My Braun Oral-B toothbrush is at least 5 years sold. It has yet to give up, but this is such a good deal. What makes this so much better than other ones...

I believe, from the research I previously did, that from 2000 upwards all have an identical toothbrush (rpm etc.), it's just the added features which separate it out.

This for instance has zones (to ensure you brush all 4 quadrants for 30s), WiFi linking the reports back to an app, and other gimmicks (IMO) like this.

We have this toothbrush. It's pretty solid. I like the 30 second per area. Good reminder.

Great price for this model. However, as articolours mentioned, anything 2000 and above are basically the same. All models have 30s brush areas. The higher models just have more brushing modes. Honestly, I doubt hardly anyone uses other modes than the regular. I have owned 2000, 5000, 8000 models. All are made in Germany and pretty much the same. My current ones have Bluetooth which is useless to me. The Costco 2 pack for $100 (when on sale) would be a better deal IMO.

I have heard some newer higher end models now use lithium (instead of Ni-mh) batteries. That would be the only thing to persuade me on spending more.

I literally use this toothbrush daily - honestly its great but as others said, its not that different from models above 3000 (I believe 2000 is the same as 3000?)

I only bought it because I got a great deal on it (~75-80 new with warranty on eBay) - 3000 series usually goes for around ~50 so this was a bit of a no-brainer for me. Furthermore, I get a lot of use of the timer clock and the whitening mode (plus occasionally the power mode with extra RPM - can't remember what its called) so the extras are somewhat worthwhile for me

I've owned it for around 9 months now and not had a single issue with it so far

p.s. you can read more about the different Oral B toothbrush models here - https://www.animated-teeth.com/electric ... rushes.htm

IIRC, the 7000 doesn't have a lithium battery. In contrast to the other higher end Oral-B models (6000, 7500, 8000).

I got this from Amazon.com in the summer for $65 USD. It does the job better than my Philips (which died twice in the first year -- never again) but I really don't think these toothbrushes are worth more than $50 max. Bluetooth on a toothbrush is just dumb, sorry. I also find that handle a bit uncomfortable and the buttons aren't placed very well for use while brushing. But other than that, it cleans my teeth very well which is all that really matters. I also like the visible timer.

No such thing as extra RPM. All 2000 and up models have same RPM. There is a deep cleaning mode where you brush for 3 instead of 2 minutes.

Right, that's what I meant (i mixed the increased RPM feature on my shaver with the toothbrush lol)

I do use it occasionally although for me the whitening mode is the best additional mode

Just bought the 8000 but it can't connect to my phone and it has no little separate display unit. I googled it and found that phones with Android 7.0 has the issue about connection....

I have same toothbrush which I bought in July for $125. Prior to this model, I had a lower-end model I used for 7 years. But its battery became weaker to take for travels.

This Bluetooth thing is a gimmick though. I used it only for a month and stopped using it. But the digital timer gadget and premium travel case is top notch!

Like someone said in above post, Cotco's bundle is best deal IMO. I got one for my sister and mom as well.
