I'd like to add my review for this excellent unit as it seems to not get the attention it richly deserves.

I've extensively used and tested numerous electric shavers the past 2 years. I've used every major model and many lesser known products from $15-$280, including the newer wave of products such as the Braun Pulsonic and Norelco Arcitec.

The Panasonic ES8228S is the shaver on my counter and the one I use everyday.

A marketing problem for Panasonic is that typically their products are only found at speciality retailers like Best Buy, Sharper Image etc. In fact, my purchase of the ES8228S occured when I was delighted to see it at a major US Mass Retailer-Target-at a very reasonable price. I hope this experiment works and Panasonic increases its exposure in stores more familiar to the average consumer. I also hope Amazon continues to sell it online.

My review is for the identical unit for sale at Amazon and you'll have a great experience purchasing here as well.

Ironically, I was not thrilled with the last Panasonic I used, the 8043. However, the ES8228S has made 2 innovations from that model that really seem to mean something.

In addition to the fabulous 13000 rpm motor, the ES8228S line adds the ARC foil of its immediate predecessor, AND new "nano sharpened blades."

Many times terminology and features are thrown around in shaver descriptions. In my experience the combination of the motor, ARC foil and ultra sharp blade truly create a revolutionary experience.

Dry, the Panasonic matches the best shaves I'd previously had; which happened to come from the Remington MS series of shavers...also affordable, excellent units which however lack the elegance of the Panasonic and are much louder.

First off, I don't own this Panasonic ES8228S model, I own the 8109S, but the only substantive difference is that the 8109S is slightly cheaper, is black-and-chrome and does not have wood trim. This is my third Panasonic wet/dry shaver in about 5 years and, by far, this one is the best one yet. I've experimented with other manufacturers' shavers over the years, including Brauns, Norelcos and Grundig shavers, but I've ultimately found nirvana, ok, not quite nirvana, but a most pleasant shaving experience with Panasonic shavers. I love Panasonic's shavers because I like being able to shave in the shower with an electric shaver and a little glycerin based shaving foam (Gilette Series foam in the long silver tube works best for me and doesn't gum up the shaver like gels do). I swear, this unbeatable combination (i.e., shower steam, Panasonic wet/dry shaver and Gilette Series foam) shaves me closer than even the best blades that Gilette offers (at present, the Gilette Fusion) with far less irritation and with no annoying little cuts in conspicuous locations around my face and/or neck.

Just to review, my first Panasonic wet/dry was great and served me well for about 3 years, but when the Panasonic models came out a few years ago with the Vortex cleaning systems, I just had to have one, so I moved on to the model ES8078 wet/dry shaver. The ES8078 served me well for a year-and-a-half - until I dropped that bad boy in the shower earlier this week! 'Nuf said. It didn't break into a zillion pieces or anything, but the motor just stopped working. (It's actually kinda funny because I was so preoccupied with ensuring the safekeeping of that little shaver ever since I brought it home, chiding my poor wife for even looking at it wrong, and then my dumb arse drops the dang thing in the shower.

I have very sensitive skin on my neck, and until recently I couldn't shave every day. A few months ago I began trying different shaving products and techniques in hope of finding something that would work for me. For the last three weeks, I've been wet-shaving with this shaver and Billy Jealousy Hydroplane shaving cream with no irritation to speak of.

No, this shaver doesn't shave a close as a blade, but since for me the alternative was shaving every second day, it's way closer than a blade on one day out of two. It also doesn't deal with long hair very well, so I feel like I can't skip a day. That's the only reason I haven't given it 5 stars.

If the Hydroplane seems too expensive, I've also used the shaver with inexpensive shaving oil with good results. The shave is slightly less comfortable during the act, but doesn't result in any lingering irritation. The oil seems to leave a film on the blades and foil, so more frequent cleaning is needed. It didn't work well with any of the traditional shaving creams or gels that I tried. They seem to clog the works and the shave, while comfortable, isn't very close.

Used dry, this shaver wasn't any better than the many others I've tried over the years. I also can't say that this model is any better than the less-expensive Panasonic wet-dry shavers on the market. What I can say is that used in the shower with the right shaving lube it results in the least irritation of any method I've ever tried.

I purchased this shaver based on reviews. I don't like it as a dry shaver. My beard is stiff and the shaver head is rough on my skin when shaving dry. Also doesn't cut hair quickly dry shaving plus foil can get a bit hot. Wet (shave cream) it does a good job, cuts very close, and isn't as rough on my skin. Replacement cutter and foil are a little pricey. Cleaning unit does fine. I am comparing this shaver to a Braun Pulsonic 9595 and Braun 360 Complete both of which I own and rate much higher as dry shavers. Would I recommend it to a friend? Only if they were going to wet shave. After using this a few months I rate it much higher than I originally did for a dry shave. I shaves very well dry but replacement parts are still pricey. Would give it 5 stars if it wasn't for parts cost.
