I beard easily; even a straight-razor barbershop shave leaves me with a bit of five o'clock shadow. I also have sensitive face-skin so I tend to have a beard. I want to try staying "clean" shaven for a while. Is an electric razor a worthwhile investment?

I've heard electric razors are bad for the skin but that sounds like one of those things people say. Are they, in any significant way?
Also, if they're okay, what's the best kind to get that is reasonably priced? I've seen them go up pretty high (hundreds of dollars) but I have no idea if that's reflecting considerable differences in quality or just Sharper Image infrared light magic nonsense.
