under a TheInsider product test I could also test the razor.
The result vorrweg:
I'll keep the Panasonic ES-LV65-S803 and for my almost 1 1/2 years old Braun CT2CC probably sell.
While the Braun offers the Cooltec technology, which was very pleasant, is it heavy in the hand and is relatively inflexible - especially with regard to the chin.
And dasReinigungsergebis is better by a mile with the Panasonic. When Brown's face remained afterwards always a little scratchy and when pushed open more, the skin is irritated despite Cooltec - the Panasonic, it is not so. The skin is smooth as the so-called baby's bottom - right, have a just two-month-old child at home;) - and with relatively little pressure and little skin irritation, which are visible through reddening.
Although I had in the two weeks now a ingrown hair - which can also in the conversion of the razor and I'll watch.
At Brown, the result of shaving was not much better, as I changed the shaving head - whether it is still so at Panasonic in six months, you will see - if necessary I update the review then here.
Purification was carried out dry by me, the wet cleaning would be an excessive mess and as I would an electric razor blades (as in the past often used) apply.
The razor fits comfortably in your hand, because the shape is very ergonomic and it is a bag for transport and a protective cover for the shaving head in.
The LED indicators are chic and the battery really lasts a long time - one week, he is loose in just three minutes a day shaving (needed after nearly two weeks for the first time to refuel).
And that brings me to the criticisms
1) - the follow-up costs:
The instructions say that you should change the razor after a year the shaving foils and after two years. Problem is that I, at least here at Amazon found only one combo pack a MarketPlace dealer for almost 45 euros and the shaving foils for nearly 33, - Euro (also MarketPlace dealer).
The knife did not individually.
This makes little sense, I have to either buy more expensive then shaving foils or mitwechseln knife directly and must be paid accordingly, although not necessary, according to instructions - I hope it still improves with a larger spread of the shaver. Although the razor here is on sale since mid-2013.
Brown, incidentally - complete shaving head 26 Euro and FBA.
2.) - cleaning:
It may be that cartridges cost more money than manual cleaning - but it's just a lot more convenient. And when Brown held the cartridge loosely two, rather to three months - because the five euros it not matter to me are (cleaned every three days) and the razor was clean afterwards.
At Panasonic, I have cleaned after 1 1/2 weeks for the first time - without the cleaning symbol appeared - no idea if the lamp is broken or you should wait until the chamber is full ... found the time very long. The cleaning went relatively well on the stage, but I think it's not good that oil then comes directly to the skin - because the shaving foils are used with a small amount.
In the cleaning station of the Brown also oil is contained, however, diluted in alcohol and usually evaporates.
3.) - Accessories
And a small holder would have been nice, look better.
4) - Noise
Full borderline is the noise -'m glad that my wife and little daughter in the bedroom next door in the morning to five are not awake. But there is an extremely high frequency and thus relatively unpleasant sound - you can adjust well with a small baby: /
I present my daughter before the weekend with the rocker to the bathroom, so my wife can make food etc and then get ready - the Braun razor she fell asleep before at and relaxed. At Panasonic, you can watch - when the unit is on, it begins right after the face to be forgiven and crying going on - the sound seems to her so in his ears to hurt or at least uncomfortable and also quite noisy - I think is that better.
Despite everything, is for me the shave crucial (although some points as especially the noise are not without) and because of Panasonic scores compared to its predecessor with me and therefore I will raise him, as written above, keep. I only subtract a point for easily be solved in my view defects.
