Great Shaver

The best electric shaver i have purchased nearly 3 years old and still going. Replaced my double edged razors as almost as good a wet shave and the possibility of a dry one away from a sink, always used wet as dry irritates my neck but no irritation at all using shaving foam. Very close and smooth even after 3 days without shaving. Will always buy Braun over Philips, foils suit my skin better.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Prompt service.

I received a replacement cassette for my Series 3 32B shaver within 3 days of my reporting that one of the foils in the cassette had become disconnected and fallen off while shaving. It had not been dropped or subject to any misuse. The replacement however does not give me such a good close shave as its predecessor but maybe require more bedding in.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Poor product

I bought this product and have been very disappointed by it's performance. It doesn't seem shave as close as I would expect a good product to do as when I put my polo shirt on it still catches in some of the stubble that is left.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Typical Braun Quality

My second Braun shaver - the first having lasted over 10 years. Much better performance, longer battery life between recharges (> 2weeks), and shaves pretty much as close as a wet shave.Still in early stage of its life (3 months), but very pleased so far.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Overpriced - poor build quality

Three times the foil head has seperated during use. Now one of the tiny springs has disappeared and nowhere can I find a reference for a replacement.

No, I do not recommend this product.

dry or wet

I received this wet and dry shaver FREE from Braun®. The handle fits snug in your hand either in the shower where I did not have a problem gripping it wet. The motor is powerful and the battery is long lasting.This was my 1st time ever using an electric shaver.So being inexperienced it took me about 20 min in the shower, using shaving cream to shave my 3 day old beard. It takes a lot longer than using a regular razor. I don't mind the extra time shaving because I really enjoy using this Braun Series 3-3040. The shaver is lightweight and comfortable in your hand. When hitting my chin and nose area, the shaver responded with ease and not one hair was pulled thanks to their Triple Action FreeFloat System.The model was designed for use in the shower, so as expected, it excels when used for wet shaving. Guys who shave daily will have no trouble maintaining smooth skin with this razor. Those who shave a day here and there can also get good results with the razor, but one should expect a lengthier process.My 3 day beard to multiple passed across the thicker parts of my beard. All in all this works pretty good and I have put down my disposable razor for good for this shaver. As time goes by and my experience and speed will pick up , I'm sure I will get my shaves down to under 5 minutes. Thank You Braun for the FREE Shaver [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Best updated versatile razor to date

I received this product free from Braun to review. Right from opening up the package, I liked the way the razor looked. I'm a fan of lighter, bolder colors, so this turquoise razor was very nice. I'm an "on-the-go" person, so being able to shave at the sink, dry or even in the shower was very versatile. I've used braun products before and was currently using a 4 year old razor and was replacing the heads and shaving coils each year. I noticed I had to go over and over trouble spots, especially my neck to shave. The 3040 series definitely is cutting back on how many times I needed to go over the same area. I've only used this for a few days, and will update if I notice any changes. Very good product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Sad disappointment

I was very excited to have received this shaver from Braun. I am a busy individual who is always looking to save time in the morning. I also have very sensative skin. Braun is a brand with a strong reputation for innovative products and my expectations were sadly not met with this product. The shaver does not provide a close consistent shave. It does not cut the hair consistently, forcing me to go over the same spot several times which causes major irritation. I have a 10+ year old Norelco Cool Skin electric shaver in which the blades have never been changed, that produces a closer shave. I ended up cleaning up my face with my old shaver because there were so many stray hairs remaining. The shaver left my face blotchy and red with random patches of hair.

Decent for a asian dude

I'm a asian dude which means unfortunately I'm not able to grow a full beard. This shaver is perfect for my slight mustache and laziness. I like to keep my face smooth and hairless so a quick shave with this Braun is all I need. I don't have to worry about shaving cream or gel. It gives me a nice clean shave without the "5 o'clock shadow". It's a decent buy for the price. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
