Summary: The four blade razor works great, much better than my old three blade. Battery charges quickly and I prefer the LEDs vs LCDs comments added 3/10/14.....screen broke, cost to replace was too much, so bought a Norelco AT830 instead, much closer shave and faster shave than the Panasonic and Braun shavers I've owned.
Summary: After 6 months of use, I can speak from my experience of the item. Great battery life. Durable construction and easy to hold, use and clean. The head is flexible and still solidly built. I never replaced any part so do not know costs there. However, I never got a really close shave with this without a lots of skin stretching and repetitions. Having a goatee meant it was not a big problem. Shaving took time but I eventually got there.
Summary: This shaver is OK but nothing special. I have had Remingtons and Ronsons for about 35 years and no way does this match their power. I agree with one of the other reviewers that the shaver drags the stubble - particularly the mouchtache area. It does take a longer to shave than any Remington I have owned but it gets there in the end. I got this at a bargain price of just under £60 as it was £169 - no way is this worth any more than £60-70.........
Summary: After many years happily using various Philishaver models, I purchased the Panasonic shaver in Nov. 2012. I am fair-haired (OK, white, to be truthful) and do not have a heavy growth. For the first three or four months, I thought it was the best-ever but fairly soon I found each shave was taking longer and giving less satisfactory results, even after cleaning and lubricating.
Summary: I was looking for a dual head razor and this was one at an affordable price. As with other user reports it does what is required but with some lack of result and the beard trimmer is too small and difficult to use. So all in all is adequate but not great.
Summary: I use this shaver to shave my head every other day. I bought it to replace a six or seven year old philishave rotary shaver, so that's my benchmark for this review. Overall, the shave is faster and better, but the overall experience of this product is more mixed. Compared to the philishave, the panasonic shaves my head (which is fairly large and thick-haired) in about half the time, and to a noticeably smoother finish. It is also better on longer hair (3 or 4 days).
Summary: After years or so of using rotary electric shavers I felt it was time to try another type of electric shaver. I opted to purchase the Panasonic ES-RF31, which arrived on time and well packed as is the norm for Amazon deliveries. The shaver is a tad bulkier than other electric razors I've used, and the pop up trimmer is a lot smaller than other electric shavers I've had - also at certain angles, the size of the shaving head can obscure the trimmer.
Excerpt: Купил, потому, что от станка раздражение, бриться им могу не часто, а щетина очень жесткая и растет быстро. Этой бритвой я могу бриться чаще, но раздражение хоть и иного плана чем при бритье станком все равно присутствует. Считаю, что 4 бритвенные головки не нужны (брить усы не удобно, приходится наклонять и брить с помощью одной головки), нужно было купить модели с такими же характеристиками, но с 3 бритвенными головками.
Pros: 1. Неплохо бреет (хоть и похуже станка). 2. Могу ей бриться через день (станком только через два). 3. Сухое бритье для меня все таки удобней.
Cons: 1. Раздражение осталось и после месяца бритья (лицо ужасно чешется, после станка все щипало). 2. По времени достаточно затратно. 3. Тяжело брить шею и усы. 4. Тяжело промывается сетка. 5. Дорогие комплектующие. 6. Обязательно тщательно сушить после мойки, иначе останется ужасный запах.
