I've owned this model for four years now and have replaced the blades 5 or 6 time and the foil once. The charge still holds for over a week. This is the best electric shaver I've owned.

Quick comfortable shave

Smooth and non-iritating


Looking for a razor that will not tear up your skin and leave a red rash? This is it!

Very Nice


Very nice shaver, I'm happy with it.

Qucik, close shave ; Easy to clean ; Charges quickly

Will not run off power when plugged in, still only uses the battery. So if your battery runs out and you want to finish your shave with it plugged in to the wall, forget it

Amazing Wet Shaver


Gave this four stars for a couple reasons. The battery life is great. Put some suds on the face and this shaver is a whole different beast. Trust me, this shaver would not ever work dry on my tough beard. Now I shave, wash it out, turn it on to vibrate...

Purchased this shaver after my old Remington would not hold a charge and there is no battery replacement available. This shaver had great ratings along with the Panasonic name so I purchased it. The high vibration 14,000 RPM motor also makes the soap...

If you have a tough thick beard, forget about shaving with this dry, it is worthless. In the morning when I first started using it, I would come down and the wife would say aren't you going to shave today? Almost gave up on this unit until I put some...

Panasonic ES8243A Arc IV Rechargeable Men's Wet/Dry Shaver w/ Quadruple Nanotech Blades


This is my 3rd Panasonic shaver over the last 15 years. All of them have been great including this one. I shave my head and face almost everyday before I get in the shower. I usually shave dry and love the convenience of having an electric shaver....

Great shave especially on my head. Charges in about an hour. I get about 5 to 7 shaves (5 minutes each) on each charge. Ability to shave in the shower is great and wet/dry option makes cleaning super easy. Fast motor

Has trouble shaving my neck area. This is a common complaint for linear blade electric shavers. Trimmer is not nearly as good as the one on the older models. Can't use while plugged in but this is a minor con since it charges so quickly. A little loud

lousy shave


I have a 25 year old non rechargeable razor that shaves better (Norelco),. safe to say I am going to look for another rotary and will not use a foil again.

Nice display, I like the timer, the internal cleaning

I tried it first in the shower with shaving cream and was not impressed, after the shower I had to shave with a regular razor because of all the stubble left behind ; I then tried a dry shave with same results. Not impressed with the shave quality at...

Pansonic ES8242A Razer


This is my first ever online review and I had to give a review for this product because it impressed me so much. I've been looking out for electric razors and this one is my first electric razor and I'm already glad that the purchase is worth it...

In my experience, even closer shave than a blade razor without the skin irritation and tug and pull. Time saver, easy to clean, easy to use. I am very impressed

Sometimes it takes extra usage on the neck to remove the beard on the neck. Not too much of a big deal but it is there as an issue

Very good shaver


Closest shave I've had w/an electric razor. MUCH better than the old Panasonic I had (ES-RT31)...lighter and more comfortable to hold. At around 4 min per shave, it looks like the battery can last up to a week between charges...that's pretty good in...

No, it doesn't shave as close as a Fusion (razor) would, but that's simply unrealistic
