Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 Men's Electric Wet/Dry Shaver
Panasonic Men's wet/dry shavers are packed with smart, innovative, features that deliver a remarkably close and comfortable shave. The Panasonic ES8243A is a four blade shaving system with 30-degree nanotech blades that enable whiskers to be cut more cleanly at the root. It features a powerful 13,000 CPM linear motor drive system that delivers a cleaner, smoother shave without the pulling and tugging that can occur with slowing shavers and maintains peak power right up to the end of the charge. The curved Arc foils follow the contours of your face for more efficient coverage and maximum comfort. The ES8243A features wet/dry operation so you can choose a quick comfortable dry shave or use it with your favorite gel or foam in the shower for a truly luxurious shaving experience. Other features include a built-in pop-up trimmer, ten Stage LCD and a convenient travel pouch. Replacement Accessories: WES9161PC (Foil), WES9068PC (Inner Blade) and WES9020 (Combo Set).
Arc4 Shaving System
The Arc4 system features micro-thin, stainless-steel foils to capture, lift and hold whiskers while four super-sharp, 30 degree honed blades cut hair cleanly at the base for a close, precise shave. The result is thorough, high-performance shaving, greater comfort and reduced shaving time. Both blades and foils are hypoallergenic and designed to shave gently on even the most sensitive skin.
Flexible Pivoting Head
The shaver head uses side-to-side and up-and-down movements that follow facial contours for more efficient coverage and comfort.
High-Performance Linear Motor
A smoother, cleaner shave is also faster with a quiet, high-performance linear motor designed to shave at speeds of 13,000 cycles per minute (CPM), and ensure peak performance throughout the shaver’s battery life.
Multi-fit Arc Foil
The shaver head is gently curved, which lets the shaver glide uniformly over the chin and along the jaw line. With Arc Foil, you can also move the shaver head in a circular motion—ideal for those accustomed to a rotary shaver.
30 Degree Nanotech Blades
The ES8243A features stainless steel blades that are forged and honed to an acute 30 degree cutting edge to cut more efficiently and cleanly at the root. Hypoallergenic blades and foils provide gentle comfort for sensitive skin.
Whether you're in a hurry or have time to spare, the premium wet/dry Arc4 is ready when you are. Use it for a quick, dry shave when pressed for time, or shave over the sink or in the shower with your favorite shaving foam or gel.
The pop-up trimmer is great for grooming your mustache or sideburns. Just pop up when ready to use and tuck away when you're finished.
Advanced Illuminated LCD Display
Digital display indicates shave timer, five stage battery indicator, cleaning reminder, sonic vibration cleaning mode, Blade and Foil replacement reminder and charge indicator.

Recently I picked up the ES8243A and couldn't be happier. Firstly, the shaver's appearance is much nicer than the online photos... the blue on the front is dark and the sides and back are slightly rubberized black (I think it is black). So if you are holding out for the black model ES8243K (with the cleaning unit) don't bother. The 8243A is the new "four blade" technology - purported to be a faster, closer shave. I have found it is what has been advertized - a faster and closer shave! The "four blades" actually refers to the outer foil, a "squarer" design than the 8168. There are still two inner blades, but spaced farther apart than the 8168. For me, the new head design touches more of my face than the 8168 and therefore cuts faster. I have read on other sites that the foil is a thinner steel, allowing the inner blades more access to the skin. The shave has been fast, gliding easily and for the most part needs only one pass for the reults I want. Big improvement!
Ergonomically the shaver is easier to hold than the 8168 and the head design hits all of the hard to reach areas of the neck.
Have been using it with Billy Jealousy Hydroplane shave cream, a great product. Because you only need to apply a very thin layer it is perfect for an electric shaver.Read more ›
The Panasonic ES8109S 3-blade - barely. Put the Remington blades and cutter (keeping the center blade of the Panasonic) on a Panasonic 13,000 RPM shaver and you would have the World's best electric shaver. The Remington shaved a little closer than the Panasonic and provided a faster shave. However, the difficulty in cleaning, noise and lack of a charging base tipped me to the Panasonic as the final choice.
This is a review of three Panasonic models; ES8243A (4-blade), ES8109S (3-blade) and ES7109, the Remington MS2-390, the Norelco 8260 CC and the Braun Series 5 8995 (8985 & 8975 only differ in displays and cleaning). I have an average beard and have been using electric shavers (foils and rotaries) over 30 years. The models here are no better than any of the other higher quality shavers I've owned. It takes about 10 minutes (no shaver will give you a first-pass close shave) to get to that good dry shave (with or without pre-electric gels/oils) and you do have to put pressure on to get a close shave. This means recharging every 4-5 days. Gels/oils do make the process easier - not faster - and I have reviewed six of them on their Amazon sites.
ES8109S: This 3-blade shaver gives a very close shave, with some work. It does give off a higher pitch `whine', while shaving, that is somewhat annoying, but is not what I would consider noisy. Nor is the cleaning operation noisy. Based upon other reviewers, I was expecting it to sound like a lawn mower, but it is just an occasional buzzing noise as it cleans. The "Arc Foil" design slows shaving (see discussion, below).
ES8243A: I had hoped that the four blades of the Panasonic ES8243A just might be able to give a superior shave.Read more ›
So, my brother purchased this same shaver, but with the cleaning dock. He let me do a trial shave on his, so I have to give him credit for introducing me to this product, even though I ended up buying the shaver without this cleaning dock.Read more ›
