Summary: Sorry Braun but this does not shave cloely. The shaver has a nice feel to the grip, it sounds powerful and the charge lasts a long time but I've been using a cheap Philips for most of the two years that I've had the Braun. No I don't recommend it
Summary: Firstly I should highlight that I have always struggled with electric shavers which I find difficult to use, primarily because of the resulting irritation. Even so I thought it worth a try given the advances that seem to have been made with these.
Summary: I purchased this rasor because it's approximately 1/2 the price of the Brawn 5 series shaver. I like Braun electric shavers, too many cuts with a wet shaver to go back to them, and I never seemed to get on with Philips and Remmingtons.
Summary: The delivery times were highly disappointing. I had an international business trip on the following Saturday morning before I have purchased this item, and because of that I decided to pay extra for faster delivery (1 to 2 days).
Summary: The shaver is light to hold and easy to use. The rubberised non-slip sides are especially good if using in the shower. I have not generally been a huge fan of electric shavers. A dry shave with this is just the same as others I have experienced - it is difficult to get a close shave on your neck and...
Summary: Incredibly average shaver. I wouldn't say it lives up to its value, but at the end of the day it manages to plow through a couple days worth of stubble. Stick the with Philishave Cool Skin range for a much cleaner cut, these foil razors seem to have given me terrible rashes.
Summary: I have used Brauns for 30 yesrs to trim round my smallish beard. Now, at the wife's insistence I have shaved off all of it, and needed a slightly more robust version. The good points are that the charging is quick and lasts well, the head is easily cleaned, and the shaver is VERY comfortable to use.
Summary: I do not rate this shaver highly. It seems slow, and shaving takes a long time. I had previously bought a Braun PocketGo P-60 shaver (battery operated) which was a fraction of the price, and works far better.
Decent - but it's only good for daily shavers, really, despite the blurb about `after the weekend'!

Summary: Probably the reason that I'm not as impressed with this shaver as I might be is that I tend to only shave every few days, allowing some stubble to develop. I must admit that when I read in the blurb about this razor that it could manage different lengths of hair ("after the weekend"), I was quite...
