Only puts out 35 watts of heat, which is barely adequate for its purpose. There isn't any point in having multiple heat settings - you would never use anything but the highest setting.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Effective, but can be dangerous, Oct. 21 2014
Very effective at producing gentle contact heat while using only 50 watts of power, but the temperature does tend to cycle up and down noticeably. The smooth plastic interior cover slides around too easily within the covering blanket, and it can kink up. Mine lasted about 5 years before it suddenly burned a spot hole through the plastic and stopped working (gave me a bit of a burn, and could have been dangerous if it had been unattended).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Works well, but operating costs a concern, Oct. 24 2013
I bought this to replace my end-of-life Remington foil shaver, so I'm evaluating it from the viewpoint of someone long accustomed to using a series of foil shavers. It works well for me, shaving adequately close with both heavy and light growth, and with effective speed. I was a little worried about that at first, because it has a narrower foil head than the Remington, and seems to run slower and quieter so that it feels like it's not shaving with serious power. But it seems to go through the whiskers just as effectively. The trimmer on this model pops up in line with the foils so that they can shave together, a feature I really liked on the Remington for going through a couple of days of heavy growth. The trimmer on the Braun is narrower than the foils and spaced a little further away, so it's not quite as effective, but I still think it's much better than a pop-out trimmer. Battery life is adequate for a week's shaving, at least initially with a new battery. The cleaning system works easily, although you have to allow at least 4 hours for drying after cleaning. It will be pretty expensive to use it regularly with official Braun refills though. I don't know how well the blades and foils will last with this model, and that's always an expensive replacement. I'm also concerned about reports that the pop-up trimmer mechanism is flimsy and an internal plastic part tends to break easily. That's exactly how my last Braun razor died, so they don't seem to have improved in that respect. I'm just being very careful with it!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An elightening and entertaining read, May 20 2010
When I first saw the review of this book in New Scientist, I realized that I knew little about the period in scientific history that it covers. How exactly did astronomers arrive at our current view of the vast universe in the period of a few short decades in the early 20th century? The author does a fine job of covering both the science and the history. The science of astronomy in this period is fortunately not too difficult for the layman to follow, being based mostly on painstaking observation through new and more powerful telescopes, careful calculation, and logical thought. The author is not afraid to jump around a little to present it in an understandable sequence, while not losing the thread of the historical tale. The history is brought alive through the detailed and well-written story of the people and politics of the time. My only minor criticism is that the author sometimes glosses over the science just a little bit too much. I also have to say that I'm not personally a big fan of the writing convention that every key historical character has to be introduced with few paragraphs along the lines of "Johnny was a happy baby, born into a family of sharecroppers in rural Arkansas. His father made a living by polishing wagon wheels at the stable... etc." (I'm exaggerating, but you know what I mean). I don't really need to know those irrelevant childhood details about historical figures if they're not significant to the story. I wish more authors would break away from that writing convention for historical non-fiction.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No problems, May 20 2010
It delivers class 4 speed according to the benchmark test I ran. It's compatible with all the devices I've tried with it. It was on sale the week I bought it from Amazon. No complaints here.
