I bought a similar model and was very disappointed with it. I was able to return it at the store with no problems and even got my shipping reversed. So I figured I'll try this one. The UV light really seemed interesting. The shipping was a lil slow. When I got the product I could see that this model was built much better. I charged it for 24 hours and tried it out. I was shocked on how powerful this brush really is. There are three settings. High Low and massage. When I first started using the brush I kept it on low, however, I am able to use the high function now. It divides up brushing time in 4 sections, with a slight pause. I really like this, that way you know that every part of your mouth is getting a good cleaning. Since the bathroom is the dirtiest places in a house, I love the fact that I could put the brush head in a container and also use the UV light to clean it. Even if the light doesn't "truly" clean, it's a good peace of mind.
Get this product!
most similar toothbrushes cost [$]or more. This one comes with 12 brush heads! Brush heads are the main expense with a sonic toothbrush. Had the old Sonicare for years but the brush heads were [$]for 2pk. on sale. Anyway, this one is lighter weight too. Love the sanitizer. It arrived quickly and I got free shipping and 5 percent off with my target card.
This is the best toothbrush I have used in many a years. The cost is excellent, considering there are 3 years of extra brush heads included. I have oral problems and can see a difference in my oral health already. Glad I bought it.
Awesome! I've been looking at these for a few months. This is by far the most cost effective as it includes the brush head replacements. I love the way it cleans my teeth and I love the timer!
I purchased this brush mainly because Pursonic's web site says "American owned and operated"!!!
Upon arrival, I plugged it in charge it for 24 hours, initially (using the little user's guide recommendation).
Charging went fine, and the blue charging light turned ON immediately.
After 24 hours, I tried to run it, but it would not run at all. Dead .. no movement whatsoever.
I put it back on the charger for another night, and tried again.
Exact same thing. No movement.
[...] The brush is a very good deal, especially it comes with 12 brushing heads, but only if it worked!
This is an excellent way, Pursonic, to go out of business. [...]
I purchased this produce a few months ago and began to notice mold forming in the base where the toothbrush sits and on the bottom of the toothbrush as well. I also noticed it under the brushhead when you remove it. I was appauled that I was brushing my teeth with this. I understand that the toothbrush does get wet, but there should be something from stopping the mold from growing under the brushhead that is directly in your mouth. I contacted the company regarding this and I was told that there is nothing they can do because the toothbrush should be cleaned after each use. This means that everytime I use the toothbrush I have to remove the brushhead and clean it. I know I do not have time for that and I believe most people do not. Now I am stuck with the item and I have thrown out the money. I would not waste your money and purchase a different item.
As the previous comment said, it does not work. I let it charge for a full day, says to charge for at least 16 hours, and it still doesn't work. You have to tap the head to make it move, and then it barely is able to move. Luckily I was able to return this with no problem.
