From the Manufacturer
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.

Let me start by stating that for the first time in my life, I actually enjoy shaving!
Prior to buying this product over 2 months ago, I had been using the Gillette Mach 3 series of disposable blades for almost 10 years. In recent months, I was considering going back to an electric shaver, but I wasn't motivated enough to make the switch. However, I came into a job situation that required me to be clean-shaven every day, but the blades were leaving my face raw and often bloody on the neck so the absolute most I could handle was shaving once every two days. This didn't matter whether the blades were new or old, or whether I used cream or gel.
So I did what I normally do: went onto Amazon.com (or .ca) and researched. I zeroed-in on the Braun Series 7 shavers because I had used Philips rotary shavers prior to 10 years ago and wasn't impressed with the quality of shave, plus the rotary blades were a time-waster to pull apart and clean. I'm sure technology has improved since then, but I decided that my next one would be a foil shaver regardless.
However, the Braun Series 7 shavers had a rather mixed set of reviews regarding quality and customer service, different reviewers stating how this might be the result of no longer being exclusively built in Germany and also because Braun in North America has been bought out. So I was on the hunt again.
The Panasonic ES8243A caught my eye next because it is rated very highly on the .Read more ›
It is very comfortable holding it and the head has just the right amount of movement. I shave on a daily basis and it takes me between 2 to 2 1/2 minutes for a complete shave. This is less than 1/2 of the time that it used to take me with other shavers.
As far as I'm concerned, I couldn't get a closer shave even with a convensonal safety razor.
I did a great deal of research, read a ton of reviews and opted for this razor without the cleaning mechanism. It took a few tries, but now I can shave in about a minute, very close, without irritation. I also tried wet and dry and much preferred dry, for quality and comfort. Easy to clean, long battery life, feels high quality, easy to operate, and a very pleasant surprise.
I wouldn't bother paying a bunch more for one with the automatic cleaning, this is a breeze....takes 30 seconds and a bit of liquid soap, dry it (I give a shake and set on counter for an hour with the foil off) and you're done.
As soon as I gave it to him, he absolutely loved it!
He said it shaves so~~ evenly and smoothly.
It was funny to watch him keep touching his face and say "wow!"
For those wives who are looking for a good shaver that will not irretate men's skin,
I strongly recommend this product!
I'm just so happy to see his smile on this face! It's THE Best!!
For the first time I'm able to shave every day without the pain of razor burn!
Thanks for a great product!!
After 50 years of shaving, I finally am using an electric razor. It is very comfortable, quick and gives a shave equal to any blade.
