Very pleasantly surprised with the closeness of the shave.
Dean
After about five minutes of going over my face, I notice small areas around my cheekbone, my chin and around my adams apple that just don't feel or look neatly shaved.

Ive heard great things about Braun Razors, after buying one I was a little disappointed with the shave it gives!

The Series 5 is a re-design of Braun's popular 360 Complete. It uses the same cutter, so the shave is the same as the 360. The differences are in the overall shape - Braun has done a great job with the re-design. The shaver is easier to grip and has the same basic form factor as the top of the line Braun Series 7 (Pulsonic). Unlike the 360 Compete, the Series 5 is washable under the tap. It's NOT submersible or a wet shaver, but you can safely use water to clean it.

This model lacks the pulsating action of the Pulsonic, but don't let that stop you from buying it. I've used the Pulsonic and, on my face, the Series 5 does as good of a job in most spots, and a wee bit better on the neck. I also find the "push up" format for the sideburn trimmer to be better/easier to use than the "flip out" format on the Pulsonic.

The best part of any Braun shaver is the cleaning system. In a word, it's perfect - no other cleaning system comes close. Works well, and leaves the shaver spotless and lemony-fresh. The down side, of course, is that you need to purchase refill cartridges. If you clean every day, expect about 4 weeks per cartridge. I get mine to last about 4-5 months by cleaning once a week using the cleaning base, and cleaning the rest of the time with water. You have to remove the cartridge and re-cap it so you don't lose solution via evaporation.

Neat trick for quick cleaning - just click the head release button but don't remove the head. Then turn on the razor and let the stubble fall out. Gets about 75% of the whiskers out in about 2 seconds. Safe for the razor - the tip is in the user's manual.

The Series 5 comes in two models (760 and 790) - the only difference is the number of lights to show you the battery charge, so look for whichever is on sale.

I'm coming to the 570cc from the Braun 7000 series which was effective but I always wished the grip was better. The 570cc appeared to solve that problem with the ruberized grip. Upon using it, however, I find that the benefits of the 570cc textured grip are countered by the angled head. I expect that in time I'll adjust but after the linear 7526 model I'm finding it difficult to get comfortable using this 570cc.
The shave is close and comfortable, effortless it seems. Better than the 7526.
The noise is slightly louder than the 7526 model, still not a problem though.
The sideburn trimmer is seperate from the foil and easy to deploy and use.
The cleaning device is perfect. Greatly improved from the 7000 series and gone is the sliding post which was prone to breaking.
I do wish the electrical cord had not changed so that I might be able to use my previous models as a backup.
It doesn't come with a plastic protective cover on the foil, as my previous model had, which is sad as I like to shave on the go and the cap is necessary to prevent damage to the foil. I comes with a nice travel case, though not as quick or convenient as cap. I still use the previous models plastic cap as it does fit this 570cc.
One other complaint, minor, when disengaging the foil to clear the cuttings I notice this 570cc unit does not vibrate as much as my previous 7526 model and it is therefore a bit harder to dislodge the cuttings after a shave.

I have used a Braun razor for as long as I can remember. Bought the 5 series as a replacement for my 7680, which needed to say goodbye as the side trimmer broke on it. My main reason for buying the 5 series over all others was for the side trimmer. This is the most vital part of a razor for me. The trimmer is a good improvement over the previous razors, as it slides up differently, though feels more plasticy. Most reviews do not talk about the trimmers, but I feel this is the best side trimmer I have used on a razor. It is a 90 degree angle, unlike others that use a 45 degree angle. This Braun performs similar to every other Braun I have had. The new shape takes some getting use to, but once that happens, you are good to go. It has a nice grip to it and you are less likely to drop it by mistake (you know those kind of mornings). The performance is a little lack luster compared to my previous razor and I seem to have to go over spots several times to get the close shave Braun and others claim. There is a lack of power to the razor and the reason for its under performance, however is the quietest Braun that has been in my hands. The battery life is shorter than the 7680, but still lasts several days between charges. One perk to this series is the fact that you can rinse the blades with water, making you save a few more bucks on the cleaning solutions. Overall I am satisfied with this razor, though still consider it lacking a little for the price.

Salvation for My Coarse Hair
I have just purchased this product and it is great. I have been using it for about two weeks now, but I will update this review as time goes on. I was initially going to purchase the previous version, but I held off and I am happy I did. Before using the shaver, I went out and bought Lectric Shave by Williams as many other users have mentioned.

The shaver comes with everything you need to get started. It took about 2 hours to completely charge. I have looked into an additional plastic cap for the head while in the travel case, which would run about $10, but it is not necessary. Just make sure to be careful of the head, and you are fine. I have resolved to clean the shaver 2-3 times a week, so save a bit on the cleaning solution. Using a bit of water and the provided brush cleans it up just fine while away from the base.

The shaver feels solid in your hand and results in a good to great shave. I usually keep the swivel head locked or nearly locked, but I have been experimenting with it. I have very coarse hair, thus a razor would be best. However, I was not blessed with clear skin and thus shaving traditionally has been very painful. I have experienced minimal shaver burn as a result of the Lectric pre-Shave. It is a bit strong smelling, but it adds a bit of glide for the shaver when shaving. To my current experience, it does not clog pores, as it gets a bit greasy but then dries out as it is alcohol based. After I shave, I usually then wash my face with a cleanser and apply cream.

The side burn trimmer is also great. It is at a 90 degree angle, but I have to say it is very useful and has great results.

So far, I am very pleased with my purchase.
