Summary: Thank goodness for the Walmart price. No way would I have paid MSRP for this product. The UV sanitizer makes the price almost worth it - I have well water. The compact head brush is still a little large for me. I have a hard time getting it angled correctly to do a good brushing job on all of my teeth. Oral B's round brush is a better fit. The time options (1 minute, 2 minute, 2 minute + massage) are a nice feature, but I wish it did't shut off automatically.
Summary: The toothbrush part of this worked fine but the UV unit had a problem. The cover over the light would not attach properly and the unit would not work - the light would start blinking when turned on and never stop blinking (it is supposed to stop after a couple minutes). I had to return it and get a unit with no UV sanitizer.
Summary: This product quit working after under 5 months of use. One day it started making a loud, scraping noise, the next day the head locked up and wouldn't vibrate. I changed heads and it still wouldn't work. The next day I tried it and it sounded even worse. Working on getting a refund....from someone.
Summary: I returned this product because I prefer the small round toothbrushes, not the larger one included in this product. I purchased a Braun at Walmart after I returned the above. This one I prefer.
Summary: This sonic toothbrush is very intense. A bit too intense for me. It's a very wierd feeling. I use it about once a week and other days I use my regular toothbrush. However, my husband loves it. I do like the fact that it sanitizes itself after use.
Summary: I bought one of these in 2007. It stopped working, with the same fault as many other people have had (no vibration from brush-head), in August 2008 and was replaced under the Amazon warranty. The replacement unit failed in the same way in October 2009. The Amazon warranty is only 1 year but Philips offer a 2 year warranty, it was replaced by them free of charge. You can find the details of who to contact on the Philips website. I hope this brush lasts longer than 1 year!
Summary: I have had various sonic tooth brushes over the years and I find this one seems less powerful and in turn clean your teeth less effectively. To some it up it is adequate. Considering the cost of this product I feel it should do its job somewhat better than adequately. I also had to get a replacement toothbrush as the first one I had broke after 3months!!
Super Putzergebnis, hohe Kosten, kurze Haltbarkeit

Summary: Das Gute vorweg: die Zahnbürste putzt sehr gut Vorher hatte ich eine Oral-B. Ein Unterschied wie Tag und Nacht! Nachteilig sind die hohen Anschaffungskosten. Die Bürstenaufsätze sind nur über das Internet zu bestellen und dazu noch recht teuer. Was mich aber am meisten ärgert ist, dass sich die Griffstücke (beide zeitgleich) beginnen aufzulösen. Es lösen sich Gummistückchen ständig beim Putzen ab. Dies hat übrigens genau nach der 2jährigen Garantiezeit angefangen.
Summary: Wirklich die beste Zahnbürste, die ich je hatte. Man muss sich anfangs etwas an die Schallzahnbürste gewöhnen. Jedoch wenn man sich daran gewöhnt hat, will man keine andere mehr. Das Putzergebnis ist nahezu perfekt und man fühlt sich fast wie nach einer Mundhygiene beim Zahnarzt. 2 Punkte Abzug für die Lebensdauer. Der Akku bzw die Bürste selber hat eine durchschnittliche Lebensdauer von 2 Jahren.
