The blades aren't the sharpest ever, and it wasn't the closest. But it was definitely the cheapest by far. It's a good daily razor, and it works.

Used for 2 weeks and cannot tell the difference from the higher priced blades. I have ordered 1 for my daughter

This package is a great deal! I love the razor and the shave. Goodbye to Mach III!
Price is unbeatable to all competition. I would recommend this kit for any man that like a good, clean shave.

I've been shaving every day with Gillette Mach III for 20+ years, and decided to try these to save money. It was immediately noticeable that the shave with these was closer than with the Mach III with no loss of comfort. I now have less stubble the next morning when I shave again -- which makes it easier to get a close, comfortable shave. My first blade lasted as long as my Mach III blades -- about two weeks.

I was very surprised how close a shave I got and how long each blade lasts. For the price these razors can't be beat.

These razors are amazing. You will never get more for your money than what you get here. Definitely recommend these to anyone.

Qualifier: I have a heavy beard and rough skin; basically I am your typical old hard nose geezer.
I used to use a Gillette 2 blade system. I got a good close shave with only 2 or 3 bloody nicks a week. The cost of the refills has crept to $1.85 each in the 10 Packs. Since each blade would last only through 7 shaves (1 week), these can only be described as ‘Bloody Expensive”. The sad thing is, I used to think they were actually a good shaving system.
Then I found Dorco. I read the reviews and tried the disposable 4 blade from K-Mart, one of Dorco’s private label clients. I was impressed so I went to the next step and invested into the SXA 1040 6 Blade Cartridge System. I no longer got nicked while shaving. Each blade lasted up to 3 weeks, 3 times longer than the old Gillette blades. At a cost factor of just over a dollar each, this was a great move in the right direction. The only down side is with my heavy beard, the SXA 1040 6 Blade Cartridge System just wouldn’t shave as close as I liked.
I recently reordered and switch to the FRA 1000 and FRA1040 4 Blade System Cartridges. For me, this is the answer. I have been using the Dorco 4 blade system for 6 weeks now. I get a smooth shave, there have been a couple nicks but for the close save I like, it’s worth it. The blades last a full 2 weeks (14 shaves) so this is very cost effective.
By the way, the 4 blade refill cartridges and the4 blade disposables have slightly different blade systems. The angle of the cut on the disposable is a bit higher making a slightly harsher shave. The difference is slight but it can make a difference shaving comfort.
I really like FRA1040 4 Blade System Cartridges. For me they are the home run I have been looking for.

I've only used the blades a few times, but the shave is good and blades stay sharp. I was surprised at the weight and quality of the handle. I was expecting a much cheaper unit, but this handle is very nice. By far better than disposables and right up there with the name brands. I used to try keeping my blade costs under $2.00 per blade. This Dorco is a great value!

I'm not going to say you won't be able to tell the differences between this and a Mach3. You absolutely will. That being said I don't think the difference is such that paying 10x more makes sense.
I highly recommend someone interested in this tries it and forms their own opinion. So long as you're not in the top 10% of thick beardedness, these should work fine.

Tried the 6 blade system but found the blade head too large.
Switched to 4 blade and been very happy since; however add a trimmer blade to the back and I would knock this rating up to a 5 star.
Yes I found the blade seemed less sharp on 1st shave, but held up just as well as Gillette over the shaving week.
