Shaving question

    Hey all,

    I know this is probably a dumb topic to post, but for some reason I trust SJ's collective judgment. My electric razor went out after nearly 10 years of perfect service. I'm very happy it lasted so long, but does anybody have a recommendation for a good new one to purchase? I'd like to stay below $100, so again, any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Consumer Reports' "Best Buy" is the Remington MicroScreen 500 MS2-390, which goes for about $60. With an overall rating of 80, it is by far the highest-rated electric shaver under $100.

    For about $35, you can get the Panasonic ProCurve Double Blade ES4026NC, which has an overall rating of 76.

    Too itchy, or I totally would Zeke. I'm a clean-shaven kinda guy.

    Thanks for the help! I found it for $47 on Amazon, so that's looking like it might be the winner.

    Where's the plug? :D

    I've used about every brand of electric shaver and I always go back to a basic disposable razor. Electric razors don't shave close enough to suit me and have problems getting coverage in the neck.

    If you have anything more than a wisp for whiskers, I'd advise avoiding the Remingtons.

    I returned mine after one month of use because it lacked the ability to provide a clean shave -- always had to follow up with a Bic. The motor was weak and it failed to hold a charge.

    My replacement is a Norelco, paid about $120, and so far it's much better.

    Gilette Mach 3. Not the ultra, turbo, vibrating, 15-blade model that does your taxes. Just the Mach 3.

    Works like a charm (with the shaving gel, of course).

    But then again, I only really have to shave twice a week.

    This is exactly what I would have written -- minus a quote from Wilson Wilson, of course.

    Wilson Wilson?

    When did I quote Wilson Wilson? No obscure philosphers... nothing about the mating habits of migratory nocturnal insects... what gives?
