2.0 out of 5 stars Great toothbrush, but way overdone on useless features, December 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Oral-B Healthy Clean Electric Toothbrush (Health and Beauty)
I bought two of these toothbrushes, one for me and one for my wife. The toothbrushes themselves are phenomenal!! The best toothbrushes we have ever used. However, the automatic cutoff for brushing too hard is just about the most irritating feature I have ever seen for any product I have ever used ever. It almost ruins everything good about this toothbrush. The problem is the over brushing is not determined correctly. It is highly dependent on angle and such of the brush and where or how this tooth brush determines the over brushing is not right. The pressure can be greater with no detection, or much less than too much and the tooth brush shuts down. It just doesn't do it right. And even if I over brush or brush too hard or whatever, I don't ever want a toothbrush that cuts off on its own again. I am telling you, it is like the most irritating thing I have ever seen in a product, and my wife agrees.

The little digital display thing that comes with the toothbrush I... Read more

I read through many of the low reviews on this and I just don't agree with any of them.
As far as complaints of the batteries not lasting long:

I have proof that the way one cares for their electric toothbrush battery will determine how long the battery will live.
Two exact toothbrushes,...Two examples:
Years ago I bought myself an Oral-B Triumph. I only put my toothbrush on the charger when it needed a charge, and I only left it on the charger until it was fully charged. The charger then went into the drawer. When the battery got really low, I put it back on the charger and removed from charger after it was fully charged. About once a month, I let the brush run completely out of batteries while running, and then I recharged it in full, then removed from charger.
That toothbrush lasted for years and years and I just now replaced it with the 5000. I am treating the 5000 exactly the same.

After having bought the Triumph for myself,... Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Planned Obsolescence, December 2, 2016

This review is from: Oral-B Healthy Clean Electric Toothbrush (Health and Beauty)
I can't stand planned obsolescence. Unlike other toothbrushes they sell, after 3 years this one drains the battery overnight if you forget to put it in the charger. The battery is fine. If I put it in the charger, I can use it for about 10 minutes with plenty of oomf left to go.

This makes it useless for trips. Since when you get there your toothbrush is dead. And when you forget to put in the charger it'll be dead. Why does this happen? Perhaps it is the wifi, but when the toothbrush is "off" I don't see it doing anything - off should mean off. This is clearly "poor design" from my perspective and "Planned Obsolescence" from theirs. Don't get me wrong I love this toothbrush. I think the wifi is really cool in that it provides useful feedback. Having a clock in my bathroom is useful. But I am insulted that I need to spend another $100+ because they figured out how to get me replace it after 3 years. BTW when it fails I use my old electric toothbrush... Read more
