These are EXTREMELY good trimmers! This other guys review is bad. As a barber I know clippers. He was saying that they don't get close enough because of the motor? The motor has nothing to do with how close the blades cut! Oster does not send the clipper blades pre-adjusted like other companies. So, if the blade isn't cutting close enough, adjust the blade closer dummy! Or shave with a razor. But they are a great trimmers. Well worth the money. I've been using mine for about 2 years and they are great. Oster is a great company and they make awesome products.
