Does the job well, but you might as well go for the 4

After having a chance to use the three, four and six blade razors from Dorco, I have to say that you really can't go wrong with any of them.
The Pace3 cartridges work at least as well as the Sensor 3. As far as shave quality goes, I'd rank them on par with Shick's Hydro 3. The Mach 3 still seems to be a little bit better when it comes to comfort. The Dorco is hardly painful to use, but you do feel the shave a bit more with it. It doesn't have a "trimming" blade like the Pace6, but the cartridge is slim enough not to need it.
The Pace3 easily lasts through ten saves (about two weeks). It could last longer, depending on how tough your beard is and whether you use shaving gel, lotion or soap, etc.
I can only think of two negatives with the Pace3. First, while all Dorco cartridges fit all Dorco handles, the same can not be said for the trays that hold those cartridges. I started with the six-blade razor, so that's the handle I'm using. You can clip the spare six- and four-blade cartridges to the back of the handle's tray, but the tray that holds the three blade cartridges is just too small.
The second problem is that there's really no reason to choose the Pace3 over the Pace4. Tthe Pace4 shaves a bit better, takes fewer strokes, is more comfortable and seems to last a bit longer than the Pace3. In other words, it's just a little bit better all around, and only costs $1.00 more.
Bottom line: If your face isn't particularly sensitive and you want to save every bit you can, the Pace3 does its job well. But if you can spare the extra dollar, you'll probably be happier with the Pace4.
Better then Schick or Gillette

Or any of the very, very over priced blades. The blades are very sharp and last a long time.

Close shaves, no nicks, cleans easily and lasts just as long, if not longer, than the overpriced brands like Gillette and Schick.
Better than Mach3

I was used to using Mach3 blades, went to Walmart and could not find anyone to unlock the razor box so I went home and ordered these. much better shave at a much lower cost, awesome!!
NOT BAD BUT 4 BLADE SYSTEM IS BETTER
Posted by JIM on 2/18/2013
I'VE USED BOTH THE 3 BLADE AND 4 BLADE SYSTEMS, NEITHER IS QUITE AS GOOD AS THOSE OTHER GUYS G&S BUT FOR THE $ SAVINGS I'M LIVING WITH IT. THE 3 BLADE IS A LITTLE NICER TO GET AT THE TIGHT SPOTS BUT OTHER THAN THAT ONE ADVANTAGE, I'LL STICK WITH THE 4 BLADE SYSTEM FROM HERE OUT.

Definitely worth the price difference when compared to Gillette. The only drawback is under the nose is a difficult spot to reach; the angle of the very top of the cartridge appears to be different again compared to Gillette. But overall still worth it based on price.
performs as advertised

Good spacing of blades prevents clogging. Lasts as long as sensor excel. after 2weeks (10 shaves) I changed blades not because I had to, just because I wanted to see if a new one made a big difference, it didn't, so I'll try 15 shaves this time and report again next time I change blades. Just buy it, it's way worth it and the cost outweighs any psychological advantage you might get from using a blade that is marketed to cure some need to belong to a group of elite men who will spend anything for their own comfort. Take the savings and run.
All I could have hoped for

I am very please with the Dorco TRA 1000. I am especially pleased with the value. These blades work every bit as well as either a Gillette or Shick.
I have found that the two blade would work better on my upper lip. Overall these blades are great. I could not be more pleased. Shipping and handling were fast and reasonable.
Go for the 4
Posted by ahanuban on 11/19/2012
This product isn't nearly as good as the 4-blade cartridges. It doesn't shave as closely, scrapes and nicks more, and lasts about half as long. For the small price difference, it's definitely worth it to go for the Pace 4.

Unbelievably close shave AND great price! Goodbye, national brands!!!
