Braun Series 5 5040s Wet & Dry Shaver is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hot and Cold When I received the shaver I was impressed with how sturdy and modern it looked. I immediately stuck it on charge and an hour later I was ready to go. I used it the first couple of times dry and to be honest I wasn't impressed. Just below the chin before the neck was left stubbly. Next time I used it I used gel and again I wasn't impressed. Initially it worked well but it started to clog quickly. Maybe if I rinsed more often it may have been better. This evening I tried it wet and I think this is the best option for me. I have hardly ever used electric shavers and I think for a perfect shave I will still resort to a manual shave. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a clean and refreshing shave, quick. hassle free and easy to use The Braun series 5 wet and dry is well designed, looks very stylish and is an ergonomic fit in your hand. it is easy to use. Again easy to use, and there was more stubble removed in the foam, more than I was expecting, although the toner will have caused the skin to stretch back a bit. The result was very smooth, almost as good as a wet shave with a precision razor. comfortable and good to use anywhere, I found this a pleasure to use and not a chore. Easy to clean and keep this, this is a must for any one who has to shave every day. A joy to shave with. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from no more fuzzz heres the bzzz Never been a fan of electric razors. Tried a few over the years and always gone to wet shaving. Now the braun series 5 wet/dry has been upgraded and im testing it. Dry shave first with 3 days of stubble. No problems for the braun although it left me feeling like I needed to wet shave to finish off. Next time I tried it wet shaving with 1 days stubble. Now the braun steps up to the mark. The addition of a gel foam and this razor shapes up. Its designed well has a nice weight to it. The charge is ample for 3 days of shaves. I would like it to work on the charger lead but as a cordless its a strong contender on the market. For me to be able to wet shave with an electric razor tips the balance. Im giving it a thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After receiving my free trial Braun Series 5 5040s Wet&Dry Shaver After coming home from work on Friday, there waiting for me was my free trial Bzz campaign kit Braun Series 5 5040s Wet & Dry Shaver, it didn't take me long to open the box and put the shaver on charge. After an hour wait it was fully charge and zooming around my dry face attacking my 3 day old stubble. I was amazed I lost my yeti style growth in a matter of seconds. I have now used this Braun Series 5 5040s Wet & Dry Shaver, daily in the shower and on a dry face and have notice that I don't get the shave burn or irritated face, when using a razor or my normal Philips Wet and Dry shaver. I would normally shave every 3 days, as my face lights up if I would shave daily but with the Braun Series 5 5040s I haven’t had any problems so far......... what a great first campaign to start for BzzAgent and I looking forward to my next .  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shaver Had this shaver for 4 days now and easy to set up, just plug in converter plug and left overnight to charge. Turned on the shaver and straight away could feel how close the shaver was cutting without irritating my skin and flowed easily over the contours of my skin all the way up to sideburns and under my nose. Used the trim cutter which is effective but hard to see as covered mainly by the shaver but did a good job. As per the easy instructions then washed the shaver which was quick and simple and a great benefit as cleans it quickly without messing around with the brushes. Overall a great close shave and better than my normal other brand. Very impressed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A worthwhile upgrade from the 340S Having previously owned the Series 3 340S as my first electric shaver, I can honestly say that the 5040S is worth the extra money. The shaver has a more premium feel to it while the FlexMotionTec seems to give a better shave. The precision trimmer hasn't improved from the 340S and I don't think that this works particularly effectively. The 5040S also comes with a small bottle of oil for cleaning which was strangely omitted from the 340S. Overall a good electric shaver, although still not quite as close shave as a manual razor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product and very easy to use This is a great designed product. The look and feel is very trendy and even the packing box looks very appealing. Once charged, it is very easy to use and i do not even need to look at the manual to figure out how to use. The only slightly disappoint comes with every electronic shaver i have been using in the past, which is that it does not have that clean after shave feeling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good after sales support I bought this shaver just over a year ago and it has developed an electronic problem four times. Howevet it is an excellent shaver, and despite having sent it back for service repair three times it is testament to excellent after sales support that I still feel positive about this product. The service centre support is very good, and has returbed the repaired shaver to me within 4 or 5 days. After the ladt malfunction they have decided to send me a replacement shaver. Full marks to Braun. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
