Like any shaver there are usually good and bad points. We here at the Shaving Emporium prefer to advise our readers of both sides of the argument, before making any conclusions.
This is a high end shaver from a very good brand. What makes this very unique is that it uses a 5 blade system, and a higher than usual quality foil. Many other shavers will use a 3 blade system.
We have read the reviews, yes all of them, and then summarised those to try and make your decision, that little bit easier.
By examining these carefully, you get some really useful information, and that of course does include any problems.
It is that which we have carefully summarised below.
As I pointed out already, there are not a lot of poor reviews (2% at 2 stars), but we have included both the good and the bad points, according to real life buyers.
- Most buyers said this shaver was as close to a wet shave as you can possibly get.
- Many buyers said that it was a very comfortable shave
- Buyers said they for between 4-5 shaves for a full charge
- Quite a few buyers with thicker stubble said, this Panasonic shaved faster than anything they had used before.
- There were 2 reviewers who said that they had very sensitive skin, and they found this shaver just too rough
In summary the 3 or 4 poor reviews said that this shaver was not ideal as they had very sensitive skin. Those that gave it a high rating said that the shave was perfection. The number of happy and satisfied buyers is indeed, very high.

This one has an excellent rating at 4.9 out of 5 stars. The reviews have also been very consistent , and continue to be the same

The unique 5 blade system along with a higher quality of foil makes this a good shaver. It can be used as a quick dry shave in the morning, however, it can also be used to wet shave if you want.
It has "Nanotech blades" which have been honed at an acute 30 degree angle. That allows whiskers and stubble to be cut more cleanly at the root. The razor also has a pivoting head and that allows the foil head to easily follow the contours of the face.
The motor in this is excellent and that stops any risk of painful tugging and pulling. It then also comes with an automatic cleaning/charging system, that cleanses the shaver with a hygienic, alcohol-free solution.
To complete this shaver it has a 10-stage LCD display, switch-lock button, pop-up trimmer and a travel pouch .
This is a high quality, high end shaver. For the majority of buyers though, they seem to think that this shaver from Panasonic does an excellent job.
