[Newegg] Panasonic Arc3 Men's 3-Blade Wet/Dry Electric Shaver $39.99

Panasonic Arc3 Men's 3-Blade Wet/Dry Electric Shaver ES-RT47-S

(update: according to Chocoflakes, post#68, shipping is free until 1416ET 20171210).


3-blade cutting system with 30 degree blades

Slide-up 45 degree trimmer

10,000 RPM linear motor

100% washable


My old Panasonic (Sanyo branded) shaver broke last year (trimmer switch came out, blades are fine), used about 8 years. New Philips (~$40) sucks, not powerful enough. Gonna try this to see if I can still trust Panny.

I never pushed it too hard, because the gap between foil cover and blade is very tiny, and I cleaned the blades (not wash) after every use. Never replaced the blades for 8 years.

I have a similar model (roughly $100) which I bought from Bestbuy few years ago. I found that it is OK but not comparable to my old Braun in the same price range.

I would stick with a Braun (the ones not made in China - I know it is rare but still just a note).

Which price range? $40 or $100?

I've owned a 100$ Arc3 and a Braun Series 5. Panasonic gives closer shaves in my experience. Recently replaced the Braun with the Arc5 from Amazon US that was on RFD a couple weeks back and it's a noticeable improvement.

I’ve had opposite experience. Picked up a cheap Braun Series 5 from Costco to replace my similarly priced Panasonic and the shave is so much closer. Can’t comment on Arc5, though, because its MSRP is higher than the models I’m comparing. Braun is quieter and holds its charge way longer too (even compared to the Panasonic when new). Will give Panasonic another look when it’s time to replace the Braun, though. The Braun also came with an extra foil and blade unit, which effectively doubles the life of the shaver (I tried to find replacements for the Panasonic and they were almost the same price as a new shaver..).

Are these pretty good to shave your head for a bald look?
You can't shave your head with these

I own a Panasonic Arc 4 and personally, its the best electric shaver I have ever owned. Didn't cost me a fortune yet it has a really powerful motor which gives me an excellent shave

I've owned a Phillips before and it was nowhere near the Panasonic in terms of a smooth shave. Never owned a Braun so can't compare to that
