    Still getting used to it. Bought it because it was rated best for bald head however, I don't that is correct for African American hair. Works well on the sided area however in areas around the neck and ears it is limited. Have to make multiple passes which irritates skin and produces bumps, which goes back to the not best for African Americans.

    This Panasonic wet-dry razor is one of the best purchases I've made to date. The blades are sleek and sharp, always giving me the smooth and clean shave for my entire beard, neck and mustache area! Also, love the digital battery readout and super fast charge. Great for international travel with a multi outlet adapter and voltage compatibility.

    I bought this for my wife who is a barber to use in her shop. She said it is fantastic and shaves closely for those who do not want a straight razor shave. When my home electric razor dies I will be replacing it with one of these. Recommended!

    I’ve had the shaver 3 days, I’m 47 and I’ve used a razor all my life. After playing with it a couple of days I can say I am getting an incredibly close shave just putting a little water on the foil blade and go. I tried it with shaving cream but that makes it much less effective.

    I bought this machine for my spouse, immediately he opened it out of the box and tried it. It charged up quickly and last long. Easy convenience of shaving beard dry. Works really well. Removes all of his beard instantly and it comes with a carry on pouch it's good for travel. And all you need to do is rinse with water when your done.

    Best razor ever used

    Always used blades as I wanted the closet shave possible. This is the 2nd electric razor purchased and this one gives a shave so close to a blade that it is a no-brainer to use this shaver which is faster and cheaper in the long run. Would never go back to blades.

    The Panasonic wet/dry razors are garbage. The first one I had was replaced under warranty after a year bc water got inside and killed the lcd. My replacement did the same thing after 4 months. It just completely died on me today, a year after it was sent to me. They are NOT well made or sealed properly to be waterproof. Stay away from these at all costs.

    Have had several Panasonic shavers over the years, but this without a doubt is the BEST...It's quiet, fast and smooth...Battery life is incredible...Easy to clean...GRRRREAT for shaving your entire head as I do...Never any irritation either...Money well spent on this shaver...

    Had a ARC4 and went to the ARC5 and got a bit closer shave and not as irritating after shaving, not that it was a drastic difference but enough that I'm happy with the shaver. Still have to go over the neck area 4-5 times to get those hairs that lay flat but still think it's a good shave when on sale.

    Clean Shave!

    Finally a clean shave. Used a Norelco 3-head for years, replaced blades and could never get under the neck. This razor is an A+, gets all of the contours on the face and neck and shaves down to the skin. Great deal at Xmas, $100 off, may not see that deal for a long time but love it.

    I honestly didn't expect to buy this razor but after reading CR reviews and comparing prices I bought this and am very glad. Smooth close comfortable shaves and it can be used in the shower (although I haven't done that yet). I also like the cleaning mode .

    Best Wet Dry Shaver Hands Down

    After owning a Remington, trying Norellco and owning 3 previous Panasonic Wet Dry Razors, I finally found the best. Best closest shave ever with no nicks or razor burn. Fast and real quiet and great on power. I also use TurboShave lotion which is best shaving solution ever. All the best.

    It takes a while to adjust from a rotary shaver, but I wanted to try something different. The large head takes some getting used to and extra effort to shave under the jaw line. Pulling the skin to expose the whiskers is required. Battery life and quick recharging are a plus. It's a very good shaver and may be great with practice.

    Best electric razor I have owned in 60 years!

    Much better than the less expensive Panasonic ARC models. Smooth, clean, soft and non-irritating! Cleanup is a breeze - warm water will do it. I use a little liquid soap in the rinse. A charge is good for 14 days' worth of heavy shaving.

    Doesn't sound like older foil shavers

    Got this to give as a gift, the recipient raved about it. He had only used rotary-type electrics before and was surprised how nicely this razor cut. I noticed it makes a high-pitched buzz, nothing like the old Remington my father used. When turned off it shows how long he used it and how much charge is left on the battery.

    Love my new Arc5. Haven't used an electric razor in years. My old Braun always gave me a rash. On a whim I wanted to try electric again and I love the fact that I can take this inthe shower and use gel. I get a closer shave with this than my german Harrys baldes. And, no rash!

    Wasn't sure when I was looking at this because of the cost. Well I decided to spend the money and I couldn't be happier. This is hand down the best electric razor I have ever used. Holds a charge very well also, I charged it before I left on a 10 day vacation and I had no issues. Thanks Again Panasonic.

    Had that Arc3 and have really like it. It was time to purchase a replacement head for it and due to a great sale I purchased the Arc 5 for just a little more than the cost of a replacement head. The Arc 5 has been a great shaver.

    Overall, I am pleased with this product. The shave is smooth and nearly as close as a blade. The unit is easy to clean. My skin is not sensitive, so I use it dry. It does struggle with longer soft hair on the side of my neck if I don't shave for a couple of days, but the pop up trimmer helps with that problem.
