Favorite ultrasonic/piezo units?

I am using a titan sonic scaler, my employer purchased it because it was cheap and we have had a few piezo units break. It sprays tons of water and I dont find it as effective on tenacious calculus. Has anyone found a unit they like, that patients like and thats reliable and won’t break down after a year?

“You get what you pay for,” seems to apply here. I’m sorry your employer won’t purchase equipment that holds up better! My dad used to always say, “I can’t afford cheap,” because if you are always having to replace something, you end up spending more money in the long run than you otherwise would have if you bought quality in the first place.
 
Personally, I’m “team magnetostrictive” and am a fan of Dentsply’s Cavitron. I believe some manufacturers allow a trial period for ultrasonic units; this way you can find one you think works best for your needs. This might be something to look into.
