bought this one about 4-6 months ago... i love the razor, it works great on the face, and is a great value overall. the big problem comes in when i try to shave below the jaw line... my neck area. i can shave my face and i get it completely smooth, no missed hairs in 30 seconds or less. when i get to the neck, it literally takes me about 10+ minutes to get all the stray hairs it leaves. i could just have an odd neck (haha) but going at them with every angle of the razor, pulling the skin tight as they suggest (actually seems to cut it more in this area when i do the opposite.. sort of loosen the skin up so the hairs stick up more)... it just doesn't want to get all the hairs! it removes about 75% of them on your normal first/second pass, the rest I have to tediously go over and over (and over) until it finally decides to cut them. by the time I get all of them, my neck is razor burned and extremely red/itchy. because of this, i almost want to go back to a traditional razor for the neckline, but then that defeats the whole purpose of getting this razor! any recommendations or suggestions, anyone? if it just cut the neckline as great as it does the face, it would be perfect. love how it catches the hairs. (i got tired of being nagged about stubble in/around the sink!) no more... when you're done, pop the top, tap it a few times to let the stubble fall into the basin of the sink, then wash it and the razor head off. no more mess. If there is no solution to the neckline problem, can anyone recommend a similar (cheap cost) razor that does a much better job on the neckline? I might end up getting a second razor for that purpose alone, because this one just doesn't cut it (literally). despite all of this, i still give it high reviews... in all fairness, it is a quality product and I have had no mechanical problems with it... and this may work great on someone who has a neck with less contour or perhaps anyone without a neck, this would be an idea product.
