For the past several years I’ve been using the Braun Series 7 – 790cc, and I must say I have been quite impressed. Even with the release of the newer Braun Series 9, I still recommend the Series 7 to most people. I like the design, the cleaning system is very convenient, and of course the actual shaving experience is completely satisfying.
There are 4 types of cleaning modes. I have found that a normal shave will just require a light cleaning session. If you have a few days worth of growth then it may require a medium or a more thorough clean. These 3 cleaning sessions take 30 to 40 minutes to run through. There is also a quick clean feature which cleans the unit in 25 seconds.
The Clean and Renew liquid packs are usually sold in a set of 3 for 15 dollars. So that’s an added cost of 5 dollars per month, or 60 dollars per year. Personally I’m happy to pay 5 dollars a month to have the razor cleaned and sterilized after each use. I see it as a luxury cost. Once the Clean and Renew liquid is setup inside the shaving base, after about 8 weeks whether you use it or not, some liquid may evaporate.
If you’re not going to use the cleaning base regularly, or if you’re traveling, you’re going to need to clean it manually. This is the one and only downfall to this system, the shaving foils and blades are in one unit, making a manually clean not as easy as other models. This is why the cleaning station is a bit of a necessity.
The Pulsonic technology with this razor refers to the 10,000 microvibrations per minute that are generated from the shaving head. This, along with the Power-Comb technology helps lift hairs off your face for easy shaving. This combination really helps you get a very smooth shave.
Lastly there are different speed settings. I have always used to the highest setting but if your facial hair isn’t very thick or you have quite sensitive skin, you might want to start with the lower settings. Prior to using this model I was using a disposable razor for about a month and making the switch was completely fine.

I was very happy with the smoothness of my cheeks, lip and chin area. I think the Braun did a good job on my neck as well. Although it may not have been as close as a razor on my neck, I haven’t experienced any irritation. Usually with a razor I’ll have some sort of irritation once and awhile. So overall I had a great experience. If you’re looking for a close shave with the luxury of a cleaning station then I would definitely recommend this product.
