    I was abit Leary about trying out this product but now I will never use a regular toothbrush again. When I first used the soniccare brush I noticed the very fast vibration on my teeth and gums. There was a noise coming from it but that didn't bother me at all. The price was decent and the replacement toothbrush heads varied in price. Every 3 months the head needs to be changed. Im going to try a different head next time. I would recommended this product to anyone. I'm very pleased with my purchase. 5 stars.

    Improved Dental Health!

    I bought this because I'm always concerned about dental health. I have a permanent retainer at the bottom of my mouth so my dentist was concerned about plaque and gum health. After using this, my dentist noticed less plaque and better overall gum health. When I first started using it, I had some sensitivity because I wasn't used to an electric toothbrush. The sensitivity went away in a couple of days. Great deal because it was on sale AND there was a rebate. Highly recommended

    Great rechargeable toothbrush

    My dentist office recommend I invest in a water pick and a rechargeable toothbrush. I found this Philips Sonicare - Essence+ Sonic Electric Toothbrush at Best Buy because I buy most of my electronics from Best Buy and read the reviews on their website and base some final decisions on them or it just help confirm I made the right choice. For a handheld hand held toothbrush it is great and it really cleans your teeth better then conventional ones and it feels like I just came from having my teeth cleaned at the dentist.

    I used the Elite model previously which I had for many years. My teeth were so clean and I always had an easy cleaning at the dentist. This time at the dentist the hygienist noticed I had more calculus on my teeth. I told her that I've been using a new model of Sonicare. We agreed that it must be the toothbrush because I hadn't changed anything else. Now I am trying a longer brushing time to see if I can keep my teeth as clean as before.

    Should have bought this sooner!

    This is a first purchase of a Sonic Care toothbrush and I wished I would have bought this years ago. I am very impressed with this brush and for the price it is a great way to be introduced to the Sonic Care line of toothbrushes. Battery lasts a very long time, mine has been off the charger for 2 weeks now and is not slowing down. Great buy, great value, happy customer.

    I had never used an electric toothbrush before, always used a regular toothbrush. As I'm getting older, my dentist suggested to get an electric toothbrush and didn't want to spend a lot of money in case I didn't like it. So after reading up on Philips Sonicare I am pleased to say I really do like this one especially with the 2 minute shut off timer.

    Nice electronic toothbrush-moderately "powerful"

    This toothbrush is nice, but I have to say that it doesn't "feel" as powerful as some of the other Sonicare tooth brushes we have had over the years. This is a low price one, and probably a good value, but if you want a brush with a lot of power there are probably other models for you.

    I like this toothbrush. It was a good price compared to the others like it. I feel like it gets my teeth cleaner than a regular toothbrush. I have had some pain in my back teeth since using it. But I think my mouth is adjusting and getting used to it. I will be trying to find a different head to put on it. The one that came with it is tiny.

    Cleans well, easy to use

    This toothbrush is easy to use and the pop on/off brush head is easier to clean than their old screw-on style. Only negative is that it requires charging quicker than the 20 brushes advertised. I use the brush as they recommend -- for only the 2 min programmed - and needed to charge it after only 14 uses. Otherwise very good.

    This is really a nice rechargeable toothbrush for the money. The toothbrush vibrates very fast (no rotations) but feels great on the teeth and gums. This is the second one I purchased and I recommend one for the low price you have to pay.

    This was an upgrade from the previous model. Was looking for the old one and couldn't find it so I bought this. Turns out I like the design more. Great battery life, seems to have better resistance to moisture and mildew. I also love how I can get multi packs of brush heads. Great product and great value.

    This was my first electric toothbrush and I really like it! I can tell a huge difference in how much cleaner my teeth feel using this brush vs my old non-electric toothbrush. It was very reasonably priced and the battery stays charged for days (if you decide to leave it off the charging dock).

    The very soft brush head that came with it is too soft for me. Perhaps including a couple of extra heads in the package would be a good idea. I love the fact that it has a two minute timer. And small size base unit makes it easy to take it along when traveling.

    This is a really great entry level electronic toothbrush. The device really cleans teeth well, is comfortable to use, and feels like a quality product for the cost. The brush heads, on the other hand, are where Philips makes its money...they are not cheap at all.

    I was able to charge and then take advantage of the toothbrush and have not stopped using it since. My mouth feels fresher and I am able to reach areas that I did not realize that I was not reaching before. My gums especially have reaped the benefit of the automatic brush.

    This my third or fourth Sonicare toothbrush. It works well enough, I suppose. Doesn't feel as good in the hand, and didn't co!r with a travel case. Still, it's a good electric toothbrush, just an economy model.

    I love the tooth brush but it's a little expense to replace the tooth brush heads. best to catch on sale. over all I like it for the kids because once it turns off they know they did a great job brushing their teeth.

    I can't speak more highly about this toothbrush. After researching pricier models I ultimately decided to buy this one after reading the product reviews on various sites. Aside from my twice yearly dental cleanings, my teeth have never felt cleaner and looked whiter!

    My wife and daughter have bought these and I was curious for myself. It took some getting used to the vibration but it has worked great. I love the 30 sec timer to focus my brushing. I also like the variety of heads for different users.

    I love this toothbrush!!! It cleans very well and has a timing function that tells you when you've brushed well and enough in that area. The head of the toothbrush is functional to clean in those hard to reach places and the replacement heads are reasonably priced.
