I've been happy with my Braun 7 series. Of all the electrics I've had, it gives the best shave. Not quite as close as a blade, but I can use it every day. My skin won't tolerate a blade every day. Its also much faster. The first one I had was one of the self-cleaning models (it got stolen out of my checked bag while traveling). I replaced it with a lower end 7 series that cuts just as well. The foil and cutter seem to last a very long time too.
