Rated 5 out of 5 by Stemor Fantastic Razor
I purchased this razor approximately 2 weeks ago. I am very impressed. It shaves closer than a blade without the cuts and nicks. I have owned several different types of razors and none gave me as close of a shave as this. It glides over your face and shaves quickly. The cleaning process is simple to do and does an effective job. I definitely recommend this razor.

Got this shaver for my birthday. It is by far the best shaver I have used in a long time. I shave my head , as well as my beard, and it works for that much better than the brand I had before.

Rated 5 out of 5 Quality and easy to clean
Replacement of older model Panasonic electric razor. Simple easy to understand controls. Rences clean after every use and haven't needed to replace blades as I did with older model. Charges quickly and lasts all week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cyberpana The best I had
I have been using Panasonic shaver for the last 14 years, since the first wet/dry. I probably had around 4 or 5 models and always received great customer service from Panasonic (this is the main reason why I always buy their shavers). Last shaver I had was (ES-93) was bulky but a good shaver, so when to broke down I decided to by the new ES LF51. After reading the reviews I new it was good, but I never imagine how good. Love at the use! It shaves smoothly and fast. The most efficient shaver I ever had. Its ergonomics are great, weight and shape are perfect. Much better than my older model. I love it.

I couldn't wait to try this razor once I got home. As soon as I unboxed it, read the instructions, plugged it in and got it fully charged which seemed to take very little time, I shaved in record time. There was some burning but over time my face will get used to this razor.
I researched many and chose this one even though it doesn't seem to be popular. This was a quick shave and the head was able to get the hair under my nose.
I am very satisfied so far after having it for one day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doug My heads new favorite shaver!
Regularly needing to shave my head in addition to my face and neck the ES-LF51-A has quickly become my favorite shaver. Many electric shavers are designed to work well with the face only. However this model with its pivoting head has made shaving my head a piece of cake. It also works much better than my last shaver when used on my face and neck.
This model is also true to its word that it can work in Wet environments. I have had other shavers which claim this as well but have ended up not working after bring in the shower because their seals aren't as water proof as they claim.
I also love how quiet the shaver is when turned on. I have a new born child which my wife and I were sharing a room with for the first few months. I was at first worried that using an electric shaver would wake him, but I was quickly assured after my first use that the quiet humming sound didn't disturb him at all.
I highly recommend anyone in the market for a new electric shaver to give this one a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 First Electric Shaver: Happy so Far!
I have always been prone to razor burn so I hesitated on getting an electric razor. So far I have been pretty happy with my first foray into them.
Panasonic has made good on the promises provided in their feature set and with less expense and long term maintenance than most electrics that I have researched in the past.
Getting started was easy. You take the unit out of the box and plug it in. The LED charging indicator makes it very clear how much charge is left on the unit and when it is done. Charging to full out of the box took about an hour. The unit is pretty easy to figure out. The power button is up front with a lock that switches back and forth around the power button to keep the unit from accidently turning on in a drawer or when packed away in luggage. When engaged it keeps things solidly in place. The head pivots to allow move maneuverability around your neck and jawline but when you want things to be a touch more precise it is possible to lock the head using a switch on the side. The pivoting head allows you to smoothly transition from one portion of your face to another.
Using an electric for the first time took some getting used to but I found that with several passes the multi-blade system did a good job of getting my face smooth. The combination of the linear motor, which was surprisingly quiet compared to most electrics I have heard in the past and the 4 blade system worked efficiently. I got a close shave without hassle and once I was used to it no razor burn. I found that it works best when used every day or two rather than letting your stubble get too thick. When used everyday it took virtually no time at all to get rid of any stubble I may have had. However, if you go several days it still works but takes a few extra passes to let the blades do their work. The 4-blade system was a nice balance of large surface area while still allowing for precision around sideburns and the like and to get extra close on those areas there is a small pop-up trimmer on the back that allows you to groom that extra-fine detail.
Perhaps my favorite part of the unit was the fact that it is wet/dry usable and 100% waterproof. You can touch up in the shower, or use it on dry skin and cleaning is easy as you just turn on warm water, place a little hand soap on the unit and turn it on. It does not require any special oils, solutions or goops which means that long-term costs are virtually non-existent.
