    1-0 out of 5 stars A fatal design flaw makes this unit quite painful
    I have had a previous model panasonic trimmer, but it gave up the ghost and I had to replace it.So I went with another Panasonic.

    My old Panasonic didn't hurt.Its blades were configured to hit the hairs at a more right angle, cutting cleanly and quickly.Hairs could only enter the cutting zone of the head on the SIDES of the cutter, not on the tip.

    This (reviewed) unit allows hairs to enter the END of the cutter, where they are TWISTED out of your skin.It hurts like crazy - and I'm highly pain tolerant.I think they must have done it to make the tip smaller.But it's a totally ineffective compromise.It made my eyes water and started an insane sneezing fit.Entertaining for my wife, yes, but this thing is no good.Not even worth returning - this is hitting the trash can.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Vital


    As I learned in the course of making my 2 instructional dvds for adults, "New Sex Now" and "Goddess Worship", good personal grooming is vital for creating intimacy and close relationships. I would highly advise that anyone with an ear and/or nose hair "issue" to use one of these groomers or one like it in order to deal with the issue and make it a non-issue. Small things like a few stray hairs sticking out of the wrong place on your body could damage or eliminate your chances with a given individual, and thus make you miss out on an opportunity to enjoy the sweetness of life.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money for something else
    I took the trimmer out and pop a new battery in and it didn't even start. I heard there might be some quality issue with this product but this is ridicules. I didn't even had a chance to use it.
    ** Update **
    Amazon immediately sent a replacement and I received it in 4 days. The trimmer seems to pull the hairs out of the nose in order to cut them. This is the first time I'm afraid of a nose trimmer. I will recommend people to use with care.

    1-0 out of 5 stars TRIMMER???
    It did not trim the hair but pull the hair out...It is a good accompaniment if you are on the highway for a long long trip...When you are sleepy, just trun it on and pull your nose hair...Better than any refreshing stuffs!!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Painful
    The first one of these I received painfully pulled hairs as it cut them.I ordered a replacement which was slightly better, but had the same problem.I would stay away from this model. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Hygiene is KEY~!
    In the course of making my DVDs on sexual Mastery, NEW SEX NOW
    and GODDESS WORSHIP, I had the opportunity to create some
    very special intimate moments with some very amazing women,
    and I can tell you that personal hygiene is KEY to creating intimacy.

    It's tough to get close to a woman if you've got ugly ingrown hairs pocking up
    your entire face and/or neck. The Braun cleaning system is that extra step of
    caution that I use to make sure my razor is not working against me instead of
    for me. My wife is extremely appreciative of my smooth, clear skin every time I shave she rubs my face with appreciation.

    But by all means, do not let a less-than-smooth situation take away
    any opportunities you may have to enjoy life's greatest pleasure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works as Advertised
    Before I switched to the Activator, used to bathe my Braun foil and cutter in alcohol after every use.It's amazing how much bacteria-attracting goop can collect in an electric razor, even if you brush it clean daily.Cleaning daily with alcohol helped clear up my skin, but was time-consuming.

    Using the clean & shave system saves me time, but costs more.I found that the first cartridge I used lasted nearly 60 days even with everyday cleaning.After 45 days or so, the fluid started to darken and by about 60 days, it was too full of debris to continue to use in good conscience.I now change every 30 days, even if there is fluid remaining.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works Great with my Activator 8585
    This stuff keeps my electric razor nice and clean.The lemony smell is present, and the razor head is still pristine a month later.If I travel for a few days without the base to clean the razor, I'm more likely to get razor burn on my face and neck.After a good cleaning cycle, the razor works like it's brand new!Given the choice, I'd rather use the cleaner every day instead of less frequently.

    I'm not sure why people are trying their darndest to conserve the refills.Braun expects them to last about 30 days.My charging base still says "Full" and about 3/4 of the liquid is left. Hopefully I will get 2 or 3 more weeks from it since the "Half" light hasn't come on yet.

    I'd probably spend as much in Mach 3 Turbo blades and shaving gel over the time I expect the cleaner to last.When I factor in the convenience of the electric razor and benefits of keeping it clean, this seems like a great product for me.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Be careful of shipping charges
    I just placed an order for these as part of a larger order.When I looked at my shopping cart I saw that not only does this item not qualify for SuperSaver shipping, but it is back ordered into April (over a month), and the shipping charges are over $11.00 on a $7.99 item.At almost $19.00 and a months wait, no thank you.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lemon fresh Shave
    I agree with most reviewers that this product works great at its designed intent - to clean the razor after use, although at a high cost.Also as seen in previous reviews, besides making my Braun 7570 razor like brand new (and smelling like a bowl of Fruit-Loops) after each use, these expensive cartridges beg the user to investigate creative ways to "cheat" the system (i.e. refill them with inexpensive ingredients from the local discount drug store, plug the hole between uses to prevent evaporation, etc).I noticed that the instructions in the Clean and Charge manual tell you not to refill them, and I would worry about letting the hair and particles ferment in the bottom for too long anyhow.Also, according to the manual, the cleaner machine will quit working if you don't change the cartridge soon after it tells you to, which is another reason i haven't tried to trick it yet. Finally, the razor runs about as long in the cleaning machine as it does during a shave.Does this make the razor's motor and other moving parts wear out twice as fast in the long run?I think this self-cleaning idea is just a cash cow bearing pleasant-smelling blue milk for Braun. I give it 4 stars however, because this cleaning product actually works perfectly, and it's not really just a hunk of plastic with a half-pint of alcohol in it (although an equal amount of good Scotch would cost more than the $8.00 i paid for two of these cartridges).The cartridge is designed to trap and filter the hairs and engage with a pump in a way that is easy to install and replace.I think it does this well. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars as good as waxing, but not for bikini line
    I used to use wax strips to wax my legs, which were relatively fast and easy. Until I found my SilkEpil. The first time I used it I didn't even try it with the head which supposedly makes it less painful, because I am used to waxing. I was a little shocked by the pain at first, but quickly got used to it, and by the end of the session it was more like a warm sensation with no pain. I then tried it on my bikini line with the head to reduce pain. I have since decided never to try it again. Waxing is equally painful, but lasts half-a-second, where this takes 5 minutes to do a couple square inches. Very uncomfortable, I didn't even finish. However, it also comes with a shaver head which is very convenient. (you can trim your bikini hair to half a centimeter) I did both of my lower legs in 20 minutes on the first time, and have been quicker since. It also takes only a couple minutes to clean it. WELL WORTH THE MONEY. I was spending much more for the wax strips. (which are about 6 bucks per waxing, which is a fraction of the cost for professional waxing). Another benefit to this over waxing is that the hair doesn't have to be as long for it to be effective. Which is a major perk to my husband, because I don't have to go as long with gorilla legs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars When Intimacy is Vital...

    In the course of making my DVDs on sexual Mastery, NEW SEX NOW
    and GODDESS WORSHIP, I had the opportunity to create some
    very special intimate moments with some very amazing women,
    and I can tell you that personal hygiene is KEY to creating intimacy.

    It's tough to get close to a woman if her leg hairs are scratchy or
    disctracting. The Braun 3370 can give very good results if
    used properly and if your legs hairs are responsive. My wife actually uses this
    model epilator with some very good results for her (and us!) Try it or one of
    the similar models on amazon, and if you don't get good results, just
    sell it on the Amazon marketplace so you'll only be out a few dollars.

