Anything that takes the A5 *can* do the job but it's no match for big clippers. Lister Stars are my favorite, though outside your price range. You can find the Oster or Andis A5 type on eBay for $100ish.
My (~8yr old) wahl stable pros do a decent job of smaller clips, I have to stop to let them cool as they will heat up after a while. They were around $80 when I bought them, IIRC.
They *clip* fine for a bigger job, but I just can't do it all at once as they get too hot. I'm going to be clipping more now, so I am upgrading my clippers &I using these for trimming/backup.
