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.

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 !

Good shave

I have been using the Braun Series 2 for two weeks now and I have noticed it works great on a two to three day old beard, but not on a week old beard. If you use this shaver every other day it cuts through the stubble with no problem and you only need to run it over your face a few times to get a nice close shave. If you let your beard grow past three days then the shaver starts to struggle at cutting the hair. There is pulling and you have to run the shaver over your face ten to twenty times and even then there are patches of long hair left behind. This is a great daily shaver, but if you are like me and like to go a week in between shaves then the razor blade and shaving cream is the better option. The Braun is easy to clean and does charge up fast which is very nice. The led battery indicator is a nice touch and takes the guess work out of when to know when to charge it. The Braun Series 3 is a very nice well made razor that is the perfect daily shaver. I highly recommend this shaver if you shave daily or a few times a week.

A Great Disappointment

After having a poor experience the first time I used the product, I did not want to give up on it, hoping I would have a better experience under different circumstances. The first time using this product, I had shaved dry, in the morning after having not shaved for 24 hours. The razor left my face with patches of hair and extreme irritation from having to repeatedly shave the same areas over and over. I ended up having to use a regular razor and shaving cream to clean up the mess. The next time I tested the product was after I had already shaved for the day. I have a heavy beard and a noticeable 5:00 shadow at the end of a work day. I decided to use the product to touch up my 5:00 shadow. Once again, the product failed to meet my expectations. It does not cut the hair consistently, leaving stray hairs and patches unshaven. In addition to the poor performance, the shaver makes a mess. It does not hold the hair clippings very well because upon finishing, the sink is covered in trimmings. I would not recommend traveling with this product or using on the go as it will make a mess in your car, suitcase, etc. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

DisAppointed

i think that Braun Series 3-3040 needs alot of improvement. i didnt get a close shave, even after going over it several times i still had stubble. i didnt try to wet yet due to the fact alot of reviews say it cuts you if u do it wet. i'll try it but im scared right now to do so. i believe that it left you with a clean shave that this razor would be great. its easy to clean. easy to charge. holds a charge really good. isnt to heavy or anything. i gave it 1 star because it just doesnt shave like it should.

Good But Not Amazing

Overall, I really wanted to love this razor. The packaging is amazing, and straight out of the box the razor feels substantial and well-built. The little trimming accessory is a great touch and works really well. The razor itself however is good, but not great. It can take several passes for it to remove all of the stubble on your face if you have more than a day or two of growth. If you are an everyday shaver this razor will likely be a great fit for you, but if you are lazy or slack on shaving daily (as I often do) then you may have better success with a different product. I will say though of any razor I have ever used, this provides the closest shave and left my skin feeling soft for a long time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

nice smooth shave

I received the product for free from to try out. Out of the box the shaver was very durable and clean and grip surface is good in the hand. My shave was painless and it worked just as well as the typical razor. This was a great way to take a shave, I could actually see where I was shaving. The shaving process itself with the foil razor was really fast. When I took the extra time with the razor, it did leave my face feeling smooth and without stubble. I hope to be using this shaver for many happy years! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Works great with shave gel

This shaver can be used dry or wet, even in the shower. I prefer to lather my face just as if using a razor.The shaver gets a very nice close shave and leaves me with no irritation, it even gets closer than my razor does.Cleaning is very easy and it has a very high quality feel to it. This shaver works perfect for me and I highly recommend it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

New to electric shavers, enjoy it quite a bit

I have never used an electric razor before. It has taken a little while to figure out the best way to use this razor, but once I figured it out I like it a lot. At first the results were inconsistent. Some times, the shave would feel closer than I ever expected an electric razor would get - very smooth. Other times it would leave me with random hair and I would have to break out my manual razor. Now that I have the technique down, the razor gets just as close as my manual razor but its much easier and I don't have to shop for new razor blades which is a huge plus. I am enjoying using the Braun Series 3 shaver quite a bit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
