Requires daily use. I find that I need to shave the area daily with 2 to 3 passes for relatively smooth skin. It does the job if you're shaving for looks, but your skin won't feel as silky smooth as it would w/ a disposable razor. I find more stubble if I don't shave daily. I've only experienced pulling when using this shaver to shave/trim longer hair. Shaver doesn't glide very easily over the skin w/o the use of a lubricant such as soap or shaving cream, but the shaver is easy to clean. Water and bar soap give me the closest shave in comparison to shaving dry, shaving dry w/ foaming shaving cream, and shaving wet w/ foaming shaving cream.
Trimmer. Has been a very good purchase as this will be my second unit. First one lasted roughly 6 years. I use it for cutting my hair and it does an excellent job. Only issue I have come across is trying to purchase a new trimmer cap (plastic piece that goes over the trimmer head). Very difficult getting anyone that knew what I was talking about. Other than that, it is great.
good Job. For an inexpensive electric shaver, it does a good job. You have to take your time (don't expect to rush and get a close shave) and hold it against the skin without too much pressure. It actually does an OK job. I prefer to use it dry, but it can be used in the shower or tub. I like it much better than other brands inexpensive versions. For the price, I feel it is a good buy.
Incredible Value. I've had a beard for about 30 years. Over that time, I've had around ten beard trimmers, give or take. This is my third Panasonic. The achilles' heel for each trimmer brand is the battery. They all wear out and the cost to have them replaced is usually about the same as buying a new trimmer. Aside from that, I've always been well satisfied with my Panasonics. The motor is strong. The trimmer blade works smoothly with no pinching or pulling. The charger plugs directly into the wall with no unruly cord to fuss about. (Be sure to plug it into the wall with the trimmer head pointing down.) The only issue I have is that the head dosen't allow we to get close enough to the whiskers directly under my nose. I have to take the guard off and do it directly. Minor point. I'm glad i bought it.
Good design and features. Overall a very good product. The pivoting head helps a lot and the pop-up trimmer is great. It would be nice to have the option to buy replacement heads as the blades become dull after about a year of use. I've bought this model 3 years in a row just because I like the features.
