Is there anything drastically wrong with this toothbrush? No, this is a fantastic budget electric toothbrush. It gives most of the basics you need of an electric toothbrush.
It does not have lots of cleaning modes, or lots of extra features, you need to spend more to get this.

There are much more capable and feature rich brushes available. However, these are by no means essential and the 1000 offers a lovely balance of features for the price. Within the Oral-B range at the time of writing there is the Vitality and Pro 500 electric toothbrushes. Whilst ok and do offer some of the benefits of an electric toothbrush, I do not feel that they really offer what should be considered essential in an electric brush. Most importantly they do not have a quadpacer which is very useful. There are potentially different versions of this brush. In most cases, the difference is only the color of the brush handle, specifically the rubber grip that runs down the middle of the handle. The most common colors are: However, you may also see: There are no technical differences in the performance or the way it cleans. Another potential difference, although not very common is the brush head that is included with it. Normally it is the CrossAction brush head, but some variants may come with a Pro White or Sensitive brush head. In most instances, the brush is sold with a White or Black rubber grip and with a CrossAction brush head. It would be logical to think that a new product name, would mean different features or technical ability. But, despite the different name, the ONLY difference is the color of the grip that runs down the brush handle and the labeling on the box it comes provided in. The new colours are: As a result, it is listed on retailers websites as the Pro 1000, not the Pro 1 1000, despite images within product listings showing Pro 1 1000 on the box. So, the Pro 1 1000 and Pro 1000 are the same thing, the only difference is the color of the grip on the handle. This has been verified by Oral-B via an online chat. Braun Oral-B Pro 1000 rechargeable toothbrush Charging station 1 x CrossAction brush head Documentation. Oral-B 3D movement cleaning system (Oscillating-Rotating-Pulsating) Removes 100% more plaque than a manual brush Rechargeable battery 1 cleaning modes (Daily Clean) Pressure sensor (not visible) Clean timer including quadpacer 7 day battery life. Here are what I consider to be the pros and cons of the Pro 1000. Design -- Slim and lightweight, it feels good in the hand and well placed grips make it easy to hold. 1 cleaning mode -- No nonsense get the job done approach. Timer -- A built-in timer encourages you to brush for the dentist recommended 2 minutes along with a pacer to ensure an even brushing around the mouth.
American Dental Association (ADA) approved -- Passed strict lab tests to achieve ADA and American National Standards Institute-approved dental standards. Battery life/status -- It would be nice if the battery lasted a little longer than the 7 days and it would be better if there was more feedback from the brush on how much power remains in the battery. Get a red flashing light when low, but nothing more really. Box contents -- The inclusion of an extra brush head or travel case would be appreciated. Made by one of the leading brands within the dental health space the Pro 1000 from Oral-B is a real pleasure to use everyday. Starting first with the design, the Pro 1000 is slim and lightweight in the hand.
Made up of two parts, you have the brush handle and the detachable brush head. The handle is what contains the battery, motor and other high tech stuff that allows the brush to perform so well. Whilst not a perfect cylinder shape it is curved and feels good to hold and it is not heavy. This makes it nice and easy to maneuver around the mouth and clean your teeth properly. This also helps older children who may use this brush or seniors who may not have the same dexterity that they once had.
