Read reviews of this saying the Series 7 is slightly better, but I figured this was a newer model, so the blades would be more readily available. They're not. The 7 is still supported however. Also, from the gate the shaver isn't the one pictured on the box, which is deceiving. The original model has a battery charge identifier that uses numbers for how much charge you have left. The newer model uses bars to show remaining charge, which seems cheaper to me. This shaver is easy to clean with or without the stand, but the quality of shave isn't the greatest. Neck areas become difficult and it's quite cumbersome to wield. This isnt a beard trimmer btw, so long hair can block up the blade pretty quickly. If you want a great face shaver, for stubble or short hair shaving, then this is fine.
