i have shaved with the top of the line electrick shavers like Braun, Panasonic, and Norelco. They do not shave as close as my Vision imho and you have to run it across ones hard to reach areas many times to get the hair cut skin close and that leads to razor burn on my neck. The foil works better on the chin and above while the rotory is good on the neck. Nevertheless, I will occasionly shave with an electric to make me appreciate what the DE does for me
Have a wonderful shaving day

Ya, electrics are child's play.

Ran get a good shave after running over the same spots ad nauseum, but it's boring and burning.

I gave up on electrics when I could no longer buy a replacement foil a mere two years after I bought the razor. :evil:

Every time I’ve used an electric shaver 30 minutes later I think....I need to shave.

I know we're supposed to dis electrics here, but I've always had an electric around and I appear to have done better with it than some others.

When I came to SMF, I had been electric shaving for a number of years and I was perfectly happy with the results. I never had any trouble getting foils and blades for Braun shavers. I returned to DE shaving with a brush and soap - all of which I had used in the past - out of nostalgia.

Lately, I have gotten lazy and have been using the Braun again at times. It is a different tool, requires a different technique, and has different strengths and advantages. It gives me a shave just as good as what I get with a blade and it does it with less irritation.

We all do what works for us and what gives us pleasure. And each individual determines these for himself.

Each one has its advantages: electric one does not hurt your skin generally!

You've nailed it. My facial lawnmowers did an OK job but I just grew tired of having those electric contraptions buzzing in my face every day so I started migrating to wet shaving, ultimately landing where I am in traditional shaving.

There will come a day, hopefully not too soon, when circumstances dictate the return to an electric.
