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.
Summary: My face, like many African Americans, has coarse and curly hairs that love to curl under the skin when pulled. The use of standard razor and most rotary razors produces many razor bumps. For the last few years I have used a Braun Series 3, trimming the longer hairs with the trimmer then shaving with the foil. This method was effective except with extensive use the trimmer separated from the razor. This time I purchased the Series 7.
Summary: I replaced my old Braun 8000 series shaver with this one (Series 7-790). My old one was still doing the job just fine but the finish was peeling off and the cleaning system became a little flakey. I wish I had upgraded my shaver earlier - the Series 7 provides a closer shave and I've cut down my shaving time from 7-8 minutes down to 4-5 minutes. It's also easier to hold and the edging function works much better than my old one. I'm really pleased with this purchase.
Summary: Pros: * Best price which made me cancel my order with a competitor. * Fast free shipping. * Nice little rebate which had me go into a store. This was important because I have only been in one other Walmart about 6 years ago and it was an awful experience. Now, the store I went into was super clean and easy to figure out. Kudos. * Super happy person who received the razor. Cons: * Took me a bit to figure out how to put together the cleaner for the razor.
Summary: This is a fantastic product - a huge step up from my old Braun, and way better than Norelco or Remington shavers which feel like they are pulling the hairs out of my face instead of cutting them. I always thought the cleaning centers were not necessary, but I really love having a totally clean and fresh scented shaver every morning, so I would highly recommend it.
Summary: Its a great shave with no skin irritation. Blazed through a 3 day beard without a tug! Love the LCD read out and holds a charge for a very long time. Cleaning & charging system works just like it did with syncro 7680 and even the leftover cleaning refill work in the new one. You can't beat the price $145.97 and a $20 eGiftcard during black Friday sale.
