I've had the LF51 for about a week now. This is a switch from rotary to regular in electric shavers for me. I have to say that so far, I can find very little to complain about.
The shaver does an excellent job on my beard. I've even let the stubble grow out for two days, and this thing tackled it like it was nothing. The "lock" and "soft" don't seem to have a lot of effect, I'm still experimenting with that, but it doesn't detract from the shaver.
The pop-up trimmer works extremely well, and after I get the sideburns where I want them, the shaver part takes care of the stubble that's left with no problems.
Cleaning couldn't be easier. I followed the directions, used hand soap, and the faster cleaning speed and that did the trick. The only thing the shaver is missing is a cleaning brush, but since I have a couple lying around, that's about it for the cons as far as I'm concerned.
Replacement foils and blades seem straightforward, and relatively reasonably priced, as opposed to the Norelco which this replaced.
The travel case seems sturdy enough. The travel lock is extremely simple to use, you just rotate a sort of ring that surrounds the on-off button.
The battery indicator seems to work well, although I have trouble seeing the color blue due to an astigmatism, but I can manage and so can you.
Don't hesitate, don't dither. You've done enough research. Order this shaver and be done with it, you'll be pleased.
