Philips 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.

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

Worth 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.
