The brush itself works quite well and will clean your teeth nicely. The change of speed which reminds you to move on to the other side of your mouth is a good idea and the light which comes on to tell you that you are applying too much pressure is an excellent reminder for the over-zealous. So in general the product works but the charger is of very poor quality and they only last a few months. They are very expensive to replace (more than 50% of the cost of a new brush) and I am about to purchase my second replacement. So I definitely would not recommend this product because obviously Braun do not test their products properly. Made in Germany is supposed to be a sign of quality but sadly not in this case.
