You're probably struggling to choose a clipper because the reviews are so mixed. That was my experience anyway. I bought the Wahl Super Taper II mostly because of the 5-star review from "inquisitivetoo". I couldn't be happier with this clipper so far. I've cut my son's hair once, and my hair twice. This clipper truly DOES cut hair like a knife through butter. Aside from the excellent blades, the overall design is impressive. This clipper is hefty, delivering a substantial hand-feel. The different-colored clip-on combs are easily selected by color, eliminating the need to read the print on each one. The only negative is the Taper II is not cordless. The attached cord is quite long however, allowing good mobility from your wall outlet to wherever you're cutting. I see this clipper offered through multiple vendors here, at a wide range of price points which is confusing. I can't see any difference between the plastic-sealed versions, and bought the one priced at $55.95 (as of this date) sold through HairProducts-com.

Update July 1, 2008 - I've now used this razor more than 50 times between myself and my son. It continues to work great. An excellent product.

Update April 7, 2009 - Love this razor. Still working great. You'll never need another one.

I have been "buzzing" hair for 15 years now and to date, these have been my absolute favorite hair clippers.

To date, I have owned 3 Wahls (this set included) and the last being a Remington (utter crap!)and while I have been satisfied with the previous Wahls...the Taper II's have been my absolute favorite.

Typically, when buzzing hair-you can hear the difference (sound) the cheaper trimmers produce when idle and in trimming. Not the case with these.

These trimmers glide right through hair effortlessly, no matter course or fine. I am truly a happy camper and after the agony my husband experienced with the previous Remington's...so is he!

Thank goodness for Wahl, I am never turning back.

Good luck.

I had bought a cheap clipper off of Amazon a while back and it is now in the garbage. It is worth spending the extra money for one like this. This thing is designed to work for years in a barbershop so it will work great in your home.

My wife cuts my hair and it is like putting a knife through warm butter. The blade is very sharp and cuts hair VERY fast with no pulling. No work at all! The attachements are all good quality and go on easy. This stays cool the whole time you use it which is very nice.

The only downside here is not about the product itself but it does not come with a case to store it in. I just keep mine in a box I had at home so it is not really a big deal.

So look at it this way, to get your hair cut you are going to pay at least $14 even at a cheap place. So all you have to do is use this thing 5 times and you are already have made your money back.

This is a great product. I have had it for seven months and have used it about 18 times and I recommend it over anything else.

UPDATE:
It has been almost 2 and 1/2 years since I purchased this and it still works like new. My wife cuts my hair every other week so it is used often. The blades are still sharp and I have never had to do any repair work on it. If this does ever break I will buy another one!

Stop. I already did the work for you- I would be insulted if you continued to browse. It is true, however, that I don't consider my time wasted. All the same, my experience with the Wahl Super Taper II was so positive that I am compelled to offer shopping assistance.

Difficult shopping is about conflict. Every product on the damn market creates conflict with all the others- even unrelated products. You will find yourself trying to save money on a DVD player so that you can buy that book or CD. The most popular conflict with the Wahl Super Taper II is likely with the cheaper packages. Are you the beginner? Do you want to save money? You don't need an expensive first time set of clippers, right? Plus, they come with all those extra accessories, right? Wrong. If it doesn't cut hair it doesn't cut hair. No price in the world can change that. The Super Taper II cuts hair. The motor is powerful and the blades are sharp. There is no lag when cutting through tough hair. You can trust me, I just got mine in the mail today and they took about 6 months of coarse, curly hair off my head- and I did it by myself for the first time ever. The results were perfect. The bottom line here is this: entry level clippers are less powerful and the accessories are cheap Chinese garbage. If you want them then you are better off buying these clippers and a pair of Japanese or Italian scissors seperately (this is the most you're going to need to buy since the package already comes with an excellent comb). Want a cape? Then take your shirt off. Got boobs? Save that old bed sheet, it will last longer and provide better coverage.
