Summary: Only had this shaver about a month or so. It does give a close shave, but it's brand new with new blades & should give a good close shave, I have an older Braun model 7505 that needed new foil & blades so I though I would try the new model series 7-790cc.
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.
Summary: My 7090 replace my 8585 I still use my 8585 the cleaner is broken. 7090 is a very close 2nd. But because of the price it's 1st place due to it's Outstanding value and proven quality thanks to the 8585.
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.
Summary: I have used Norelco shavers many, many years so I was surprised by this shaver's performance. I thought I would try it and, if I did not like it, I would return it. But I will keep it. I love how it tells me when it needs to be cleaned so it stays at maximum performance.
