I purchased this Braun shaver just before Christmas and have been using it since it arrived. It is the best shaver I've owned, and I've had Braun shavers for the last 20 years. The head provides and close and clean shave and the long hair trimmer does the trick. It's more than capable of dealing with a days growth of beard or several days of stubble. The head of the shaver can be set to static or flex which will alter the type of shave you get. All in all it's the smoothest and closes shave I've ever had.
The shaver comes with a carry case and cleaning brush
The cleaning system is great and using it every other day I've only half used the cartridge so far. Once cleaned the shaver has a great fresh lemon scent. The shaver will tell you when it needs cleaning as the yellow light comes on. The cleaning process takes about 5 minutes to complete, however the shaver isn't ready for use until the cleaning light is out. The whole process takes about four hours, so don't start it if you're about to go out. If you don't want to use the cleaning system you can run the unit under a tap to clean the parts. I've yet to try this yet, but I guess it'd be useful if you're away on holiday and don't want to take the base with you.
The shaver can be recharged either in the cleaning station or via the lead (supplied) from the mains into the shaver itself.
The system even tells you when you need to replace the cutter and foil.
Down sides to this Braun. Well, I've yet to find any to be honest!
Overall I'm massively impressed with this product, and would highly recommend it hence the 5 star rating.
