Great shaver

I've had this for years - like 3+ years - and it still works like new and holds a very long charge. Would definitely buy again but don't think I'll need to anytime soon. Very well made product.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Why in the world did they mess-up the design!!!

I have an old 7505, I thought to replace it with this Series 3, and it won't work unless charged & disconnected from the charge cable. Deal breaker!!! Returning it tomorrow!!!

No, I do not recommend this product.

Good shaver, till battery packs up, then useless

Generally a good product, but the battery cannot be replaced. It's rechargeable, but like all rechargeable batteries it can only be charged a limited amount of time.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Great value for money

I've never used a classic razor blade, but always eletric razors, and exclusivley Braun. My previous shaver was an 8000 series with a clean & charge station. I'm positivley surprised by my new 3040. Despite being "simpler" than my previous one, it feels great in my hand and has a nice sense of quality to it. The trimmer is good for sideburns and for trimming down to a one day beard. I haven't tested wet shaving, but the waterproof design also comes in handy for cleaning: rinse under water, leave to dry, done!

Yes, I recommend this product !

A good shaver

329/5000I have tried this for two months and am positively overrated!On the plus side, I put a simple handling, it's easy to clean and has a good battery life. The shaving head is also followable and therefore does not struggle in the beard, so the shaving becomes soft. It shines well when I have the right strong beard,Good with the built-in trimmer.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Great shaver.

Excellent shave--close, comfortable, smooth. Glides over all shapes of face: chin, neck, upper lip. Overall it just is an excellent product. Just wish this package had a travel bag. Summation: buy it. You can't go wrong.

Yes, I recommend this product !

OK when it's Working.

I purchased this to replace the Remington I'd been using for years, in comparison, it doesn't shave as close but the main problem is that unlike the Remington, this packs in when the Battery is down and doesn't work when connected during charging, so I'm left half shaved until it recharges !

No, I do not recommend this product.
