Summary: This was exactly what I was looking for! Really love it and will definitely recommended. At the long term it will cover for the price if you compared with the money that you spend by using shaving blades.
Summary: This shaver got best rating by Hammacher Schlemmer and always made the top 3 lists everywhere on line so I bought it and Braun's best Series 7 to compare. I've owned both makes in the past and found service and longevity to be excellent on both--the Panasonic was the winner of the two-closest shave and no weaknesses
Summary: I wasn't sure I could trust the reviews, however there were so many with five stars that I decided to purchase the razor and pay the high price. I can say that so far, I am glad I did. All of the positives mentioned by others are true and it is giving me the closest shave that I have ever had with an electric razor. Also like the fact that it can be charged with just the cord and not a stand that is always taking up room in the bathroom.
Summary: I was a little hesitant to switch from norelco , but this one had far and away better reviews and recommendations. I always take reviews with a grain of salt, and I expected a quality razor for this price regardless. What made me buy this one was when I looked into the replacement foil and blades. norelco blades are supposed to be replaced every 6 months (at least for my current model). The blades aren't cheap at around $35.
