I bought this to replace the one I broke and it came with a Sensor 3 cartridge as a free trial. I have to say that after using the Sensor 3 cartridge I wanted to throw the regular cartridges out. The better cartridges fit this handle and those are the ones I will be buying from now on.
I own the Gillette Atra (1977), Mach 3 (1998), Fusion (2006) and this razor – the Gillette SensorExcel (1990).
The Gillette Sensor Excel was highly rated in its heyday but with significant improvements in shaving technology today, the Gillette Sensor Excel just doesn’t quite cut it anymore. The newer models of Gillette shavers, the Mach 3 and the Fusion, are vastly superior to the Sensor Excel.
- PriceThe Replacement Cartridge for the Sensor Excel isn’t cheap. Although it costs less than the Gillette Fusion Replacement Cartridge, it costs almost as much as the Mach 3 Replacement Cartridge! (Price comparisons based on the price per cartridge at the retail price as of this writing.)
- ComfortFor increased comfort, the Sensor Excel is designed with a pivoting head and flexible spring-loaded twin blades that conform to the contours of your face. However, the Sensor can also cause some *dis*comfort: The twin blades get dull rather quickly compared to the Mach 3 and the Fusion. It requires more strokes to shave an area than either the Mach 3 and the Fusion, and thus it is more likely to cause irritated skin or razor burn.
- PerformanceWith only twin blades, the Sensor Excel takes a longer time to complete a shave compared to a 3-, 4-, or 5-blade razor. Both Mach 3 and Fusion out-perform the Sensor Excel in shaving speed. (Mach 3 has 3 blades while Fusion has 5.)
* Recommended *Of all the razors, the Gillette Mach 3 clearly hits the sweet spot for performance, comfort, and price (affordability) — i.e. it does a reasonably good job with minimal discomfort at a price that’s not too exorbitant.
—The performance of the Gillette Sensor Excel is subpar in the context of current razor technology. Its only redeeming quality is the relatively low price of its replacement cartridges. – Overall, 3.5 Stars.
