Comment:
I have tried to cut beard and it doesn't cut. I have to use the trimmer to cut beard and then try and follow up with the razor to complete the job. I think the problem is the screen. the holes are too small and too close together. Could be that this razor is just not suited to my beard which is somewhat soft Things that are great.. Battery holds a charge. Things that are not. Doesn't work Bottom Line: I wouldn't even recommend to an enemy

Four months after purchase, replaced foil/cutter due to holes in foil that cut into skin. Replacement lasted less than two months, with same negative result. Worst shaver purchase in over 40 years of electric shaver use.

Comment:
Shaver arrived with one cutter loose in head; difficult to attache cutter and no instructions provided in manual. Cutter foil frame only fits into shaver one way, but it is very difficult to tell which way is correct (no marking or other indication). When in use the shaver sounds like a gas powered lawn mower. After one month of use the shaver turned on by itself in the middle of the night, and could not be shut off. I had to wait for the battery to completely run down. <br /><br />I can't imagine how Consumer Reports could have recommended this shaver. I give it a 'worst buy' rating. I am returning it under warranty, but I don't want the same model as a replacement; I'd rather go back to shaving with blades.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
