I'm a straight razor or double edge guy myself, BUT I do have a Norelco and Remington on hand for when I'm in a real hurry. I MUCH prefer the Remington, but I also find that I must use Lectric Shave pre-shave to get the hairs to stand up before I use an electric razor.
For any kind of shaving, preparing your face is the key to getting a good comfortable shave. For electric razors, you want your beard to be stiffer and to stand up so the electric razor can cut them. For blades, you want your beard to be soft and lay down so the blade can do the work (this is MOST especially true when using a straight razor).
