I have had several Norelco shavers, and have been happy with them all. I bought this one because they no longer make heads for my old one. So the first question is how long will they make heads for this one? The older Norelco shavers had essentially nothing around the heads. This one has a lot of plastic around the heads, thus making it hard to get to some tight spots and getting next to sideburns without trimming them. The "grill" across the cutters has three types of openings as opposed to one on the older one. It might give a somewhat closer shave than my old shaver, but it pulls if you move it over your face very fast. Slowing down eliminates the pulling. It seems to charge fast compared to my old shaver, so that can be a plus. I have not tried shaving dry, so my comments are with wet shaving. It is physically bigger than my old shaver, as is the charger, both negatives when traveling. The trimmer does a good job. With the pluses and minuses I would say this shaver is OK, but not as good as my old one.
