First off, this razor looks great just sitting on the bathroom counter! I was a little hesitant to try this because it was so elegant looking and thought it would not live up to its looks. I was impressed with the results however.

Charges quickly, the charge indicator display lets you know when it is fully charged. The quick charge and minutes remaining feature is very slick (but you need to have used it for a few full charges for it to 'learn'). Works both wet or dry but I prefer dry. It felt odd at first because it does sort of glide (as advertised) and feels great on the skin. As with all electric razors, it benefits from first washing your face to eliminate oils and allow the hair to stand. If you like gel or foam you can skip that. Runs quietly and sits well in the hand.

I have had various electrics and keep them clean. This has a rather interesting, fold out, process that gives one pause that you could break the head off. After a few cleanings I got the hang of it. You don' have to open it that often as it can be cleaned under the faucet.

I purchased this for my husband last Christmas. He has been using a rechargeable wet/dry for 15+ years and this is by far the worst shave he has ever had! He has to go over his face dozens of times and it still misses spots! Unfortunately, I threw away all the packaging (since it was so expensive, I didn't think it wouldn't work well!) so he is stuck with it!
Now we are shopping for a new one, hopefully one that works!!

    Great timesaver. Definitely saves time in the morning versus wet shaving. I'm please with the performance. These shavers have come a long way and take dramatically less passes than the older models. Keeps the sink clean and saves water, too.

          I really hated to spend over $100 for a razor, but my wife got it for me for Christmas. I was really glad she did. I hope the blades last a long time before needing to be replaced. I hope it is as faithful as the last Norelco razor it replaces.

          This unit performs very, very well... Had other rotary razors, in the past and they did not cut as close as this one. My ingrown hairs have cleared up, since I started using this unit. The new head design doesn't miss longer hairs. Very pleased with the product.

          Expensive, but worth the investment.

                I was expecting more from this expensive shaver. It does not shave as smooth as my old Remington, and it is hard to shave around the edges of my beard.

                  Because of my coarse hair, I don't normally get a very close shave with electric shavers. However, this shaver has done the best job. It does leave me with some irritation but it's a small price to pay for getting a decent shave.

                    Bought this to replace a 5 year old Norelco. Nice shaver, moves easily across all areas of my face. Not a real close shave but fine. Just as the instructons said mine hasn't shown the minutes remaining on the display yet, the instructions say it can take up to 4 full charges for this feature to work. Spend the money and buy yourself a good razor and you won't regret it!
