I have always been a big fan of Sonicare toothbrushes. My old one finally gave up and I went with a regular toothbrush for a year or so. It really didn't do the job that well and I knew I needed to buy a new Sonicare but I didn't want to lay out the cash. But when I saw this deal, for 2 complete units for a pretty darn good price, I bit the bullet and got it. Couldn't be happier. My teeth feel so much cleaner after brushing, and my dentist loves the improvement in my gums. I gave the second unit to my daughter and she loves it too. At first, I was concerned that this model doesn't have all the bells and whistles of other models. But I have concluded those features are entirely unnecessary - they seem to be mostly timer gimmicks. All of the Sonicares work basically the same and this gets the job done quite well.

My dentist recommended this product to combat or eliminate plaque buildup and he does not recommend things lightly. I do not have enough experience (1 week) yet to evaluate that claim but will know in 6 months at my next checkup. It does seem to leave my teeth "squeaky clean" in a way conventional motorized brushes do not, much less regular hand brushes, so I am inclined to believe it is making a difference. One word of caution - the vibration rate is very high and if you are sensitive to vibrations touching your teeth (which can remind you of a dentist's drill) you may find this product disconcerting at first. I am still getting used to it and I am very sensitive to vibration, but the results seem to be worth it and I do not think it will take long to get used to. On the other hand, if I forget to turn the thing off before taking it out of my mouth I spray paint my bathroom mirror with Pepsodent, so be mindful, but again, no big deal. The product arrived on time and as advertised (I always and only order items qualifying for Amazon Prime because generally they do) and the fact that you get two complete units, an extra brush head and two travel cases for slightly more than the cost of one unit is great. Amazon rocks.

perfect amount of brushing power
good price
cleans really well

only two brushing modes (wish it had a tongue brushing mode like the old oral B I had)

For this price these brushes are the ones to get. I don't have any buyers remorse whatsoever - these things are far less expensive than a bad trip to the dentist!

We had Sonicare toothbrushes for several years, and had noticed that they seemed to not hold their charge quite as well as originally, but still worked very well. Unfortunately, I left mine behind during a recent trip...hense the reason for my purchase of the Sonicare toothbrush set. How I hated having to use a different kind of toothbrush, even though it was one of those battery-operated type that try to emulate Sonicare, though not even close.

If you've never brushed with a Sonicare, you've missed an incredible experience. Their action really makes your teeth and gums feels clean, fresh and invigorated. Also, my dental hygenist has remarked how she can tell the difference since I have been using a Sonicare toothbrush.

Yes, around $100 per toothbrush in some instances is fairly expensive. But you can find deals to get a pair of them for the same price...like I did. You will not be sorry, with the exception that you didn't buy one sooner!

My Dentist praised and promised me a Philips Sonicare, he raved on and on about how awesome and wonderful they were, not to mention totally great for one's teeth. Well, for a house holiday present for me and my partner I purchased (with wonderful Amazon.com excellent help and great pricing) a Philips Sonicare Essence Premium Edition Double-Set Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush (The set comes with 2 Charger Bases, 2 "Quadpacer" Handles and 3 Standard Brush Heads).

My whole head tingled after my very first brushing - it was everything my Dentist claimed, everything the advertisements claimed and frankly a whole lot more. Except for visits to the Dental Hygienist, nothing has ever made my teeth and mouth feel cleaner or fresher nor has anything ever been easier, just give the Philips Sonicare two minutes twice a days for cleaner, healthier and better looking teeth. We are are both total tooth care freaks and had very high expectations for the Philips Sonicare system, it surpassed those expectations in absolutely every way. We couldn't be any more pleased.

If you value your teeth and want them healthy, happy and great looking forever, this is a tiny investment to make for incredibly healthy, great feeling and good looking teeth.

Hurray for all the super-smart folks at Philips for this awesome invention and hurray for their totally awesome, completely wonderful Sonicare Essence Premium Edition Sonic Toothbrush system.

We were so pleased we've already ordered Philips' companion flosser and cannot wait for the package to arrive.

So, thank you Dr. Goldstein for the 4-1-1 and initial rave, Amazon for stocking such a terrific and totally first-rate item at such an affordable (everyone can have one) price and of course, huge thanks to Philips for sharing your hard work, research and amazing engineering skills with us ordinary folks.

Merry Christmas to all and to all, a great good night!

The price was right. I have seen two motors with only one charger, which is inconvenient. I did find this same set for $10 less but this one advertised that it included a toothbrush holder, WHICH IT DOES NOT. So I spent $10 for nothing. These models have various features and it is difficult to know exactly which features are on which unit. ie, some have a recharger light that indicates level of charge, but this one only shows if it needs recharging. A person really has to check out everything to be sure they are getting what they want and what they pay for.

The Philips Sonicare Essence is a great electronic toothbrush. My wife and I purchased this as a replacement for a prior sonicare product. I fried the base of our old brush outside the US and we needed a new brush. The Essence is a great product. It does everything our old brush did, and comes with two handles instead of the one we used to share (note: we had separate brush heads!).
We ended up getting the toothbrush at Costco as the Amazon market place vendor never sent us the brush. Once we filed a claim with Amazon they immediately refunded our money, which we used at Costco.

The toothbrush works as advertised, however the handle is a little large, which could make it a little unwieldy for people with smaller hands. Also the user must take care to rinse the entire tooth brush and dry it off prior to replacing it into receptacle/charging unit or it will leave a residue that builds up in the base of the charger which will inhibit it's charging ability.

We have had these brushes for a few months and are happy with the results. They do get a little gross inside the body of the toothbrush, but I imagine my mouth is pretty gross too. We just clean then out once a week and it's fine.

I get a little weirded out by the vibrations - but this is my first dip into the sonicare pool, so i am betting it's just an adjustment period.

I ordered these over a year ago and both are going strong. My significant other and I only use one base and switch back and forth who charges theirs over night. My teeth literally feel dentist-clean after brushing for two hours. (I sometimes skimp in a hurry and only brush for half a minute... does an alright job) Overall a great product when you are wide awake and tired!
