Summary: I am really shocked with how well this razor works. I've never before used an electric razor. I have always been old school and used a regular razor and shaving cream for the closest shave. I received this razor as a gift and I was hesitant on even trying it out at first. I was honestly surprised at how well the razor worked. I have very thick, dark hair and I shave on a daily basis, so when I saw how close of a shaver this razor gave I was happy.
Summary: I'd actually been using a Series 7 for two years when I bought this second one…one for home, one for traveling. I like it that much. It's the most comfortable, smoothest shave I've ever had. It's solid and well balanced in my hand, and swivel head accommodates the angles of my face without having to contort my arm to keep it perpendicular to my skin.
Summary: Have had Norelco/Phillips shavers for over 40 years and thought I would try this Braun based on information found in Consumer Reports. In summary, the Braun does NOT provide a better shave than the Norelco/Phillips, costs twice as much, is very noisy, and the cleaning station is a total pain to use. I must frequently refer back to the instructions to understand the indicator light and proper use of the buttons.
Summary: This is the second razor that I bought of this model. The first was 3 or 4 years ago and have not had any major problems with it. I have replaced the head two times and the cleaner base worked great too. The swivel head on it is one of the main things I like about it as I did try another razor that didn't have that and don't like it at all. I travel a lot and this works great even with just doing a couple day trip without doing a cleaning on the machine.
Summary: I have been using Braun electric shavers for 30 years. The 7-790cc is the first one That I feel gives a noticeably better shave then it's predecessors. Ergonomic all design means it is easy to hold.
Summary: I have used a competitors' product (remember the guy who liked the shaver so much he bought the company) for 50 years. I was loyal but increasingly found the shavers cheaply made with a short useful life. The final straw was when the local service facility told me that the shavers were so cheaply made they were not worth repairing - just toss it out and buy a new replacement.
Summary: I had a Panasonic Vortex for about 7years. It worked great for me because of my sensitive skin. I finally decided to get the Braun 790 , and I absolutely love it. Great shaver and easy on my face. Even better than my old shaver. Definitely worth the money and I highly recommend.
Summary: I've had many electric shavers over the years and was never exactly 100 percent happy with any of them. While this shaver seemed a little pricey I accept the fact that sometimes you pay a little more for better quality. Such was the case here. Loved the shaver from the start, shaves close, feels good. Love the different settings and features plus the charging/cleaning station. Sort of can't wait to use it everyday, find it fun to use.
Summary: Very nice shaver. Love the 3 different shaving modes (speeds). Very cllose shave and the head stays nice and cool during longer use. Price at $175 USD vs $350 CAD. Huge difference. Cleaning cycles are quick. Trimmer is a bit awkward vs older Braun synchro models.
