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. Charging takes only 1 hour and that's good for about 12 shave sessions. Shave quality is very good, I love using this shaver very close shave in no time.
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. The feeling is coming back now after 6 months, but still not totally back so I figured this would be safer shaving. Great after the first time!! I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true.
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. It has a digital battery life remaining gauge. It's a little inaccurate, especially at the lower end (but in a good way).
Summary: I have had the ES8103 for over two years and I am very satisfied with its performance. I shave every day, including the top of my head, and I get about a week's worth of shaves on a charge. It fully charges in about an hour. The one drawback is that it will not work with the cord plugged in. I consider this minor because it charges so quickly. The ability to choose between a fixed or floating head position is a plus. It is not the quickest shave but it does get it close.
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. I use it as a wet shaver and cleanup is a breeze.
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!
Summary: This is a pretty good shaver. However, it takes time and work to get that close shave. It particularly requires multiple passes to get the neck hairs. Because it takes so much time, I only get three to four shaves per charge. Then there's that annoying problem of their not including a cleaning brush....
Summary: Coming from a blade razor this is a good razor for every day use. The "Sideburn Trimmer" is mediocre and is not very good for trimming a mustache or beard. Charge lasts for days and charges quickly. I like the cord that plugs into the bottom as opposed to the stand for the counter. This takes up less space and is lighter for traveling too. Good shaver and good value compared others.
Summary: Got this on sale for my honey. Straight razors aren't his thing, so he's been using the bargain electric shavers that take forever to get the job done. When he first got it, he was scared that it would shave the skin right off his face. The hairs on his face are soft, but they grow in fast and thick. Now he can shave everyday and it only takes a few minutes. He hasn't tried a wet shave but so far has been thrilled with it.
