Brush worked intermittently after 9 months and completely died after a year
on November 25, 2015
I should preface this by noting that I actually really like the brush. Teeth feel great, easy to use, very handy timer. There are 5 modes, though truthfully I keep it on the default first mode. I should also note that when I purchased the brush Nov. 6, 2014, the box said oral B professional but the actual toothbrush body is labeled triumph. Other reviewers mention this as well. I kept the brush despite this because, whatever. It's probably essentially the same brush.
Back to the buyer beware part. A year after purchasing and continual use, my brush seems to hold a charge for roughly 4-5 days of regular use and not the 10-12 days it started with. I have no problem with this as that's to be expected of any battery. What IS an issue, however, is that roughly 9 months after initial use my brush started to randomly slow down to nearly stopped, then speed up to crazy fast, then die. My brushing routine became A)turn on brush, B) brush for ~15 sec, C) brush dies, D) hit power, get no response X4, E) go to step A, X number of times. Exhausting. Fast forward to just past a year of ownership and the brush no longer vibrates. It turns on and battery shows full charge, but the brush won't move. Lazy brush.
So beware. When it works it's great, don't get me wrong, but for $100 I expect you to last for more than a year. Waste of money, and certainly not what I expected from oral b.
