Summary: I'm loving this razor! I've had Brauns before and have been using Mach III and Edge gel for the last year. Bought a Norelco at Costco and took it back after 1 try. Felt cheap and not very high rpm. It doesn't lose its charge until after a week and I like the fact that the razor on day 7 is as fast as on day 1. It doesn't lose any speed by unplugging it either.
Summary: Product arrived and was defective even after using it is barely shaved any hair at all. Probably defective blades or something. I mean it didn't cut at all. I looked to make sure there were blades inside it. There were. Overall this felt very cheaply made with the part that holds the foil feeling very flimsy. I had bought this for a travel razor since my Braun 9595 needs that blue flammable liquid and you can't take that on a plane. I guess I'll stick with Braun.
Summary: This is a great shaver. I owned a Panasonic linear motor shaver 5 years ago, then switched to Norelco and now switched back to Panasonic. I love the ease of shave, floating heads, and almost everything about this shaver - except the trimmer, which is kinda small. Overall great product and 100% worth the money.
Summary: I've gone through several shavers from different brands. This one works as well as a shaver twice the price. I don't miss having to buy the cleaning fluid for the Braun units I owned. Only nits - This shaver cannot be used while it is charging. So if you forget to charge it and it quits mid-shave, you'll have to plug it in and wait about 15 minutes while you walk around with half a beard!
Summary: I was using a Norelco shaver with 3 heads for about 8 years. I started to develop severe irritation on my face and that's when I realized it was time for a new shaver. Since I shave pretty much every day, I figured a shaver is a good item to invest a little money in so i purchased this one. I also liked the fact that I could shave wet because I wanted to in order to eliminate the irritation my face had from the Norelco dry process.
Summary: Having a Wahl for 14 years, I was reluctant to change but glad I did. This razor has been excellent in my first 2 weeks of use, almost fun to shave with, very quite and shaves very close. For this razor to be this good, makes me wonder how the more expensive Panasonic razor could top it. Almost now wish I would have gone a step further and bought it.
Summary: Shaving is a highly subjective experience, and hair and skin texture varies widely, but this shaver is perfect for me. I've tried several electric shavers in the past (Norelco) but my sensitive skin simply couldn't tolerate them for more than a week or two. I had been using a Gillette Fusion, and didn't think any electric shaver could get close to the smoothness that it produced. Well, this Panasonic accomplishes that for me.
Summary: I bought this shaver as a result of the recommendations posted on Amazon. I was tired of paying Gillette a small fortune for blades. I must admit that the first week my shaves were less than close and I was skeptical about the manufacturers advise to wait for my face and beard to adapt. I have owned the shaver for 30+ days; the shaves improved as time went on (maybe I just learned how to use the device better)but IT IS NOT as close as a blade shave.
Summary: I am coming from an older high end Panasonic shaver. This one is lighter, cuts faster, charges very fast, and gives an excellent shave. I'd say it actually gives credence to the old saw "Shaves as close as a blade". The shaver comes with a carrying case along with the power cord. My previous shaver had a charging stand and could be charged while wet. This one is a direct connect, so is not quite as "safe" but works well and makes the whole package less bulky.
Summary: I have never found an electric razor that can give my heavy beard the close shave that I would like to have. I had been using a Remington MS3 1000 for a long time and thought the Panasonic might be better but so far it has been about the same. I have tried blades but they don't treat my skin very well and are more expensive. I will keep the Panasonic in hopes that it will be satisfactory over time.
