Braun Series 3 340s-4 Wet & Dry Electric Shaver
Braun Series 3 340s-4 Wet & Dry Electric Shaver
Offered by K.K. Electronics
Price: 64.99

4.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good., 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used 2 CruZers successfully over a long period, I wondered if the reviews of the Series 3 would be justified...so far,so good. More power, a better shave, equally long-lasting charge, a better side-trimmer. What a shame that you cannot recharge while shaving as the CruZer did, but I can live with that...Overall, a good buy and it cleans easily,too. Thank goodness, though, that I kept my CruZer cleaning brush: this one is mean and insufficient!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy build and large volume., 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to trundle around my 3.5 hp outboard motor. It's sturdy, just about big enough if you unfasten one end and the wheels make handling an otherwise unwieldy outboard from boot to boat much handier. Useful side-pockets for bits and bobs. A good buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy reading for Germanophiles., 14 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An ideal bed-time reader and a worthy German competitor for Pillars of the Earth, for those wishing to keep up their enjoyment of the German language, without getting bogged down in the tortuous tedium that used to beset so- called serious German writing.
A particular delight lies in the description and intrigue , bringing to life the cross-border trading area of the Moselle river and the time-honoured stranglehold of the Church and the guilds in the local economy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cornucopia of rhetorically revelry, 14 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not just a solid source of reference to combat this dumbed-down world of pedagogic mediocrity, but a good read!
Mark Forsyth makes entertaining reference to worthy exemplary authors, whether ancient, established or modern and vernacular, to demonstrate that eloquence is part and parcel of our daily language.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value but watch the size..., 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good value, comfortable and sturdy pair of boots. Having read a previous review, I ordered size 5 for my wife,who normally takes size 4. She found the size 5 rather large, but an exchange pair of size 4 too tight. Amazon exchange service: excellent! Solution: 2 pairs of walking socks inside the larger size boots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and so appetising,just to read!, 19 Oct 2013

The title is generally justified...but minutes can become hours. Well done, Ainslie, for choosing such a broad range of really appetising ingredients and coming up with generally practical instructions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Insider info with a hint at German humour, 19 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best read with a German friend or a good attempt at a German accent...so that you glean the sense of humour intended.If you have lived in Germany or with Germans,it will all ring true.If you're still struggling with the latter, it may help to explain such phenomena as elderly Northern Germans picking the Autumn leaves off their trees lest their garden look untidy..!
Viel Spass!

3.0 out of 5 stars Tote Hose ... eher als funkelndes Domfeuer!, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Schade ,dass ein eventuell richtig spannendes Abenteuer sich so traege entwickeln soll...Bei meiner ersten Erfahrung von Dennis Vlamincks mittelalterlichen Krimiwerk "Domfeuer" war ich stets gespannt. Bei dieser Erzaehlung bin ich eher gespannt,ob ich das Buch beenden will oder was Interessanteres finde...

4.0 out of 5 stars A good romp., 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If not Bernard Cornwell's most tantalising plot, it gives a sound first-hand feeling to the battle of Poitiers.
The to and fro' of medieval campaigns ,at least, grows on the reader. Should our appetites be whetted for a meaty new series involving the Cathar theme or was the opening a mere appetizer?
