Wet/dry foil shaver


Unlike many electric shavers, the Panasonic Vortex ES8109S foil shaver can be used dry or wet, with shaving cream or lotion, as well as in the shower. The Panasonic ES8109S includes a cleaning/charging base that uses a special cleaning solution to wash...

Wet/dry option, easy cleaning, comfortable to hold

Noisy, cleaning cycle is long and loud, mixed reviews for durability

Good Shaver


I bought this shaver so I could shave on my way to work while waiting in traffic, and it has done a good job so far. My only real complaint about it is that it does such a bad job around my beard. I have to use a razor once or twice a week to clean it up.

Does a great job at shaving some of the rounder parts of my face. Does a decent job with the rest ; The cleaning station does a great job ; Works well in both the shower and outside it, on both dry and wet skin ; Replacement blades are inexpensive and...

I cannot get the shaver to hit my longer hairs. If I don't shave every day it has a hard time getting everything cut smooth ; It does a horrible job of trimming near my beard. If I get too close it grabs my beard and pulls hairs out, and still doesn't...

Pretty good


I would give this 5 stars, but you need to shave at least twice to get all the random stray hairs left behind from the first shave ; However, once you do get them all and keep up with shaving everyday -- this thing is great. It has saved me a bunch of...

Works great, improved performance.


The diagram for installation was misleading, as the outer foil fits into the \'cap\' on top of the razor. Once installed (which takes no time once I figured this out\') my razor seemed to be good as new - no irritations. Definitely will change this out...

Perfect Fit - Clean Shaves


Packing for a trip when the dog decided to munch on my shaver. Foil was damaged and caused irritation when I tried to use it. New foil and cleaning cartridges made my shaver work better than new!

Great Razer


I've had this shaver for quite some time. Those of you who claim it's less than par with a safety razer should try using a electric pre-shave solution such as lectric. It makes your whiskers stick up and the shave is twice as close as any normal razer...

The beard trimmer is insufficient for my thick beared

Love it


It's a very good shaver. The best of have ever tried amongst. I must prefer this style of shaver to the rotary style.

Does a good job and it has really hast charge times

Only cons is that it won't turn on when the power cable is plugged it for Safety reasons (so that you can't use it in the shower while plugged it) according to the manual. But it does charge very fast so it's not a huge problem if the battery runs out

Didn't hold up


Although the unit shaves well, I'm not sure the quality is on par with the price. I've had $30 shavers hold up better.

Smooth shave

I reviewed this shaver 1 month ago and said "time will tell how well the product holds up. Well, 30 days later (too late to return to Newegg) the seldom used pop-up trimmer stopped working. Also, the cleaning system doesn't clean as well as I thought....

Great Shaver


I opened the box, charged it up, and in less than an hour, received an incredibly effortless, smooth shave. Very comfortable to hold and control. The cleaning system seems to work well also. Only time will tell on how well this shaver holds up. You...
