Very impressed - would recommend
For full transparency, I received a review unit (not from Product Review). I wasn’t asked to review this device outside of their platform, but loved it so decided to anyway.
When unpacking the box, it was obvious care and thought was put into it. The box was sturdy and the bulk of the pack was recyclable which is always a nice touch.
First impression was the machine was very well built. Heavy, but not in an uncomfortable way, but in a “quality” way. Had a more premium feel to my previous trimmer.
Use was just as you’d expect. Wasn’t uncomfor...table, gave a great dry shave, no razor burn or the like. I rarely actually shave and often cut myself if I do, so this was a nice change. The only two things I am not a fan of are: - the instruction manual. It is over simplified and had to read the cartoons a few times to understand what it meant

Close comfortable shave. I'm really impressed
I've been a Philishave user for years but I found my current 7 series (S7310 purchased 1.5 years ago) simply didn't provide a close shave. Yesterday I decided to buy a Braun. It's brilliant in terms of providing a smooth, close shave without any irritation as I have sensitive skin. It charged up quickly, and it's comfortable to use. What I also like is it's easier to clean then the Philishave which has a complicated cutter removal system. The salesperson recommended the Braun on the basis of it's powerful motor. I'm really pleased with my purchase decision.

Why bother? waste of time and money.
I bought this as I was sick of manual razors and I recall my last electric to be awesome (many years ago now).
After researching and reading the reviews, I decided on the more expensive Series 7 model as I wanted a good piece of equipment to travel and know I get a good shave every time. The old statement of you get what you pay for steered me toward the higher price bracket.
After using this, I have found I spend twice as long shaving than I normally would, and still find patches of stubble an hour later. This razor is lucky to be 2 months ol...d and has now become a paperweight on my desk. I thought something must have been faulty after just a week of using this, and after reading such positive reviews prior. So I sent this back for analysis. I was told I need to oil the blades before and after and to use the specialised hygiene solution after every shave. After running the numbers, this shaver will not pay itself back over regular razors EVER! Not cheaper, takes more time and less reliable at getting a close and thorough shave. I have wasted my time and money and returned to manual razors until I can save up for a better electric razor. However, not sure I want to run the risk again after this experience. Best of luck to future purchasers and hope your outcome is much better than mine.

Replaced my old shaver (Braun 8595) that had failed me after 10+ years. This shaver takes about 4x longer to do the same job as my old shaver. Don't buy!

Garbage and waste of money
This would be the worst shaver on the market and terrible product support. After 10-15 minutes of shaving it doesn't even touch the stubble. Tried to return it after 4 weeks of use and was told to buy another foil ???

Rubbish - drops stubble everywhere
This shaver is terrible - makes an absolute mess every time, its bad the first time after cleaning but if you use it again without cleaning - WOW, stubble all over your shirt, the basin and bench. cant walk around while shaving, have to awkwardly lean over the basin to try to catch most of the mess. its clear the way the head fits the body it is a design fault, hard to see how the stubble could be contained, watching it fall in the reflection of the mirror - its like rain. previous shavers never had this problem. The shave quality is not bad, and battery life is good but when the blade is blunt its in the bin, wont bother replacing it.

Very happy with the product, performance and overall purchase
My last Braun electric shaver I had for over 20 years, changed the blades twice, dropped many times, cleaned and lubed once a week (always used "Shaver Guard"), the battery eventually died on it recently (old Ni-cad type) but I could still use it with the cord. It was a basic model when I bought it and on sale, I was surprised how long it lasted, it did the job but sometimes missed areas. Got the series 7 for Xmas, it is a mid range model, again got it on special at 55% off, been using it daily and can't believe the difference in performance, I...suppose they have come along way in 20 years. Shaves my face very quickly and efficiently, no spiky areas or having to go over and over to get my face smooth!! Lithium battery provides long periods between shaving and longevity although I haven't had to charge it yet....quality of the shaver feels top shelf, robust and built to last, nice case comes with it. Very comfortable to use compared to the old one, you can tell it is engineered and built in Germany. Bought from the Shaver Shop, they are always great and easy to deal with, weren't pushy and weren't trying to sell me something I didn't need, just the right one for me. Overall super happy with my new shaver, wouldn't hesitate to recommend this brand or The Shaver Shop to anyone.

Cutting blade is cheap steel
I've persisted with this shaver for far too long. Shaver is generally good but the replacement blades (same on all series 7) feel like a cheaply sharpened knife and are blunt in no time. Even the lady in Shavershop asked my opinion when I forked out $55 for new blades. She said that many men were only getting 3mths of sharpness from blades instead of 18mths. Everything else is good but going to give up on this shaver.

Best shaver I ever had
I used to buy a cheap shaver every 6 months until I decided to go for better quality instead of just price. Ive had this shaver about 3 1/2 years and it still shaves very close today. Im happy to support a company which puts quality first so Im upgrading my shaver to a series 9 although I dont really need to for this one I could continue to use for another few years. Battery has lasted so, so long and still get plenty of use from a full charge. Replacement foil is needed about once every 2 years but Im very happy with that. Really quality shave...r and now I will have both a series 7 and 9 but the series 7 is just too good not to want to continue using it so I will use both. The thing Im finding about Braun is you dont throw out your old model because you upgrade. What happens when you upgrade a Braun product you get left with 2 quality devices. I recently bought a digital thermometer it is awesome. I dont mind paying extra for quality that lasts years instead of cheap stuff that has to be replaced every few months. Years of use of my series 7 and with a series 9 I wont be able to retire the 7 because its just that good. Highly recommended after years of use. Got mine both from Shaver Shop. My series 9 should arrive this week.

Used most days without fail
Have been using this most days before work for about a year now. It has not failed me at all. The battery life is very good. The shave is nice and close without any irritation. It sits well in the hand and is comfortable to use. The price is a little steep for a shaver though.

I am using Braun series 7000 for almost 10 years and I love it
easy to use, reasonable charging time
easy to carry when you are traveling
easy to clean, I bought the first one in 2010 (my brother using that one now) and I have another two of them
The cassette foil needs to replace every 2 years but
Braun recommending 18 months (a little bit expensive) but it depends on your personal usage
just try to buy the genuine one and try use recommended oil to keep it clean and sharp
I tried the newer Model 9000 series and unfortunately did not work for me and I decided to stick to my old one
I am absolutely recommending this shaver

The real deal !
Having been a rotary Philips user for 50 years punctuated by a Remington foil once, I ventured into purchasing a Braun 7893 because the rather nice rotary contour Philips has current generation blades that lose their edge quickly and fail to do a good job below the jaw line.
My new 7893 is like revelation.
It is bulkier and noisier than the Philips however it is the real deal and on the intermediate blue setting I now have NO problem getting a better than reasonable shave below the jaw line and throat.
Further it is easier to clean and the c...

Very close shave and efficient.
I was coming from a Phillip's Speed XL model.
In comparison the Braun is a much closer shave, very close to a razor shave. Its pretty efficient too with fewer pass overs required.
The unit is solidly built and cleans easily, either with water or the included brush. It has variable settings for sensitivity, and also shows the charge level via some LEDs on the front. I read many highly positive reviews on the 7 series German made model and its lived up to the hype.
Wet or dry shaver.

Questions & Answers
The battery on my series 7 beaun will not hold its chage. It is about 10-12 years old. Can i get the battery replaced?
What battery is a used in a 7840 S ?
They use an installed Lithium battery that in my experience will last for years. It is rechargeable and done so through the Clean and Renew unit or the power cord, depending on the model. I have yet to have a battery fail and I generally keep my Braun razors 8-10 years between upgrades.
