I have had the original Sensor for almost 12 years now, and it still works the best of the ones i have tried. The Sensor 3 blades nick me up more, the Mach 3 again tends to nick me up more as well, and any of the store brand replacement heads for this Sensor just do not work out as well as the original sensor/sensor XL heads. The two blades seem to give me the closest shave without irritation, and after 12 years that alot of shaving. Don't waste money on more expensive newer models, if you have this one or can get this one, blades are cheaper and it does better.

The last of my Sensor razor broke last week, and I was delighted to find them here.

Other reviews have indicated the technology is old, that Gillette's Mach III is far superior, I strongly disagree.

I have two Mach III razors, and can't stand to use either one. The blade sits upright on the handle, and tilts back when you place it against your skin. Take a look around amazon here, I'm sure there are pics you can see for yourself. Shaving around corners, chins, etc., for me... it is just plain awkward. I had to break out my Mach III's while I was waiting for these to arrive, and yep, I still don't like 'em.

True, twin blades may or may not cut as well as three blades, I rarely purchase the 3 blade versions for this razor, I usually purchase the standard Sensor Excel blades (the ones with twin blades), and for me, they work great.

The way this razor functions, I rarely, if ever, get a razor nick... In fact, I'm shaving around a nick right now that I got from that 'superior' Mach III.

Also, the image of this product is not correct. You will get the updated version of this razor. The difference: on the older version, the rubber-like ribs on the side of the razor, are like small lines, on the newer versions, the rubber-like ribs are much larger, but fewer of them. I'm sure by the time you read this, amazon will have updated the image.

Years ago, when this razor first came to market, I can still remember reading about the technology Gillette had to invent to produce this razor. It probably seems a trifle thing now, but years ago, it was truly amazing and to me, still is. Basically that Gillette had to develop a laser to precisely weld small springs to the back of a thin razor blade.

The Sensor Excel is hands down the best razor I have ever used in my life. I have been using it over 10 years now and still it's the perfect razor. I one time bought Sensor replacement cartridges and they are excellent but the Sensor Excel cartridges are definitely much better. I have tried Gillette's newer razors - Mach3, Fusion - and they are OK but I wouldn't want them for daily shaving. But the Sensor Excel is amazing. Whether I have very little stubble or a few days growth, this razor shaves PERFECTLY smooth, EVERY time. Even when the blades are dull, this razor shaves better than most razors with most new blades. In my experience, everyone I know either loves or hates this razor, but many love it, and those of us who love it don't want anything else, ever. I will be very angry at Gillette if they do away with this razor (and I think they have). If that happens, I will buy a Panasonic wet/dry shaver and never use a blade again.

You know I don't know what the heck with all this Gillette Mach-3, Schick Quattro and Gillette Fusion razors. Those razors are dangerous and too sharp. The Gillette Sensor razor is a balanced razor that is safe, shaves close and does not take your skin off having too many blades on one cartridge. I use it to shave my head and I don't feel a thing. I only feel the soft comfort of the blades cutting the few hairs on my head.

I'm glad Gillette kept the Sensor on the market being just a 2-blade razor. I will always stay loyal to this razor for shaving my head because it is safe, easy to use and it does not cut your skin off like the Mach-3, Schick Quattro and Fusion razors. I don't like those razors because for one they are too sharp. I used a Mach-3 and I cut myself while I was shaving my head and I bled for 2 whole hours. Therefore I'm sticking with th Gillette Sensor. The Gillette Sensor is a much, much balanced razor than those suicide Mach-3's Schick Quattro and Fusion razors that will cut you to shreds.

Never mind the 'Lillian' name, I'm her husband and here's my 2 cents:

With all the 3+, 4+ and even 5+ bladed razors on the market.. You'd think there is actually a need for them. Nothing that has come out in the last several years does a better job than the 2-bladed Sensor Excel..

It's silly to spend much more for nothing more.. than to say,"Look Ma.. 4 Blades and it vibrates!!"

I buy these by the 25pack available at Costco. I actually came to see if they sold them by the same quantity, alas Amazon does not.

Se la vi.
