Summary: This is a really nice "Water Pick". It's totally self contained, compact, provides sufficient power, runs quietly and removes food particles that the tooth brush misses. It's easy to use, easy and quick to fill, and works very well for a battery power product. I have had and used a counter top Water pick, but never really like it. This Panasonic device I like a lot better, and it costs a lot less.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, quiet in operation, compact size
Summary: DOES THE JOB, BUT AFTER FILLING WITH WATER THE FIRST FEW TIMES, I HAD WATER EVERYWHERE. ALMOST NEEDS TO BE HELD ON IT'S SIDE TO KEEP ALL THE WATER FROM RUNNING OUT THE BOTTOM. TOO BIG TO CARRY ON A TRIP, UNLESS GOING BY AUTO, WHERE YOUR WEIGHT IS NOT RESTRICTED LIKE IT IS WHEN FLYING.
Summary: It is compact and easily packed. It has good pressure and 2-speeds. I've tried many and this is the best one yet. The reservoir is big enough to complete the job with one filling. Highly recommended.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: I especially like having this around if I have eaten recently before brushing my teeth. It really blasts away any left over bits, preventing that uncomfortable minty/food mash up that can occur.
Summary: I love Panasonic products, always have. If this unit was only used a few days at a time, like for a vacation, it would be fine. If you need it for everyday use buy an electric powered machine.
Pros: Works great for a week, every time fresh batteries are put in.
Cons: Worked great first week...has steadily gone down since. Battery power really doesn't last very long. I believe it would be much more cost effective to buy an electric model.
Summary: One must remember what this is... Its not a replacement for a bathroom counter-top model, it is a portable/travel 0ral irrigator and thus it should be expected there will be a balance between amount of water storage in the handle and bulkiness of the device... a trade-off between pressure and battery life.
Pros: No coil tubes attached, its all one piece and not tethered to a storage tank. It accepts re-chargeables and has good pressure until the batteries begin to sag (in about 3 weeks or so). Has a small 'footprint' on the counter top. Can be disassembled enough for cleaning. The price... its ridiculously cheap!!!
Cons: Because I realize its a portable/travel irrigator, I really can't find any issues that weren't expected.
