    Many years ago, I bought a Panasonic ES8080, and I absolutely love it. If that thing ever dies or I can no longer get replacement blades for it, I'd get another high-end Panasonic in a heartbeat.

    I've been using the triple head Philips Norelco brand since I first started shaving at around 16 yo. Highly recommend them. There are several models starting at around $49 up to almost $200.. For around $100-$125 you can get one of their better rechargable models.. no need to buy the top of the line model. Walmart probably has the best prices.

    rnch saidnorelco is the ONLY way to go!

    Agreed. I've used them for over 30 years, they never break on me. I only buy new when they improve them. I just bought my partner a new Norelco with a SensoTouch 3D shaving head 3 weeks ago, their best model, and he loves it.

    But that may be outside your budget. Be aware the SensoTouch 3D comes in different versions, the most expensive including a self-cleaner charging stand, with digital readouts and all kinds of bells and whistles. But a simpler model, that still has the same 3D shaving head and so shaves just as well, can be bought for under $200.

    My "Norelco" triple head, with "quadra action" is lousy.
    I always have to follow it up with a regular razor.

    I'd LOVE to have an electric shaver that really works.

    I used to have a Norelco of some sort. Replaced it a couple of times. Never seemed to really last or perform well. I went back to blades years ago.

    Of course, I guess you're supposed to change the blades once in a while. But trying to find something like that in a small town is generally a long frustrating safari. I guess nowadays, one can simply order them up on the internet.
