There seem to be several identical shavers listed here. Mine does not have the low charge warning light.

I bought this and waited before using it. Just another Norelco. So what?

The what is the shave seems particularly close and VERY QUIET. I never thought Norelcos were loud compared to some foil models put out by Braun or Remington. (Moreover in my experience, I get closer shaves with a rotary.)

This has the light sound of a pretend toy shaver while delivering excellent electric shaver performance. Quite remarkable. Even hard-to-mow-down neck stubble vanished quickly.

If the noise of your shaver bothers you, try this Norelco (or models like it.)

This has the standard Norelco "clean under the tap" method, which to me is far prefgerable to some makers' refillable cleaner systems. I have one of those too, but I got tired of buying special razor cleaning cartridges every month or two.

This does not deliver "blade-close" shave, but on many mornings my real blade shaves are too close. Styptic pencil, anyone?

I tried electric shavers when I first started shaveng and they didn't work. They pulled, they hurt,they caused a rash. Now I am 70 and a friend recommended this Norelco. I was pleasantly surprised. It works great with no problems I had years ago. It is very comfortable, fast and smooth. Works great.

I bought this for my husband for Christmas. He's used electric razors his entire shaving life, and has used the Norelco
brand with very satisfactory results. This particular model has been a real "wow" for him! He gets an incredibly close shave
which he feels is even closer than before (even after a blade replacement on an older version) and is a very happy camper.
What a win-win! A man who enjoys shaving, and a wife who loves her freshly shaven man. :-)

I have used numerous electric shavers in my life, but never a rotary. I was never happy with shave quality, but liked the convenience of electrics. I doubted a rotary would get around my goatee beard, or my bone structure. I was willing to try this due to the 45-day guarantee. I am wonderfully surprised. This gives a remarkably close shave, better than any electric I have ever used. Actually, it's as good as a blade, which I never thought possible.

After using a Remington oscillating type shaver for more than 10 years I needed to change. My beard had coarsened so much that some of the thick hairs would no longer go through the Remington's foil. I had to use the sideburn trimmer on my neck and my cheeks. The Remington is NOT a bad shaver. The battery still takes a full charge after all this time, and their customer service has been outstanding. It's just that my beard sort of "outgrew" the Remington's foil and cutters.

After studying the reviews of dozens of shavers I settled on this one, the 8240XL. The reviews suggested that all the manufacturers (including Norelco!) were "cheaping out" and saving every possible nickel during production but the 8240XL seemed to be the best of a bad lot.

The first time I used it was a revelation. I switched it on and thought there was something wrong with it because it was so quiet. Then I dragged it across my face in one of the spots where I'd had to use the Remington's sideburn trimmer, and the hair just... disappeared.

I shave closer now in about a fifth of the time I took before. If this Norelco lasts as long as the Remington, I will be very pleased indeed. Check back with me in ten years or so and I'll let you know. :-)

Update: Battery life is amazing: I got a FULL MONTH daily usage on the first charge!

Update 2: After more than a year, I STILL get 5 weeks usage between charges. It doesn't shave as quickly or as closely as when new, but that's to be expected, I have gone more than twice the recommended time without replacing the cutters and foils, and it still performs quite adequately.

Checked all the reviews before I bought this and was so happy I did, my husband says it is one of the best electric razors he's ever had in his life. Would definitely recommend it to others.

The razor performs as expected. However, much to my dimay I neglected to price shop this item locally. Costco sells the same thing,WITH A SET OF EXTRA HEADS for the same price, and the body of the razor is more attractive.
