I really wanted to like it, and I could certainly shave with it. One of the guys mentioned to me his impression of it. I thought he described its shave perfectly with one word.
The SE2 was okay on my cheeks and not bad on my neck but my chin, lower lip, and upper lip had a time of it whenever I used the razor. I wanted to use it daily for a month and learn it but I couldn't make myself do it. It as not a fun razor for me. Not saying that means anything as applied to you because it doesn't.
The only blade I've tried in the SE2 is the Proline. I suspect it's different with the various blades. Plus, it's different with various skin and whisker combinations.
Spike, I really hope you love the SE2, and I'm pulling for you.
