Summary of my experience after two months of use

Well I've used this machine for two months now and still the same quality at first use but there are some notes to take into account :1. When shaving dry, your skin must be really dry. If the weather is hot and your skin is darker, it is better to use shaving foam. The results will definitely be better.2.If you are always shaving their beard, do not let it go too long. The shaving will be a little stressful. In this case, however, you can use the hair trimmer head on the back of the machine to shorten the hair before shave it. The blades are touching the skin and not vertical.3. Use light oil to lubricate the machine from time to time will maintain its performance4. Do not use the cleaning brush to clean the razor head (it will damage the razor head) but put it under the running water. Put the head up so that the hair comes out easily. If you are flying a dry shave,

Yes, I recommend this product !

Closest and Most Comfortable Shave

I have researched and followed loads of different shaving methods over the years and tried so many different blade and electric products and thought I had found the best in the Wilkinson Sword 5 blade razor. That was the closest and most comfortable shave so far. Then I bought this: the Braun S3 S3040s. Totally matches it on shave and even closer still. I have zero irritation where the blade still on occasion did. And cleaning the electric razor is so easy with the wet dry capacity.

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.

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 !

Great Foil Razor

I was in the market for a new electric razor when I got the offer to review this one for free. It's honestly the best electric razor I've used so far. I don't have super thick facial hair yet like I'm sure most of the people trying this product have, so maybe that's why it works much better for me. I've had no problems getting a nice, close shave with this. One of my favorite aspects of it is the precision trimmer on the back. That's really good to use when trying to trim up and even out my side burns.I also really love that I can do it as a wet shave too, because I like to wet and soften the hairs usually before shaving since my skin is so sensitive.

Continued happiness

After using this Razer for a month or so I can say I continue to be happy with it. I am still disappointed that there aren't any atachments for the head for a trimmer. I have come to love the slide up edge trimmer. It gets way closer that my current razor does and the waterproof design is very helpful for cleaning. The razor is gentle enough on the skin that bit does not cause any irratation or ingrown hairs. Until they come out with a head for trimming , I will just continue to use the Braun for cleaning up around the edges. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Impressive

I received the Braun® Series 3-3040 from Braun to try and review. Although I generally don't use an electric razor I was fairly impressed with this item. I have used it primarily for dry shaving and have had good results with each shave. The attached trimmer is also a nice feature. It's not very heavy and is comfortable to hold.
