Summary: Braun shavers has always been my go to shaver, the only thing on this shaver that I do not like compared to my last Braun is the trimmer. It does not get as much power to the trimmer as my last Braun.
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: I read 100's of reviews about which electric razors work best and after much consideration- I went with the Braun 7 series. I did everything the instructions recommended and to no avail I could not get the shave that I had expected. Skin irritation is inevitable with every razor I have ever tried.
Summary: First of all Walmart.com was the best price around for the 790 and had first class service, timely delivery, and good service. That said, after about a month of use, I'm less than impressed with this shaver.
Summary: I have used the Braun shaver over a week now and it still doesn't provide the close shave it advertises, at least not in all parts of my face. The instructions say to wait a few days for the razor/face to adjust to each other. I think a week should be enough.
Excerpt: I purchased this razor as a Christmas gift to myself and for the first three or four shaves it was terrific, was a quick and close shave. But now i am probably on my tenth shave using this razor and it pulls my hairs for an extremely unpleasant and painful experience making me dread using it.
Excerpt: I purchased a Braun Series 7 (790cc-4) shaver in December 2012 ($300). One year and 3 months later, the shaver needs to be repaired. The company wants me to mail the shaver in at my own expense and be without a shaver while it's being repaired.

Summary: Although not a particulary hairy guy I can thankfully grow a decent stubble on my face, which if your a teenage boy is something you dream about but as a 35 year old man its something that you live to hate with a passion, its like having to cut the garden every other day!
Summary: Braun Series 7 790cc-3 Electric Rechargeable Foil Shaver with Clean & Renew System Braun have done it again, good shaver but the rest of the product is poor. I purchased one for a present to myself for my birthday. The clean and renew system on my first purchase just did not work.
