Electric Toothbrushes are said to be a better way of achieving a thorough oral cleaning, yet a staggering eighty five percent of consumers still prefer manual toothbrushes. Oral-B conducted this survey and they found that most people prefer the familiarity of the simple, to and fro motion of a manual toothbrush. I think this would be more of a generational thing, since I'm the most familiar with the disposable battery operated toothbrushes. I personally feel that even the disposable battery operated brushes provide a much better cleaning then a manual toothbrush.
To make the transition easier Oral-B developed the Professional Deep Sweep Triaction 1000. The notable difference is that the brush head is shaped like a manual toothbrush. I find that I really like this feature because the brush is a substantial size and thus covers more territory. It's also designed to be used as a manual toothbrush, so the user is brushing in the same fashion as they would a manual toothbrush.
If you still prefer not to part with your manual brush then you may want to consider these facts.

Removes 100% more plaque than manual toothbrushes
Removes 76% More plaque in hard to reach areas compared to the competition (Sonicare)
I love this toothbrush! it's very powerful and I feel as if I'm in the dentist office having my teeth professionally cleaned. There are seven tiers of brushes and as the name suggest, these brushes go to work sweeping back and forth.
I have the tendency to brush my teeth too hard which is bad for tooth enamel, so I appreciate that the Deep Sweep stops pulsating when too much pressure is applied to the teeth.

Rechargeable battery. Can remain on charger without harm for convenience.
Oral hygiene is important to me, mainly because I have crappy dental insurance. If you don't take good care of your teeth, then somewhere down the road it's gonna cost you. This very powerful toothbrush is just what the dentist ordered to keep appointments at bay. The average retail value for the Oral-B Deep Sweep Triaction 1000 is only sixty five dollars. A brush head will last three months. Surely a very wise investment.
