The Braun Series 5 570cc men's shaver (formerly the Braun 360° Complete 8985cc) is generally well regarded, but falls short compared to other options in terms of features and/or value. Although considerably more expensive, reviewers give an edge in performance to the Braun Series 7 razors, including the Series 7 760cc (*Est. $215), because those razors have a pulsating head that improves shave quality.

The best reviews of the Braun Series 5 570cc men's shaver are found at Amazon.com, where more than 200 owners weigh in on the pros and cons of this model. The Series 5 is also the subject of an ongoing poll at the Electric Shaver page, and it's featured in an Esquire article.

More than 200 owners post comments about the Braun Series 5 570cc (previously known as the Braun 360° Complete 8985cc). Most are happy with their purchases, but some say there are problems with comfort and closeness of shave (especially compared with a manual razor).

2. Electric Shaver Page

Gary Flinn's constantly updated website has more anecdotal information and industry buzz on shavers than any other source. In one poll, the Braun 360° Complete (now the Braun Series 5) ranks fourth. However, very few people participate, and the results might be out of date because the last update seems to have been made in June 2008.

3. Esquire magazine

This brief article recommends shavers in four categories, but each shaver gets only a short comment, with no evidence of testing or criteria for inclusion on this list. The Braun 360° Complete (now the Braun Series 5) is the editors' pick for delivering the closest shave.
