We have had a Conair Vagabond for over 6 years and it's still working hard. My teens keep it in their bathroom and it's quite scraped up but still effective. I'm impressed with the sturdiness of this unit. While I don't recall the price, I know it wasn't a super pricey one which makes it more notable for its longevity. No fancy features on this one. I would buy another one for sure!
