Beautiful brush, beautiful results
On opening the box you know that this isn't your everyday electric toothbrush - before even looking at the accessories the design of the brush itself is gorgeous. The sleek storage box that allows you to also charge your toothbrush while it's stored is a bonus, as is the classy perspex & rose gold stand.
The toothbrush is beautifully designed, feels great in your hand and switching between modes is simple - the light up display is a great touch. Worth note is the fact that the body of the brush is easy to clean and, due to the concave shape of the bottom and no recess required for a charger, doesn't collect "gunk" at the base like some brushes!
I tried every mode and the difference in each is noticeable. Compared to my old electric toothbrush (now renamed The Boneshaker) this brush works with more of a hum than a buzz! My mouth was left feeling incredibly clean - the brush head really gets into every nook and cranny and the timer for each quadrant of your mouth is helpful. I have issues with sensitive teeth and gums and even outwith the "Sensitive" and "Gum Care" modes this toothbrush never gave me any issues with sensitivity or bleeding gums.
After a week of use I haven't had to recharge yet and haven't had any noticeable difference in power whereas my old brush would have required at least one charge by now!
This is a really great toothbrush - both in its design and performance.

The Philips Sonicare range of toothbrushes is the best you can get.
The DiamondClean Rose Gold edition is the latest. It provides you with a selection of brushing options: clean, whiten, polish, gum care and sensitive. Each setting has a timer so you know how long to keep going for and when to swap to different areas of your mouth. After using it, your teeth feel amazingly smooth and much cleaner than a normal toothbrush.
The Sonicare has an excellent battery life. A single charge can last more than 3 weeks which is way longer than most of the other brands.
Most electric toothbrushes charge by placing your toothbrush on a little plastic prong on a charging station. Over time, water and dirt will drip down and they can become rather grubby and unpleasant. This Sonicare comes with a glass that you simply place your toothbrush into. The glass fits onto the charging station. So any little drips or dirt can be easily washed away .
The second feature is the travel case. There is a high quality case which not only stores your toothbrush but which can double up as a charger. You simply plug in the case and the toothbrush gets charged while in there. It comes with both an electric shaver plug and also a USB. So you can charge the toothbrush pretty much anywhere.
Overall, this is a an excellent product,and i would highly recommend buying one.

Really pleased with this toothbrush
The toothbrush is well designed and seems to be well made. It works well and looks and feels good in the hand. It is definitely an improvement on my last electronic toothbrush. So far, I have only tried the basic clean mode and the whitening mode but it cleans my teeth very thoroughly in both of these modes. My mouth feels much cleaner than with a conventional manual toothbrush. The two minute timer is useful to ensure that you use it for sufficient time and the pulsing reminders every 30 seconds are helpful. The only minor criticism I can find is that it takes a little too long to charge up. I do not have an electrical socket in my bathroom so I have to remember to find a socket to charge it once a week and I always need it before it has finished charging and therefore have to return it to the charging stand for its final top-up. It may last longer than a week on a single charge but I don't want it to run right down. To be fair, others may not have this problem. If you have mains in your bathroom you would probably just leave the charging stand permanently plugged-in as charging stops when complete.

Designed by a committee!
- It looks good;
- It's quiet;
- Power is adjustable
- To switch off you have to cycle through all the programmes. There should have been an option to just hold the on / off button to switch off;
- Unit is supplied with two chargers! Having a USB charger seems an excellent idea but it only works with the travel case and not with standard base. Considering that the average person travels once or twice a year that's rather useless. Philips could have saved money by having one USB charger connecting to both base or case. That also would have been ideal for people who do not have electric power in the bathroom where they could have used external battery for charging!.
-Philips does not sell base with USB connector as an option
- Travel case is too bulky, taking too much space in the luggage

Best electric toothbrush I've tried
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean is very well designed and full of functionality. There are 5 different modes that can be used and are accessed my holding down the power button. Each of these modes lights up when selected and provide a different cleaning experience. The standard clean mode lasts for 2 minutes and vibrates every 30 seconds to indicates that you should move the next section. The white mode is the same as the mode but has an additional minute to focus on the front teeth. The polish mode is only for the front teeth and lasts about a minute. The gum care mode is similar to the clean mode but has an additional minute to focus on the gum and is at a lower intensity. Finally, there is the sensitive mode which lasts for 2 minutes and works at a lower intensity compared to the other modes.
There are two options when it comes to charging the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean. The first is using the glass charging base and the second is the carry case. The bathroom glass sits on top of the inductive charger and you simply place the toothbrush into the glass. The toothbrush then simply charges and any surplus water are collected in the glass. The glass itself is dishwasher safe. The charging carry case is powered via USB charger which makes it extremely convenient when travelling. I have used my laptop to charge it and found there to be no issues with that feature. The battery life is very good and I have only recharged it once in over 3 weeks.
I mainly used the used the gum care and whitening modes as these best matched my needs. The move from a manual toothbrush to the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean has been extremely easy and beneficial. I have had the issue with plaque build up in the past and was interested in seeing if an electric toothbrush could help. I have been pleasantly surprised with results and can see a noticeable reduction of plaque.
I have used the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean for a while now and can confidently say that product has exceeded my expectations and I have no issue recommended it.

Wow - this toothbrush really did leave my mouth feeling fresher and tingling clean after just one use. I like the different settings that are available on the brush, making it a good all-in-one brush to have. I predominantly use the Deep clean, Gum and whitening option the most and find that in comparison to normal brushing this brush delivers a very consistent clean all over the mouth. The brush itself is comfortable to hold and the texture of the handle means it doesn't slip out of the hand. The head is very easy to attach and detach. The carry pouch is perfect to take the brush with you on holiday. Don't know what else to say except its a great product and I would definitely recommend it.

Wonderful whiter teeth and great case
I switched from a battered tooth brush which I felt was not doing the job anymore. After using this for less than 2 months I have noticed that my teeth are whiter and also such a fresh feeling in the morning and evenings.
The accessories it comes with - charging stand and also a charging case / usb. Really makes this toothbrush stand out. It is great when travelling and love that it is in Rose Gold.
There are a few different modes which allow different power and I really feel like my gums are healthier in less than 2 months.
The dentist commented on how my teeth had really improved.

From manual to Sonicare - my findings
I've always been an avid fan of the manual brush but kept hearing how much better electric brushes were for my oral health.
Its safe to say the Sonicare brush has converted me. My mouth felt refreshed and clean, and I knew it was improving oral health at the same time. The technology involved also reassured me that my teeth and gums were getting good care.
The charge lasts for ages then i'd charge it overnight ready to go for the next day. I Like the different settings too, especially the whitening and deep clean options.
