This product has two titanium microscreens with ComforTech contour technology. It also utilizes a CleanShave washable design and an easy grip surface. There is a three position pop-up trimmer for precise trimming and hard to cut hairs. This shaver is rechargeable and corded with charging indicator light. It will do a 1 Hour Quick Charge and is compatible with worldwide voltage. A full charge will produce a 60 minute run time. It comes with a deluxe travel pouch and cleaning brush. Manufacturer has a 30 day performance guarantee.
It has attracted more than 740 reviews at Amazon, a high number, although it should be noted that the average rating is just 3.5 stars. The most popular shavers from rival manufacturers generally carry ratings of more than four stars.
Here is an excerpt from a three-star review that reflects some of the negative feelings about the shaver:
I have owned several Remington Shavers for many years. I found this one to be OK, but not spectacular. The titanium foil on the heads gives it a closer and slightly more comfortable shave than the stainless steel foil on previous models. Where it falls short is in the overall quality of the shaver. It just doesn’t feel as substantial as some of the earlier models I have owned, and still own. The pop up trimmer, at least the one on my shaver pops up very very slowly. “Pop up” is a little optimistic, I would characterize it more properly as “saunters up at a casual pace”. While this is no big deal, I think it reflects that this model was just not made up to the highest standards of Remingtons that I have owned in the past.
And part of another three-star review:
This trimmer is pretty weak and inefficient compared to other shavers I’ve used. It’s just not powerful and doesn’t cut the hairs well. Eventually I get a good shave, but it takes a long time of going over my face over and over. I think I’m going to buy a different shaver and just keep this as a backup. The previous Remington model that I had, Remington F4790, is cheaper than this one and does a better job (at least as far as the trimmer goes). I might order that same one again.
And yet…this shaver does have more than 450 four-star and five-star reviews, a high number. Many users say this is the best shaver they have ever used.
