Bought to replace a Sonicare
Reviewed in the United States on September 15, 2019
9/28/2019 update: the seller contacted me and kindly offered me a refund. I still stand by what I wrote below but am bumping my review to 3 stars to recognize the customer service.
As stated at the end of my original revise, this might be a good entry level brush for people who have never used an electric toothbrush before.
I have been using Sonicare for 10+ years. I really like them but unfortunately, my third one just stopped functioning and they are quite expensive. Because of the prohibitive price and unreliability of the Sonicare, I decided to look at alternatives.
I really wanted to like this toothbrush because it is lighter, cheaper, and can be charged with any USB charger but unfortunately, a toothbrush should first and foremost clean your teeth and this is where this toothbrush truly fell through.
It is simply not powerful enough and does a poor job when compared with the Sonicare. I would compare the cleanliness with the one achieved with a manual toothbrush and I can understand why people who have been using a manual toothbrush before are happy with this product.
However, if you have been using a superior product before, don’t waste your money on this. Bite the bullet and replace your broken Sonicare with a new one.
On a side note, this toothbrush emits an annoyingly loud high frequency buzzing.
