The timer is also present in the toothbrush. Each of the brushing sessions in this Pursonic toothbrush continues for 2 minutes, and you have to focus on every teeth quadrant. Although this Pursonic brush is available at a lower price, you can get timer and all other refined features.

Reviewers of the Pursonic S500 appreciate the choice of brushing modes, partly because some find the vibrations on the "normal" setting so strong as to be uncomfortable.

What experts didn't like
Some reliabily and durabilty issues. High speed vibration can cause splatter.
- BestReviews
With the S500, you get a short warranty period of only one year. Pursonic’s website is less polished than the bigger brands, and we couldn’t locate an online manual or a section with answers to frequently asked questions.
- Top Ten Reviews
However, please note that the warranty for this brush is just 12 months, unlike the two years warranty offered by other noteworthy brands.
- Best 10 Product Reviews
Not easy to replace brush heads and the heads must be sturdier.
