Pros: Close shave.
Cons: We'll see about this self-cleaning thing and buying dopey cartridges.
I'll cut to the chase, I'm in my late 40's and have a fast growing, tough growth. The only way I have been able to get a close shave is to use my electric first (Braun 5422), than finish up with a 4 blade and shave cream. My wife wonders why I refuse to shave on the weekends. I can grow the beginning of a beard in a three day weekend. Been at this for years. I finally smartened up and pored thru Epinions to get a consensus on an electric shaver that gave the closest shave. Just came back from Best Buy with a Panasonic Vortex (ES 7056), charged the sucker up for an hour, and went at it. First shave out of the box and I have as close a shave as I ever got with my old routine. The Braun is now in the trash. I've owned 2 different Braun shavers and they never did the job. I really didn't care about rechargeable, self-cleaning, LED lights, shave in the shower, etc etc. Just give me a close shave, and please do it simply. I think I may be out of the double-shave prison !
