Great upgrade from my cheap $70~ electric razors,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Braun Series 7-760cc Pulsonic Shaver System, Black and Silver (Health and Beauty)
When I was a poor college student, I could only afford the low-end electric razors. I got what I paid for: missed whiskers, shave was not close so I had to shave more often...
I hesitated to purchase a Braun shaver because they were so expensive. But when I saw the price come down to $150 (almost 40% off the MSRP), I just had to try it. Braun provides a 60-day money back guarentee (it used to be 90-days). I chose the 760cc over the 790cc because the only difference was the "quick clean" feature, which, quite frankly, isn't needed unless multiple people are using one razor. And even then, cleaning only takes about 20 minutes.
Even though I am used to using an electric razor, there was an adjustment period. The Braun gave me the closest shave I've ever had. If you're not used to this, you will be surprised. You will have to use some sort of aftershave because of this; otherwise, your skin will be irritated all day.
The only negative thing about this razor is the proprietary cleaning system. The instructions show you how to clean the razor with just water (for use while travelling). But using the cleaning system at least once a month will make sure that the razor gets the lubrication it needs.
Overall, I am satisfied with this purchase and glad the price came down to make it affordable. Not sure if I'd still buy it now that the price is back to over $200.
