The Remington F4790 Men's pivot and flex foil shaver features advanced pivot and flex technology for an ultra-close, ultra-clean shave. Two independently flexing foils and a pivoting neck make this shaver incredibly comfortable to use, and the two foils allow you to shave in half the time of single-foil shavers. Additionally, the titanium-coated trimmer blades are strong and durable for long-term use, and the shaver comes complete with a three-position pop-up trimmer. For further convenience, the Remington F4790 rinses clean and is capable of corded or cordless use. Minimize

Pros: Good shave, high value, sturdy feel, long lasting battery and quiet for a Remington.
Cons: Lack of a travel pouch -come on Remington!
The Bottom Line:
Want an affordable, sturdy shaver this one's for you. Just make sure you keep your old travel pouch.
Remington has finally quieted down their shaver. The F4790 shaves close, without causing shaver burns. I also use Braun Norelco and Panasonic shavers. After shaving with the F4790, I went over my face with my Panasonic ES8168 and there was nothing left behind by the Remington. Good job Remington. This shaver is great as a primary or backup shaver.
I bought this shaver to add to my stable. I like to keep switching every month between shavers. Most Remington products prior to this were very noisy. While not as quiet as a Norelco, you no longer need ear plugs. I’ve found most Remington foil shavers are quite good. This one shaves almost as close as my TF600.
I like the fact that you can clean the shaver by running it under the faucet. I’d still use the cleaning brush prior to using water. I might try the trick I can use on my Panasonic and squirt a little liquid soap on the foil and turn the shave on for a few seconds. That really cleans out my ES8168
The one thing I do not like is the lack of a travel pouch. That just seems to be cheap on Remington’s behalf. The package I bought contained a shaver stand. I would gladly trade that for a pouch. If this was my sole shaver, I could use the stand at home but that still leaves you in a bind when traveling.
I’ll update this review if my opinion changes.
