Summary: this is one of the greatest shavers out there. other reviewers have had thier tabes broken on thier shavers, you just have to be carefull and the tabs will not break.shaves good, little vibration, and is quiet, and the battery life is good.
Summary: This shaver is a dud. The tabs break that secure the plastic head that holds the foil rendering the shaver useless. Remington sent me a new foil and plastic head with no questions asked. While that was nice, it indicates their ful knowledge they have a defective product in the market. As close as a blade? No way. It takes many passes to get a reasonably close shave. I have resorted to one final pass with a dry blade to finish what I expected this shaver to do.
Summary: I received an MS-900 as a gift. Shortly after, the base started leaking. I called for a replacement, which was sent. In fact, since I asked for a replacement for the $5 bottle of cleaner, they just sent an entire new unit. Within a couple of months of that, the head would no longer stay on. I went back to the first shaver with the new base. Within a couple weeks, the head wouldn't stay on. Called Customer Service and they said they'd send me a different model.
Summary: I haven't had a problem with the plastic piece on the top of the shaver that other reviewers say breaks easily. Maybe I got lucky for a change. I've had this shaver since December of 2006 and it still works great. When I change shavers, I usually get a different brand just for the sake of experimentation. I've had Norelco, Braun and Remington and I think Remington is the best of the bunch, so I think I'll stick with them.
Summary: This product is a very poor design. The plastic feet on the hair catcher break early and often. At first they had great customer service but lately they seem to be ignoring me. If you like stuff that breaks this is for you. They should have a "0" star rating this product doesnt even deserve a "1".
Don't buy it-discontinued because of constand problems

Summary: This is the worst shaver I have ever owned. I loved it when I firlst got it. It provided a good shave. Problem is the top foil piece has tabs that keep breaking. I have owned this shaver for 1.5 years and went through 4 of these. They break when you use the cleaner. Also the base cracked on the bottom so the cleaning fluid all leaks out.
Summary: Many have had problems with the plastic "feet" that hold the shaving head in. I have not. Perhaps I have a redesign. This is the closest shave I have had after many shavers and brands. I do not have or use the cleaning base. A great electric razor.
Summary: After many years of reliable service, the battery on my Braun razor finally could not hold a charge. I received the Remington MS 900 as a gift and it worked for about 2 weeks before the infamous "broken head tabs" problem. Stay away. It cracks me up that people give this product 5 stars with reviews like "works great until it breaks." The point of these reviews is to help others avoid your mistakes.
Summary: Having owned some decent Remington products in the past, I felt comfortable buying this razor. I vaguely remember reading a customer review in which the person stated that the assembly which holds the foil on the razor will break after three months. I purchased it anyways, and sure enough after EXACTLY three months, my razor broke in this exact same manner.
