Last long time
I haven’t had any issues with my braun water flex. Had 18 months and am looking to replace block and foil. Bought unit for a great price, was afraid it was going to be poor quality but have been impressed thus far.
Yes, I recommend this product !

Bought the wet/dry 5 series 8months ago, the four corners of the foil head has broke open making it impossible to shave. Very poor quality and on closer inspection I would say the engineering is planned this way. Now I have to spend $50 for a new one.....or do I toss it and buy a better shaver?I owned a Braun that lasted me over 10yrs with 1-replacement foil. It seems the company is compromised.I'm NOT taking the bait - I am going to buy a new shaver...will it be a Braun.....???

Okay but not close
I use this razor to start and then finish with a standard 3 blade manual razor. Only way to get a clean shave that lasts for awhile.

good shaver but bad foil- can not last- anoying
The same as Jaap' review. Any S5 foil can not last 2 months.. Thinking to try and other model or simple give up on the Brown 5 shavers. It is interesting that the company tolerates this at all. Purchased all foil and cutter replacements at Wallmart stores. More than 55 CA dollars.

Pleasant shaver, not very durable
"Braun recommends changing your shaver’s foil & cutter block every 18 months" - that's great, but I have yet to use a foil & cutter block that lasts me longer than 3-4 months. I've bought a new Braun WaterFlex razor about 11 months ago and have worn out 4 blocks since. The foil will typically tear at one of the sides, near the end of the foil. The resulting projecting metal is very sharp and can give you some nasty (but superficial) cuts. As my beard is not extremely heavy and I only shave half my face - as I have a goatee and sideburns, I don't think the failure are due to overuse. And as the foils keep breaking in the same spot for all of the blocks, I think it's simply a design flaw. Can't do better than 2/5, sorry. And that's from a life-long Braun shaver user. Sadly, this has been the worst Braun shaver I've owned in my life.
