    Buying an electric shaver!?

    Hello.
    I am looking for a good electric shaver. In the old days I used a Philips dry shaver, which I actually liked. I know that there is the eternal "dispute" between Braun and Philips ;-)
    Maybe someone can recommend 1 or 2 good models. Price may also be a bit more expensive, the main thing is that the shave is thorough.

    I have wanted to post this topic. My husband goes through shavers at the rate of at least needing a new one every three months. It does not matter how expensive they are. I have been buying philips norelco. Another things he does is take the shaving heads apart and can’t put them back together. I have become so proficient at putting those pieces back together I could work on the assembly line. I could use some advice on shavers.

    Check The Wirecutter website. They will have a comparison test. I’ve used Norelco most of my life but switched to a Panasonic foil type a few years ago. And why is he going through razors every three months?

    I've always used Norelco and their heads (blades) used to seem to last almost a year. In the last 5 years or so I find I have to change blades every 3-4 months. It seems that ever since the company changed hands the blades (cutters) have gone downhill. I have bought 1/2 dozen new Norelco shavers until I finally figured out it wasn't the shaver but the blades.
    I live to vacation and vacation to live.

    I don't shave regularly with electric shavers. Most of the cheap ones are junk, but I've found that Vivitar is a pretty good shaver both in rotary and standard blade form. I paid $ 10 each for them.

    I'm a razor guy. The last electric shaver I had was a $50 pos. It was a more of a puller outer than a shaver.

    Bill, I've never thought of you as that sharp.

    I think I bought that pos shaver at Kmart. Now that I'm retired I'm not really caring about when I shave. I do need to buy some more razors. I'm running out of the woot off razors I bought a few years ago.
