Braun 197s-1 Series 1 Men's Electric Shaver Reviews

Another excellent Braun

I swapped to another maker, when I found the cost of replacing the cutters of my last Braun was the same as replacing the razor. However in use, the foil of that razor wore out unacceptably quickly, allowing the cutters to scrape my skin quite painfully. Since there was no guarantee that replacing the equally pricey foil & cutters would improve things, I went back to Braun. This little razor, though smaller than it's predecessor, is a wonderful relief. My skin sings, instead of glowing red. Shaving is easy, quick and effective, results comfortable and pleasing. I would heartily recommend this shaver. As a tiny footnote, the product could be made easier to use by changing the angle of the long hair trimmer, to cut with the razor parallel to the skin, rather than pointing at it.

Just what i have been looking for to replace my old faithful Braun. I like the spare parts info. Good idea to have it printed on the razor. Great service, speedy delivery. I would recommend Olympic Shaver Centre Ltd to all.

Quick efficient service

Useful advice on phone. Quick turnaround - shaver is what I wanted . It's nice to deal with a specialist supplier and not one of the mega online retailers.
