In my PERSONAL opinion, I've found the disposable razors to be a lower quality than the cartridges. I generally use the cartridges, but I bought some of the disposables on a trip once when I forgot my razor & I hated them - I got crazy amounts of razor burn from them.
I've been interested in trying these guys[dollarshaveclub.com] but have not heard feedback from anyone who's used them. Anyone here ever try them out? The commercial on their website is fun to watch, anyway!
IDK if they are the exact same, usually the only difference between brands and lines like that are handle design. So if your not sure maybe try and look at some locally or buy a small pack to see. Remember the manufactures make money from the blades not the rest. A lot of counterfeit blades do exist as well.
Sometimes cartridges are indeed more expensive than the disposable version of the same thing. Why? Who knows. Usually just a marketing/sales thing, I would think. I've seen a number of shaving enthusiasts say the blades are the same and complain about it if for no other reason than that it sends more plastic to the landfill.
Check out some shaving forums. (They really do exist!) Since they are enthusiasts, a lot of posts are dedicated to DE (double-edge) shaving, which definitely isn't for everybody.
When someone says they shave with DE because even though it takes three times as long they enjoy the time, that's a sign you're dealing with a Shaving Enthusiast. (tm)
There are a lot of shaving snobs out there but many people just want a good, cheap shave. 100 pack of blades for $9 is great. Takes me 8-10 minutes to shave with a DE resulting in a very smooth shave without cutting myself. That's really not too bad considering I started in August.
Does this make me a shaving snob? It's a pic of my shaving stand that I built to hold my razor addiction purchases (started DE shaving in March of this year).
I actually left a Braun electric to go to DE Shaving. I do find the change refreshing. Used an electric for over 20 years. I find the differing combinations of soaps, brushes, razors, and blades makes the shaving experience sort of fun. I now have about 6 different soaps, maybe 8 different blades, 4 brushes, and 6 razors.
The razor on the right was my first foray into DE shaving. It's an Edwin Jagger razor that was on sale for < $25 (Thanks SD). The others are all "birth year" razors that are over 40 (something) years old.
However, if you are constantly in a hurry, DE shaving is probably not for you.
