Nice Solid Electric Shaver,
This review is from: Braun Series 5 5040s-5 Wet & Dry Electric Shaver (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I must admit to being a fan of Braun foil shavers and this one is yet another solid product. The razor itself is pretty big and feels very solidly made. There are only two buttons on the front - a round on/off switch and a slider to fix the foil into place (personally I have never needed to use this function with any shaver I have ever owned). There appear to have been some improvments over my old Braun, the blades sound like they are moving faster (so you can get more of the hairs first time) and waste retention is much better. The shave itself is pretty close and the foil is comfortable. The pop up trimmer on the back works pretty well.
It is a solid piece of kit and feels like it when you are holding it. It is pretty tactile and is covered in soft touch plastic so grip is good whether you are holding it dry or in the shower. The only minor criticism I can give it is that the motor does make it shake slightly when you are using it - just don't grasp it too hard and it is barely noticable.
