot. Worth every single penny.
Summary: I have been using my Braun, Shaver, Series 7-790CC for a week or so now. I haven't used an electric shaver for 35 yeats. I did a lot of research before making my purchase and with my decesion to purchase the Braun, Shaver, Series 7-790CC System, I could not have been happier. this shave does a great just, very close shave and it self cleaning works great. I have a heavy beard, and must shave daily, and now that I am retired the Braun series 7 is great.
Summary: I only use an electric shaver and I'm very picky when it comes to something I use almost daily. I keep trying to find a comparable electric shaver at half the cost, but I keep returning the cheap quality for a braun. With this shaver you get the complete package, quality you can feel and a nice close shave. You have to remember this is a value item meaning you get what you pay for. Do I like the price, no... but I like the value.
