Bought this to replace my old '5' series Braun, and the shave is pretty similar to that. I wouldn't say it's significantly better than my old 5-series, but it's a good razor, just like the 5-series was for so long.
I've tried other brands, such as ones with the circular cutters and I hated them. These Braun ones seem to shave better and don't aggravate my skin like those circular ones did.
Easy to clean, but the shaving/cutter head is way more "complicated" than my old series 5 (more moving parts, etc). I really don't understand what advantage that's supposed to provide (there doesn't seem to be any) but I'll wager it probably makes replacement heads more expensive, unfortunately.
I certainly wouldn't hesitate at buying another one.
