Our Panasonic ES8243A Men’s 4-Blade Razor

Panasonic does it again with the Arc4 electric razor for Men. This is another best electric shaver that is under $100 and great for sensitive skin. New customer reviews have brought even more to consider. If you are looking for the convenience of an electric shaver as you get away from wet shaving, this might just be the one for you. Panasonic is know for powerful motors and the extra blade on this model really gives you some efficiency.

The Panasonic ES8243A is a four blade wet and dry rechargeable electric shaver that will give you the ultimate shaving experience no matter what kind of beard or skin you have. The Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 is one shaver on the market that promises to provide the closest, cleanest, smoothest shave through its combination of unique innovative features. I was enticed by some of these features – particularly by its innovative Nanotech four-blade design and ultra-powerful motor drive – so I decided to give it a try myself.

The glossy blue color of the razor is strikingly pleasing to the eye, with a contrasting orange readout on the digital LCD screen, making it easy to see the battery time left on the shaver. The digital display also shows how long each shave takes.

Compared to other shavers, the ES8243A is very light weight. It is also very comfortable to operate and the rubbery materials ensure a very secure grip. As far as aesthetics go, I can only be biased as I was always a fan of the futuristic, hammerhead-like design of Panasonic razors. This is no exception and it looks excellent in my opinion, although not as classy as top of the line Braun or Norelco shavers.

The Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 Men’s Electric Shaver has a reliable Panasonic linear motor that runs at 13,000 rpm that will cut through the thickest of beards and hairs to get the job done. Standard electric razor motors usually run at around 8000 to 10,000 rpm, so you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how fast the Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 is.

According to customer reviews, the Panasonic ES8243A Electric Shaver is about as good as it gets. Over 66% of customers who chose to review this shaver on line awarded it the highest possible rating. While there are some negative ratings, the overwhelming majority of reviewers are extremely pleased with this shaver’s performance.

There are certainly a lot of reasons to purchase the Panasonic ES8243A, not least of which is its ability to provide a close, comfortable, and rapid shave. If there is a downside to this model, it would be that it does not have a travel lock switch or an automatic cleaning system, though by increasing the speed of the motor, it can automatically clean itself in a matter of seconds. It has an approximate 45 minute usage time, and takes only one hour to reach a full charge.

When I got the Arc4, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m a skeptic, so I was definitely wary about all the emphasis on the four blades, the extra power and all the other features packed into this razor that promised to deliver such a close, smooth shave. It won’t be the best razor you can buy but for the price, it is very reasonable. Especially if you tend to have a angular face then you will really like this foil shaver as it will give you a close shave.
