ProsCons
Learns when to save powerCan't turn off heated seat/water
Unique bowl premisting functionLarge tank reservoir
Price is rightLid is too weak to sit on


First, the basics:

  • This is a bidet seat, so it will be replacing your old toilet seat.  Find a place to toss that thing because you’re never going back to it.
  • It is electric, so you will need access to a power outlet (three pronged).
  • It comes in only the elongated size, so be sure that your toilet bowl depth is at least 20 inches.
  • Comes in white.
  • You will need a Phillips-head screwdriver (and possibly a flat-head screwdriver, depending on how your old toilet seat is mounted) for installation.
  • All other installation components are included.
  • The control panel on the side of the unit controls all functions.
  • The nozzle self-cleans and retracts after each use.
  • Nozzle cap can be removed for easier, more thorough cleaning.
  • The water is heated instantly, as there is no reservoir.
  • One-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The Pros:

  • Full suite of features.
    • SmartBidet have crammed features up the wazoo of the SB-110.  All of them are useful and everything works as you’d hope.
    • The oscillate feature is especially nice.  Being able to combo it with any other wash function is a major win.
    • The turbo function is actually quite powerful and is just a few PSI away from an enema.  Recommend for those with especially messy bathroom sessions.
  • Instant water heating system.
    • A fantastic feature that provides instant, unlimited warm water directly to ya bum.  Usually found in higher priced units, seeing this in an entry-level bidet seat is wonderfully surprising.

      A picture of the SB-110's replaceable nozzle cap.

      With a replaceable cap, the SB-110 is easier to clean and maintain.

  • Replaceable nozzle cap.
    • Just twist the cap and pop it off.
    • This makes cleaning and maintenance a lot easier.
  • Durable construction.
    • SmartBidet have forged a herculean bidet seat, one that can accommodate up to 440 pounds.
    • Everything else feels very sturdy and built to last as well.
  • Clean look.
    • The SB-110 was the first of SmartBidet’s attempts to redesign their bidet seats.  Previously,  their models looked quite utilitarian.  Thankfully, the new design looks sleeker and more modern.
  • Great customer service.
    • With any product, there will be reports of users experiencing some defective units.  While this isn’t good (obviously), the SmartBidet team has been quick to respond with replacements at no cost.

The Cons:

  • Smaller seat opening.
    • The bidet seat will be a bit smaller than your old seat in regards to the opening.  This might be problematic for larger users.
  • Water heater can be a little erratic.
    • While it functions well 90% of the time, the water heater can sometimes provide  dips in temperature.  While not a huge problem, it can be slightly annoying.
  • No pulsating/massage cleanse.
    • I’ve grown to really like this feature, as have many others who suffer from hemorrhoids and/or constipation.

Final Thoughts:

Another fine Korean bidet seat.  Coming from a country where bidets are the norm, the SmartBidet SB-110 provides nearly everything you could want from a bidet.  For the price, SmartBidet have created a super product that should please nearly anyone.

Unless you are unwilling to go without a deodorizer and pulsating function, consider the SmartBidet SB-110 as one of the front-runners in the budget bidet realm.
