Philips Sonicare HX6511/50 EasyClean Rechargeable &hellip by Philips Sonicare
The 'sonicare' brand is far more effective than the competition - which is why I persist with it. However, don't waste money with the more expensive models. You won't use their features, and they will fail within 30 months (my experience) - if not sooner (see other reviews).

I hear that Philips' patent expires 'soon' - can't wait as I feel Philips are abusing their monopoly.

On to my third light-sensing bulb for outside the front-door. Fit & forget... Works reliably, saves energy (and ) by not illuminating in the daytime, and when dark, consumes 20% of the energy.

HOWEVER, as per my experience with all other 'energy saving' bulbs, take the advertised life-expectancy with a pinch (or dose?) of salt. In this case, the previous (same make/model) bulb worked for 2.5 years at an ave of 12 hours per day (I know, not strictly true as not 3 full years) = 10,950 hours, 63% of the claimed lifespan.

Caveat Emptor!
HP 932XL Black & 933XL Cyan, Magenta & Yellow. HP &hellip by HP

Genuine Product - supplier would have you believe so. Hologram seal, QR verification code, in-built chip (all reporting straight back to big brother, no doubt - my Printer is on my LAN). As I said, more inbuilt security than a 20 banknote.

Rewards? As another reviewer asked. They are there, alright. 'Discounts' on other HP 'products… Read more
