ES8243A Arc IV Nano Men's Wet/Dry Rechargeable Shaver, Blue is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shaver I was very skeptical about buying a electric shaveer. I have a heavy beard that grows every which way and is very difficult to shave even with a bladed razor. I looked at several different electric razors and this buy far was the best reviewed and at a decent price. I decided to give it a try. I used it first in the shower and I was very pleased with how close it shaved. My face smooth and just as close as if I used a bladed razor. This razor had a great feal and is very east to clean. I will be buying one for my dad too. Thanks Panasonic for such a great device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Let's see... I was really impressed by the closeness of this shaver...i think that is its best item. But i'm talking about 100% babyface, just like a regular razor shave. I'm bald and also the head gets smooth, soft shave, it fits great on your head and your skin won't get irritated. When it comes to the neck, this shaver isn't effective. But the question is: does any electric shaver is? I also had a messy issue trying to clean the inner razors after a wet shave with foam. I think i wasn't able to fully clean it, even with lots of water, a tiny stick, soap and turbo mode. It still has some foamy residue. So i think i will keep the dry shave, cause i don't find any effectiveness difference between wet and dry shaving. I hope you find this review useful...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shaver yet This gives me the closest shave of any shaver or disposable blade I've tried. I was amazed the first time I used it. With my old shaver, even with a new blade, I'd have to press it into my skin to get a close shave, and frequently would get razor burn due to sensitive skin. This shaver requires hardly any pressure and I've had zero skin irritation. Also, I was pleasantly surprised to find the 20-second cleaning mode of this thing really works. Only drawback is slightly less battery lifetime compared to older Panasonic model, due, I think, to the smaller size, but it makes up for it by being much lighter and more maneuverable. Price-wise, compared to the price of premium disposable blades, this thing is cheap. Bottom line: AWESOME SHAVER!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than any electric I've owned Because I have baby face skin with very dark whiskers, I have a hard time finding a razor of any kind that works for me. With most razors, I show a shadow a few hours later, other than with some blade razors. I also get razor burn really easily, even from blades, and with blades I seem to get micro-cuts pretty easily. So, I've been using electrics for years, but none ever really were right. Have tried a whole range of rotaries and foil razors. I bought this to replace a travel razor that died. Was hugely impressed first shave - close, no shadow all day, no burn, not even hot. I assumed it was just new razor wonderfulness, and that in a few weeks it'd be like most others. Didn't come out that way. I use the travel razor three days a week, and I'm now well into my second year on the blades, and it's as good as it was new. I'm looking at replacement blades just because it seems about time. I find the wet shave to be no big difference at all. I do like the cleaning capabilities. The trimmer blade isn't in a good position, have to hold at a weird angle to use and therefore can't see well what you're doing, it's not as good as many I've had. That's really my only functional issue. And, it's expensive, and replacement blades are really expensive...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shave not long lasting This shaver gives a smooth fast shave with almost no pull or noise. Chief drawback is that after about 9 hours I need another shave, which is a much shorter duration than my previous shavers. I don't know why this is. Probably it is because although the shaver does very well on the surface, it does not dig deeper to clip the hair well below. Consequently, the hair grows back quickly. I could somewhat remedy this problem by shaving longer, but of course this cancels one of the shaver's good features (i.e. a fast shave) and did not completely solve the problem. A big disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from in a word WONDERFUL Being a black man I fight with razor bumps.I have never owned an elctric shaver.First time I had a shave with one was from my barbar and I was impressed.This shave is the bomb. I gave it a 3 on value because it is expensive and the repalcement parts are not cheap.But,you get what you pay for. I love this shaver

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, very well engineered shaver Superb shave with the 4 cutting blades. The smoothest shave I ever experienced and extremely quick. Pop up trimmer very useful and at a good angle. I also like the fact that it closes away and is covered (unexposed) when shut. My old shaver (from a different brand...) had a slide up pop up trimmer which was still exposed even when shut, potentially exposing it to damage when travelling, putting the shaver in a bag etc. I like the plastic protective blade cover and travel bag it came with - this is good for travelling, as it is very well protected. My only minor issue why I didn't give it a perfect score is that the charger plug to the shaver is rather tight to attach/remove. This could be improved and it would get a perfect score from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shaver! This is my third Panasonic electric shaver that I have purchased over the years. Each one has been better than the last and this model is no exception. I get closer shaves than I get with a blade without the raw skin. Like the others I have owned, this shaver cleans easily and performs well. I have used several of the other electric razors on the market, including the rotary kind and the German high priced models. I am sticking with Panasonic because for me, it clearly out perform the competition. I am still using my previous Panasonic razor when I travel. It still works great. I have no problem recommending this product to anybody who wants a great electric shaver.
