  • Braun 360 Complete (Model 8995) - My Best Electric Shave Yet.

    Dec 20, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very close, comfortable shave, Gillette blades, LCD display.
    Cons: Pricey

    Summary: I’ve been a dedicated electric shaver user since high school having learned at the earliest shaving age that placing a razor sharp blade against my throat first thing in the morning was not a wise decision, me not being a morning person and all. ... read more

  • Design flaw: Braun type ďActivatorĒ 8000 series shavers

    Jan 1, 2011 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Charges quickly. Convenient cleaning system.
    Cons: Premature wear of drive head (resulting in failure of shaver). Noise. Expensive cleaning system refills

    Summary: After having owned Braun shavers since 34 years, I do rate the reliability of any Braun 8000 series shaver as “Poor / not recommended” since a design flaw will make that type of shaver fail in a 2-3 year time period. I discovered the problem ... read more

  • Not worth the money...

    Jun 5, 2010 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Price
    Self cleaning
    Wet/dry
    Cons: Charging/cleaning base constantly shorting-out.Many have problems with this issue...search online.
    Foil replacement quality/cost
    Maintenance costs too high.

    Summary: Let me preface this review by saying this is the second Braun razor I've owned.And it's the last one I will ever own.The first Braun I had didn't last very long, maybe 1-1.5 years before I realized I wasn't getting as close a shave ... read more

  • Good Shaver...but is it worth the price?

    Oct 30, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks nice. Great automatic cleaner. LCD on front of razor is nice.
    Cons: Way overpriced. Not the best electric cutting system. Trimmer seems inadequate for side-burns.

    Summary: I was so excited to get my new razor, I waited 3 days to shave.  Monday came, I was all charged up and ready to go.  Half-way into my shave I wondered if this razor was worth the (approx. 185.00) price tag.The razor cut very ... read more

  • BRAUN 360: Complete(ly) On the Cutting Edge.

    Jun 11, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleaning base, good shave quality, effective on longer beard, price (special)
    Cons: May cut small skin protrusions, restricted head articulation, not as close as wet shave, buzzy

    Summary: Manufacturers of all kinds of shavers face a difficult problem to solve every year: How to improve on such a mature product line and still get customers to toss their old and buy the new. I have been following the Philips/Norelco product line for many ... read more

  • Braun doesn't disappoint

    Apr 13, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cutterblock system, quieter, easy to get parts
    Cons: Cost of cleaning solution (although probably comparable to a blade)

    Summary: This is for the model 8995, and I've had this shave for about 16 months and just replaced the foil and cutter block. I have used foil shavers exclusively for about 20 years and have found this model to be the best yet. The new style cutter is ... read more

  • Impressed

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Engineering, features, clean shave
    Cons: None that I have found at this writing.

    Summary: I have been shaving with blades for the past 30 years and because of my job it's become impractical to lather up every morning. I used my son's Panasonic wet shaver and came away unimpressed and never gave electrics another thought until last week when ... read more

  • Excellent razor

    May 21, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Does an exceptional job shaving your face.
    Cons: Is a big noisy but no worse than other shavers.

    Summary: I think it's important to distinguish between shaves like a blade and having an end product like that of a blade. The 8995 didn't get my tougher hairs on the first pass like a blade, but it did get them after some concentration on the tougher areas. In ... read more

  • Adios Norelco

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Close shave, clean razor each shave, Cool LCD and info.
    Cons: Pricey, Noisy, and Noisy cleaner.

    Summary: I have been using the Braun 8995 for 4 weeks now after switching from my old Norelco, and I love the new Braun. With my old shaver I had to shave with a real razor twice a week because of the areas that it could not get, since using the Braun I have only ... read more

  • Great razor

    Mar 31, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, easy to clean & carry
    Cons: Fluid for cleaning is flammable, strong and costly.

    Summary: I had never been a fan of electric razors. I would get bad irritation and a poorly shaved faced. I tried the Mach 3 non-electric razor and was sold. My wife found out that Macys had these on sale and asked me to try to it. I am thoroughly impressed ... read more

  • Bye bye to my Panasonics.

    Pros: Battery life, build quality, closest shave ever!
    Cons: Absolutely none that Ive found.

    Summary: To preface this, Iíve been using Panasonic electric shavers since I first started shaving. Iíve never used a blade or any other brand. I was sucked in by their mesmerizing speeds and foil designs. So after nicking myself on my 4 yr old (top of the ... read more

  • Best Electric Shaver I've Owned

    Feb 12, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Close shave without razor burn. Good trimmer design.
    Cons: Pricey. Bulky charger w/o folding prongs. Not ergonomically shaped.

    Summary: After forty years as a Remington man, I switched to the Braun 360 and love it. I don't use the wash system, but the shaver itself is excellent. There are two improvements Braun could make to the design. First, the charger should have folding blades ... read more

  • Not perfect, but close!

    Pros: cleaning system great, cuts good, noise is acceptable
    Cons: misses some hairs on neck, cleaning system takes awhile and is a little noisy

    Summary: I owned a Phillips Norelco for years -- i really liked the circular blades, but Phillips doesn't have good product support. I switched to Braun because I read good reviews on epinions for this model and others. Overall, I am very satisfied with this ... read more

  • The best of the electric shavers

    Jul 26, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Gets as close as an electric razor can. Very easy to use.
    Cons: Expensive, as are the cleaning cartridges. Cleaning process is loud.

    Summary: The Braun 360 (model 8995) does NOT shave as close as a blade. However, it provides the closest shave of any electric shaver I've ever used. It does not get the toughest hairs on my neck without several swipes, pushing hard, and even then, it doesn't ... read more

    Pros: Very smooth, close shave. Little effort. Holds a long charge.
    Cons: A little less expensive would have been nice.

    Summary: I have never bothered to write a review for anything before, but this shaver is so good that I just had to make an exception.I`ve been using a Norelco for quite some time and have been reasonably happy. However, when I need a really close shave, I switch ... read more

  • Finally an electrical shaver that works for me

    Rated Show
    Pros: Smooth shave - as close as a regular razor, long battery life
    Cons: Only minor stuff - Need to work a bit hard on corners

    Summary: I have extremely sensitive skin and I used the traditional non-electrical razor which always caused irritation. Tried before the phillips shavers which never worked out for me. Following an attractive promotion (~$150) at comp-u-plus , I got this one. ... read more
