I received a Wahl 4000 (Paul Harvey) shaver for Christmas and thought I would give the following update. It gives a very close (the closest Ive ever gotten using an electric shaver) and comfortable shave using the close screen that came with it, it also came with screens marked very close and sensitive which I have not tried nor do I see a need to try
battery life is pretty good, about 10 shaves on a full charge
trimmer performance is average although the trimmer ergonomics are very good, I was expecting better since this companys core business is trimmers, not shavers though
build quality is adequate with a 2 year warranty
shaver ergonomics are ok
it comes with a nice charging stand that holds your shaver and keeps is charged as needed, you can also mount the charging stand on the wall if you prefer
its designed to run both cord and cordless as needed
replacement screens and cutters are priced reasonably but Ive only seen them available at Sears and via mail order
the travel pouch it comes with is skimpy
also included a free trimmer that worked well...overall though a thumbs up for this shaver.
