5yrs still going
Had this shaver for over 5yrs without a fault.
With replacement foil and cutter its works like new.
+ replaced the foil and cutter twice - parts still available.
+ battery still good
+ nothing broken
Cant fault Braun quality
Purchased in February 2005 at Harvey Norman for $99.00.
- Series 3 310s
Simple, functional and well-priced
Had to replace my old fancy Braun after 10 years (!) and thought that something simpler might be worth trying. After seeing good reviews of Series 3 model 310S I thought that $79 was more than tempting. So far (3 months) the shaver has been performing very nicely. Easy to clean, the battery lasts for several days (although it needed a few charging cycles to gain full strength). There is no pouch.
Best razor I have ever owned
I bought my 310 at Walgreens for 41.99. The best money I've ever spent. I was shaving 2 times a day with cheap disposable razors. I shaved with my braun wensday and didn't need to shave again until friday. Now that's a close shave. I love it.
What more could a man want than not having to clean his own shaver - ever? It gives me a nice close shave and then it cleans itself. Perfect. I recommend getting the replacement cartridges (for cleaning) off ebay to save money in the long run.
- Series 3 3010s
I bought this four weeks ago, after my previous Philips model died. I've used various Philips shavers for the last 12 years but thought that I'd try something new this time, as the last 2 Philips models only lasted a couple of years each.
I paid $99 for this model from The Good Guys. Upon getting it home I was disappointed that there was no long hair trimmer - that's reserved for the more expensive models. I just assumed it would have one, so it's my mistake for not reading the description on the box closely enough prior to purchasing.
A ...full charge lasts for two weeks for me. I spend a couple of minutes per day using the shaver, so that's about 30 minutes of use before recharging. It's never actually run out of power, but I have noticed the light flashing to indicate that it's time to recharge. It shaves very closely - significantly closer than any of the Philips models that I've used over the last decade. I wonder how long it will keep this up - perhaps over time the blades will blunt and not be as effective? Time will tell. The biggest plus for me is that I have sensitive skin and for the last 30 years I've had a red blotchy neck for a couple of hours after shaving. But not any more! I don't know how it does it, but this doesn't irritate my skin at all. So, after four weeks, I'm very happy. This shaver cuts closer and causes less irritation than anything that I've used previously, since I started shaving in the 1980's.
One product that you must buy. Easy to use. Easy to clean. Easy to maintain. It will hardly irritate you if you use it less than 10 mins. Make sure that you regularly clean it every week if you are a heavy user.
Really good shaver
My husband has been using this shaver for a long while now and he is really happy with it. Although he wonders where he can get spare parts like foils and cleanining solution.
The right choice
After 50 years of using razor blades i thought it a good time to change to electric. After looking through review after review i realized that i just wanted a good reliable shaver without all the bells and whistles, and decided on the Braun 340s. Although obviously not quite as good as the blade, i am happy i made the right choice.
The ultimate shaver, six stars..
My old Braun shaver finally failed after 12 years,so I found the updated version, for less than I paid all those years back.It's fast , light with 3 floating heads, picks up all the curly hairs and great on stubble.Being a battery model means I am not anchored to a power point while shaving.Can't recommend this highly enough. Would be good for women too, the floating heads make it gentle on the skin.
Inexpensive,( $100), light , rechargeable, fast and efficient.Spares readily available.
Best shaver i have ever used
Had to replace my electric shaver having tried a number of brands my last one was a Braun but needed replacing being happy with the last Braun stayed with the same brand it has proved to be the best shaver i have ever used leaving me with the closest shave yet, it is quiet too, the battery holds a long charge
Closest shave yet, quiet, long charge, comfortable to hold
Bought the Series 380-s last week for $99.00.
Loving the shaver compared to my old Cruzer where the foil had damaged.
Like the 3 blades system. But beware it is sharp and I have cut myself while saving.
I like the wet/dry combination. and worked well with gel.
An hour of charging would last 45 minutes of shaving. It has a led which tells you when to recharge.
Three blades and wet/dry
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
Yeh never by a Braun again. They totally ignored all correspondence when I complained.
my son said it is not shaving he has tried but hair remains?????
Sadly there's no solution. It's an extremely, badly-made, inferior device.
NOTHING you do or don't do can fix it. All I can suggest is get in quick (before your return/refund period expires) and see if you can get your money back.
In several decades of being a buyer and consumer I'd have to say this device comes in at the top of my list for "Worst Purchase Ever".
This is truly baffling. I have been using this shaver for several months and it is perfectly fine. Indeed, if you see hundreds of reviews everywhere everybody is happy. Perhaps it needs a bit of cleaning. Just remove the foil/cutter cassette, wash it in hot water and then reattach. Is there a visible vibration when you remove the cutter cassette? If not, there might be some damage and you should contact your supplier.
