Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This replaces my previous high-end Braun shaver, so I'll tackle it's performance from both a new and existing user angle.

The series 5 shaver is a grooming product of choice. Unlikely to be the first shaver for many people, it's easy to understand, once used, why there is a price disparity across the range. With a wide head and a really close shaving mechanism, a great shave doesn't take too long. It cuts significantly closer to cheaper models, even from well established brands. You get what you pay for. There are plenty of other features - listed above - that don't need embellishment. You want a close shave, which doesn't damage your skin, then buy this product.

Upgrading from a previous higher end model isn't such a necessity, however the new flexible head does mean shaving delivers a more consistent result (especially around the neck) without the requirement of any facial gymnastics. It makes the experience more natural, more akin to a bladed shave in the manoeuvrings. It's noisier because it's more powerful, otherwise it delivers a similarly great shave. The release for the foil is a little fiddly, however it's a small gripe, not enough to suggest an alternative because of it.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first thing that is noticeable about this shaver is that it is sturdy and easy to hold. This shaver worked very well in both wet and dry conditions (I preferred using it in the shower - but that was my personal choice). It is an improvement on the last Braun I owned (Series 3) which I thought was a very good shaver. The shave quality is excellent, surpassing any electric shaver I have had in the past - I shave every day and I ended up with a smooth shave without having to press the shaver into my skin. Despite regular use, I haven't suffered any skin irritation. The battery appears to be excellent. I have quite a few shaves out of a charge (certainly more than a couple of weeks' worth). The shaver comes with an easy to use trimmer which worked fine. Not sure how long the foils last - from experience of my previous Braun (and to be fair other 'foil' shavers), a replacement can be a significant cost compared to the price of the shaver. A couple of minor points are that the head cover seems to not hold on particularly well and the instruction book covers a number of shavers - which is at first confusing.

The results you get from an Electric shaver can be different to each person, but in my case I found this to be a very good shaver and really useful that it could be used `wet' unlike other electric shavers I have had in the past. This is certainly the most impressive electric shaver I have owned.

This is the second Braun shaver I own and my favourite. It feels very well made and sits nicely in my hand. In use it is very powerful and cuts through even a weekend worth of stubble with little resistance and none of the pain I usually get when using an electric on longer hair. It even copes well with the longer flatter lying hairs which some other electrics miss. Wet mode is good, the head is locked in position allowing a firmer press and less resistance from the foam. The trimmer is quite small but well hidden when not in use and easy to see when you need it. Overall I have had a very good experience whilst using this device.

There are a couple of niggles which have caused me to drop it a star though... It comes with a soft bag, which when combined with the poorly fitting tip cover means that every time I have placed the shaver in the bag the cover has come off and I am lucky that the foils have not become damaged. A pricey replacement if they get damaged. Also there is no stand which means that it takes up quite a bit of space in the bathroom. And finally the downside of it being much more powerful than my previous electrics means that it makes considerably more noise and vibration.

Overall though the most important thing is the quality of shave, and on this I highly recommend this to all.

Verified Purchase
Having used Braun for years (at least 3 models) I thought I'd try something new and bought a Philips Wet & Dry shaver a year ago (Philips AT890/17 AquaTouch Plus Wet & Dry). I often don't shave over the weekend, so figured a wet & dry shaver would be worth a go as I was fed up with nicks and soreness on my Monday morning shave. I also thought that a rotating head design would be worth a try. From day 1 the Philips was incredible smooth and quiet to use BUT wet or dry gave a really poor shave. I persevered for months tried wet and dry modes and a combination, but ultimately ended up finishing off with my 5 year old Braun if I wanted a good close shave.
Last month I finally gave in and reviewed various Braun's and chose the most recent model, with good reviews at a good price which still offered wet & dry.
I have had this razor for nearly 3 weeks and it is outstanding. I have only used in dry mode so far, but it's smooth, very easy to use and most importantly doesn't involve going over the same area to catch stray hairs, it shaves really close 1st time.
Answering a few other reviews, I don't find the razor too heavy, the on/off button position is fine (I haven't turned it off by mistake yet) and the trimmer works fine (unlike the Philips). Only slight niggle is that the power lead doesn't fit tightly into the base so can pull out easily, but I leave it to charge on a shelf when needed so not a real problem.

I have no reservation giving this 5 stars, it gave the best shave I've had in years and probably the best electric shave ever.
