* It seems to be durable. * It shaves closer and faster than the 10 year old Braun it replaces. * Excellent sideburns trimmer.
* It's VERY noisy as some others have commented. * It's relatively slow. Expect to spend 10 minutes or more per shave. * It gives no indication of charge level nor of when it's completely charged. * Despite what it says in the literature it CANNOT be used corded. * The charger only charges the battery. It can't run the shaver by itself. * That means that if you drain the battery half way through a shave, you're SOL!
The bottom line is it's not perfect, but it will give a close comfortable shave eventually. * Update December 2015: The foil split and it's no longer usable. * Update February 2017: Replaced the foil and cutter and it's up and shaving again!
This shaver gives a really good shave, smooth and with low, if none, irritation. Just what I wanted. The details that didn't let me give this amazing shaver 5 stars are two: 1. It is really noisy, it is not annoying, but it is still very noisy for a small shaver like this. And 2. 8 hours of charging for just 20 minutes of use sucks really bad. At least I keep mine always plugged in so it is always ready to give me another smooth shave.
After that it is an amazing shaver. And it is easy to clean and it has a little grease for if you clean it with water so you can keep it working fine.
For not being a blade, it does a pretty good job. I don't intend to use this for everyday shaving. Cleaning up before going out to dinner, or for use as a travel shaver. I charged it up and have been using it daily for 8 days now with no sign of slowing down. I am testing it to see how far it will go to know if I need to pack the charger for trips. It's light, easy to clean, and it'll trim you up. For the price, it may be a 5 star.
I bought one of these for my husband a few years ago and he loved it. Alas, the shaver head broke and needed to be replaced. The surprisingly good news? The cost of this little beauty (new razor) was only a couple of bucks more than the replacement head!
My husband really seems to love this razor, but I'm really only speaking from second-hand experience. (His face does feel nice and smooth after he uses it though.)
I bought this shaver to replace a Braun shaver that I have had for many years. This one is very similar but it got bigger. One of the things I had like about the old one was its compact size. I do not see that making it bigger has improved it any. Other than that, it is a very good shaver. It shaves closely and smoothly. I will be very pleased if it lasts as long as the previous one.
This wasn't bad for the price. I always liked one coil more than having two coils or those round foils. However, it does provide me with a rough shave, and isn't as close as other shavers I have purchased with just one foil. I'll just it probably till the foil breaks.
I was looking for a "single head" razor that would do a good job in areas like the side burns, under the nose and in the cleft in my chin. This razor does a good job and is just what I was looking for.
