    Its a great tool. It has a large hair pop out tool (that’s not advertised very well), it is waterproof, it has good battery capacity, and it has a feature where you can lower half of the blades to only shave with the top piece (necessary for upper lip under nose). It also comes with a nice carrying case, a charging dock, and a little oil for in the blades. I haven’t used it long enough, however, to comment on extended use.

    I had the Panasonic ES8103 which was ok, but it started to malfunction after only 5 months. It also did not give the close shave that many other reviews pointed to. I like using a wet/dry electric, and saw the Norelco 1160x at Costco and used it for about 10 months. It did not give me as close a shave as even the Panasonic. I was ready to settle with that though, as I did not know there were other companies making a wet/dry razor.

    I found the Braun 380S-4 through online research and have had it about a week. I am really pleased so far. It gives the closest shave of any of the wet/dry razors I have tried, and I like also that you can lower one of the shaving heads for getting to my upper lip. I recommend this razor, and believe that this one is a keeper.

    Best Foil Shaver for My Thick Tough Manly Wire-Like Hair Yet!, November 28, 2011

    I’ve used this shaver for a few weeks now and am very impressed. In fact, I’m so impressed I just purchased a second one last night for my travel bag I keep with me in my car. I only use it wet with Edge Ultra Sensitive Shave Gel after wetting my face with water as from past experience with other electric shavers that always provides for a far superior shave, hence why I wanted this wet/dry shaver. If you’ve never tried a wet electric shave, have tough to cut hair, and you shave near a sink, I highly recommend trying it. I haven’t tried this shaver dry, so I can not comment on its dry performance.

    I primarily use this shaver for my upper lip and the area around my chin, my upper neck (which it still does an amazing job with), and lips since my hair grows even tougher in these areas, they’re hard to shave on, and I often end up gashing myself if I use a regular blade. I do find I have to push pretty hard to get a close shave, and I’m wondering what that’s going to do to the life of the foil/cutters, but at least this shaver has yet to nick me! As with other electric shavers (and to a lesser extend blades even), it may take up to 5-10 passes over my skin to cut my hair thoroughly, and I also make sure I pull/stretch my skin against the direction my hair grows in so that my hair pops out more off my skin.

    I still use a blade in combination with this (Gillette Fusion Proglide Power) on the rest of my face, and for touching up. I’ve tried many electric shavers in the past – Braun, Norelco, Remington, Panasonic, and Sanyo shavers and they’ve all let me down, draining me of thousands of dollars. I had been previously using a Sanyo SV-RX10 shaver for several years that I purchased several of since it was the best of the wet/dry shavers that I tried that would even semi-work with my thick tough hair. Unfortunately though I had two of them that just died, the foil/cutter assembly didn’t last long, and the shaver itself was cheaper than getting the replacement foil/cutter assembly from only one of two sources that sold it!

    I was hesitant to try a Braun again due to a bad experience with one of their higher end shavers in the $200 range that I ended up returning. It was so loud it would wake up the entire house and I would have had a better shave running the edge of a pair of scissors down my face. This Braun 380S-4 not only does an even superior job to the Sanyo I liked, but it’s also far quieter than the Sanyo as well as the previous Braun I tried, while still having lots of power in the motor. Not only is the motor and blade motion quieter, but when I first used it I didn’t even think it was cutting my hair at all since with other electric shavers I’ve been able to hear them cut my hair. It also comes with a nice travel case, though there isn’t space in it to hold the charger unfortunately.

    My only concern so far with the Braun 380S-4 is the replacement foil/cutter (apparently part number 32s/b) that is available as of writing this is not of the same design (at least the foil) as included with the 380S-4 new. So, I’m hoping the older design will be discontinued soon in favor of the foil design on this shaver with regular circular holes instead of the random sized/shaped holes on the older design that doesn’t let my hair through.

    I can’t comment on extended use and the life of the foil/cutter assembly (which is always a gross exaggeration by manufacturers) since I haven’t had it long enough to even charge a second time, but I might update this review at a later date when I can provide some more feedback. One last note: you can find additional reviews on Amazon’s UK site (amazon.co.uk). This is where I read the inital reviews for this shaver since there was only a couple here at the time I purchased this.
