Remington shavers don't seem to be as popular these days when compared to the other big brands.
Braun, Panasonic and Philips Norelco seem to be getting much more attention. I think the reason is that each of these brands has released a really advanced shaver which has created a lot of buzz in the market.
Braun has the Series 7 shavers, Panasonic has the only 5 bladed shaver, and Philips Norelco has the SensoTouch shavers.
So what does Remington have?
They don't really have a shaving unit which competes with the units mentioned above. There's not really an advanced and highly marketed product at the moment.
Instead, this brand seems to be more about affordability.
This is especially true when it comes to their replacement blades. Their replacement parts tend to be much cheaper when compared to the other brands.
But these are not just affordable.
The other characteristic that many people agree upon is the closeness.
"Affordably Close Shaves" is a good slogan to give them. Obviously not everyone will agree, but it probably applies to most.
So don't expect to be blown away by some extremely high tech shaving unit. As of right now, that just won't happen.
Instead, expect to pay well under $100 for a reliable shaver which produces a close shave, and isn't expensive to maintain.
In my opinion this is the best model from the F Series.
It's more comfortable than the F4 which is outlined below, and it's cheaper than the F6 and 7 models.
You'll need to pay a bit more over the F4 because you're getting 3 foils instead of 2, but the extra features which come with the more advanced models (F6 and 7) aren't really needed.
The fact that you can find this at a sales price for under 50 dollars is a very good deal.
I would say these are good options if you really want to keep your budget below 50 dollars, however spending an extra 20 to 30 dollars and upgrading to a mid level Braun or Panasonic is something to think about.
It's an improvement on the previous model, but keep in mind you're not getting a top of the line product here. You're getting what you pay for.
This is a budget razor that delivers a very close shave, but it does have a few disadvantages as well.
Close and affordable shaves is what you can expect with this model as I mentioned above.
Many experienced users would probably agree that the F Series systems are known to deliver a very close shave, while also being quite affordable.
Also, the replacement parts are very affordable. They are half, or three times less expensive when compared to Braun, Panasonic and Philips.
But there are a few disadvantages as well. If you have very thick facial hair it might leave some hairs on your neck area, and if you have very sensitive skin it might be a bit too harsh for you.
If you keep those two things in mind, and remember that this is not a high end model, you should make the right buying decision.
