Splashed out on this as my old razors where getting tired and not cutting as well. First cut with this one and it really was the best I would recommend this one to anyone
My 14 year old shaver was a Panasonic and it served me very well (still going strong to be fair) but I had only replaced the blade and screen once (about 9 years ago) and given the cost of new blades I decided it was time to upgrade. The new Panasonic gives a slightly smoother shave in half the time. It is gentle on my skin and I don't notice any skin irritation. The battery life is excellent. The blade is virtually unchanged from my old shaver, but if a concept works I guess stick with it. The buzzing sound doesn't bother me at all. I am very happy with the product and would gladly recommend it to others. Pro's: Quick smooth shave, long battery life, fairly light weight Con's: Buzzing sound (fairly minor), If you are new to electric shavers (for best results) you will need to get used to the technique.
I did a lot of research before splashing out on a new razor. Was unsure on Panasonic over Braun... But 100% pleased I chose this razor. First shave last night and very impressed with how closely it shaved, pretty much like a wet shave. Long may it continue!
