Q: What are the customized brushing modes, and how do they differ from one another?
A: The Oral-B PC 5000 features the following modes: Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening and Deep Clean. Daily Clean operates with 3D movement for a basic, everyday clean and includes the added benefit of a visible pressure sensor. Gum Care features massage mode for the gentle stimulation of gums. Sensitive operates at a lower speed to gently clean teeth and gums. Whitening alternates between speeds for a gentle polishing on the tooth surface to remove surface stains. Deep Clean extends your brushing time for an even more comprehensive clean.

Q: How long does the PC 5000 hold a charge?
A: A fully charged Oral-B PC 5000 lasts for up to 7 days with regular use. To ensure that your battery is able to hold its maximum capacity, deplete the battery by using without in-between charges until it is fully discharged. Do this at least once every 6 months for best results.

When I was making the decision to buy this model, I went back and forth as to whether to go with the SmartSeries 5000 with its separate "Smart Guide," (as opposed to the only slightly-cheaper 4000) but I'm glad I opted to pay the extra money for this additional gizmo. Aside from the fact that it doubles as an unobtrusive bathroom clock, I actually find that the visual guidance on brushing times, brushing mode, and brushing pressure help me to use this product to its full potential. Also, in case you were wondering, the cheaper AA-powered brushes you can get for a tenth of the price of this product simply DO NOT COMPARE.
UPDATE as of September 16, 2014: I am still using this product, and have had absolutely no problem with it.
UPDATE as of December 8, 2015: The poor thing finally gave up the ghost. Still, it had a good run. I'm buying a more current model.
I have been using this product for a couple of days now so I must report that I am overall very happy and satisfied with it. I read over the instructions twice, and when I used it for the first time, I was puzzled when I felt it doing small pauses. The instructions are ok. They could have broken it down dummy-style for some of us but oh well. I was a bit confused about how to set the timing part, but I figured it out. It could have been the excitement.
If you buy this product, it will do these short pulses every two minutes. After two minutes of brushing, the smiley comes up and winks. So cute. If you reach 4 minutes of brushing, it will do the pulse thing again. There is a DVD that comes with it to explain their brushing technique of using the brush. They break it down in 4 quadrants, 30 second intervals, two get in at least 2 minutes of brushing.
The toothbrush itself is a tad bit noisier and heavier than my old ancient basic one, but let me tell you, boy does it go. I feel like my teeth are getting a serious dental treatment, Spa Dente'. I don't know what this toothbrush will leave for the dentist to do, besides exrays. To switch between the different brushing styles, you will push the triangle button while the brush is on.Read more ›
Since I agree with all of the other 5 star ratings, I thought I would address the CONS from the less than 5 star ratings. And, there is no sense in repeating all of the great things in all of the excellent in-depth reviews on this Oral-B Toothbrush.
Con: THE WIRELESS SMART GUIDE'S CLOCK CAN ONLY BE SET AT 12:00.
Response: The wireless smart guide clock can be set to either 12 or 24 hour a day clock.
And, I love having the clock sitting on my bathroom counter top to help me keep track of my morning schedule.
Con: YOU REALLY DON'T NEED THIS PART AS IT ONLY TELLS YOU WHEN THE RECOMMENDED TIME OF 2 MINUTES IS DONE.
Response: As is stated above, it is also a very accurate clock and can also keep track of the 45 second brushing cycles. I like this feature. Also, if you tend to brush too firmly a little red light flashes on the LCD screen and the pulsation of the brush stops.
Con: You'll also receive a timer that reminds you when to move to a different quadrant of your mouth; a useless gimmick for an adult, in my opinion.
Response: I am an adult and I still love this feature. It is very easy not to brush your teeth long enough especially if you are in a hurry. The timer doesn't allow this to happen.
Now, some extra PROs:
Previously I was a diehard Philips Sonicare user for many years. But, I was having some problems with my gums and deep plaque buildup. I finally decided that there must be something better and more effective. After much research online and with my dentist's input, I decided on the Oral-B. I absolutely love the deep cleaning feature and brush head.Read more ›
This is an excellent electric toothbrush and it makes my teeth feel smooth and clean after brushing. The timer and pressure warning feature are nice and the brush is much easier to keep clean than the Sonicare I used to use. The only negative comment I can think of is that the brush head might be a little big for some people; I found brushing around my back molars a little difficult. Overall, though, this German-made toothbrush is probably one of the best electric toothbrushes available and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an electric toothbrush.
