I like Norelco razors. I was able to pick up a couple of them at TJMaxx a year or two ago. I can't remember the price but it was very inexpensive.

Hubby has a favorite one its a Philips Nivea Men, blue and silver and has a nivea balm comes with it, hubby loves it, the nivea balm costs around 6 when you need to replace it, the razor cost 69 from Asda.

I also like Norelco, but that's all I've ever used.
By the time my first one needed blades they stopped making them. I'm not as impressed with the new one.
My facial hair hasn't got any thicker, doesn't grow any faster and I'm not inclined to shave until I really need to and I've already needed blades. The replacement set is lasting better than the originals, maybe they were bad.
Luckily I made sure it would run with a cord because the battery is noticeably losing power after a couple of years.

Phillips is actually Norelco or vice versa. I have that Nivea model and its actually on of the razors I bought for $20 at TJ Maxx.

Norelco & Remington.........and one thing I've noticed, when my 'ladies' shaver broke and DH gave me his to use was that men's razors are much better for daily shaving and ladies best for longer hair. So keep that in mind. I only buy men's razors now.

Does that include foil vs rotary?
It's said among men's the rotary is for longer hair. But then the lady's seem to all be foil.

I've never used a rotary, so can't speak to that, but love the men's foil.

Also, though the ladies' does cut longer hair better, it's a pain and takes way longer than a good ol' fashioned razor.

Thank you all for your input - guess I should have clarified that I am female and looking for an electric razor for my legs. During the summer I have to shave every other day to be able to wear shorts or skirts and my legs don't really appreciate that.

With Norelco and Remington any particular models ? It's so overwhelming...

They're both pretty reliable, or try looking it up in Consumer Reports, that's what I always do. And I like you have to shave really daily or at most every other day in summer, so I DEFINITELY recommend the men's shaver! The women's shaves long hair better, but not so well on short daily or semi-daily usage.
