horrible design

like others have mentioned, the new design is painful to use. I have given up shaving my neck with the shaving head and use the trimmer instead. I liked this shaver, dont make me purchase a replacement from your competitors.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Impossible to find replacement heads

Shaver is pretty good, but it is impossible to find replacement heads for the series seven.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Manufacturing change ruined my Braun experience.

I've used Braun shavers my entire adult life (20 years). They have always worked great. When my last braun shaver, after years of faithful service, finally gave up the ghost I upgraded to the series 7.The Series 7 did a great job for a couple of years but then the design on the replacement foil head changed. Before the foils had lots of irregularly shaped holes. The new design has uniform circular holes.I'm not sure if it is the shape of the holes, some other change that also happened with other components to the razor head, or a combination but now my series 7 feels like sandpaper on my skin and it literally takes the better part of an hour of running it over my face to get anywhere near the shave that the old design gave in just a couple of minutes.I managed to find an older razor head still for sale on e-bay and swapped the old and new designs back and forth to compare and it is definitely the new head design that is killing the series 7's performance.Unfortunately after using it for 2 years that last old style replacement head is pretty worn and it looks like I'll have to finally leave Braun to find something that actually works.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Close shave, but pulls

I have had my 790 series razor for several years now. I have replaced the shaver head twice. I never had any problems with the original or first replacement head. However, the latest one I purchased has a tendency to pull almost every time I shave. This is not a pleasant experience. I love the close shave, but am not a fan of the discomfort/pain when it pulls a hair. I shave on a daily basis so this is not a case of going too long between shaves. I have read where Braun has changed the shape of the openings in the foil head and others experience the same problem with the new foil. This has happened right from the start of using the new foil, so it is not a case of it being worn out. While I like the close shave I am considering going back to my Norelco because of the pulling. I would be interested in hearing Braun's response.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Cheap and Painful

This Braun series 3 is the worst razor I've ever purchased. I had switched to Braun almost 20 years ago because of the QUALITY - despite it being more expensive than all the others. This razor will pull and snag constantly, lord forbid you miss one day of shaving. Miss 2 days, you better have a different razor to shave with. Sorry Braun, you left a bad taste in my mouth and I will never purchase another product (even coffee maker) from you again. You will lose many customers by going cheap.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Great shave gone horrible

I'm a 20+ year, loyal Braun shaver. In May I gifted a Series 7 to my recently graduated son as he began his career. He reported horrible shave experience...pulls, requires several passes and still not picking up hairs, etc. Of course I responded with, "give it time for your face to get used to it." Four months later he still hated it. So I gifted him a new block/foil (70s). When he reported no improvement, I gifted him a Norelco...to which his response was, "wow! Wish you had given me this the first time. Dad, you should try this one." Well, I may finally do that. When he visited in November he brought his "old" Braun shaver and both blocks home for me. I tried both blocks in his razor and mine and, sadly, my results were horrible. Worst shave I've had in 20 years. As a rule, I have always bought replacement blocks in pairs. So I pulled out my "new" block and had the same horrible shave. So all in, three "new" blocks...two replacements and one with a new razor. All with horrible results. So very sad. Looks like all good things come to an end. I guess it's hello Norelco for me.

No, I do not recommend this product.

new shaver design is horrible

I have owned my series 7 for about 5 years, typically I have to replace the head every 6 months as it is a pain in the butt to make 6-7 passes in the same spot. Dear Braun, I'm tired of having a sub-par shave, tired of having to replace the shaving head every 6 months, tired of having a irritated face after shaving. I'm going to buy a Arc5 as you have lost me as a return customer.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Product quality has declined drastically.

Have used Braun shavers for at least 25 years. Got a series 7 about two years ago, and out of the box it was the best razor I've ever used. Approximately a year later I bought my first replacement cutter/foil set. Drastically lower quality. The foil hole design changed, reducing the cutting efficiency and comfort. The replacement sets also only last about 9 months. The replacement sets are not cheap, and now it seems like they are impossible to find locally. Sadly, it seems like I will need to research and try another brand.

No, I do not recommend this product.

51S Foil & Cutter replacement not good!

After using the 51S Foil & Cutter replacement for only two months it is dull and not giving a good shave. They are supposed to last for 18 months, but after only 2 it is not giving a good shave. What happened to the Braun quality??

No, I do not recommend this product.
