    Its OK - Nothing Special

    For the price of this Razor, I was expecting something amazing. It left me very disappointed. It didn't seem to cut very well on my face, and left a lot of hair. I also really liked the idea of having a razor that would clean itself and have a charging base. This didn't have either of those options. I returned this item and will be looking for another razor soon. Thanks!

    At first I liked the HUGE size of the head. But having used it for awhile, it is far to big to keep in medicine cabinet. One nice thing is you can hear as it cuts hair. It would be good for blind people or in low light conditions as you hear whenyour done. Other than that, it takes awhile to get a smooth shave and I seem to get ingrown hairs since using it that I never had before. For the price, I wish I would have picked something else.

    I've used electric shavers since I started shaving. I've always stuck to middle of the road shavers. I decided to spend a little more this time to see if there is any real difference. I have been disappointed with this shaver. My 5 year old $50 shaver works close to the same as this shaver. Pro: Close shave. Con: Repeatedly have to go over certain areas multiple times.

    Still getting used to it. Bought it because it was rated best for bald head however, I don't that is correct for African American hair. Works well on the sided area however in areas around the neck and ears it is limited. Have to make multiple passes which irritates skin and produces bumps, which goes back to the not best for African Americans.

    Came highly recommended, but reviews were on the extremes. Most reviews were good but a few said it left them looking like a stray dog with patches of hair left, and that was my experience. I raked this over my face several times trying to get struggling hairs to no avail. I have done much better with Philips 9 series.

    This shaver works ok. Have to go back and forth a few times to shave clean but it is very close for an electric shaver. It still isnt a blade though. I still have to touch up neck area with a blade anyhow.

    Fell short of expectations

    I expected this shaver to provide a close shave, but it leaves many unshaved patches, especially on the neck, corners of the face, and chin and mustache area. If the manufacturer could contact me, it would be great.

    I bought this thinking that there was a new technology that would make shaving better. I was happy with my old razor but figured I would give this a shot. Alas, this razor is a dud. I scored it average but I was being generous!

    Outcome is not so great as advertised with hairs left here and there. Very ineffective in neck region. Not impressed, avoid.

    Bought it for bf. It cuts well, but doesn’t get as close to how he wanted it. Good product, just not quite what we were looking for.

    It’s just a regular electric razor that’s overpriced, I like my old one better with a smaller that was much cheaper.

    This shaver is very good, a bit bulky. Provides a clean shave.
