Summary: Needs recharging every 3 days with 5 min shaves. It is a close shaver but the 4 blades is a gimmick. I have had better luck with the Panasonic dual head shavers. On the plus side, it seems a bit easier to clean with this one.
Summary: Because I have baby face skin with very dark whiskers, I have a hard time finding a razor of any kind that works for me. With most razors, I show a shadow a few hours later, other than with some blade razors. I also get razor burn really easily, even from blades, and with blades I seem to get micro-cuts pretty easily. So, I've been using electrics for years, but none ever really were right. Have tried a whole range of rotaries and foil razors.
Pros: Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: Being a black man I fight with razor bumps.I have never owned an elctric shaver.First time I had a shave with one was from my barbar and I was impressed.This shave is the bomb. I gave it a 3 on value because it is expensive and the repalcement parts are not cheap.But,you get what you pay for.
Pros: Compact, Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: This shaver is loaded with problems. It shaves but very poorly because it takes too many passes for one to get close to a good shave. If you shave today tomorrow you will have to do it again plus it leaves hair on your face regardless of the amount of time spent trying to get a good shave from this machine. Panasonic should look into this problem and solve it promptly.
Summary: This shaver gives a smooth fast shave with almost no pull or noise. Chief drawback is that after about 9 hours I need another shave, which is a much shorter duration than my previous shavers. I don't know why this is. Probably it is because although the shaver does very well on the surface, it does not dig deeper to clip the hair well below. Consequently, the hair grows back quickly.
Pros: Compact, Convenient, Easy to use, smooth shave
Cons: Did not meet expectations, shave not long lasting
