    A close shave

    My razor is an older model (but so is my face), This is the fourteenth (14th) "foil / screen" on this razor, the blades eventually will wear a hole into the screen from the back. This will take about a year if I use this razor every day. That's 365 shaves before the "foil / screen" will allow the vibrating blades close to my skin. After almost 20 years with this razor, I still get a close comfortable shave and the long term use and convenience of having dependable razor which works well more than out ways the cost of buying those disposable razors which you might get two or three uses out of before you dispose of them and have to go buy more. The cost benefit analysis is as follows: 1. No Shaving cream cost. 2. Replacement cost of the "foil / screen" are about one-third the cost of disposable razors (when averaged out over one year excluding Gels, Creams, etc.). 3. The major savings in time and gas involved in going to any store to purchase shaving gel, razors and / or blades. This one Item purchase includes a new set of blades and a new "foil / screen" Everything one would need to start over like the razor was, when it was new.

    Restores original quality of Braun shaver

    Was hesitant to spend $40+ on the replacement cutter and foil, thinking that my Braun was still working fine. Wow, was I wrong. After quite a few years, the old cutter had gradually lost sharpness. Replacement was easy, and I couldn't believe the difference. Restored the original quality of my Braun shaver. If you shave daily, you really should replace the cutter and foil every 18-24 months. I know that I will, going forward.

    I purchased the razor that fits this replacement cutter several years ago for my husband. Every Christmas I give him a new replacement foil cutter to keep his Braun series 5 electric razor in tip top cutting condition. Very happy that Best Buy keeps this replacement part in stock. They always price match so you can get a big savings too if someone else has it on sale.

    I have used this razor and refill cartridge for a few years. It is one of the only razors with a "semi-kinda" close shave. I think every company touting "closest shave" and "no razor burn" should be hung out to dry. This one is one of the only I have found that comes off with hardly any razor burn and a somewhat close shave.

    I have owned a Braun Series 5 for several years. I had a lot of trouble finding the replacement head. I bought the razor at Walmart. They do not carry the replacement head. I looked at Target for it also. I am so glad I tried Best Buy. You are a life saver.

    Not correct head replacement/No refund given

    I was very upset to learn that the item was NOT for my husbands shaver. When we went to the store to exchange it, the store said they wouldn't give any type of refund or credit towards the correct item because it was no longer an item they have on the shelf. Very disappointing

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Have been debating on a new razor or getting a replacement foil and cutter. Researched several replacements and reviews weren't that encouraging but decided to try it anyway. Have had no problems as some have reported. Glad I went with the replacement as it cuts like new without pulling.

    The razor is several years old and aside from these replacement blades getting dull, has been buzzing along without any problems. The blades have been long lasting and reliable. What else can be said about a razor blade..., it doesn't snag and cuts closely.

    After more than the suggested 18 months of use, I decided to purchase the replacement foil and blades. You don't seem to notice how the blades become dull until you replace them. My Series 5 cuts just as well as it did now as the day I purchased it.

    Since my shaver is an early series 5 model the new shaver heads I've been finding in stores are for the new series 5 shavers. This one fits the early series 5 shavers great!

    I bought the new replacement foil for my husband at Best Buy for his birthday. He says it works great, like it was when it was brand new. Big difference in shave quality. The new foil gave him a much closer shave.

    My husband looked all over for this shaver head. Thought he would have to throw away his shaver. Finally saw Best Buy carried it online. Easy purchase, fast delivery, happy hubby.

    Its an excellent replacement for the shaver. After all the part is made for direct replacement for the blade. The reason I can't give it a 5, is because nothing can beat a true blade shaver.

    Was going by these in the store when I remembered I needed a replacement foil cutter for my shaver, so I grabbed. Saw later that I could have gotten this for cheaper somewhere else.

    I always buy my replacement parts for my Braun shaver at Best Buy. They sell the OEM parts which I like. I would highly recommend buying your shaver replacement parts from Best Buy.

    I've had my Braun Series 5 for at least 10 years and its as great today as when I first got it. The replacement foil pack is affordable, lasts for a year and is easy to install.

    I am just happy that it is easy to find these necessary replacement parts, online, at Best Buy because it is hard to find the parts in stores today unlike in the past.
