4 out of 5 eggsOldie but a goodie

Pros: Cleans teeth really well, quiet, maintains strong charge, quality constructed

Cons: Replacement heads cost quite a bit more than the newer type heads. Heavier and larger than the current style models. All sonicare models will take some time to get used to the strange new 'feeling' when brushing but trust me within two weeks it will seem normal and you won't even notice it anymore... at least that was both myself and my wife's experience.

Other Thoughts: I didn't even realize that this was an older/discontinued model when I purchased it... it was cheap so I got it. I liked it so much that the wife began asking for hers so.... I began searching for a Sonicare for her and THAT'S when I discovered that what I had was the old model. The new models were a good deal more expensive but had cheaper replacement heads... so I got her one of the new models (for more money). Lo... what I found out was the newer models are noisy (perhaps its because the frequency sounds different or maybe the resonance frequency of the parts are a multiple of the vibration freq?) I don't know, its just noisier and reading some other comments on other websites, others complaints verify this issue). Also the new models are smaller and lighter which is a plus with the wife however I personally don't mind the heft and larger size of the older model.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing for a previous sonicare owner

Pros: Cheapest Sonicare out there. This is a nice entry level price.

Cons: I recently purchased this at another store and upon using it discovered that it lacks the quadpacer timer. If you had a sonicare before and know what that means (a reminder beep every 30 seconds to know when to move to a different section of your mouth), then you either like it or hate it.

I bought this brush thinking it would obviously be the same as what I had, but it lacked this important feature, so I returned it.

Replacement heads are more expensive than the replacement heads for the more expensive brush handles.

4 out of 5 eggsWork's well.

Pros: Love it. The price is right and this brush make's a big difference.

Cons: Flimsy...Don't get me wrong it's amazing and it's not so bad that i say no go. I had an older one one of the first that came out and all i can say is this 1 is just lighter and feel's a bit fragile.

Other Thoughts: But it just do so cheep brush's will cost more then this in the long run and this help's you're mouth so just do it.

1 out of 5 eggsPhilips re-introduced a flawed design

Pros: It's sonicare technology, so it cleans your teeth very well and can even lighten them a shade.

Cons: The issue is that this type of head was on the original sonicare. Saliva, toothpaste foam and water seeps into the interior of the head. It becomes a nasty smelly mess unless you CONSTANTLY clean it and dry the inside. I am shocked they dared to reintroduce this model as it got severely blasted in the past for this nasty side effect. I was not aware at first this was the old model head. Too late now to return but went with a Flexcare after I got this instead.

Other Thoughts: It's roughly fifty bucks. For about 25 more you can get a basic sonicare Flexcare or an equally well designed waterpik sensonic. Sensonic replacement heads are cheaper than Phillips. I went with Flexcare as I had a box of spare heads.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks very well!

Pros: Holds a charge for some time, easy to change heads, heads last a while, easy to use, timer helps.

Both my wife and I are using the same body and the charge lasts about 2 weeks or so, brushing twice a day, each. 3 second head swap.

This thing works like a charm! You must actually read the directions on how to properly use it, however.

Cons: Do NOT take the brush head out of your mouth while brushing or you will have toothpaste spraying everywhere!

Other Thoughts: Like the other reviewer said, maybe pick up another couple sets of heads, I'm always disappointed when they update models and quit supporting the old versions.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth every cent....

Pros: I don't own this model but I have the HX6710 which I've owned for over two years replacing an even older model. Using this type of dental care product has really paid off. I had not seen a dentist in over four years (just been busy) and I saw the dentist a month ago and had no cavity's and all healthy gums. Needless to say I didn't have my teeth cleaned in that time period as well. I now do the cleaning every 3 months but only becuase she, the denist, is good looking, lol. This stays charged for a very long time as well and the heads last a long time.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: I would buy the extra head replacements now. You never know when a model changes and they are not available.
