I got one earlier this week. The Norelco website said they were available at Target. I went to Target and they only had one left, so I bought it. Looks like it’s going to be popular, and more guys are body shaving than we thought. I was at the same Target a week earlier and they didn’t have any at all.
I like it. It does a very good job. It shaves reasonably close and can be used anywhere without nicking the skin. It has the best trimmer I have ever seen on a shaver! The foil does a pretty good job too.
As far as comaring it to the Remington, the trimmer on the Norelco is a lot better. I use it without any trimmer guards. With the Remington, the trimmer blades are pointy and have wide gaps, so they can pinch and cut the skin. For shaving in the pubic area you need to use the blade guard. But it does do a nice job with the blade guard. I like the foil on the Remington better, but the foil is not as big as on the Norelco, so shaving takes a little bit longer. The Remington is a lot quieter than the Norelco, just the opposite of the face shavers. The Norelco rotary face shavers are the quietest around, while the Remingtons are the noisiest.
The Norelco is more expensive than the Remington, but it has a 60 day trial period.
Overall, based on my first impressions, I like the Norelco better. The foil is larger so it can cover more area, and the trimmer is far better than on the Remington. Plus the Norelco can be used to shave anywhere below the neck, and it can be used safely without the trimmer guard. The Remington is still very good though, and some may prefer it.
Try one, if you don’t like it return it and try the other. The factory will take it back so the stores should not refuse a refund. They do not resell returned shavers. Besides, you would be able to tell by the opened blister pack.
