    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's 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

    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...

    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.

    Product does a good job of cutting whiskers, but the best part is the ease of cleaning the shaver.

    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.

    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.

    Nice Wet/Dry Shaver

    Being a blade user for most of my life and having not used an electric shaver in years, I decided to give one another try. After doing quite a bit of research, I purchased this item (it being on sale didn't hurt either). The unit is quite comfortable to hold and does a decent job of providing a clean shave. If there is a negative, and it could be that I am still trying to get used to using an electric shaver, I am having difficulty cutting some of the longer facial hairs. After multiple tries I usually end up getting out the old blade shaver and finish the job. The unit however is very easy to clean and it holds a charge for a long time. Overall, this is a very nice shaver.

    I had been using an Arc4 for about 4 years. Unfortunately, there is something wrong with the motor and it no longer can provide a consistent cut. I needed something that could cleanly shave my head and face (fairly thick growth), which the Arc4 did pretty well. Enter the Arc5, which does it even better. The addition of the fifth blade and slightly more powerful motor (might have to check this fact) provide a clean, smooth cut. Battery life is better, and cleaning it's still as easy as the Arc4 was. Though it's only been a couple of weeks, I definitely recommend the Arc5!

    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 .

    A comfortable and close shave. No expensive cleaning cartridges like the Brauns I've owned! On sale at half of the reasonable list price, it is the best value I've ever gotten in a shaver.
