Summary: I bought this razor about 12 years ago after horrible experiences with traditional razors. I have extremely sensitive skin and had razor burn or an itchy rash after EVER shave with a regular razor. This razor worked from the first time! It still holds it's charge, and the blades are still sharp. I need to buy replacemet foil, as the blad finally broke through. But after 12 years, that's not bad. I have to admit that I have not kept good care of it.
Summary: After damaging the switch on my trusty 15+ year-old Remington in an attempt to replace the battery pack, I sought a replacement. I tried a Norelco, but returned it when I found that the only way to shave hair past the stubble stage was to use a flip-out hair trimmer (the hair trimmer was only about 3/4" wide and tended to collapse back into the base). So I then did what I should have done in the first place and ordered another Remington.
Summary: I usually have no problems with this shaver! I have had on for last 10 years, and was time to get a new one! I rcvd this shaver as a gift for Christmans, used it twice. Within 30 days of having the shaver the button that raises and lowers the blades just broke off! I've never experienced this problem before, hope it's just specific to this paticular shaver. I have contacted the company fo a return lable, and havent had a response.
Summary: This is a great razor. It says wet and dry, but for me it works better dry. I shave my legs, underarms and *ahem*....the bikini area, no problem, the razor still is sharp shaves well after 5 years..and counting!! It has two levels to adjust to get how far you want to shave. I purchased mine through Walmart years ago, they don't have it now. Amazon is the place to go!!!
Summary: I've had this exact model since 2005. It works surprisingly well for an electric shaver. Use the adjustable trimmer function first and then use the main shaver for a close shave. (Using them simultaneously doesn't really work.) Overall, the end result is smooth-to-the-touch. The only thing I'm confused about is why this razor costs $49 now. I paid $17 and change for mine in 2005.
Summary: I hated using this thing. HATED! It was painful, and didn't even shave my legs all that well. AWFUL. Don't waste your money. This razor totally turned me off to all electric shavers. Whatever you buy, don't get this!
Summary: I got one of these electric shavers as a gift quite a while ago. At the time, I knew I needed an electric shaver rather than expensive manual razors because I was about to move to Florida and I figured I didn't want to hack up my legs (using manual razors) and I wanted something that was easy to use since I would have to shave daily. When I got this as a gift, I was ecstatic that it could also be used in the shower.
Summary: at first hair grew back fast, I got some irratation but I expected it because I hadnt used an electric razor prior. Says to give 3 weeks for your skin to get used to it and I have and it works great! Great product!!! thanks!
