    Not sure what your budget is but I would get these:

    I have these and they are great! Not sure what the square bodied Andis are like.

      I really like the first pair you have on there, the square Andis 2 speed. I have a pair of those and they have been my go-to back up pair for 8 years. I've never had a problem with them and they actually work better then all the other Andis I own. The only reason I don't use them on a regular basis is because they are kind of heavy to me. My andis power groom are lighter, but I think the older andis 2 speed cuts better and faster than my Power groom. My power groom started out great but I've had it for about 6mo and it's starting to poop out on me.

        I love my Andis and used the black 2 speed clippers for the past 11 years, well, for most of the time. they all died about 6-8 months ago, but they lasted a good long time! I have the Conair Dynagroom and really like those. I've never tried the one you have listed, but I was sp surprised with the dynagroom. It is so similar to my Andis. They were a gift and I used them until I wore out the blade drive. Course, that happens with just about every clipper, but I had trouble finding the part so I just went back to using my Wahl switchblades and then someone was kind enough to buy me a new pair of the Andis super 2 speeds. I prefer the square body clippers myself and prefer the older style to any of their newer ones I've tried, but I really want their 5 speed eventually.

          Andis always. The 2 speeds are nice, I have a ten year old pair as a back up and they are going strong. The Conair I have held are quite heavy.

            Thank you all so far! Pardon my stupidity, but what is the big difference between 1 and 2-speed? I've never had 2-speed and honestly dont know. And has anyone had good luck with conair other than "mylady"? Just a bit cautious of a lesser known brand. Thanks!

                2 speeds are nice to have, most of the time it can go through a matted coat easier/faster. Haven't used the conair, sorry!

                  Andis 2 speed all the way. They have a modest stroke-per-minute that will allow long life, the are totally low maintenance and quiet. That is what I love, they dont spook the animals with all that buzzing. good price too! I have had mine since 04 and they are still in great condition!

                      Tell us how you really feel.

                        After going through your list of clipper choices ,I have to be perfectly honest I would not waste my money on any of them. I have been using andis clippers for several years now and not all have been worth buying. the one I most recently purchased is http://www.petedge.com/product/Groom.../397/51369.uts
                        I have so far been very pleased with them. for the lower priced versions you will get what you pay for and unfortunately you'll end up purchasing the higher priced clippers sooner than you think.

                          Well, I've had these for about 7-8 years now, obviously not the same model but I show dairy cattle and like to drop them! Sometimes the cord touches or gets wrapped around their feet or legs and they kick and pull it out of my hands. They're not the most powerful, but last I think.

                          Otherwise, I have the Andis 2-speed and haven't had any problems except for the normal changing the little plastic drive thing. My cattle clippers are also Andis and I love them to death. I don't think I would buy anything but Andis.

                            These are the clippers that we mostly use. I bought the Ultraedge which is the same thing as these but the housing is about 3/16 larger in diameter. This makes a big difference with small hands.

                              Don't know how I missed this before. Personally I wouldn't buy or recommend anything made by Andis. For the price range you're looking at, get a Wahl KM2. Wahl is the only clipper I'll use. Oster's clippers are too heavy and run hot, Andis kill my hand and arm. Wahl has all the power you need without the weight, heat, and vibration.
