    good for a wet shave, trimmer not so great

    The Braun Series 5 shaver does a great job as a wet shaver. I tried it as a dry shaver, but it left my face feeling razor burned and not that smooth. I tried it as a wet shave with a gel shaving cream and my face felt much smoother and less irritated. However, I think that the initial irritation may have been during the first week of use (every other day) and previous experience tells me that this is an adjustment period for my skin anyway, so I may give the dry shave another try now that my face has transitioned from a razor to an electric shaver. As happy as I am with the wet shave, the trimmer on this model is not that great. It appears too narrow to do anything more than minor sideburn sculpting whereas another trimmer not much wider than the Braun can do better at trimming the back of the neck. Also the trimmer does not appear to be as sharp...feels like I have to press harder than I should to get any trimming done. Other than the trimmer, this is a great shaver.

    Shopping for a new razor and had the classic trouble deciding. I live in the cold Chicago, I've owned both Braun and Panasonic in the past and my loyalty leans toward Braun. 1st shave did not disappoint! Pivoting head was fantastic and after 2 passes I felt like it got as close as my Mach 3 without the irritation/burn. Razor is also very solid and I feel like I got the quality I paid for. 12 hours after second shave and I was still impressed. Minor scruff and totally manageable with very little razor burn or irritation. Highly recommended razor Well done Braun, I no longer consider Panasonic competition. Seller "Always Open" delivered as promised packaged well and arrived prompt.

    I've been a life long Norelco Triple Header fan for the last 30 years. Since their replacement blades have declined in quality over the last couple of years, I decided to try Braun. Even though it's the candy bar design, it shaves closer than my Triple Header ever did. One button disassembly to rinse clean. Totally happy. I've been using it for 2 months.

    I have been a shave cream and razor guy my entire life. I saw reviews on this shaver and decided to give it a try. It really works well! I love the fact you can use it either dry or wet with shave cream - that tends to give me the closest shave. It holds a charge well and would be a great investment if you are looking to try out an electric razor.

    My Remington got old and I figured I would spring for a luxury shaver, a Braun. The new shaver does have a strong motor and some nice features and ergonomics but, to be honest, my old Remington with its thrice replaced foils and blades, dull and worn out; shaved closer and quicker than this new expensive model. My two stars are generous.

    I bought this because it was on a Flash sale and seemed like a great buy for the money. I have been using it for about a month now and have been very impressed with the performance of this shaver (dry) and how close/smooth of a shave I get. Really happy with purchase so far.

    I purchased this razor after using another Japanese brand for several years. I am very impressed by how closely it shaves, the strength of the motor and battery life. An occasional wash under the faucet cleans the heads well. A happy camper

    Does a good job of shaving. A few contours of my face make it difficult for most razors and this model does a fair job in those areas as well. But for 90% of my face it gives a close shave. Good shave for the price.

    I like the pivoting head and wet-dry features, and it's easy to care for. The shave is okay, but should be better for the price: my $39.00 Norelco gave as good a shave and held a charge better.

    My husband says it’s the best shaver he’s ever owned...on the first charge, he shaved 7 times and it never lost power. Extremely close shave with no nicks or problems

    This shaver replaces my previous Braun shaver which lasted 12 yrs. and could not longer hold a charge. This new Series 5 works awesome and I would never use any other brand shaver.

    Very efficient razor which does the job with only one or two passes over the area. Comfortable to hold and has a non-slip surface (I dropped my previous razor into the sink and it broke).

    My only complaint is that a charging stand was not included with the purchase. The shaver has to lay on the counter during charging. Doesn't provide a neat and orderly appearance.

    I have been avoiding this style razor for years, but the N company finally screwed up their product with too many sensors and bad programming. Bought this and am quite pleased.

    Leaves skin very smooth and gets close to the skin. Only downside was after first use had issue with bumping but adjusted shaver. Been fine ever since. Worth the money.

    The shaver head is comfortable to use and powerful! The battery has a great run time per charge. The beard trimmer is a little on the smaller side, but works well.

    It takes a long time to get used to shaving with an electric razor but once you get used to it there's nothing better and a foil razor is better than rotary

    THis is the first foil shaver I've owned and was not impressed at all. Felt like it doesn't cut very well and not as close ofna shave as some say.
