does the job well -but some disappointments in the box

my new smart 5000 I a replacement for a much earlier model, which, after 8 years of regular brushing gave up the ghost. The replacement s lighter and noisier. My old smart 5000 had a replaceable battery (though you would ned to be a competent engineer to actually replace it.) But the new one spares you the option by making the battery non replacable -so when the battery eventually cannot take a charge you have to throw it away. The old SMART 5000 came with a travel case, but this model does not -which is inconvenient if you want to take your brush with you. In the pack is a particularly useless accessory - its a plastic holder which anchors the re-charging unit (unnecessary) and has a tray for 4 brush-heads. since brush heads are hygienically sealed before use (you would need to take them out of their wrappers) and only need replacing every 3 months, they really don't need to be arrayed like a table setting! The old ~SMART 5000 came with a clock, which -activated by switching the brush on - gave you a useful progress guide through the recommended 2 minute brush cycle. The progress guide has ben retained -but not the clock. Instead bluetooth connection activates an oral B app on your mobile. Personaly, I would rather not have to hunt around for my mobile every time I venture into the bathroom to clean my teeth. I have no problem with the brushing action and appreciate being able to use my existing stock of brush heads. So overall verdict is mixed - check out the alternatives before you buy.

No, I do not recommend this product.
