Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Karl51 Switching from Foil to Rotary did not work
I have used Remington Foil shavers for over 40 years, my latest being the F5790 Foil shaver that was still working fine after one full year on the same cutters and screen. This Christmas all that was in the stores in my area for Remington were the rotary so I tried this model. After just a few shaves it began to irritate my skin really bad, especially the lower neck. I finally gave up and ordered a new F5790 online and it is working just fine. The R4 was not shaving any closer than the F5790 although it could handle any hard to cut hairs that I had to use the F5790 pop up trimmer to cut. I am keeping my old F5790 as a backup and will now just use the new F5790.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TPot3 Thankx Remington for not changing quality
My father died in 1985, he left a Remington razor behind and I fell in love with it. It finally stopped working properly. I purchased a new one and was sceptical whether it was going to be as good. Thank you Remington for not sacrificing quality for profit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Plazoo Very sore
This product looks nice feels durable but is a very rough shave. My skin still feels like it needs to be shaved. Very dull. I wish the blades were better or interchangeable. Spent more than advertised as well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SquashDuke Positively inferior product
Probably the 6th or 7th electric shaver I have had in my nearly 60 years, and by far the worst. Have used it now >18 months and am convinced it has poor reach, lousy batteries, latch opens & dumps waste when shaving under chin; takes about twice as long (for a mediocre shave) as the Arcitec it replaced ... which came the closest to a wet/blade shave. This is a very poor product; wholeheartedly recommend against it. Don't do it. Stay away from anything it its category. Not good. Aaargh.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PintoBean53 A Great First Razor
I think this would be a perfect way for teenagers that like to shave to learn the "ropes" of razor chores, cleaning the screen, etc. Those are a breeze with this value razor.I have a small face and it works well and although it feels a little slow it will run for some time on a charge.Of course with lithium batteries, it takes about ten full cycles from fully charged down to dead before the battery will hold a 100% charge, so don't be frustrated, just follow the drill and you will get many years of service from a future hand-me-down.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Utter cr@p. Dont get r@ped by remington, buy elsewhere.
Bought this 2 weeks ago. Charged for 24 hours like the manual said. Used it the first time and it worked poorly. Closeness was cr@p. Hair was still clearly visible. Once the battery died it would not recharge. Never been wet, over charged or under charged, Its simply defective. Remington have refused to replace it or refund me. If you are looking for a new electric razor don't waste your money on something the manufacturer wont even stand behind.
