I've used a Braun shaving system the last 6yrs, and it finally fell apart. The shaving quality of the Braun gradually declined after 4yrs as well- even with blade replacements every 9mos, so I was reluctant to purchase another. I wanted to try something new. This Panasonic shaver is "expensive", but like most things in life, you get what you pay for. It's built better, it keeps trimmings inside the shaver rather than spilling out wherever during a shave, and I can shave a 4 day beard clean in under 3 minutes with this shaver, and mine is thick. I could never imagine doing that with my Braun. This product cuts at 14000 revolutions per minute, and that's 4000 revolutions per minute more powerful than the current top of the line Braun! It's quiet, water proof for wet or dry shaving, gels or foams, and it fully charges in an hour for 45min of shaving. It easily cleans under running water with liquid soap as well as having the self-cleaning system available. I do clean the shaver under the faucet before putting it in the self-cleaning system though, but that's just my personal preference to keep the system free of trimmings. Just like automobiles, you get what you pay for. A $500 car will likely get you to work just as well as a $50,000 car, but which one will leave you loving the experience of driving to work with a smile on your face? If you want to enjoy the experience of shaving rather than just having it be a routine you have to do, try this Panasonic out. Otherwise, stick with a Bic.
