Rated 1 out of 5 by Justin Only lasted about a year
I bought this shaver because my other Braun products have lasted so long. This one lasted under a year. I took perfect care of it. Then, all the sudden, it wouldn't turn on one morning when I went to shave. It is fully charged and will still light up green, but the motor won't run at all. It went from 100% to 0% functionality. There was no relevant troubleshooting provided for this product by Braun. So, when issues do happen, Braun's website and assistance provides very little to address concerns. Also, the Cool-Tec feature sounds neat, but once I played with it a couple times, it seemed pointless, at least for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 87red Bitterly disappointed with such a 'premium' shaver
My partner bought this shaver for me as a Christmas gift. Given that it was an expensive gift I've tried to like it and force myself to use it, but unfortunately the quality of shave that this electric razor produces is absolutely abysmal and leaves my skin with a nasty rash. The neck area is the worst, the foil simply leaves patches of hair in certain areas.
As I've found it impossible to achieve a clean shave I'd suggest this product is not fit for purpose.
Unfortunately I don't believe I can return the shaver as it has now been used, but if it was possible to return it then I definitely would.

What a disaster. Having always bought the Braun top of the range Series 7 shavers ...thought I liked the sound of the cooling element built in to the shaving head. Major problems have been the result and the product has been returned to the manufacturer.
It did not shave very well in any case. Be warned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gaulder82 coolest cool tec shaver
Well bzzagent have done it again with another great product to test abd test it I sure did. The new Braun Cool Tec Shaver was amazing, had over a weeks growth of facial hair and within 2 mins of using the shaver nearly all the hair was gone. A full 5 mins later my face was hair free soft and witg the added cool technology I didn't even need to use after shave balm. This shaver is the best I have ever tryed, given that I am in the armed forces this means I need to constantly shave which can be very irritating and with a manual razer can take extra minutes to do each morning. After using the braun cool tec for less than 2 minutes the job is done and not even a shaving gel in site. This is a wonderful shaver, takes only 40 mins to charge and lasts over a week before it needs to go on charge again. The shaver also offers a short close up precision cutter that helps keep side burns nicley trimmed. Added bonus of the shaver is it can be used in the shower as it is totally water resistant, very handy for taking to work and using before I start the day. All in all I would give this shaver a big 10/10 as I have had many shavers before and this wins hands down. I have already recommended this shaver to a few people one being my brother inlaw who has already been out and brought one. Thank you bzzagent for asking me to review test this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Golfjkane Braun cooltec shaver best one around!
I'm not really a fan of electric shavers, I have never found one that hasn't given me a rash or given me a close enough shave. I have always used a razor. My wife always complains at me as I never seem to have time to keep clean shaven and sometimes won't even kiss me! I was very keen to trial this. I used this for the first time dry and I must say I was hugely impressed. It gives a really close shave, better than any other I have used in the past. It doesn't irritate me skin at all. The cooling bar is really refreshing and you can feel it doing its job. Even my wife was impressed with how soft and smooth my skin felt after using this. The second time I used it I used it wet, it still gives a really good result but I prefer to use it dry. I have being using this for 3 weeks now and I am so impressed with the Braun cool tec. I'm not sure I would pay the price tag for the product as it's a little out of my price range but I would highly recommend this product. It gives a close shave, is really easy to use, leaves my skin feeling, soft and smooth and gave me the best result I've had from shaving experience.

First impressions of the Braun cooltec shaver was that the shaver was stylish with a clean cool design - something you wouldn't mind leaving out on show.
The shaver itself was quick and easy to charge - Just pop it in the cradle and away it goes. The shaver is easy to grip and fits into your hand well making it smoother during use.
Once charged it can be used wet or dry, I prefer it dry rather than in the shower but always good to know the option is there. The fact that you can use it wet makes cleaning it incredibly easy.
The shaver has a trimmer at the back and my only criticism would be that it could be a bit longer to make trimming easier - but that is just my personal preference.
After dry shaving I decided to try out the cool function which you enable by pressing the snowflake button. I liked the coolness although even without it you got a comfortable shave. As someone that normally has irritated skin after shaving I found the Braun Cooltec shaver greatly reduced this.
I think that this is a great shaver for those who want a stylish design whilst maintaining the quality you would expect from Braun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marc1973 Wonderful wet and dry shaver?
I always use a electric razor so thought that this would be the same as the others.
I was correct. It gives a nice clean shave with no irritation to the skin.
The trimmer could have been better, but apart from that it was good.
Didn't see the point in the cooler button, as this felt the same when activated as the standard shave.
As shavers go, this is a decent model but I wouldn't pay the amount asked as a bit overpriced for what it actually does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigscot Ice Cool Shave from a Very Cool Shaver
well, when this came through the post my girlfriend was more excited than I was I think. I could hear a lot of oooohing and aaaaaahing when the box was opened so my interest piqued, I went to have a look.
Taking everything out I put it on charge first of all before looking at it, I wanted to be able to use it as soon as possible.
It didn't take too long to charge, roughly 2-3 hours. The size and shape of the shaver is perfect, I know its probably a standard now with all the razors out there but this wasn't any different, and in a good way.
I tried the shaver 4 ways, dry shave as is, dry shave with cooling, wet shave as is, wet shave with cooling.
My favourite was definitely with the cooling, that is the feature of the shaver that makes it different from others out there and it is a VERY GOOD feature. I got no stubble burn and my skin felt NO irritation, which was amazing, even dry shaving, it felt so much better than any other shaver and that is purely down to the cooling. Dry or wet shaving without the cooling was/is no different to any shaver you can buy from any shop.
I didn't need any after shave moisturiser after using this and when my face was shoved in my girlfriends for her to stroke she thought it was a very close shave and said it left my skin soft.
All in all very happy, not sure I would have bought one for myself at the price they are, but should anything happen to this one, I wouldn't hasten to ask for one for birthday/xmas from the missus.
