Summary: I wouldn't recommend this item other than it's usefulness as a sanitiser. After exactly 13 months of use, the spindle snapped inside the unit, rendering the brush useless. It was out of warranty so there was nothing I could do to get it replaced.
Good performance but disappointing quality at high cost

Summary: I have had sonicare for many years. FlexCare is the nicest design in terms of ergonomics, and the heads are not too expensive to replace. However, I am bitterly disappointed with the quality of construction and design.
Summary: Toothbruxh head fell off numerous times, while trying to brush teeth(really irritating). Great at first, but after 2 weeks kept falling off. Not worth the hassle. Got a very good service of Amazon though. Getting a refund.
Summary: We had two of these, and for the first year they were excellent toothbrushes, very powerful and teeth really were whiter. However, first sonicare packed up after 14 months and the second after 20 months. Both were repaired under warranty.
Summary: Bought this product in Nov 2008 and started using it December. It lasted 8 months before the brushhead stopped working. It made a loud noise one morning and then when I used it that evening it didn't seem to be cleaning. The next morning it stopped altogether and now doesn't work at all.
Summary: To start off, yes I did love this toothbrush. After using it, my teeth looked and felt cleaner. The UV sanitizer is also very handy. However, there is a very big but. Similar to some problems already reported, the brush simply dies after about 3 months of use.
Summary: Was initially impressed after getting as a replacement for the Braun equivalent BUT it is unreliable. The charger failed after two months and the brush head unit has now failed after 4 months. It still makes a noise but no vibrations come out of of the head. Expected better given high initial price.

Summary: Ich habe im Oktober 2013 auf Anraten meines Zahnarztes eine Philips Sonicare gekauft. Da mir in den letzten Tagen zahlreiche Berichte über den mangelnden Qualitätsstandard dieser Zahnbürste aufgefallen sind, ist mir die Verlängerung der Garantie auf 3 Jahre aufgefallen.
