Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best electric shaver I have ever owned I am recommending this to a co-worker and my family doctor, both of whom -- like me -- despise shaving with a straight-edge razor -- disposable or otherwise. Since puberty, I used an electric razor with the three circular heads configuration, which never really gave me a close shave, and didn't deal well with a weekend's worth of "lazy growth" that needed to come off on Monday morning. After too many painful experiences with disposable razor blades followed up with my old tri-head electric shaver, my wife finally researched what was out there and came up with the Panasonic ES8243A, which is what I am now using, and which is well worth the money spent. It's easy to use, cleans by running it in a stream of water -- shower or faucet, fully charges in only an hour, and easily tackles a full weekend of "lazy growth" beard without the need for using a disposable razor first -- or as post-shave clean-up. I would highly recommend this shaver to anyone who hates to shave but needs to. It has made shaving enjoyable for me once again after years of pain and angst. My version of this model also tells you when it's time to clean it, and how much of a charge -- in percent -- you have left every time you complete a shave, so you always know how close you are to needing to charge it. It dead simple to take apart -- there is only the head and the plastic cover -- quite unlike the tri-head shaver configuration which almost requires some kind of mechanical expertise to disassemble, clean, and reassemble. There are more expensive versions of the shaver I got that apparently self-sharpen, etc. November 25, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by So far this is one of the smoothest shaver I've ever used. I like that it doesn't take long to recharge as well. August 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good shaver for home and travel I bought this shaver to replace an old one because I was going to Europe over the summer and wanted something that would handle U.S. and foreign country power supplies. It works very well. I need to recharge after 4 shaves as I use it once a week for 15 to 20 minutes. Easy to clean and to recharge. Would be nice to have bigger carry case that hold charger unit.
