and which brand of both is recommended?

personally I use Razors and think E-Shavers are unnesserary for its price.

but some friends of mine have different view point.
what do you think?

I use an electric Braun...I know that a manual razor gets a closer shave, but I find manual razors to be too much hassle. Have to go to the bathroom, lather my face up, and then spend a few minutes raking the razor over it. With an electric I can just give myself a quick shave in less than a minute in my room in front of the mirror, much more convenient and takes less time.

Napalm just found the reason I only shave every 2 to 4 days. It's friggin' time consuming to do it right.

well, I shave while I am taking a shower, and I don't bother with the lather stuff, just soap or shampoo will do.

and if tidiness is not concerned, i can go without shaving for a week and look like UniBomber.

If I had a mirror and adequate lighting, I'd shave in the shower. But I don't have either, so that pretty well rules it out.

I usually use my trusty old Bruan (213) electric shaver, which has been in operation since 88'. But when I have to get a really close shave I use my trusty new Mach 3 :)

Cheer,

Electric... I only need to shave every two days (although it wouldn't hurt to do it everyday). I do it right after I shower and that's when I get the smoothest shave. It's just those damn parts below the jaw line that are a pain in the ass to get at!

Electric - I use a Norelco Advantage. I've used a Mach III - but it doesn't compare to the Advantage, it shaves closer than any other razor I've ever used. You really need to try it to believe it.

mach 3 every other day.

You ever want an incredible close shave? try a straight razor. Ya, the things that look like freddy krugers fingers.

Seriously, you wont need to shave again for several days... I thinks it's because your facial hairs are too scared to come back out!

I use a $17 dollar beard trimmer. Picture a miniature set of barber clippers. That's what I use about every 3 or 4 days.

Yes...I am a hair bastage :)

i'm still using a sensor excel because i'm too cheap to throw away all these blades i have. that and i only shave like twice a week so i don't go through them very fast. i'll have blades until i die at this rate
