This is a great electric toothbrush. It’s been a long time since I’ve had one and I don’t think I’ll go back after using this. The toothbrush has 3 different modes and 3 intensity settings, along with a built-in pressure sensor to let you know if you’re brushing too hard. I didn’t notice a huge difference between the different modes, but the included brush head seems to made for the whitening mode. Each mode runs for a set amount of time and it’s nice to have that encouragement to brush until it stops running. I’ve been using it for a few days and it feels like I just came from a cleaning every time.
I only have a couple of small gripes, one being the intensity modes, which are great, but with the included head and toothpaste I use it literally vibrates the toothpaste off if I start on the highest intensity mode. It’s only slightly annoying and I just have to make sure I start at the lowest setting and increment it up once I start brushing. The other is the replacement brush heads do seem a little expensive, at least compared to regular toohbrushes. There’s a brush head replacement indicator light on the toothbrush, but I don’t know how long the heads are supposed to last between replacements; hopefully at least a month or two. These two things don’t really affect my overall feeling that this is a really good toothbrush and the job it does make it and the replacements head well worth the investment.
Got this to replace an old Oral-B I had been using. I've had the Oral-B for about 4 years but it was slowly dying and in need of replacement. I've heard that the Sonicare are better and clean better than Oral-B's. After using it a couple times, it definitely feels like it cleans better so no questions there. Brush heads are a bit pricey however i'm sure you can find deals for them online somewhere. You get basically all you need to start off with. The carrying case is nice; much better than my older one. You get one brush head and wall charger as well. Hoping this Sonicare lasts for awhile.
Choosing a new electric toothbrush can be confusing. There are tons of options and price ranges, some offering features that you might never need. With the ProtectiveClean 6100, Philips has struck a great balance of performance and value.
- Simple packaging and easy assembly. Just slide the brush head onto the body and you're ready to go. My toothbrush arrived fully charged.
- Lightweight, ergonomic handle. I was worried this might be heavy, but it's not. It's very comfortable to hold for the entire 2-minute brushing period.
- Excellent brushing performance. There are three levels of brushing intensity that can be adjusted with a button on the handle. I've been using the medium setting and I love the way my teeth feel after each use. You know that squeaky-clean feeling your teeth have after going to the dentist? This toothbrush can give you that feeling every day!
- The toothbrush will beep and vibrate while you're brushing to tell you to move to another quadrant of your mouth. It's a useful reminder so you don't over-brush one area of your mouth.
- If you apply too much pressure to your teeth, the toothbrush will also beep/vibrate so you don't damage your gums.
- Only one brush head is included. For the price, I wish Philips would have included at least 2 brush heads. They aren't cheap, either, so be prepared to shop for deals on replacement brush heads.
- If your bathroom does not have a power outlet in the perfect place, you might have a hard time keeping the charging base plugged in all the time. The cord is rather long and difficult to hide.
- The product listing says that the toothbrush is supposed to come with a travel case, but my box did not have one. If you purchase this in-store, make sure the box says it includes a travel case. My box makes no mention of it and the model number is slightly different than the one listed here. My box says model number HX6877/48, which apparently does not include a travel case. If you want the case, make sure you get model HX6877/21.
This is an excellent, no-gimmicks electric toothbrush. The price is just right and the features included are simple and useful. Highly recommended!
Bought it for myself and Girlfriend, philips aways making good product!

Excellent toothbrush for the money
Great toothbrush. Really cleans the tooth very well leaves your mouth feeling nice and clean. My dentist was surprised with how little calculus I had on my teeth when they did their annual. I told them I brush 3x per day with high flouride toothpaste and a ProtectiveClean 6100. He said well that'll do it!..
This toothbrush uses sonic movement to get all the calculus, tartar, plaque and everything off your tooth at a rate of 62, 000 per minute. Your oral health will become dramatically better if you incorporate a Sonicare toothbrush to your oral hygeine routine. My gums aren't as receded as they were when I used Oral B Genius 8000, and my mouth feels more clean and overall its much better. I also like how quiet it is compared to oral B.
My dentist told me both oral B and Sonicare tooth rushes are excellent. She said it really boils down to personal preference, whether you prefer mechanical over sonic, whether you have sensitive gums, whether you have dental issues. Those variables can change what brush would be reccomended.
This toothpaste feels good in the hand, has 3 different brush modes and 3 intensity levels that can be changed to suit your needs.
Every 3 months or so the brush light at the bottom of the unit will flash - that means it's time to refill your heads. And they don't come cheap, 35 dollars for 3 replacement heads approximately. Get them on a deal if you can. Pretty sure once the head indicator goes off it won't work unless you replace the head but I don't know for sure. Wouldn't surprise me
This brush is very easy to use and leaves my mouth feeling clean. It also had the ability to help you brush more efficiently. It will beep when you should switch to a new section of your teeth. It's not a loud annoying beep either, very subtle. My dentist also recommended I switch to a modern electric toothbrush, since I tend to press really hard when I brush. This helps me with that as well. It will pulse when I'm applying too much pressure. It is also much quieter than other electric toothbrushes I've heard in the past.
Pros: easy to use, quiet, pressure warning, audible sound when to switch teeth, nice charging stand
Cons: I wish it had come with some of the other brushes to try
