I received this shaver (2) weeks ago today.
Before I purchased this, I wondered just how good it would be. I have a (5) year old Braun Series One that I just keep around for a back-up and was not overly impressed with. Also, I found that the replacement foil and blades were expensive. I ended up buying another Remington Dual Foil Shaver which worked nice, but if one sneezes the foil head tears. The replacement foil and blades are not very expensive, but I found I needed to replace them twice a year. So much for inexpensive replacement parts.
So, the 340S arrived and I was extremely impressed! It shaves like any electric...Yes, you have to go over spots (especially the neck) a few times, but I've always done that as no electric shaves as close as a blade. Then again, the electrics don't cut one's face either.
But, this shaver is different. It is small, lightweight, easy to handle, and shaves in a minimal amount of time. Probably the best things I noticed different from this shaver over the previous Braun Series One and the Remington are that the 340S does not get hot at all. The other (2) shavers were burning me at the end of the shaving. The other part is this is the quietest electric shaver I've ever owned and I've owned a lot of them.
One other point, I have used this most every day now for (2) weeks (except going for a three day stretch without shaving to see how the 340S would handle the longer hair, which it did with no problems at all. Did a great job!) and have yet to recharge the battery. Still runs like it's fully charged.
For the performance alone, this is one great shaver. Add in the great Walmart online price and you can't beat it!
