If you are retiring an 8595 model Braun, you will find some things in this model you may not like as well. Let's start with the strengths. The shave is great--smooth, easy to shave difficult areas like the jawbone and the neck. Cleaning is easy, especially if you are travelling--rinse head under hot water while shaver is on. No more brushes. The battery is Li-ion, which is an improvement over the NIMh in the 8595.

On the downside, the trimmer, which pops out at 90 degrees, works well for trimming sideburns, but not much else. With the 8595, the trimmer was easy to use for trimming the neck between haircuts. This trimmer doesn't work well for that because of the 90 degree angle. The lock on the tilt of the shaving head being located on the shaving head, is not as easy to engage as it was on the 8595 which just requred a quick movement of the thumb on the slide control. The lock on this shaver often takes two hands to engage. Finally the display does not give you as much information as the 8595. There is a series of black squares which turn green as the battery uses up the charge. When there is one square remaining, you have to guess if you can get one more shave or not. The 8595 had a similar display using a battery in which the black disappeared as the battery ran down, this changed to a minute counter at 9 minutes which told you exactly how many minutes you had left. The 8595 would also tell you how long your last shave was so you could determine if you had enough charge for one more shave.

Bottom line: Great shaver with some loss in utility and useful information from previous models and it is a bit clumsier to lock the tilt of the head.

II've had a Braun Pulsonic for several years and have been very satisfied with it, so when needing a new shaver I naturally bought a Braun 7-790. The 7-790 does not shave near as close as the my old pulsonic, even when I have it on the most aggressive setting. Comparing the old pulsonic with the 7-790, it appears the difference is in the foil design. I will return the shaver to Braun and try a differnt brand.

Comments about Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System, 1 ea:

I was new to electric shaver. I ordered top of the line Philips norelco but that shaver is not for me specially for those who has sensitive skin, so ending up returning rotary shaver and got this one.
The first without any irritation you can get the best close shave that you get with manual razor shaving with both direction.

The rotary shaver first time i tried feel good but right after couple of seconds i had irritation skin and neck sensitive area few blood spot. I almost gave up electric razor but then i tried this foil and i am glad that i did.

I am never going back manual razor.

I did recommend to 3 my friends and they all tried and loving it. You can not go wrong with lots of positive reviews.

      I was replacing an old Series 3 Braun, and I'd waited a long time to buy a new one. I bought "the best" Braun I could find, expecting to be impressed, but it really disappointed me. It takes over 20 minutes to shave, and it still doesn't shave close. Will probably return it and try a different brand.

          Thus shaver is all but completely worthless. I have owned it for more than two years and I still find it very difficult to use, One has to go over and over their skin to get a clean shave. Even then, there will be loose hairs galore! All adjustments do not work.
          Plus, alcohol is the first product on the ingredients list which makes it impossible to import, The shipment must go by road in-order to import.

                  I will give 4 stars because this is the 2nd 7series where the trimer broke. I rarely use the trimer but I guess Braun can't get it right (seems simple enough). However, it is the best shaver I've ever owned and I've owned many since 1978. I get the closest shave with the least amount of strokes. I will continue to buy the best of Braun shavers.

                  Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System

                   – A comfortable, smooth shave is just a purchase away thanks to the Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System. A disposeable razor, soap, and water simply aren’t enough when it comes to shaving, and this no-fuss solution can lead to nicks, razor burn, and stubble. Investing in the Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System makes shaving a truly luxurious - not to mention highly effective - experience, one that helps to create the soft, hair-free skin you’ve always wanted.

                  This superior shaver relies on innovative pulsonic technology, which offers 10,000 microvibrations with every stroke to eliminate every last hair on your skin. Flat-lying hair can be particularly tough for razors to capture, but this shaving system’s ActiveLift technology uses an oscillating motion to lift and cut those tough-to-eliminate flat-lying hairs. Yet another impressive feature of this shaving system is OptiFoil, an advanced foil with ergonomically sized holes that can trim hair closely, ensuring the smoothest shave possible.

                  When you want a complete shave, you have to invest in well-designed products that use effective and proven technology. The Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System has a pivoting shaver head as well as floating foils, which make this shaver particularly adept at maneuvering around your facial curves to ensure every inch of skin is treated. You can even personalize the shaver, choosing an extra sensitive or intensive mode for different parts of your face. This feature allows you to make shaving a truly personal experience, one that uniquely suits your skin and face.

                  The Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System features a Clean & Renew System that allows you to clean, charge, and lubricate your shaver with the simple push of one button. It offers both cord and cordless operation, and it takes just one hour to charge - or just 5 minutes for a quick charge. This Braun shaver also features an LCD display, which indicates the battery status and hygiene. The powerful, rechargeable lithium ion battery means that you never have to worry about purchasing new batteries. Simply place the shaver on the charger when you’re not using it, and it will always be ready for use.

                  Over the life of this product, the Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System might shave up to six million hairs. When you purchase this product, you will have everything you need for the perfect shave: a shaver, cleaning unit, cleaning cartridge, travel case, and electric cord. Revolutionize your shaving experience today with the Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System.
