got one of these when argos had them 'half off' at £19.99!!! Unfortunately it went back when it broke after 2 mins of use, it looks like metal in the pic but its actually plastic and feels quite cheap!

Sorry. Didn't vote as the breakage maybe a QC issue.

Similarly crap :-(

Go for the Philips rotating head one, miles better than anything I've tried in every respect and battery lasts for ages :)

Mains?

Decided to give it a go despite warning by nihcaj. Exactly the same problem. The cheap plastic broke even before first use (while I was trying to fix the plastic thinggy to the actual clipper). My advice would be STAY AWAY from this product. Didn't vote last time but voting COLD now.

I am afraid the only option for reliable powerful hair cutting at best VALUE is the (proper) Professional range from WAHL. There are better, there are cheaper, there are some with more features. but for quality balanced against price you are looking at around the 40 quid mark for something like the WAHL Super Taper, depending on where you can find it at the best price at the time.

If you have different hair type or need to cut to a VERY close, closer than zero, then other models might be worth a look, but the Super Taper ones cover most eventualities, and are widely available.

I struggled for years with a few different cheap models, but finally had enough and did my homework on buying something better without spending a literal fortune - found it, following the advice of others, now I wish I had bought a pro range set of clippers YEARS ago!

Thanks! A lesson learnt the hard way. Thanks for suggesting. Just thought of warning others before they buy. +1

I wouldn't go back to steel blades after using ceramic - they are just so much better!

The Remington ones I had weren't, they were much poorer than a cheap Wahl clipper! Went back to the old ones, and it was about 4 years later that I replace that set!

Until you try the professional models of clippers, with the increased power, lower vibration and lack of overheating, you don't even realise that there is something much better, and you continue messing on, leaving uncut bits, dragging & pulling, and it taking ages to get a tidy comfortable result. (Especially when you do it yourself)

I was no different, I knew no better then either!.

It's like driving a car without power steering, you think that's how all cars are like to drive up and around tight multi storey car parks - when you drive something better, you would never rush to go back!
