Rated 5 out of 5Â by Afungi Excellent product at a good price and readily available
This is a replacement for an earlier similar model that had given me excellent service but was past it's best.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by DinkyB Best shave I've ever had.
Close shave / hygienic cleaning / storage tray / convenient for travel. Excellent product.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Johnboy Great shaver
This is without doubt the best electric shaver I have ever owned, it's the nearest to a "wet shave" without the bother.
Overall I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to purchase a shaver.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mushy Easy, comfortable and reliable
I used the previous version of Braun's series 3 and was very happy with the results. I purchased this new version after sadly leaving the old one in a hotel room, but I am glad to say it is every bit it's predecessor and more. As well as continuing the close shave (I have black hair and need to be clean shaven for work) to good effect, the self cleaning bath is great. Although I have only used the self clean twice, it seems a great idea and will hopefully prolong the life of the razor and extend the efficiency of the blades.
It comes with a handy travel pouch and brush, self clean charge or standard charge options and can be operated from mains or its battery.
The only negative is the self charge is noisy, but because it doesn't take long to charge, this is no big problem at all. I just don't charge on self clean at night!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by memorex00 Brilliant Shaver but not for me
When I received the shaver, I was a bit sceptical as previously I have not had a good experience with electric shavers.
Whether it was because my hair is very thin or the shape of my face I am unsure however I have always found that a manual razor blade gives me a much closer shave.
That being said, it was 15 years ago and I was sure that shaving technology has improved since then.
When I examined the contents there was a fairly sturdy stand for the shaver, power cable obviously, the cleaning fluid and the shaver.
The cleaning fluid came in a water tight, re-sealable container which I personally thought was a good idea as the cleaning fluid is alcohol based. So if I went away for a week, I could seal it and the fluid would not evaporate. Or I could take it with me without fear of it leaking.
The fluid came in a cartridge that slotted easily into the stand for convenience.
Examining the shaver, it comes with a solid case for travelling and the build quality is excellent.
It is splash proof and more than likely water proof to everything but submerging it in water so it could easily be used in the shower.
It has a 4 point battery meter on the front that lights up whilst shaving and a precision option that pushes one of the foils further forward than the rest to allow you to shave your moustache without the shaver touching your lips (great idea from Braun).
Everything was easy to set up, a set of instructions came with the shaver but I did not need them as it all made logical sense.
I had to charge the shaver initially for 4 hours to ensure the battery was fully charged, I did not use the cleaning stand for this as it had not been used yet.
Once fully charged, I made sure that I had more than a 3 day stubble on my face as I have said before, my hair is thin and I do not need to shave every day.
The shave itself was very good but not perfect. Where it shaved, it was really close and to be honest, it shaved 95% of my face without a problem however there were a couple of areas that it could not get to without manipulating my face and continuously shaving over the area again and again.
It took around 40 minutes to completely shave my face and when it was done, it was a close shave. In addition, there were no rashes, burns or markings on my face at all, particularly areas where I had to re-shave which I feel I have to mention as a benefit.
Once finished, I placed the shaver within the cleaning module and it started to clean automatically. It can then be left and it will clean it all for you whilst charging the shaver ready for tomorrow. The cleaning operation itself is relatively quiet plus it will cut off power once it has charged to save battery.
My only request for change would be for the ability to charge the razor in the cradle without the cleaning cycle starting.
If I am shaving with this every day, I can easily rinse the shaving head under the tap and perform a proper clean at the weekend. It seems a bit wasteful to clean the shaver every day with the cleaning fluid.
To surmise, it is a really good shaver. It keeps itself clean and sterile whilst it is not being used and it does cut really close without harming your face.
Personally however, it is not for me. What takes me 5 minutes to do with a manual razor, it took 40 minutes to do with this. I have always preferred manual razors as nothing gets closer in my opinion but if you prefer electric razors then I can strongly recommend this one.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by clark2585 Braun Series 3 - Now my number one shave!! Absolutly Fantastic :-)
Wow! What a nice shaver.
I have to admit Iâve never used an electric shaver before. I usually stick to the traditional wet blades, but thatâs all changed now!!
It looks fantastic and feels really good to hold, coupled with the supplied carry case itâs really up there looks wise.
The shaver has a Triple Action Free Float head system, which means the shaver head adapts and moves with every bump and contour of your face meaning it sticks close to the skin which gives a really good close shave, very close if not equal to a traditional wet shave. Its also has a trimmer on the back which slides up, this is great for neatening up side boards, works well.
The manual says the shaver can cope with three days of beard growth, as I'm lazy when it comes to shaving I thought it only fair to put this to the test. Three days of growth and a full charge later off we went, the shaver coped perfectly, it took a little longer to shave as youâd expect but the shaver didnât pull or nick at all.
Iâve never used any sort or shaver cleaning system and I have to admit I thought this was just a gimmick. All you do is drop the shaver in the housing, press a button on the front and the system cleans and charges the shaver. I was well impressed after the first clean, the shaver felt like it was brand new, no hair or oil on the head at all. The only down side is you need to buy the special Braun refill cartridges, but I found three of these on the net for Â£12, and considering how well it cleans and lubricates the head itâs well worth it, especially when I add up how much I spend on blades.
The shaver takes under an hour to charge, either via the supplied cable or on the cleaning station, has a really clear battery display and can be used straight from the cord if you need to which is handy in an emergency.
A great shaver that is highly recommended, now lives on my bed side table and is something Iâll continue to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
