Buy the Model that Best Suits Your Needs,
This review is from: Oral-B Pro 3000 CrossAction Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Only Buy the Features You Need. I am a huge fan of Braun Oral-B toothbrushes. My mouth always feels beautifully clean when I've used one. It is, however, very easy think that going for the top of the range is the best thing to do only to find that, in daily use, you only use the basic features and could have paid very much less.
The latest range of these brushes has tweaked the basic design a little and, as you go up the range, some new features have been added. Be careful not to waste money by going for the the top range unless you are going to use the additional features.
I do not see myself using sensitive mode and gum massage very much. Nor do I need the flashing red light to warn me I'm brushing too hard. This might be useful if you've never used one of these brushes before or if you are letting children use this unit. Having a couple of brush heads is an advance on only one but these can purchased from Amazon fairly cheaply. Being able to store a couple of spare heads on and adaptor that the charge unit can be placed in is good but whether or not this will be a really useful feature depends on how much shelf space you have in your bathroom.
The handle is pretty much the same in design as the others in the range. It's comfortable to hold and is easy to use. What I don't like is the change in the on/off switch. I do not find this new design as easy to switch off as earlier models, If I press the button too hard, it goes off and comes immediately back on again. It's been a couple of weeks plus now and I still haven't found the knack. This is the first time I've encountered this issue with Braun Oral B units. This is the reason for a four star rather than a five star rating.
If were going to buy a Braun Oral B again, I would check the features that each unit possesses and then pick the unit that had those I needed. Would I buy another? Of course. I love them.
