Very Close Shave


I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a good affordable shaver that gives you a nice close shave.

I bought this shaver when my Remington Titanium (which was 10 yrs. old so I couldn’t complain on that), but would not hold a charge any longer and had to be plugged in all the time to work. I couldn’t just plug it in and shave because the batteries...

The only con I can find is that you cannot run it while plugged in. Which I understand because this is a Wet/Dry shaver, and you can use it in the shower. So I can see that you don't want to electrocute anyone, but that is the only con that I can see

Great electric shaver


All together best and least expensive electric rechargeable I have found. Works best on damp face or when shaver is damp from just having been cleaned.

Close shave after 2 passes ; Quick recharge ; Can take it into the shower

Can't use while recharging and charge goes from 20% very quickly so recharge at 20% and no problem

Panasonic ES-RT51-S


Got this on sale so it was cheap but still a waste of money. The motor feels weak compared to other shavers I have owned. Shaver head does not contour to my face as well as other brands. It's like shaving with a bowling pin, it runs over my face...

Cheap ; Waterproof ; No irritation

Cuts poorly ; No irritation because it's not doing anything ; Can't use it while plugged in

I use it daily but it still tends to miss the longer hairs, I guess my hair grows a lot faster than I thought it did. Shaving more frequently might help keep the hairs short enough so they all stick into the cutting holes right away

Battery lasts at least a week ; Works fine in the shower ; Cuts my hair

Misses hairs sometimes, must do multiple passes to get everything ; Longer hairs don't seem to enter into the foil where the blades are and thus don't get cut ; Irritated my skin the first few times, might help if you use only in the shower but I...

I love this shaver!


I have 3 shavers and they are all different heads. This one in particular is the only one to shave my mustache and actually keep it down and smooth for at least two days then it starts growing. Usually I have to shave it on the second/third day. Now it...

Quality material ; Very organized ; Comes in a cloth? thing to put in ; Has a cover for the trimmer ; You can wash it with water ; Shows you the charge

None at all

Works well


I bought this as a replacement for a lesser Panasonic model and the razor is a good step up. The motor runs quite fast, so you don't have to linger in one area to get a good shave. Also, because this uses a cable to charge (instead of a block), you can...

Charging cable, Charge display, speedy motor, price

Inability to shave while charging, Charge display works in increments of 20

Decent price and Panasonic is a reputable brand


Rechargable, Good grip, doesn't nick and scrape you up, cleans easy. An $80.00 wet/dry shaver is just as good as a $300.00 right

Battery Life, has to go over the same area like 4 times to completely remove the hair

Aweful shave.


I am pretty hairy and have very thick facial hair.

It has a little display of how much battery it has left. It may work well for people who are just entering puberty

I bought this on sale for $35. It seemed like a good idea since I have to stay clean shaven for my job and I grow just about a full beard over night. I've tried shaving with this twice now, the first time It really did nothing, I did notice a few...

Great Product


Price isn't too bad, considering the money spent in shaving foam, face lotion due to skin irritation, shaver cartridges and time wasted shaving with razors, etc ; Doesn't irritate my skin (now I'm shaving every morning just for the sake of it) and does...

Doesn't make coffee
