Product Description

The Panasonic ES-LV81-K mens electric razor includes a five floating, hypoallergenic blade system for close, gentle shaving even on sensitive skin. Each ultra-sharp blade in this electric shaver has been forged and honed to a 30° edge for exceptional durability and sharpness. And the Panasonic shaver's ultra-thin Multi-Fit Arc foils and pivoting Multi-Flex shaving head glide effortlessly along the face, neck and chin. The precision Panasonic ES-LV81 uses a 14,000 cpm linear drive motor which maintains peak power and performance up to the end of every battery charge for even shaving. Ergonomically designed for total ease and control, the ES-LV81-K Arc 5 shaver is also 100% waterproof and wet/dry shaver convenient. When you're in a hurry, the electric shaver provides a quick, smooth dry shave. This advanced shaving machine is designed to be 100% washable and fully immersible in water, too, to perform just as efficiently in the shower or over the sink using your favorite shaving foam or gel. A handy pop-up trimmer adds the perfect finish and detail to sideburns, mustaches and beards, and a LED in the Panasonic shaver's sure-grip handle shows battery status, charge indicator and cleaning and replacement reminder for blades and foil. Cleaning is quick and simple. Just rinse the Panasonic Arc5 under running water and power on to remove or use the included Premium Automatic Cleaning & Charging Station to wash, dry and charge the mens shaver, keeping it ready for the next shave. For grooming away from home, the Panasonic LV81-K comes with universal voltage, AC adaptor/charger and a convenient travel pouch.

I'm one of the minority of reviewer's who actually purchased this product (*definitely increasing since I wrote this though!); I didn't pay full retail (still listed some places as just south of $600), so let's say a little over half that. And the replacement head/foil is 80 bucks. So my comments straight up relate to whether I think I got my money's worth, not just the technical aspects of the shaver. The short version if you don't want to read the list is, yes, I think I did, with a footnote.

I've used just about every new model electric shaver out there in the quest for the perfect shaver, and reviewed several of them here: Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System, Silver, Philips Norelco 1290x/40 SensoTouch 3d Electric Shaver, Black, Panasonic ES-LA93-K Men's 4-Blade (Arc 4) Multi-Flex Dual-Motor Wet/Dry Nanotech Rechargeable Electric Shaver with Vortex Cleaning System, Black. To cut to the chase, there isn't a perfect shaver, at least one that fits everyone's shaving style. This one comes pretty darn close.

First the obvious: this is a foil shaver. If you use a rotary shaver and are happy with the results, stop reading and/or get the Norelco; it's the best one out there. A rotary shave is completely and totally different than a foil experience. If you think there might be something better, read on.

Second, among foils there are dry shavers only, and those that are both wet and dry. The LV81 is both.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Right when you think you've got the best razor out there, somebody has to go and come out with something 3x as expensive. The question then, is it 3x better? Let's find out.

So I've been using the Braun 790cc razor for over about 19 months. I know this because I just replaced my blade at the 18 month mark about two months ago. This ensures it had a fair comparison with the Panasonic, as it was obviously brand new. This is also my first Panasonic. I've been using various high-end Braun razors for many years. Once they were worn out, I replaced them with whatever was the latest and greatest. I like my high-end razors. But when I saw this razor was retailing for $600, I was naturally skeptical that it was worth the price. Fortunately, this was a review unit, as you can see.

First, out of the box you have all of the usual expected items. Razor, blade, cleaning system, refill cartridge, etc. This is all basic, so I won't go into too much detail. You just plug it in, charge, shave, clean. Repeat. I've been doing this for about a month to give it a fair comparison. They also suggest using a new razor for a month to allow your face to get used to it. However, compared to the Braun 790cc, which also had a fresh blade, there was really no adjustment.

That's mostly because they use a similar cutting system. Except the Braun has a single larger cutter and the Panasonic uses 5 smaller ones. But not small enough. The head on the Panasonic is nearly twice as large as the Braun. Which is great for saving time on shaving most of your face, but it does make it more difficult to get into the tighter areas such as between the eye brows or under the nose. The head pivots in any direction that you'd like. Personally I've never found that to be as useful as it sounds.

Is this shaver worth over $300?

Like a Mercedes S-Class, the ES-LV81 is loaded with features, and you're part of an exclusive club because for some reason very few other people own one.

The ES-LV81 does not lock you into $1600 brake jobs or $50 wiper blades, but Panasonic does its level best to make you feel special. For example, the included cleaning system uses a detergent cartridge available only from Panasonic. If the shaver lasts 6-years, you can spend $114 for 2 quarts of detergent. Plus about $400 on replacement blades/foils (see Note 1).

The same shaver without the automatic cleaning system is about $50 less: Panasonic Men's 5-Blade Shaving System (ES-LV61-A).

My base of comparison is the $35 Norelco 7310XL. I've used this and similar Norelcos for 15+ years. The Norelcos are much quieter, but do not shave as close.

PROs:

- Closer shave than Norelco style rotary shavers (see Note 2)
- Wet or dry use
- Switch lock (prevents accidental suitcase-ON)
- Smart charger is fast (1 hour) and energy efficient (zero drain when finished)
- Battery status indicator
- Instructions for hand cleaning with standard soap & water
- Fit and finish is good. Doesn't feel cheap.

OKs:

- Large blade area - 1.0" x 1.6" - good for straight-aways, awkward on curves
- Automatic Cleaning system - Might not be worth the hassle (see Note 3)
- Lithium Ion battery provides 45 minutes shave time (my Norelco is 30 min.
