I have a THICK beard, and I can practically grow a beard over one weekend! Drugstorecom sent a trial fusion and I have never looked back. I used to use the Gillette Sensor, and I have it packed away with plenty of spare blades in my travel bag. The Sensor took several passes with opposing directions in order to get a smooth shave. That is now a thing of the past with the Fusion! There are also less chances of cuts because the size of the razor is like trying to cut yourself with a block of wood. Incredibly close shave! The price of replacement blades thru Drugstorecom are ridiculous when compared to [...]! Check out those prices! I was so impressed with the razor that I bought one for my father who is 70+ yrs old. It's perfect for him because he no longer cuts himself with this razor. Oh yeah, this razor also cuts down on my shaving time because I no longer have to make second passes in the opposite direction trying to get the closest shave on my neck (hair pattern seems to grow in big circle beneath my chin). Hope this review was helpful to someone else.

Good Product, Too expensive
The fusion handle is priced well, but the refills are very over priced given that you become locked into the repeat buy. I understand this, so the handle should be reduced or included...Read complete review
The fusion handle is priced well, but the refills are very over priced given that you become locked into the repeat buy. I understand this, so the handle should be reduced or included for free given that one has a captive audience and we have to buy the refills.

Look... Gillette does a good job creting razors and blades that produce a smooth, close shave. However, 5 blades are unnecessary. I mean, where does it stop? 6.7.8 blades? More?
I have been using Gilette products since their two blade razor. In reality, they all produced a very good shave. I suppose it is necessary to do 'something' to create excitement. They build big marketing splashes with each of these "so called" improvements. In reality, the 5 blade system works no better than the 4 blade or 3 blade or, dare I say, 2 blade razor. You won't get a bad shave with this product but save your self some money and stick with the 4 blade Fusion (or 3 blade... if they still make it). If you are thinking the cartidge will last longer, you would be wrong. What happens is that one blade really does the bulk of the work. When it wears, the shave experience degrades and it's time to change the cartridge. That is why you don't need so many blades (i.e. "A chain is only as strong as the weakest link"). You won't notice any difference in the experience with the prior model and you will save some money at the same time.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have been shaving since I was 15, now 51 and this is the best, longest lasting blade I have ever used. I have never had a bad blade that nicked or cut. I have a beard from hell that grows in 9 directions and I get a close smooth shave every time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
– Maintain the close, comfortable shaving experience of the Gillette Fusion razor system with Gillette Fusion Refill Cartridges 8 each. When the built-in Indicator Lubricating Strip on a cartridge begins to turn white, that's the signal that it's time to change blades. A fresh, new cartridge will provide the smooth, even shave, without tugging, that is the signature of this advanced system. Since all Fusion cartridges can be used with any Fusion razor, these cartridges will continue to offer optimum service, in the Gillette razor tradition.
A Design for Comfort and Precision
Ever since King C. Gillette patented his single-edge safety razor in 1901, an advance over the old-fashioned "cut throat" straight razor, the improvements have never stopped coming. With the introduction of the Fusion design, the efficient five-blade shaving surface from Gillette is combined with a flexible comfort guard that helps the blades to follow the contours of the face. On the back of the cartridge is a precision trimming blade, perfect for reaching those tricky places such as under the nose and to maintain an even edge for sideburns.
The Science of Blade Design
Years of research and engineering effort have gone into the design of Gillette cartridge. Multi-blade technology was developed to use the physics of hysteresis when shaving: As the first blade passes over a hair, it pulls and holds the hair shaft above the skin surface, so subsequent blades can cut it smoothly and cleanly. The five-blade array used in the Fusion cartridge is designed to spread the pressure of the cutting edges over a greater surface area. Combined with this design is Gillette's patented blade manufacturing process, which provides a uniform micro coating only 1/100th of a micron thick. This means the cutting edge is so sharp that it cuts through the hair with less tugging and more comfort.
