I've bought several since the fall of 2013. We all love the toothbrush. When the battery dies, it's time to buy a new toothbrush...about every 3 months. That's what the dentist recommends, and that's what we've always done. I highly recommend this toothbrush to anyone. We've been 100% happy with it!

Don't wast your money!
Unfortunately, I have to concur with the other negative reviews posted about this toothbrush!
I was very disappointed with the performance and quality of this toothbrush. I purchased at least three of these toothbrushes and they all performed poorly.

Worst Product ever produced!
This is by far one of the worst products produced by P&G....... I have purchased 3 of these...... have not had a battery to last more than 30 days yet...... reminds me of the shaddy car mechanic that we have all delt with in our lives...... very deceptive..... 3 to 4 months battery life.... in your dreams...... will not purchase again and will make me reconsider all P&G purchases....

I love this toothbrush.
After reading the other reviews I wondered if we were using the same product. Maybe the store I buy mine sells more so none of the ones on the shelf are old. Mine last at least 2 months. And they only cost a little more than a regular toothbrush. One guy complained that all it does is vibrate. Well you do need to move your hand a bit but I feel that it does a fantastic job of cleaning my teeth. My dentist has even told me that I have great hygiene. I'll continue to buy this great toothbrush.

Not a great product
The toothbrush works OK. It's not the best that's out there, but adequate.
My peeve with the brush - which has caused me to jump through all the hoops just to submit a review - is that neither the brush head nor the battery are replaceable.
I assume, as in most mechanical contrivances, that the motor and machine "body" are the expensive parts; but, P&G has dictated that YOU WILL DISCARD THIS ENTIRE BRUSH AFTER 3 TO 4 MONTHS OF USE.
Do they truly think I'm going to buy another electric toothbrush from them with a stated life of 3 to 4 months? RIDICULOUS!
I'll stick with Sonicaire(sp) with replaceable brush and batteries.

Honestly, not the best oral-b tooth brush.
I bought my oral-b pulsar tooth brush approximately 2 weeks ago. I thought it seemed like a great tooth brush, eh not so much. Either mine is defective or it's just not the best oral-b brush. What i seem to notice is when you apply your toothpaste to the bristles and switch it on they dont even move so why even have a battery operated tooth bush if all it does is vibrate? because thats all it does. So it seems useless to me. It's defiantly not what i expected. As soon as the battery dies out ill go buy another tooth brush. I hear the batter has poor life anyways so hopefully it dont take that long or i may have to go back and purchase another one sooner than i thought.

Brush switched from AA to AAA!
This is a good powered brush that I've been using for years.
But recently I noticed that the company switched from AA to AAA battery despite the complaints about short battery life and non-replaceable nature of the battery.
That is LOW.
REDUCING the battery life so the consumers will be forced to purchase more brushes?
I don't know which P&G executive decided to go this route but I hope there is a backlash.
My family and I will be switching to a competing brand.
One other note: P&G use to have a brand reputation of producing top quality products. Is this a corporate switch to lower cost, lower quality goods?

Good product with limitations
The batteries cannot easily be replaced on the Oral-B Pulsar toothbrush. On most occasions, when we try to replace the battery, (1) it is difficult to retract the +terminal button and (2), with the new battery in place, the toothbrush fails to operate. Our conclusion is that there is a major design flaw in the way the terminal is designed either to allow the battery to be replaced easily or for the proper operation of the toothbrush once it's in place. So, as a toothbrush, it's OK; but, as a rechargeable toothbrush, it leaves a lot to be desired.
