MSRP $199 Previous low $150 but still $30 more than the previous FP deal on the older model LV65 that has been out for 6 years. This is the LV67 model that came out last fall. Amazon lists both models and the same versions with the cleaning stations on the same page so you have to sort reviews by "Newest" and then still scroll through them to find reviews on this model.

I have a similar model ES-LV5D-K which is not available in the USA but can be imported from Japan. I switched from a Braun series 9 and find the Panasonic provides a closer shave in less time. It does take a few days to get used to the larger 5 blade head.

Is there any reason to pick this one over LV65, which I believe sometimes goes on sale for $99. Patiently waiting to upgrade my 6 year old 4 arc panny. I absolutely love it, without ever changing blades. The only issue is battery doesnt hold charge well for full shave in one session.

Here is the link to the foil on my model which has the "gold" comfort rollers. Not sure why they did not include them on the new USA model in this thread.

If your battery wasn't an issue I would say just get those blades as the motors are the same. I do think they upgraded the batteries in the newer model.

Besides that the main advantages of the newer USA model over the one that goes on sale for $99 is an upgraded foil that provides a closer and less irritating shave (many people in previous threads find the LV65 too irritating to their skin when compared to the Braun series 7&9) although I believe the block cutter blades are the same. A 16D pivoting head versus a 5D. At first I found all the movement to much and there is a setting to lock the head in place while shaving that I did use on occasion during the adjustment period, but now that I am used to it, it allows for a closer more comfortable shave.

Other minor tweaks include the power button that some say is easy to press to off when using the older version, perhaps you could confirm. A textured thumb rest that allows for better grip especially when using wet
