Admittedly I haven’t used one in a good 4 years at least. But I remember they used to be very popular and well regarded. Is anyone still using Med Preps?

I use them and love them! I'm an outlier, however, in that I've not found many DE blades I don't like, i.e., Voskhods and Merkurs. I haven't tried them all, but I enjoy the Med Preps, Astra SPs, Polsilver Iridiums, Gillette Blacks, Gillette Yellows, GSBs, Feathers, Kais, Nacets, and many others.

I just traded a 100 box of them that still held approx. 90 for some other items. It is a superb blade, but more razor specific than modern Gillette blades IMO. At least for me face. YMMV.
The good people of this world are very far from being satisfied with each other and my arms are the best peacemakers.

Still working on my box of 250 - special deal before at Connaught's. For me, seem to work in my razors except the really mild ones (Kai is my choice in those razors). I easily get 5 shaves from each blade and do not recall a poor quality "bin after 1st or 2nd shave." My blade experience is somewhat limited as 5 pack samples with razor purchase is my common method to diversify.

When I use DE they are among my fav's. But I don't use DE much anymore.

Never used a med prep but do use the lab blues. Personna is my wife's favorite.

I haven't used one in a while but always got very nice shaves from them.

I used them for a few weeks this year when I ran out of Kai's. Not as sharp or smooth.

I did buy a box of them from a fellow shaver and I suspect they didn't make the quality cut. They were horrible and I was not going to sell them to anyone else. Typically Med Preps are really good blades.

Excellent blades. There was a time they were among my short list of favorites, and still would be, except now I use the General SE razor. Recently sold off most my DE blades.
Best Regards,
