I've owned shavers costing several times as much - and they didn't perform any better. All the snazzy features on more expensive units are just noise. Swiveling heads that don't allow you any leverage, messy cleaning systems, etc. Save your money and keep it simple. It's just a shave, for crying out loud!
At this price, what have you got to lose? If you've always used a razor and want to try an electric, here's a cost-effective chance to give it a try.
I dealt with the fact that the foil heads wear out about once a year. I have no problem ponying up $25 to replace. But two of these have just died. One day they just don't turn on. The LED indicator stays lit, but nothing else happens. Both razors weren't abused and probably had 10-20 charges between them. From what I see online this isn't a rarity, happens all the time. Stay away.
But if you are replacing an older Series 3, learn from my mistake. I had an older series 3 that came with the docking station that let you clean and charge it at the same time. Turns out that is a very useful feature for busy people, so I've come to depend on it, even though the little cartridges are kind of expensive and definitely not exactly eco-friendly since they can't be refilled.
After a few years, the trimmer piece broke on my razor, so I needed a new one. Fair enough, they don't last forever. So I wanted to just buy a new razor that fit in the dock I already owned and that still works fine. I look up and find a new series 3 just like the one I had. Get it and come to find that this razor fits EXACTLY in the docking station and will charge it. Awesome.
However, Braun puts a sensor in the docking station to specifically make sure that you cannot use this razor in the clean/charge station. It looks for something on one of the little bumps on the back of the trimmer - if the razor doesn't have it, then no activation of the cleaner. This razor does not have it.
So basically, they force you to buy a new docking station every time the razor dies, you can't just replace the razor and keep the existing docking station. Or at least you can't replace the razor with this one, which seems to be the top of the line series 3 that you can buy without a new cleaner.
This is a good razor, it works well - as long as you keep it clean and change out the heads occasionally. But be aware that Braun has deliberately designed their cleaning system not to work with this razor, because they want to soak you for a new docking station. There is zero excuse for deliberately omitting the thing the dock looks for on this razor - it is an exact clone of my older razor in every other respect.
So now I have to either go buy a more expensive razor to get something I don't really need or give up on the self-cleaning feature and pitch the half-full box of replacement cartridges for it that I already have.
Awesome. Braun sure knows how to treat its loyal customers right. I think I've bought half a dozen Braun razors - but this might be the last one I ever buy.
Great quality and shave is so smooth.
Love that i can use it wet or dry.
I have used both rotary and foil.
I use the rotary on my bald head and prefer foil on my face.
Rotarys get damaged much less easier than the foils, but foils are much better shave.
I have tried shaving with regular razor and cream, i dont understand how anyone can waste their time doing that, along with the cost and the mess.
Try it for 2 or 3 weeks, you will never go back.

As no one can guess that whether you used saftey razor or this shaver. It's completely value for money. I become a fan of Braun with its cheapest line of shaver series. No doubt this is the no 1 brand in the world for electric foil shavers.
Es ergonómica y eso favorece mejores roces con la cara. La cabeza no se safa y es muy fácil de limpiar. Se puede mojar sin problemas y el agua no entorpece el agarre ergonómico. No se atasca con la espuma de afeitar y eso es sensacional.
Recomendable al 100 %
Me encuentro satisfecho con la utilidad que ofrece este artefacto, es rápido, potente y confiable, tanto si lo uso con crema de afeitar o sólo, esto último lo recomiendo sólo si la barba no está muy crecida, un día o dos.
Sin embargo —y esto tal vez sea una particularidad de mi cara— hay algunas zonas de vello facial que resultan realmente difíciles de alcanzar con la rasuradora, principalmente el área del cuello en donde tengo crecimiento en diagonal de la barba. Por lo que no me sirve para dejar esa zona con un afeitado total, debo recurrir a un rastrillo para esa pequeña parte específica del rostro (2cm aproximadamente).
Me parece un buen producto pero no se convirtió en la solución definitiva de afeitado total para mi.
