5.0 out of 5 stars remarkable, December 21, 2010
This review is from: Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System, Silver (Health and Beauty)
Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System, SilverI have been using Norelco razors since high school.I am now 65. Every 2or3 years for all of my adult life I have purchased the latest top of the line Norelco on the market. Way back many years I did buy a couple of other brands to check them out, but they always seemed like they were yanking the hairs out one by one , so I always stuck to Norelco. The last couple of Norelcos that I have had didn't seem to be better than the last. After doing lots of online research, and reading Conumer Reports I decided to try the 790-cc Braun. I was very skeptacle, but what the hey, you've got to try something different once in a while. I have been astounded at the difference. When people wrote that they got a shave as close as a blade, I fgured they were just rationalizing their purchaces. Well, they weren't. The shave is remarkable. It is quick,confortable and amazingly close. There are some negatives. The cleaning-charging system seems a little funky and the travel case is very flimsy compared with the Norelco. Other than those couple of minor details I really believe this is going to one of my best puchases ever. One other thing. This is the first product evaluation I have ever done, so i hope this isn't too long and has been helpful.

Thanks for the review. This sealed the deal for me; I'm going with the Braun.

(Regarding review-writing: whenever writing on the internet, it's best to start a new paragraph every 2-4 sentences. Not sure why, but that's how it's done.)

I have purchased top Norelco razors for DH for many years. Was really disappointed with the last 2. This review would seal the deal for me as well. Actually been thinking he needs a new one.

I am in the market to purchase a shaver for my husband this Christmas. Tell me Vaughn, do you have to replace the razor heads on this model?

You nailed it for me. I am 63 and like you I have always used Norelco and seems like they are not as good as the older ones. I am glad I read your review. Thanks
