Pros: By far the best razor I've owned. I've owned Remington and Braun razors, and this one beats them in every way. Closest shave, much faster, and no pulling out hair. Even if you go a few days between shaves, it still works great.
Cons: The only con so far is that it is a bit louder than my previous razors. But not a big deal. Sounds a bit like one of my girlfriends toys, ha ha.
Summary: I researched this item very well before buying. NEWEGG by far had the best deal I could find. If you want to own a really great razor without taking out a 2nd mortgage, strongly suggest you consider this one. BTW, you do NOT need to buy the cleaner kit, Just get some hand soap and follow the easy directions to clean it. Very easy and quick to do.
Pros: First of all, credit to NEWEGG for getting this to me in one day without even paying for higher shipping! Great job folks!. The razor is incredible. I've read excellent reviews and had my doubts about them, not any more. Seriously, this is the best electric razor I've ever owned. It's light, well-balanced, and very easy to use. Charges less than an hour. For me, it was even great the first time I used it.
Summary: one disadvantage is it doesn't work on charger, have to charge battery first than shave, charging quickly. After 1 year blade and mesh has to be replaced (80eur) according to manual. I dont use it everyday cause im lasy and i combine it gillette blades so it is still fine.
Summary: I was a bit reluctant to spend so much money on a shaver, but the reviews are true. I actually have a smooth face after shaving, something I usually only get on a wet shave. Worth the money, and much better than my phillishave.
Summary: Having read many reviews and considered the more expensive self-clean versions, I tentatively started to shave this morning wondering if this relatively costly shaver would prove a flop. You cannot try before you buy with shavers! Normally with my old self-cleaning Braun 7785 shaving took up to 4 minutes. I stopped shaving at 1 minute 40seconds and did a double take at the screen timer.
Summary: Before owning both the Braun series 7 and this one - I had never owned an electric shaver before. But, as I have started shaving my head also - I decided to cut down some time and buy a really good foil shaver. After obsessive research on here, online reviews, youtube videos etc etc... I found the Braun and the Panasonic are regarded as giving the best shave and are in a league of their own when it comes to shaving performance. So, I tested them both... And yes, I agree.
Summary: I purchased this electric shaver about 3 months back, and I have been using it every day since. I am 64 and I have been using electric shavers all of my life since, I was 16, I have tried them all, and for the past 20 years have been using top of the range Philishaves. This razor is way ahead of the rest, its quicker, smoother, doesnt pull the hairs on your neck, and really gives the closest shave I have had from a electric razor.
Summary: I purchased this from another retailer, not Amazon and saved a few pounds. This is a good quality shaver with a solid feel. I've tried Braun, Philips and Remington electrics and I've not been satisfied with any of them. It took a long time to shave and they always missed significant patches. some of them developed faults very quickly. Simply put, this Panasonic gives me a close shave in no time at all that does't irritate my skin.
Summary: I shave for either enjoyment or speed. At the weekends I choose between a Merkur Futur, Weber DLC, vintage Gillette Fatboy or the like, stick in a feather blade and lather up with a TOBS badger brush and a little Colonel Conk .. See Badger and Blade for a decode! However in the week I'm up at 0530 and every minute in bed counts. I refuse to pay for cartridge blades and that's where the Panasonic comes in.
