I can't decide on what new one I want. Anyone have any suggests or good stories on which one gives the closest shave please?

 

Thanks.

Nothing beats a proper razor, that being said, I use Panasonic and I am happy with it.

No time like the present to join the wet-shave master race ;)

None, in reality they all blow chunks, unless you just don't grow real hair on your face

 

Or you can do the manly thing and grow a beard

The Braun series 5 is probably the best I've tried, and you can use it dry/wet which is sometimes helpful. It doesn't shave as close as traditional wet shaving, but after years of wet shaving (both with standard razors and straight / cut throat razors) I prefer the convenience of an electric shaver.

Well I decided on a Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D Electric Razor 1280X/42 http://www.drugstore...03?catid=183776

 

I hope it is good. Otherwise I have a good return policy.

 

From what I read online it gives a very close shave quickly. It is easy to clean too. I use to have a Braun a long while ago but it broke and I didn't really like it. To difficult to clean.

I've tried both types and dislike them for several reasons.  You'll never get as close a shave as with a razor.  It actually takes longer than with a razor, or you hurry and end up with random uneven stray hairs.  It will eventually bite you:  the screen will tear, the battery will get weak and it will eat your face.

agreed,

 

and to say none work at all - you might want to stop buying the $10.00 ones....

Norelco SensoTouch 3D - fast & smooth - $220.00


Growing a beard does not make one manly - it makes one lazy & unkempt.

Who would be bitter about not being able to grow facial hair? I would love it.

I had a Norelco for a long time, but it finally totally died. Loved it though.

 

Luckily, for me, I can't grow a real beard, which is a fact I REALLY love as I totally hate having to shave anyway! Even at 55 years old, I can still go almost 2 weeks without looking to much like a bum!!

 

I remember one time in basic training for the Army, a drill sergeant got all in my face and tried to make me shave 1 lousy little piece of peach fuzz on my chin. He got totally p***ed because he couldn't get it off as it was to soft and just slid under the blade!! Whole squad wound up doing push ups for giggling under their breath at him!! I'll never forget that one!! :)
