Summary: When new this was the best electric razor I've ever owned, giving a quick, comfortable and close shave. In the last several months the number of shaves possible before needing charging has decreased and now I get only two shaves between charges. This would not matter so much if it was possible to use the razor while charging but you can't.
Summary: This razor has never really given a good shave, always leaving some stubble and often leaving patches unshaved. The battery has lost capacity quite quickly and the low battery light packed in after three months. Cheap chinese made rubbish. Back to Phillips for me, they are more expensive, but at least they work.
Summary: Why not have both? I've had this razor for about 2 weeks ,and am delighted with it.My facial hair is not very heavy as I am blond but my last electric razor was a Braun and I would not for various reasons have another. The price is also fantastic as is the price. It can also be used with lather which I have yet to try as in my case I can see no point.
Summary: I purchased this shaver approximately three months ago have tired of wet shaving mainly as I seemed to be cutting myself more often than in the past! I went for the Panasonic mainly on the basis of Amazon reviews which on balance seemed highly favourable. This shaver gives an excellent shave; I use it dry and have now dispensed with pre-electric lotion as I am getting just as good a shave without it and thus can save a few pounds!
