I love the two intensity choices. I typically use the higher one which is quite forceful, but I like having the option to tone it down. I also like the extra features like the noise it makes to let you know you're pushing too hard and the beeping to let you know it needs charging soon. Overall, this toothbrush gives you an incredible bang for your buck. You won't be disappointed.
The charger that came with my old brush was a single piece that had a charging stand and a permanently attached cord that plugged into an outlet. The charger included with this brush is a charging stand that connects to a USB charger via a standard USB cord. This design is good, but they cheaped out and didn't include a USB charger (I think the cord was also not included, but I'm not certain). There was some disingenuous explanation about not wanting to generate extra waste since most people already have these, but the reality is it makes the brush an incomplete product as sold in order to save the company a buck on an inexplicably high priced toothbrush.
The toothbrush appears to be a significant improvement over the one I had from 6 years ago. It runs smoother and is quieter and more compact. It feels good, and the pressure sensor looks to be helpful.
Downside is that I wanted a digital copy of the user manual. I keep information about my purchases digital for easy access and paper reduction. I had a lot of trouble finding it on the web page. the search function was not useful.
My only complaint is that the package arrived dusty, dirty & badly damaged. The product was intact but I honestly couldn't tell if it had been opened. It was shipped in its flimsy retail packaging no cellophane, no shipping wrap of any type. In my original review I ranted about it having been shipped that way & included several photos. That review was rejected.
So far, I recommend this toothbrush but suggest that you might want to purchase it locally of from a source that protectively packages it before sending it out their door.
For $30 it is a bargain. Works fine with my other chargers, I don't like the USB model it shipped with.

I am writing about how bad these big companies have gotten with their pricing. A loaf of bread is smaller but costs more and the quality of ingredients has gone done. Chocolate bars have shrunk but the prices have inflated and they taste chemically due to all of the oil and less cocoa etc etc. You catch my drift.
With this toothbrush, their prices have gone up, the frickin replacement heads already cost a small fortune and now you have to buy a USB wall charger block. It doesn't come in the box. If I don't buy one, then I have to plug it into my laptop.
Also, if you buy the product in USA you can register and are elgible for a free replacemnt head and extended 30 day warranty but if you are in Canada than you only get an extended 30 day warranty (big whoop, give me the free replacement head instead).
The brush is peachy keen.
But I want to talk about the charger and the greenwashing. Philips includes a new charger that requires a USB power supply. To save the planet, Philips does not pack the power supply, and it packs the toothbrush in a egg-carton-like cardboard. Philips reminds us that they are doing everything to save the planet.
First of all, this toothbrush is NOT fully compatible with the older Sonicare chargers. After over 48 hours on the (older style) charger, the brush was not charged. I had to finish it on the new whoop-de-doo USB charger.
Philips, if you want to save the planet, and not just save yourself money on not having to have different plugs for different markets, sell JUST A HANDLE, and make it compatible with the old style chargers. This way, when I want to replace a handle that has died, I can do it without replacing a charger, and really save the planet.
