Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect! Best razor I ever owned. Very good comfortable shave. Easy to clean. Only problem is on/off button placement sometimes gets hit by mistake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality I have this rasor now for 9 months & I use it every day. I have different other brands before. I just appreciate how smooth & easy to clean this product. No other rasor cut as smooth as this one. I will recommended to my friends. Very satisfied that I bought this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy - Great Quality! I just changed from 40+ years of shaving with a blade and I will never go back! If there is such a thing, this unit brings the joy back to shaving. I get closer shaves in less time than when I used a blade plus no nicks! Also, you can't go wrong with the automatic cleaner and charger. Just place the unit into the charger and set the cycle you want and walk away. I have been checking for over 2 weeks now and when checking the outer foil and inner blades there is no residue at all - just clean, dry and spotless!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Shaver I've ever owned I've had this shaver for about 6 months now. This electric shaves as close as a blade. 1 pass everyday is all you need. The shaver may irritate your face the first week you use it. Don't worry, this will end. Not only does it give a great shave, it's really easy to clean. It comes with a cartridge cleaning system, but I don't use it. A lot of reviews complain about the cleaning cartridge system for this razon, you don't need it. A simple squirt of liquid soap, turn on the hi frequency cleaning mode (just hold the on button down) add a couple of drops of water, let the cleaning cycle complete (about 10 seconds) take the foil off, rinse everything and then stick the razor in the charging stand. Hit the program button once, the drying fan comes on and the next time you shave your razor is perfect. One more note. The first razor I bought would stop running when it reached 70% charge. Panasonic replaced it, no questions asked. The replacement razor works perfectly. I'm very happy with my purchase. I recommended this razor to a good friend, he loves it too!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good razor I switched from a 3 head rotary and would have to say that Overall I am very pleased with this razor. The shave is smooth and close, much easier on my face than the 3-head was. The Trimmer on this razor actually works, and works very well. The 3 head razors I have user were always lacking Only 2 points I would mention for consideration. Went camping and was gone for 8 days…no razor in tow. This one was not up to that task, but that may be any foil razor, and as this is my first foil razor I was not thinking about that very rare situation. But for regular use, this Panasonic is awesome and I will not be going back to the 3 head rotary…makes my face hurt thinking about using rotary again. The other point for this model, is to keep an extra soap cartridge around. In addition to the cleaning soap there is a cleaning medium that over time will stop up. I procrastinated ordering a replacement after installing my last one, and over time the cleaning chamber would not empty. After installing a new cartridge all was well. Seems it pays to follow instructions. All and all I am very pleased with the way this unit works and feels on my face. I hope it never breaks, but if it does, I’ll get another one of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great buy I purchase this shaver as a Christmas gift to myself. I was off work for the holidays for two weeks. I hadn't shaved for over a week. This shaver went through my beard as quickly and easily as a barber using a straight razor. I was impressed. I've owned a number of brands over the years but none have been this easy and efficient to use. Plus the department store had it for $100 less than the MSRP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shaver!! This, I must say, is the best electric razor I have ever owned! I have been using an electric razor for more than twenty eight years and this is the most comfortable razor I have had. I have a very heavey beard also and it has no problems handling my beard. I think it is a little on the pricy side but the razor is great. I am having a little difficulty finding screens and blades locally though.
