It cuts but the foil leaves grey marks on face!
Hi we bought this shaver a found it cuts OK and is cheap but it seems to leave grey marks on my face. So the whiskers get cut but it looks like someone put grey makeup on my face so from a distance it looks like a 3 day growth which is wierd. I have wiped the foil today wwith a microfibre cloth and rinsed the cutter and foil. I will have to see if that corrects it!
great shaver and worth the dollars
I brought this to replace the SOLO and this shaver is excellent and worth the dollars.
I brought it on Ebay and have used it and it works like a dream.
No complaints from me at all
Its like cutting grass with a blunt lawnmower
Wet shaver now, this electric model has nothing in the chamber
Looks the part, seems friendly but has a passive nature to shaving needs.
I have not had any issues charging it, or with any failures but it seems to just not work effectively.
Makes noise, sounds like its working and then you are trying to press it into your face harder to get some results.
Least used shaver in my cupboard
Good present, wont harm anyone
This shaver seemed ok, I owned one of these f3800 dual foil shaver purchased in May now 3rd September and the foil screen requires replacement, a hole in screen. NOT Recommended.
Poor quality - needs foils & cutter every 6 months accordingto the manufacturer
Not a great shaver - even Remington tech dept admitted that - my wife bought this for me in May this year & its the 25/10/17 now & it needed new cutter & foils as they developed a large hole - gotta go over the same area when shaving - multiple times & much of the time have to use the trimmer & then shave again - the only good thing is that Remington gave me new cutter & blades for free
not as good as expected
I bough this shaver because I remembered the one I had when I was young. It had a single foil and was a very good shaver, almost as good as using a blade.
This one however is quite a different article. I have to go over the same area numerous times to make a difference. I feel the holes are so small in the foils that hair does not pass through to be cut. The name on the shaver wore off after a month. Would not buy or recommend this to anyone.
Gives a close shave
I bought this shaver at the Shaver Shop for $29.00 having previously had a Remington cordless shaver with three separate cutting heads, similar to a Phillips Shaver.
With this type of shaver once the foil head breaks you just throw it in the bin and buy a new shaver as the replacement cutting head and foil cost more than the whole shave did in the first place, $35.00
The shaver has good performance and a good battery life. When I recharge I leave it for around 12 hours.
The little cleaning brush like all these cleaning brushes is for too small and to clean the cutting head I use an old tooth brush and a one inch paint brush as well. When cleaning the cutting head you need to hold it firmly otherwise it turns round and comes off complete with it's spring.
The side burn trimmer is extremely sharp and can also be used to trim long facial hair although it will easily cut your skin.
That said it does provide a very close shave and there's no need to waste your money on much more expensive electric shavers.
This is a great shaver!
I formerly had a mains electric Remington which just stopped after about 10 years, so I did some research and found this one at theGood Guys at Castle HIll, and have to say it's better than anything I've used before, and gives such a close shave I hardly ever use a blade razor now
It's battery operated, very sharp teeth, very portable, and for $40 what more can I say :)
