Mach3 Turbo blades are blunt out of the pack
Have been a long time Mach3 user - have noticed a significant decline in the quality of replacement blade heads of late - to the point of them being blunt (and painful to use) out of the pack
Will have to change brand I feel - disappointed
Long time mach3 user but the last batch of blades I bought at Cosco was blunt.. brand new blades and they simply blunt, also I found that the plastic clips are very flimsy and weak and break.
Best product ev
Best product ever! clean close shave every time, no cuts and each blade last over a month of shaving every day! I have to write this little extra bit because there is a 30 word minimum.
Not bad at all
I bought this mach 3 turbo shaver from the gold cross chemist and started to use it to shave and found that it glided pretty easily over the skin while using the quality shaving cream gel however, the handle itself proved to be weak and easily snapped so I couldn't use the shaver anymore
At last .. thank you
I've been looking for a replacement for my schick quatttro razor/blades for a while, which used to be great but are now useless. I suspect they moved the place of manufacture. The Gillette Mach 3 turbo is what the Quattro used to be .. very sharp out of the pack and stay that way for multiple shaves. I notice tho that the ones I'm using at the moment are made in Germany, but the ones I see on the shelves at the supermarket just lately are made in Poland .. hopefully not the same thing that happened to the quottro's .. you're on notice Gillette, don't mess with the quality !
It turns out that this razor isn't actually turbocharged. I am shocked and appalled. Gillette will soon be receiving a strongly worded letter expressing my disappointment.
What are these blades actually made of.
I have been using Mach 3 for many years now and can't believe how long the blades will last. The blade that I am presently using has been on the handle since 6/6/2010. I only shave every second day usually but this blade is as good as when I first used it. The "wear trip" is completely gone and it is down to bare metal but this blade is showing no signs of getting blunt even after being used constantly for 21 months now. I will keep using this blade until it gets blunt which on past performance does not seem to be any time soon. This is the first blade that I used out of the package but my being 70 years old and the way that these blades last it possible that this one package may last me for the rest of my life.
This is not fiction. This is fact and I would submit the blade for testing if anybody doubts what I say.

Unbelievably long lasting
I have no complaint whatsoever.
I have been using the Mach3 turbo for many yeas now. The blade (head) that I am using now I have been using for 13 months. The colour strip and the plastic underlay that the strip is laid on has almost vanished but the razor s still cutting as good as the day I first used it.
It does not look like I am going to need to change this blade anytime soon so I am going to keep using it until it finally expires.It is hard to believe that a single blade head can last so long but I can testify to the fact that it is true.
Anybody who doubts that this blade has lasted so long feel free to arrange to have it inspected to verify that this is true.
At the rate it is going the pack that I have could quite possibly last me for the rest of my life.
A good shave doesn't come cheap
This may be the best safety razor from Gillette, but quality doesn't come cheap, particularly when you have to fork out for replacements heads.
The triple bladed heads certainly shave faster than two or one bladed razors, and fewer strokes means less irritation, as the ad says. But they don't shave that much closer than previous designs, and really the only reason I haven't gone back to an older design is that Gillette does not sell them any more.
I compared the Mach 3 directly against the equivalent supermarket brand triple bladed razor and was surprised how little difference there was between the two.
Close shave with fewer stokes
Not good enough to justify the cost
i recently bought myself a mach 3 and i havent looked back since, womens razors just dont last as long, i ussually get one use out of a womens razor on my legs, the mach 3 gives me about 4 or 5 shaves. impressive! the cartridges are expensive but im more than happy to pay the price because they last so long. and they dont cut you either! ladies if your after a good razor this ones your best bet! its well worth the "investment" lol
hands down the best shaver ever, the blades last forever,it doesnt cut you. it comes in a neat little package where you can keep your refills in nice and neat
The Gillette March3 Turbo has been reviewed by Mensbiz as one of the best favoured cartriage shavers. The turbo version has the additional stripe that makes shaving more comfortable. The shave is better with traditional normal shaving cream than using Gilette's shaving foam or gel. Is only a shame that these refills cartriges dont come in cheap and funny enough they can be bought cheaper overseas like Singapore for nearly $4.00 cheaper. By far this is the best from Gillette I have tried so far.
Best product from Gillette, not too over priced cartriage blades thats gives a good shave and last pretty long
blades are still considered expensive by far
