Summary: I have been using this Remington shaver for ten months as a replacement for a Norelco rotary razor. I should have returned it within the 30-day trial period, but stubbornly held on to it in hopes my face would adjust to the new razor and I would get a close shave. Problems: 1) The rotary heads unlock and pop off the razor while shaving. 2) The edge trimmer dulled quickly and now no longer cuts. 3) It has never given me a close shave.
Summary: I purchased this shaver about a year ago and it was a disaster from the very beginning. The parts don't stay together! The rotator blades are extremely unstable and very difficult to reassemble. Today I had a new low and decided to warn others about this product. I can't believe it got any good review at all. WARNING: DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
Summary: I've owned this product for about 7 months. It worked well for a while, but then I removed blades to clean the thing well. Now that I detached the blade covers they WILL NOT stay on the razor. Every time I shave I have at least one blade pop out, then I have to stop.. put back together and proceed. I got so angry last night I smashed the thing because it would not work for more than 30 seconds without the blades popping off.
Summary: This shaver is a poor example of what a shaver should be. I shaved with it the first time and the blade and the housing fell out on the floor and keeps doing it because they made the shaver that you insert the blade from the front not like the older model with the lock ring inside. I have to always put the blade back in.
Summary: My Norelco was getting a bit worn and I wanted a new rotary shaver. I bought a Remington with a similar action. First impression was that it gave me a very good shave. After a few uses, like any shaver, it needed a clean out. Problems only come to light after a little use, of course. Taking it apart was just a bit fiddly. But putting the thing together again is a whole different story. It has been designed so it all comes to bits, with no simple reassembly protocol.
Summary: Pros: ----- Battery lasts a long time Easy to use and clean Feels good in my hands Price is fair Cons: ----- Simply not as close of a shave compared to my 7 year old Norelco After years of using a top of the line Norelco, I decided to switch to a different brand. The top of the line Norelco was not perfect (battery) and way over priced, but gave me a closer shave. The Remington is nice and easy to use and clean. The battery lasts longer than on the Norelco.
Summary: I own an expensive (~$200) PHILIPS shaver that I bought 15 years ago and that stopped holding a charge just a few months later after I purchased it, but I kept using it anyway by charging it every time I needed to shave. It takes about 30 minutes to shave with it though. The PHILIPS have refused to send me replacement parts, so 15 years years later, hoping the technology and quality has improved I purchased REMINGTON R7130 360 degree Pivot & Flex shaver for ~$70 which...
Summary: I purchased this shaver because it had a time remaining display, but as soon as I took it out of the box, it fell apart in my hands. I read several reviews before buying this shaver that the "heads pop off" and sure enough, they do. There isn't a whole lot holding them in, and this appears to be a case of just poor design. After spending 10 minutes attempting to put my brand new razor back together, I asked myself why am I doing this, and I bought a Norelco.
Summary: This item is identical to Amazon ASIN B001BJLGZC, except this price is $20 more expensive. 55 reviews at other listing as of September 26, 2009. I would appreciate Amazon providing cross references to identical items listed with slightly different titles. The one star is for charging 25% more than the usual price.
Summary: I echo the problems of a few others. The damned heads keep falling off. It got to the point where I was happy if one stayed in place for use; of course, it took three times as long to shave. A waste of money (including the extra set of blades I bought) since it's heading for the trash soon.
