I have used Panasonic shavers for about 20 years and have found them to be the best electric shaver on the market. The only negative is that the quality of the shave decreases faster than advertised. replacement blades cost as much as a new shaver making it almost cheaper to buy new. SAD.

Great, close shave
from Chambersburg, Pa
Been using electric razors for years. This is, by far, the best razor I have owned.
By Ron from Atlanta
from McDonough, GA, USA
I have owned Panasonic shavers for over 20 years and the RT51 is my best experience yet. I have had several more expensive models yet I'm getting my most enjoyable shaving experience from the lower cost RT51 than any of the previous owned. I decided to start using a gel right from the get go which I had never done before, choosing to just use it in the shower in the past. It seems to lubricate the experience and gives a closer shave.
TYPICAL PANASONIC PRODUCT
from Puyallup, WA, USA
I have used this razor for about 10 months now and will say that this shaver is very typical of the many Panasonic products I have owned over the years. Panasonic builds the best products on the market at costs that do not drain your pocket book. This razor is a top performer both when I shave dry or I use gel, foam, or creme. It is quiet, easy to clean, rock solid, displays the percentage of remaining battery use, charges in 1 hour and believe it or not gives a close, comfortable shave every time. My one criticism is with the cost of replacing the screen and blades. The cost for these two items is almost as much as a new shaver, however, I must say that is the cost of a great shave. You get what you pay for. I swear by Panasonic and would never buy anything else! 2 of my grandson's will each have this shaver delivered by Santa this year.
Great product for the money
By Ice Cream Man
from Lawrenceburg, IN, USA
I spent over 2 months looking, trying returning electric razors. From the Norelco that didn't shave a whisker off, not paying 200+ for a overpriced Braun, I selected the Panasonic ES-RT51S. I immediately fell in "love" with this razor. It cuts very close, the pop up trimmer works great. After 1 hour of charging it is pure bliss. The razor I threw away was over 25 yrs. old. So I was a hard one to please and this fantastic razor did the trick.
Nice design and very easy to use

So far what I have received has nice design and very easy to use. I will have to provide feedback later on quality as that is something tested over time. However, really like the product I just received.

from Aurora, CO
Very impressed with the shaver's comfort and ease of use. My one criticism is with the cost of replacing the screen and blades. It makes no sense that the cost for these two items is almost as much as a new shaver. Obviously, this is where the manufacturer is making its profit.
I am a hard core blade shaver - i have never shaved with an electric shaver before. I was looking for an electric shaver to speed up my morning routine (i shave every day). First i have purchased a travel (with 2 AA batteries panasonic shaver). It is good, but it was taking the same amount of time. Then i have purchased this shaver on sale for $39.99 at first i did not like it - before i learned how to use it and adjusted to it. The shaving is quick, smooth. Cleaning is very easy - just rinse it under water (i have only done dry shaving). The charge lasted me over a week (i still shave with blade on the weekend. I am enjoying it.
from Indiana, USA
Very nice shaver. Use in shower, tells % of battery left, charges in an hour, nice features. It does not shave as close as a blade, however the comfort on your face is well worth the difference. It does shave close and fast. I always shave wet and with lubricant so that helps. You will not be sorry with this shaver. Well worth the price which was by the way cheaper than others with less features.
This is my second ES-RT51 shaver. Previous one is still going after 5 years but blades were getting old and battery was only lasting a week - had good service so purchased another shaver.

First time using a wet/dry shaver. Really like it. This shaver is quite, smooth and does a good job.
from Lakeland, FL, USA
I gave this shaver to my hubby for his birthday and and he loves it. Thanks
from Canton, MI, USA
Purchase this for my son and he loves it, it is very easy to use and does a great job removing the hair. Best shaver I have purchased, very pleased.
from east coast US
Only had a few weeks but it gives a very smooth close shave. My son recommended this shaver and I have to agree with him that so far it is a good shave. Don't know dependability yet but if it is Panasonic I would expect it to last a long time.
from Dayton, Ohio
This is about the 4th or 5th Panasonic Shaver I have purchased over ten or fifteen years. The one I had before this one would go dead after it dropped to 60 % so this was a replacement. So far it is performing very well.

Replaced a cheaper two blade cordless and cut my shave time to a minute or so.

Great shave, however, the battery tends to die after about a year.
Pretty good so far
By I am
Just got it shaves closely last razor I bought last night 4 months and died it was good at first so I'd say it's a little early to judge last electric razor was not a panasonic
A good place to start
I have very sensitive skin and can't shave with any kind of razor including safety razor or modern 3-5 blade razors. I was using a stubble trimmer and had to keep a 5 o' clock shadow since I refuse to irritate my skin with razor shaving. The 5 o' clock shadow look worked well enough for me since I was just a student but now that I will be joining the workplace I wanted to be clean shaven. That's were this Panasonic shaver comes in. It was the right price with enough features to start out with. I can say that I'm very satisfied with this razor. The first few shaves were not that close but don't let that fool you since once your skin and beard adjusts the shaves are as close as I ever had without any irritation. It can be used wet or dry but I use it dry because I don't want to use additional products like shaving creams/foams. I rated this 4 stars because it is missing some features that the more expensive models have but still it's understandable considering the price point. I can easily recommend this shaver as a starting point or even an everyday shaver. I like the Panasonic shaver so much that I am now looking to upgrade to a higher end model sometime soon. Until then I am enjoying this shaver and I'm happy with the results and how I look clean shaven without irritation.
from Northern New York
Very easy to clean and from the first time I used it..no razor burns. Enjoyed the fact that I could take it in the shower. Cuts very close (although not quite as close as a razor) but it's close...So far I have only used it for 2 weeks, but if it continues to work as it has, I will be very satisfied.....Any Panasonic product is hard to beat and I own several!

Battery Life an Issue
from Calgary AB Canada
Bought early in 2012 - satisfied with shave but quality /quantity of shave declined rapidly. Replacement blades and foil bought mail order from Panasonic Canada (most economical way) helped but battery life still poor. Remembered stories of some types of battery having a 'memory' and not fully recharging. I have improved the battery life from 2.5 shaves to 7 and improving . . . After it quits in mid-shave in the morning, I leave the shaver turned on but not plugged in until I go to bed, then plug in and re-charge overnight. Battery life is improving! I do wish it could be plugged in to finish the shave in progress . .

By barley there
from Opaskwayak Cree Nation, MB Canada
My wife gifted this shaver to me & I've had no complaints as of yet. works well, Battery is good, bit expensive doe, I've had it 2 yrs now. I'm very satisfied with this product.
This shaver is rugged, compact and easy to use. It does not give a close shave and is so rough on the face that I have to use shaving cream. Not a great buy.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased my first hi speed Panasonic about 10yrs ago. It lasted about 9yrs. I purchased this unit approx 2yrs ago. The shaver does a good job on my beard; however, after about 9 month, I began getting 8 shaves instead of 10 per charge. A few months more and I began getting 6 shaves on a charge. This summer I began getting 4 shaves per charge, and now I am getting about 31/2 shaves per charge. Looking for a new shave. Don't expect this to last much longer.

Not what I expected from Panasonic
This is an easy razor to handle and feels good. As for shaving, it does not shave close and I always have to do a follow-up with a safety razor. I am disappointed with this product and now realize why it was on a discount sale. CAVEAT EMPTOR!
