I've attached a picture here to show the mild issues in a less than 2 month old Sonicare toothbrush of this design. It was a replacement for another one (same type) that become unusable due to how much gross, smelly gunk/mold built up inside under the replaceable brush head.

I would skip this design and go for the kind with the thinner brush head, not this big hollow design. The other type is way easier to clean and lasts much longer!

If you get "addicted" to your Sonicare (especially the ultrasonic version, which my dentist claims works well to prevent gum disease) you often will want an electric toothbrush along for travel. But I'm nervous about losing an expensive brush such as the Ultrasonic while traveling. So this brush, is a good compromise. It doesn't have the same features as the ultrasonic version, and I don't like the heads (and they are about ten apiece to replace, which is pretty expensive, in my opinion.) But I don't feel as nervous about this brush possibly disappearing on a long trip out of town.

Some downsides: the charger is 110v only, so useless for traveling out of the country--but--it does stay charged for two weeks. (I suppose you can put it on a step-down transformer and you may have one anyway.) Depending on what promotional pack you get, you may not get a soft case (this doesn't have one.) There is a cap for the head, so it will stay clean in your kit.

There are cheaper alternatives: Oral-B Vitality Prowhite Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush costs less, could work as your spare. The battery life is shorter (1 week) so you'd need a charger along for trips.

Summary: for travel or if you don't want to spend a lot for an ultrasonic Philips brush, this is a decent alternative. The heads are expensive, however.

This is the first time I have owned an electric toothbrush, and boy have I been missing it! My teeth instantly feel cleaner and look whiter. I will never go back to a manual toothbrush again. I am not able to compare it to another make or model, however, I can say it was well worth the money.

Everybody in our family is using this product and it does an excellent job. I am using it for over two years and my hygienist noticed the difference after just using it for a few weeks. The batteries in the rechargeable units last for over a week, and we plug it into the charger only when it beeps for low battery. We also have one which uses a battery (it is used with a an Eneloop rechargeable battery) and the battery needs to be recharged every couple of weeks.

The only problem is that the brush needs to be disconnected from the base every few days as it collects water and it becomes dirty/moldy all the time. Despite this design problem, if cleaned regularly, it does an excellent job ;-)

This toothbrush is pretty loud and moves really, really fast so with a small head, you have to be careful not to hit your teeth, but this toothbrush cleans better than any other toothbrush I have ever had. My teeth feel like I just had a cleaning at the dentist, but without the anxiety of actually going to the dentist. Once I have gotten used to the toothbrush and am careful how I use it, I would not have another one. You don't put any pressure at all on your teeth, you just let it do its work and WOW does it work! Really, I haven't had cleaner teeth unless I went to the dentist for a cleaning. I really love this toothbrush!!

This is the third Sonicare I've bought over the years. I couldn't believe the value this particular one was when I purchased it. But, it works just as good as the one it replaced. Does a great job.

I received the Essence Sonicare last week. I let it charge for 48 hours. When I went to use it, the noise was so loud it not only hurt my ears, but it made me temporarily lose some of my hearing. Beside the item being ridiculously loud, the head continuously comes unscrewed. I have to keep tightening it during brushing. This definitely has to go back. My daughter and her husband use the easy clean, (or something with that name). They love it. I would have gotten that, but the price was way more than I believe it is worth. Think I will try oral B.

I bought this for my wife as her first sonicare. It is perfect for travel or as an entry level sonicare toothbrush. I would highly recommend this if you are new to electronic toothbrushes or if you want a nice sonicare.
