Never tried Fusion...for special events I use Mach 3, all other times it's electric (faster, less irritation, no consumables).

Mach 3 Turbo has much better and smoother moisturising strip. Lasts longer too.

Fusion, no doubt. Whether it's worth the money is up for some debate, but in the long run it's a relatively inconsequential amount of money.

tried both as well as schick quattro. Fusion is dream to shave with. Glides over my face and leaves my face smooth as silk. Closest shave this side of a barber's straight edge blade.
Id say Fusion > Mach 3 >>> Quattro.

Gillette Fusion is terrible. The blades are so close together it gets clogged fast. My personal favorite is the Schick Quattro. Seems that 4 blades is good enough and they are spaced out enough where it doesn't get all clogged up.

The Quattro cut up my face and left it all irritated. I use the Fusion, myself, but if I don't have my Fusion available, the Mach3 is almost as good.

Gillette >>>>> Schick

hah. the exact opposite happens to me, Quattro would get to clogged that id have to knock it against something to get all the hair out. With the fusion all I have to do is hold it under running water. But the mach 3 clogs the least though.

different strokes for different folks

the fusion gave me a closer shave than the mach3. also tried the schick quattro - it barely did anything the way the blades were designed. i still want to try and old school razor, though

I like the shave from the mach 3 turbo better. The Fusion gets clogged too quickly, and it's hard to maneuver around the jaw line well. I love that single back blade though.

I've used both. I've also used the Quattro. I think I get used to the Fusion now. It's a little better. The fusion does get clogged easily, but I now feel it gets me a closer shave than the Mach 3. My only complaint is that it sometimes isnt the most comfortable, although it's nearly neck and neck with the Mach 3.

BTW, I have a Mach 3, M3 Turbo, Quattro, Quattro Titanium, Fusion Power.
