Comment:
I have been using an electric razor for 32+ years. I was accostumed to the fact that it would never be as close as a razor. The last one I used was the Norelco Artictec and was getting frustrated. Then I decided to make the switch to the series 7. Unbelievable shave!!! Quick and close. Clean up is easy and I only put in the charger/sanitizer when the battery is low. The cleaning indicator on the base of the shaver is bogus. After one shave it indicates that the shaver is not hygenic. Undoubtly, wanting you to convince you to start the cleaning process so you have to buy more of their solution of which I assume is not cheap. Other than that, for the first time I am very satisfied.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Initially it shaved very close, but as time went on the closeness was less and less. I replaced the head believing that I had worn out the original. The shave has been even worse with the replacement.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have owned this shaver for more than 3 years and replaced the cutter head once (manufacturer's recommendation of 18 months was quite accurate). I have a fairly heavy beard. I learned that I had to pay particular attention to the way the hairs grow on my face and neck (they grow in amazingly different directions on either side) in order to shave against the grain and get the closest shave. (The rotary shavers are much more forgiving in this respect, because they seem to come at your face from several angles.) The effort is well worth it, because the Braun is the only electric I have owned (and I owned a Norelco and a Remington) that comes close to a regular gel and blade shave. I use the cleaning base only every third day or so. The shaver is washable, and I occasionally run it in the sink if I will have enough time for it to air dry before the next use. If you find the noise too much, you might consider one of the less expensive models that don't vibrate, but I think that the vibrating head gives a better shave.
