They shave incredibly well. The thicker blade doesn't bend when cutting whiskers so irritation is pretty much out.

There is no learning curve, just keep the head flat on your face (minor adjustments might be needed, though).
Whether you should go for the earlier (aggressive) models or the later ones (from type J on) depends on your beard and skin type. I need an aggressive razor to give me a close shave and my skin is fairly sensitive.
You can always go for the adjustable model to find the best setting for you.
My Type E gives me much better shaves than a DE.
Give them a try. I hope you will enjoy them.
