Popular Deal. Joined Aug L4: Don't have Amazon Prime? If you're not a student, there's also a free 1-Month Amazon Prime trial available. This comment has been rated as unhelpful by Slickdeals users. I've been after this shaver for months but didn't want to pay the higher price tag. Dropped it in my alerts and now I've got one on the way, thanks! Helpful Comment? The lowest I've seen in a very very long time.
Close to 5 star reviews can't be wrong. Braun Series 7- cc Pulsonic Shaver System from amazon [ amazon. Such a good deal. Actually debated picking up another, just in case. Great razor, I get my refills from ccrrefills. Much cheaper and last just as long. Finally finished one packet right at a year, but have a new cartridge still,so should last another month and a half.
Fantastic shaver. The Braun and Panasonic are about equal. Zero redness even in the more sensitive spots jaw line and neck. The 3D left me with some red spots on my neck. Nothing severe, but it is clearly a notch below the others on the comfort meter. Wet shave - this is limited to just the Panasonic and the 3D. I'm not a big fan of wet shaving, but both of these do a very good job. The Panny works best with a very thin layer of gel-type cream; the 3D works best with a heavier lather I got good results with Edge.
Both provided close shaves, with the Panny a bit more gentle than the 3D. But, the 3D did a better job on the neck and jaw line. Just tried the new Remington Alphagel shaving cream and that works very well with both the Panny and the Norelco. The scent is a bit heavy menthol but the no-foam consistency is a perfect match for a wet electric shave.
Much better than any other shave cream I've tried. I reviewed the Alphagel if you want more info. Maneuverability - this is where the Braun really shines for me. I have a mustache, and edging it with the Braun is a piece of cake. The 3D takes some practice, but it can do a decent job. Auto cleaning - I love the cleaning station from Braun. Works well, cleans well, and the razor comes out lemony-fresh. The Panasonic cleaning station is OK, but is louder, takes longer, and the water-based cleaning solution is not as effective.
I can't comment on the 3D station since the model I bought didn't come with it.
Manual cleaning - both the Panasonic and 3D are very easy to clean manually. They actually don't need the auto cleaning station although it is handy for storage for the Panny.
The cutters are removable from the 3D unlike the Arcitec models for extra cleaning every so often. The Braun can be cleaned with water, but it's hard to get it very clean since the cutter block is a single unit. Lots more that I could say about these razors, but this review is already way too long.
If I had to pick just one, I'd go with the Braun.
While not perfect, it excels in several areas and feels the best. It also offers three settings gentle, normal and intensive that vary the speed of the cutters, a feature the other two lack. I find that very helpful. Plus, replacement heads are easily available and often discounted as are the cleaning cartridges. But, the 3D and the Panasonic are also very good shavers and will get the job done. If you are willing to spend the money, any one of these would be a good choice. I have the Braun cc-4 since I was able to get it at a fantastic price on another site - sorry Amazon! But, under normal pricing situations, the is cheaper and a better value.
They work the same, with the differences limited to color of the razor, type of read-out on the handle, and the fact that the lacks the "quick clean" feature in the cleaning station. None of these are really significant, so if you go with the Braun, pick the one that is cheaper.
But, you have to learn how to use an electric razor properly to get a good shave. Some quick tips: If the heads are getting warm or hot, you're pressing too hard. Happy shaving! Thought I'd post an update after 1. No complaints at all - works as good as the day I bought it. I'm also pleased to report that I have not yet had to replace the foil. Although I have several shavers, this remains my favorite, and I have yet to find another shaver that provides the same blend of solid build quality, ease of use, and outstanding shaving performance.
It's still a 5-star razor in my book.
Still working like a champ! Zero problems with functionality; fit and finish still looks very nice. I did end up replacing the head a couple of months ago, and it was surprising how much of a difference that made. I didn't really notice the foil and blades wearing since it occurs so slowly, but really noticed the improvement with the new head. I'm not going to wait so long to replace the head next time. Humming along without a problem. I did find that the head can be cleaned very well if I use an ultrasonic cleaner. Not nearly as quick and easy as using the cleaning station, but if you find yourself without any cleaning cartridges as I did , an ultrasonic cleaner gets the head very clean.
That method of cleaning does not add lubrication as the Braun cleaning fluid does, so I give it a quick spray with Norelco shaver spray after an ultrasonic cleaning. Zero problems to report. Getting some wear on the silver parts and the handle has taken a ding or three due to getting knocked about while traveling, but the shaver continues to put in a good day's work without complaint. I have to give the edge to that as my current favorite. If your wallet doesn't complain about the price of the Panny ES, it's well worth considering along with the Braun 7 series.
I am now Every 2or3 years for all of my adult life I have purchased the latest top of the line Norelco on the market. Way back many years I did buy a couple of other brands to check them out, but they always seemed like they were yanking the hairs out one by one , so I always stuck to Norelco. The last couple of Norelcos that I have had didn't seem to be better than the last. After doing lots of online research, and reading Conumer Reports I decided to try the cc Braun. I was very skeptacle, but what the hey, you've got to try something different once in a while.
I have been astounded at the difference. When people wrote that they got a shave as close as a blade, I fgured they were just rationalizing their purchaces. Well, they weren't. The shave is remarkable. It is quick,confortable and amazingly close. There are some negatives. The cleaning-charging system seems a little funky and the travel case is very flimsy compared with the Norelco. Other than those couple of minor details I really believe this is going to one of my best puchases ever. One other thing. This is the first product evaluation I have ever done, so i hope this isn't too long and has been helpful.
I've used a large number of shavers over the years In general the Norelco and Remington I would describe as ordinary. They get the job done with more time, louder, and tend to be rougher on my skin in general. The Panasonic has a good feel to it and a definite step up from the ordinary brands, but is a little unusual, heavy, and a little cumbersome with the huge head.
When I got the Braun complete, on first use I was very surprised about how it clearly was so far above the rest, zipping through a shave in a smooth way and having a fit and finish that was very high end. The Clean and Renew is no joke and gives a crisp fresh feel every time and is really not very expensive when taken in context. I dropped my and broke the on off slider, so time for a new shaver Braun was so much better in the past, how could I not buy it?
I don't believe in spending the extra bucks on luggage, watches, and various other stuff Same thing when getting higher model Brauns So I got the 7 - I put in the cartridge, charged it and tried it out.. It shaves in an almost surgical instrument kind of way. I've seen crackpot ideas like refilling them with seabreeze dumb as you aren't putting the right cleaner lubricant on your expensive shaver and it barely saves any money. BS, this thing definitely gives a better shave than I ever got with a blade with a lot less mess or time and no cuts ever.
Reasons I'm glad I broke my complete if I had known these, I would have just bought the anyway - the fit and finish of the is very very high See all 1, reviews. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime.
