Summary: Mine broke after six months of use. Refused to charge and would also turn itself on and off with no one home. I had to ship it to San Fran to a repair warranty company. 34 days later it was returned to me and still does not charge half the time. I contacted p & g (Braun) back.
Summary: I have owned older model electric razors by other makers, however none of them compare to this razor. One swipe and it is smooth skin, not to mention the wow factor of its self cleaning. Lots of shaving creams make me break out. Now no break oouts with this Braun.
Summary: I have used Braun shavers in the past but this new one has risen to a new standard. I am known for growing a dense wiry beard that is tough to cut. The 5 series 550CC does an amazing job that is quick and close.
Summary: A few years ago I bought an inexpensive Braun shaver just to see if it would shave close enough that I would actually use it. It did. I have used it now for years and finally decided to "move up" in the Braun line. This one is so much better that I kick myself for not buying it before now.
Summary: I have searched for an electric shaver that didn't irritate my skin and gives a close shave and this one does it. As a bonus it is fairly inexpensive. It has various settings that meet the requirements of your face and yet gives a close shave.
