I thought I would treat myself to a decent toothbrush. It cleans very well. Has a very smart look and feels good in the hand.
Unfortunately it was unusable after just over two years use. Meaning it was not under warranty any more. The fault was, very loud when turned on and vibration was so muted it did not perform correctly.
I was offered a 10% discount on my next purchase. Hardly an offer when you get the same discount on the homepage of their website!
I will not be purchasing another philips product.

I was very hopeful when I bought this toothbrush, being the most expensive electric toothbrush on the market I was expecting a lot. I admit it does do a good job of cleaning your teeth, and I like the new design of brush head, it seems very effective.
The problem is, it's as though they put this toothbrush into production without actually trying to use it first.
The handle has a plastic smooth satin finish, which looks nice, but is really slippery and difficult to keep hold of. My previous Sonicare had a rubberized grip on the handle and I could use it effectively with quite a light touch, but with this one I have to grip it very firmly to try and stop it sliding through my hand, I have nearly dropped it several times so far.
It only has one button, it needs two. Using only one button you have to turn it on first then cycle through the different modes while it is running. Anyone who has used an electric toothbrush before knows that you must have it in your mouth before turning it on, or else toothpaste goes everywhere. So, in order to cycle through the modes to select the one you want, you need to have the toothbrush in your mouth, be in front of a mirror, turn the toothbrush so you can see the display in the mirror while ensuring the brush head is still inside your mouth, and then read the writing of the display as a mirror image. Simple eh ? My previous Sonicare had two buttons, you could select the mode before turning it on, this was very simple and effective.
Don't get me wrong, there are many features of this toothbrush that I like, such as being able to charge it in the travel case with a USB cable, and the fact that it does give a very good clean. I just don't see how I can ever be truly happy with it when it has those two major design flaws, especially when I have spent so much money. I suppose I could glue some rubber to the handle, and learn to count my way through the different modes, but at that price I really don't expect to have to start modifying a product to make it usable.

This product is definitely worth its weight in gold. It retains its charge in excess of a week even being used every night. The charging case for travel and convenient charging glass for at home, add to the feeling of pure luxury of this item. This was easily a most pleasurable purchase. Love the easily identifiable settings for each mode and the way it stands out on the black model that I preferred. I read reviews before I purchased, that stated that it takes getting used to....that was not my experience. From the sensitive, normal, polishing, right down to the whitening setting, I found them all very comfortable to tolerate. Leaves my mouth feeling clean and fresh with that "just come from the dental hygienist" feeling. If you want to improve the health of your gums and always have that 'dentist fresh' feeling? You won't regret this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1947 Over engineered
This product has been over engineered, the glass is really a frippery, I wonder how many houses have bathrooms with shaver points, where they could place it permanently?
The glass, would have been better replaced by another brush head.
Also, why doesn't the travel case allow charging by say a mobile phone charger cable? Thus saving having to take yet another cable with you!
Why is the charger base not charged using the usb cable? Yet more over engineering! And yet another cable not really necessary.
All in my mind making the product more expensive than necessary.

I have to say this is the best toothbrush I have ever used, my teeth have got whiter and feel so much cleaner too.
Defiantly a must have product.

This is a really good toothbrush and definitely does what is says on the box. The only down side is it does need a lot of charging up if you haven't got an electric point in your bathroom so you can pop it into the glass after every use.
