I have had a Panasonic for over 2 years now and love it. After running through a few Norelcos and one cheap Braun, I couldn't be happier with it. If you want to be more cost-effective, I would ditch the cleaning systems. They take up nothing but counter space and require refill cartridges. Since you can rinse a wet/dry shaver, I don't see how much cleaner you need the thing to be.
I have the Panasonic ES8243A which you can get for about $100 on sale. I rinse it after every use and from time to time soak the foil with cover in mild soapy water. No issues ever and have yet to replace the blades on this baby. Only downside is that it lasts only about 50 minutes on a charge, but it does charge super quick. I can get about 8-10 shaves in per charge. Great razor!
