Nice for the price -- Updated: Still going strong after 4 yearsJun 25, 2008
By Josh Newman
I bought this kit to replace a Wahl "Designer" which developed a problem after about 10 years of home haircutting and would have cost more to fix than this kit cost as a replacement.
The clipper is quiet and works well. It gives the impression of a lot of power in reserve, and doesn't heat up in the hand. I was pleasantly surprised by the left and right angled guide combs used for the ears, which are included in the kit. They made that part of the haircut really easy. After years of cutting my hair with only the straight guide combs that came with my old clippers, I didn't think I would use them, but I tried them once and I'm very happy I did. They're great, and if you bought them separately, they would go for about half the price of the kit, making the kit a bargain.
The clipper itself is intended for home use and feels like it, unlike my old one, which felt a bit more heavy-duty. But this one does as good a job of cutting my hair, and costs about half as much. If it lasts half as long as the old ones did, I'll be more than satisfied.
Editing to update after a little over four years (probably about 40 haircuts, although I haven't kept an actual count): The clipper is still going strong, without any problem.

Hefty, powerful motorMar 17, 2010
By Mark in Tempe
I bought this today after reading reviews that it has a powerful motor. I usually get a #2 on the side, and #5 on top. I haven't had a haircut in 4 months, so my hair was a long and thick. This clipper cut right through it, no problems. Only bogged down twice.
This is the first time I cut my own hair. It turned out as good as the barber. This comes with good instructions, and links to Wahl's website with videos showing how to give different haircuts. It says to start with a thick guide. But, since I knew I always get #2 and #5, I did that, using #3 & 4 to blend the side and top. Turned out fine.
I usually pay $15 (including tip), but save money by delaying haircuts for 3-4. If this thing lasts 2-3 years, I'm going to save $120-$180. Plus, I'll cut my hair more often.
For the price, I'm impressed with the quality of the clipper. It's heavy and the motor feels powerful. The plastic case leaves a little to be desired. Everything's loose in it. And, I worry the plastic guides won't last long. But, for $20, it almost paid for itself with the first cut.
I'm usually leery of cheap products. I was going to spend $120-$150 for a professional-grade Oster Classic 76. But, since I've never cut my own hair before, I was worried about making that kind of investment. Based on the positive reviews, I gambled on this Wahl. I'm glad I did. The quality is definitely worth more than the $20 price. And, the instructional materials were valuable for a first-timer like me.
I was thinking when this breaks (after the experience I would have obtained at a low price) I might invest in a professional clipper. But, I don't know. If it lasts 2-3 years it's probably a better value to pay $20 for that length of use compared to a more expensive pro model requiring blade sharpening, replaced motor brushes, etc.

Surprisingly well madeOct 22, 2011
By Robert Snodgrass
I expected this trimmer to be a low quality option for quick haircuts. I've purchased various hair trimmers previously from different manufacturers, and they are always light plastic cheap devices that break within a few months, even under moderate use. Puny. Puny! It's like they weren't designed to handle a man's glorious mane.
But this trimmer, THIS trimmer, however, is sturdy and solid, with a heavy metal casing that really gives it some weight. I feel like I could crack open walnuts with it, or defend the realm from invading armies. When you look at the packaging, you have an expectation of a glorified beard trimmer in a festive mood. That is to say, it's bright and colorful and curvy, which suggests it's going to be underpowered or fragile. But no - this thing has gravitas, and you know it from the moment you pick it up, and then proceed to hammer in nails through hardened steel.
I turned it on and was pleased with the roaring, powerful warcry it emitted. Yes, it is a little on the loud side, but lots of awesome things are. Like television, and LIONS. Lions are awesome. What do you people have against lions? Nothing, that's what.
I then ran it through the brutal obstacle course of my head, throwing endless armies of brambled follicles, the kind with mean streaks and meaner grins, who drink straight from the milk jug and don't wash their hands enough, and have tattoos with the names of all their enemies and ex-lovers. Hair with tattoos, you heard it here first. The trimmer took one look and mowed them down with relaxed fury, literally cutting them down to size (eight available with this set, create your own style today!) in crisp, uniform lengths. I was so impressed that I went out and trimmed the lawn and some tree branches (which work best with the 3/4" attachment). Note: Product not authorized for landscaping work, I playfully made that up. Doublenote: OR WAS I? Because you certainly wouldn't know once you fire this baby up and watch it bring on the POWER.
I would caution using this without an attachment/guard on it, as you are liable to cut yourself if you press it directly. So do use some caution. If you're a wimp, that is. Not me though, but I feel the need to warn all the other wimps out there. You wimps, you.
You can also pair this up with different attachments from Wahl, including Wahl #12 clipper guide comb, 1&1/2. for longer style cuts. They snap right on without issue, useful for those wanting heftier styles. This does lend some useful versatility to the product, which I appreciate. You will appreciate it too.
The case gets the job done, but it does lack any kind of internal organization - there's nothing to slot the attachments into, for example. Things will jumble around and get disorganized, but this is a minor complaint. There is enough room for another few attachments in addition to the included stock, as it is roomy enough to accommodate a few added accessories.
The cord could probably bit a tiny bit longer. Most things are better longer. Except for hair, which is why you are buying this thing in the first place.
In short: highly recommended. Manly recommended. Grab you one and unleash the wonderful mightiness. Hold it high above your newly clean-cut head and watch lighting bolts dance behind you as you part the heavens in your magnificence.

