I've used Braun Series 1 shavers for about 10 years now. This is the third that I have purchased in that time. I have a fairly thick beard, but these simple designs have always been able to cut through it and leave my sensitive skin unblemished. Since I've had such a good run, I was hesitant to upgrade to the new model, but, so far, it shaves both more quickly and closely than my old model. Additionally, the trimmer slides back farther and stays out of my way better than on the old Series 1. There are also now both on and off switches, rather than one on/off switch; hopefully, this will extend the lifetime of the device since it was this switch that stopped working on my old model. I like to stick with what works, and this line of shavers simply work. I'm guessing that some of the other, negative reviews probably came from some inexperienced shavers who don't understand how to shave their own faces (first with the grain, then back against it). I honestly don't know what more to expect out of an electric shaver.
