Very Nice


In order to get the best use out of the shaver you have to use the pop-up trimmer to get some hairs that stick to your face that the foil cannot pick up. Its quite sharp on a sensative neck, but works great if you don't press. Scrapping it seems to...

I would recommend this shaver to anyone ; This is the first electric razor I have used that has worked for me. I have very sensative skin and could not use the older models. After doing quite a bit of research I settled on this and could not be happier...

The cleaning cycle is quite loud, but its pretty easy to pop off the top and clean it by hand per the directions. I usually use the charger/cleaner every other time. This is a pretty big con, but if you run it on your way out of the house I am not sure...

Completely satisfied


Panasonic says it takes about a month for your skin to get used to the shaver. They are right. First few times it feels uncomfortable, but that passes. Now I would never switch back to razors.

More convenient than standard shaver ; Fast charging ; Battery last 1-2 weeks depending on usage ; Can use wet or dry ; Easy to clean

razor probably has a closer shave

This is IT!


While the cleaning is a bit noisy, I just put in another room and charge once a week. I have tried countless electric savers. All I got was a rash due to sensitive skin & terrible stubble. This shaver is flawless! On sale @ with rebate I picked it up...

Simply amazing shave - as good or better than my Mach 4 shaver ; Great battery life ; Like that you can clean with charging station or with soap

It does not shave w/o human interaction

Pretty great, even for a first time electric razor.


Simple to use. Waterproof which is great. Long battery life. Timer

Takes a long time to learn how to use it(may just be a personal thing since it is my first electric razor.) The self cleaner is loud and lasts for about 30 min

Very pleased!


I've had a razor made by the guy "who liked it so much he bought the company" for a few years. The difference between that one and my Panasonic is like the difference between a Chevy and an Audi. They're both cars but one is definitley nicer than the...

The razor is not nearly as big as it might seem in the pictures. Very compact, fits nicely in the hand and quiet! When I turned it on it was so quiet I thought, "Right, like that little thing is gonna give me a good shave!". But it does. Very smooth...

Can't think of one at the moment... No little cleaning brush? But then you can wash this out and keep moving, or put it in the cleaner / recharger base and you're good to go

Best razor ever!!!


Battery lasted for 10 days on a vacation, shaving twice a day. Love the ability to use soft soap with hot water for a real close hot shave. Sometimes top it off with a quick blade for ultimate closeness. I've owned many razors over the years, this one...

Takes up a bit of counter space, if you use the base. But you can use it without the base too. I ended up installing a plug under the bathroom sink, and keep the unit there

Best electric shaver I have ever owened.


I use it daily, but could skip a day, cause that\'s how close the shave is. Really like the short time it takes too charge, The trimmer works superb, and the entire unit is excellent.

Thanks again Newegg!


EZ to change the blades, they just pull out!!

The item makes my shaver just like new!! Only wish these heads would last longer!! Panasonic makes awesome shavers though, use it on my face and head

The price!! Maybe next time I'll buy a new shaver INSTEAD of replacing the head and blades
