Summary: I have enjoyed this razor now for a while. It replaced my old one which I used for about 10 years. This one is a little bit more work to maintain because you have to keep buying Barbisol packs for it every couple months but overall the autocleaning is really nice. My one concern is I think I need to now replace my razor head and it's not clear how to do this so beware of this issue. But overall I'm quite satisfied.
Summary: This shaver replaces my old Braun (7000 series) which was 9 years old. I have to say the 790cc does a great job and is the closest shave ever, for an electric. The 790 is much more ergonomic than my previous model and shaves my neck much better. I usually can use the electric for 5 days before having to shave my neck with a razor, which is an improvement over my previous shaver. Would highly recommend!!
Summary: I originally purchased a Braun series 5 for Christmas. I am a person that has to shave every day, and regular shaving just does not work for me, and at 2 to 4 dollars a blade is just nuts, so I thought I would give the new Braun a try. I had an old series 7 that is about 10 years old that is finally starting to fall apart. Braun razors work so much nicer for my shaving needs...the series 5 razor was struggling to cut my beard, so I took it back and got this beast..
Summary: I am a 67 year old man who has always found electric razors as falling far short of giving you a close shave as that of a blade razor. Every time I read a customer report bragging about a new electric razor , I would go out and buy it and try it, and then have to return it. This time I have finally found the perfect electric razor which does shave as close as a blade. I have been using my razor going on a second week of every day use. I t still gives that perfect shave.
Summary: I bought this razor to replace my 9 year old Braun 8500 series shaver. It was a great razor but was warn out and the cleaning and charging stand wasn't working right. This new razor is so much quieter and smoother than the old one and the Cleaning / Charging stand works great. My razor head also doesn't have the blue strip so it must be the new type, but it seems to work great for me. Every guys facial hair is different; some course and some fine.
