I ordered this Series 7 Braun product as a replacement for traditional shaving blades after I was started on a blood thinner. This is the first electric shaver that I have used. It does an excellent job in wet or dry mode. I prefer to use it with a wet beard, after applying shaving soap (which has glycerine) . Cleaning is easy with the cleaning station. I told my barber about its cleaning system, and he asked me to bring it along next visit.
I'm extremely happy w/ my decision to make this purchase. Sure there are plenty of cheaper options, however cheap isn't what I wanted. I wanted quality and excellence which upon daily use I feel confident this Braun shaver has and will continue to deliver.
Having used 3 different types of electric shavers in my lifetime, I was reluctant to spend the money on this shaver. The wife told me to quit CHEAPING out... you get what you pay for! Well , the wife was RIGHT again! This is the best shaving Electric Razor I have ever owned. The shave is close and smooth! I would buy it again!
Wow! I bought this shaver after years of using the older Braun. I've been using electric shavers for 60 years. I was pleased with the older Brauns but I wanted to have a new shaver and bought this model. I can say this is the most fantastic electric shaver I have ever used. The shaver gives me the closest shave by an electric shaver I have ever had! It does so without wear and tear on my facial and neckline skin. It is fast and very efficient. I also love the solid feel of the unit. The model knows when I should use the automatic cleaning and battery charging systems and does so automatically. I'm in electric-shaving heaven!
The shaver is top notch, just don't expect to get an extended warranty from the factory as started on the web page. Even though it tells you how to do it, it is not offered. The customer service rep says tough.
