Summary: I have the ES8243 for over a year now, and I regret ever buying it. It is a terrible shaver, What a mistake!!! Sure it works either wet or dry, but does not shave in either condition: It does not pick up stubble unless it is perfectly perpendicular to the skin. And the Trimmer? it folds back to the closed position if you apply any side pressure whatsoever, so it is useless.
Excerpt: This is the best shaver I've used. None (including this one) have been able to get some of the flush hairs on my face, but this one leaves the fewest. The best thing is that with the 4 heads my shaving time is only about 4-5 minutes. I have not tried it in the shower or with shave gel. Perhaps that'll help 'lift' the stubborn hairs. Regardless, I'd still get this again. I gave it 5 stars as I rounded up. I've not found an inexpensive 5 star, but this is close.
Excerpt: I did my homework and researched this product before my purchase... read all reviews and then placed my order with J&R of NYC... 5 stars to J&R!!!<br />They made it easy to order and shipped really fast.<br />I'm very happy with my new Panasonic ES8243A Arc IV Nano Men's Wet/Dry Rechargeable Shaver.
Pros: Close Shave, Compact, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Quick Charging Time, Quiet, Requires Few Strokes
Excerpt: So far, so good. I bought this to replace my Braun and this one shaves much, much closer. I liked that the Braun had a holder to recharge and clean itself but at times, I felt a little unsure of how clean it was getting. During the clean cycle, it seemed to twist the razor so I think this one will work well.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Reliable
