    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
