Summary: I have the ES8243 for over a year now, and I regret ever buying it. It is a terrible shaver, What a mistake!!! Sure it works either wet or dry, but does not shave in either condition: It does not pick up stubble unless it is perfectly perpendicular to the skin. And the Trimmer? it folds back to the closed position if you apply any side pressure whatsoever, so it is useless.
Excerpt: So far, so good. I bought this to replace my Braun and this one shaves much, much closer. I liked that the Braun had a holder to recharge and clean itself but at times, I felt a little unsure of how clean it was getting. During the clean cycle, it seemed to twist the razor so I think this one will work well.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Reliable
