Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Do yourself a favor and buy this razor! The battery in my old Panasonic ES-8066 just died after about 17 years of faithful service. I wasn't looking forward to having to replace it because none of the electric razors currently on the market appealed to me. But I knew whatever I bought would be a Panasonic, because out of the many, many different brands of electric razors that I've purchased over the years, Panasonic was the only manufacturer to explain in the operator's manual that any electric razor will not give you a good shave immediately, and that you have to stick with it for a few weeks before noticing the full benefit. If only "Brown" (if you're German) or "Noelco" (if you're French) had bothered to tell me that 30 years ago! (Glad I read the review-writing tips before submitting - I was going to mention the actual company names.) I read all of the reviews here that said this particular model was the best razor on the market, and they are all absolutely, 100% true. I've been shaving for almost 40 years now, and the very first time I used this razor was the first time in all those years I had absolutely no skin irritation, burning, breakouts, etc. No stinging from just the hot water hitting my face and neck when I got in the shower right after shaving. The first totally painless shave I've had in my life - and with the automatic beard thickness sensor, it was at least as close as a brand new blade, if not closer. Go ahead and complain about the eye-wateringly high price - but first have a sit down and calculate how much you will have spent on blades in the 10+ years this thing will probably last. So, even at this price, it's a bargain to boot! March 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Price and performance I purchased this razor to replaced my old Arc razor which was having problem changing. I think the battery is at the end of life and not worth to replace just the battery. I am very happy with my old and new Panasonic razor. It is nice and smooth and gives me a comfortable shave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shaver This is my second panasonic shaver, last one was an Arc 3, which I had for about 4 years. I bought the Arc 5 primarily because I wanted a new shaver and the Arc 3 was starting to degrade (battery life and closeness of shave). Although I could have just reordered a new blade for the Arc 3, like I said earlier, I wanted a new shaver. Well, I am happy I pulled the trigger on the Arc 5, it is quiet, the battery power is great (charge every 3 weeks) and it shaves really well (cut my shaving time by more than half). It's expensive, but worth it. February 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The closest machine to Gillette razors I was at first quite skeptical about buying this panasonic ES-LV65-S as I thought nothing come close to the actual razor blade. I was wrong. Although, Gillette Fusion razors, the product I have been using for years, still have an slight edge over the electric razors, however, this unit come extremely close. What makes it superior is the convenience of using it anywhere; in the shower, in front of the sink, while in the car going to work and travelling. Cleaning is easy too, just rinse it as instructed. Completely satisfied with the result. February 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best yet. I have owned many Wet/Dry razors over the years, most from Panasonic, but also several from other well known brands. I have never been as impressed and pleased with a purchase as I am with this model. It truly shaves more closely, comfortably and quickly than any others I have used. It does not have all kinds of useless bells and whistles - simply does the job it was designed for extremely well. Easy to charge, easy to use, easy to clean. What else could I want. I am very happy that this item was on sale and that I decided to go for it! January 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shaver out there I can not believe an electric shaver could shave so close and so comfortably. Nearest shave to a blade I could find. January 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best on the market Best shave I have had in years. The closest shave you can have without using a blade January 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Shaver I have had Panasonic shavers in the past but this one far exceeds the performance of the others. It shaves close, fast and comfortably. Battery life is very good, in my case a week and a half before I have to charge it. This shaver outperforms any shaver I have ever purchased. I highly recommend it to anyone considering purchasing a new shaver. January 1, 2016
