Panasonic ES-LA93-K Arc4 Wet&Dry Review

Panasonic ES-LA93-K contains the world’s fastest Linear Motor and will help you to get the most clean and lose shave. It’s guaranteed. The price is about half of Panasonic Arc 5.

When it comes to price, this model is not so expensive and contains the same fastest motor of 14000 CPM (Cycles per minute) as Arc 5. This shaver is going to save you a lot of money and will also help you to get the close and smooth shave, not as close as the latest Arc 5, but the best shave which other shavers fail to deliver.

The main difference between both of these models is that the Arc 5 contains 5-Blade cutting system whereas the Arc 4 contains 4-Blades cutting system. But that single extra blade is going to cost you some significant amount of money on Arc 5, which may not be worthy if you don’t have a very thick beard. Even this model of Panasonic is good for thick reviews, I recommend you to read the reviews from original buyers  on both of these models.

Arc4 vs Arc5

There are some more features other than that which are handy and make the Arc 5 much more expensive than Arc 4. Some of those features are:

  • Arc 5 shaver is faster.
  • It looks more premium and there are Sleeker lines on it which makes it attractive.
  • Arc 5 contains Lift-Tech Foil technology which helps to cover the hardened area easily such as neck and jaw line.

All of these extra features makes the Arc 5 way more expensive. I still recommend you that if you don’t have a thick beard and wants to save some money, go for Arc 4. Ofcourse you don’t require an extra blade if you can be satisfied with a 4 Blade shaver.

What makes the Panasonic ES-LA93 the most Advanced and Affordable?

Panasonic ES-LV81-K Arc 5Panasonic did a marvellous job designing this shaver. It is solid, impressive and really when hold it, you can feel the grip and the premium quality of this product. The shaver shows that Panasonic did a great research before producing such an amazing product.

You will also get a “Automatic Cleaning and Charging Dock” with your shaver. You don’t have to waste your time cleaning this shaver after each shave, all you have to do is to put it in the dock and that will do the cleaning job for you.

Well let me tell you one thing, you can still save plenty of money if you don’t want that cleaning and charging dock. You can go for Panasonic ES-LA63-S Arc 4, which is exactly the same model but that will not come with Cleaning dock.

The Arc 4 provides the best close shaving unless you have a thick beard. If you got a thick beard, I still recommend you to have a look at other foil shavers since rotary shavers are not good for thick beards. I prefer Panasonic Arc 5 or Braun Series 9. However you can still get the close shave, even for your thick beard but you have to shave twice with this shaver. This shaver contains the world’s faster motor, which can cut the smallest part of the hair to get you the most close shave. It helps you to archive the fast and efficient shaving experience.

Things I like about this shaver and things I don’t

Like every shaver got some plus points and some negative, this one is the same. In the chart below, I have mentioned which things I like in this shaver and which things I didn’t.

Things I like in this Shaver Things I didn’t like
Comfortable on your skin and doesn’t irritate at all. So I can say that it’s a great choice for those who have sensitive skin. The head of the shaver is quite big which makes it harder to reach some of the areas.
Multiflex Pivoting Head pivots side to side and back to forth at 360 degree. It will make it easy for you to reach neck and jaw line. The cleaning dock is quite noise and definitely not the best cleaning system in the market.
Arc 4 is providing 40-45 minutes of shaving time , which is around 10 shaves. Charging dock takes upto 1 hour to fully charge it. The shaver itself is very noisy.

Final thoughts about this shaver

Panasonic ES-LA93-K is one of the best Electric shaver out there in the market. But I don’t like the cleaning dock that comes with this shaver. It is too noisy and not a good cleaner out there in the market. I prefer to clean my shaver manually. So I still recommend you to save some more bucks and go for Panasonic ES-LA63-S which is exactly the same thing as this model but comes without cleaning doc.
