3.0 out of 5 stars Don't see why it's so expensive compared to others, 27 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Oral-B Pro 4000 CrossAction Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
During the last few years, I owned several Oral-B toothbrushes. Most of them were less than half the price of this one and most of them did exactly the same job as this one to start with. However, after about a year of use, most of these brushes became less powerful and required more frequent charging. With this in mind, I'll reserve my judgment on the battery life of this toothbrush for now but what I can say is that if you take the brush heads off this brush and attach them to the cheaper models that have just been charged, you will get exactly the same results. So, I'd suggest that if you already own an Oral B electric toothbrush, you simply purchase more expensive, newer brush heads and use them with your brush instead of buying a new brush.

I see absolutely no other difference whatsoever.

The main difference between higher and lower priced models in this specific range is choice of features (more or less brushing modes, e.g. standard, sensitive, gum care etc...) and the accessory which fits over the charger - either none or the likes of what is provided with this model. The charger base is the same. As you say, the battery performance does decline over time, which is why people buy new models. Even new brush heads on an old unit won';t achieve the same results as a new unit.

I agree that due to the declining battery life new brush heads on an old unit won't achieve the same results. However, I am doubtful that fancy new brushes on a new but cheaper base unit won't either. My slightly older model didn't have quite the number of various brush heads but otherwise did all exactly the same things as this model but cost less than half the price.

The other point I intended to make was that the prices come down dramatically on these new products after a few months have passed.

The brush head idea isn't correct, There are circular ones which spin, static oblong ones and the ones I use are two piece with differing actions. In my view you need to use the right brush with the correct tooth brush or you are wasting your money.

There are several different brush heads, all of which are compatible with this range of brushes. I speak only of official branded products and accessories.

E.g. Braun Oral-B EB30-4 TriZone Replacement Rechargeable Toothbrush Heads - Pack of 4

Braun Oral-B EB25-4 Floss Action Replacement Rechargeable Toothbrush Heads - Pack of 4

Braun Oral-B EB18-4 3DWhite Replacement Rechargeable Toothbrush Heads - Pack of 4
