    What are the differences between them? And what shaves faster and closer?
    I have a very heavy + dense beard
    Thank you very much...

    I never used them, so I can't advise you really. But I believe many people feel that the Mach3 was the best cartridge razor that Gillette produced. I also think Mach3 cartridges may be more readily available?

    I’ve used all three and found the Gillette sensor to be the best of the bunch. I don’t use them anymore. The cost of the blades is what pushed me to DE shaving.

    Why the Gillette Sensor was the best? The shaves was more closer? Or just more smoothness/comfort? Tnx..

    As an alternative; I use a Gillette G2 (Trac II in the USA). Cartridges for the G2 are inexpensive (e.g. "Made in Israel" twin blade cartridges), and the G2 / Trac II gives me a very close and comfortable shave.

    I cannot compare to newer cartridge systems, since I never used them. But I am very happy with the performance of the Trac II razor and cartridges (I do not like the Dorco cartridges though).

    Mach 3 is the most economical, most available and shaves comfortably close. I tried Sensor and had a lot of irritation from it. Anything that says "Turbo" is to me just an excuse to hike the price, except in cars.

    I found that I had gotten closer and smoother shaves with it.

    I voted M3 Turbo but there's not a nickels worth of difference between the two .

    Now if the fusion were on the list, I would pick that one as the best of the bunch. However, those cart prices are through the roof.

    Amongst those options, I would pick the standard Mach3.

    I didn't switch to the Sensor as I went from the Atra to the Mach3.
    I have since acquired and used a Sensor, and don't like it as much as the others.

    My favorite cartridge razor is still the Atra, but the TracII is right there.

    To me the shave is more comfortable, and smoother.
