    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...

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

    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 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.

    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.

    I loved this razor, easy to clean manually with clean setting. Shaves insane close for a electric shaver. I had to return because it's a bit to harsh on my skin, but it's still an amazing shaver overall.

    I love this shaver. I no longer have a Razor bump issue. The Razer charges very fast. Is easy to clean and cuts super close with no burn issues.

    I purchased this after reading many reviews, and it seemed to be the best value for the money. After using this for a while it has been great. Nice shave, easy to clean, and hold a charge very well. With its 5 blades it's hard to beat for any price and handles the curves of my face very well.

    Best Shave Ever!

    I'm 56 years old and have used numerous electric shavers over the years, as well as shaving with a blade. This is the most expensive shaver I've ever purchased and it's well worth the additional cost. It actually shaves closer than a blade, and much quicker than any other electric shaver that I've tried. It's also very easy to clean and you can get quite a few shaves out of one charge. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

    My husband told me I knocked it outta the park w this one. I replaced his Norelco triple head. Difficulty finding replacement heads. Loves the digital power/seconds readout & knows when to recharge. Easy to clean.

    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.

    This is my second electric shaver. This shaves much closer than my 3 head Norelco. Also cuts faster, almost half the time. Very easy to clean. Bought it on sale so it was a great price.

    Replaced an old phillips electric. Read the reviews at BB and online and could not decide between Braun and Panasonic. I chose Panasonic becuase I read it was as close to a blade as any electric razor without the huge rotary head. Reviews were correct. I love this razor. Easy to manuever, cuts close, trimmer is great, fits well in my hand and easy to clean with soap and water.

    For an electric shaver - it’s unrivaled

    It's louder than I expected and it's no quick shave, either. But it's the most comfortable and the closest shave you can get with an electric. A bit pricey, but if electric is your thing I wouldn't hesitate at all to buy this. Forget the extra cleaning / charging station. This thing is already too expensive without it and is even more absurd with it. It's easy to clean, anyway. The little edge trimmer on the back of the shaver has some serious bite to it, so take it easy with that.
