I previously had a braun/oral B but after about 5yrs use the battery life per charge was becoming bad. I received this new toothbrush for Xmas and I must say its excellent. My teeth feel cleaner than the previous brush and I can feel its much more powerful. The pressure indicator is a very useful feature as before I was brushing far too hard. I now have very clean teeth and no gum bleeding. One other great thing is that on other brushes they have rubber on the base which can end up getting mouldy. On this brush its just plastic and so will stay cleaner and more hygenic.
