First, I haven't found any advantage to using the Cross-Action heads, which have a second set of bristles in addition to the spinning brush. I think it's a gimmick without any real cleaning function, so I'd leave that out of the equation.
The battery-powered model costs less initially, but has the least power (and speed) and requires a new alkaline battery about once a month. That really adds up unless you use rechargeable batteries.
The rechargeable Cross-Action costs a bit more, uses replacement heads that cost a little less than the single spinning brush heads, and has more power than the battery operated model, but less power than the single brush model. The charge lasts several days, so I've taken it on business trips.
And then there's the Vitality rechargeable with the single brush. It's still very reasonably priced, and has the most power, but you pay a dollar more or so for each replacement brush. (With any of these, you have to be aware that the real cost is in the brush heads, which cost $4-6 each; you get a good deal on the unit because you're locked into buying the heads. They should be replaced three or four times a year (your mileage may vary), so you'll pay as much for the brush heads in a year as you'll pay for the unit.)
I prefer having the power of the Vitality. I also found that my Cross-Action rechargeable effectively died after about five years.Read more ›
Didn't seem especially noisy to me. Only possible disadvantage is that the head is not that easy to change (you get a plastic tool when you buy replacement heads). This means it's hard to share this toothbrush with your spouse.
Less expensive than most but it's not "cheap".
It's LOUD. Much louder than the Vitality. Annoying, loud, shrill buzz.
Other than that, it's good.
Like pretty much all rechargeable toothbrushes, this uses induction to charge the battery. This means that the charger is using up just as much electricity as it would use to charge it whenever it's plugged in, whether the battery needs charging, or the toothbrush is even holstered, or not. Fortunately, this one only uses a couple watts, according to my kill-a-watt and the documentation.
