Summary: I'm using this razor dry. It's not quite blade and shaving cream close, but it's not that far from it. As the directions say, it takes getting use to. But, it's much quicker and easier to use in the morning than the old fashion way.
Pros: Easy to Use, No Irritation, Quick Charging Time
Summary: After having wasted money on other supposedly wet/dry electric shavers I have finally found a true value for the money!!! I had purchased a Panasonic ES-8066 about fifteen years ago and although it still works great I thought I should maybe purchase a replacement just in case the ES-8066 gave up the ghost. (Hasn't happened yet and I still use it about three times a week.
Summary: I have always been a Remington guy, so to buy a Panasonic was a step of faith. The first thing I noticed was how quiet it is. The second was how quickly I'm able to get a good shave. I also like the small carrying pouch...it fits in my toilet kit nicely. Overall, a nice step up from my Remington Titanium.
Summary: I bought this product from local Best Buy since I was traveling overseas and didn't have time to get it shipped from online stores. I selected this product based on the positive reviews at this site, but I was totally disappointed with this first electric shaver of mine. Even though they recommend that one try the new shaver for at least a month, five days were more than I could handle.
Summary: I purchased this shaver for a Father's Day gift for my dad. He cannot say enough about the tremendous, close shave. Also, he finds the digital battery level display to be helpful in making sure he always has enough charge. It has versatile wet or dry shaving capabilities, with equally high quality results. Comfortable to use, easy to clean, happy to have.
Summary: I've been using this razor for a few weeks now and I'm quite satisfied. It operates smoothly, has plenty of power and speed, the % remaining display is helpful, and it charges quickly (I've only had to charge it once since the initial charge). The wet/dry feature seems to work well, I'm able to clean it much easier than my old razor. I also do seem to get a better shave when wet. Complaints: Fairly minor, but I don't find the tilt action of the head very useful.
Summary: The shaver that he was using did not cut close enough and his face was always sore from repeated rubbing. I bought him this Panasonic with the foils and he was so happy, he now gets the close shave he wants with so much less effort. He was impressed with the battery life and likes the battery indicater number light. All in all this was a great value.
Summary: Although it may not be very powerful, but it's a perfect fit for me. The only drawback is that although it has an LED screen for showing the battery, but it could show only 5 levels: 100%, 80%, 60%, 40%, 20%. Why bother to have a screen!
Summary: I bought this as a "backup" and for the trimmer. It works great. Don't know what it would be like for the main razor as I use a regular blade, but for trimming and getting those spots I missed, it works well. Holds a charge well. But then again, I only use it for 30 sec per day.
