Meh Does a good, I don't care shave


Good enough shave for work ; wet dry ; autoclean autodry ; hasn't lost sharpness yet

Have to touch up with straight razor depending on the situation ; take a while to get everywhere if your shaving and not paying attention, have to pull skin tight due to my fat face to get a good shave :) ; overpriced

Worth it


I have a heavy and solid beard growth to the point I could almost shave twice a day. I can not shave at night and expect to not shave in the morning so a shave has always been part of my morning routine. Since I shave both my head and face daily I was...

It's powerful and can cut through two days of stubble on Mondays just as easily as it does one days worth on Tuesdays. Feels nice in the hand and doesn't get uncomfortable after extended use. I'd have given it 5 eggs if it really was 100% a viable...

It's good but still not as close or as fast as a blade. I still have the same "trouble spots" as I did with a blade and there is no way I can shave in the 3 minutes used to calculate charge intervals in the manufacturer materials

No complaints so far


I don't understand why there are so many good reviews. My cousin used it after me and he complained about the same exact things. I returned it even though there is a %15 restocking fee. It is not worth the time and money.

So many good reviews ; water resistant ; looks cool

It doesn't help with irritation like it was advertised ; My neck hair was still there after going over it 5 times ; It cut me in several places even when I used it gently ; I had to shave with a razor after this to clean up the huge spots that it missed

Panasonic ES8249K Arc IV Shaver


Should have stuck with razors. Reviews are good to read but not always true

Not so great

I thought this would save time but takes more time than a razor, doesn't get everything, you have to use razor to get what it misses

All the other good reviews must be fake


How is this still on the market if it doesn't even work it's like shamwow it works on the commercials but not when you get the product.

the flip up buzzer can cut your sideburns but can a $10 to $20 hair buzzer at walmart

This does not shave like a blade at all. it barely cuts hair at all I don't understand why there are so many good reviews saying that this is great and they will never use a blade they must be fake and/or paid to do it. this is not worth $150 maybe...

So good I had to review it for you


Well, it's been about a year now and I recently replaced the blades for the first time, more out of habit than need. I also just returned from a 10 day tour and didn't need to recharge it the entire trip. I carried the removable charging cord which...

This is the second Panasonic Razor I've owned. The first one lasted for years. I replaced the blades and foil a few times over the years, but when the battery life got shorter I decided to put my money toward an upgrade ; I remember thinking, "how much...

They don't advertise enough to help bring the cost down. Most people don't think of Panasonic when shopping for a razor. They need to fix that. Blades, foils and cleaner could be so much cheaper

Really Nice


Not a huge deal on the default for the cleaning station, but I like to discharge my batteries because I believe it extends the life. This razor is so nice my buddy comes over to my house to use it instead of buying his own.

This is the nicest electric I have ever used. It gets blade close with no irritation in half the time of my old Braun. I have a pretty thick beard and even if I don't shave for 3 days this razor busts right through. The self cleaning station is really...

Battery life could be a bit better. You lose about 10% per shave. Replacement parts (foil, cutting block) are a bit spendy. If you lose power for any reason the default setting for the cleaning station is charge

Although it is a little expensive it is well worth it. I was a blade man before and was tired of spending $15 to $20 on blades each month. I will never use blades again, plus I get razor burn very easy, but not with this thing….wow!!

First electric shaver that does exactly what it was intended to do....shave! It does a great job, and takes about 3 minutes for an entire shave, as long as you shave every day. The self cleaning it nice and it also does a great job

None, so far

Everything you want in a shaver.


Panasonic really knows what they're doing when they're designing a razor, the Arc IV is clear evidence of this.

I'm going to start off by saying that I think this could be the #1 electric razor on the market right now. In fact, I'm very comfortable saying that as a fact, and no I am not paid by Panasonic, I purchased the razor with my own money (though not from...

The self cleaner does not also do my laundry

The best I've found


This razor is fantastic. I have a very thick beard that grows really fast and grows in all different directions. I shave every morning. It takes me a little longer to shave with this than it does with a razor but It is a lot easier on my face. No cuts,...

Nice Looking. Display that shows how much battery is left. Vortex cleaner makes cleanup very easy. You can shave with it in the shower and lather if you want. It has shaving "bars". After using this for a week, I can truly say this thing shaves as...

None Really. Price maybe but I got it on sale
