Summary: By FAR better than any rotary I've ever tried, wet or dry. Precision, up until I purchased this shaver was lost on me. However, the main complaint I've had, and continue to have since I've dabbled in the realm of electric shavers is the fact that for all the advancements in technology, and progressively better performance in the past 15 years since I've been using them, is that there isn't one out there(within my budget?
Pros: Inexpensive, Durable, Convenient
Cons: Did not meet expectations, Difficult to use, not blade close, takes way more than 3 minutes
Summary: After 3 years of fast and comfortable wet shaving with cream and a badger brush (I have a very thick beard), my Arc 4's battery suddenly dropped dead. The LED battery display already "went south" a year before, but the charge lasts so long that no display did not matter. Faced with having to endure disposable razor slices and nicks, I went online to see the price of a new Arc 4, as well as an Arc 5 and some of its brand competitors.
Summary: I've been using electric razors for almost 15 years. This 4 head model is the best I've used. It's way better than the rotating head type. The reviews about bad shaves and neck burn is how I would review those. This razor is way better than the 3 head model that is a step down. Don't bother with the black one that comes with the washer. Not worth the extra money.
Summary: I shave my head and face every day with this razor, and it has worked very well. When researching this razor, Panasonic information recommended against shaving the head with it. I took a chance and bought it anyway, and it has worked just fine. I have been using it over 1.5 years now and finally am to the point where I need to replace the blade. With the additional shaving I do (head), I figure the blade is good for 3 years for shaving just the face.
Pros: Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: I bought this razor to replace my 5th Rotary Shaver I have owned in the last 20+ years. I bought it after doing allot of research on electric shaver, both rotary & foil. The features of this razor far out number the other brands! The Wet/Dry Feature AND the Easy Cleaning are the things that most appealed to me. After using it for a few days I noticed it was a closer shave than a rotary style! It is much smoother (especially when shaving wet!
Pros: Convenient, Easy to use, love the wet/dry feature, easy to clean!!!!!!
Summary: My very first electric razor and without a doubt, its a very close shave. All the reviews you read and hear are true. Used it in the shower with shaving cream for the closest shave and it did not disappoint. Sadly it did disappoint with my neck area. I had to use it a few times over the neck area but my understanding is its the case with all electric razors (SADLY).
вряд ли найдете что-то лучшее (на данный момент...)

Summary: пользуюсь бритвой больше года... но так и не наловчился начисто выбривать область в районе подбородка.... в то время как станком это получается сделать за 3 секунды.... но это для любителей бриться до "синевы". по отзывам, у других электробритв с этим дело обстоит еще хуже... а так, для того, чтобы визуально получить "выбритый вид" достаточно 3-х минут... причем это безо всякого намыливания-смывания (хотя, при желании, можно конечно бриться и с пеной).
