    My wife is a dental hygienist and noted that, even though I was known to be a very good brusher, I still had build up of tartar, plaque and stain that she would have to scrape off every 6 months. I bought a 2 pack of these years ago someplace and now get great brushing reviews at every cleaning. I am a daily coffee drinker and the stains are no longer a problem. Tartar and plaque are near non existent. I'm on my 3rd one. I found you can get these to last 4 - 5 years. After the charge gets to where it only lasts for 4 or so days I keep it on the charger continuously and have been able to stretch it easily another year or so beyond that. You'll know when it's no longer able to hold a charge. That's the time to replace it if you're a value oriented guy like me. (although my wife just say's I'm "cheap").

    This toothbrush is excellent. I bought one from Best Buy last year and just bought two more from Best Buy to give as Christmas gifts this year. I always thought they pushed this toothbrush on me at the dentist to make money, but I finally decided to get one and boy does it work. My teeth feel much cleaner after brushing with Sonicare than with a manual brush. The price is right too. You can get it at almost any retailer but I choose BB because I get 5% off, free shipping, and can use rewards. I'm sure the higher end models of the Sonicare line may be even better than this one, but for the price, I think it's an excellent investment as oral health is of utmost importance.

    Wonderful but gets dirty underneath

    I've been using these Sonicare Essence toothbrushes for the past 10 years, and have loved how they leave my teeth so clean, but I don't love how they accumulate black stuff under the brush head if not cleaned regularly. Being screw-on, they're annoying to unscrew to dry out after every use. The snap-on brush heads stay cleaner from this perspective, but have other issues as well (see my review for the Series 2). Anyway, they all have the same 31,000 brush strokes per minute, which is the most important thing for breaking up plaque. Everything else is just cosmetic, so I just try to buy the most basic handle I need to save money.

    This is the fourth Sonicare I have bought and I generally have pleased with the product. I bought this particular model because I still have unused toothbrush heads (which aren't cheap). But Sonicare appears to want you to upgrade to their newer models and this one doesn't have the same features as previous ones. In particular, it doesn't have a 30 second timer which is helpful. You can get by without it, but it would be nice. Otherwise it does a good job. If you're a first time user, go for the newer models.

    I bought this electric toothbrush a few weeks ago and love it! I am at an age that my gums have started receding a bit and wanted something that would help keep them healthy. Well... Sonicare works! I didn't buy the most expensive Sonicare, if fact, Phillips Sonicare Essence was the least expensive of them all but it did everything it claimed to do and more. It gave me peace of mind that my teeth and gums will be healthy for years to come!!!

    Decent price for an electric toothbrush you will use every day. Sonicare is the recommended-by-dentists brand, and I have had several over the years. They are dependable and work very well. Although not as fancy with less features as other Sonicare models, I can't see spending $100 or more for a bells-and-whistles toothbrush, so those this model which is similar to those I have used in the past.

    Very good toothbrush

    The toothbrush together with the charging base take very little room on the counter. The light on the on/off button allows you to see if it's charging, and if it needs a charge. It would be nice if it had a travel case, but that would likely increase the cost and it does have a clear cover for the brush itself. Has very good cleaning capabilities too.

    I had no problem following the instructions for assembling and charging the toothbrush. As this was the first time I had used an electric toothbrush It was a bit of a challenge to learn how to operate it without spattering but I learned quickly! After several weeks of use I am appreciating how good my gums feel after brushing and look forward to using the appliance. Brushing my teeth is a lot more enjoyable than previously.
