I have used Rotary shavers for over 30 years and as my old razor was past its best, I thought it was time for a change. Looking back at the pros and cons for choosing shaver types then as I have quite thick hair which goes in different directions so I should probably have stuck with a Rotary. The Braun shaver came with good reviews but for me, it struggles to pick up the hairs all over my face and particularly the neck areas. The shave takes for ever to complete and I have had to re start wet (bic razors) shaves to get a good job. The battery life is fantastic. I have used the wet shave function but that doesn't really seem to make any difference so why bother? I will be buying another Rotary as soon as I see a good deal.
Gives a good close shave, but will not operate with the lead plugged into a socket, so if the battery runs out halfway through a shave , you cannot plug it in to finish the shave
very good service
