After the initial 2 or 3 charge/discharge cycles to improve battery memory, it provides me with over 20 three minute shaves every morning, which more than lives up to the advertised 60 minute run time. This will vary, depending how you choose to keep this unit charged. I run it down completely and use the cord to finish up if the batteries run out before I finish. Then recharge it for 24 hours for the next cycle. The red low charge light will come on about half way through and the speed will slow down perceptively during the last half of the cycle, but will still shave until batteries are fully discharged. If you use the quick charge feature, at least once a year fully discharge and then recharge 24 hours to prolong battery life. Be sure to brush the cutters and blow off the screens after every shave.(I do not recommend using water to flush out razor cutters.) Do not expect too much from the trimmer except to get the occasional whisker that escapes the daily shave or to trim the sideburns. It is too bulky to be of any further use. After all, this is a razor to shave whiskers with and not for haircuts and trims. This Remington should provide many years of use as did my previous one. Even after the batteries are fully depleted, this razor will still work via the plug-in cord.
***** REVIEW UPDATE, April 16, 2011: I have just placed my order for another Remington MS2-390 Shaver to replace the one purchased in January, 2008. After a little over three years of daily service, the switch has broken and must be held in to keep the razor running.Read more ›
I was so impressed with how close the shave was and given the little use I'd get from the trimmer I considered keeping it but decided to return it. I'm the type that likes to see what I'm buying so instead of dealing with shipping cost issues I decided to head to Target to find this razor. They do not sell this model so I opted to try the Braun 3 series 340 model. This has the Triple Blade (two foils and the cutter in between the foil meant for longer hairs.) Although the build quality seemed better the shave was not even close to as smooth and this went back in a day.
I then stopped in a Fry's store and found the Remington MS2-390 as well as the Panasonic ES8043 model and decided to try the Panasonic. It boasts the sharpest blades and most aggressive cutting angle at 30 degrees along with a super fast 13,000 RPM motor. The Panasonic had the same Triple Blade Shaving system as the Braun 340 and the same type of shave.
Both the Braun and Panasonic caused minor irritation and left significant amounts of stray hairs on my neck that required the use of the trimmer to clean up. After 2 weeks with the Panasonic and the use of my old Norelco rotary (shaver I'm trying to replace) to finish up the neck area, I returned it. I went back to Fry's and bought the Remington MS2-390 again. The pop-up trimmer works this time but don't expect it to fling into action. When hitting the buttons it slowly eases its way into position.
With all this said the important thing is the shave.Read more ›
