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 !

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.

First impressions... pretty underwhelmed

This will be my initial reactions to the Braun series 3. I have not used it long term. Additionally there is a break in period for each person when it comes to an electric shaver, if one has been using a normal bladed razor. This is due to the change between wet shaving and dry shaving. Which, Dry shaving can be irritating to one's skin.Anyway, Onward!Design / Construction / Materials4/5It looks really nice. It fit really well in your hand. It feels very natural to use. Almost like a very large bladed razor. Handle is super bright blue, which is nice. High quality materials, overall, pretty nice.First shave1/5Note: This was a wet shave, with shaving cream, per the packaging, you can wet shave with this device. So I did.The photo on this review is from the initial wet shave, and I can tell you I did NOT like it at all. I started with about a week+ beard, which for me is like a 3 day beard. I used the clipper end to de-bulk, which worked pretty well. Then I applied the shave gel, and begun the 'normal' process of shaving.It was pretty bad. Hairs were pulled. Hairs were not cut. I went over areas several times without being able to remove the hair. It was very frustrating for a shaver of this quality/price. I expected a lot better. I ended up having to 'finish' the shave with a traditional bladed (disposable) razor.I am not sure how else to explain it. The shaver did not clean hair from my face as any razor/shaver should.Shave 23/5This went a little better, I dry shaved for this one after about a day. I had barely stubble, which the shaver seemed to do fine with. Marked as 3/5 due to the irritation the blades cause, which truly is 'normal-ish' but when you have an option to wet shave, and you cannot due to the shaver not handling it well, you dock stars off.pretty basic normal shave. Apply lotion afterwards to ease irritation. W00tShave 31/5The Grandpa shaveMy father in law who was visiting (and conveniently forgot his shaver) needed to shave his starting Santa beard (he grows face-hair much faster). He hated it. It definitely could not debulk his hair with the clipper ends. He tried to clean shave after using my beard trimmers to debulk, and again, same complaint. Hair gets pulled, pinched, and irritated. The shaver does not handle the thicker hair. Another complain my father-in-law mentioned, was that with his shaver, the pucks collect most of the hair for him, where the Braun did not. He ended up having a ton of hair on him, after shaving. Short story, he did not like it at all.Cleaning and maintenance4/5This is actually not too bad. Device holds a pretty decent charge. It feels really durable. It is super easy to clean. Does not have the crevasses to collect hair and filth like other shavers. Overall I would say this aspect is pretty good.Final thoughts.I am pretty mixed on this. I feel like I need another couple of days/shaves before I make my final decisions. The shaver does work with minor stubble, and as with any dry shaver, one does need to give some time, for ones skin to get used to it.I will likely update this review with my final thoughts, after I give it a bit more time.

Durability a plus

Braun Series 3-3040 looks and feel so very well constructed. I was able to shave my face without any pulling or discomfort. The battery life is excellent I used it for over 25 minutes and still have battery power left. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The best electric shaver that I have ever had hands down!

Upon receiving the Braun® Series 3-3040 for free in the mail to review I immediately tore open the package to charge it and get to shaving! While waiting patiently for the shaver to charge two things caught my attention while reading the package. The first was the fact that it is able to be used dry, wet or wet with actual shaving cream, and the second being the trimmer that is attached to it. The anticipation of the functionality of this shaver was more than I could handle, and boy did it deliver. The attached trimmer, unlike the trimmers on other electric shavers that I have used in the past, works like a dream! I always have mostly a full beard and use a secondary beard trimmer in conjunction with a shaver, with the Braun® Series 3-3040 I am no longer in need of two tools. The other great thing about the Braun® Series 3-3040 is the fact that it can be used wet or dry. This is an amazing fete in itself. Using this shaver dry doesn't get 100% of the stubble, but, if you get the remaining stubble wet the Braun® Series 3-3040 rids the neck of the rest of what is left behind. Lastly the contouring foils are much better than the standard stationary foils on other shavers. There is virtually no razor burn due to the mobility of the parts. All around this razor comes with my highest of recommendations of any and all razors that I have ever used. I will happily continue to use the Braun® Series 3-3040 weekly and I will continue to sing its praises. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Smooth Face

Braun® Series 3 razor was a super fast shave that gave a nice smooth look. I have sensitive skin on my face and I have problems with skin rashes when I use a disposable razor. This did not harm my face at all, there was no reactions to this razor. I really enjoyed using the razor. I have had different electric razors in the past, but the hair would clog it up and the razor wore out quite fast. I haven't have any issues with this razor so far, and don't see any forseeable issues. So far, so good. I'll keep you posted. #GotItFree [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Supreme Shaver

This was my first time ever using an electric shaver. I found it to be spectacular. It gives you a very close shave, and also features a trimmer, which comes in handy for sideburns, mustache and beard trimming. When I use it, I prefer to shave my face completely. It is very comfortable on the skin. I have a sensitive face, and this Braun shaver leaves me completely comfortable. From here on out, this will be my only tool fit shaving my face. Goodbye to standard razors. I highly recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.]

So excited!

My husband has tried several different shaving system things. He tends to always avoid the old fashioned safety razor, so finding a good electric shaver that delivers time and time again is important. He has had / used 3 different rotary shavers and they all pulled his hair and are painful to use, even when new but moreso when worn. His first shave out of the box gave him a shave closer than a rotary, just as fast or even faster, and without the pain. It's also more conforming. I may update this review after further use but it as so far given him a very good first impression. Easier to clean too. I definitely recommend from all his compliments and all his handsome looks! I received this product for free from Bzzagent for my unbiased opinion. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Not for me

Thankfully didn't pay for this product; received the product for free from Braun. I was really looking forward to this product but it let me down. I had never used a Braun shaver and don't think I will after this. The shave was just not comfortable. I previously and currently own a Philips Norelco shaver and those both low-end and high-end have had a much more comfortable shave than this. The charge time is great however I'd rather have a slower charge and more comfortable shave. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
