Reviews for Oral-B Pro 1000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush, Black
People say Oralb is really similar to Philips Sonicare.
I have used a sonicare long head brush for years. I went to the dentist and had some gum issues they stated to try the rotating Oral B rechargeable brush. I ordered it and have been using for 8 months now and this has aided in my gum issues like a night and day difference. my teeth and gums feel so much more clean after use too. Last visit to the dentist produced positive results with my gum receding issue the brush is actually stimulating growth of gum better than the Philips Sonicare unit. I have ordered more Oral B units for my family I am so impressed with it.
Best Value for Money Brush
Although you may find fancier brushes with apps, bluetooth, etc. those bells and whistles are not needed and this brush works great to get the job done. Pros: The brush head is small and easy to maneuver The pressure sensor pauses the brush when you apply too much pressure while brushing Battery seems to last about a week on a single charge Cons: The charging stand is not waterproof Due to the small size of the brush head, you have to brush one tooth at a time My dentist recommended Philips Sonicare over this, but this may just be a matter of preference
Better than Sonicare
Have used a Philips Sonicare for years but decided to give this a try when my Sonicare died. I have been more than happy and got a great report from my dental hygienist. I would recommend this and you couldn't beat this price.
Wow- clean teeth!!
For $40, this is a power house toothbrush. Had the $300 Philips Sonicare and this blows it away. Teeth are sparkling clean!!
Cleans very well
I also have a Philips Sonicare. I prefer both the cleaning method and sound of this Oral-B.
My husband and I were looking to replace our Philips Sonicare toothbrush that ran its course of about five years. We came across this one, read very many positive reviews, and decided to purchase it. This toothbrush is amazing! It cleans our teeth really well and we definitely feel like we are getting our money’s worth.
i do have a Philips sonicare expensive version which is holding a better battery life
Works well from day-one , i do have a Philips sonicare expensive version which is holding a better battery life . But as far as plaque or cleaning capabilities oral-b is better
The biggest ADVANTAGE I see - compared to the Philips Sonicare - is this: Sonicare comes with two encasements to scroll the brush part to the motor. It always gets fungus black yuck into it. THIS ORAL B has none of it. Just a stick! Push it in and then put to charge (Or just charge without brush). The charger HOLDS the brush! If you move the Philips Sonicare charger, the brush/motor FALLS OUT! Not this one, NOT EVEN if you turn it up side down if you push it in the right direction. Although, it takes like FOREVER to fully charge it, you may use it after minutes of charging. Yet: YOU CANNOT SEE WHAT LEVEL IT IS CHARGED (like in oral b Genius 8000). READ THE INSTRUCTIONS: At first I thought the MOTOR was weak. No: they name it PRESSURE SENSOR to “protect your gums” not too hard to push. Or maybe it’s the “every-30-second-turn-the-power-low NOT TO DISTURB YOU - which they have!! - but to tell you “you-just-brushed-30-seconds!) Well, negro - black is nice. Smaller than Philips Sonicare and definitely EASIER to put together. One click! The handle is not all black like the black version of oral b Genius 8000. This is slightly slimmer and shorter than the oral b Genius 8000. (SEE PHOTOS BELOW) The motor of this oral b PRO 1000 is STRONGER than the oral b Genius 8000 in any function. I bless you: use ANY BRUSH HEAD ON THIS ONE regardless this has not the “vibrating functions” other highly EXPENSIVE oral b versions like the oral b Genius 8000 has build in. I TRULY SEE IT DOES...

Works great but a little loud
A little loud compare to my wife's Philip's sonicare but works great as well. I do recommend buying if you don't mind the noise.
Feels Like Painless, DIY Dentist Visit, But Low Battery Life
I've been using this toothbrush for a couple weeks now after wearing out my philips sonicare (comparable) version. I love that after each use, teeth and mouth feel much cleaner! Only thing is the charging function. Not sure if it's just mine, but after I charge it for a few hours, it somehow runs out of battery within a couple of days, which is inconvenient.
