I have owned a succession of premium Braun electric razors over the years, but decided to opt for the Panasonic ES-LV 81, despite its premium ticket price. I can only say what money well spent this was: the closest and easily the best shave I have ever had. As it can be used with foams/soap etc owing to its wet/dry ability, it leaves your face super smooth and never 'burnt', and due to the heads multi-movement. Like no previous razor I have used before, it manages to get to those awkward hairs that grow against the flow and always leave that slight roughness to touch, and I can be properly finished within 90 seconds even when wet shaving as it gets everything first time.

Remove the blade head to wash under-the-tap, it even has a quick "sonic wash" mode if you hold down the power button for 2 seconds - saves on using the excellent docking station, and the reduces the cost on the already cost-effective Panasonic cleaning system (a tap refillable water reservoir supplemented by a small 6 month detergent that mixes with it).

Great to travel with due to the carry case and shaver socket & conventional UK plug heads included, and the travel button lock prevents accidental activation in your bag. Great battery life and extremely ergonomic, a joy to hold and use especially due to the large foils which make short work of the job in hand. Overall a terrific piece of kit and well worth the premium price, you won't regret it.

Read the reviews elsewhere (Amazon UK, US, DE, FR, ES) and you'll get the picture that unless you are ambidextrous and use two shavers in each hand, then this "five blader" noisy beast can't be beaten on time-to-clean-shave. The build quality is the best of the Panasonic shavers as it is "Made in Japan" and not the common flimsy Chinese mass manufactured rubbish. However, you pay for this "label" and pay way over the odds. The cleaner unit is Chinese manufactured but that's just a gimmick designed to get you to part with even more money. Heed the advice of others and buy from Amazon.DE (the German site) if the price remains lower than the rest of the Amazon world. The process is exactly the same as that of UK site and you don't need to register again. You'll save up to seventy quid! The "clicks" are exactly the same as that on the UK site and the price will be converted to GBP at the end. Delivery from Germany is around 2-3 days and only a few pounds extra.

The trimmer on these shavers is a bit too small/weak for my needs but I guess I'll have to buy a separate trimmer for back-of-neck etc. I come from the Philips rotary world and one bonus with this (possible all linear) shaver is that it does not seem to "drop" the cut hair down like my Philips. That scatters hair all over the place.

So don't fool yourself into thinking that this shaver is unique in its ability to shave well; There are others (including my old rotary Philips) that do a good enough job although they take longer. This is first and foremost a luxury item. Moreover the cleaning unit will probably NOT be used by me once I've exhausted the free cartridge. I do not intend to subscribe to Panasonic's fortunes by paying a tenner for a few pence worth of alcohol for the convenience of not using water!

Well let me start from my beard. I have very tough beard and very thin skin on neck. The typical sensitive combo that creates all sorts of irritation. I own Panasonic's previous model, the ES-LA-93 for two years and I upgraded. Its really worth upgrading IF you can spare the money. Panasonic's premier shaver is not only very expensive to buy but also has expensive maintenance, since I have to replace the shaving foil once per year and the internal razors once every two years. So it will cost you more than the traditional shaving, no matter what the ad says.

Why the 5 stars then? Because it was an improvement over the excellent previous model. It shaves faster, smoother and quieter than previous great model. It is the same bulk size. Like previous model you can hear the cut of even a single hair, so when there is no hair cutting sound you may stop shaving the area or use a different angle for closer shave.

Personally I shave at the office the weekdays and I ALWAYS prefer dry shave instead of wet. The every day shave takes me about two and a half minutes and the every other day shave around four and a half. In bother shavers I ended up using the head locked almost always because it shaves deeper, at least my face.

Preshaving products: at previous model, ES LA-93, I used a powder pre shave, which eventually literally killed my cleaner and the shaver was never clean, I could always see residues at the Phillips screwdrivers of the base. So if you want to use a preshave solution avoid powder and use only the less amount possible. A complaint is that I cannot use the base cleaner for the previous model the LA93, it doesn't fit.

As for the seller, the delivery was fast, within a week to Greece and cheap.

Firstly you wont find a better and smoother shaver on the market
because their isnt one, this panasonic es-lv81 is also properly quick
Having used this shaver wet and dry,for me personly i prefer a wet shave
dont get me wrong a dry shave is amazingly smooth with this panosinic
its just my preference,it is alot of money but you get the best shaver ever.
Forget braun and and philishaves ive tried both over the years,
and they dont come any where near the panasonic shave.
