Summary: I've had this razor for about two weeks now. I shave everyday and would get ingrown hairs. Since I bought this razor I have not had any issues with ingrown hairs. The razor gives a close shave, for me anyway, and with no skin irritation. I don't use any gel, cream or shave in the shower. Nothing but a dry shave everyday and it works great.
Summary: Not as close of a shave as a Gilette fusion blade, but ok for quick use. Easy to use. Saves on cost of blades so ok for this reason. Dry shave is better for me but more comfortable with shaving cream.
Summary: The 340s works great. Nice close soft shave. I am a long time Braun user. As always, Braun does not disappoint. I have no idea why anyone would use a safety razor when reasonably priced Braun razors are so easily available. Get this or any other Braun. You will not be disappointed.
Summary: This shaver lives up to the reviews I read of being one of the best in it's price range and certainly a sufficient alternative to the several hundred dollar options. Close shave without the need to finish off with a razor blade as I've found with other shavers.
Summary: This is my 3rd Braun Shaver of this category/level. I prefer an electric shaver over disposable or other types of razors. The expense of disposable and/or razors with replaceable blades are much more expensive to maintain than purchasing a moderately priced electric shaver. The 340S boasts wet or dry. My previous two I rinsed them after a shave. With this one I will not use dry only to see if the life of the shaver increases.
Summary: Wish I had bought this razor years ago for it saves time and easy on the skin vs the blade. It is an out dated version but serves my needs very well for a great price. Cheaper on line by $10 than in the stores!
Summary: it's been 25 plus years, that I bought a new electric razor. When I got my new razor and used it that night it was like night and day compared to the old beat up electric razor I had. I feel it's the best razor for the money...
