I had a Braun 9 series which was excellent but I needed a spare one and have bought the current 5 series and it has proved to be fantastic. Easy shave and easy clean is the best description for this product.
Totally unsuitable for travel. 'Easy clean' is the claim. Yes, filling the shaving head with water. Try packing away dribbling shaver in case with clothes. You cannot properly dry it out even when the cutter and foil sealed unit is unclipped from battery. That also means you can have no idea in what state the hidden blades are. Not good, if going by all the after-shave debris still around battery top after said water-washing. On positive side: gives a lovely smooth shave and quieter in operation than the old series 5 model.
