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.

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.]

Not bad at all.

I received this product free from Braun to review. The Braun Series 3-3040 is a good shaver, for a quick shave or touch up. This did not harm my face at all; there were no reactions to this razor. I found that no matter how hard I tried there were certain spots that it just left hair behind. The shaver does not provide a close consistent shave. I guess it just isn't too good for thick hair. Charging it is easy because I just plug the charger to the bottom of the shaver and it's ready to use a little before an hour. And its water proof you can use it in the shower not plugged in of course. The razor is light and contoured; it’s a good complement for my morning shave routine.

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.]

Unbelievable Foil Shaver!

I have been using this shaver for about a month now. I was very hesitant at first since I was always using only a manual shaver. Each time I use this shaver, which is about once or twice a week, it gets more and more comfortable and easier to use. The charge on this shaver lasts a very long time and I do not have to plug it in too often. It is extremely easy to use, it feels great and after I'm done shaving I look great. I could not be happier with this shaver and I would highly recommend this to ANYBODY that shaves. It is the perfect foil shaver!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Was pleasantly surprised.

I have to say wow! This electric is a major upgrade from my Philips. I used it on a three day old beard to see how it could handle some hair and it did very well. Left me smooth and clear, the wife loved my face afterwards. What I didn't like though, was that I kind of had to go over some spots more than once. On the box it says the charge is supposed to last quite a bit of time so I guess I'll wait and see. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Long Hair Trimmer Does The Job

I have a rather young-looking face so I like to keep a little bit of stubble on it to make me look a little older. That's why I decided to give only the long hair trimmer a try this first time around. After not shaving for a week, I start to look like a dirty pirate so I charged up the Braun Series 3, slid out the long hair trimmer, and went to work. I ended up being pleasantly surprised. With the long hair trimmer only, I was able to rein in a week's worth of growth to a much more manageable length and give me a much cleaner look overall in 6 minutes flat (see the attached before and after). The long hair trimmer's true strength was in the maintenance of my sideburns, which makes sense since those hairs were the longest. It wasn't quite as successful as I would have liked in trimming my mustache hairs under my nose so I did take a star off for that but overall, the long hair trimmer is a great option for guys just looking to clean up a look while maintaining some facial hair.

Great Shave, but a Little Noisy

I was so excited to receive my new Braun Series 3-3040 shaver in the mail!In the BoxThe box contains several pieces, including the shaver itself, a power cord, a cleaning brush, and a protective cap. The first time I picked up the shaver, I could tell that it was well-built. The handle has a rubberized portion, which results in a confident grip, whether you are shaving dry or wet.OperationThis is my first foil electric shaver, so I'm more accustomed to using a rotary-type shaver. That being said, I was a little worried that the "straight" blades would not result in as close of a shave around my chin or other curvy areas. The first thing I noticed when turning the saver on was the noise. It sounded more like an electric buzzer than an electric shaver. It's even noisier when using the trimmer portion. Honestly, the noise was a little intimidating.The Actual ShaveDespite the noise and my initial apprehension about whether the straight blades would be able to provide a close shave on the curvy parts of my face, I was pleasantly surprised after using the razor for the first time. The shaver provided as close of a shave as a manual razor, and the triple action free-float system had no problem gliding across the curvy parts of my face.Clean-upClean-up was easy! Since the shaver is designed for both wet and dry use, I was able to simply rinse the entire unit in the sink. It was a little difficult to clean the hairs out of the shaver using the cleaning brush, but after about a minute of scrubbing, the shaver was good as new!Overall I was happy with this product. The only real concern I had was that it was a little noisy to use. This wasn't really a problem, but it could be a little irritating when shaving near the ears.
