$100 Shave for $30!

This is by far the best electric razor I have ever owned! I’ve had electrics in every price range, from $10 travel shavers to my now defunct $100 Norelco Rotary, and this $30 Remington F4790 gives me the closest shave of all. It even does a great job on the neck...not quite as good as a blade, but better than any electric I’ve used. I experienced no irritation with this razor whatsoever, just baby smooth skin and the closest shave every time. If I had to complain about something, it would be that the pivoting head didn’t seem to “pivot” all that much until I put two drops of mineral oil on the hinges. Now it follows the contour of my face and neck. I would also be nice if the F4790 came with some type of case for storage. Tip: Buy this razor online from walmart.com. It costs $40+ in stores and for about $5 more than the store price for the F4790 alone, I got the razor and the replacement blades.

I owned a Remington back in the seventies, then made in the "Homeland", and liked it. Bought a Norelco (in-store) 2 years and oblivious to the return policy, dumped it after two weeks as useless. The Remington F4790 amazed me out of the box. Had a full charge and gave me a first-class shave thanks to a motor about twice as powerful as the Norelco one. Have not cleaned the head in water yet and am somewhat hesitant to do so. I was surprised that the use of pre-shave lotion is NOT encouraged and thus did not use it. Initially there was a bit of burnt feeling which I quickly soothed with face cream. Any longish neckhairs should be trimmed with the sideburn cutter first. The overall quality, including that of the hefty AC plug, is excellent. The only con - just to show my fairness - is the small protective cover over the shave head. It may come off when putting the shaver away after use. No biggie if one is aware of that tendency. The packing box could have contained a small piano but the Walmart service was prompt and the price excellent.

Poor Perfmance

Customer review by Russ2

I could't agree more with previous reviewers with respect to poor cutting perfomance with this razor. I purchased this razor, model F4790, 6 months ago when my old Remington, model MS2-370, started to die. I had the old model for many years, so I was not surprised. You would think that over the years, a product would improve. My old Remington, model MS2-370, performed much better. The very first Remington Microscreen razors were the best. They keep going down hill. Why? I don't know. Fortunately I was able to order my old model Remington, MS2-370, which apparently is no longer made, over the internet. They are still available at a reasonable prices if you search around. I suspect that the people who engineered the new models don't use them. I wish that they would take one home and live with it for a while. Even using a good pre-shave lotion and well lubed screens cutting performace is lousy at best. My advise is to look for and purchase one of the "old" MS models. They are much better.

I purchased this new a few months ago after I unfortunately forgot the recharger to my previous shaver (of another brand) at a hotel just prior to deploying. I should have been willing to pony up the difference in cost and stuck with that brand. This Remington shaver is inexpensive because it is cheaply designed and built. The hair pocket extends too far beyond the foils and the edges are not rounded well enough to prevent it from abrading your face while you shave. The foils are tearing after just 3 months of use; my other brand's foils could easily last over a year, and that was without the plastic protective hood this shaver has. Even prior to the foils becoming torn, my face would feel abused through the rest of the day in a way that I never recall with my other shaver. This shaver does hold a charge well, but that's not enough to give a positive rating. I can't say you should stay away from a Remington shaver, but your should defintely stay away from this model.

BEST shaver

I have owned remington shavers since 1986. This shaver has the closest shave of any. The pivoting head shaved my neck in 1/5th of the usual time. Most razors take multiple attempts to get the neck hairs. I would have never guessed this cost less than $40. If you haven't tried electric razors yet, this is the model to try. AND! If you have tried other models, you won't believe this is not a blade.

  • A. WalMart.com That's where I got mine. Just make sure you are ordering the correct one. Remington's numbering system and some of their product descriptions can be confusing.
