I was a little weary about purchasing a foil razor as I am used to a normal razor, any way a couple of yrs ago I was given a Philips rotary razor and it was ok still had to use a normal razor though as it did not give a perfect smooth shave. After a short research I came across the Braun series 9 and I thought I must give it a try well I am sure glad I did its better than my rotary razor and oh my word it shaves as close as a normal razor I am in aww its FANTASTIC !!! So for all you sceptics out there give it ago you will not regret it.
Best shaver ive ever had. But if you have tough dense bristles like mine, shave in short controlled strokes against the direction of the bristles. Very very good shaver
After having a 7 series braun, this 9 series shaver is a lot better. I had my 7 series for about 15 years and after replacing the head twice and the stand once, I give myself a little upgrade. It costs a bit more, the head is a lot better. I would recommend this item.
