Excellent Toothbrush, I'm very pleased with it.I’ve used Braun professional electric toothbrushes for years, so I was very pleased to to try an alternative brand to see how it compared. The Philips seems a lot more sleek and refined than the Braun. It came fully charged, so I was able to start using it immediately. It has 3 intensity settings and 3 different brushing options that can be selected - clean - whitening & gum health.
I had not used a sonic toothbrush before and it does have a different sensation, which was strange at first but now I’m used to it. The unit came with 2 brush heads, which are for the whitening program, other brush heads are available for the different modes. The Philips detects which brush head you are using and automatically selects the correct mode or you can manually select any mode with any head. I found the timer very useful for making sure I brushed for 2 minutes and the sensor is a great addition as it prevents me from brushing too hard.
It comes with a travel case, which would come in handy if I decide to take it away with me.
I also like the small charging base, it’s very neat so it takes little room whilst charging.
So far I am very impressed with this toothbrush, my teeth do appear to be whiter already and
after using this toothbrush my teeth and gums feel very clean and healthy.
The instructions are very easy to understand and it doesn’t take long to be able to use the toothbrush.

What a great product!When I received my Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100 I was curious to see what this electric toothbrush had over others I had used in the past. And I must say I was not disappointed.
First of all, the pink colour is lovely, a great addition to my bathroom. the brush is very easy to handle and despite the many features of the product it was very easy to use.
Features which I loved are:
- The timer included in your brushing session. It helps me ensure I spend enough time on each side to make sure I get an optimum clean.
- The pressure sensor. A tendency of brushing your teeth too hard could result in receding gum, but with this toothbrush, no need to worry. The change of vibration is very subtle but it lets you know straight away when you are pushing too hard.
- The battery and toothbrush alerts. The battery lasts a very long time, I am yet to recharge it since its first charge. And the fact that each brush heads has its own connection to the device means you can be sure to change it when necessary.
The biggest pro :
Now the best thing about this product for me was how clean my teeth felt. I felt like a proper dentist clean and ensures my teeth to stay as white as possible.
I am afraid to say that I am yet to find a negative for this product, it is the perfect solution for me to keep a healthy dental hygiene and to make sure I keep my teeth white and shiny.

The best brush for an exceptional clean.I have been using electric toothbrushes now for a few years and have always found them good and a vast improvement to using a manual one but this toothbrush is in a league of it's own. It is so easy to use all you need to do is put the brush head onto the handle and the toothbrush knows the best setting to get the most out of the brush, at this point I was going to tell you all the information it says on the box but I’d prefer to tell you about my personal experience, so here we go ... this brush is so simple to use all you do is get it out of the box and attach the brush and the handle takes care of the rest, just wet the brush under the tap and squeeze on a small amount of toothpaste, start the brush with a simple press of the button and off you go, you’ll quickly find the toothpaste foams up nicely and goes between every tooth leaving you with the smoothest,cleanest feeling teeth ever and even better my teeth really do look whiter and brighter, it even lets you know when to move on to the next section of teeth and when you’re pressing too hard ,when you've finished you just pop it back on the compact charger or in the travel case that comes with it, you don't even have to worry about it running out of charge if your away as one charge will last days.The brush even has a feature to let you know when you need a new brush head. I honestly don’t think I’ll go back to using any other brush.

Great clean but let down by priceThere are lots of great things to say about the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100.It comes already charged and is easy to set up and use. It is very lightweight and quieter than other electric toothbrushes so no annoying buzz for the rest of the household. It comes in a brilliant carry case with an individual lid for the two heads I received.
The head of the brush is small which is great as easier to get into all areas of your teeth ,the battery life is brilliant and the toothbrush is easy to clean.
The toothbrush has a pressure sensor which is great and you can easily feel the change in vibration which alerts you to this .
With the Quad pacer the Sonicare 6100 is supposed to beep when time to change an area of your mouth but I found that it often beeped randomly even when I had just started.
Other features include a flashing light when time to change the head however I have not been able to test this as have only had for a month .
On the downside the toothbrush is very expensive and as each mode works with a different brushead the cost could be ongoing . Depending what pack you buy you do not get all heads included.
The design and position of the power button is a big downside as it’s too easy to press the power button off whilst brushing due to the natural way you grip the brush .
There is no UK adaptor included however this is the norm I believe.
There is no doubt this toothbrush will make your teeth and mouth feel sparkling clean and it has some fabulous features and sleek design however I do not think it outperforms a cheaper brush and so it’s not something I would buy again at the current price .

Very impressive resultsI have had this sonic toothbrush for about a few weeks to give it a full test. Very impressive results. This is my first electric toothbrush ever. Excellent toothbrush with pressure sensor. It makes my teeth very clean. My teeth and gums have never been better. It holds a charge very well. I can use it in the shower, and I can rinse/clean it very easily. I can use different heads on it, and I feel like I won't build up as much plaque. It is also easy to take on trips. Overall, I am impressed by this electric toothbrush and I highly recommend it, especially if this is your first time buying an electric toothbrush.

Definitely an improvement in whitenessI've had this product for about 6 weeks and have noticed a definite difference in the whiteness of my teeth since using it. So far, I've not had any reliability problems previous reviewers mentioned but I have to say, having seen the results, I'd think the inconvenience was worth it. I've previously used another brand of electric toothbrush and was sceptical of the claims made by Philips but it stands out as being far superior - my teeth are whiter than they have been in years. I've been quite self conscious in the past as I get a build up of staining on my front teeth in particular (I think caused by chronic catarrh) but this is tackling even that. I bought this along with the AirFloss Pro and am almost looking forward to my next dentist's appointment.
I definitely recommend this product.

Amazingly clean teeth.!I have been using this toothbrush for about two and a half weeks now and I am amazed at both how clean my teeth look and feel. When I first started using it, I was surprised at how fast the brush head moved- far quicker than any other electric toothbrush I have ever used. It came with two brush heads designed for whitening. As soon as the brush head was clipped on to the toothbrush, it instantly recognised that it was a whitening brush head & paired to the correct mode. I loved the Quadpacer function which tells you when you have spent the correct amount of time on each section of your mouth. The other function I found really good was the pressure sensor which changes the vibration of toothbrush if you are brushing your teeth too hard. However, if this is not for you, it is easily switched off by placing the toothbrush in the charger & holding the power button until you hear 3 little beeps. I was really surprised at how long the charge lasts too with the toothbrush- far, far longer than any other that I have used. I liked the fact that the toothbrush told you clearly when the battery was running low. I have not been using the toothbrush long enough to see it allerting me to change my brush head but I can only see this as a positive as it is quite easy to leave it longer than you should in between changes with a regular electric toothbrush. I am amazed at how much cleaner my teeth feel after brushing and I honestly think my teeth have whitened during the time I have used the brush. It also comes with a handy carrying case which holds the toothbrush and two brush heads.I really can’t fault it at all.

My teeth are looking whiter than they have ever done before!Truth be told I have always been a cynic when it came to electric toothbrushes, the sheer variety in both models and price always confused me but since purchasing the Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100 I can honestly see why it is priced the way it is.
I have been an electric toothbrush user for years and since changing my toothbrush to the Philips Sonicare my teeth have never looked so white and shiny!
The ProtectiveClean 6100 has 3 modes (clean, whiten & gum care) which have truly revolutionised my oral hygiene to obvious affect. The toothbrush is extremely smart letting you know when you are brushing too hard also which assists you in receiving a professional clean whilst at home.
Great battery life, great design - highly, highly recommended.
