4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth irritation-free shave, inaccurate trimmer, 30 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Braun Series 5 5030s-5 Electric Shaver (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My boyfriend tested this shaver.

The positive:
*It caused him no skin irritation whatsoever, and gave a nice quick clean shave, even with longer hair if he hasn't shaved for a few days. He said it was considerably quicker than other shavers he had used.

*It looks pretty smart.

The negative:
* It vibrates A LOT! Not a major problem, but a bit odd.

* Bit bulky and not as slick looking as a lot of shavers on he market these days. Whilst looks aren't everything when it comes to a shaver he said that the bulkiness of it meant that it was a bit more difficult to manoeuvre, especially using his non dominant hand.

* Precision trimmer was difficult to shape anything other than simple blunt sideburns. One side was possible but the other was very difficult to do neatly due to how he had to hold the bulky shaver.

*It has a pretty flimsy case, I wouldn't really even call it a case it's just a drawstring bag. The bag wouldn't be great for taking travelling as it would provide no protection.

*No stand for charging/storage (a bit disappointing considering the price)...He also said that the charger doesn't really attach that securely so feels like it could come out easily. It hasn't yet been a problem but often these things can develop with repeated use.

CONCLUSION: a pretty good shaver if you want a very quick painless shave and have simple sideburns. If not you may need a precision trimmer. Could be particularly handy for those who let a few days go by without shaving, as it was much quicker than other shavers at cutting the longer denser hairs.
