Recommendation for an Electric Shaver?
I've owned two over the past 30 years or so.

A higher end Norelco that eventually just wore out and wouldn't stay shut. A Braun series 5, the power button on it broke. The Norelco lasted about 20 years, the Braun 10.

Any recommendations?

There are a lot of garbage sub $100 made in china razors that aren't any good.

I'm also a little tired of paying $6 a pop for cleaning solution for the Braun.

I've tried different brands and types (both brands that you mentioned, along with others) and the one that works the best for me is Panasonic. It just gives a better, less irritating shave on my face, but of course every face is different.

Forgot to add a downside - replacement blades are stupid expensive...

I'll 2nd Panasonic. Harder to find in stores locally - but worth the wait to order from Amazon or other online.

Panasonic is very good, but after using one for a while I switched back to Norelco. That won't stop me from recommending either one though.

re: Recommendation for an Electric Shaver?
Has anyone tried an electric razor in the past - had it not work for them - and then discover them later (with success)?

I only ask because prior experiments (all 10+ years ago) were terrible. Irritation, not a close shave, etc. They were all rotary.

It seems like a lot of people who rely heavy on electric razors don't shave daily or don't really need a particularly close shave (based on reviews). I do shave daily. I'm guessing they just don't work for me, but I'm curious to see if improvements have made them more viable.

I bought a Braun 7 series couple weeks ago. Real close shave and has a recharge station that also cleans to head. It’s also has a way to adjust how aggressive it is for sensitive skin to tougher skin. The cleaner runs about $5 per container and should last a month or so. I think the razor was $166 on amazon. I would look into this one

I've had a Braun 7 series for a long time, I just replaced the head yesterday.

Would I notice a difference from my 10 year old 3 series? It does give me a little irritation on the neck sometimes.

The 7 can be adjusted for sensitive skin. I set it on aggressive and it doesn’t bother me at all but then I’ve never had an irritation problem. I also have a thin beard- can’t grow one if I never shaved

Have a Panasonic, and have been pleased with it. Works a lot better for me than Norelco ever did.

Probably will get another Panasonic to replace it when the time comes

this place will refurbish your Braun for about $75. I've been meaning to send mine off. LINK

re: Recommendation for an Electric Shaver?
I disliked the older Braun models. My dad got me one for either Christmas or a birthday one year in college. Never shaved that close and seemed like I had to charge it all the time. I got a three head Norelco and later a wet/dry two head one. They worked great at first but wore down quickly and replacement heads were pricey. We were on a fishing trip and borrowed my dads newer braun and it worked great. I’ve had a beard now for several years but I keep a Norelco for cleaning up my neck and it has the pop up trimmer as well. I can generally use that a couple times a week and keep the line neat with it until I get the Wahl out for a full trim.
