I purchased this during a great sale and have been happy with how it cleans my teeth, but I do have to admit that if it were not for the sale, I'd probably stick to using a traditional toothbrush. I can't really see a noticeable difference. While the time warning is a nice feature, I usually brush my teeth for longer than the recommended time. Also, for those wondering if they should purchase a higher-end model for significantly more money, you really should reconsider. This toothbrush does everything you'd want out of your power toothbrush. All the other features are gimmicks and are not worth the steep premium. I also love the wireless charging base. You just put the brush on the base and it charges, quick and easy!
My only issue so far has been rust forming on the metal tip where the brush head is inserted onto the handle. I have messaged Oral B and they have been good about sending me a box to send it in for warranty inspection. I will update my review accordingly depending on that service. I do have to say that I am surprised that rust formed within a week of usage, especially since I dry both the brush head and the handle after every use.
