Let me first say that I love Braun razors. I had a Flex XP for at least 8 years before this one. Just recently the foil on the XP had developed a small tear and the cutter had lost a blade so I figured I might as well get a new razor. For all of those at least 8 years I never replaced the foil or the cutter once... and I'm not making that up. I'm sure Braun hates me, but at least I thought their products are so good I bought another. The 550c is made in Germany and it has all the quality you would expect from a German made product. I bought a 300 series razor a couple of days before this one, but I found it that it could not be used with the cord, so I took it back. Also, it was made in China, but I have to admit, the quality of it looked good. As for the 550c, it's light, quiet and gives a close shave. I just hope it gives me at least some of the longevity that my old Flex XP did. So, if you are willing to spend a little extra for a superior shaver, Walmart currently has them at the best price.
