Having tried all different electric toothbrushes including other 'sonic' ones. The Philips is the only one for me. This model is particularly good value another big selling point is that it takes the smaller replacement heads which are a lot cheaper (say £20 for four which makes them not much more than a new toothbrush). Cant recommend highly enough.

Not as effective as anticipated as I work in an orthodontic practice ,but better than manual brushing.I feel that more specific models are overpriced,therefore I cannot compare.

Its a great brush; just love it. when you first buy it, you have to make you charge it for 30 hours; which I did. After that I've used it for about 3 weeks until battery died; and I brush my teeth twice a day.
Battery wise; it does last longer and brush my teeth very well. well the Brand speaks for itself.
Even though it doesn't indicate that battery is low; you would know when you are brushing you teeth.
The brush does the job very well.xx

Cheap and nasty version of a good product. Wished I'd spent more now on the next model up as it doesn't clean as well.

I've been a religious user of electric toothbrushes since I was 14, I'm coming up 26 now so it's shows my devotion to them, having a dentist for a brother helps I guess. I have always used a Oral B brush, first the professional care, up to a vitality, to a professional care 600 then to a 3000. While I've found them they always had a few niggles that irritated me*. I first tried a colgate proclinical, which I found was alright, but the bristles were soooo soft that the cleaning was inferior what I had from my old oral b, plus the battery was rubbish. Then I stumbled onto this.

Let's make one thing clear, if you want a brush with the processing power to put the kettle on and launch a space station you will be gravely disappointed, this is the most basic brush I have used in a long time. No charging light, no segment timer, no anything. But to see that as a pitfall is missing the point.

This is a brush that does it's job and does it well, yes it's basic, yes it provides a lower motor speed than others in the sonicare range, yes it looks a bit cheap, but I've found it cleans my teeth, removes plaque, even allows me to scrub my tounge without gagging which is something I have failed to do in the past. My brother owns and uses a power up brush and recommends them to his patients daily, as they do the job with no fuss and a very good performance for the price. He also owns a sonicare easyclean and used this in preference, saying "the lower stroke speed has made no difference to my teeth in comparison to my other brush, in fact it's more comfortable."

Some people have stated the vibration through the handle is more unpleasant and different to the other sonicare brushes but to me it just feels different, no worse, I get the impression that the motor damping is lower, which is acceptable for the price.

At the end of the day, it's a bargain at the price it's sold for, I trust my own judgement, and I trust my brothers, I'm happy with it. What's stopping you? Don't forget if you don't like phillips will let you return it in the the first 28 days for a full refund if it doesn't suit you, plus a 2 year warranty, even better!

* if you had sensitive teeth a lot of people have said, including me that the oral b standard heads are too firm and cause gum soreness, but the sensitive heads were either too soft or wore out at a rate of knots. Along with that as the battery discharged the performance of the toothbrush dropped so fast that by the time you had 40% battery left the cleaning left lots to be desired, along with the frankly gimmicky degree of heads available.

This is an excellent toothbrush. It is easy to use and cleans teeth to a dentists standard.
It is a treat to use.
