Previously i had a Braun series 7and 9. Both good shavers. Series 7, close shave but too noisy. Series 9, quieter than the 7 but takes too long to get close. I've only been using the Panasonic for 3 days,so im hoping that in maybe 2-3 weeks after my skin has adjusted to a new shaver, it will be shaving as close as the series 7. Hopefully, I'll be able to get the best of both worlds. The closeness of the 7 but with the quietness of the 9. There's no reason for it not to. An ultra thin foil (how the hell do they manafacture that!) and ultra sharp blades. Fingers crossed!
Recently purchased (Will review again in 6 Months). This is my first Panasonic shaver after using Braun shavers. first impression is that the shaver is very flexible and that the Four cutters leave a very smooth finish, Shaver hold charge well and quiet when in use, only negative would be that this is no cradle to sit the shaver in while charging which has meant leaving the shaver on top of table or on the floor.
Having replaced my2 year old Panasonic shaver with this one, I was just underwhelmed. I expected to feel a really close shave but that was not the case. It does the job. Great battery life.
