    I really wanted to give an electric a try after many years of using my double edge safety razor. I actually get a closer shave this way since I do not shave against the grain with my safety razor but with this I can. My wife likes the close shave I get with the Arc5. Was back and forth and with it being $80 off I took the leap. Very happy I did. Been shaving wet with it. Very easy to clean.

    This is like the 3-4th shaver that I've purchased since these electric shavers have been out. All others were trash and I returned them back because they didn't work or because they left me bumps or rashes. This shaver however was superb!!! No bumps or anything! I love it. I recommend to family member who also purchased and they loved it too. It's leaves a clean shave, easy to use, easy to clean and charge.

    I purchased this electric razor with a good deal of skepticism. I have used gillette manual razors for years, and briefly flirted with a braun electric over twenty years ago. I was very surprised that not only does this thing give me a great shave, it gives me a better one then my gillette fusion blades. I am a touch customer, and I think this thing is amazing.

    Best I've Found

    Threw my Bruan away after only using a few months. Didn't shave, but pulled; not close at all. Was crap. This is a dream. I had previous Panasonic and should have bought instead of Bruan. This cuts close and perfect, keeps charge for a week or more, and cleans fairly easily. Only CON is it seems to need cleaning sooner than previous models, but easy and well worth the close shave. Price was right too.

    I've owned 2 Arc4 Panasonic shavers, and still use them both. I decided to purchase this Arc5 because it was finally within my price range. $100 off, are you kidding me!? Thanks Best Buy! But besides price, this shaver is a great value! Wet/Dry, quick charging, and long battery life. The shave experience is even better, and takes half the time of my Arc4's. Cuts through thick hair like a hot knife through butter.

    I bought this shaver to shave my head after trying the Skull Shaver that was cheap and did not give a close shave. This shaves as close as the Gillette Fusion 5 razor I was using which I was not expecting. I did not plan to use on face but it works so good I am using for both head and face. Also very quick, I use in the shower with shave cream and only takes 2-3 minutes to do head and face. Very happy with this purchase.

    I have long used an electric razor and found most brands disappointing. Several years ago I started using Panasonic and found them to be superior in every respect. Until recently I was using an Arc4 and was mostly satisfied. Had heard and read good things about Arc5 so when Best Buy had a one day sale for 50% off I took the plunge and I am so glad I did.

    Love this razor. Amazing for the price and really the 2nd best out. This has the CLOSEST cut of ANY electric razor our PERIOD. Only reason didnt work for me is I have very sensitive skin and kept have to go over neck area to get tricky hairs that grow other ways and lay flat and would irritate the heck out of my neck. If you dont have these problems save money and get this razor you will be super happy

    I’ve been using Panasonic razors for a long time because I have a heavy beard that’s hard to shave. I always use shave cream because it’s easier on my skin . Thi razor is amazing, it lets me shave in 5 minutes and has a very close and comfortable shave . The 5 blades work fast and adjust to your face automatically so you don’t have to push down and annoy your skin .

    Best foil razor for the money

    I have had a Braun Series 7 razor for many years and it worked fine, but when it broke I had heard so much about the Panasonic Arc-5 that I wanted to give it a try. I have had the Panasonic Arc-5 for approximately two months and it works great! I am extremely happy with it, especially the fact that it is wet/dry and exceptionally easy to clean, and it shaves closer than the Braun.

    Panasonic Arc5 Electric shaver

    I replaced my old ARC3 Panasonic shaver with this new Panasonic ARC5 shaver. The old one was 3 years old and the battery was weakening some (still OK) and the foil and blades needed replacing. The old Panasonic shaver was very good and this one is even better. The shave is a little better than the ARC3 and the battery life is excellent. I am totally satisfied with this ARC5 shaver.

    This razor is really nice because you can use in both a wet and dry environment. The head swivels nicely and the foil really allows you to get a clean shave. The battery life is also extremely good, which is helpful if you leave town without the charger. Therefore, this is a solid purchase and value for the money.

    It’s a good razor mine doesn’t have the wash stand but that’s why I got it it’s real easy to clean and it does a good job it is a lot different than the Braun I had but I think it shaves closer than the Braun and cheaper it did take me a while to get used to the big head but I like it

    This shaver is a big leap forward over previous models. The battery charge lasts for 8 to 10 days. The older versions were 4 to 5 days at most. Also it has a sensor that determines how thick your beard is making it much easier as it accelerates where there is heavier growth. Very satisfied with this shaver.

    Best Electric Shaver on Market

    This is my first non-norelco, non three head shaver. I never thought I would like this type of foil shaver. I recently purchased a high end Norelco & it was nothing like my old one. It was a complete piece of junk. After doing some research, I decided to try this model. The reviews were correct. Kicking myself for not trying one of these years ago. Clean, quick, smooth, painless shave.

    Store staff said to get one of two other brands but the review of this electric shaver were favorable so I decided to try it and I'm very pleased with the closeness of the shave with a very short time usually less than 3 min. I love that it's wet or dry which makes it really easy to clean.

    I have had a Panasonic Arc 4 for a couple of years and love it, so when I saw the Arc 5 on sale I ordered it right away. It was a bonus getting the unit as a Deal of the Day buy - it's worth the undiscounted full price. Great battery life with a detailed LED screen that tells you when to charge, how long it has been used and even when to clean it. Panasonic makes great razors.

    I've used electric shavers since I started shaving. I've always stuck to middle of the road shavers. I decided to spend a little more this time to see if there is any real difference. I have been disappointed with this shaver. My 5 year old $50 shaver works close to the same as this shaver. Pro: Close shave. Con: Repeatedly have to go over certain areas multiple times.

    I’ve had three electric razors. The Remington burned my face (though it was several years ago). The Norelco was okay. It lasted two years and died. I use this Panasonic razor with warm water and shaving cream. If I want a close shave there are a few areas I must follow up with a standard razor. I like that it is fast, does a good job for most occasions and cleans easily.

    This is the best electric shaver I have ever used. I keep a beard, but shave my head. This gave me such a close, and comfortable head shave! I’m honestly blown away. This has made me such a believer, I’m throwing away my blades. It’s worth every penny.
