AVOID Hands down the worse shaver ive ever had in 30 years
Simply cannot shave. Even from day one the beard trimmer failed to do what all my previous Braun shavers have achieved. It tugs and pulls even on a short beard. The shaver foil itself seems incapable of shaving unless its wet. Again it tugs and pulls. I really don't know why ive lived with it so long (about a year). It has left me wondering it there's something wrong with it but I lost the receipt. I doubt ill buy Braun again after this one. Really disappointed after being a loyal customer for so many years. Someone suggested they are no longer German made which may explain the drop in quality. From what ive seen and read Braun have washed their hands of any responsibility too.
The only way I could get any sort of fair shave was by first using the hair trimmer even then it was marginal otherwise quite useless so I just abandoned it and went back to an old shaver. One is generous and the minimum allowed. You cant really call ita shaver as it doesn't

The Most Useless Device Ever Made
11th April 2018
Braun Series 3 Pro Skin wet/dry Shaver (model 3040s)
I bought this based purely on all the 5 star reviews it (strangely) had. Perhaps I should have read them more thoroughly.
At the time, it was discounted - and shavers are outrageously and ridiculously priced (for cheap products manufactured in China). They're one of the biggest rorts going (thankyou Procter & Gamble Australia. I wonder how much the poor Chinese factory workers are paid while you flog off a product worth about $40 for upwards of $300, $400, $500 or mor...e). Even at the discounted price it was still upwards of $100. I should have returned it immediately after the first run but didn't (thinking its poor performance might be due to not being fully-charged. I was wrong).
Questions & Answers
Why is it near impossible to get a decent shave with this shaver. I bought this shaver approximately 7 months ago and replaced the foil and cutters once and still cannot get a decent shave. I have tried all suggestions as regards getting a good shave a d nothing works, any suggestions
