Panasonic ES-LV9Q 5 Blade Wet & Dry Men's Electric Shaver Reviews

Blown away!

I have just purchased this 3rd Gen Arc 5 ES-LV9Q shaver after a lot of research and trawling through review after review and comparisons with the Braun 7 & 9 series but I have to say I am blown away! I have read all of the arguments and appreciate that shaving is a very personal experience and I personally like to wet shave with cream or gel with my electric razors. I had heard about the ease of cleaning with Panasonic versus Braun and not having the need to clean the head before using the cleaning station and this was a strong factor in which system I chose. I also read about how the Panasonic is not as comfortable as the Braun but gives a closer shave Well I decided what was important to me and went for this model and I have been amazed at how close and comfortable this system is and is as good as I can get with a disposable razor I currently use a Philips 9000 series rotary wet and nearly always have to double shave with a blade to get anywhere near a close shave I use Proraso shaving cream with a light lather and literally within 1 to 2 mins I have finished with an incredibly smooth shave and then pop it in the cleaning station and I am done!! I would absolutely recommend this product as the build quality is first class and the looks are very good in my opinion. If I had to look for any criticism it is a little more bulky than I am used to but not heavy so I am sure I will soon get used to this - certainly not a reason not buy I would like to see a better quality carry case for such a premium product as the soft case is a little flimsy and looks a bit 'cheap' I have seen hard case on Amazon but they are over £30 so quite expensive - if Panasonic want to send me one to trial I wold be very happy to add to this review ;oP Overall highly recommended would buy again but please do your own research as you need to be aware of the model numbers and generations of all the major products. very close and quick shave that is also very quiet. Price is high but it looks like you get what you pay for!

Fast and close shave

A fast, close shave that leaves rotary shavers in it's wake.

Brains over Braun, Panasonic’s just the tonic!

No disrespect to Braun - for many they are THE name, when it comes to electric razors - but they have been massively outgunned by Panasonic. I have tried a great deal of shavers from a variety of manufacturers over the years, but this one tops the lot, no question. Innovative, super close, skin-caressingly comfortable and stylish; you can hardly fail to be delighted with this baby. Thanks to the LV9Q, shaving is a chore no more; it’s pure pleasure. One last word of thanks - last but by no means least - to Shavers themselves. Always with the speedy service, cheerful helpfulness and great, great value. Thank you very much indeed, as ever.
