Pros: Great shave for sensitive skin. I used to only shave once a week because my face would break out after shaving. With this shave my face does not break out, It is so smooth that after shave does not hurt when applied. I have been shaving almost every day for 2 months on one battery charge.
Cons: Trimmer is small. Like most foil shavers, they do not work well with longer hairs. It does not shave well if you have a few days growth.
Pros: This shaver does a very good job of shaving, first and foremost. Almost as close as a blade, the wife can't tell the difference really. The cleaning/charger station is nice, and the shaver seems to hold a charge very well.
Cons: The base station is very noisy when it is cleaning and/or drying. I am not sure why it needs to run for a few hours when just set to dry. I usually just clean it with soap, then do the whole automatic cleaning about once a week or so. But if you have the station dry the shaver after a manual cleaning, make sure to close the bathroom door at night or it will keep you up, and run for hours just to dry.
Summary: ADVICE: Don't try to wash cleaning base under running water, you will get water inside the fan vents; just gently tap the foil head in the sink and rinse it, then put it in sonic mode (hold power button when you turn it on for 3 seconds) and rinse blades briefly under running water before running shaver through self cleaner - this will make your cartridges last longer, and also fill the water tank with distilled or filtered water; leave shaver in cleaning base for at...
Pros: I actually own the ES-8109, which is this model's predecessor. Aside from the battery meter changing from an LCD to LED's, and the travel lock being added to power switch (which will be useful), it's the same. I've had mine for nearly 6 years, and it's still going strong. I've never changed the blades or foil...ever, and it still gives me a nice smooth shave. I change the cleaning cartridge every 4-6 months, but only shave every 2-3 days on average, and clean it every...
Summary: This new shaver shaves my head really close and smooth with no irritation. I really like the battery percentage display. My last shaver had a short battery life compaired to my previous two shavers (all Panasonic). So, my concern with this shaver is battery life. Initial impression is fantastic. If the battery lasts 2yrs or better as per the manufacturer guarantee, it'll be a five star shaver!
Pros: Compact, Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
For the price, excellent performance and quality (so far)

Summary: I guess the one thing I'm not relatively fond is the changing of the detergent cartridge. I'd much rather there be a way to have like a fill up slot taking away of buying cartridges and maybe just buy replacement fluid at the store instead.
Pros: Locking and rotating head button. (Surprising, makes it a little easier to shave)
Summary: It is recommended to give beard 2 weeks to get used to the shaver. A week of travel and shipping time and you have lost your 30 day window to return this poorly functioning shaver.
Pros: It is a shaver. It should shave. It does not. It leaves random hairs. I would return it if I could.
Cons: I am just over the 30 day return or this would be going back. Shaved with this every day for a month. It leaves random hairs. My son tried it. He shaves every 4 days. It did not shave any whiskers at all. I can not believe the kinds of reviews this thing gets. My experience has been very bad.
Awesome product, but no manufacturer warranty for Canada!

Summary: Again, great product for the price paid. Any product I purchase in Canada I want to have a manufacturer warranty for it. Through examining the packaging and by doing research, it appears as though this product isn't even supposed to be available to Canada. If and when I do need replacement parts, I hope it is not a hassle. Despite all this I look forward to using this product. I have found many great deals from newegg.ca, and look forward to finding many more.
Pros: Wet/Dry Shave capable, pivoting head, pop up trimmer,fast motor drive, self cleaning mode, automatic cleaning and charging system. Can do 14 3-minute shaves before recharge, which takes about an hour if drained. Used for a few days and it is awesome to use so far. Takes a month for facial skin to get used to new shaving system. Awesome shaver for the price I paid. Automatic cleaning system works good. I prefer dry shave over wet shave, less hassle to clean the shaver ...
Cons: Box states that there is a 2-year limited warranty (U.S. only). When you examine the contents of the box, it appears as though the shaver is only to be sold in the U.S.A. and Puerto Rico. I contacted Panasonic Canada to find out about the warranty and where I can get replacement parts (parts clearly shown on a pamphlet in the box). Panasonic Canada states that newegg.ca is not an authorised dealer for Panasonic Canada, and that the product would have no valid warranty...
Summary: I bought this shaver with high hopes. However, I cannot get a close shave and I have a light beard! I'm going to buy some Afta pre-shave gel and see if that helps. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
Pros: Easy to handle. Well-made, durable. Easy to clean. Medium noise level.
Cons: Must shave back and forth five or more times to get a fairly decent shave.
