Rated 4 out of 5 by BriGuy69 The only flaw, is the location of the power button.
I have always used Norelco Shavers, and this model performs as well, or better than the others that I have used. The only drawback, is the location of the power button. Like other reviewers have said, it is too easy to turn off the shaver, while you are using it.

Shaver heads were clogged. (This is my 100 year+ father-in-law's personal razor. He wasn't cleaning it properly.) I completely disassembled the shaver head, brushed the cutters and brushed away all of the old skin and clips of hair. Tried shaving him and was quite surprised how much better the razor functioned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dutch32 My thumb is always turning off the power, too sensitive.
I have used Norelco for 40 years with satisfaction, but have had a new 5000 for four months and still cannot get a close shave. I guess I will buy a new head to see if that is the problem. Other suggestion???

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1LegEnd69 Loaded with features!
In the past I was a devoted "razor guy" but as I have aged, I found that an electric shaver would be more advantageous for my daily shaves. I have known of Norelco's excellent shaver reputation so I decided to choose this 5000 series shaver. I liked the features it had, especially the wet or dry shave. The shaver gives a quick, quiet, and pain-free shave and it is very easy to clean once done. I recommend this to anyone needing a new shaver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by olderguy53 odd place for power button
Good razor, have used your products for many years. I've found that my thumb and the power button intersect while I'm shaving, causing accidental power off. It's very sensitive!
