Summary: Had this shaver for about 2 weeks and it is the best shave I have had in years. A bit louder than I expected but not all that bad. I do not use the cleaner system as it is to much trouble and the cleaning fluid is to expensive. Other wise the shaver is the best shaver around that I know of.
Summary: I purchased this shaver for my husband for Christmas. He loves it's ease of use and how it minimizes his wrist action when using it. I'm impressed with it's self cleaning ability, assuring a clean razor with every use. Over time he has experienced a lot less razor bumps than before. It's indicator lights lets us know when it needs cleaning and when the battery is low. The battery lasts more than a week so far.
Summary: I have not had it all that long but I do like the feel of it as I use it. You can feel the power in your hand as you shave with it. Very close shaves and thats what I'm wanting. This far I'm very happy with it and would buy again.
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.
Summary: I'm a daily shaver. I like closeness of razors but I can't shave daily with causing irritation to my neck... so I alternated between an older Norelco and a razor. The Norelco wouldn't get as close as a razor... and still would cut my neck before it would cut one of those hairs that stubbornly lay flat no matter what you do. I bought this for a Christmas present to myself... and glad I did. I just use this shaver everyday instead of alternate.
