Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shadow1142 This product is very reliable.
I've been using this product for well over a year and I have to say it is one of the best electric razors I have ever used. It does not tug on my hairs, leave an itchy feeling, or razor burn. Although you may have to run over a few spots a couple times to make sure a hair doesn't slip past, it leaves a remarkably smooth shave.
As for the durability of the product, I've dropped it, tossed it, juggled it, and anything you can think of to potentially damage it. But I've always managed to pick it up use it. As for cleaning, all you have to do is open it up and tap the head a couple times and finish by rinsing with water. Easy. Only 5 minutes of my life every day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill57 Love it!
I experienced this shavr when my sister bought it for my father who had had a sroke. It went through his 7 day growth esily! I since bought one for mysel online and am very impressed at the close shave it gives in less time than my old norelco. Plus the digital timer of remaioning battery charge is great- I have been using it 2-3 times weekly for the last 3 weeks with still over 25 inutes of charge left! Buy it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Travlinman Good traveling razor for constant use
I found the R5 rotary razor to be a good, low cost alternative for those of us that spend a lot of time on the go.
It's light weight and longevity between charges makes it an ideal razor for thoes of us that are traveling constantly and where abuse from dropped luggage, falls from small countertops and other forms of abuse take place.
The R5 does not produce as close of a shave as some of the higher priced models but it does do an adequate job and seems to be a reliable razor under most conditions.

Ergonomically, the shaver feels good to hold in your hand. It's flexible heads allow for a smooth, close shave. I like the fact that you can use tap water to rinse out the shaving head. The digital battery readout and quick charge feature add a nice touch.
The online package may have been a Christmas special, but I found the shaver, bundled with a replacement set of cutter heads, for about what you'd pay alone for the shaver. This added value sold me on purchasing this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RayBarry37 A Good Shave
It took my new razor and my beard several days to equilibrate, i.e., to get used to each other; now, I am very comfortable with it. I like to alternate between safety razor and electric razor shaving to minimize facial irritation caused by constant use of either method. No matter what electric razor I have used, including this one, the safety razor always has the capability of providing a closer shave, by the nature of it's design (blade against the face).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Billy152 I prefer the rotary blades.
I have tried other shavers, and rotary blades seem to give me the closest shave. I ordered the shaver online and it was quite a bargain,including an extra set of blades.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Shiff R5 Rotary Razor
Purchased 3 weeks ago. Takes about 20 minutes of shaving going over and over the same area to get anything close to a clean shave. Stubble appears in a few hours. Not impressed with this razor at all. I will be returning it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bobo44 AT LAST A GOOD ELECTRIC SHAVER
I have been using this shaver for a couple of weeks now.
It shaves as close as a blade. I dont suffer from irritation, razor burn,
or any painfull pulling not cutting of my 62 year old wire like wiskers.
I now have a SMILY FACE :) when i shave.
Thank You Remington.
