    I am trying to return this product. To begin with, this shaver is not shaving any better than two foiled Panasonic shavers, which I have been using those about 6 years. I have thick and dense facial hair, but I was shaving satisfactorily with previous Panasonic products. With that price tag, and double the number of foils I have every right to expect better shaving performance. Contrary to the support's classical answers, I am actually cleaning the shaver head everyday, with water and soap and with a soft scrubber to clean the cutter blades. I should note here that there is no way for the user to remove the outermost two cutter blades and clean them thoroughly. Due to this fact, shaver performance reduces over time very quickly and as of now (40 days after purchase) it became nearly unusable for me. Throughout my experience with this product, I had to go through the same region on my face multiple times in order for it to shave. As suggested on the user manual, zigzagging over the region of interest did not improve the shaving performance. I also want to note that the timer display was always wrong, showing wrong duration of usage. Also I never got more than 35 minutes of charge, although the manual states that it should run 45 minutes with full charge, and because of the situation I described above I needed full charge time to have a satisfactory shave with this poor shaving performance.

    Bottom line, this electric shaver doesn't shave

    I haven't used electric shavers for a lot of years because they didn't shave close enough, especially compared to a standard razor, so this shaver was my first revisit to see if the technology had improved to allow better shaves to be achieved. My finding is that "not yet". This shaver did a terrible job of shaving. I had to go over my face to the point of it starting to get sore from running the shaver over it so many times. After all that I ended up having to whip out my standard razor to finish up the job. I'm very disappointed because I was hoping it would have worked and save me some time on my daily shave. Unfortunately it didn't work out that way.

    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.

    After doing my research online I decided to purchase this shaver.After trying wet and dry shaves with the Panasonic I was very dissatisfied. I didn't get a close shave with either method. And I was really looking forward to getting rid of my razor!

    This razor is supposed to be a high dollar, quality shaver. But no, it is terrible at getting neck hair, leaves patches behind, and give you razor burn. I'm going back to the Buan series

      Thank you for your feedback and we're sorry you're not thrilled with your experience so far. Everyone's skin and hair growth are different, and it can take about 30 days to adjust to any new shaving method. We'd also recommend trying the shaver wet, as this works more effectively for many of our customers. Panasonic

    I have been using electric shavers. I have braun, norelco and decided to try panny after reading good reviews. It doesn't give good shave, it gives lot of bumps and misses beard on neck. I won't recommend

    Wouldn’t give a close shave. Very dissapointed it’s hard to shave when you’re older, was hopeing it would help with poor vision.
