I am still using the OmniShaver Premium that I got back in January! I have to say that it shaves as well in May as it did out of the box in January! It may be awhile before I use my next OmniShaver, which according to people who have tested it before it became available, can give many months of close comfortable shaves.... maybe a year! So the price you pay per shave is very low, and the convenience of not having to buy new cartridges is an added value!
I am a daily head shaver, and while some love the OmniShaver for fast head shaves, I love a baby smooth head. OmniShaver does that! For lather, anything slick will work, and hair conditioner works well for some, but I prefer to whip up artisan shaving soaps with a brush for my best results. I have tried a variety of shave creams, and some work better than others.
If you're interested in OmNi Shaver, I suggest that you check out the many videos that are made by testers on YouTube, and of course from OmniShave. Shaving enthusiasts like me always say "Your Mileage May Vary." What works for one, often works differently for others. It's important to follow instructions, learn the right amount of pressure, and whatever you do, NEVER GO SIDEWAYS with ANY razor! Ouch!!!
I have one negative, and it's not much to me. OmniShaver isn't good for close to my ears. So I give it 4 and 3/4 stars... which rounds up to 5 stars.
