First of all, my teeth have never felt this clean at home! Only after a dental appointment with all the gritty bits and water pistol rinsing and anxiety and mess. It's amazing! I even didn't brush this morning to see how long the feeling would last, and it's almost noon and still... smooth and clean!
I read through the manual (don't roll your eyes - I was looking for how the pressure sensor worked!) and it mentioned this toothbrush has an EasyStart mode that slowly increases the performance of the brush over the first 14 uses to get you accustomed to brushing.
So I'm thinking, "I'm a 30-something who's been brushing since I could stand. How seriously different can this be?"
I placed the brush against my back teeth like the manual recommended and then turned it on - WOW. I have never had a whole-head sensation like that before! It tickled and buzzed so hard, I started laughing and couldn't stop for the entire two minute brush timer. I missed three of the four "move to a new quadrant" beeps because every time I rearranged the brush, the tingling changed and sent me off into gales of laughter again. It wasn't just LOLing, y'all. My eye makeup was ruined, and I dribbled toothpaste all over the sink. My lazy little dog even came in to check on me. I had a full ab workout in two minutes.
I understand why they try to get you accustomed to it - this is quite the experience. I'm actually kinda looking forward to brushing my teeth again tonight.
Initial Review: We were disappointed with this unit. My wife and I have used Sonicares for almost 20 years, routinely buying mid-upper level models. When our most recent unit began to fail holding charges and started getting noisier in use, we decided to replace it with this less expensive model because we did not use the variable speeds and other amenities provided on the higher cost units. Carefully reviewing the full power/intensity description of this model in comparison to others, we found it was supposed to be equivalent.
From day one this unit was noisier in use than the others we have owned and it was noticeably weaker in power/intensity. Since we are accustomed to full power I thought during set up I had bypassed the new user break-in cycling that starts with low intensity and incrementally increases over a week or so.
I called Sonicare customer service who was courteous. We walked through their troubleshooting checklist that included bypassing the new user ramp up to full intensity. As I said above I thought I had set it up for full intensity but I had to admit to the CSR that the intensity seemed to improve/increase when we reset the bypass again and I tried it in my mouth for 10-15 seconds while he waited on the phone.
By the end of the next day the power/intensity went back to being 30-40% lower than we are used to with other Sonicares. Since this, and most models now use Lithium batteries I keep it on the charger when not in use. I also tried resetting the intensity adjustment multiple times over a couple weeks, and sometimes it almost seems like the strength increases slightly for 1/2 day. It never equalling our previous units. In general, the intensity strength of this unit Is so low that when you try to do the anterior surface of your side teeth/molars, the bristle vibration seems to almost stop.
Perhaps our unit is a fluke. Given the one year warranty, I will soon recontact their customer service to ask if we can exchange this one for another of the same model.
NOTE: When you buy replacement brush heads (this unit comes with only one), buy Phillips brush heads. Do NOT purchase the economy ones. They are poor quality, wear our quickly, and can actually damage your teeth and/or gums. Always buy the Phillips brand.

And this Amazon one looks amazing until I used it. That strange vibration came back as a nightmare! However, that was my first use of this one. Which means that Amazon sold me a second hand product! That is discussing! Be aware of what they send you!
