Summary: After being a loyal Braun shaver user for over 12 years, I decided to returning my recently purchased Braun 700 series shaver for various reasons. I choose the Panasonic based on product reviews and price.
Summary: Saves me a TON of razor blades. Paid for itself 100x over. I used to go through a blade (Gillette Fusion, not cheap....) at least every 3-4 days. Now a blade literally last weeks.
Pros: Had this thing for several years now. Still holds a decent charge, I have replaced the blade twice. It has been dropped in the shower, used wet, dry, and still runs great. Gets decently close, and you could use it as your primary shaver, but I use it go get a majority of the hair off and finish u...
Cons: Flip out edge trimmer on the back wore out, doesn't really cut anymore.
Summary: I bought this shaver from Walmart for a lot more money, I believe I paid $109.00 now is it is a lot cheaper. But that doesn't matter ths shaver s great, if fact I owned others and they where allways a pain too clean, not this shaver clean up Is super easy to do a monkey can do it.
Summary: I haven't had an electric razor for a very long time. After Carotid Artery surgery I was left with a scar and a numb neck. This made for precarious shaving on that side of my neck. I cut myself very easily due to not having the feeling I used to have.
Summary: I have had multiple models from just about every major brand, many costing 2.5 to 3 times the price of this unit. Close shaves. Easy to use, clean and charge. Like any electric shaver, it generally requires multiple passes, especially on the neck. Amazing battery life.
Summary: I didn't know what to expect from this shaver at first but after I tried it.....I am a believer. The power of this shaver is very good and it's not too heavy in either hand. I'm an Afro American male and the closeness of the shave is the most confortable I've come across in a electric razor.
Summary: My job requires that I shave daily and I bought this because I HATE shaving with disposable razors. I bought this after a lot of research and it works great. I get a decently close shave and the trimmer is great for my goatee.
Pros: A close, easy shave and it's super easy to clean. Best electric razor I've ever owned.
Cons: Loud, very loud... and the replacement blades are expensive.
Summary: Shaves pretty close but not as close as the 8109. No self cleaning system...thats kind of a bummer. But that will save you over $100. Charges last a few days. Panasonic makes the best wet & dry razors!
