Electric Shavers

My Braun 9595 just isn't cutting it any more

Mine is a few years old and was the daddy of the Braun range. Love the clean and renew system (alcohol cleaning) and it was about 180 quid http://www.amazon.co.uk/Braun-9595-P.../dp/B000IWFU3W .

Any suggestions for what is good these days? The latest Braun looks the same and of course even more expensive at about 230

Don't get on with Philips.

Anyone tried Panasonic?

Yes it's got the cleaner and is all factory sealed. The cardboard outer is a little tatty from being moved about though.

I'm still using a blunt old shaver that yanks the hairs out rather than cutting them. I find it more satisfying.

What say 150?

It's this one -

I always use a Panasonic Wet/Dry you can use it in the shower for a really smooth shave.

Used them for 15 years now.

This may sound silly but whats it like using an electric shaver? I've always thought about trying one but because I don't have a clean shave (I usually either leave a bit under the bottom lip, or the chin, or a fine thin beard so wondered if that sort of stuff is possible with a electric shaver?)

After a skin problem that stopped me wet shaving a year ago, I bought the 790 mentioned on here. Being a wet shave man I had my doubts however I was blown away by just how good it was.

I have just started wet shaving again though and it is really nice to be back to that baby smooth finish.

Having said that, I paid 99 for my 790 from Boots as they always seem to have electric shavers on for half price.
