The shave is impressively very close! Except if there is any stray whisker that has grown passed stubble length, then the shaver very well may not catch it and just press over it ... while leaving a longer stray whisker behind; that is not at all good. I carry a disposable razor just in case, so I don't find an embarrassingly orphaned 1/4" whisker that I missed not seeing. The shaver's cleaner brush annoyingly has no home, so I duct taped mine awkwardly onto the removable clear blades' lid, just so I don't lose it.

Worst shaver ever

Perforated foil screen does not allow cutting of beard. It is a BAD joke - not worth the $$ to return it.

      Comments:

      With good AA nicads (2500mah+ Sanyo etc) it is a good performer. Need to brush out the blade with foil cap off after every use. I have used two of them for maybe 5 years (both still good). Made very well and the hard case protects very well for travel. I use a Feather (Japan) straight blade to finish, but the Panasonic does all the work. Maybe a Bic single for around the contours where a straight edge (Feather) might cut in. get the Panasonic nose trimmer with the vac also.

                  I have a ESLA63 which I am very happy with. While researching shavers I saw the ES 3831K for $14 but didn't think of it as a daily shaver. Since then I started traveling a lot and purchased one, since the ESLA63 is a little big and needs the cord for charging. I could not believe it gave me as good or better shave than the ESLA63. I purchased another one for daily use. I like that it uses readily available batteries instead if a charger, is small, and is its own case. I have Panasonic everything, and not only have I never been dissatisfied with any product, but have always been impressed with the quality and attention to detail of all products.

                        This is my 2nd shaver, it does a very good job as the much more expensive razors and cleans up quick. I did not receive any travel pouch with the order as the description stated.

                                            I had a predesessor to this model by Panasonic that lasted 12 years for travel. It appears they made good changes/improvements in it. I like the battery power instead of plug in; makes it easy for use in foreign countries, and can also be carried where you are instead of plugging in when your wife has occupied the bathroom.

                                              Close shaves and great design quality with this little travel shaver. Convenient with batteries, and can also be converted to plug-in with after market additions. (Not for use in shower, then). The price makes this an excellent value with prices so high for so many appliances today. Careful use gives as close a shave as the old Wilkinson blades.

                                                      I mostly bought this shaver for its travel size and battery operation but found it gave a nice comfortably, close shave. I used to like the older single blade Panasonic shavers I had and this new one reminds me of it but battery-operated instead of an e-cord. It was well worth the price and free shipping. Only thing I would like with this shaver is a sideburn cutter.

                                                        Battery power makes for Ease of use while traveling or not. (Not sure yet how long the AA batteries will last.) A nice compact shaver for those curves on your face where a multiple-blade shaver is too large for close shaves. No sidecut or edger and I would have paid a little more but it's not available. (I think old versions had them but they were cord operated.) Seems to pull less and cut better than other shavers I've used.

                                                              About 2 years ago I ordered this shaver, and it is the second order that I placed.I love it. The battery consumption is very low. The shave is smooth, and comfortable. So I decided to get the second one in case this product goes out of market. I highly recommend this shaver.

He was told how well it shaves and it's great for travel because it is battery operated (we use lithium that work much better). It finally quit working so we ordered the same one. We were a little hesitant because the price was so inexpensive, but decided it was worth a try. It came very quickly and it is exactly what my husband wanted. He is very satisfied and glad he took the chance on it. We bought an extra one for a gift for someone if we were satisfied and we are.

I still use the old one which has a broken drive shaft and it still performs but sometimed the shaft will not align right, so I recently bought a new one. I still have the old shavers which I use a little but they are not as smooth as the Panasonic.

No, it doesn't have multiple heads or a cutter, but it does the job and is particularly easy to handle. And the price is terrific.

It is light weight and comfortable to hold. The battery life is excellent and it only takes 2 AA batteries. I use alkaline batteries and have excellent results. Cleaning the shaver couldn't be any easier. Take the foil off and rince under hot running water. The price of this shaver is the best value I have found.

Please bring ES3833 back with the case so I have a shaver with a pop-up trimmer. For me, double head shavers don't get close enough.

I also like the long battery life, and also the advantage of shaving while traveling on the road, in my car. still have the 10 yr. old, and will be my spare. I rate this razor very high, and good value for the low cost.

Except if there is any stray whisker that has grown passed stubble length, then the shaver very well may not catch it and just press over it ... while leaving a longer stray whisker behind; that is not at all good. I carry a disposable razor just in case, so I don't find an embarrassingly orphaned 1/4" whisker that I missed not seeing. The shaver's cleaner brush annoyingly has no home, so I duct taped mine awkwardly onto the removable clear blades' lid, just so I don't lose it.
