Excerpt: bought this shaver with high expectations but after a couple of shaves and after giving it the benefit of the doubt i eventually reallised the shaver is absolutely awful - i kept thinking that it was me or something i was doing wrong until i took it back and bought a phillips for the same price that was instantly better. it left stray hairs all over my face and i had to wet shave after the braun electric shave. please stay away you to will be dissapointed.
Excerpt: Very disappointed with this shaver.It seemed very solid and well made on first inspection and feels good to hold but when using it, the head kept flying off when any resistance was met shaving under my chin.I don't have a particularly awkward or odd chin shape nor is my beard that tough that I have to press on hard. I did perservere with it for several days but finally after it came off three times in one shave, I gave up and returned it to Argos.
Excerpt: I had high hopes for the 340 but it just hasn't lived up to my high expectations of Braun's reputation. I don't have a particularly heavy growth but even then, it struggled to make an impression. By the time I'm finished, my face is red raw with the force that I have to impart to get a decent shave ! Sorry Braun, even though it was heavily discounted, this has put me off your products for life....I value my face too much !!
