Pros Inexpensive, great battery lifeVery easy to use, solid battery life, great cleaning powerGreat cleaning power, stylish, solidly comfortableExceptional battery life, comfortableLow list price, lots of colors available, comfortable
Cons Limited features, Not the best cleaning performanceOnly a single cleaning modeExorbitantly expensiveNot the best at cleaningLimited brushing modes, shorter battery life than other Sonicare models
Bottom Line We think this toothbrush is a good choice for those on the tightest of budgetsThe ProtectiveClean 4100 is a fantastic toothbrush that holds its own with the very best of the best of these productsThis is a great toothbrush but prohibitively expensive for most peopleThe 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 you
