    I always thought that they don't work as well as a blade.

    I used to use a Panasonic wet/dry and shaved in the shower. I got a great shave but it took a lot longer than a razor shave.

    They suck. If you want a smooth, close shave you need to use a razor.

    I've used one for 20 years. Once your face gets used to them, it works pretty good.

    I shave in the shower with a razor.

    Sometimes I use shaving cream. :fil:

    Do you use a mirror, or just freestyle it?

    Takes longer to shave than a razor?! Fuck that, I'll stick with a razor.

    How long does it take to get used to them.

    When I'm not sporting a beard, I use a Braun electric. For me it's as close as a blade and a lot quicker.

    I have almost that same model. Like one of the previous posters said, once you use it for a few weeks, the shave is almost as close as a blade.