    But by all means, do not let a less-than-smooth situation take away
    any opportunities you may have to enjoy life's greatest pleasure.

    4-0 out of 5 stars First time buyer
    If you are a first time buyer/user, do read a sample of reviews - it will help a lot in the decision making process. I thank everybody who have contributed their reviews, as it helped me make my decision. As for the product, this is the perfect thing to use when in between the waxing stages. If you are used to waxing, there is no pain. I have been waxing for the past 5 years and the pain was no more then what I experience while waxing. However, if you have never waxed before you will feel a bit of a prick and redness. Lower legs are definitely much easier to do than the upper legs - but hold you skin taut and you will be fine. The biggest challenge is figuring out how fast to move the epilator - initially I ended up breaking my hair rather than pulling it out. I definitely recommend waxing before using this product. This way you are only dealing with so much hair at a time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best epilator
    After reading reviews and wanting a hair removal system that I could use on my bikini line, underarms and legs without shaving or going to the salon for waxing, I purchased this item yesterday. Beacuse I had already shaved my legs before purchasing, I was unable to test it on my legs, but I did do it on my bikini line. I have very course dark hair on my bikini area and I have been shaving for a few weeks because I have been taking my 7 month old daughter to waterbabies classes. I put a cold ice pack on the area before starting off about 30-40 seconds and then I started. My area was already short due to last weeks shaving. As I went over the bikini area I was surprised at how little pain their was. It was like a litte pinch, but it subsided as I went along. Now the area is smooth excpet for some ingrown hairs I had to take out with tweezers because of the shaving. The after effect was redness and the feeling I just had a waxing. No pain or anything. I have tried other epilators in the past and they all went back. This one I am keeping. I will have to try it on my legs and underarms when the hair begins to grow back from shaving. This is fantastic. All ladies should try it. Just remember, in the bikini area, make sure you use the trimmier attachment to make he hairs less dense. Also try the ice if you are very sensitive to pain. I will update my review in a couple of weeks when I get to try my legs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My New Best Friend!
    This item has really been a Godsend for me, I cannot praise it enough. It has given me the freedom to be able to go on vacation and wear a bikini without having to spend 45 mins in the bathroom shaving every other day, I can go to the closet and pick out a skirt or sleeveless top without having to worry that I did not shave my legs or underarms. I can be with my partner at anytime without worrying about the stubble appearing on my legs.

    I honestly dont know why I did not buy this before, I think it is because my mother used to have an ancient epilator that I used once and never tried again due to the incredible pain and the fact that it barely removed any hairs.

    I got to the point of being so sick of shaving every day for 15 years, I read the reveiws saying the the epilators have come a long way and and decided to try it again. The first time you use it it is very important to grit your teeth and just go for it, it hurts but you must do it, do all of the areas you usually shave including underarms and bikini line. It is true that the Braun makes epilating the knees pretty impossible but that is the only downside, it is an excellent machine, and removes 100% of hairs that are not to short for it to grasp. The hair only needs to be about 2mm for the Braun to be able to pull it. The pain releiving head really helps also, it is much like when the nurse scratches your arm prior to taking blood, it kind of very lightly scratches your skin as it goes along so that the hair pulling is not so painful, it sounds bad but is not, it makes it much easier to bear.

    If you can grit your teeth and bear the first couple of times you epilate, it becomes much easier as you get used to it, the hair gets weaker and weaker every time you epilate and is removed easier every time. Dont forget the hair grows in cycles so you will have to epilate a few times, possibly every 3-4 days until all the hair is gone. After that it will stay relatively smooth for several weeks. When it does grow back it will come gradually and it will be thinner and softer, there will not be that stubbly feeling as when you shave. You will be able to get away with wearing skirts and having somebody touch your legs even while it is growing back through.

    If you can bear the pain the first few times, and really give this product a chance you will be so thankful that you did, you will be so rewarded in ways that you probably would not even have noticed before. Just being able to jump into the pool when friends come over, or a spontaneous afternoon at the beach without the headache of having to prepare.

    Really the epilator has given me a freedom I have wished for all my life, I am kicking myself that I did not buy it before. It is worth every penny. I could never find the time to go to the salon to get waxed, or justify the expense, and the home kits are awkward and messy, you have to be a double-jointed octopus to get to everywhere that needs waxing, and it would take a lot of boxes and a hell of a lot of time to do a whole 2 legs, bikini and underarms. So I have shaved all my life. There were never any other options, I thought about laser but it is too expensive, time consuming, and I have been told the hairs do grow back. The epilator has been my answer to the eternal hair removal dilema and this particular model is excellent, it has given me my 'hairless dream'! saved me so much time, and for only $60! Worth 10 stars and then some. ... Read more

    As the only electric shaver with a four-way moving head, Braun’s Syncro System is set apart from other models. Its head both pivots and oscillates to enlarge the foil holes by 60% more than on other Braun shavers, capturing more facial hairs in a single glide. Additionally, the Syncro Shaver’s three-stage shaving system provides a closer and cleaner shave--the first foil shaves stubble and shorter hairs, the integrated cutter lifts and trims close-lying or curled hairs, and then the second foil shaves them off. An extendable trimmer also pops up for shaving longer hair, such as mustaches or sideburns. For added comfort and to reduce nicks and cuts, the head adjusts to the contours of your face.

    The Syncro System operates either via a cord or cordless for up to 50 minutes (or two to three weeks of daily shaves) following a 60-minute charge. Smart Logic technology ensures that the battery is always operating at its peak. Ideal for travel, this shaver adjusts to any international voltage standards and comes with a travel pouch and a cleaning brush. --Cristina Vaamonde

    Editor's note: This is a reconditioned shaver. Reconditioned generally means that the shaver has been returned to the manufacturer from the retailer due to packaging damage. Each shaver undergoes extensive testing, cleaning, and repairs to bring it back to like-new condition. Includes a 2-year warranty against defects, excluding the foil and cutter block. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Holy Crap!
    I'd coasted along for a while on an old Norelco 3-wheel and a Panasonic 3-blade linear.Used in combination, they were not too bad, I could look presentable if I needed too, though real smoothness eluded me, particularly on the neck.But very unsatisfying...made me less interested in shaving at all.

    Just got the Braun 7526...and damn, what a difference.The thing is incredible.Even without the "lectric shave" stuff I've heard helps, it's the best shave I've ever had from an electric.I can actually get smooth even on the neck, and better yet - it's not irritating at all!It is the Dyson of shavers...if you're used to old crap, you will not be disappointed.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Reconditioned Braun 7526 Shaver
    The shaver performs very well and provides a close shave. Our unit developed a non-functioning switch about three months after purchase. However we returned the unit to Braun and it was promptly replaced with what appears to be a new unit and returned to us. Again the returned shaver works well and we are very satisfied.

    4-0 out of 5 stars better than my old razor
    I bought this from amazon a couple of months ago for $49 - $20 credit that I had on account.I replaced an old norelco, and the braun gives me a much improved shave.Much closer, just as easy to use, faster moving blades, and it takes a somewhat shorter time to finish.Of course, the fact that my norelco was about 8 or 9 years old and I never sharpened the blades or oiled the rotors probably doesn't make it a fair comparison, but overall, I'm happy with the new braun.I'm just lazy and I don't want to do much maintenance, so time will tell...I am now cleaning the braun daily-ish with the brush and weekly-ish with compressed air.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this Item
    Don't be fooled by the low, low price.They keep the cleaning stand, and for the price of the stand, you might as well buy a new unit (shaver and stand together) instead of trying your luck with a reconditioned shaver.I feel like I've been ripped off!

