Not the cleanest shave, but good enough,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic ES8101S511 Men's Rechargeable Shaver in Silver (Personal Care)
I purchased this shaver in September 2010 for £149.99. I bought it due to the excellent reviews despite the relatively high purchase price. Three and a half years later despite regular use it still looks and works like it did in 2010, so certainly it scores highly for durability. It is very simple to clean, with the head coming apart easily. It has an indicator light for when charging is required, and this doesn't take too long - I reckon somewhere between 30-45 minutes for a near enough full charge.
The only slight let down is that is doesn't give you that clean a shave, even when brand new or having just replaced the head. I've previously had Philips shavers that have had various problems, but they always shaved better than this Panasonic shaver when they worked properly. I must admit to not being at all keen to use razors and shaving foam, but for me at least this shaver almost leaves me with 12-24 hours worth of stubble compared to using razors and shaving foam. Not ideal, but for the overall convenience, I can live with it. There is the option to use this for a wet shave, but then I don't really see the point in using an electric shaver for that purpose so I must admit I've never tried it that way to see if it is more effective.
