  • It's okay if you're in a hurry

    Jun 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quicker than shaving with a blade and you won't cut yourself
    Cons: You won't find a close shave with this; the "lift and cut" feature causes you pain if you've let your whiskers grow a couple of days

    Summary: This product was given to me as a gift from my Brother. He learned that my ancient Norelco had, alas, died, so he figured I needed a new one. Bear in mind the old Norelco was about 10-years-old when it gave up the ghost, so I can report that Norelco ... read more

  • Before you buy new blades, read this

    May 7, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quick and easy, last a long time
    Cons: Not for "pencil necks" or other skinny faced people; fairly noisy

    Summary: I've had the same ol' Norelco shaver for at least 10 years, if not longer. If anything, that is a benefit of any of the Norelco products. I've changed the blades in the shaver 1 time, about 3 or 4 years ago. I'm not one to shave every day, I ... read more

  • Built like a tank -- and feels like one drove on you after shaving too.

    Dec 18, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap. Built to last. No batteries to wear out. Comfortable to hold.
    Cons: Shaving hurts. Not a close shave. Hard to clean.

    Summary: I got the Norelco 3405LC several years ago as a gift for Christmas. I had requested this model because it was cheap and, unlike some of my other shavers, didn't have a battery to wear out. The included cord is rather short, so make sure that your ... read more

  • Ride'em Santa! Norelco is a Good Choice!

    Oct 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good price, does fine job, built-in trimmer, light weight
    Cons: not as close a shave as I'd like, no battery operation

    Summary: The Norelco name was one of the first I knew as a child. How? Who can forget those claymation Christmas commercials where Santa was sledding through the snow on a spiffy Norelco razor - on his way to bring one to Dad for the holidays? I ... read more

  • Not As Close As A Blade...But Close Enough

    Dec 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: fast, easy to clean
    Cons: not close shave

    Summary: The manufacturers of electic razors lie to the American public. They all claim that their razor shaves "as close as a blade." To my knowledge, none of them can live up to that advertisement. Keeping this in mind, the Norelco Double Action ... read more

  • Essentially, one of the best

    Oct 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use and clean, closeness that rivals a blade, gentle to the skin, quiet, minimal vibration
    Cons: Single voltage. Not a good choice for frequent travellers to 220 volt countries

    Summary: In the Norelco shaver family, this particular design has stayed in the lineup for years while plainer and fancier models have come and gone. There MUST be a reason. The Norelco Double Action shavers offer a no-nonsense approach to getting a ... read more

  • How Do I Hate Thee?

    Jun 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: price????
    Cons: not for sensitive skin

    Summary: How do I hate thee (this product)? Let me count the pain. It reaches and it pulls too much. It is only for heavy beards. If your beard is light, like mine still is, it leaves your skin feeling scheared. How do I loathe ... read more

  • How Good is "Lift-and-Cut?"

    Mar 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beats normal razor shaving
    Cons: Can't get a close shave

    Summary: I used razors for a couple of years, then quickly shifted to electric razors. Regular razors burn my skin, turning it red and itchy. Further, I just hated to lather up! Conventional shaving just took too long! So I tried Norelco 3405LC and... ... read more

  • Good Buy

    Feb 9, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Comfort and Reliability
    Cons: None

    Summary: I received a Norelco Electric Razor as a Christmas present several years ago. It is truly a must for men who prefer electrics. I myself prefer a traditional razor over an electric. However, the skin irritations were getting to me. Alas, I turned to ... read more

  • It's an Ok razor

    Jan 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap for an electric razor
    Cons: You get what you pay for

    Summary: I got this for Christmas, and so far it gives a so-so shave. After having used it for almost a month now, the quality of the shave is still far inferior to a blade. The big plus to it is that it is fast in the morning, and no knicks. As far as a close ... read more

  • Great for Light Whiskers

    Jan 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great for female legs
    Cons: not good for tough male whiskers

    Summary: If you have a light beard then this is the shavor for you. It is smooth and an easy glide. But if you have one of those thick whiskers (like my husband) then I recommend don't waste your money. I had to clean the shaver twice when he uses it ... read more

  • smooth and easy

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: very good shave
    Cons: be careful near your neck

    Summary: This is a wonderful razor I bought a year ago. It gives a very close shave but at the same time does not hurt your face. Since I had a few pimples a while back, I noticed that unlike a razor, Noreclo does not cut pimples even if you go over the, ... read more

    Pros: close shave,inexpensive
    Cons: none

    Summary: I have used many brands of electric razors and I find that the norelco three head shaving system to be on of the best that I have used.I might go as far as to say it is the best.I have used many of the other brands,braun for one and I find that the ... read more

  • Rugged Norelco

    Dec 21, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clean shaves. Durability
    Cons: Must be careful not to bend little blades when you clean out cut whiskers

    Summary: If you take the Norelco apart and clean it out regularly it'll last awhile and serve you well. I've had a Braun and a Panasonic. The reason I've come around to the Norelco is that it doesn't wear out as fast. The screens on the others are thin and by the ... read more