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great razor! $50? $20 is even better!
    I've been using this razor for about 2 months already. At first, I was disappointed because it wasn't cutting the growth on my neck close enough. I'm in the military and have to shave every working day, so having a shadow isn't acceptable. I bought some William's Lectric Shave as suggested by other Amazon reviewers and it really does make all the difference. The William's is $5 at wal-mart for a 7oz bottle (Amazon sells smaller bottles for a lower price). I've got sensitive skin and for some reason using this Braun without the William's will irritate my neck. It's still a little irritating, but not nearly as much so as the first month (especially without the William's).

    Shaving takes me about 5 minutes which is only a little bit longer then with a Bic razor. This Braun does not come with the automatic cleaning stand, but brushing it clean (cleaning brush is included) with every use only takes a minute or two and is fairly easy. The Braun sometimes misses a few spots on my face, which is no big deal because it doesn't happen too often. I've been checking the shaving foil every day, there aren't any holes yet. This Braun holds a battery charge very well, the red warning light came on after using it for 3 weeks. Assuming the foil will last me another few months, I am making this Braun my permanant razor.

    I paid only $20 for this Braun by signing up for the Amazon.com Visa card (takes $30 off) so that's a great deal. It might be refurbished, but it looks and works like new. ... Read more

    I'm not sure why the other reviewers had such bad luck with their foils.Mine never crack or perforate.The cutter block is the limiting factor; it does get dull after no more than 18 months, and sometimes as few as 12.I've been using shavers with these foils for about 8 years now, so I have a fair amount of experience with them.

    I've had various Braun razors since I was in bootcamp almost 15 years ago and my company commander required my face to be cleanshaven at all times.This meant I had to shave 4 times a day.The toll that took on my face with even a good blade razor was awful, and I only survived by eventually switching over to a Braun rechargable that shaved almost as close as a blade but with far less damage.

    I've been a solid Braun customer ever since. Unfortunately, while consumer magazines tout electric razors as a money-saving tool, Gillette (the owner of the Braun brand for several years) has done a marvelous job migrating Braun customers to buy disposable replacement parts.The cleaning system that comes with most new Brauns is a great way to get an annuity stream from customers who mistakenly thought they could buy a Braun and be done with spending money.

    While the value of the cleaning system replacements is sketchy, the 7000FC replacement combo isn't.After anywhere between 6 and 12 months of use, the foil on a Braun typically gets one or two small holes.These end up giving you nasty, painful small cuts.The cutter too wears down a bit.I notice when I replace both shaving my entire face takes probably 30% less time and is generally closer.Well worth buying.

    One other note.This product is a great reason to sign up for Amazon Prime.Repeated free two day shipping on a product at a substantial discount to stores - I don't know how Amazon makes money on these transactions, but I'm glad they're letting us do them!


    4-0 out of 5 stars Newest foil block solves trouble with older ones
    I have recently purchased my 3rd replacement combo. A major annoyance with my two previous foil blocks (including the one that shipped with my shaver) was that it would very easily pop off my shaver, sometimes even just from the vibration of shaving. I was pleasantly surprised that the foil block has apparently been redesigned, because the latest one I bought sits solidly on my shaver.

    While Braun suggests that you replace the foil and cutter block every 18 months, very likely you will want to do it much sooner.
    For me about replacing it about once a year seems right.

    I'll give it 4 stars instead of 5, because it just doesn't last as long as advertised. But perhaps I am luckier with my newest replacement in that aspect as well.

    4-0 out of 5 stars best system, but change regularly
    Never let it be said that electric shaving saves you money.

    But, as one that can't really be bothered wet shaving, plus when I do I cut myself to shreds, I have to say this is the best system I've owned and it's worth swapping the foil way more often than the 18 months mentioned in the manual; I tend to only go 3-6 months before swapping and I can really notice the difference.

    The other way I generally extend the life of these foils is, if like me you don't shave over the weekend, when Monday morning comes, use the clippers on the shaver to cut your growth down to a stubble and then shave; I find this gives a better cut and a cleaner shave after that.

    So - a good product but could be tougher (it should last longer than 6 months) and could be less expensive.

    Happy shopping

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great foil ... before the holes appear
    I've been using Braun 7526 for 6 months before the hole appeared in the foil. Well, if you do not press hard, it doesn't hurt your face. However, after a couple of weeks the hole became larger and, finally, the sharp pieces of foil suddendly started to stick up. I scratched my face badly. Before the hole the shaving was very nice, though. Braun's warranty doesn't cover the foil and cutter block, but they agreed to replace mine free of charge. Nice customer service. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Surprise!It actually works very well.
    God has a cruel sense of humor.Why else would he design so many males so that their hairs would fall out of their heads and sprout out of their ears, nose, and back?

    Panasonic has done the mankind a favor by inventing this much needed gizmo, though no man with any pride would admit to buying or even needing this device.It's doubtful that Americans would have ever invented this device.It took the Japanese - who in their country have hair salons where women can go get their pubic hairs (yes you read that right) trimmed, styled, and colored - to do so.

    The device in the photo looks kinda scary - who'd enjoy shoving a mechanical device with a buzzing blade into his nose?I finally took the plunge and bought this thing, because the errant nose hairs constantly tickled inside of my nose.The days of shoving a pair of scissors inside of my nose is finally over.

    The device is very well designed, it turns out.The tip is small and very smooth to touch, and you can actually press the tip to inside of your nose without any discomfort.The noise and vibration is minimal, and the small spinning disc (enclosed inside the metal cage) cuts very well, with no discomfort.The device itself is small and comfortable to hold.

    After you're done "shaving", look at the sink below and be prepared to be surprised how much hair were shorn.You can also use device to precisely cut an errant hair sticking out of your sideburn as well.Great device, if you can ever get over the ticklish concept that you actually need a nose hair trimmer.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Hmmmm...
    Is it me or do all the reviews for this product sound phony?They don't sound genuine... almost as if someone who works for Panasonic wrote them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works great, and here's some tips
    I've never dared use one of these but finally got tired of stray hairs peeking out.I put it to use last night and it works great.What more needs to be said about a nose hair trimmer??

    A little more.First, the light actually is useful...just not when you've got it stuck in your nose cutting hair.Its use is when you periodically need to examine inside to see how you're doing.So spend the big bucks for the lighted model, otherwise you'll have to keep a flashlight around.

