Pros Compact, long battery lifeVery easy to use, solid battery life, great cleaning powerExceptional battery life, comfortableLow list price, lots of colors available, comfortableComfortable, exceptional cleaning power
Cons Rubber bristles can feel disconcerting, didn’t do well in our cleaning testOnly a single cleaning modeNot the best at cleaningLimited brushing modes, shorter battery life than other Sonicare modelsLittle less convenient to use, lackluster battery life
Bottom Line We found it hard to distinguish between using the Quip and a manual toothbrushThe ProtectiveClean 4100 is a fantastic toothbrush that holds its own with the very best of the best of these productsThe SmartClean is comfortable with a great battery life though it didn’t do the best in our cleaning testIf you prefer a side-to-side brushing motion because it is a little gentler on your gums and our shopping on a budget, then the Sonicare Series 2 is for youThis product is a great choice if you want the ability to finely tune how your toothbrush brushes
