I love having an electric toothbrush. I have had an Oral-B Triumph (the top of the line version of this one) and it really does all of the work for you and is very easy on your gums. At first, it felt a little weird getting used to the vibrating feel in my mouth, though got used to it. The only con I would say is that holding toothbrush is much heavier and wider than a regular toothbrush, which you would need to get used to as well. Good luck in whatever you decide to purchase!
