I just bought the Braun series 3 shaver only that was sold in my local wal-mart, i did not get the one with the cleaning system because it was 70 bucks more, and i would have to change the cleaning cartridge every 6-8 weeks. anyway, i used to use a Remington rotary electric shaver but it was a cheap model that was giving me some serious razor burn and was missing a lot of whiskers that would grow a little sideways. so i started shopping for electric razors and after some research settled on the Braun series 3 foil shaver. i chose this model because it is the only manufacturer that has "smart foil" which helps capture hair that grows in different directions, also all three blades float independently, so it cuts close without having to push into my skin and turn my neck red, also a big selling point was that the head is washable, so it makes cleanup easier and i know the blades wont dull after being wet. now a little bit about how i shave, i shave my face and my head, this does a GREAT job and i am able to do my face and head in under 5 minutes and it cuts close, i dont have to keep shaving my neck over and over. also i dry shave only, no lotion, no cream, no preshave like lectric shave not even water, dry only, so i cant say how this does on a wet cut. but on a dry cut it is WONDERFUL. the greatest test for me was to put on after shave, after i was done shaving, and there was no burn. with my old rotary shaver i would usually do a "aftershave dance" because of the burn.