    Second, when you first get it, it has a light oil film on the cutter.Good for the machinery but not so much for your nose.So I recommend you take an alcohol swab, take the cutter apart like they say and clean everything before the first use.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nose Hair trimmer that REALLY WORKS
    I have had 5 nose hair trimmers, none worked. I purchased the Panosonic ER421KC and it really works. For the guys who resort to scissors, this is the way to go. Easy and not as noisey as the hedge clipper style trimmers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Takes a lickin' and keeps on trimmin' (my nose hair)
    This is a product that does what it promises...and more!The Panasonic ER421KC Nose and Ear Hair Trimmer, Wet/Dry, Lighted really can handle the tough jobs, believe me: I am a tough job.I wish you could all see a before picture of me.Andy Rooney looked like Leonardo Dicaprio next to me (at least in terms of unwanted facial hair).Perhaps it's the fact that I've been living as a hermit for the past two years in a remote mountain region of British Colombia, Canada, but my ear and nose hair was overgrown, and as one little boy I passed in the street described it, "bushy".When I first used this product though, the Panasonic ER421KC Nose and Ear Hair Trimmer, Wet/Dry, Lighted, I became a new man--reborn, rejuvenated.Women find me attractive--well, at least one does; I am recently engaged--and I have a new confidence that I didn't have before.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Replacement blades expensive/hard to find.
    Norelco makes good electric razors but replacement blades are very expensive and difficult to find.Not carried in grocery stores.This is a significant hidden cost and matter of inconvenience.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm giving this razor 5 stars because I cannot give it 6....
    After several years of a lower-end Norelco, I splurged and tried out the 8894.My experience has been nothing short of spectacular.

    This razor truly shaves better than any I have ever used.I find that it provides a far-superior shave to my old 6000 series, equal to the closeness of a straight razor.Burdened with sensitive skin, I find the handy sensitivity feature of the 8894 worthwhile.The all-digital display that indictes when to rinse, service, and charge the razor is as helpful as it is nifty.I bought my razor at the end of March and fully charged it.I DID NOT HAVE TO RECHARGE UNTIL THE END OF MAY!My razor truly gives me 100 minutes of operation between charges.Most days I can shave with my 8894 in two minutes, about half the time I could shave with other, lesser razors.

    Look around, find the best deal, but don't hesitate to go high-end Norelco.The extra features are nice, but it's the superior quality that make this razor worthwhile.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The one to buy ifyou've got sensitive skin
    Although I'm a couple of years past the half-century mark, my skin is still prone to break outs.That is why I can't use a blade as my primary shaver.I've had the 8894XL since it first came out.It gives a very good shave, but not as close as a blade.But the best thing is there is minimal irritation.

    Thinking I could get a closer shave with an electric razor, I got the top of the line Braun.It did give me a shave as close as a blade, but at the expense of great irritation and break outs.It made me appreciate the Norelco more.

    If getting the closest possible shave at all costs is the most important quality you are seeking in an electric razor, get the Braun.However, if you are plagued with irritation when shaving, then this Norelco is the shaver for you.It is for me.

    Oh, and the razor is easy to clean.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Will I ever have to charge it?
    Amazing how many shaves you can get in its 100 minutes charge time.I have had it over four weeks and after its initial charge, using it every day, I still have 55 minutes of charge time left.The shave seems to be closer than my old 6000 series shaver that I lost.I went all out and purchased this "over rated razor" and found it to exceed my wildest expectations.I have a thick course beard, however tender neck skin and it works great with no burning.Close and comfortable is the easiest way to describe the shave.

    I was lucky to purchase the razor in March when the razor was $134.00 with free shipping and a $30 rebate.This razor is however well worth the current asking price and Amazon is still the low price leader.Check the pricing out yourself.Thank you Amazon and Norelco my face is happy again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Old Hand
    Hi all

    This is my first product review and I have never endorsed a product before...
    I think you can call me an old-hand in electrical shavers.I started to shave in 1978 using a Remington electrical shaver. My first Phillips/Norelco shaver was a gift from my grandfather in 1983.
    Since then I have bought 5-6 Phillips shavers in succession (a new one every 3-4 years). They require no maintenance except for cleaning, a yearly head change and 2 year battery change. With each new shaver the shaving gets better and it is difficult to see any improvements that can be made in these machines. But they DO get them to shave better.

    In the meanwhile I got several other brand shaving machines as gifts (Wet, Grid etc) but after experimenting for a few days I always resumed shaving with the Phillips dry shavers. I am not a fan of wet-electrical shavers (even Phillips).

    I have had the Spectra 8894 for two months now. This one is a wonder and I strongly recommend it. I think if you buy a new shaver every couple of years you should get yourself the top model, the difference being 25$ or so per YEAR of use.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very good product
    Yea, it hurts (mainly under my arms), but it works very very well.It doesn't really hurt on my legs at all, but it is pretty time consuming to get all the hair off the first few times. It probably works best on small areas, like the underarms, for this reason. Once your hair starts to grow back sparser and weaker, it works a lot faster. Be careful- the first time I used it under my arms, I burned myself because I held it too close to my skin for too long.Its easy to use and maintain, and the benefits definitely outweigh the setbacks.

    5-0 out of 5 stars As good as the high priced hair removal systems!!
    This hair removal system works just as well as the higher priced ones out there!!Very happy with how it works!Used it to do my legs today and of course there is the 2 minute sting going on till my skin becomes accustomed to it...the pain we go through to have smooth legs........LOL!!!Recommend this Remington EP1000 very much!

    1-0 out of 5 stars S_U_C_K_S!!!
    Just recieved this product and could not wait to try it. Unitill it touched my skin. The pain isn't to bad since your leg will go numb after a few minutes. But the BAD part is ...when you look at your legs it only cut not even 1/2 of your hairs!!!!!!!!!! So you endure PAIN and your legs aren't even smooth. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !! Don't WASTE YOUR MONEY. I'm sending mine back !!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful! I'll never wax again!
    I purchased this item strictly to use on my upper lip and chin. I normally wax, and even still got a little top layer of skin yanked off. (which turned into a nasty little scab as it healed)I also still had to go back over with tweezers for those strays. I threw out my wax as soon as I used this! It's soo fast and easy. The pain is minimal(when you first start)to nothing(after you've started). Especially if you're used to waxing. And there were NO strays, even the shortest hairs were gone. I personally had no irritation. This thing does a better job by far than any wax, even at a salon. I'm so excited that I'm trying to work up the nerve to do my legs and "other areas", I've never waxed anywhere else though,that's the only reason I'm a little hesitant.I've never tried an epilator before and I'm sooo glad I got this! Although I'm a little mad at myself for not getting one sooner!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Half bottle of wine...
    and your good to go. Numbs the pain, and worth the time saved from not having to shave in the shower everyday. Love the job it does under my arms!!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A high quality product
    Norelco recommends that you replace the shaving heads once a year for optimal performance. I forgot all about this and noticed that it was taking longer and longer to get a smooth shave. When I read the instructions that came with the razor I realized that it had been almost 5-years.
    The installation was simple, the cost very reasonable (considering 5-years) and I couldn't believe what I had been "gradually" missing as far as a quick, very smooth shave.
    My razor is like brand new.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Figaro Would Be Proud!
    Our son went to see the opera "The Barber of Seville" today with his fourth grade classmates. Not only was it reportedly over 3 hours long, but the singing was in Italian (which is fine, but was not, as promised, in English), it took more than 30 minutes just to get out of the parking garage, and there were no snacks!

    I mention this not only because I love our son, but also because I was wondering how Figaro (said barber) would have liked these refills for the Norelco Quadra 7 and Quadra Action rechargeable electric razor.I imagine he would have loved the shaver(see separate review for the Norelco 6826XL), but that at some point he'd have sung a dramatic aria about the need to semi-regularly change your blades.

