Summary: I've had one of these for 5 years and the battery has slowly been giving up the ghost over the last year. I now get one or two shaves per charge. But it's given me good durable service over the years. It takes about 5 minutes to get a reasonably close shave. It's not the most comfortable or effective shaver on the market but I've got used to it. I've just ordered the R1750 as a replacement.
Summary: I have used all makes of electric razors, I mostly buy the top of the range, theory being it should give a better shave although in reality the next down in the series will have one less bell or whistle and will be tens of pounds cheaper. over the years Remington shavers give me a better result than anything else.
Summary: Almost everything about this shaver is good. It gives a really close shave and a full hour on recharge. The trimmer is effective and I like the shape which gives a well-contoured grip. The price is also attractive for a premium razor. The problem is that the heads are *really* difficult to reinsert, either because thay have popped out spontaneously or because you have removed them for cleaning.
Summary: Bought this R7130 for youngest son who couldn't get on with the new Braun foil style shaver he had been given. He is fairly new to the shaving scene and couldn't get a good shave with the Braun. Difficult for me to know what sort of shaver to buy but read reviews and decided to give this a try. He is very pleased with it and managed a much better shave first time round. Some say it takes a few weeks for the skin to get used to it.
Pros: This is a potentially good product but has a significant design fault. It cuts well and closely and has a good battery charge life when new. Of course, haveing just purchased this item I cannot say about battery life! The titanium coated cutters should outlast those of Philips products.
Cons: The heads readily flick off when shaving. Having used Philips equivalents for many years, this cannot happen with their razors as the the foils are retained positively behind the head moulding.
