IF you are traveling this is worth it, otherwise..

The Philips website rejected my review, so you decide if there is anything that they should object to.
I bought this because I wanted to have something like a WaterPik when I travel. I hate flossing and the ads in the dentist office made it seem like a logical choice. I have tried several other traveling waterfloss products (Panasonic, Hitachi, etc). They were all a waste of my money. This product does work. However not as well as the Regular WaterPik product (but those are too bulky to travel with.
NET: GET the AIRFLOSS, if you travel and want to have a water flossing device. DO NOT GET the AIRFLOSS, if you do not travel or want a unit for home use. It is not as good as the WaterPik or other brands that use a plugged in pump. That makes sense, more power and water means better cleaning.
As a mechanical engineer who knows fluid dynamics, I have to admit that mixture jet of water and air is a very clever idea. Depending on mostly the speed of fluid, mixture ratio, and so on, it may be more powerful than only water or only air. Also, as an ordinary consumer who has used Waterpik for 5 years, I now prefer Airfloss much to Waterpik, not just because of cleanness after use but also because of elimination of mess and drooling of Waterpik. Most of people cannot avoid drooling while using Waterpik as it over-pours water into people's mouths, which is Waterpik's main and simple method to clean mouths. Any engineer who even doesn't know fluid dynamics can make this kind of simple devices. Pumping and shooting water into everywhere in the mouth and flooding water falling from the mouth? Not so fancy. (The surfaces of teeth can be cleaned by brushing not by shooting too much water. And it is not the objective of flossing.) Comparing with this too simplistic way, Airfloss has much more delicate but also very powerful way of cleaning between teeth, by focusing the fluid mixture power jet onto only between teeth, with certain amount of water, so there is no drooling at all. I can walk around in the living room or watch TV while I am flossing. Now, I am enjoying my flossing time finally.
I did not recieve a form with the product for a $10 rebate. I recommend this product for someone that does not floss their teeth on a regular basis or not at all. I went from a non-flosser to flossing every day. I love the feel of my teeth. I rate this product as excellent. The price was a little high but for the benefits of my teeth it is worth it. Would have liked to have the $10 rebate. How do I obtain that?
Works great, easy to use. Holds a charge for 2 weeks once fully charged. I have been using this for about a week and I already feel a huge difference. I like that it is easy to fill and the ease of use is amazing. I think everyone needs one of these flossers.
Very disappointed. First use the water was spraying out of connection between nozzle and handle. Cannot remedy situation. Will be going back which is unfortunate because I think it would be great if it worked as designed.
