Summary: Bought this for my father as his "big" christmas gift this year as this is pricey but walmart was selling it nearly 50% off what amazon wanted! Saved my budget this year tht's for sure lol Anywa y I own the exact same model for almost a year and that replaced an older Braun model so I like Braun as a brand and they have held up well for me. P.S. my dad has been using his shaver for nearly 2 weeks and hasn't complained yet which means he likes it.
Summary: After my top-of-the line rotary shaver failed after years of use, based on ratings reseach I tried the Braun Series 7 shaver. I've found it provides an excellent, close shave -- without the burns or scrapes I encountered with a rotary shaver. It's easy to hold, the controls are simple and the cleaning/charging stand makes mainteance simple. On balance, I'd like it even more if it was a bit quieter.
Summary: I've been shaving with electric shavers for over 25 years and this is by FAR the best shaver I have ever used. I've read a lot of bad reviews on this model and I have no idea why people don't like it. I've owned other Brauns, Norelco and "other" brands as well and this 790 shaves the closest and doesn't pull hairs out like some others. It is great when I let my beard grow a few days and if I shave everyday, I haven't had a bad shave yet and I've had it over a month now.
Summary: First tried the razor with a few days growth and I was very impressed and pleased with the performance. Very close shave that almost rivals a bladed razor and rather quiet compared to other brands I have owned. I will never go back to another razor and highly recommend this model to others.
Summary: This is my third Braun. Love the shave. Love the cleaning system. Just a great razor in my opinion. I've never had any problems with them except for after years and years of use and I'm a twice a day shaver, heavy in the morning and clean up when going out at night.
Summary: I bought this Braun to replace my older Braun. I'm keeping the older one for my travel kit. If you've never used an electric shaver before you'll love it. The nice thing with these razors is that I normally get nearly a year on the razor head. When you replace that, can be bought at walmart, it's like a brand new razor all over again.
Summary: This shaver is well built and has many features. I do not rate it highly because I could not get nearly as close a shave as I can with a much less expensive Reminton shaver. Cleaning/charging base takes up too much counter space.
