Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything as expected Battery life is excellent. Get about 8-10 shaves out of full charge. breeze to clean and maintain. hopefully will last for a long time ! love this shaver May 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by ARC series = total value I've had an ARC 3 for quite some time. It works flawlessly. I purchased this ARC 4in advance of the ARC 3 giving up. Used it 1 time and was really happy with it. I re-packed for later use. I have a heavy beard growth and these razors always perform. My new ARC 4 is waiting..... Panasonic has done it again. The best for less..... April 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good value, low features The beard trimmer..the button is so sensitive I'm almost always pressing it as I hold this unit. However, this is a budget shaver that has the same foil, blades, and screen as the expensive units. It shaves great, but it feels flimsy and cheap in your hand. They should just leave that beard trimmer off - it's worthless. April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Panasonic Quality! I love this shaver. It shaves well and doesn't leave any straggler hairs. My old Panasonic may have shaved a fraction closer, maybe a couple of hours worth of growth. Close enough, I'm good with this shaver. The battery lasts about three and a half weeks before the need for recharging! April 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Clean Smooth Shave I had a Pananic razor that shaved better than any other brand. problem was finding the foils and cutters. I looked on Panasonic site and seen that this razor was on sale for less than the cutters or foils would cost. It shaves very smooth and is rather quiet. The trimmer is very fine and not the best feature. For some reason the unit was shipped in two separate boxes. When I recieved the shipment it was very light and upon opening all that was in it was the travel case. Rather disappointed as I thought someone had removed the razor or that I had mistaking only ordered a case instead of a razor and tha case would have been very expensive, The razor arrived two days later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Pleased The shaver works very well. The battery life is great. This is my second Panasonic shaver and the wet shaves leave my face smooth without irritation. March 23, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by POOR CUTTING I tried numerous to shave and all it felt like was the saver was ripping the hair out instead of cutting the hair. I have a light beard and this should not be happening. In addition, it is advertised as having 4 blade cutting system. That is simply not true in my opinion. It has 4 sections on the foil but only 2 cutting blades. I have been an electric shaver user for many many years. January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Recently purchased thru this promotion at 50% off. It is a great shaver that is replacing another Panasonic shaver. It is quieter and gives a smoother and closer shave. Wish that it was compatible with the cleaning and charging system that my old one had. I bought this because I could not find anywhere that sold replacecment heads or screens for my old shaver. Looking at the prices for the replacement heads for this one it is cheaper to buy another shaver and will probably do that when it is time. Have had many other brands of shavers that cost a lot more and none shaves as good as the Panasonic or lasted as long. December 19, 2014
