Summary: Unfortunately the cleaning system is a bit of a gimmick, heavy on consumables (which are pricey), and dependent on being set up somewhere stable : not good for travel in a backpack for a busy teenager, sorry.
Summary: This product does a great shave although I prefer those round three head shavers. However the cleaning system was what sold it to me. Great cleaning system at first then more and more problems with it not working.
It's good, but hasn't convinced me to stop wet shaving.

Summary: I purchased this in November 2011 during one of the Black Friday events. I've been a wet shave and Wilkinsons Sword & Gillette shaver for many a year, but it was leaving my neck red-raw. I purchased this because it came with the charging and cleaning unit in one.
Summary: This was not strictly a purchase, more a replacement. the original product ( purchased ten month's previously) developed a fault, the Beard Trimmer fell off. This aside, the Shaver did what I wanted it to,and the price on Amazon was way cheaper than any other retailer on line.
Summary: When replacing my old Braun Series 5 I thought I'd save a few quid and go for a Series 3 as the reviews seemed positive. In summary I regret that decision, the Series 3 just seems a bit gutless and I need multiple passes over my beard to get a clean shave.
Summary: This new Braun shaver is easy to hold and gives an overall clean shave. It comes with a stand in which you place the shaver to recharge it and to clean it in an alcohol solution. This extra piece of kit is unduly cumbersome and necessitates further cost in changing the alcohol solution packs.

Summary: I'm not the hairiest person in the world and so I tend to use disposable razors, the only times I've invested money in something more advanced were on some pretty meaty looking razors but I soon went back to disposables because I'm fairly stingy and couldn't bring myself to buy 6 replacement blades...
The shaver is okay, but the Clean & Renew thing is a needless gimmick

Summary: Braun have gone to some effort to produce the 390cc-4 Clean & Renew shaving system. It comes in a nice looking box and the shaver and other parts are neatly positioned inside and easy to get out when you open it. The shaver itself looks and feels quite nice in the hand.
Summary: Having owned several Braun shavers, I ordered this Series 3 Rechargeable and am disappointed. 1. The appertures in the foil seem to be too tiny and scattered which does not give as good a shave as my old 1000 series washable 1775, which I replaced. 2.
Summary: Hi I find that I have to allow much more time when performing my morning ritual these days. It does help if you use a good quality after electric shave balm but non the less the old face does seem to get a little hot whilst using this shaver.
