I wanted a toothbrush that was good value and effective, this seems to fit the bill. Good brushing action and it reaches right to the back teeth, which is where my hygienist says I need to concentrate on. There's a bit of a technique needed to avoid the toothpaste getting thrown off the bristles as soon as you start it but just a matter of practice, I expect. Although I've only had it a few days it seems to hold its charge well. Very satisfied with this purchase.