    It's easy to neglect changing the blades, as the Norelco works wonderfully and the deterioration is imperceptible at first. But after about 2 years on the SAME SET OF BLADES the performance is noticeably worse.This neatly packaged replacement set is easy to use(but try to keep the two part razor head and blade together as you place them in the shaver), the price seems reasonable, and it shaves again as if it were new: fast, smooth, close.The box indicates that it replaces blades for models

    7885/7866/7865/7864/7845/7825/6891/6887/6886/6885/6857/6866/6865/6848/6829/6828/6826XL/7617/7616X,

    but then confusingly adds, "Not all Quadra model numbers may be listed." It states also "DOES NOT FIT ANY OTHER NORELCO MODELS(presumably this means they fit Quadra 7 and Quadra Action Razors only)."My one complaint is an environmental/engineering one-why was a big box used for shipping such a small item?

    The fat lady sings; the review is over. Thank you for your patience.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Quadra action musings
    I have previously used a triple head Norelco razor that was corded so I decided to try a cordless product and got it at a reasonably discounted price in my Gold Box.I don't really think there should be much adjustment for me because I was already using the old model.I agree that the shave is very close but I have to really work at it and it takes as long to shave as ever. I have tried to use pre-electric shave and simply wash and dry my face with equal results.I tried shaving with a cord connected and without the cord and the RPM's of the unit seems to be about the same.It is exceedingly quiet and is quite smooth over my face after the shave.Cleaning is simple, just washing it.I plan to continue to use it for the next several weeks to get a fair trial.Although it was a little bit more expensive than I would have liked, it seems to be a decent shaver.I give it 4 stars simply because it doesn't make shaving any faster for me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars expensive but worth it
    smoothest shave I've ever had, cuts fast & close, no pinching, great trim blades, charges fast, single charge lasts about a month for me.It is easy to clean too.I'd definately buy the same razor if someone stole this one from me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best electric shaver ever!
    Speaking as someone who has been shaving for 20+ years, primarily with blade over electric (Gillette Mach 3 for last few years), I can honestly say the Braun 8585 is the best shave I've ever had. As we all know traditional razor blade replacement prices have been going through the roof for years, and for guys like me with tough beards the blade itself only gives you about a week or two worth of good shaves. Due to my skin type, I was only able to shave every other day in order to avoid serious skin irritation. Now, with the Braun 8585, I shave every day, no irritation, and as close as I ever got with traditional razors. I've only been using it for about three weeks (what they say is your average adjustment period), but I feel the shaves have been great since day one. It's definitely one of the best looking electric razors I've seen, and it's self cleaning feature is a great extra. Cleans and recharges at the same time, in the same base. Overall, I'd say it's well worth the money and I'll never go back to blades.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible
    This is easily the best electric razor there is.I have super sensitive skin and can use it daily without any irritation.

    The only negative would be that the cleaning cycle is a bit loud, but after only 3 days im already used to it.

    If you want a really close shave and almost no iritation this is the razor for you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars worth every penny
    I feel like I have to share my opinion of this shaver.I found other people's reviews to be so helpful when I was trying to find the best electric shaver recently.

    I previously had a Braun 6520 for years and was very happy with it until the day it died.I went a while without an electric shaver and finally decided to get a new one.I am not a rich man, but the Braun 8585 is worth every penny.I am extremely happy with it.I believe it to be the finest electric shaver available today.The other two shavers I tried during my recent search failed in so many ways by comparison.You really do get what you pay for with electric shavers.

    One of the shavers I tried was the Remington MS3-1700 Titanium 3 MicroScreen Ultra.By comparison the Remington was much louder especially the sideburn trimmer which made me feel like I should insert earplugs before putting that thing so close to my ear.Also, even though it has the 3 screens, it took a much longer time to shave and it did not do that good of a job.

    This Braun works really great and is impressively better than my old one which I was very happy with.I highly recommend the 8585!


    3-0 out of 5 stars Fast shaver, poor neck area shaving, probably over-rated
    I am a regular buyer on Amazon, with a pattern of buying 25 items a year for the last 5 years (yikes!) and I have never written a review about anything I bought.

    I bought this razor based on the high acclaim that other users have given it.I have been using Mach 3 blades for the last several years, and decided that I might try to save a bit by buying an upper-end electric.

    In short, I'm not THAT impressed, and continue to shave with both a Mach 3 regular razor & this one.My biggest complaint is the dismal job it does under your jaws and on the neck.I know you're suppossed to give an electric razor 3-4 weeks, but this has not helped.My search for the perfect electric continues.

    The pros for this razor include how fast it shaves, and what a good job it does on flat surfaces on your face.I think because it has a big flat retangular head, it does poorly on neck area because the entire head can't be firmly placed again your skin.That's probably why a Norelco with it's triple head design does better on neck areas and small areas (if you have a big neck, maybe this electric will perform better).

    Other aspects such as looks and build quality are a consideration but for me they fall a distant second to issues such as the shaving quality.The razor might look good, or have too big a base for cleaning, or clean itself but when I'm at work, I will remember the razor on how poorly it shaved my neck.Overall, I would happily spend another $100 to get a razor that does half a job that a Mach 3 hand-held blade and good old shaving cream will do.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent electric shaver
    I've been a blade man since my very first shave over 25 years ago.I tried an electric shaver once and hated the results, so I stuck with blades despite their rising costs.

    I saw a couple deals come and go on the Braun 8585 at a "hot deals" site I frequent, and I finallybit on the third one.Wow!Very impressive.

    The razor burned my skin after the first use, but I used it straight out of the box, instead of running it through a cleaning cycle first.Since the first shave it has been very comfortable.

    There are those who say it shaves as close as a blade and those who say it doesn't.I suppose that depends on many factors.
    I have a tough beard, but I also don't mind spending the extra time with the Braun to get my face smooth.For me it shaves as close as a blade.

    I can only reiterate some excellent tips that have already been given:

    1. To save cleaning fluid, always remove the cleaning cartridge from the unit and recap it tightly.Also the cleaning fluid is most denatured alcohol, so if you wanted to buy a bottle of that to refill the cartridge it would probably work fine.

    2. Pop the head of the razor off and shake it over your garbage can before you stick it into the cleaner. This will "trick" the cleaner into Eco mode 99% of the time.Saves fluid and noise.

    3. The noise is only for a couple of seconds two or three times per 30 minute cleaning cycle, and only in the beginning.Most of the cleaning cycle seems to be drying time, so the unit is quiet.

    4. A long time electric razor user warned me to be careful with these ultra-thin foil razors.The foil head can crack sooner than you'd expect and you end up cutting your face, so inspect your foil head regularly.

    5.Enjoy the Braun 8585, or 8595!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Shaver
    I've had 2 remington microscreen shavers and neither did the job that this norelco does. i like this design better, it conforms much better to the shape of my face and gives a smooth shave. Great deal and worth the thirty-some bucks I paid for it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beats Cordless!
    My beefs with my old cordless shavers have always been the weight and the lack of power, especially when the batteries are low.

    This is a lightweight and powerful shaver at an excellent price!

    Plus, cmon, how many times in your life have you really needed to shave without an electrical outlet within reach?

