I have tried many electric shavers,all in the hope of convincing me to dump the Mach 3 and go Green with Electric!-)All have failed to convince me apart from the Panasonic one which I use. The problem I have found with all of them apart from my Panasonic one, is that they just do not give a clean shave! They all sing about having treble blades to ensure a smooth, clean, close shave but they just don't seem to be able to for me.
The Braun Series 3 does an ok job, but just not smooth enough for what you pay (close to eighty quid) I wouldn't swap my Mach 3 for something like this. I also found the Braun Series 3 very bulky to hold and didn't feel comfortable to hold. I also found it very loud, so much so it disturbed my wife in the mornings!
The shaver comes with a nice case for travel and a brushy and bottle of oil to keep everything running smoothly. Now I know nothing can beat a wet shave, however I did expect a closer shave from the Braun Series 3. It isn't bad at what it does, I just expected better for the price of it. I will use it for them busy mornings where I just don't have the time to have a wet shave, and would take it away for a weekends break, but it wouldn't become my main form of shaving.
An average electric shaver I thought, but if you don't mind that for the price then you won't be dissapointed like me.
