I've been using this product for well over a year and I have to say it is one of the best electric razors I have ever used. It does not tug on my hairs, leave an itchy feeling, or razor burn. Although you may have to run over a few spots a couple times to make sure a hair doesn't slip past, it leaves a remarkably smooth shave. As for the durability of the product, I've dropped it, tossed it, juggled it, and anything you can think of to potentially damage it. But I've always managed to pick it up use it. As for cleaning, all you have to do is open it up and tap the head a couple times and finish by rinsing with water. Easy. Only 5 minutes of my life every day.

Good traveling razor for constant use

I found the R5 rotary razor to be a good, low cost alternative for those of us that spend a lot of time on the go. It's light weight and longevity between charges makes it an ideal razor for thoes of us that are traveling constantly and where abuse from dropped luggage, falls from small countertops and other forms of abuse take place. The R5 does not produce as close of a shave as some of the higher priced models but it does do an adequate job and seems to be a reliable razor under most conditions.

Great Value for Your Dollar

Ergonomically, the shaver feels good to hold in your hand. It's flexible heads allow for a smooth, close shave. I like the fact that you can use tap water to rinse out the shaving head. The digital battery readout and quick charge feature add a nice touch. The online package may have been a Christmas special, but I found the shaver, bundled with a replacement set of cutter heads, for about what you'd pay alone for the shaver. This added value sold me on purchasing this product.

A Good Shave

It took my new razor and my beard several days to equilibrate, i.e., to get used to each other; now, I am very comfortable with it. I like to alternate between safety razor and electric razor shaving to minimize facial irritation caused by constant use of either method. No matter what electric razor I have used, including this one, the safety razor always has the capability of providing a closer shave, by the nature of it's design (blade against the face).

I experienced this shavr when my sister bought it for my father who had had a sroke. It went through his 7 day growth esily! I since bought one for mysel online and am very impressed at the close shave it gives in less time than my old norelco. Plus the digital timer of remaioning battery charge is great- I have been using it 2-3 times weekly for the last 3 weeks with still over 25 inutes of charge left! Buy it.

Bought this as a gift for our 19yr old son.Previously had a norelco which he didnt care for.He has used it a month now and is very happy with it.The speed of the cutting blades is an important factor to considor to eliminate the pulling you get from slower units. Lets see if it lasts longer than a year which is when the norelco died.

Excellent shaver and trimmer for reasonable price

Ever wondered whether the online product you want will be as good as it appears? Well ... look no farther. Remington shaver R5 and the personal trimmer perform above expectations. Quick delivery without charging an arm and leg. I suggest you buy now, before they realize what a bargain they are selling and raise the price.

I love this Remington R5 shaver. It works great and is far less expensive than other brands. I get nearly 3 weeks of shaves per charge (with a rather coarse beard). My only complaint with these razors is the on/off switch has failed over time with my last 2 razors. I would like to see this problem fixed.

It is a good electric razor, but the packages need more.

This is a great razor and using the Shaving powder, it gives a great, pain-free shave. BUT -- Remington should have at least included a cleaning brush and a head cover. The Razor gets really dirty with the powder, but is very hard to clean without either brush or using water.

I have used different electronic razor before but this one has got to be the noisiest... it also hurts when i shaved too. The trimmer, mini screen, and price is excellent.. but i traded this back in for a Philips without the trimmer since its quieter with better shave.

I love the window that tells you how much time you have left for shaving, no guess work. The rotary is one unit when it comes to replace. Easy to handle even though my spouse has a tremor on his hands, razor does a good job, has given me peace of mind I am a caregiver.

I have been using this shaver for a couple of weeks now. It shaves as close as a blade. I dont suffer from irritation, razor burn, or any painfull pulling not cutting of my 62 year old wire like wiskers. I now have a SMILY FACE :) when i shave. Thank You Remington.

The shaver does an adequate job for the price I paid. However, it still gives off a little too much shaver burn. The quality in the manufacturing is just not there. Compared to a Norelco, if you have the extra money buy the Norelco!

This is my second shaver of this type - purchased because I liked the first. I like the non-slip feature, and comfortable grip. The shave is quick , clean and not irritating to the skin. For the price I know of no better shaver.

Purchased 3 weeks ago. Takes about 20 minutes of shaving going over and over the same area to get anything close to a clean shave. Stubble appears in a few hours. Not impressed with this razor at all. I will be returning it.

The head assembly is hinged with 2 small plastic points which did not stand up to a small tumble it had from the sink to the floor in the bathroom. Found the razor to cut well but durability a fail

This is a good product, but doesn't shave as closely as I hoped. The price is great and was delived quickly. I wish it came with a stand and a travel case but otherwise satisfied with the purchase.

It's been difficult to find a razor at a reasonable price that works good and this one does. Removes all the whiskers without having to apply a lot of pressure to the face or neck.

I have tried other shavers, and rotary blades seem to give me the closest shave. I ordered the shaver online and it was quite a bargain,including an extra set of blades.
