Great haircut and also can trim beards. Shapes and cuts hair in minutes.
And the battery charge lasts months.
A wonderful product worth twice the price!
At any rate, it DID save me from paying for two $15 haircuts, so it (barely) paid for itself. I'm hoping that maybe I just got a bad one, or it's an easy fix, but so far I haven't been able to get any help from WAHL (the manufacturer) or their website. The site is basically just an online brochure, and the phone number I found is just an automated system that quickly turns into a maze of options.
If the problems I'm seeing aren't typical, then I would recommend this clipper kit. Otherwise, don't bother. Unfortunately, at the moment, I can't tell which it is...
Also, AN IMPORTANT NOTE: Even the longest guide that comes with this set is pretty darn short. If you wear your hair in any style longer than a buzz-cut or really close-trimmed business cut, this won't work for you without much longer guides, and the biggest one that WAHL sells on their site is a #12 (1.5 inch cut).
Seeing I received this as a birthday gift in the first part of December and the malfunction did not occur until mid-February the Amazon 30 day return policy had expired. On a positive note, it still seems to work with just one clipper head position. Also, there are lots of videos on-line with how-to-do tutorials for this set of clippers. It would be a go idea to try the clippers several times in all positions as soon as you receive them.
Edit to review and change. Wahl has excellent customer service. I am changing this review from two to 5 stars. They replaced the clipper without any issues. I simply sent them my broken one, and they replace it for free with a whole new clipper!!
Edit again..the new clipper - same model, broke after 6 months this time...
Edit - Wahl is a great company. they replaced it once again. my family and i will only ever buy Wahl.

You would think with a name like Wahl it would be backed with quality a bit higher than you would find at Walmart.