A Product that works well and costs littleMar 30, 2007
By Braden Piper
I am a college student, and I bought these hair clippers so I wouldn't have to mess with finding a barber who I can trust to cut my own hair. I had no experience whatsoever with cutting hair, and I've found that it is really easy with these clippers. They come with a number of different attachments that makes the very easy to use without worrying about completely ruining my hair. They also have instructions which aid in learning how to cut, and a nice plastic cape so you don't get hair all over yourself.
Everything works properly, and it works well. Best of all, it is cheaper than most comperable products out there.
I highly recommend this.

INITIAL MPRESSIONSSep 02, 2012
My Wahl clipper was delivered in three days on a free shipping order.My experiences have always been very satisfactory with Amazon.
This review is the perception of a man in his mid-eighties, limited with the effects of a stroke with tremors and poor peripheral and depth perception vision. Because of these challenges, I purchased this product with trepidation, especially after reading the one and two star ratings. However after weighing against the five star ratings, I concluded that many of the poor ratings appear to be over exaggerated.My initial experience is positive and perhaps I should have entitled this review "IF I CAN DO IT, YOU CAN DO IT BETTER!"
Step one: To avoid the clutter of attachments, I removed the guide combs I will not be using and left only those I expect to use which will probably be reduced further. I then oiled the blade before using, despite the manufacturer's claim of having done so, as the kit may have been in stock for a lengthy period which might have caused drying. Unfortunately, because of my tremors I over-oiled and hope this may not harm the motor.I compared the oil with mineral oil which I use on my electric shaver and find no difference plus I have read several reviews where the same conclusion was reached with no negative effect.
Step two: The noise level doesn't exceed the clippers used by most barbers and is not in the least bit annoying. The weight is heavier than I would like but should not be a problem for most users (perhaps I should have chosen the "Peanut" model, but it is manageable.) I felt anxious as I started cutting, especially without the benefit of a rear view mirror and felt that perhaps I made a mistake in trying to cut my own hair, but when I was through and asked for my wife's opinion, she stated the result was better than the usual cuts I get from barbers.
I feel grateful for my success and sure that future cuts will be done in half the time with even better results. I highly recommend this hair clipper, based on price and results. It deserves 5 stars but I rated it 4 solely for its weight and my lack of dexterity. After a few more cuts, I will update my experience.
I Totally forgot to update sooner, but was reminded by a commenter.Unfortunately. old age and memory are not very compatible.
It is almost a year since my purchase of this product and I remain very satisfied with my choice. I do not labor long in the trimming process, but work within the limited dexterity and visual challenges mentioned in my initial review. I use a #2 comb on my nape and the surrounding areas of my ears, then change to a #3 comb to taper below the top of my scalp which is very sparse and kept in a oomb-over fashion. This process takes less than five minutes and results in a neat trim appearance.
Admittedly,if I was younger and going to business and socializing, I would take more time and care, or ask for my wife's assistance.I'm just glad that I didn't heed the one star reviewers. This trimmer is powerful and solidly built and does not sound loud at all. The combs are sturdy. All in all, it is an excellent choice at a bargain price.
