Ok, so what are we talking about in terms of performance? Does it take alot longer to shave with them? Do they shave as close? Is it easy to cut yourself?
A little late to follow-up, but I agree with what Chrevbel said. The blades are cheap and once you develop technique and determine equipment (primarily blades and soaps/creams) works best for you, it results in a much better shave. It will take a good bit longer, especially at first, but the preparation and shave becomes a much more enjoyable experience.
There is a qualifier to the "cheap" assessment though, as it is fairly easy to overdo the experimentation and collecting of razors, blades, creams/soaps, brushes, aftershaves, etc. Granted, a little self-control can overcome this.
I think my favorite part of traditional wet shaving is the use of "old fashioned" soaps/creams and a brush. I'm by no means a person who is overly concerned with chemicals and such, but to me it's better than squirting stuff out of a can. I've had a couple of nicks, but unless I'm very negligent/hurried, I hardly ever have them anymore. Still, sometimes I'm forced to cheat, if running behind.
