I am so impressed with the Braun 790cc-4, better shave than from the 5 bladed manual razor that I had been using. Finally a smooth shave! I have been using a blade for the last 25 + years, and was getting tired of all the mess, when I could not find blades for my twin blade Atra (manual razor) I started trying the 3, then 4 and now 5 blade systems. None were any better than the 2 blade, just more $$$. It was time to start looking at electric shavers again, in the past personal experience I had found that foil was better than rotary, The reviews I found on the WEB steered me toward the Braun product line, and choose this shaver.
