I tried one the Braun 7 series (7526? I forget the number). It was Synchrosomething. It had the built in caddy with the automatic wash and dry gimmick.
It shaved OK, but still wasn't all that great. Braun cartridges have a thin film which is prone to breakage, and the cartridges are rather pricey. And you'll have to buy a new cartridge for the washer thing, too, which aren't cheap, either.
The wash-and-dry part wasn't that great either, since the unit started to rust out down by the head after several months of daily use.
Mine didn't have all the LCD panel goofy stuff. Even as a tech guy, those extra features, to me, are the epitome of superfluous.
Fact of the matter is, a 5, 4, or even 3 blade razor works much better and is a better investment.
BTW, did you know Braun is owned by one of the other big shaving companies (Gillette, I think).
(I also use a Braun electric toothbrush with the newest attachment that has a built-in flosser thing. I highly recommend the Braun-Oral B electric toothbrushes.)

(definitely some interesting threads)
I am interested in getting more info on the new Braun electric shavers. I am sure there is a forum out there (I've seen it) on shaving but I can't find it.
Any suggestions on the Brauns or the Shaving forum? I don't think the Braun 360 (the top of the line) is really necessary but is activator or even the Syncropro just as good?
