This model lacks the pulsating action of the Pulsonic, but don't let that stop you from buying it. I've used the Pulsonic and, on my face, the Series 5 does as good of a job in most spots, and a wee bit better on the neck. I also find the "push up" format for the sideburn trimmer to be better/easier to use than the "flip out" format on the Pulsonic.
The best part of any Braun shaver is the cleaning system. In a word, it's perfect - no other cleaning system comes close. Works well, and leaves the shaver spotless and lemony-fresh. The down side, of course, is that you need to purchase refill cartridges. If you clean every day, expect about 4 weeks per cartridge. I get mine to last about 4-5 months by cleaning once a week using the cleaning base, and cleaning the rest of the time with water. You have to remove the cartridge and re-cap it so you don't lose solution via evaporation.
Neat trick for quick cleaning - just click the head release button but don't remove the head. Then turn on the razor and let the stubble fall out. Gets about 75% of the whiskers out in about 2 seconds. Safe for the razor - the tip is in the user's manual.
The Series 5 comes in two models (760 and 790) - the only difference is the number of lights to show you the battery charge, so look for whichever is on sale.Read more ›
The shave is close and comfortable, effortless it seems. Better than the 7526.
The noise is slightly louder than the 7526 model, still not a problem though.
The sideburn trimmer is seperate from the foil and easy to deploy and use.
The cleaning device is perfect. Greatly improved from the 7000 series and gone is the sliding post which was prone to breaking.
I do wish the electrical cord had not changed so that I might be able to use my previous models as a backup.
It doesn't come with a plastic protective cover on the foil, as my previous model had, which is sad as I like to shave on the go and the cap is necessary to prevent damage to the foil. I comes with a nice travel case, though not as quick or convenient as cap. I still use the previous models plastic cap as it does fit this 570cc.
One other complaint, minor, when disengaging the foil to clear the cuttings I notice this 570cc unit does not vibrate as much as my previous 7526 model and it is therefore a bit harder to dislodge the cuttings after a shave.
I have just purchased this product and it is great. I have been using it for about two weeks now, but I will update this review as time goes on. I was initially going to purchase the previous version, but I held off and I am happy I did. Before using the shaver, I went out and bought Lectric Shave by Williams as many other users have mentioned.
The shaver comes with everything you need to get started. It took about 2 hours to completely charge. I have looked into an additional plastic cap for the head while in the travel case, which would run about $10, but it is not necessary. Just make sure to be careful of the head, and you are fine. I have resolved to clean the shaver 2-3 times a week, so save a bit on the cleaning solution. Using a bit of water and the provided brush cleans it up just fine while away from the base.
The shaver feels solid in your hand and results in a good to great shave. I usually keep the swivel head locked or nearly locked, but I have been experimenting with it. I have very coarse hair, thus a razor would be best. However, I was not blessed with clear skin and thus shaving traditionally has been very painful. I have experienced minimal shaver burn as a result of the Lectric pre-Shave. It is a bit strong smelling, but it adds a bit of glide for the shaver when shaving. To my current experience, it does not clog pores, as it gets a bit greasy but then dries out as it is alcohol based. After I shave, I usually then wash my face with a cleanser and apply cream.
The side burn trimmer is also great. It is at a 90 degree angle, but I have to say it is very useful and has great results.
So far, I am very pleased with my purchase.Read more ›
