Style: Wet and Dry Shaver with Pop-Up Trimmer Verified Purchase
I took some time to research the best value-for-money rechargeable wet electric shaver, and I think the Braun 3040 might be the one.

In term of shaving performance, this is very good, even on dry shaving.
I think people not shaving frequently may be disappointed, as this is not designed for cutting long hairs/beards. However, a precision trimmer is built-in for sideburns etc, and people shaving every day or every few days should be happy.

Compared to the Philips shavers I had in the past, with rounded heads, this seems to perform better, and it's shaving a much wider area in one go.

Other Philips models currently sold on Amazon for a similar price as the Braun 3040 don't include precision trimmers, and take much longer to fully charge, or are just dry models (much harder to keep clean). The replacement blades are also likely to be more costly.

Build quality is very good, and the device feels robust. It's the first time I have a waterproof shaver, and it's going to make proper cleaning some much easier.

If using for wet shaves, or cleaning the head under running water frequently (as opposed to using the provided brush for "dry" cleaning), Braun recommends to put some oil on the foils once a week (oil not provided), else water will make the mechanism too dry. I believe this is good advice as I had the same experience with clippers, but would have been nice to have some oil provided.

Blades/foil should last for about 18-months, according to Braun, and cost about £20 to replace. Item is losing one star because of this, as spare blades shouldn't cost 60% of a new shaver price. Lots of people will buy a new shaver, which is not very green.

Style: Wet and Dry Shaver with Pop-Up Trimmer Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've had a lot of shavers now. It takes a lot to impress me with them. This is a pretty shaver, nice blue bits and lights that shine. Smart buttons etc. Hmmph, nice but it's not going to win me over like that. Nice box it comes in, a lead and a brush...oh and an instruction manual, but because English wasn't the first language I sort of got bored with that pretty quickly. It also has a humungous clear plastic cover. Really big, to cover almost half the shaver. (more on that later)
So, I don't know if you've ever heard the saying (try and imagine this being said in a thick 'New Yoiker' accent) @I've got a Braun and it's never done me wrong'. I like Braun as a make, they're usually pretty decent electrical items...but I'm not going to be swayed by that.
I've been leaving my face to grow for 4 days. It's gone from the tough bristley spikey feel to now starting to feel like a soft fur. (photo's in the image gallery of before and after). My old shaver, a Wahl, would have managed this, but believe me there would have been pain and perhaps a bit of blood. More pain than blood. Especially under the nose.
The Braun takes about an hour to charge to a good strength, but I just leave it for half a day until I go back in the room and think I'd better unplug it (the manual wasn't very clear if you can keep it plugged in or not).
I went straight for under the nose. Expecting tears as the Wahl has a nice way of giving a slight 'tug' thanks to the metal plate between the heads. The Braun has that metal plate too, but it's shaped differently. more like something Paul Hollywood would put as decoration around one of his pies.
Cutting to the chase (boom boom), it was painless. More than that it shaved it first go.

Style: Wet and Dry Shaver with Pop-Up Trimmer Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the Braun Series 3 Model 340s - 4 rechargable "Wet and Dry" shaver.

I have been using Braun shavers (mostly 7 Series) for over 25+ years and so can claim to know how best to use them especially in terms of shaving method. I was pleased to have the opportunity to test a Braun model from the lower end to see whether it is really necessary to pay a fortune (by buying one of the top end models) to get a really satisfying shave especially as they all tend to make the same claims in terms of the quality of the shave..

First impressions were good, a smart and attractive blue and black handset and a similar foil arrangement to that previously used. No fancy extras, no expensive cleaning system, no charging stand, no travel case - just a charging cord, a plastic foil guard, a cleaning brush and a small oil container. ...all that is needed on a basic model. It went on initial charge whilst I read all the claims made about performance and I started to wonder why I had paid such a lot for several Series 7 shavers.

When it was fully charged I left it to try the next morning. I shave daily so the length of my beard is never long enough to cause a razor to struggle. So when it came to the first shave I was a little disappointed with the performance. The shave was patchy and to get an "acceptable" shave took repeated passes and the time taken was in excess of 12 mins. Each day since then I have used the shaver and by today that makes 35 shaves. Regrettably performance has not really improved in fact I have even had to finish off with the 7 Series shaver. One thing I noticed early on was the distinct note change of the motor when it started the shave. I took it away from my face and the note of the motor rose.
