Summary: I usually shave my beard by regular razor every other day but Braun 790 makes it twice a week. I had Philips with three rotator heads was good for once a week but it causes allergy(redness) to my neck skin. Braun 790 cc needs go back and forth on the under-chin hair. It needs cleaning by special cleaning system and solution. It is faster than Philips but slower than regular razor. It is used on dry skin. I have it for two weeks and this is my fourth shaving with it.
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. When you replace that, can be bought at walmart, it's like a brand new razor all over again.
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.
