    Owned and used this product for about a month, works great. The motor doesn't seem to be as loud as one that I previously owned; which by the sound was a little deceiving because, it didn't seem as powerful and moving fast enough to cut the beard. But it works great. Just kept shaving with it every day like the catalog recommends to get my beard accustomed to this new instrument. Sure beats a razor and cream. What I don't understand is, if they can make a product that grows hair by applying it to the scalp why can't they make a liquid hair removal gentle enough to be used on the face and neck.

    I am 75 years old. I have never used a Razor other than the electric Norelco. Thru the years I have owned a few differant models. This is the best and fastest shaving one that I have ever owned. It gives the smothest and most complete shave ever. Obviously, I highly recommended it.

    This is my 3rd Norelco rotary razor over the past 15 years or so. In the past I've stayed in the under $50 range because I couldn't really afford more. But, I shave EVERY day so I thought it was worth it to try a more expensive and hopefully better razor. This is a great shave. Closer than my old 6xxx series, even when new. When I started searching, I wanted to get the Norelco 7340 for $39 (around Christmas-time), but I missed that special price, and kept waiting for it to come around again, but it hasn't. If you're willing to spend the $100, I highly recommend this razor. Amazon was a little cheaper, but I spent the extra money at WalMart so I could easily return it if I wanted to. But I already know I'm keeping it. If you want to go about half the price, based on my research (but I've not used it), get the Norelco 7340 for around $52. Or, if you're lucky, maybe it'll be $39 again.

    I am surprised by all of the rave reviews about the 8240. I have used Norelco razors for over 20 years and this by far has been the worst model yet. First of all there is no way to tell how much time there is remaining the on the battery. Secondly, for being a new razor out of the box it is extremely loud compared to all of the other Norelco razors I have used. Lastly, and worst of all, the blades pull on the hair particularly under the chin and on the neck causing a sharp pain. Talk about getiing a wake up call early in the morning! I went ahead and replaced the razor with the Norelco 8270 that was only $5.00 more. The 8270 has a battery indicator, is much quiter, includes a nice charging stand, and provides a much smoother and closer shave. And the 8270 does not tug and pull at facial hair like the junky 8240 does. My suggestion; go out and buy the 8270 for a few dollars more and you will get a much higher quality razor and a much more comfortable shave.

    I read countless reviews from others before deciding to purchase this model. I'm a woman who knows nothing about mens' razors--electric or manual--so I had to depend on the input of other buyers and their accouns of their experiences (for which I am very grateful, by the way, that people take the time to input that kind of information--it was tremendously helpful!) I admit, I was slightly concerned about some of the negative reviews I read, but I bought it anyway and kept the receipt in case my husband needed to return it. NO NEED! He tells me after shaving that he loves me just a little more, and will love me a little more tomorrow, because his face feels SO wonderful not only afterwards but during the experience as well (and it's a quick process--zip! zip! and he's done!). He's completely satisfied with it in all respects and very happy that he can just clean it by rinsing under hot water--no more dealing with a little "doll" brush with his thick fingers. Believe the positive, respect and dismiss the negative, and get this 8240 [Speed XL] electric razor!

    • A. Mine works great on my neck and I have sensitive skin so I shave at night and it don't bother me and I get a close shave too. I shave up first and then from my ear to the center of my neck for a closer shave and then I do the other side the same way.

    • A. It's junk! Buy a Remington R8. It's 1/2 the price, has 2 blades (Norelco could have 10 blades and it wouldn't be better) and shaves smooth & fast, even on the neck. Best Razor ever owned!!!

    • A. OK. The neck area has always been a problem - whether using blades or electric. I'd say it works about as well as the blades.
