Summary: Best deal out there. Purchased 3000 model for $25 after rebate. It does everything higher-end models do without the bells and whistles. Replaced an older oral-b professional after many years. The power button was moved up on the newer model which is just a matter of getting use to, but this is better because I use to accidendentally turn it off when resting my thumb on the older model. The timer for brushing the 4 quadrants is nice too. I highly recommend this model.
Summary: Red light flashes if you apply too much pressure. Approximately every 30 seconds, the handle briefly pauses (like it is shifting gears) to give you a notice to move to another area of your teeth. It does this 3 times after you begin. You start let's say by brushing your top front teeth, then 30 seconds it pauses to let you know it is time to do your bottom front. It does this 2 more times to give you an approximate time-frame for the backs of your teeth also.
Summary: Replaced a prior Oral B electronic toothbrush. This 1 has more revolutions per second than cheaper versions, plus the every 30 second & 2 minute pulse alerts. Took almost a full day to initially charge & it doesn't fit on my old charger stand (which I was going to use when travelling). But other than that, its great & w/ the 2 rebates, is a great value.
Summary: What a great toothbrush! My old Oral-B electric toothbrush of 10+ years finally gave up. This Professional Care 3000 surpassed my expectations as a replacement--more rapid cycles, more streamline handle and a means of alerting you when the battery runs low. Instead of revving at the 2-minute mark (i.e., how long you should brush your teeth) it revs every 30 seconds so you know how much time to spend on each section of the (left/right, inside/outside, upper/lower).
Summary: Oral-B Professional Care 3000 Electric Toothbrush works great. I tested over the last few days and I have been very happy with the toothbrushes performance. The toothbrush was not too strong or abrasive. This toothbrush comes with 3 cleaning modes: daily clean, sensitive and whitening and a Pressure indicator lights up when you're brushing too hard. I am happy with this product and would recommend it to others. Thank you for reading my review.
Summary: I've been very happy with this toothbrush thus far. I was experiencing pain with my impacted wisdom teeth since food often got stuck in between my wisdom teeth and my gums, causing painful red swelling and even infection a couple of times. (I hope to get my wisdom teeth pulled this summer.) The small toothbrush head helps me reach all crevices of my mouth so I have not had any problems with food getting stuck and causing me pain!
