I have had another electric razor that I use while traveling. When at home I would use a regular razor and shaving creme --- that is, until recently. I'm 67, retired and have started cutting myself while using the regular razor (you know, all that "hangy down" skin under the chin these days?) My beard grows back fast, so I have to shave twice a day. So I pulled my electric razor out of my travel kit and began using it until it recently died. I went to Overstock.com and purchased the Panasonic ES-RT51-S cordless shaver and have been using it twice a day, every day, ever since. What a great little electric razor! Very close shave. It even has a digital readout on it telling you when it is ready for recharging. My last electric razor had to be recharged every other day. This one, which I use twice a day doesn't need recharging for at least a week, and only takes less than an hour to charge it back up! Great little razor! Like they say, "Buy it, you'll like it!"

I have used this shaver about a week and it works great. My previous electric shaver was as loud as a weed whacker with a bad muffler (seriously) but this Panasonic is about as loud as a hum. This shaver has a very solid fit and finish to it which I really like. It does an acceptable job of shaving and it is comfortable to use. The battery is a NiMH so it should last as a long time. The package arrived in one piece without any drama. I highly recommend this shaver and the price is right.
A gift for my husband, he is delighted with the product. He finds it easy and comfortable to use, and it gives a good shave, from which, of course, I benefit!

i bought it as a gift and the person loved it. he had never had an electric razor before but had heard some bad things about some of them. like how they pull hair instead of cutting it or like needing to be charged constantly. he did not experience any of those things with this and was extremely satisfied with the product and i was satisfied with the price.
Not a very close shave. I have to go over my skin several times to get my face almost as smooth as others I have used....which takes much longer also. A couple of "indents" on my neck that it will not go into, so can't get that area smooth at all. No cleaning brush came with it, which is surprising.
This replaced a razor which I also bought from Overstock costing more than 4 times the price. The old one took me many minutes to get anything close to a real shave, and that was never perfect. This one is amazing. 3, 4 minutes and you're good to go. Recommended with no reservations.
This shaver is a replacement for an older Panasonic shaver and the new one has several great improvements. I would recommend this product to anyone. The service i received from Overstock.com was as great as the other time I did business with them.
There seems to be a time in my life that my beard became tougher to shave. Now is that time. I've tried Braun and Sunbeam and now Panasonic. Of the three the Panasonic gives as good a shave as the Braun, at half the price. I plan on buying the next size larger soon.
