good for first 2 years
Comments about Braun Series 3 Wet & Dry Shaver:
nice shaver, but after 2 years battery almost died. Now must charge before every shave. 2-3 hours of charging = 10 minuter of shaving :(
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Compact and solid!
Pretty much what you would expect from a mechanical razor but its lightweight, Water proof so you can shave in the shower which is really convenient, Cuts nicely even if you do it quickly so you can shave faster than a standard razor, Stays charged for a surprisingly long time but it does of course become weaker if you do not charge it, Overall for the price you cant beat it, Its solid, Small, Convenient, efficient, Its great. Only downside is it is not as clean of a shave as a regular razor, So if you do not have much facial hair no need for this razor, Just use regular non mechanical razors.

I reviewed several reviews before buying. I chose this one because of recommendations and price. Overall it is a good shaver, but falls short on my neck or very close to my mustache. This is where I use a razor for last few areas.
Why waste money on a Remington
from Buffalo, NY
As a long time Remington user, mine came apart and frankly after getting a Series 3-340s, I wished it had died earlier. What a world apart the Braun and Remington are. Not even close. The Braun is super smooth saving, no irratation and shaves closer than the Remington. Built better, the list goes on and on. For the price, I'll never use another.
Poor reliability and service response
from Palm Bay, FL, USA
I had my Braun 340 for approximately 14 months. It was understandable when I had to replace the foil blade and head, and the wet/dry feature was nice, but about 21/2 months ago, the on/off switch started malfunctioning. The razor, either in the charger or out would come on by itself (wouldn't that have been nice if it had done that in my suitcase when I was flying. They probably would have diverted the flight because of a bomb scare). Finally, it wouldn't come on at all. It is now at a service center where they have quoted me a repair price that is $25.00 more than what I paid for it. No thank you. Back to my Philips/Norelco.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Failed just out of warranty
from Murfreesboro, TN, USA
I have been an avid Norelco user but when my last one died about 2 and a half years ago I decided to give Braun a chance. I was intrigued by the wet/dry option and had heard good things about Braun in the past. I never was as satisfied with the shave quality of the Braun as I was my previous Norelco units, but I made my decision and had to stick with it. Well, that was about 2 and a half years ago. last week for no clear reason I was unable to start my Braun. The switch failed. Even though I knew it wasn't fully discharged I put it on charge and after reaching full charge, I could get it to turn on, but shortly afterward it started on its own and would not shut off. I was able to shave that day, and was thinking that if I let it discharge completely and then recharge before use, I could get by with that for a while. No, the next time around I again could not get the switch to activate and am left with a non-operational shaver. I bought another Norelco and am loving it already.
from Pigeon Forge, TN
Used a rotary shaver for at least 30 years. When it came time for a replacement I debated over the rotary or the Braun. Stuck with the rotary and that was 11/2 years ago. I never got a close shave with it. I replaced it with the Braun 3 a little over a month ago and what a difference. Even the next morning my face is smoother than it was right after a shave with the rotary. Easy to clean, no muss, no fuss, only a really good shave.

Best shaver ever
from Louisiana, USA
I have been using Braun shavers for 20+ years and this is by far the best I have every owned. Does everything very well. Shaves very close, even a two or three day beard. I use mine dry and it works great. Great for all parts of face. When it wears out, I will get another one like it.

The Best I've Ever Used!!
from Howell, NJ, USA
By far, the best shaver I've ever used is the Braun 340 and I have sensitive skin. So smooth and works so good with shave gel or foam.

Best shaver I have ever had
from Auburn, Maine
After having a Braun Series 5 Activator for the past 10 yrs I didn't think the Series 3 would measure up. But to my surprise this is a better shaver than the Activator. It easily gets the hard to shave areas under my jaw line and chin and neck where my hair goes every which way. It is easy to use and clean and has a very strong motor. I love the push button on/off switch. I hope to operate this shaver for many yrs to come.
