One amazon review said the battery is only good for three years and the unit won't work when plugged in. It was quoted from the user manual. Can anyone verify this?
Definitely not true. Mine is at least 4 years old and still lasts a long time. However, I haven't found a place to buy replacement blades for cheap

I have this from 3 years ago and still get multiple weeks on single charge.

Was waiting for the replacement blades to go on sale, but thinking of picking this up for less than twice the price of replacement blades.

Quote from Parker1974
:
Better than the Braun, you say? Interesting.

I've had my Braun 9 series for a few years now and it seems like its performance has been degrading over time. Over the first year I owned it, it did a pretty good job. But now I find myself going over the same areas multiple times, and there are a couple of spots where it won't shave closely no matter how many passes I make. When I first began noticing the crappier performance, I changed the head - and that didn't help at all. Very odd.

So, I'm considering this Panasonic. I've only ever owned Norelcos and Brauns. Maybe it's time to try something new. Anyone know how this Arc5 compares to the rest of Panasonic's pantheon of electric shavers? Is it worth spending more for the fancier ones (i.e. LV95)?
The LV95 I believe is just the model number that includes the cleaning/charging station. Same electric razor.

I have a similar Panasonic and it has serviced my face well. Highly recommend their shavers. Thumbs up OP!

I have this razor. Works great, however:

Replacement foil + blade is $50

There is a newer model (the one with the gold rollers). It is more expensive, but worth it, because:

This razor is notorious for razor burn on sensitive faces. It is an extremely close and aggressive shave, putting any amount of pressure on the head while shaving can cause breakouts. It gets incredibly hot after 2 minutes of sustained use (10000rpm does that) which worsens irritation.

I only needed to replace the foil and blades once, but the foil separately a 2nd time, (1.5 year ownership) because the foil is so incredibly thin that I somehow dented it without ever dropping it, and this led to improper distribution of force across the foil head.

The newer version uses the gold rollers between the foil crevices to prevent skin from getting trapped and pinching/tearing skin.

This razor also needs to be meticulously cleaned, there is a cleaning station, however I reccomend cleaning after each use thoroughly to prevent issues. The trimmer head that pops out gets more use from me personally at the current moment.

The statement that it does not work plugged in is correct. This is standard for all wet shavers.

I've used regular razors for 20+ years, then switched to this last year. Haven't touched a regular razor since. This thing is awesome!

This is a spot-on review that tracks my own experience. Honestly, $100 is about what it's worth given the minor issues and lack of solid constriction. I had an earlier Arc4 that was much more solid. Two biggest issues for me was how hot it gets so quickly. I had to shave my upper lip first or risk razor burn. Also, I cracked the head that snaps on and holds foil in place as it is quite flimsy and I was merely trying to tap/clean it out. I'd have to see my next Panasonic up close and would possibly return it if same issues. I will admit it is the closest shave.
