Summary: Brilliant - I'm on my second. The first one lasted about 9 years before the foil went rusty, but even then it still worked! I replaced it for hygiene reasons. It's ace. I stick it in my hand luggage so I don't look like a tramp when getting off a night flight. I used it for 8 years in the Army so I didn't get chinstrap rash when on ops, which is the main reason the shaver went rusty - being kept in damp conditions.

Summary: After using razor blades for years ,my skin was becoming very sensitive to the sharp blades . So, I decided to try the Braun after reading good reviews. I find you need to use on a daily basis in order to keep the whiskers short. Any of my facial hair longer than say 4mm have to be removed with a razor. I have not tried the side trimmer at this stage.
Summary: I've always previously had the Philips style shavers. Thought I'd give this style a go for a change. Bad move. It's fine on flat skin, like the side of your face but on your neck it hopeless. Spent many minuets but just ended up with a sore neck and a bad shave. Returned it. Thanks Amazon for great customer service.
Summary: This is a well-designed product and has good features like the sideburn trimmer and the blade shield, however, because I am of Pakistani origin with very thick dark hair it didn't give me a good shave. Even after going over the same part of my face several times it didn't manage to shift them. Perhaps for people from a different background would have better luck.
Surprisingly fast to get shave done, a bit bumpy and get the odd knick. Closest shave compared to Philips and fastest, + Trimmer

Summary: Getting into Electric after wet shaving for 30 years. Tried the Philips Travel, and the Braun mobileshave - thought I'd do half my chin with one, half with the other. Wife likes the results from the Braun more. It actually shaves closer, and you complete the shave in a quarter of the time. The Philips however is completely different, really comfy to push around your face, feels really smooth going over your skin.
Summary: Alright to keep fairly groomed on a short trip. Not great though. I normally wetshave but taking blades, foam etc. on foreign trips has become difficult in the 21st century so I bought this. It will do a pretty good job of giving you a trim, and it's certainly light, compact, and easy to use, but it misses a lot of patches. Alright on a holiday where you don't mind a slightly patchy beard.
Summary: Great battery razor. I've had one for years and thought I would get a spare for the holiday bag. It shaves very close and it's comfortable to hold. Battreies last a long time but use Duracell or any other good battery or you will be dissapointed. Very quick delivery and great packaging from Amazon.
