THESE ARE HORRIBLE RAZORS!

They clog way too easily, and don't retain an edge for very long.

that was fun while it lasted!

I don't know why these get such a bad rap on here. I picked up one last time I seen them on here ( only because I had already unlocked free shipping)
I figured what the heck.
I used them with my normal shaving gel, and with a up and down movement they were able to remove my facial hair that had been growing. And get this.... no blood left my body.
I may buy 2 or 3 more tomorrow when I get to work.

I would have to say the reverse of the above poster. I have used these for a daily shave and for removing a couple months growth, either way they work great. It takes a little getting used to, they don't take a tapping against the sink like some razors, but once you get used to it, and use soap and water (of course), they remain clog free and sharp for quite some time. Highly recommended.

Blades aren't sharp... Maybe if nobody buys these woot will stop carrying them...

Bought these during a woot-off. The handle broke when I tried to change the blade the first time. Can't attach a new blade now.


[MOD: Contact Remington. I've heard good things from others that have contacted them. ]

Bought these a while back and they suck so bad! More specifically, it's the way it's shape that makes it so Brony. Obviously, all razors miss a spot here but this just completely misses everything. I'm sure there's a technique to it but man...

These are te worst ever. I bought them about two weeks ago. I have spent this whole day trying to remember to send them back to W00T. Pure garbage these are. It's hard to make razor contact with your face. Very uneven shave.

I'm also one of the few that doesn't have a problem with them. They're not the greatest shave I've had, but they're dirt cheap.

I don't have problems with them clogging. I do swish it in a sink full of hot water rather than under the tap, so that may make a difference.

This razor only works if you use it in the shower and rinse it in the shower after each stroke

the blades are very fine and close so the hair gets stuck easy

They are terrible, definitely not worth buying. I agree with others; Woot, please stop carrying this garbage.

Exactly my experience too. These clog up after the first swipe of the razor.

Do not buy these razors if you have an actual beard. I think these might be fine if you only have a few patches of baby fuzz to shave off.

they don't work. blades at too shallow an angle. in order to get a shave that even looks like a shave, I gotta pull against the grain--not good. I gave as gifts before trying-- embarrassing.

Give up already. These are crap. Make them $1 already. Did Amazon stick you with a million units? Or as woot believes, the more you try to sell crap, eventually the fish will bite. Barnum said it best, a sucker is born every minute.

It really disappoints me that WOOT continues to sell this crap, after all the negative reviews. Sometimes we take the risk of an item not turning out so well, but now I'm afraid Woot will sell anything.
I can use a disposable razor several times, but I can't even use these once!! Not at all! They are too bendy and the part below the blades sticks out so the blades don't cut my face.
I'd rather reuse a really old razor than try to manipulate this blade to work.
I bought 2 sets a while back to give one in a military care package, but now that I've tried them, that would be insulting!

I bought these from a similar site - and they are AWFUL... It must be a bad design because the blades are not close enough or angled correctly to give a close shave at all.. DO NOT waste your money....!!

Ok, in all seriousness, can you give a reasonable explanation why, after overwhelmingly negative feedback, woot continues to sell what is clearly a poor product? Is that the new woot business model? Does customer satisfaction mean nothing to you? Or will you just delete my post and ignore this reasonable question?

Generally, more people will take the time to post negative comments than positive.
We sell a lot of them.
Just because it's a repeat sale, doesn't mean they aren't selling.

These are quite possibly the most useless things I have ever purchased.

In the rare instance they are sharp enough to cut through hair, they jam up so quickly it is impossible to continue without swapping the blade out.

I have gone back to the 2 bladed Walmart disposables because they do a much better job.

Sorry, but that's a cop out. No decent product gets this much neg. feedback. And they are only selling to people who are not lucky to see the 90% neg reviews listed here. You are relying on the trust the old woot established by being responsive to its customers, and by being greedy, you will continue to destroy what once was a decent company. Customers are not an endless resource.

Ill do this quick.

Bought them the first time, still using the first head.

Dropped it in the shower and the handle broke. Contacted Remington, they replaced it quick and I got some more blades.

Trick to shaving with these? Shave in the shower, and to clean the gunk out just wipe the blades on your arm/belly/whatever in the opposite direction. Works great, stays sharps, cleans quick.

literally horrible.... the angle that the blades are at just doesnt pick up any hair, sticking to my mach 3. mach 3 might be expensive but you get what you pay for

quality posts: 2 Private Messages faultylogic83

They're not that horrible, you just need to keep rinsing. As far as the angle, I found it to be a helpful transition between cartridges to a safety razor.

It would be easy for me to sign in here again and tell you that these suck.

"These Suck!"

See? That was easy but to be fair let me tell you why I think so. After watching the King of Shaves video, I decided to do my own scientific analysis and shaving comparison.

The shaver I compared it to is the Dixie Plastic Spoon. http://www.samsclub.com/sams/dixie-plastic-teaspoons-heavyweight-white-100-ct/186470.ip It was a close test, but the results were conclusive.

For Value, the plastic spoons cost just less than .04 cents each. The Remington is about .50 cents each. Dixie is 1200% cheaper than Remington.
WINNER: Dixie

For Ease of Use, the Remington has a nice feel but the shape is not very conducive to areas like just beneath the nose, eyebrow or taint.
The Dixie is lighter and as such, equally reactive and responsive in all areas that it was used.
WINNER: Dixie

For life cycle of product, the Remington on a light growth would last about a week. On a 2 or 3 day growth, it barely gets through the first shave. The Dixie spoon lasts indefinitely. I have yet to wear one out (except that time I needed to use it to get at my wife's Pineapple Chobani). Shhh, don't tell her.
WINNER: Dixie

Finally, on Closest of Shave, the Remington slightly edges out the Dixie plastic spoon. The Remington left my face with a few patches of untouched beard. The Dixie spoon was just a little less effective at removing unwanted hair.
WINNER: Remington

For value, ease of use and longevity, the Dixie Spoon is a much better razor than the Remington.

For closeness in shave, the Remington barely scrapes out a win.

Dollar for dollar, the Dixie Plastic Spoon is a much better shaving implement and I would certainly buy Dixie spoons to shave with long before spending another penny on these.

To summarize, my scientific experiment leads me to one result, "These Suck!".

My first post!!!
I like most things I've bought from woot/wine woot/home woot/sport woot/etc....
These are crap though. Takes twice as long to shave because of the endless tapping on the sink to get it cleared. I'm sure this in turn is ruining the blades quicker. I tried rinsing more often and using less shave gel, it helped a little. I still only get 2 shaves per cartridge and find myself going back over areas to get missed hairs.
They just suck and aren't worth any price... maybe free.

I am going to say this again, These are amazing for me. I love the shave on my legs. There are a bunch of people against them, but us that have gotten used to them are happy with the price and the closeness.. So happy with my purchase..
