Remington MSC-140 Review
This battery-operated shaver sports two foil screens (as opposed to the standard one), which make for a less-irritating shave. Although the screens may not last all that long, the rock-bottom price minimizes the sting. There's an integrated brush for cleaning.
Loyal users of the Remington MSC-140 admit in reviews that they bought this model without many expectations. But at a price that barely reaches the double-digit range, the majority of reviewers express pleasant surprise with the results from this battery-operated flex-foil shaver. One Remington MSC-140 review at Amazon notes that the original intent was to use it as a back-up for a "regular" Remington. But alas, this slower model misses fewer hairs and is now put to work daily, the reviewer writes. Another post echoes this comment, reporting at Best Buy that the travel-ready Remington MSC-140 beats out a $75 shaver. And because this model is so cheap, the reviewer continues, he buys five at a time and stores them wherever he might need to get in a quick shave.
The primary complaint lodged against the Remington MSC-140 concerns the rapid disintegration of the twin foil screens. But the price is so low that most users don't seem to mind pitching a worn-out unit and starting over. On the other hand, many users report getting six to eight months of use before signs of wear. Most reviewers agree that this model produces a clean, close, irritation-free shave. Still, it's often relegated to the travel or back-up bin.
The foil screens on the MSC-140 (starting at $10, Amazon) are made of titanium, and each unit comes with a protective cap for the floating head. The shaver should be cleaned with the included brush; do not run under water. The two AA batteries can be replaced when needed.
This portable, compact shaver sells at a price that can't be beat, especially given its performance.
