Oral-B<sup>&#174;</sup> Pulsonic<sup>&#174;</sup> Sonic Toothbrush
Love the toothbrush, but can't find replacement heads
We didn't have trouble finding replacement heads at our supermarket in the beginning, but now we can't find them anywhere. We resorted to buying another model of an Oral-B just to avoid the hassle of hunting online, but I just don't like our new model as much. When we first got the Pulsonic, we actually got compliments from the hygienist on how much cleaner our teeth were! When she asked what we were doing differently, I couldn't believe that I was the one recommending a product to the dental staff--it is that good. So I decided to go back to it, which means having to go online to hunt down the replacement heads. Maybe this would not be an issue if you guys didn't have so many different rechargeable electric toothbrushes. Retailers only have so much shelf space in the stores for the different brushes and all the different replacement heads. For a brief moment, we thought we spotted some replacement heads that would fit, but when we read the back of the package, it specifically mentioned that they do not fit the Pulsonic. This frustration is making me not like your product, which I don't want to do--I want to keep liking it! But truly, you have a bunch of different rechargeable electric toothbrushes--is this necessary? Really?? You should get rid of at least half of them, and focus on improving the quality of the ones that consumers like the most, and then make it convenient for getting replacement heads. I read all the other Pulsonic reviews, and although my toothbrush works fine, I shared a lot of the frustration and agreed with some of the suggestions. So for these reasons, my rating averages out to 3 stars.

brush heads won't stay on
I've had the Pulsonic approximately one year and now the brush heads won't stay on. I've replaced the brush heads twice and not a fix. Otherwise it's an excellent brush, but it's difficult to brush when the brush heads pop off in your mouth.

I have had this toothbrush for several years and have not had a single problem. Having a little trouble finding replacement heads this time, but see they can be ordered. I would recommend this product to others.

COOL SEXY CRAZY
Yup. That's the order of this product. 1st - It's cool for it's simplicity design. 2nd - It's sexy showing it off during use. Until, it's CRAZY (it won't SHUT OFF: NO MATTER WHAT); and then some - it's SCREECHES! Just crazy! And no where, I mean NO WHERE are any instructions, warnings, or signs where/how to fix this. You *CAN'T* turn it off, and the ONLY hope you have is to "LET IT DIE" , but HOW LONG CAN THAT TAKE? No where in the Manual, Online - has the answer. The ONLY answer for it to STOP, is to place it back on the Charger (Charging). But soon as you take it off, IT'S CRAZY! A Catch-22
This is the ONLY Sonic-Electric toothbrush I found pleasing to the eye/design. I only wished it was 1/2 as good as the manual instructed. No such red light, flashing light, warning light went.
ORAL B : Please fix this problem . Or better yet, ANSWER THE QUESTION: When CRAZY MODE: How do you SHUT IT OFF? :/

Works fantastic, less bulky than others
3 in my house, never had a problem.
As good if not better than sonicare less bulky more convenient, looks and feels like a regular toothbrush.
Unlike sonicare, it's easy to travel with, & fits in most toothbrush holders
I've gone away as long as 4 days without charger and it hasn't died on me yet, even if it did,

Love this toothbrush!
I own my first Oral-B Pulsonic Sonic Electric Toothbrush for a few yrs.maybe a good (3-4 yrs.).My husband & I share it (different brush heads of course).I purchased several replacement heads. I don't want to ever ran out. He loves that its powerful & it's finally going bad, it's still working though but the power button is getting harder for me to push. My husband will keep using the older one, until that one dies. And I just recently bought a new one from eBay at a good price. Unfortunately this model is discontinued. I like the slim design unlike the newer versions that's bulky. I hope I will get many years of use out of my new one. I'm thinking of just buying another one for my husband.

I love this toothbrush!
Out of all the battery operated toothbrushes I have owned and used this one is by far the best so far. My teeth are whiter and feel super clean every time I brush. It even has a sensitive mode which I love when my teeth get extra sensitive and to brush my tongue. I'm going to keep this as long as the battery keeps going lol. I already bought a years worth of replacement heads just in case they become hard to find. I'm buying more. This is my favorite toothbrush so far. Thanks Oral B :)

Great toothbrush very difficult to find replacement heads
The toothbrush is good. However it hash;t had much use as it is so hard to find replacement heads. Unacceptable for a product that is so expensive..
Ironic that the 2 other Oral B toothbrushes in our household cost less than half the price of this one and are easy to get replacement heads for.
