Excerpt: I REPLACED A REMINGTON I HAD USED FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS
THIS NEW ONE IS USELESS AS IT SIMPLY DOESNT CUT HAIR. IM SORRY I THREW MY OLD ONE OUT AS IT WAS STILL WORKING AND WAS WAY BETTER THAN THIS NEW MODEL.
Summary: One good thing about this shaver is its modest dimensions. We seem to be in an era of gigantic shaving products. There is something a bit dodgy about wanting a shaver that is twice the size it needs to be! Don't buy this shaver if you want a fast shave.
Summary: Having used a Remington for many years, I opted for the F4800 when it was on special offer. Boy! What a disappointment. It barely does the job it is intended to do and after recharging it only lasts two or three shaves before it suddenly switches off.
Does not give a good shave, misses longer hairs, trimmer awkward to use, expensive to maintain.

Summary: This razor does not give as good a shave as older model Remington's I have owned, so bad that I have just ordered my third set of cutters/foils, and have decided my next razor will be a Braun.
