With money being tight, I could not spend much more on a shaver. I still found that more money is money well spent... and here's why - The overall shaving ability is not very good. It does not give that really close shave that Norelco shavers are known for. Expect to go over the same area several times. As a result, battery life (in terms of days) will be reduced and for the time needed to get a decent shave, you might as well use a blade. Also the build quality is clearly made to meet a price point. Sure this is an affordable model, but it's just a little TOO cheaply made. I purchased this to replace a similar priced Remington rotary shaver that was damaged. The Remington shaved much closer and quicker. The Remington had a serious shortcoming of no warning of a low battery combined with not being able to shave while plugged in (this Norelco CAN shave while plugged in). I've owned several Norelco shavers through the decades, and have become loyal to the brand. However this model just isn't up to par unless it's a second shaver for travel, your first shaver or you have a very light beard. Mine is going to be returned to Walmart for something better.
