I needed a new razor so my wife got me this for my birthday. The salesgirl in the store talked her into it. The "power" is nothing but a gimmick to sell more razors.
The Fusion razor does not shave as well as the Mach 3 (or my old Trac 2 for that matter). and I wind up with more nicks as well. With so many blades it is difficult to get the whiskers under the nose and the vibration is just annoying. I find the razor works just as well, if not better, with the "power" turned off. The light is especially annoying as it shines in your eyes as you move the razor over your face.
Be forewarned that if you buy this razor you will need a new stand as it is longer than the Mach 3 and will not fit in the Mach 3 stand.

The razor seems cheaply made. The light is annoying and, well, dumb. Really dumb.

I have always used Gillette products for over 20 years and and their blades always got better and better. However the handles (while good for daily use) never had any "personal style and feel" to them. This is where "The Art of Shaving" comes in, their selection of handles are plenty and each ones are different.
I purchased the Fusion Chrome collection with power and black accents to it. The first this I felt different was the weight, it is heavier than the standard handle when you purchase the Fusion set at your local supermarket. But don't worry, it's a good thing. The weights makes the handle balanced so you don't have to press it against your face, instead just let it ride on your skin.
Another part I like are the notches on the handle, it allows you to comfortable hold it and it will not slip.
One thing I found odd is the light (found only on the power handles). The LED light allows you to see if you missed any hairs and what direction (it you wanted to go against the grain).
In my opinion I enjoy everything about this handle plus the black accent makes it look better. The handle and feel is what sold me on this product, however I have no use for the light...but it might come in handy one day.

I was kind of surprised at how light it was when I first took it out of it's packaging but have grown to see that it is perfect or what it does. Very comfortable shave, day in day out!
