Seems to be an all time historical low for this colour, provides a great shave and is a great alternative for those who get razor burn…

thats a pretty big saving. i have always used razors but recently switched over to a cheaper braun ($80 from memory) and it's been good. whats the main reason for the massive jump in price?
Had my Series 7 for over 5 years now without an issue. My 2 cents. Quality (Made in China vs Germany), how close they shave, battery life and just the tech really (Not my thing). It's worth it if you shave often and can afford it as a long term purchase really. Don't know the difference between this and the 7 though.
Same, have had mine for about 7 years, still going strong. The paint is flaking a bit around the head but other than that works great! I just refill the cleaning solution with methylated spirits and a bit of tea tree oil.
honestly you wont be disappointed, I've had mine for a week and I'm converted. Plus I'm a big tech guy so its hard to resist the cool factor
Yeah, the girlfriend wanted me to switch to electric from my old razor. My facial hair can be a bit prickly after a day and using a razor irritates my skin if I shave too regularly. Anyway, will probably take the plunge so she's not adverse to letting my face go near sensitive areas.
Just put in the order and remembered to go through the velocity estore link to ebay so I get velocity points too (unlike my nvidia shield purchase the other night).
Shaver shop have 1/2 price most days i have ever looked.
Anyway, i did the cashback guarantee thing on a series 7 (same motor, frequency etc) as the series 9, i got it in January. The shave is not as good as my 15+ Year old Braun series 8.
I'd have a look at a Philips or Panasonic.
Funny though, the countries with the best shavers are naturally hairless to an extent. (Scandy, German, Japanese). Hell even the Chinese are having a crack.
I agree. The best one I have ever used is the Panasonic ES-LA63. After 6 years daily use, it still runs well. The battery is about 60% left, but I never changed the blades.
I have to buy a foil and cutter every 6 months for the braun.
Never gone the electric shaver path, do they really shave as close as a blade?
Personally for me no it doesn't.
Iv'e got one , yes it can shave as close as a blade ,but I found only if you use it with shaving foam if wet shaving , or using Aramis pre electric lotion if dry shaving.
its impossible to be as close as a razor. the hair has to go through the foil first with the electric where the razor will obviously cut at the skin level.
i was starting to get ingrown hairs after using a razor for ~15 years. figured id try the electric and its been great. super easy to do a quick tidy up while walking around the house
Around the house? ..sounds like you own/need a robot vacuum haha
i have used 7 for nearly 10years and still going strong and i bought 9 2 years ago. 9 shaves faster but hard to cut the newly born hair. have no problem with 7. overall not worth to upgrade from 7 to 9 IMHO.
Especially when you can get the (dry only) series 7 720 for less then half this.
is this really half price? shaver shop stuff are always 1/2 price that the 1/2 price is actually their normal price
It's on sale every few months, now. Good buying at this price
I've been using a Philips rotary for many years as it was better on my coarse beard, closer shave and less irritation for sensitive skin. Philips changed their blade design which were not great at giving a close shave on a 3 day stubble than the original blades and still $80 a pop so decided to buy the Braun or Panasonic. The helpful staff at shaver shop said I'd be replacing the foils more often as they wear off quicker with coarse beards. $80 every 6 months or $80 every two years with Philips. Factor in the ongoing costs guys. Am sticking with my Philips for now. Trim the hair down using the built in trimmer and then shave. Close as a blade for me.
Which model of shaver do you use?
