I have been an avid fan of Braun shavers for over 5 years. This Model 570 is, by far, the best razor I've used to date. It's quiet. Provides an incredibly close, comfortable, shave. And is an incredible value for the dollar. You can clean it daily with hot water or use the automatic cleaning system, which also charges the razor. I know all of that sounds like a cheap commercial. But, it's true. If you want a solid electric razor, this is the one.

Let me first say that I love Braun razors. I had a Flex XP for at least 8 years before this one. Just recently the foil on the XP had developed a small tear and the cutter had lost a blade so I figured I might as well get a new razor. For all of those at least 8 years I never replaced the foil or the cutter once... and I'm not making that up. I'm sure Braun hates me, but at least I thought their products are so good I bought another. The 550c is made in Germany and it has all the quality you would expect from a German made product. I bought a 300 series razor a couple of days before this one, but I found it that it could not be used with the cord, so I took it back. Also, it was made in China, but I have to admit, the quality of it looked good. As for the 550c, it's light, quiet and gives a close shave. I just hope it gives me at least some of the longevity that my old Flex XP did. So, if you are willing to spend a little extra for a superior shaver, Walmart currently has them at the best price.

Series 5 Works For Me!

Customer review by SirDAB

Reading Series 7 reviews and using a previous shaver (Panasonic dry/wet type) left me with some concern about inconsistency (shaving and Series 7 cost). Before my Series 5 purchase, I was using a Gillette Fusion Power which frustrated me buying blades. Besides, I tended to nick myself on occasion along with razor bumps. BTW: Use a pre-electric shave. Started down the path of purchasing a Series 7 but couldn't rationalize the expense reading others feedback. I settled on a Series 5 due to more positive reviews overall relative to cost and shaver satisfaction. I'm in my 2nd week of usage, I've been more than pleased with the Series 5's shaving closeness. My first shave felt near perfect. Love the thought that it gets better after about three weeks of usage. I recommend trying the Series 5. I'm afraid that Series 7 expectations would've been too high to meet due to the higher cost of the shaver. BTW: My challenge is realizing when I'm finished. I believe I'm taking too long to do the shave. That's me coming from blades.

Purchased for my husband for his birthday. This was bought to replace a seven year old Braun shaver. My husband is very happy with it. This shaver provides a closer, finer and more comfortable shave than the old one. It also seems to be less messy than the old model. The cleaning system is not cheap to maintain. I didn't like the fact that the same product off the shelf at our local Walmart was $50 more than the online price.

Braun 5 series are the Best shavers on the market

I have a Norelco from the late 70s and it finally got dull. I could buy new cutting heads for my old Norelco, but decided to buy a new shaver. I bought a new Norelco and it pulled my facial whiskers so bad, I took it back and bought a more expensive Norelco. This one had no power and also pulled my whiskers so I took that one back. I started reading all the reviews I could find on electric shavers. Ninety percent of the reviews all pointed toward Braun as the best electric shaver. I wasn't sure which model I wanted so I purchased two of the 3 series, one 550 and the 790. The 3 series was much better than the Norelco. When I shaved every day the 3 series was OK but didn't totally impress me. If I let my beard go a couple of days the 350 felt rough. It didn't pull my hair like the Norelco but it did not feel real smooth. I did not like the 790 at all and took that back. I did not like the intense vibration from the 790s micro vibrating heads. I tried the 550 and loved this model. I have a tough beard and I can let it go for three days, start shaving with the 550 and no pull. I have not used any electric shave lotion -- just shave dry. My face is smooth because the 550 shaver works great. The pop up trimmer works very well too. THE BRAUN 5 SERIES ARE MY CHOICE. I ordered it through Walmart.com because they have the best price and return policy (if anything should go wrong). My uncle has a Remington shaver and absolutely hates it. I let him try my Braun and he was so impressed he is ordering a Bruan 550 for himself.

  • A. There are 3 settings for how freely the floating head moves back and forth over uneven places on the face. The tightest setting gives me more control and therefore better closeness. This setting is black on black (should be white) on the right side just below the shave head.

  • A. I would not say you can adjust for closeness but the shaver does have 3 adjustments to lock the head in different positions. You choose the full lock, half lock, or no lock depending on which feels best for you. The lock is for shaving under your nose or in hard to reach areas but you could use it locked for your entire face if you like that feeling. The shaver already shaves so close it feels better than when I shaved with shaving cream and safety razor.

  • A. The 2 refills are the cleaning solution cartridges that you put in the cleaning station. This is a nice bonus, because they only last about a month or so (with daily use) and cost about $5 each.

  • A. 2 refills of the cleaning solution that you use to clean the shaving head. Frankly, I haven't even used them at all yet...I guess I'm just "old school" & use a brush to clean it each time. I'm sure the solution would be EASIER, but it gets costly replacing it every month or so, ordering the refills. I'll eventually try the ones I got & see if I get hooked using them, if they do a good job.
