I'm really glad I opted for this model with the Smart Guide. It's an excellent feature, and really convenient, as it reminds you to spend at least 30 seconds in each of the four quadrants in your mouth. It's useful so that you don't cut corners.

Aside from the Smart Guide, this is overall a really powerful electric toothbrush, fun to use, really, really makes your teeth feel clean afterwards, and the battery lasts a really long time.

For regular maintenance, every six months I let the battery drain to empty, in order to maximize battery life. I set a notification in my calendar application to repeat every six months. Once a month I have a reminder as well to change the toothbrush head, and these are very affordable:

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, effective and pleasant to use, November 7, 2009

I can't think of anything negative to say about this product. I did a lot of research on Oral-B's products as compared to Sonicare before buying this unit, and I'm happy as heck with the choice I made. It's easy to use, easy to keep clean, very well constructed and is a very effective oral hygiene tool. Also, since my bathroom is small, I really appreciate the small footprint of the recharging base.

When I was making the decision to buy this model, I went back and forth as to whether to go with the SmartSeries 5000 with its separate "Smart Guide," (as opposed to the only slightly-cheaper 4000) but I'm glad I opted to pay the extra money for this additional gizmo. Aside from the fact that it doubles as an unobtrusive bathroom clock, I actually find that the visual guidance on brushing times, brushing mode, and brushing pressure help me to use this product to its full potential. Also, in case you were wondering, the cheaper AA-powered brushes you can get for a... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best as it can get, at least for now, November 27, 2013

I do a lot of research before buying electronics. I like having the best electric shaver and best electric toothbrush that is out at the moment. As for electric shaver i am very happy with BRAUN series 7 and this is also made by BRAUN. I actually did not know that when i purchased this. To be fair to other brands, i have tried Philips Sonicare HX9110/02 before purchasing this. Based on the review the new sonicare diamon clean is not that great either.
My research for the perfect toothbrush was done online and i have gotten suggestions from two dentists.

The sonicare is a very good toothbrush, this is just a little better. So if you already have the sonicare, then there is no reason to upgrade unless you want something a little better. But if you are a new buyer, then i would suggest to get this, not to mention it is cheaper and the brush heads costs less.

I enjoyed the sonicare but the oral b proves better results. The power of both brush is similar and the... Read more
