Rated 5 out of 5 by Chet1 Incredible Shaver at a Great Price!
I have been shaving with the Norelco Speed XL series type for many, many years and just made the change to the 5000 series. I was reluctant to change but it was time to move up to a more efficient shaver. The first month was a tough one because my face needed to get use to the new shaving design and now I wouldn't part with it! The shave is close, the power boost is extraordinary and the cleaning is so easy. Battery life is great - I use to run out of a charge when shaving with the Speed XL - not any more. There is energy to spare after each shave. I highly recommend this shaver and if you have a heavy beard like mine give it a month to adapt. You won't be sorry :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by bonnemi1 Poor to Average shave
Shaving not as close as my 20 year old Norelco. Harder to get a good shave under the nose. Poor design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dda41 similar to shaving with a blade razor
not as good as my old advantage 5610, had lotion dispenser built in, did not have to pay extra for stand and charger, old razor could be used wet or dry. must use shaving gel every time with this razor, might as well go back to blade shaving. Norelco user for over thirty years, used to be replacement razors were better than those it was replacing. not so anymore

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bobby71 This product has some great features but some issues
I have been using this brand of razor for years but, with the last two I purchased, I have had some issues with the closeness of the shave. In fact, I am considering returning to a regular razor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Longball 5100 Norelco Series
This is my third Norelco shaver and they all give me a very clean shave. However, my most recent purchase of the 5100 series has the following short comings:
... No recharging stand
... Removing shaver heads for extensive cleaning is difficult for a senior citizen. Senior citizens should avoid this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by crewzin poor shawer
been using this shaver for a while, and in reality feels nice at first then 4 hours later you have to reshave. Tried it dry wet and with a pre shave stick ans pre shave lotion Poor results with all 3. If yo use it wet yo have to clean it every use kinda takes away the idea of a electric shaver

Rated 5 out of 5 by GhengisKahn Love This razor.
I've always used Norelco since I got away from blade shaving. Always bought their "entry" razors because I didn't want to spend much. I finally broke down and bought what looked like a good razor with good features and spent a bit of money on it.
What a difference. Wish I had transitioned to a better razor years ago. Love this thing ! Shaves so much better, cleanup is a breeze. Shaving is not as much of a chore as it used to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMT20 Best electric shaver
I have used a Norelco shaver off and on since I graduated from high school (and that's a lot of years ago). Always dependable and easy to use. For the past few years I have primarily used a blade to get the smoothness I desired. Occasionally I would use a Norelco that I've had for many years. My wife decided to get me a new Norelco 5700 and it's the only thing I've used since. My shaves are just as close as when I was using the blade and my skin is smoother as well. Love this product.
