This shaver is just perfect in terms of its shave. It replaced a Braun Series 7 which I thought was pretty good. The Panasonic is a whole new level of close and comfort. I use it on my head to and it's the first time I have had a truly smooth shave on my face and head. Highly recommend the shaver. The service from shavers.co.uk was great too. Next day delivery as promised in good packaging. All perfect.
1. Service from Olympic Shaver Centre: Excellent. Expensive but reasonable discount included. Prompt responses to email queries Delivered within 24 hours despite ordering after 2.30pm 2. Product likes: Excellent build quality. This model ESLV9Q has metal down each side of front. Comfortable to hold and use. Quick close shave. About 1 minute quicker than the rotary type I have used in past. Closest shave I have experienced from a shaver. I only use it dry. Useful information display including battery status and shaving time taken, Useful built in side trimmer. Philips rotary seem to have stopped having built in trimmers and rely on exchangeable heads. Easy to clean with brush provided. Impressive cleaning system. I manually cleaned dry with brush during week then used the cleaning system at the end of week. The shaver head was spotless. Have yet to see how long a sachet of fluid lasts. 3. Suggested improvements: The foil head I found difficult to handle once released from the shaver for cleaning. The streamlined shape made it difficult to hold without touching the foils. The sachets of cleaning fluid seem too expensive and not readily available in the shops which means ordering online.
I previously had the ES-LV65 for some years and although very happy with it I wanted to upgrade it. Although I carried out internet reviews I was very happy when the new ES LV9Q arrived with its cleaning and charging station. The shaver moves around the contours of my face much easier than the old shaver and therefore takes less time to get that close shave. The price from shavers.co.uk was also the best I could find and delivery was free of charge the next day.
