  • Braun 8585 Electric Shaver: As Good as the Gillette Mach3?

    Mar 14, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Works decently, much improved over older electric shavers, automatic cleaning,
    Cons: Expensive, does not get the job done

    Summary: I hate shaving and that will never change. I do not like the long process of applying shaving cream, shaving, rinsing, and then having to do so again the next day. And the next. And the next. So, I decided to see if there was a way to avoid the daily ... read more

  • Braun 8585: Long-time Braun User Disappointed with Product Durability

    Mar 18, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very close shave, as good as blade for me, without the blood.
    Cons: Automatic cleaning is nice but I could live without it. 2nd failure after six weeks.

    Summary: Upgrading from a Braun 4005 electric shaver after replacement parts became hard to find; the 4005 did not do a good job of cutting long hairs when skipping a day or two of shaving. The 8585 does seem to cut faster and the cutter head has a shearing blade ... read more

  • Very fine shaver

    Feb 11, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very close clean shave without cuts, pain or burn. Automatic cleaning unit included.
    Cons: Each cleaning cartridge is extra money and one lasts about 30 cleanings.

    Summary: I received this as a Christmas present, before this I was using a rotary shaver, I must say this is the nicest shaver I have ever used. I hated shaving because I could never get a nice clean smooth shave. With this I don't have any stubble and my face ... read more

  • Expensive but efficient electric shaver

    Jan 20, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Close, efficient shave. Effective, automatic cleaning
    Cons: Expensive. On-going costs for cleaning solution Charging base durability questionable

    Summary: Having used a cheap Philip's rotary shaver for many years, I decided it was finally time to upgrade. I didn't want to go back to the blade, as I always found the time and fuss of using shaving gel + the risk of nicks to be more than I want to risk when ... read more

  • The Mercedes of Electric Shavers

    Dec 12, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Performance, Styling, Incredible Self-Cleaning Feature, German Quality Construction
    Cons: A little on the large size.

    Summary: First off, I do not copy technical specs and information directly from the manufacturers web-site so if you're looking for that info, best go to the Braun web-site. Personally I don't know anyone who truly loves shaving? About nine months ago I moved ... read more

  • Awesome Electric Shaver!

    Sep 16, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Self-Cleaning Close shave Comfortable Rechargeable
    Cons: Noise level while cleaning Cannot refill spent cleaning cartridges Cleaning fluid cartridges expensive

    Summary: The Braun 8585 Self-Cleaning Electric Shaver is by far the best electric shaver that I have owned! The user manual said that it would take a few shaves before my face/stubble would get use to the 8585. Not the case here! The 8585 was very comfortable ... read more

  • worth every penny

    Jun 17, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Best shave you can get from an electric shaver.
    Cons: One of the most expensive

    Summary: I feel like I have to share my opinion of this shaver. I found other people's reviews to be so helpful when I was trying to find the best electric shaver recently. I previously had a Braun 6520 for years and was very happy with it until the day it ... read more

  • New to electric but impressed.

    Jun 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Close shave. Automatic cleaning. Pretty gentle on skin.
    Cons: Noise, especially the cleaning cycle. Immobility of cleaning station (when full). Refill cartridges required.

    Summary: This is my first electric shaver. I've always used conventional razors (Gillette Sensor and then Mach 3.) I decided to buy an electric shaver because I got sick of shaving everyday and having the razor tear up my face with nasty razor burn. I decided ... read more

    Pros: Pros: None
    Cons: Cons: Chewed my face. Wont shave whiskers close, but removed live skin! See text

    Summary: Cons: Expensive Chewed my face to pieces. Wont shave whiskers close, but removed live skin! Noisy when cleaning, expensive cleaner refills. Cleaner base takes up too much space. I had an older cheaper Braun 5520 shave that worked OK until the ... read more

  • Worse shave I've ever had

    Pros: self cleaning
    Cons: expensive, poor performance

    Summary: This shaver doesn't work on my beard. It leaves enough behind to still need a shave, even with more strokes. ... read more

  • A disappointing experience.

    Mar 23, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: The razor is attractive, is not too loud, and smells nice after cleaning.
    Cons: Poor performance, very loud cleaning, large ugly stand, high cost of cleaning cartridges.

    Summary: I purchased my Braun 8585 shaver 3 months ago, after using a Norelco for 7 years. I'd read numerous reviews touting the merits of the Braun, but I found it to be inferior to my old Norelco in many ways: 1. The quality of the shave is poor. It takes ... read more

  • 8595 (8585 + LCD) works great

    Feb 21, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Excellent shave, cleaner function is great, LCD is informative
    Cons: Long adapter plug, cleaning cycle is quite loud

    Summary: I just received my 8595 the other day. The shaver itself does have a nice feeling, substantial, weight to it. I will not go into details about how the shaver operates since this has been thoroughly covered by other reviewers. I'll just hit the high ... read more

  • Expensive shaver

    Jan 31, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Quick shave and easy to use.
    Cons: Expensive and plastic charging unit cheaply constructed.

    Summary: Shaver was decent but the cleaner refills were expensive as was the shaver. Not as close as regular blade shaver and those refills are getting very over priced. Plastic latch that held shaver down to charge broke after 7 months but since it was a gift ... read more

  • First Electric Shaver tried...Impressed and Satisfied

    Jan 22, 2006 by

    Pros: Works well for an electric shaver. Automatic cleaning station (set and forget).
    Cons: Costly. Expensive to maintain and purchase.

    Summary: I was starting to get ingrown hair around on my neck and moustache area and I needed to do something about it because it was happening all the time from shaving with my razor. I remember reading somewhere that electric razors won't give you ingrown ... read more

  • Better Than Norelco

    Dec 22, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: No irritation and blade close.
    Cons: Takes somewhat longer to shave compared to the blade, perhaps I am being over critical.

    Summary: After over 50 years as a blade shaver, I thought that I would try this old gray beard out on an electric. I had used Norelco a few times over the years for emergencies and was familiar with their product so I purchased one and tried it out for 3 weeks ... read more

  • Love this shaver!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Gives a close shave with irritation. Fast. No blood.
    Cons: Only cost.

    Summary: I have "scraped" by using blades for 35 years and hated shaving. I do not have fond memories of using my father's old electric. Last week I cut myself for the last time! I researched and determined the Braun 8585 was the unit for me. The instructions ... read more

    Pros: Very close shave, Clean unit for every shave, solid feel.
    Cons: Size of the cleaning/recharging base.

    Summary: I asked for and received the 8585 as a gift this year. I have always used an electric razor - first a foil Remington, then I moved to the rotary Norelco and Remington models because they were kinder to my face, and seemed to give me a closer shave. I ... read more
