    Does a good job, only drawback is that it is not as quiet as I would have liked. Easy to clean, battery has long life on a charge.

    The unit is easy to clean and handle. However, the razors didn't seem sharp enough. Had to make several passes to complete a single area.

    Have tried many electric razors. This is the best affordable one out there. Easy to clean as the blades are on the frame and not the foil. Cuts Fairly close.

    This Razor gives a great shave in a short period of time. I have used Norelco for many years, and this Panasonic Arc 3 is much better. I get a much closer shave in 1/3 of the time. Very easy to clean, and I love the pop down trimmer.

    I use this to shave my head, and I've owned it for about four months by now. So I can't speak to how it works on a beard, but this isn't one of those gushing unboxing reviews that are worse than pointless. Overall, I'm very satisfied. It'sn't the fastest shaver but that's because the hair on my head seem to grow in different directions and trying to keep track of how best to angle the head for the closest shave takes some work. But once you figure it out, it gives a remarkably close shave, almost like a blade. It's also successful under my jaw and on my neck as well, areas that have defeated every other shaver I've ever owned. It charges lightning fast and is easy to hold and easy to clean. If I were to change anything it would be the protective cap, which is a bit more fiddly than it needs to be, and provide it with an actual travel case instead of a padded pouch.

    Close shave all around

    For an electric razor the Arc 3 provides a close comfortable shave. I've been using the Arc 3 for a month and the closeness of the shave has improved with time. I've shaved using a pre shave, foam and wet shave while in the shower. Using a pre shave is the most preferred method during the work week. Applying a foam and then shaving resulted in a very close and smooth shave. This method does take a bit more time. Shaving in the shower using soap also resulted in a very smooth shave. Not having a mirror caused this method to take the longest time. I did shave one time during the past month using shave oil. This method did result in a very close shave the only downside, if you could call it that, is having to clean the oil from your face. Cleaning the Arc 3 is easy, a brush isn't necessary. Using the cleaning setting (fast vibration) and applying a bit of hand soap, cleans the Arc 3 quickly. I usually let the Arc 3 drip dry. I use this method to clean the Arc 3 maybe twice a week on average. I do apply oil to the blades and foil, only twice in the past month. I only had to charge the Arc 3 twice over the past month when shaving every day and cleaning as described. I've been shaving some forty years mostly using blade type razors and electric razors of the time. I'm very happy with the Arc3, it's technology, closeness of the shave and ease of cleanup.
