Summary: I have owned alot of shavers in my day, the last one was the norelco with the nivia, this is by far the best one I have ever used. Am very happy about this product, had a wahl that was similar and the panasonic kicks its [...]! I had a older panasonic that I hated and was worried when I bought this (great deal on amazon was the only reason)that I was making a big mistake but it didnt dissapoint in the least.
Summary: I purchased the Panasonic ES8243A about a month ago. I am absolutely satisfied with this product, use wet and dry method and get a close shave every time. If your looking at this razo..do not hesitate...BUY IT!
Summary: I've always been a fan of the Panasonic razors and had one prior to this model for over 2 years. Just wanting to see what the future of shaving was, I cast aside my perfectly good but aging electric and, based on the reviews on Amazon and my belief in the Panasonic product line, purchased this model. Within the first minute of use, I knew this was the ultimate shaving experience. I have a heavy beard that wants to (and does), grow in many directions.
Summary: I got this for my husband for his birthay in June. He LOVED it right out of the box and two months later he still thinks it's awesome!! He has a heavy beard and sensitive skin and has had a hard time finding a shaver that will work for him. This one seems to have the perfect combo of close shave without irritating his skin.
Summary: I have been using Panasonic Electric Shavers for over ten years and have been fairly satisfied with them. This model is far superior to the previous ones, giving a closer shave in a shorter period of time, with a greater degree of comfort. I would recommend this model to both electric shaver users and those who use blades.
Summary: So, I've never been one to get an extremely good shave, although the 5 blade jobs have come pretty close (pun intended). I switched (back) to electric after my dermatologist told me to in order to alleviate some skin problems. I've had many electrics, including older rotary and a recent straight foil shaver. None of them did a particularly good job, and nowhere near as good as the Mach razors. Well, this Panasonic completely changed my expectations.
Summary: I was cautiously optimistic about the performance of the shaver when I ordered it. It shaves as close as a blade and performs better than I expected! quiet comfortable to hold and the floating head maked it a breaze to use. I highly recommend it.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) Before I ordered this product, I read several of the reviews on Amazon for this product. I must admit, when I read people raving about products, I am usually a little skeptical. Well, the razor arrived and I read the instruction and charged it. So far, so good. The next morning I used it to shave for the first time. What an amazing result! I could not believe how close the shave was!
Summary: This shaver is by far the best I have ever used. I have sensitive skin and had a Braun series 5 for a couple years and thought it was nice, but after trying the Panasonic it is no contest. The Panasonic is quieter, faster, and shaves closer. I can't believe how smooth my face is! Clean up is awesome.....just a little soap and water and you are done. I use it dry, but it can be used wet.
Summary: I bought this Panasonic model for traveling, and it hasn't disappointed me. It's compact, lightweight, and the wet/dry capability makes it easy to clean under the tap. It gives a nice, comfortable shave, although not quite with one pass as claimed. For this reason I use a top model Braun shaver at home, which does shave more closely but is charged and cleaned in a cradle that is too bulky for traveling. In short, as a travel shaver, I give this model a high rating!
