Review of the Braun 340s-4 Series 3 Wet and Dry Shaver

Nice machine, quiet and shaves closely. The trimmer is the best I've ever had. It reaches parts other trimmers don't.

The power cord is disappointing because it does not have a universal connection, and cannot be used with a different shaver.

I do like the idea that the cutting parts have a life-expectancy of 18 months. That is a great selling point. My last shaver was a Remington triple foil, and it had a much shorter life.

Replacements could not be found in a shop. I bought it in Boots and they told me that they did not stock spare parts, because they suggested that most people just bought a new shaver. Well, that's what I've done, but I didn't go to Boots and I didn't buy a Remington.

A Good Shave

Have had 18 months experience of this shaver.

Good shaver, gives a close shave and cleans easily.

4 stars because it is poorly equipped to travel and has a rather flimsy charger base.

A case is needed to securely enclose and protect the foil. Such a case can be purchased at a grossly inflated price but should be provided as standard, because one of the virtues of such a shaver is its portability.
