Does an excellent job of all round cleaning.
on 27 October 2013
I've been using Oral-B - Professional Care - 600 Black Limited Edition electric toothbrush from Braun for approx. two weeks and found it functional, does the job, with no gimmicks. One power button, on/off, just one brushing mode and a simple timer that beeps every 30 seconds. Has a pressure sensor that alters the speed of the brush if you apply too much pressure, you should be able to hear the difference, there's nothing else to indicate it.
The brush head is round and the claim by Braun is; the round shape cups each tooth and the 3D oscillating/pulsating motion of the brush removes up to 100% more plaque than a manual toothbrush. Does it? My teeth and gum line feel very clean but I'm not a dentist and can't possibly see all of the plaque on, or around, my teeth. I'll have to take their word for the science but they do, rather generously, offer a 30 day challenge; satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. Quite an offer and appears to be genuine, no catches, you just pack the brush, plus all of the bits and bobs, inside the original box and return to Braun, address included, for a full refund.
The brush is rechargeable, comes complete with a charging station and has an indicator light, on the handle, to show full/low charge and recommended charging time, initially, is 24 hours.
Only has only one brush head but there's a free plastic travel case included with this model which is a handy bonus though, personally, I'd have preferred another brush head.
Braun offer a +1 year warranty which they increase to 3 years if you register the product online - read the small print. If you read through the user guide/instructions you'll notice they also offer a 2 year guarantee - I'm confused.
The 600 model is being advertised as Limited Edition only because the rubber grip on the handle is black. If you have a black and white bathroom and are desperate to co-ordinate then perhaps that's important but it's really only a gimmick to hook you in, make you take notice.
I'm more than half way through the 30 day challenge and can recommend by saying I won't be returning the brush.
