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.
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've owned Remington razors for many years. The products have been good, but not outstanding. But, the quality has been low - maybe commensurate of the price. The last two failed because of the rubber boot over the on-off switch fell off. This model has solved that problem. But, it still does not shave close… AND the shaving screen wears out much sooner than my previous Remingtons. And the worst part is that Wal-Mart does NOT have the replacement; so when the screen prematurely fails, you have to buy a whole new razor. I’d make sure that the replacement screens are stocked for the model I’d buy
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.
Having the use of my left hand only, I needed a shaver that was easy to use & clean. This is perfect. I've used both razors & rotary shavers & this one shaves as close. I brush it out every 2 shaves & rinse it every 5. I have no trouble with the pivoting head & the noise is not excessive. I can shave anywhere, anytime. A great shaver for $33 & a two year warranty.
I first bought the triple foil shaver, but returned it after a week. It was too wide and did not get as close a shave as I wanted. I decided to try the thinner dual foil shaver and it had a much better fit to my neck and a closer shave. After a couple weeks I have nothing negative to say, only positive.
I have been very pleased with this Remington product. It has a very comfortable grip, long battery life, clean with tap water, and a very close shave. It did take a few days to get the feel for the razor, but its performance exceeds the top of the line Braun and Panasonics I have used. Great buy!
I like that you can wash the head under running water. You get a close shave with this shaver.
It misses spots, no matter what angle I use it. After 5 minutes, decide to use a regular razor. I tried it 5 times.
Husband says its works on the face, but not on the neck. He asked me to buy a different one.
this reasonably priced razor is one of the smoothest cutting razors I have ever used. I originally have only bought expensive razors and bought this one for the top stubble of the top of my head. It did so good I tried it on my face and it definitely out performed my Nerlco.
Immensely better than the rotary. Blades hold up very well. Be gentle, because the metal screen is very thin. If it tears, you'll tear your skin. Still, it's the closest shave my face has ever enjoyed. My wife likes this shave the best on me. too
Excellent shaver! Lasts one week on a charge, recharges quickly. Gives a close shave.
Shaves the closest and quickest of any electric shaver I’ve owned over the past 35 years I’ve shaved. I’ve alternated between various brands of electric shavers and disposable blade razors over the years in an effort to find the best & most comfortable shaver. This is it so far. The battery life is also the best of any electric shaver I’ve owned as well. I used to skip shaving one day on the weekend whenever possible but not anymore.
The best electric razor I have ever owned. It shaves almost as close as my blade razor and just as quick.
I use to shave with a razor all the time, I would break out rather bad when I would shave my goatie and mustache. I have only used this product for a few weeks now and already I can shave my mustache and goatie without a worry of breaking out. I do not use any shaving gel or any after products either. This is a very good shaver for those of you who have not used one before but would like to try one. I went in to the store and paid $444 for mine, a lil more than advertised online, but worth it in my book.
I enjoy this shaver, but actually it's my first electric so it will take some time to get my face adjusted. At first I thought it was worthless, didn't cut much of anything until I actually READ the instructions and realized you need to use a small circular motion rather than using it like you were shaving with a blade. All in all, seems to be doing very well.
Good shave when you want to go electric.
No complaint's, bought same model 1 1/2 years ago. When that one wears out, I will start using this new one.--------Love it.
My 80 year old father has trouble shaving so I got this to be able to help him. I'm so happy with this razor! It works so much better than my husband's with 3 circular blades. The pop-up trimmer is a great feature. The razor is super easy to clean - just pop off the cap and rinse it out!