    5-0 out of 5 stars for the price you cannot do better
    I was a long time razor shaver until a couple of years ago I purchased a Braun electric shaver; it was never to my satisfaction but I did not give it much thought; when it almost stopped shaving I came back to Amazon and found this Norelco; it gives a smooth and close shave; it is quiet and very easy to clean; I love it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't Go Wrong
    This is a great basic electric razor, with the only features you will ever need.It shaves and trims nicely, costing a fraction of the "higher" end razors.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great basic Electric Razor
    I have been a Norelco Electric Razor user for about fifteen years. In fact this new one just replaced my original. When I first received it one month ago I was immediatly skeptical because it said Made in China. My original norelco was made in Holland as was all Norelcos. After using it every day for a month,needless to say, I won't need to pull my old one back out. I'm impressed with how comfortable and easily it takes off my whiskers. The floating head is truly a floating head,not just the blades like my older model. It gets close around my nose and mouth,and there is no irritated skin left behind. If you have never used an electric,give it a try for at least a couple weeks before giving up. It will take that long for your skin to adjust. Don't bear down,but just let the razor do the work,and I'm sure you will enjoy the results. Norelco is easy on the skin. JB ... Read more

    Why expensive product?, like the title saids all purpose, It is great, cheap, and comes with amazing accesories.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Cannot recommend this
    I owned a Wahl trimmer before and decided to try out the Norelco Trimmer coz of its price. I only use the trimmer occassionally. The trimmer is nice and light, and handles the job well. Even liked the nose trimmer attachment. The battery charger however, is a piece of junk. I had followed instructions and charged the unit for the first time as indicated in the manual. I used the trimmer a couple of times after that till the charge ran out. When I tried to recharge it, it just died out. No indicator light - nothing. It looks pretty, but is anything but sturdy. I switched back to my Wahl trimmer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't beat it for price
    I use this groomer for everything.It cuts through the hair on my head with no trouble when I decide it's time for the bald look.It does a nice job of trimming nose and ear hair.It allows me to trim my moustache and eyebrows with great accuracy.I even use it on my girlfriend to trim something that shall go unmentioned here, but she never complains about the results.I would buy this product again.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great deal
    I was looking for a good trimer for my beard. I was also looking for a nose and ear hair trimmer. I came across this set and it had both items I was looking for in one package. When I received the trimmer it was packaged in a clear plastic casing. It comes with a cheap charging stand holder. The item worked better than expected. It trimed my beard well. The nose hair came off without pain. The set is light weight and the case holder not the best, In fact it was slightly difficult to put the plug into the charging stand. I liked the set since it does work well. In fact, I bought an extra one to give as a gift to my brother in law.

    1-0 out of 5 stars crappy shave... and trimmer/ shaper
    I have been using this razor for 1 month.Takes about 20 minutes to get an unclean shave. Trimmer doesn't trim very well. Plus, foil makes it difficult to see what your shaping

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best bang for buck
    Ok so i saw this shaver in a magazine ad and it caught my eye, I needed a new shaver to replace my old Norelco, so i thought i'll give this one a shot since it had alot of things to offer. I don't have a beard or goatee so i can't tell you about shaping up using the features provided on this shaver but i'm really satisfied with it so far just after the first day of use. After one quick shave, my skin felt alot smoother i like the fact that you can rinse it in water and you can go wireless. Well i must warn you though, those of you looking for a perfect shave look elsewhere and expect to pay more, because this if for more of a quick shave on the go person. For the price i recommend it to everyone and amazon.com got it to my house in 3 days with free shipping!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The only all-in-one solution
    I have a goatee and I have been looking for a single shaving device that would trim and define my beard and also give me a decent shave for those times when I don't want to use a razor.The cruzer3 was the only device I could find that claimed to do all three tasks.I took a chance and ordered it through Amazon - and I'm very happy with the purchase.The shaver works well; not as good as a razor of course, but it's great for touching up spots I missed or a full shave when I'm in a hurry.The trimming blades are well-shaped and work much better than I thought they would.A blade that extends 90 degrees from the handle works best for trimming and defining, but the cruzer3's blades work well (you just have to tilt the shaver 90 degrees from your face).The beard trimmer attachment also works well.I have a hair trimmer that I use for buzz cuts and was using it for beard trimming, but the cruzer3 works just as well.And it's one less device I have to keep track of.Finally, I appreciate the fact that I can rinse off the unit with water when I'm done.I am completely satisified with the cruzer3; it meets all of my requirements for an all-purpose shaver/trimmer.

    i got mine about a year ago. its been very handy. the battery last a long time. dont have to take the charger along or anythign its awsome. if im going out on a date or something i usually use a mach3 to get it real smooth but other than that this is preobobly the easiest way to go.

    I bought this razor 14 months ago and haven't regretted it an instant.I use this razor everyday without irritation of any kind.I use to use a regular triple bladed razor with shaving cream and I hated it due to the irritation.The Norelco doesn't shave as close but no electric will unless the blades actually touch your face (and then talk about irritation!) but it does a great job and I look well groomed.

    This razor (Spectra 8825XL) shaves comfortably and closely. Heads mould to your facial contours and just feels great on your skin. Battery lasted an entire week when I went camping.

    One of the best electric razors I've ever used.Went on vacation and a buddy of mine had one and I liked it so much I bought it.In the 2 years I've had it I never had a hair yanked out.Not as smooth as a regular razor, but no electric is.Be cautious with the replacement heads putting them in.Make sure you don't seperate the pieces as it's hard to put back together, but it should just pop right into the razor.

    3-0 out of 5 stars the heads dont last long enough

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hit a home run with this shaver
    I never owned an electric shaver before, but I hit a homer with this one. Used it 20 times so far and haven't had to recharge it. Easy to clean, and does a nice job. Completely satisfied with my purchase.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Shaves fine, but don't shave last thing before you leave.
    The shaver does a fine job of shaving as far as I am concerned.However the charging system is severely lacking.

    More than once I have had to wait 10 mins for the battery to recharge so I could finish upshaving.You can't just pop the cord into it and shave like most razors.So don't try and shave last thing before you leave in the morning.

    Theres also no indication that the battery is about to die on you.I usually can't even tell that the motor is getting slower.If you buy this razor, make sure you plug it in once a week, or you'll be left half shaven.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Remarkable electric razor...
    This razor by Norelco is excellent.I have had close shaves ever since I bought this a month ago.Two of my senior leaders borrowed my razor when their electric razors broke and they remarked how good it was.The only reason this is 4 stars is the lack of a power meter on this model.While not perfect, I consider this to be a worthwhile investment.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It works fairly well
    After much thought, I decided to buy an electric shaver. I expected to get as close shave as my razor in less time. I needed to decide from an array of brands and models. I decided to go with Norelco 6613 because it was only $35. So the investment was small.

    After getting the shaver, I gave my skin 2-3 weeks to get used to it. Now it shaves almost as close as my razor. However, I can't manage to shave off all the hair. A few always remain. But I can quickly remove those with my razor later.

    The build quality of this shaver is quite good. Mine survived a drop onto bathroom tiles from a height of 3ft.

    However, everything is not perfect with this razor. There is no low-battery indicator. The charge indicator LED only tells you whether you have plugged it in or not. It doesn't switch off after full charge.

