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...

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...

Good buy


This shave is really easy to clean, understand, and use. It does a great job giving a fairly close shave in just about every area of my face and neck. Some areas require more work to get a close shave, but this is true of every shaver ive ever met. I...

If there is one, its that its noisier then any shaver I have had before. It would also have been nice to see a couple more items in the box, like another cleaning solution cartirdge or something

Not That Good


I tried to give it a month, but this razor was not getting any better after two weeks. I had a Remington Titanium that quit that did a better job, even after almost dying. I had to buy a cheap Norelco razor and that has done a better job from day one...

Cleaning using the cleaning base and cleaning cartridges cheap

Took way too long to shave and did not do as well as a razor 1/2 its price

Its not much better than a fusion. The fusion, one swipe hairs gone this needs couple swipes, but fusion dulls out pretty quickly and u notice it then u eventually dump it, this will break in one year and u shouldn't notice the dulling, how cud u, the...

It cuts close. Quick and easy. shave and plug it in to the cleaning station, go on with ur morning routine, how much simpler does it get

It takes more swipes than i expected it to. After putting it in the self cleaner i noticed a few, less than 10, large hairs in it. compared to all the tiny piece of hair and everything that was in there, i must say good job, but still not 100% perfect,...
