For the first time, Gillette's next generation razor has breakthrough technology on both the front and the back of the cartridge. Gillette Fusion Stealth Power also has a Flexible Comfort Guard, an Enhanced Indicator Lubrastrip, an improved forward pivot and an ergonomically designed handle. The combination of all these technologies results in Gillette Fusion Stealth delivering Gillette's best shave ever.
Gillette Fusion is the first and only shaving system that has breakthrough technology on the front and the back of the cartridge:-
|The front of the cartridge has 5 blades spaced closer together, forming a shaving surface, with a patented blade coating that provides incredible glide and comfort. The blades of the shaving surface are spaced 30% closer together than those of the MACH 3 Turbo. This configuration distributes the shaving force across the blades resulting in extraordinary comfort. In addition to more comfort, the 5 Blade Shaving Surface Technology also engages more hairs, more times with successive cutting action.|
|The back of the cartridge features a truly innovative Precision Trimmer. The Precision Trimmer is a single blade built into the back of the cartridge. To use the trimmer, consumers turn the razor over. In this position the pivot feature is locked, giving consumers control and allowing them to better align and manoeuvre the blade. The locked pivot allows consumers to easily shave tricky places like sideburns and under the nose. The Precision Trimmer is also perfect for shaping around facial hair.|
|Gillette Fusion Stealth features a new Flexible Comfort Guard. The new guard contains 15 microfins--5 more than the MACH 3 Turbo. The soft, flexible material surrounds the microfins creating an outer edge that wraps around the sides of the cartridge. This new Flexible Comfort Guard follows the contours of the face to help the shaving surface comfortably shave close.|
|The Indicator Lubrastrip has been enhanced. Shave by shave, the entire Indicator Lubrastrip and not just one stripe gradually fades from green to white when optimal shave conditions have been reduced. The Enhanced Indicator Lubrastrip is enriched with vitamin E and aloe.|
Gillette Fusion Stealth Power features a new forward pivot. The restoring force of the cartridge has been improved allowing the cartridge to respond more quickly to help follow the contours of the face.
|Gillette Fusion Stealth Power's new razor design provides optimal performance: the weight and balance of the handle have been designed to provide advanced razor ergonomics. Additional highlights of the new razor handle include the following:|
The Gillette Fusion Stealth Power also features a range of unique powered features:-
|While shaving, the razor handle produces soothing micropulses, which help reduce friction and increase razor glide, so you can barely feel the blades.|
|The microchip-controlled battery provides consistent power—shave after shave.|
|A battery power indicator alerts you when battery power is low, so you always have power when you need it.|
|Automatic shut-off turns the razor off after around 8 minutes, in case of accidental activation and to protect the battery during travel.|
|For best results use with Gillette Fusion Hydragel shaving gel and Gillette Fusion Hydracool Aftershave. Always use with Gillette Fusion Power Replacement Blade Cartridges.|

I found this razor didnt cut very well and the fine spaced blades clogged up endlessly. Pretty useless in comparison to regular razors. Someone reinventing the wheel for market share but product is a fail for me.
Does it shave? Sure. Is it closer? Closer than what? Oh, you mean compared to those...ancient 2/3/4-blade ones? Well, not detectably. If it does shave any closer I for one could not tell. And no, the vibration adds to nothing detectable either besides a small humming noise.
And, what is worse, the new head is too big with only a small portion of its surface corresponding to the blades: one has very little control under his nose and chin. It will nick you if not careful.
Similar to digital camera manufacturers who are engaged in the "more-and-more megapixels" marketing war (only to end up with more and more...noise as no one seems to consider whether the lens can keep up or not), the "more-and-more blades" race has reached the point of ridiculous.
So closer it may or may not be, but less comfortable it surely is. I use to shave against the grain my cheeks and under my jawline. And apparently, all these blades and vibration and "comfort strips" make the experience not something to long for.
And, to add insult to injury, if you have any old Gillette blade cartridges knocking around in some drawer, forget about using them with this new holder. Contrary to the previous editions of Gillette blade holders that had retrograde compatibility, this baby will only take new (and more expensive) Gillette Fusion Power Blades.
Just like printer companies, that are eager to sell us their printers below cost - only to charge an arm and an leg for their inks and toners, the shaving blades oligopoly (after all the buyouts, all of ...two major companies remain to "compete") has turned our morning ritual into their mil-cow. Bells and whistles and over-the-top adds do not hide the fact that only some years ago, blade cartridges came in fives (not fours!) and cost less than half of what the new brightly colored and over-marketed new ones!
What is really ironic is that the single blade at the back is so much better than the overloaded front that I was reminded of why, years ago, I had taken the advice of my father and chosen the path of traditional blade holders.
I bought this for a conference trip and kept is as a backup until its blades run out. After about a month I went back to my trusted Safety Razor. Paired with a traditional Badger Hair Shaving Brush and a good Shaving Soap there is simply no comparison in both sensation and result.
After reading various reviews, decided to give this a try. At first thought it was a gimmick with the "5 blades" , but after trying it today for the first time, an very pleased and surprised. The battery makes it vibrate just like an electric shaver, and only the lightest of pressure is needed to shave. I ended up with a clean shave (some places slightly missed as I did not want to put too much pressure and end up looking like I had been fighting), with no cuts at all. I can feel the difference, and see the difference straight way. Next time will use slightly more pressure to ensure an all over clean shave. Very pleased with this shaver and recommended.
I wonder how long the blades will last and when a 6 blade razor will be released?
When I think about it I'm using five blades instead of three - I ought to need to go over my face less often, but I noticed the Fusion Power skipped patches so badly I had to go over my face more often than usual. What I would like to try (Gillette if you're listening) is a vibrating version of the sensor 3 which I suspect would be considerably more comfortable to use
Having used this a week now I do not feel it is much better than my mach 3. The shave is perhaps a touch smoother but this is not worth the premium for the handle or the extortionate price of the fusion power blades.
If you are already wet shaving and you get good results I wouldn't bother changing.
