Excellent Shaver!


This is my first electrical shaver and I am loving it. Wet shave results same as with my safety razor

No cons

Astounding! Best shave I've ever had!


In the past I've had both Norelco triple head shavers and Remington foil shavers that I thought did a reasonably good job, but I have to say that this shaver is by far the best that I have ever had. To be fair, the other electric shavers I've had were...

Wet/dry, long lasting charge, self-cleaning system, comfortable grip, extremely close shave, replacement blades & foils are reasonably priced, very nice looking shaver ; The last electric shaver I had was a Remington triple head foil shaver that I had...

None so far

So far, so good


It didn't take long to adjust to this shaver (from rotary). It shaves well, but when it's near your ears, you really hear it. Construction is great, the handle is comfortable, and it charges quickly. Haven't used the cleaning system yet, so I can't...

Close shave, easy to clean, wet or dry shave, comfortable grip

Pretty loud drone, compared to rotary shavers, pricey cleaning cartridges

Unbelievably close?


I tried electric because my face gets easily torn up and was hoping that maybe it would be better than using a blade. It didn't irritate my face but it doesn't shave so I guess that could be why

Looks nice (but looking at a razor doesn't get the job done)

Had to follow up with a blade. Thought maybe the first time was the fault of my beard being a little long (1/8 to 1/4") but the second and third time was just as unbelievably NOT close of a shave at all. Didn't bother trying the self cleaning...

Great shaver


First shaver by panasonic and I gotta say I love it.

Love the fact that you can use it in the shower and with shaving cream. The charge/clean system works very well, and I really like that it also dries the shaver. It's very well put together and looks eloquent

Runs pretty hot...could cut hair a little closer. Nothing big though

Not Outstanding


Priced way too high for what it does.

Easy to clean, waterproof, good ergonomics, doesn't irritate the skin

Not really a better shave than a 30 dollar Remington in my case. It may work great for some, but not worth the price for me. More marketing hype than innovation, I think

It Works


Get it you'll save on buying blades. Every month costing $20 for a pack of Mach3 blades. One to two years this thing pays for itself. Only thing you'll every have to buy is cleaning cartidges and the once a year nanotech blade. Which is allot cheaper...

Hey it works and it works good. Just as good as a razor. Which i used a Mach3 blade. The self cleaning is nice and so is the cradle it sits in. This thing rocks. I can shave ever day and not worry about razor burn at all. With a razor I have to...

Not really any, but it's louder then a razor blade. Hehehehe

Panasonic ES8228S Vortex Nano Shaver with Nanotech Blades


Easily the best of the best. There is nothing sold today to compare. Forget other high-end competitors. I was a life-long blade shaver, and this is the only one on the market that will not let you down. What a pleasure and a convenience. I recommend to...

None after 5 weeks of daily use

Not for the heavy-bearded


I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my husband, who has quite a case of heavy facial hair and has to shave every day for work. He tried it a couple of times, but it broke him out so badly he didn't think he'd be able to use it. While I wouldn't...

excellent shaver!


I have used Norelco shavers for many many years. I decided to replace my current one with the Panasonic ES8228. What a treat! I now shave wet (using foam shaving cream). My shaves are more comfortable (as opposed to using a pre-shave product). The...
