reliable

  • Summary: I've owned this model for four years now and have replaced the blades 5 or 6 time and the foil once. The charge still holds for over a week. This is the best electric shaver I've owned.
  • Pros: Quick comfortable shave
  • Cons: None

Don't waste a penny on this

  • 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?

User Review

  • Summary: My previous shaver worked as well or better than this one, and the replacement parts were cheaper, but it cost several times the amount of this one, so overall value is pretty good. Wish the replacement parts were less costly. Actual rating more around a 4.5 egger.
  • Pros: Gives a good shave when used wet. Display tells percentage of battery available and when the sonic cleaning mode should be used. Works well with whiskers that are several days old. Finally at the point where the blades MUST be replaced and it has been used for 11 months. Probably should have repl...
  • Cons: Takes much longer to get a close shave when used dry. Can't use when plugged in, so make sure you have enough charge for a shave. Replacement blades/foil are rather pricey.

Underpowered, weak motor

Kenneth P., Newegg
19 February 2013
  • Pros: -No worries about getting it wet -Easy to clean
  • Cons: -Motor is underpowered, causing pop-up trimmer to jam, ripping the hair off your face -Doesn't have the power to shave your face after ~48 hours of hair growth -Battery life is disappointing. If your facial hair is long, one shave drains the battery

Panasonic Arc IV shaver

Michael R., Newegg
11 February 2013
  • Summary: I got a gift certificate from my son for Christmas so when I saw this come on sale I grabbed it. The reviews for the shaver were excellent, and now I'm glad I got it. On a full charge I got nine 3 minute shaves before it reached the 30% charge mark.
  • Pros: Gives a fast close shave. Not very noisey at all compared to other shavers. Got 9 shaves before it had to be charged. Works best wet and with lather, but gives an acceptable dry shave.
  • Cons: None that I found in over two weeks of normal use.

Works great close shave

Rich R., Newegg

  • Summary: I have used foil shavers for a long time. This is a nice upgrade.
  • Pros: This shaver is a buy. I bought because the 4 cutting heads, and the linear motor (13,000 rpm). Included is a 2 year warranty. gives a nice close shave, picks up the stray hairs others leave behind. The trimmer works better than any I have used.
  • Cons: None, really impressed with the product

much better than my el-cheapo panasonic

  • 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.
  • Pros: Quick Charging Time, Requires Few Strokes
