3.0 out of 5 stars Solid performer, fades over time, 25 Mar 2013
This review is from: Braun Series 5 5030s-5 Electric Shaver (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Really impressed with this to begin with. This was a gift for my son for Christmas after I'd been so impressed with the 5040 (see my review of Braun Series 5 5040 Rechargeable Wet and Dry Male Foil Shaver) which is essentially the same product except that you can't use it in the wet.

Assuming you don't want to use it wet, it has all the benefits of its big brother. A smooth and unbelievably close shave. It's quiet, easy to clean, charges quickly, is well made and looks smart. The only downside I've come across is that it's performance drops off quite quickly (after around 3 months) and shaving starts to take a bit longer as you need to go over patches a couple of times to shave them completely. I can only assume that the blades need sharpening or changing, but I would have expected the excellent performance to last a little longer.

Quiet? Maybe if you compare with a bulldozer? :)

Brought this for a present for Christmas 2012, by May 2013 the battery just went dead and the shaver does not charge. I expected it to last a little longer as it is a Braun. Very disappointed. Now trying to contact seller.. unsuccessfully.

I think she meant to type quite instead of quiet if you read into the context. LOL
