I saw this Braun (Braun Series 5 5070cc-5 Electric Shaver with Cleaning Centre) in the Black Friday deals and bought straight away, and have been really pleased I did. The shave is one of the closest I have had from an Electric Razor, lasts all day and not much less than a wet shave would give. It is comfortable to hold, and whilst there is a little vibration it is considerably less than its predecessor. The 'floating head' design seems to work quite well, and it copes well with both long and short hairs without the 'tugging' some razors (and include my earlier Braun) can give. It also holds its charge very well; at least two weeks or more, and even when the low light comes on there is sufficient for another two or three shaves, whilst recharging is very quick. I shoul add I've now had this razor for nearly a year and despite the toughness of my beard it still seems as sharp as when I got it and does not yet need a replacement head.
Unfortunately there are a couple of downsides to the razor - firstly the long hair trimmer is not a patch on previous ones. It is on the 'reverse' side and needs quite a push to raise it up to working level, which is well above the cutting head. Even so the trimmer is quite small and does not seem particularly efficient either, and I find it difficult to get an even edge when using it.Read more ›
Over the years I've used and reviewed several electric shavers, from the cheaper Remington rotary float head models, Philips, and Braun. by far the best electric shaver I've had was the Braun Series 3 390cc, and now the Series 5 5070cc.
The 5070cc looks good with its gloss and matt black finish, and in your hand feels to be a sturdy, substantial shaver. The shaver charges in the cleaning stand,which you're advised to use after each shave. Personally, from using the series 3, I only clean and recharge once a week as I find you get a much longer life from the cleaning cartridge, but if you want the brand new never been used feel from the unit then charging and cleaning after each use will be best for you and as such it will be best if you find a permanent site for the stand in your bathroom.
Using the shaver is a pleasure, and compared to the cheaper models the difference is clear. It feels powerful when you use it, and it took me around three minutes to get a complete smooth shave. I don't have particularly thick stubble and can get away with needing to shave every other day. I've never used an electric shaver that shaves as close as a wet blade but the 5070cc wasn't far from the same result. Unlike the series 3 shaver which has a static fixed shaver head, the series 5 has a pivoted head which moves through an angle of about 30 degrees and moves to the contours of your face as you shave.
One more consideration is the cleaning cartridges......Read more ›
The shave I get is excellent, the best I've ever had from a Braun actually, and it even gets those annoying neck hairs that my previous shavers would miss. Previously I'd have to use the inbuilt sideburn trimmers to shorten those neck hairs before using the shaver on them - I never have to do this with the 5070cc, in fact the only thing I use the sideburn trimmer for is, you guessed it, trimming sideburns. Braun claim to have developed a way to lift awkward hairs away from the skin for cutting, meaning you don't need to press so hard, and this is probably what catches those neck hairs - but this also means you need to be careful to use a lighter touch with this model, or it is possible to graze yourself and get some shaver burn.Read more ›

Amazing piece of kit, used to have a 3 series which was good too, but the swivel head makes a difference.Published 9 months ago by C. Driver
My wife bought me this for my birthday.
I find it very easy and pleasurable to use, and it gives me a smooth shave.
The cleaning cartridges are too expensive though.