    If you are willing to live with this drawback, then go for this shaver.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Razor

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous razor
    My first Norelco finally died recently after 13 years of use. With that kind of reliability, along with the positive reviews I read here, I decided to replace it with another Norelco, the 6843XL. I LOVE this razor. It's much quieter than my old one, which makes my wife happy when I'm shaving while she's still trying to sleep. And it shaves much closer than my old one, even shaving every day. It looks cool, keeps its charge well, and comes with a nylon carrying case. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Little shaver that is SUPER
    I like the Norelco cord/corded razor because I am in a wheel-
    chatr. Quite often I cannot get near an outlet or have a
    handicap mirror available, and I have to shave by the
    "feel-only method". The Norelco cord/cordless razor allows
    me a versatility in how and where I shave. For me this
    product is SUPER.

    4-0 out of 5 stars works like a charm
    i've been using electric shavers for years and this one works great...
    pros:
    1. you can use it when plugged in (although you obviously need to be careful about water)...no more 5 o'clock shadow because the battery isn't charged.
    2. it's multi-voltage, which means you can plug it in almost anywhere in the world (with an adaptor) and it will just work.
    3. The beard trimmer is excellent and easy to clean (unlike my old remington, where hair would get stuck in the beard trimmer and be impossible to get out)

    cons:
    1. it's a little on the big side, not so much that it's uncomfortable to hold but for travel it would be nice if it were a bit smaller.
    2. the case is made of el-cheapo vinyl or something similar, they should have sprung for a nicer case with a little padding.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Easy Adjustment from Nonelectric
    Unlike others, my motivation for going with electric shaving was based on medicine.That is, I am so many different blood thinners that, no matter what shaving system I use, I managed to get at least a small cut or two and these would bleed and bleed, etc.So, it occurred to me to try an electric razor.I read the generally excellent reviews posted at this site--thanks to all of you guys for your input!I decided on this middle of the line Norelco.It's a couple of models from the bottom; the bottom one is cord only, the next one is cordless only, and then comes this model.I spent some time at the store looking over the different blade systems; even Norelco alone has several going.I knew I didn't want that squishy mess like the most expensive, and I was reluctant to sink a small fortune into something I might not like.What decided most of all for me to get this 'Reflex Plus' system was that it has a whisker collection chamber so they don't go all over the place.I think the model(s) above this have lithium ion batteries, whereas this model still has NiCads--which I hate.If I traveled more than I do, I'd spring for the model above for about $10 more.NiCads are slow to charge and are generally crummy; I've been using them in photo equipment for 30 years.This particular razor can be used just as easily plugged into the wall, which I like.I also like the fact that it doesn't require a separate charging stand, you just plug the cord into the bottom.

    How did it shave?Great for me.I'm blond with a fairly soft beard and it plowed through about 3 days' worth of beard, making a chopping sound the whole time.I felt an occasional 'pull' but then this was fairly long beard.Once the long hair was gone I found it quite smooth to shave with.I bought some 'Lectric Shave' at the store at the same time I bought the razor but I didn't use it.Having fairly light-colored hair on my face, I never have the Fred Flintstone look regardless.I found, though, that the razor certainly got my beard acceptably close.I can still feel hair on my face, but not to an unacceptable degree.I have usually used a German Mercury double-edge razor with Wilkinson Sword blades and this doesn't shave that close.It might do better or different with another's beard.As for me, I'm delighted, and it didn't cut me at all.I'm in my forties, so don't have any deep wrinkles, etc., to cut through.That might be different.

    Unlike some of the other razors I looked at, this model is light to hold and not bulky.Some of the other, more expensive models seemed both huge and heavy.I wasn't willing to mess with that.Having only used this a couple of weeks, I can't speak to the long-term durability.Seems appropriate to the price, though.I don't think it'll cost me particularly more than blades and shave gel in the long run.It is very quiet.I am looking forward to many more pleasant shaves! ...

    The high-performance motor and contouring heads of this rechargeable wet/dry shaver from Panasonic combine to deliver a close, even shave--in or out of the shower. The shaver'sheads pivots for fluid movement and a comfortable shave. With a 13,000 rpm motor, the shaver is powerful even on thick beards and recharges fully in one hour on its AC charger stand. You can always see how much juice the shaver has by the simple markings on its built-in LED indicator panel. Structurally comfortable, the shaver offers gentle no-slip sides and a comfortable power button. Mounted on the back, a built-in trimmer pops quickly into position for trimming sideburns and jaw lines. Completely immersible, the shaver works in or out of the shower and features a stainless-steel foil surface that cleans up easily. The turbo cleaning mode adds that extra edge of cleanliness. Compact and compatible with universal voltage, the shaver makes a good traveler's companion. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars rocks
    I have a very very heavy beard and this thing is amazing, better my razors,because you can go against the grain

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great shaver, but the trimmer...
    This is a great shaver if you will use it wet. I use it everyday with mild liquid soap and it shaves surprisingly very close. However, I haven't had good results when I use it dry. It takes me a lot of time to shave and the metal foil feels kind of hot after a while. I guess this is because the razor/foil is thinner and at a higher revolution than most electric shavers. My old dry-only braun rechargeable shaver was much much better in this mode.

    Moreover, the trimmer in this Panasonic shaver is, in my particular case, unsuitable. I cannot trim my sideburns at all (not dry, nor wet). It will only trim "baby-type" hair, not sideburns.

    So, in this case, I still use my old Braun for trimmer or dry applications. For wet applications, I don't use disposable shavers anymore. This shaver is excellent when used wet.

    My 2 cents.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Loved it - but died a year later!
    I purchased this shaver on November 28, 2003. I recieved it a week later and have used it almost daily up until this past weekend. It officially died on Saturday, March 19, 2005. It lasted 15 months! (See similar review by "Jeff") Given the $130 I spend on it, I expected it to last a long, long time. I called around to see if I could get it repaired but only Panasonic will fix it but it is out of warranty.

    I've used electric shavers for many years and many models. They continue to improve. Before this Panasonic, I was a Braun fan. I have a heavy beard and sensitive skin. I gave up on the bladed razors for every day use years ago. I must admit, I use a blade razor for special events like weddings and interveiws. I got a great shave from the Pansonic and used it as a wet shaver. If you experiment with several shave creams, I believe you will eventually find one that give you a great shave with the Panasonic. The two downsides I have noticed of the Panasonci were the batter life, I seemed to get less shaves per charge lately, and it needs a good cleaning from time to time to keep bacteria from growing inside the shave block. What next? I went to my bathroom closet and pulled out my last electric shaver - a Braun 7000 series. I kept it as a back-up and I'm glad I did. After two days of using the old shaver, I have come to a few conclusions. Braun makes a great product that is reliable. The shave is not quite as good as the Panasonic and I get a bit of razor burn on my neck. Also, the dry razor saves a bit of time in the morning but I loose the morning shave therapy of hot water and the fragrance of my favorite shave cream - L'Occitane. Where do I go from here? I am thinking of trying the new Braun 8000 series. The reviews here on Amazon and other places seem very positive. I will not rule out a Panasonic in the future but they will have to improve the life span of the product. There should be no reason way this product should die after 15 months of use in this day and age.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Lasted only for a year
    I bought the ES8092 NC on December 2003 with confidence that this will be the best shaver I will ever have. Two weeks ago, it died on me. Warranty is only 1 year. Called Panasonic Headquarters, sent them email too but could not do anything about it. I will never purchase this again.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed- Have to Touch Up with my Mach 3
    I received this shaver as a Christmas gift this past year.This is my first electric shaver in many years, and as I have a heavy beard, I have always opted to shave with a manual razor.But after reading the many positive reviews here at Amazon and also in other forums, I thought that perhaps the technology had significantly advanced since I first tried an electric razor (at least 20 years ago!).

