I owned (and still own) two Braun electric shavers before I switched to Gillette razors for about 7 years. Recently I decided to switch back to electrics due to problems with ingrown hairs and irritation. I'd been using my Braun 7505 Syncro for a couple months, and after doing some research decided to upgrade to the Series 7. The first shave was phenomenal- close and comfortable, with no irritation at all. Since then, however, it has gone downhill. The shave, while still comfortable, is no better than the shave from my 10-year-old 7505, and it doesn't last. I shaved at 7 AM yesterday and had noticeable stubble by 3 PM. Also, the self-cleaning system is nice, but it's very loud, especially early in the morning.
I wanted very much to like this shaver, and it does give a comfortable shave, but it is not worth the price. I'm going to return this one and buy a new foil and cutter for my 7505. In this case, newer does not mean better. Save your money.
