    I'm looking to buy a good hair buzzer so I can give myself the crew cut. I have had a couple of the cheap sets they sell at target for about $10, but they don't last long before the clips start to be too loose on the buzzer and make it hard to use.

    I tried to buy a more expensive better one, and thought this one from Remington sounded good: http://www.remington-store.com/product_detail.asp?CAT=grooming&SKW=remcutk&T1=REM+SC-100RC

    It is supposed to cut hair in less time, but when I tried to use it got clogged up immediately and I had to take it apart. It would have probably taken me two hours to shave my head since it gets clogged so quickly, so I sent it back.

    Does anyone know a good one I can get for up to $75? Battery charged and cordless would be nice, but not necessary.

    Ask a barber or go to a beauty supply store. Mine from Target works fine for 10 years now, just do the upkeep with oil and screwdriver.

    the key is to oil after or before every use. i've had a rechargeable conair one for a number of years. works great and paid about $30.

    I use a cheap Wahl cutter. Cost me $30 and I used it probably 10 times now, save me tons of money.
