The only electric razor I've ever liked.

I bought the 3040s model. Every electric razor I have every purchased has been in this price range, and I've never been happy with an electric razor. I have extremely thick hair which will dull a $50 razor in a week, and they never cut very well to start. I have received a couple of $200+ razors from my pops, and they dull just as quick. I normally use a set of wahl clippers that i regularly sharpen to shave, and will go over with an electric razor or my wife's used razors on occasion. I don't bother with water or cream, just rip it off lol. To get a nice shave properly, takes me about an hour. And, I get razor burn no matter what i use so it really doesn't matter to me. Then comes this razor: i hadn't shaven in about a week, so i went over it with my clippers first. I expected to have troubles and the proverbial pulling of the hair... But, no! My face did not hurt! And it was QUICK! I am usually very paranoid about any blade when it comes to sharpness, i have invested hundreds into electric sharpeners for my pocket knives, kitchen knives, mowers, scissors, shears, drill bits, RAZORS... the biggest downfall of most razors is the time spent cutting. I can't expect a blade to stay sharp if I have to go over my face 100 times and it takes an hour. The heat generated after an hour will affect the temper of a blade that is only thousandths thick. I feel much more confident in this razor as I shaved my entire face in less than two minutes right out of the box, with a completely dead battery. I could actually hear the motor speed dropping as i shaved lol. I'm pretty sure this one will actually stay sharp for a while, which is a great relief. However: It's not sharp as in super close, but you will not find closer in this price range. If you are new to electric razors and looking for an affordable suitable replacement for you or your spouses tedious straight blade, just give up now and call dollar shave club - you're not going to find it. Then there is the edge trimmer: how in the world do they expect you to trim a straight line when the edge trimmer is ALWAYS located on the backside of the razor, in a position that you have to hold the razor in a way that completely blocks your view!!!! This is my FAVORITE FAVORITE, let me say that again: my FAVORITE part of this razor. I saved this part of the review for last as it truly is the best part: the reason I started using clippers wasn't because it was easier or quicker or because of the fact that it had a stainless steel head that i could sharpen, it was actually because I could not find a razor that had an edge trimmer that i could trim a straight line with. The razor was ALWAYS blocking my view, and once i started using the clippers for that purpose i found all the other benefits and eventually gave up on electric razors. That does NOT apply to this razor. The head is on the backside as always, but the cutting edge is set at an angle that you can actually hold the razor out of the way and see exactly what you are cutting. When you have chops, or a beard, or mustache, this is critical - in my opinion. Way to go Braun, I'll be purchasing replacement heads for this razor from now on. I'll probably buy my wife one also.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Nice but apparent design flaw

Like a previous review stated, mint too has an issue with the head popping off far too easily.I clean mine regularly & when I want to remove the head it sometimes pops off like it's been jettisoned! And not just popping off but virtually exploding when it does because of the 3 pieces that make up the head system can separate. Well, mine has separated & I'm not able to re-assemble it properly. It's not a year old & this is very disappointing. I have an electric shaver I can't shave with. I can still use the attachment trimmer, not the shaver. I'm not feeling warm & fuzzy about purchasing a replacement foil knowing that I could just as easily, quite *unintentionally*, do it again. Looking at other shavers.....

No, I do not recommend this product.

Nice...But Has Some Big Issues

You get a good shave. But the shave head pops off the razor unit several times a month, you have to catch it quick or it hits the floor ending up with damage to the blade area. Having had 5+ Braun shavers over the years, this one has some issues and a major battery flaw. The biggest issue is why would Braun develop a product that cannot be used with the cord. You cannot use this razor if it's plug in, so if it runs out of charge while shaving, you have to wait until it's charged to finish shaving....very poor design and big time customer aggravation. This will keep me from buy another Braun shaver.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Your loyalty means everything to us, so we're sorry your shaver isn't delivering you with the same quality you've been used to for over five years. The reason this shaver doesn't work while plugged in is because your model is designed as a wet/dry shaver. Having a cord attached even if you aren't showering with it would be unsafe, so we hope you understand. Our Series 3 Shavers that are compatible with corded and cordless shaving include our 3000BT, 300S, 3000S, 3020S, 3030S, 3050CC, 3060S, 3070CC, and 3090CC. All of these models can be used with dry shaving only. So we can gather a few more details about your shave, as your shaver head shouldn't be popping off, could you please give us a call at (800) 272-8611?

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!!!

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 !
