Breaking it down

Performance

A quick, clean shave for just about everybody. The Braun Series 7 delivers a close, comfortable shave. A flexible foil head contours to tricky areas, and three shaving settings accommodate different skin and hair types. Most reviewers say the Series 7 works equally well on sensitive skin and tough, coarse beards, even if your beard hair grows in different directions. Users also add that this shaver has no problem dealing quickly with several days' worth of beard growth. The Braun Series 7's pop-up trimmer is shorter than on some earlier models and sticks out from the shaver body at a 90 degree angle, which takes some getting used to. However, once users do get used to it, many see the trimmer design as an improvement.

Ease of use

Feels good in your hand. Users say that the slim body of the Braun Series 7 feels great in your hand. There's also a rubberized covering that helps maintain a secure grip. The cleaning base for the Series 7 is said to work very well; just drop the shaver into the base, shaving foils down. The Series 7 will run for 50 minutes on a full charge. It also offers a five-minute quick-charge feature that will power the shaver sufficiently for one shave. The Braun shaver has LED indicators that tell you the battery and hygiene levels, and when the foils need replacement.

Noise

In the ear of the beholder. Expert tests show the Series 7's sound level to be on a par with other foil shavers, and models in the series generally fare well in that regard in testing by ConsumerReports.org, earning scores of Very Good. Users don't always agree, however, and TheSweethome.com notes that noise is one of the most common complaints users voice about Braun Series 7 shavers.

Warranty/durability

Standard warranty, great exchange period. The Braun Series 7 comes with an industry-standard two-year warranty and a longer-than-usual 60-day money-back guarantee. Users generally say that they are happy with this shaver's quality and durability.
