Braun Series 7 790cc Men’s Electric Foil Shaver
The Braun 7 790cc is a member of the Braun series 7 electric razor family for men. With sleek, modern lines and attractive, ergonomic grip, this foil shaver is loaded with Braun special features. The main product Braun is selling is the electric razor. However, this model includes a cleaning system that is quite impressive in its own right.
In this article, we present an overview… of the features of this product, including advantages and disadvantages of the design and what other users are saying about this product. The Braun 7 790cc has two key features: the razor itself that claims to deliver a perfect shave every time and the cleaning system that maintains and sterilizes the razor when not in use. This electric shaver is intended for daily use.
Many manufacturers and users of electric razors state that most men require an adjustment period when moving from one product to another; Braun provides three shaving power levels so you can make this transition as smooth as possible. Thus, it is well suited for beginners, as well as experienced users. The cleaning system and the Braun 7 790cc work together to present a quality foil shaver.
Panasonic Arc5 Electric Razor, Men’s 5-Blade Cordless
If you don’t want to buy a shaver with a cleaning station during the Cyber Monday deals, the Panasonic Arc 5 LV65-S only includes the shaver. There’s no point in going to the expense of buying kit with cleaning station if you don’t want one. This shaver has five blades in its foil-style shaving head, and has a nice sleek appearance.
The front of the shaver has a detailed LED… readout panel to tell you battery time, low battery, and time for maintenance. This shaver also has the fast 14,000 cuts per minute linear motor to provide fast and efficient shaving. This shaver can also discern hair length, so it will automatically speed up or slow down based on length and thickness so you don’t have to keep on pressing the power button up or down.
The blades within the shaver have been precision-honed at a 30 degree angle. The head of this shaver also has Multi-Flex and pivoting ability. It’s cordless, with wet and dry usage. It’s designed with a sleek dark grey look. There is a large circular on/off switch right on the middle that is easy to find. There is also a large LCD panel on the bottom front.
Philips Norelco Shaver 4500 (Model AT830/46)
Philips is a brand that has been known to produce amazing shavers. The Norelco brand is among the most popular electric shavers of today. We will be reviewing the Norelco 4500 (Model AT830/46) model. This model is a cordless and rechargeable shaver that can be used in both wet and dry conditions. It also includes the DualPrecision shaving head.
This DualPrecision shaving head… can trim long hair and even short stubbles easily. Another unique element of this shaver is that it has a rotary style head and not a foil one. The heads have slots as well as holes to snip off hair quickly whether long or short. The design of this shaver is grey and black matte finish with a plastic casing.
The Norelco Shaver is built with a flex, pivot and flute system. This design allows for proper shaving on all the contours of your face. The head of the shaver has the ability to maintain close contact with the skin on your face all the while remaining gentle. This system grabs more hair in just one sweep so you don’t need to worry about going back and forth numerous times over your face and neck.
Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 Electric Razor for Men
You can buy a super affordable electric shaver but still end up with a reliable Japanese-made product that delivers what it promises. The Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 Men’s Electric Shaver can be used wet or dry, and has special “Nanotech” blades that promise a smoother closer shave. Its four blade shaving system promises to be much better than the traditional three blade shaving systems of past years.
If you want to skip the cleaning… and charging stations that are offered with other Panasonic shavers, then the Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 Men’s Electric Shaver will be a better choice for you. If you don’t like just a dry shave, this Panasonic shaver can also be used dry or wet. You can shave your face with water, shaving gels, lotions, and foams, to help you get the closest shave possible.
You can also bring your shaver into the shower with you, if you prefer, as it’s 100% waterproof and fully immersible. If you don’t have as much time to get ready, or want to use the shaver for touch-ups, it still does a great job when used dry. You can toss it into your briefcase if you have a super long day planned, and wish to freshen up between meetings.
Philips Norelco Electric Shaver 3100, S3310/81
The Philips Norelco Shaver 3100 (S3310/81) represents a newer iteration of another popular shaver from the same Series 3000 line, the PT724/46. The Norelco 3100 brings along redesigned shaving heads and a new black color scheme.
Unlike other shavers… where you must slide the switch to gradually lift the trimmer, here you have to slide it downward and the trimmer, being spring loaded, snaps into position perpendicular to the shaver’s body. If I were to nitpick, I would say that the way you hold the razor during use, with your thumb resting over the power button, makes it susceptible to be accidentally pressed. However, this will happen only if you hold it excessively tight.
Upon plugging the shaver in, the battery notification LED blinks intermittently, alternating between green and orange. This signals the fact that the battery is fully drained. After a few minutes the LED will only blink green and continue so until the battery will be completely charged.
Wahl Professional 8061-100 5-star Series Rechargeable
The foil on the head of the device may have to be replaced after a while, but it usually outlasts the manufacturer’s warranty. Luckily, the replacement parts come in at less than $20, which makes the Wahl Professional 8061 5-Star Series Shaver Shaper exceptionally affordable to maintain for casual users as well as professionals. Any defective parts are replaced at no charge by the maker, and Wahl Customer Service was friendly and helpful when we called for more information on the product and warranty.
Panasonic ES-LT41-K Arc3 Wet Dry Electric Razor
The Panasonic ES-LT41-K Arc3 electric shaver provides solid technology for a good price. While this shaver doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles, you can trust the Panasonic name to deliver a good clean shave. This electric shaver is a cordless model, and can be used wet or dry, and has a flexible pivoting head so you can get at all the whiskers on your face. It also has a good grip, so you won’t drop your shaver in the sink, even when you’re half asleep in the morning.
If you want the latest electric shaver,… with all the gadgets, then check out some of the other offerings in the Panasonic product line. But for those who trust the Panasonic name, or wishing to give Panasonic a try, you really can’t go wrong. The Panasonic ES-LT41-K Arc3 comes with an attractive black and silver casing.
This cordless electrical shaver comes with an internal rechargeable battery, so you don’t have to waste regular batteries. There’s also an automatic universal dual voltage (100-240V) adaptor, so you can bring your Panasonic ES-LT41-K Arc3 electric shaver on your trips around the world. Special Japanese technology used to forge swords is recreated here by making the sharpest hardest electric shaver blades ever possible.
Braun Smart Control 190s-1 Electric Foil Shaver for Men
Looking like small mountains; the ribs actually line up nicely with your fingers when you are holding the shaver, providing some much-needed grip. After all, there is nothing worse than dropping your shaver when you are in the middle of giving your beard a good beat down.
This is largely due to the fact… that the trimmer sticks out past the shaving head, giving you a good view of what you are trimming, whether you are detailing your sideburns or trimming your whole beard.
It is worth mentioning that unlike the shaver head, the trimmer cannot be replaced. When the blades finally blunt, you will have to upgrade the entire shaver. For this reason, I would recommend using the trimmer for detailing alone.
