I've used several Oral-B/Braun electric toothbrush models during the last six years. My personal six-year-old model just died after six years of twice-a-day use. I can't blame the toothbrush for biting (no pun intended) the dust recently. It also fell off the bathroom sink to the floor at least twice.

I'm surprised by the great improvement in these toothbrushes between my old model and my new 3000. I love the new 30-second quadrant alerts (the old one just had a two-minute alert) that let you know when each fourth of your mouth has been brushed for a sufficient amount of time, the too much pressure alert red light that appears if you press too firmly while brushing, and the battery charge indicator in the handle.

The charging base can be removed from the brush head holder for easy cleaning and travel. I almost bought the 4000 to receive the newly designed charger base that is like a donut with a hole in the bottom, so gunk doesn't deposit on the charger. The 4000 also comes with a travel case that would be nice to have. I decided I couldn't justify the increased cost of these and other cool bells and whistles that are packaged with the 4000. The 3000 suits my needs just fine.

The 3000 is also quite a bit more powerful than my former toothbrush. I can understand why some people may want to use the "sensitive" power setting while they are getting used to this cleaning machine. The 3000 also has a daily cleaning power setting (that's the one I use) and a tooth polishing power setting (that I am anxious to try after I purchase a polishing brush head).

My teeth always felt clean after brushing with my old Oral-B/Braun toothbrush, but they feel EXTRA SQUEAKY CLEAN now with the 3000.

This is a great product that can be had at a reasonable price if you catch it during sales and promotions.

While this product cleans teeth well, it has a very annoyiing flashing red light close to the eyes that is very bright. Don't buy if you are sensitive to this. I called them about this and they said they had had no other complaints. I was then told to put duct tape over the light. I called again and they finally agreed to return my money if I sent it back. The 1000 is the only model does not have this feature. Do not buy this if you or your child are prone to seizures or migraine.

    Comments about Oral-B Professional Care 3000 Power Toothbrush, 1 ea:

    I had a predecessor of this toothbrush, and it lasted for 7 years, which is great. I therefore decided to stick with the same brand (also because I had several new replacement brushheads that fit this brand). I use the regular cycle; and I understand the gentle cycle. I can't figure out the whitening cycle (which is why I purchased this model instead of the cheaper one). How the whitening cycle works is not explained in the instructions; and it seems to switch between regular and gentle. A prior reviewer complained about the flashing red light. That light flashes to signal ONLY when you brush too hard. If a user is really sensitive to the flash, and can't stop brushing too hard, I suggest closing their eyes. The light rarely flashes for me, and when it does I hardly notice it.

      I have used this product for years and had to purchase a new one, because my daughter took the toothbrush with her when she moved into her first apartment. She would not leave without the electric toothbrush!

        After a few weeks with this brush I am very satisfied. I hd issues with other powerbrushes aggravating my gums but this one does the job with no pain. I might research a larger brush head if possible but that would be my only change.

          My favorite part of this toothbrush is the pressure indicator light that comes on when I'm brushing too hard. The brush head gets in all the little spaces and cleans well. I like the timer that lets me know when 30 seconds are up and I should move to the next quadrant.

              I love the Oral B 3000. It allows me to brush hard to reach places and I like the hard brushing feature. Overall my teeth feel cleaner after using it. With that said I don't like using it to brush my tongue.

              I loved this toothbrush! I like it better than the Sonicare that I currently use. In fact, I can honestly say that it makes my teeth feel much cleaner than the Sonicare does. I like that this toothbrush feels like it gives individual attention to each tooth. I love it!!!!!

              This was very easy to use. Easy to keep clean. Easy to keep charged as well. The brush heads seem to be easily replaced without any issues.

              My only complaint is that it is extremely messy if you accidentally take the brush out of the mouth. It will spray toothpaste foam all over your mirror, and in my case, my glasses too.

                  I bought this toothbrush when I got braces over two years ago, to facilitate cleaning in between the brackets and to feel more confident that I was cleaning my teeth more thoroughly than with a manual toothbrush. I love it! It simulates the brush my dental hygienist uses. The 2-minute timer is very helpful -- lets me know when I've completed a thorough cleaning.

                  A message to suzy in Illinois, who complained about the flashing red light: this is meant to indicate that the user is pushing too hard with the toothbrush. It's a warning light. If it was flashing even when you were barely touching your teeth, the toothbrush was defective. The light on my toothbrush flashes only when I'm using too much pressure, and I back off. If the customer service rep you talked to didn't inform you of this function, he/she did you a disservice.

                  I recommend this brush highly to anybody who wants a professional-style dental cleaning daily at home.