    As the instructions suggest, I "stuck with it" for about a month, and at first it seemed to work pretty well.But as I got used to the routine of shaving with an electric razor, I found that more often than not I was re-shaving spots that the Panasonic would miss with my Mach 3 razor.Even if I kept going over the area, it would not shave any closer.Secondly, the clean-up sounds easy, but it actually takes me twice as long to shave and clean this shaver versus when I use a Mach 3 (you only rinse the Mach 3 under water for a few seconds, and you are done).

    Now, I am also noticing that when I do use the Panasonic shaver, it makes a "sick sound" like a grinding noise, when I first turn it on.Perhaps this is a sign that it is going to die soon, as I have read in many of the lower rated reviews.

    After several months, I now only use this Panasonic shaver when I am in a hurry or need a quick shave.I am now back to shaving regularly with my Mach 3 (closest shave ever - Gillette has come a long way from the days of "Super Stainless" and "Blue Blades"!!)

    Although for most people, this Panasonic shaver would probably suffice, if you have a heavy beard, I would stick to using a blade and lather.The only thing I wish is that I was able to return the Panasonic Shaver for a full refund.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bad design
    While the concept of the built in comb is a good one, this design just does not work well and don't count on the vacuum catching all your clippings because it can only hold about half the volume of a shot glass. I ended throwing mine away and switching back to my old Oster hair clippers with the snap on combs for my head and bought a small rechargeable Waring beard trimmer. The twist dial for the comb length on this unit can be wrong - I gouged my beard/sideburns once with this unit. The comb unit must be removed for frequent cleaning and putting it back on correctly takes a delicate touch. The large size of the unit and comb also makes it verr difficult to trim your moustache close to your nose. Don't waste your money.

    1-0 out of 5 stars keystone cops
    As my title says this trimmer is the keystone cops of beard trimmers. The people who call this trimmer good must have peach fuzz for beards. The vacuum is a waste of money, it keeps getting clogged so you have to take it apart two or three times during trimming to keep it working. DON'T take apart the vacuum too much to clean as the spring inside is loose and it ended up in the trap of my sink. And finally forget the settings. I start off with a three setting for example and notice some of my beard is shorter than other parts and look at the settings and somehow the thing has slipped to #2. So then you do a 2 only to find out it has slipped again to 1. If you want a laugh buy this thing but if you want a trim dont buy it. Where is my old definition sixty which was battery operated but was better than this. Go back to the drawing board and do away with all the gadgetry and come out with something that trims beards properly and maintains the settings. Is that too much to ask??

    4-0 out of 5 stars Tried the rest. This is the best
    I've tried others, corded and rechargeable. Nothing beats a Norelco. The vaccum gets about 80% of the hair and cuts better then any other shaver I have had (except other Norelcos.)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Trimmer - not good for cutting hair
    I ordered this trimmer to replace a dead Panasonic trimmer. I used that trimmer both for my beard and for clipping my head hair down to very short size once every couple of months. The panasonic worked very well for both purposes.

    This Norelco is a great beard trimmer and the vac part is quite nice in that it makes much less of a mess. However, it is a horrible trimmer for thick head hair like mine. I know that that's not what it's for, but just in case someone is looking for a trimmer for the same purpose: don't buy this one. The head hair accumulates in the vac part and in front of the blade, making you empty it almost every stroke. Once full of hair, the trimmer does next to nothing until you empty it, and then is only good for another 1 stroke. The motor also easily gets overloaded in thick hair and stops.

    Again - fine beard trimmer, but do not use for head hair. I'll be buying the updated Panasonic model again to replace this one for that purpose.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply, the best shaver. Period.
    I went from using a cheap, one foil Braun model - the only way I had ever shaved - to the Norelco 7775x.The Braun had to be retired after the foil began rusting and essentially burned my face, caught hairs, etc.Well! I must say that research paid off in my case as I ran across this top-of-the-line Norelco.It's fantastic!While I don't believe the Nivea packs are enough shaving gel for keeping the "gliding" feeling, the 7775x is simply the overall best, closest shaving electric razor out there.I could go on and on about what a difference it is to be able to wet shave, shave in the shower, etc. but it's just so impressive when my boss complimented the closeness of the shave! Highly recommended, the 7775x left my sensitive neck feeling baby smooth and 100% better than my Braun left it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Close and comfortable
    I've been using it for a couple of months now.It's as close as a Mach 3 when you shave in the direction of the grain, but much more comfortable.No cuts and almost no skin irritation.I use it withmy regular shaving gel, works great.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Norelco's Best-TOP OF THE LINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My name is Michael.I live near Baton Rouge, LA.I'm 42 andI have shaved with Norelco Electric Razors on and off for the last 25 years or so.I also wrote a review on Norelco Spectra Razors.Recently, I received a Norelco Cool Skin for my Birthday.I have never really enjoyed a wet shave until I got this Razor.Guys, you have got to try this Razor.I'm telling you, this is the absolute best Electric Razor Norelco makes.It does exactly what Norelco says it does: It shaves as close as a blade.This is the closest and best shave that I have ever gotten with a Norelco Electric Razor in nearly 25 years of shaving!!!!!I have a heavy, thick, dark beard and unlike with the Spectra, I don't even get a shadow in the afternoon.I own a Spectra 8894XL Top Of The LineNorelco Electric Razor. Spectra 8894XL can't even come close to giving me the shave that I get with the Cool Skin Electric Razor.The Spectra takes me 7 or 8 minutes to shave and it's still not as close as the Cool Skin and I shave with the Cool Skin in half the time.This Electric Razor really is Blade Close.It does have one con and that is the lotion dispensing system.It does not put out much gel while you are shaving.Its best to use some Edge Shaving Gel with this electric razor to really get a close comfortable shave.I would like to say congatulations to Norelco: You Guys have finally made an electric razor that shaves as close as a blade.In a pinch, I will still use my Spectra 8894XL, but in the mean time I'm sticking with my Cool Skin.It leaves yourface feeling smooth and it really gives you asmooth, close, comfortable shave.Like I said, this is the best shaving electric razor Norelco has ever made.[...]

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product & Great Customer Service
    The 7775x is truly cool - it doesn't irritate or burn sensitive skin when used in the shower.I have mixed feelings about the effectiveness of the dispensible lotion, I use shaving cream and get a close and consistent shave.The 21 day adjustment period is true, and my sensitive neck has cleared up since not using a razor.At the time of this writing, the shaver was so new, the repair center didn't have parts, and Norelco completely replaced the one that broke when it fell off the shelf in the shower.I must comment you must use the plastic strap and hang it on something, because dropping the shaver in the tub is a good chance that a repair/replacement will be required.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best ever
    This shaver is well worth the money. For the past couple of years I used the top of the line Panasonic wet-dry shaver. It was time for a change and my skin is too sensitive for regular dry shavers so I got norelco 7775x. This thing rocks, no cuts, irritation from the the very first shave. The nivea packs are great idea, if you don't like them you can use your own gel/foam. I used it in as well as out of the shower and it works great every day. I highly recommend this shaver to everyone. ... Read more
