Pros: I am amazed by this razor. I've always bought inexpensive razors and through them out when the foil and blades wore out.Curiosity made me buy an expensive one to see if there was truly a difference. Wow.I'm fair hair fair skinned.Could probably get away with shaving every 2nd or 3rd day but choose not to.Always dealt with neck irritation but not with this razor.Hardly have to apply pressure which is probably why there's no irritation.Quick charging and holds a charge ...
Cons: I have zero complaints after several months of use.
Pros: This razor works well on sensitive skin. Foil razors have always caused me to break out and get irritated skin. The trick to this razor is to use the wet shave feature and follow these rules. Shave with gel on your face (yes you can do this) for two weeks. Was your face well before and after each shave. For another two weeks shave without the gel and after that month your skin and face will be used to the foils.
Cons: This razor will require more than one or two passes to shave all of the hair on your face. Many people get miffed about that. Who doesn't have five minutes to shave well. Yes you will have to go over your thick stubble a few times. So what, get over it.
Summary: - still irritates my neck area from time to time, but definitely less than a conventional razor blade
Pros: - requires no preparation, just turn it on and start shaving (with razor blades I usually shaved only after a shower, exclusively with warm water, had to have shaving foam/gel at hand). With this shaver I can shave at anytime.
Cons: - when shaving a bigger beard you have to be careful to avoid pinching (I guess that's pretty normal for an electric shaver)
Pros: Very close shave for an electric. Charges in an hour. Wet or dry. Get a quick smooth shave in less than 3 minutes. I've tried mid priced Brauns, Remington, and Phillips in last three years, and this Panasonic beats them all easily.
Pros: First electric shaver makes me want to never go back. Its very easy on the skin. I can shave dry with this and have less irritation then a normal 5 blade Fusion razor does with shaving cream. Pretty close shave, great battery life, great price, also can use it in the shower if I want.
Summary: I have tried them all over the years. Now my beard is grey and tough I need a product that cuts fast and smooth, this razor does exactly that. So far I have only used it dry, but it cuts perfectly. Would I buy another Panasonic razor again? Most definitely. The build quality is superb.
