I've been using these razors for a few months now and find them to work very well. I went for the 4-blade version and would say I have an average beard. I do remember it took longer to get them than I would have thought, but they came in a no-frills box, and I did order the 1-year supply.
I'm surprised at all the quality complaints and find they are very good quality and give me a good shave and much, much cheaper than Gillette. Gillette may be a bit sharper and perhaps last a bit longer. I am not in favor of joining a ridiculous club to get a razor to shave with so this program of ordering when I need them appealed to me. The blades each work for about 2 weeks, and I find they are plenty sharp.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
