This is an excellent entry level electric toothbrush from Braun. I've been using one of their previous models (the Vitality) for the last few years, and this model quite simply blows it out of the water.
The toothbrush comes as three separate components; the brush heads, the charger unit, and the handle/motor unit.
The brush comes with two standard Oral-B toothbrush heads in the box - while these don't do floss action, or whitening, or any more advanced cleaning procedures, they're perfectly adequate for day-to-day brushing. Some quick experimentation showed that brush heads that fit the Vitality also fit this Professional Care model, and from this I infer that all the standard Oral-B brush head types will fit (or say otherwise on the box).
Unfortunately, whilst the brush heads benefit from standardisation, the power charger does not; whilst it looks similar to the Vitality charger, it is thinner, and the Professional Care motor unit will not fit on a Vitality charger; this isn't an issue if you only charge one toothbrush, or have two Professional Care brushes, but is slightly annoying to have to plug and unplug two different chargers for brushes made by the same manufacturer. The charger itself is a small white plastic unit, with a two pin plug attached - you may need an adapter to plug it into your wall at home. The base seems small, but does not appear to be unstable.
The brush handle/motor unit is white and blue, and comes with two useful features not found on my earlier model - a timer, and a charge indicator light. The timer causes the brush head to vibrate at 30 second intervals during use, letting the user know when they've reached the `recommended' time spent brushing a `quadrant' of their mouth. This can be quite disorienting at first, as it feels as if the brush charge is giving out. Once you get used to it, it can be quite useful - presuming you want to brush your teeth in quadrants! The timer also has a longer `stutter' at the conclusion of two minutes, to let the user know that they've reached the end of recommended brushing time.
The charge indicator is a straightforward green light, which lights up when the unit is placed on the charger. Flashing green means that it is charging, and steady green means that it is fully charged. This can be quite useful if you're in a hurry and want to know if the brush is charged or not. It's also useful for letting you know when the battery is running low, always a problem on older electric toothbrush models.
The last feature is noticeable in brushing, which is the pressure sensor. This pauses the brush head pulse action (but not the spin) when the user pushes down too hard. This is sometimes difficult to feel, and perhaps a little too subtle, but the attempt to warn a user when they are pushing down too hard is welcome, even if it is of doubtful effectiveness.
The unit is slim and easy to pick up and use (at least for the recommended 2 minutes!). The motor is reasonably powerful, and certainly beats my old Vitality in cleaning power, as well as a comparative test with a manual brush.
In conclusion, some useful features and good cleaning power make this a solid entry level electric toothbrush.
