Summary: I have had this shaver for 8 months now and it has turned out to be the worst shaver I have owned. It takes a minimum of ten minutes to shave properly, and the requires a follow up with an old fashioned razor to actually get the smooth finish. Who has that kind of time. It's easier to just use the old time razor. Battery life is excellent, but it needs to be with the long shave times.
Summary: The only reason I bought this product was because I thought it came with a charging stand like in the picture. I went out of my way to search and buy this only because it had a charging stand...so I thought. There is no stand with this product. So it will have to lay on the counter and look messy just like my last one. Disappointing. Change the picture!
Summary: According to my husband, there's no downside to this shaver. It's fast, lightweight and performs much better than his old one. The technology with these razors has really improved over the past five years.
Summary: Got this rs-130 for Christmas. Was using a braun 5 708 (older) The new Remington just feels under powered and very frail built. I guess I got used to the solid coil cutter and the three floating blades on the reminton are too wierd for me. I am thinking of going out and buying a 700 series braun.
Summary: This is a pile of junk. After week and a half I threw it in the trash. Pros: - lightweight - charges quickly - series of LEDs on the front clearly shows the remaining battery capacity -- this is nicer than some shavers which just have a "low battery" light Cons: - battery lasts for maybe 5 shaves - plug on the end of the charging cord is huge - rotary blades keep popping off while shaving -- this is ridiculous
Summary: First, I just returned a Norelco 1050X ($190) after seeing almost no difference in shave between it and the Remington R-5130. I've never had the quality problems some mention below with the 5130. Does the 1050X seem better built? Only slightly, not an extra $135 though (I'm not take by the woven carbon fiber look). I like the way the Remington charges, unlike the Norelco where I need to get the stand out, plug it in then set the shaver in the stand.
Summary: I bought my son a Remington R3130 Rotary shaver for Xmas. I did not research the product but relied on my personal past experience with an ancient Remington foil shaver (remember the ad..."I liked it so much I bought the company"). I had since switched back to a blade and have been a blade user until this Xmas. I figured...$35 for a college kid's shaver could not be a bad investment as the competitive Norelco was twice the price.
