Steve,

We're under the impression that the Pro 3000 and ProfessionalCare 3000 brushs are essentially (if not exactly) the same brush.

The Oral B ProfessionalCare 3000 was on our Best list last year and was replaced this year by the PRO 3000. It and the ProfessionalCare 4000 were the two brushes that last year we thought made best choices.

In terms of those features we think are most important (brushing modes, brushing action) and even those we don't care so much about (type of brush head it comes with, pressure indicator, brushing timer, lack of travel case) we are unaware of any differences between these two models except for their name.

Generally speaking, it is the number on an Oral-B model (like the 3000 here) that defines the characteristics of the brush, and hence explains the similarities of these two brushes.
