5.0 out of 5 stars It shaves your face well 12 Feb 2009
What more do you want? I'm delighted with mine. It can cope with longer hairs than any of my previous shavers, and delivers a faster and closer shave than any of them as well. The plastic pod carrying case thingy is a bit naff, but the shaver itself feels pretty sturdy to me. It also helpfully has the part number of the foil emblazoned on the body of the shaver in nice big writing so you don't have to hunt out your instruction manual when it needs replacing

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for On the Move use 1 Jan 2010
This product is a great mid range shaver. Easy to use , simple stylish design and gives a good shave. I chose it for "on the go" use. however, when i use it at home i find that I really need to finish off with a quick wet shave with my mac 3 razor. The braun would give the same result but takes a little longer to get there. But its still very good value for money and give this the thumbs up!

2.0 out of 5 stars braun series 3/340 shaver 1 Mar 2009
I bought this shaver as I had been using Braun for many years. I was disappointed with the 3/340 when I got it and had used it for a couple of weeks. It was nowhere near as good as the earlier Brauns I possessed. It just didn't suit my beard, and I've gone back to using my Philips. I wish I had not bought the 3/340. 982mikew

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Design 7 April 2010
Although the Razor works well the Long Hair trimmer has an obvious design fault!
Mine broke after approx. 6 months and was repaired under warranty but has now failed again out of warranty; the failed part I rarely used so it's not a case of constant usage that has resulted in the failure.
The plastic carry case is also of poor quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Braun Series 3 340 electric shaver 28 April 2009
I purchased this make of shaver to replace a similar make that gave me around 20 years of good service before it died. I am pleased so far with the new shaver which I use frequently and I have no complaints.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent shaver at a great price 17 April 2011
I had been shocked at the high prices in Boots for Braun shavers, many over them over 100, so when I realised that I could buy one on Amazon for half that I was delighted. I was also delighted that the shaver was delivered promptly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Build Quality 30 Mar 2011
This was the third Braun of my shaving career. (I've learned not to spend too much - getting new batteries such a pain it's best just to buy a new razor every 6 or 7 yrs.) But this started to fall apart after about a year - trimmer cover, then trimmer, so I've given up and just ordered a Wahl from Amazon. Looks to me like Braun have gone to cheap and Chinese construction. Pity - their razors used to be so good. I'll steer clear of Braun from now on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't deliver 19 Nov 2010
I bought a Braun 340 when my previous shaver packed up. I had used the small battery powered Braun Pocket Go wet and dry for travelling and had found its performance satisfactory for the portability and price so expected a rechargeable shaver with a double head costing much more to be good for a permanent home shaver. I cannot begin to describe how disappointed I was at the 340's shaving result. Basically it gave me a shave that was no better, if not worse, than the battery operated shaver and cost five times as much! The way the shaver operates seems to be to rough up the whole surface of your skin instead of cutting the hair (rather like early hover mowers). It was useless on my neck - I thought cutting longer stubble was supposed to be one of its features - and seemed to pass over other areas with no impact on the hair. So, my stubble came back sooner and my skin was flaky too. The shave was so bad that I complained to the UK distributors. Their response was as pathetically inadequate as the shaver. They replied by giving me instructions on how to shave, despite the fact that I am in my mid-50s, so have been shaving for a long time and have used Braun products before. I have now revived my old Panasonic ES8003 which is the best shaver I've ever used: better even than some wet razors. No more Braun for me!
