4.0 out of 5 stars Great electric toothbrush, 12 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Braun Oral-B TriZone 3000 Three-Mode Rechargeable Toothbrush (Packaging Varies) (Personal Care)
I have been using my Oral B trizone toothbrush for about two weeks now and here are my first impressions.
Pros:
Slim design that fits easily in your hand
Your teeth feel really clean
Warning light if your press too hard while brushing
Timer to indicate when you should have cleaned each zone of your teeth
Easy to transport
Replacement heads cheaper than Phillips
Good battery life - I got 7 days on my first full charge and I religiously brush my teeth twice a day and usually for longer than just the 2 minutes

Cons:
The toothbrush head feels large in your mouth (I have used a Phillips Sonicare for the last 4 years and the head and stem of that toothbrush is slimmer)
Location of the off switch is hard to locate while brushing
Variable speeds (pointless) the only speed that would really clean your teeth is the fastest one
Having to go through the other speeds to turn it off

The reason I switched to Oral B is that I have found the reliability of the Sonicare to be poor and the replacement heads are very expensive. The battery on my sonicare started to go after just over a year (it's never a good sign when you can find instructions on I fix it.com to replace the battery yourself)
My wife has had an Oral B toothbrush for longer than I have had my old sonicare and it is still growing strong
I really don't notice any difference in how clean my teeth feel between the sonic are and the Oral B
