I've been using an electric shave for over 30 years. I've tried Remington, Norelco, and Braun, and for the last 20 years, have always used a Braun because the shave was the closest and never any knicks. I have to say that the quality of the shave from this shaver is excellent. It is as closer as any shaver I have used and closer than most. The three pivoting heads are different from what I am used to, but they are easy to get used to and they do a great job. The shaver feels great, it is shaped so it's easy to hold, and easy to shave your adam's apple and chin. The only issue I have with this shaver is the cleaning instructions. It says to clean the shaver after every use by holding the shaver under hot running water for "a few minutes" and to open the three shaver chambers and hold them under hot running water for 30 seconds. Opening the chambers is a little difficult, so to clean the shaver after every use takes at least 3 minutes every time you use it if you follow the instructions. With other electric shavers I have used, I clean them weekly without any problems. But that may be a minor issue for most people. Again, the quality of the shave is excellent and as good as any shaver I have ever used. UPDATED 2014. This shaver totally died. It will no longer charge, operate, do anything. I checked and many people on line have complained that this unit has a design flaw that causes it to "die", the battery fails to charge, and the only thing to do is throw it away. SO I did.
