          Comments about Panasonic Arc IV Wet/Dry Shaver:

          I've had this shaver for about 2yrs now, and just replaced the blades. Though the battery doesn't seem to last as long as it did new, it's still good for 4-5 shaves in a week. And there's no questioning the shave quality - it's my 3rd Panasonic for a reason.

            Comments about Panasonic Arc IV Wet/Dry Shaver:

            in the past few years, due to disabilities that ebb and flow, i have stopped shaving every day. in fact, sometimes i go an entire week and just shave my neck every couple of days to make it look like i'm growing a beard or keeping a stubbly look going on. i've bought TWO electric shavers this year (3 blades) which cost as much as if not more than this one AND RETURNED THEM BOTH because while i'm sure they were probably 'good enough' for most guys' everyday use, i actually do have a heavy beard and sensitive skin, and after going 5 or 7 days without shaving my face itself, it is a female dog to use literally 2 or even 3 triple-blade razors and cut my face to shreds in order to finally take it off, take it off, take it all off. so, ESP AS I HAD 6 MOS OF MUCHO STAPLES REWARDS DINERO -- i figured i'd give this FOUR BLADER a try and I LOVE THE DURNED THING! it was simply to plug it in and charge it and the very next day IT TOOK OFF 5 DAYS OF GROWTH WITHIN 5 MINUTES! i timed it. since then, i have shaved about every other day and it takes no time at all and i don't cut myself. i prefer to warsh my face with hot water and lather up a little, let it soak in for 5 minutes or so, then shave 'wet' while rinsing the razor 'head' in hot water AND IT IS GRRRRRRRRREAT! honestly! i do NOT generally write reviews etc but in this case, honestly, this is a GREAT PRODUCT and considering what else is out there and the prices for what else is out there, Y'ALL OTTA REALLY CONSIDER BUYING THIS. i HATE shaving. HATE HATE HATE it but THIS PRODUCT makes it a very minor 5 minute bathroom thing after brushing my teeth and before getting into the shower instead of the 15 minute lather/sit/shave/cut/stiptic-sting thing it always used to be. 'nuff said? hope so. THIS 4 RAZOR ELECTRIC WET/DRY REALLY IS GREAT! -chris.

                Got this on after a huge recommendation of my brother as best shaver he has ever had. I have to agree. I have a pretty thick beard and it leaves my face as smooth as a baby's butt.

                  Just purchased online this razor to replace my decades old Panasonic. The shaving experience is impressive and I like the razor. But my old one sat in a sturdy stand to recharge while this one has to lay on a table...what a pain!. The rounded bottom should be changed.

                    Needs recharging every 3 days with 5 min shaves. It is a close shaver but the 4 blades is a gimmick. I have had better luck with the Panasonic dual head shavers. On the plus side, it seems a bit easier to clean with this one.

                      Comments about Panasonic Arc IV Wet/Dry Shaver:

                      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...

                          This shaver is loaded with problems. It shaves but very poorly because it takes too many passes for one to get close to a good shave. If you shave today tomorrow you will have to do it again plus it leaves hair on your face regardless of the amount of time spent trying to get a good shave from this machine. Panasonic should look into this problem and solve it promptly.

                            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.
