This Norelco provides an extremely comfortable shave, but for me, not a close shave. This makes it less desirable to me. It might make a fine choice for someone with a lighter beard, or someone with less shaving experience, or someone who has a disability that makes it difficult to shave. Men in these categories would find the Norelco's comfortable shave to be a winning factor.
I'm also not pleased with the cleaning requirements. My old Remington linear-style had a foil head that pops off, making the foil easy to clean under water, exposing the cutting head, which is also easy to rinse and brush under water. This Norelco shaving head, on the other hand, contains both the foil and the cutting blades. You must physically pop out the cutting blades to be able to access the back side of the foil for cleaning. Further, the instructions tell you to clean it in alcohol, then use a lubricating oil on the mechanism afterwards. This is considerably more work.
As I wasn't experiencing a satisfactory shave with this razor, I tried for the first time a pre-electric shave conditioner. This conditioner has definitely helped, and allowed me to give the razor a two-star rating instead of only one-star. If you aren't pleased with the quality of your electric shave, I highly recommend you try a pre-shave conditioner.
