Poor Quality Replacement Blades
This was the second time I have replaced the blades in this very highly rated and very high priced shaver. The origional blads lasted almost a year. The first replacement set lasted about nine months. This set has become dull in less than 60 days. After being a High End Norelco user for over 40 years, I switched to the Panasonic shavers because of the decreasibg quality of the Norelco replacement blades. Now I am finding the same problem with the Panasonic blades. Very dissapointed in this product.

Good, but expensive
Love the shaver, but the blade/foil set lasts only about 8 months, and are ridiculously expensive.

but today I changed the foil and cutter assembly as recommended and its like a brand new shaver
I really forgot just how well my ES-LV 95 shaver worked since I have been using it for nearly 2 years...but today I changed the foil and cutter assembly as recommended and its like a brand new shaver. After retiring my Braun shaver after several years of use and with diminishing satisfaction, and actually having owned several, I went to the more expensive Panasonic and like the old adage "you get what you pay for", the new Braun was night and day superior. Now with the replacement cutter and foil assembly in place I'm back to the best shave in years. I have been using electrics of various brands for 50 years or more and this Panasonic is the best shaver yet.

It works perfectly. The sales person on the phone was very helpful in locating the replacement shaver head and blades when you were out of stock. He had to go to a Japanese source to find it after exhausting efforts to find it in the U.S. Very satisfied with the order.

How long will the great, clean shave last???
Day #1 of using this combination of cutters and foil heads. Great, clean shave. I realize we can only expect the great, clean shave for awhile. We shall see how long the clean shave stays with the shaver.
Just the cutters as I previously reported did not work well at all. Only got one month of service from the cutters. BAD! And they were Panasonic brand. Not sure if they are the same as with this combination set.
Overall, I really like the Panasonic shaver.

Nice Close Shave, Even on Heavy Beards
While the blade and foil units are expensive, they last a long time if cared for properly. The close shave of the razor - which lasts for years - is the best my husband has ever had. He has a heavy beard. This shave close and clean with no irritation. So, he'd rather pay a bit more for the blades and not have to buy a razor every year.

My annual investment in good shaving
Every year on my birthday, I treat myself to a new foil and blades for my Panasonic ARC 5 shaver and it is like getting a brand new shaver. It isn't that the old set is bad, it still gives a smooth clean shave with no shaver burn or beard pulling, it is just the new set is so much smoother and more comfortable that it is very noticeable. The difference makes the purchase feel more like an investment than a cost.

Replace and it's like brand new!
I purchased my Panasonic razor about 2 years ago. They recommend you replace these blades and foils every year, but I didn't listen. Boy I wish I had. I just replaced them. The process was super easy! Two minutes max. And now it's like I have a brand new razor. I'll start doing this replacement every 12-18 months now. Very much recommended.

Keeps Electric Shaver Shaving Well
The electric shaver that this replacement blade and foil set fits is an outstanding shaver. I have previously commented on the shaver. This replacement unit keeps the shaver operating at peak efficiency. If you want to keep your shaver operating effectively, then you need to replace the blades and foil at least each year. I do, and I have trouble with razor irritation, razor nicks, and closeness of shave.

Genuine Panasonic part. Expensive but less so here than anywhere else.
OEM genuine replacement. Shaver is like new again but the original didn't seem to last a full year before dulling.
