How distinction needs shall I make between the various models?
And who would get lost in such information overload? The potential user!
Thus, understanding the difference between an electric shaver, and all the other products-be they brushes, vacuums, and mice-is of utmost importance in order to avoid becoming confused.
How I recognized the difference between electric shavers?
You might assume that because many brands use the same shape and weight as an electric shaver it must be exactly alike.
But this is often not the case.
I respect-and I am blinded by respect- the long-standing design of my Swiss-made electric shaver. This was always the product I purchased–as this is a product made in one of the finest factories in Switzerland. The shape closely resembles my electric shaver, which is made from German “S-series (Brand) Extra” aluminum.
This plastic is, for the most part, extremely powerful, resilient, and effective. It has become the benchmark for aluminum cookware (some call it “horsehair” decent, since it does not come from animal hides).
And…the material is expensive. It should be great for any budget. But instead, I found myself constantly returning to the next promising offering. Something weird was happening: the forced branding, the choice of the premium model, the colors, the matt tiles…
Shaving no bother- The Braun 10000 Ergonomic is one of Braun’s higher end EDC, or Everyday Carry. Braun describes the Ergonomic as, “A basic line with these features:
Made from premium Germanium aluminum for lifetime of year at home or office. Extremely energy efficient. Available in two color combinations: white or black with Red or Blue trim (Base: 19.2cm x 13m)
– Only 3 plugs to plug in the three areas of the body, at the neck, shoulders and ass.
– Eyelet with 1850C lashing.
– Split, locking mortise with T nut.
– Two layers stainless steel shaving blade and double steel wire guard between the blade and the dust shield.

For a giant notebook. And then there are the colors. Suitable for experience users: black. Semi-solid, “luster” look. The two models shown below look nothing alike. Those are different trays/caddies. The off-white looks more like silicone than aluminum. The blue looks metal. A real work of art. I’ll show you both.

I always post my reviews to Amazon, as there is a delay of 2-3 weeks between the time I finished writing the review and Amazon actually delivers the product. The mylar stick and mini-fork reviews come sooner. Before I had to wait for Poland to move his several orders of all my favorite timepieces over.
These should be familiar to most of you–as they are usually my reviews. I have companies compete on sales within 500 so I can’t really comment on reviews on a brand-by-brand basis. Once you know the company, though, you should’ve a better idea of what to expect in terms of quality.
Finally, in contrast to writing conventional reviews (which will be learned in several episodes of this series), I decide which companies to review.
Some of these I learned over the years while working for WatchTime.I started out as a “sales person” whose job was to sell my customers their products. I have an MBA from Indiana University, so I know what I’m doing out in the real world. These companies involved:
Adobe: Whenever a product needed to change or supplant my CC-Watches, I’d contact Adobe support and perform my due diligence testing to determine whether this evolution was covered by their warranty and how I should proceed. I would even download the products I was buying to confirm if the product I is reviewing was inducted in my Kindle-rded to my CC’s zip file.
