Comment:
For me, after shaving I can still feel stubble. Then I take a shower, including a shampoo, face wash, and rinse. The stubble magically disappears! I think that when you shave, especially if you move the shaver rapidly over your face, some of the whiskers are only half cut. That is the stubble you can feel before showering and washing your hair and face. After scrubbing your face with shampoo, then rinsing, the stubble is swept away leaving a perfectly smooth face. One disadvantage of this shaver is that the hygiene indicators on the shaver and console don't match, unless you first lift the shaver out if its cradle and press the detente with the tip of a pen. If you don't want to be bothered, just go by the shaver indicator, which is always correct.

Comment:
I use it for daily close shaving except when traveling, in which case I take a Panasonic. The Braun may not be allowed for air travel because of the alcohol cleaning cartridges, but if it is, it will take up lots of space in your checked baggage, and potentially could spill fluid onto your clothing or other suitcase contents. I used to manually clean the shaver, dry it, then run it for a few seconds in the cleaning solution. This allowed a longer time between cartridge changes, although some of the fluid undoubtably evaporated while the shaver was not in place. Now I just clean the shaver as recommended - it's much easier. Know that over the life of the Braun you will spend more on cleaning cartridges than you paid for the shaver.

Comment:
I had expanding areas of thin hair (ok maybe some would say bald spots) on my head. I saw the reviews about this razor and hoped that it would also be great on my head. It has been great on my head, I used several types of shaving cream and bladed razors and NEVER got as close as the Series 7. I have the 790 which is very similar to the 760, same foil blade system. <br />Here is the true test, I work as a Surgical First Assistant and get to wear the fashionable blue hats! When I have used the bladed razors, even after just leaving the barber the hats stick to the remaining stuble like velcro. When I shave with the Braun Series 7, the blue paper hats don't stick! <br />My hope is the blades last, I have been using it for a month now and still just as smooth as the first shave. Even if I need to buy new blades it worth it!
