Bottom line

The Oster Fast Feed hair clipper offers a great blend of power, usability and value. It's light and maneuverable enough to cut your own hair at home, but still powerful enough to mow through thick hair, but not so powerful that it'll get away from you. The Fast Feed's pivot motor operates quietly, and its adjustable blades and four comb guards can handle short- to medium-length hair.

Performance

Versatile and powerful. The Oster Fast Feed's pivot motor can mow through any type of hair, including thick hair, without a problem. Most users say it's speedy, quiet and easy to handle, especially for doing fades: "Very quiet and cuts precisely. Also very cool after long use," writes one Amazon.com user.

The Fast Feed's adjustable blade and four included combs can handle short- to medium-length hair, although some users say the guards are loose. That's easily fixed by purchasing a set of Oster's universal guards (Est. $25 for 10), which also gives you the option of working with longer hair.

Ease of use

Just one tiny flaw. The Oster Fast Feed's blades adjust from 1/50 inch to 3/32 inch, and it comes with four comb guards ranging from 1/8 inch to 1/2 inch. We found some complaints that the Oster Fast Feed's blade-adjust lever is made of flimsy plastic and can break, but otherwise users say this clipper feels sturdy in their hands -- and Oster's reputation for durability is unparalleled. Considering the amount of power it produces, the Oster Fast Feed is light, easy to maneuver and requires very little maintenance beyond periodically oiling the blades.
