    I really like how it automatically starts in the last mode you used. I also like the gum mode. It has 4 30 second timings and then 4 15 seconds ones.

    Just the Right Amount of Options

    This is my third Philips Sonicare toothbrush over the years, and so far it's my favorite. It has just the right amount of options (I don't need my toothbrush to connect to a smartphone app), but enjoy being able to choose between different modes depending on how my mouth and teeth look and feel. The whitening mode is my go to, as it really does keep surface stains from building up. I use the standard cleaning mode on the highest intensity every other day to get a deep clean in. Haven't really found much use or enjoyed the gum massaging mode, but it's an option for those of you who might be in need of that. This is the first Sonicare toothbrush I've had that keeps track of how long you've been using the brush head, which is great for those of us who have too many other things going on in life to keep track of when to replace our toothbrush. Very useful. All in all, this is the "sweet spot" across all of the models they offer, I feel.

    I'm a dedicated Sonicate customer. I've used their product line for years and this is by far my favorite toothbrush. There is a noticable difference between the three cleaning modes and the indicator lights are nice and bright. The carrying case is sturdy and it holds a charge for much longer than the anticipated/indicated 2 week timeframe.

    Efficient, and Leaves Teeth Feeling Clean!

    My experience with power toothbrushes is limited to just this one, but the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100 is a great device. I prefer now using a power toothbrush over a manual, and so I expect my experience to grow in time. In the box, you get a charging base, the toothbrush handle, a cap, and a W DiamondClean brush head. The ProtectiveClean 6100 is designed to detect which type of brush head is attached via a microchip in the brush head that communicates with the handle. The handle automatically selects the suggested mode and intensity levels, so it's ready to go without needing to manually change any settings. With that said, the toothbrush should already have some charge in it for a quick start. All you need to do is attach the brush head, which is very easy to do, and press the power button. If you prefer a more control, you can change the mode and intensity yourself with a few button presses on the front. The box claims that the ProtectiveClean 6100 is capable of 31,000 brush strokes per minute. I don't know if this is true, but based on how clean my teeth feel and look after brushing, I don't worry about that number so much. What's great is that you don't need to apply a lot of pressure, and if you do, the vibration of the handle will change to alert you that you're using too much pressure, as it can sense this. I haven't fully tested the white mode or gum care modes, and so I cannot review much of that. I can say that they don't feel much different than the standard clean mode. The manual makes mention of optimal brush heads for each mode if you'd like to be thorough as possible when cleaning your teeth or gums. One feature that I'm still unsure of is the quadpacer. The timer built into the handle has a short beep and pause to let you know when you should begin a new section of your mouth. The cleaning mode lasts for two minutes before turning off. Though it's just a reminder, I often feel rushed and as if 30 seconds per quad isn't long enough, so I usually restart the toothbrush once it shuts off. Unlike the other features built into the ProtectiveClean 6100, this feature cannot be deactivated. This is probably my only real qualm with the product. Just like manual toothbrushes can wear over time and need replacing, so do the brush heads. The handle tells you when it's time to replace your brush head, which is very convenient. I haven't had to replace mine yet, so I can't comment on how long a brush head typically lasts. Overall, I really like this power toothbrush. I haven't gone back to a manual toothbrush and have no plans doing so. I love how clean my teeth look and feel after every use. My dental hygienist has a Sonicare product, and that says a bit, too.

    The New Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100 is FANTASTIC

    I've owned a few Sonicare electric toothbrushes over the years, going back to one of their first models. In truth, I've liked them all, with each "replacement" being better than the previous unit. Most recently, I've been using the HX6750.until I received the new HX685T (aka 6100). In so many ways, it's a LOT better.although, in one particular way, it's somewhat worse. Starting with what makes the HX685T/6100 better, the most important factors are the adjustable modes, as well as the adjustable intensity levels. Both models provide a feature for those new to electric toothbrushes, but whereas said mode is turned 'on' by default in the HX6750, it's 'off' by default on the 6100. Personally, I believe defaulting to 'off' is better, as most people would probably dislike having to turn this feature off every time they get a new Sonicare. Getting back to the new features, there are three brushing "modes": Clean, White, & Gum Care. "Clean" is the standard mode, which has been around for years, providing 2 minutes of "Quadpacer" brushing. "White" provides 2.5 minutes of brushing time (again, using "Quadpacer" timing), with the first two minutes moving the brush head in a different 'pattern' (to assist in removing stains), followed by the last 30 seconds in "Clean" mode. Finally, the "Gum Care" mode provides 3 minutes of brush time (I'm assuming, as I'ven't tried it yet, it also utilizes "Quadpacer" timing). As for the "Intensity" levels, it offers low, medium, and high. While the intensity levels can be changed while brushing, the mode must be selected prior to turning on the toothbrush. Another new addition is the inclusion of Sonicare's "BrushSync" technology. Inside the base of the toothbrush head, a microchip has been imbedded. This allows two features to work. The first, Smart Replacement, is just what it sounds like.a notification of when it's time to replace your head. Thisn'tification isn't based purely on some pre-programmed period of time, but is determined by how often you brush, the length of time you brush each time you brush, and the type of head you're using. Speaking of toothbrush head type, that brings up the microchips second feature, that being Smart Pairing. With previous electric toothbrushes, you typically had two types (soft & hard), with two length options (short & long). When it comes to Smart Pairing, there are (currently) seven options, broken into three "categories": Premium, Optimal, & Specialty. I won't give complete info on each head, but I will mention that the "Premium" line includes "Plaque Control (C3), Gum Care (G3), & White (W3), the "Specialty" line includes DiamondClean (W) & InterCare (I), and the "Optimal" line includes Plaque Control (G2) & Gum Care (C2). Based on their numbering system (current choices include '2' and '3'), it's safe to assume that there could very well be a forthcoming line with '1' in the numbering system.but that's just my guess. Quickly back to those imbedded microchips, they inform the toothbrush handle which head was inserted, and it automatically adjusts the "mode" & "intensity" to match the particular head. Of course, as with all heads (including those without embedded microchips, as they ARE still compatible with the 6100), you can adjust the "mode" & "intensity" to your liking/preference. Final thoughts: While I'ven't been using the Sonicare 6100 long enough to drain the battery, but I'd assume that it would last at least as long as any previous Sonicare model. Beyond that, I'm loving the new model. As great as the inclusion of different "modes" is, I'm thinking a lot of people will find the "intensity" levels more useful. Normally, one would stick to 'high', but, for those with occasionally sensitive teeth, being able to lower the intensity to 'medium', and even 'low' will be a HUGE benefit. I've been recommending Sonicare toothbrushes to people for many years now (even got my wife to switch from a "regular" toothbrush, to Sonicare), I'd, most definitely, recommend the 6100, as well as any other Sonicare models including all these new features/functions. Some people complain about the high cost of electric toothbrushes, not to mention the higher-than-average cost of their replacement heads, but, let me ask you a question - HOW important is having good teeth to you? If you don't care about your teeth, then you might as well stop taking care of them.stop brushing and stop flossing. On the other hand, if your teeth are important enough to you to seriously take care of, then spending some extra money on them is WELL worth it. Besides, after spending the thousands of dollars already spent on them (braces, crowns, bridges, fillings, etc), don't you WANT to take great care of what you've spent your hard-earned money on? Do yourself a favor - get an electric toothbrush. And, if you want one that has been PROVEN to be "better", get a Sonicare.better yet, get the 6100. Disclaimer: This product was provided free, or at reduced cost, for the purpose of reviewing the product. Nevertheless, the above review, be it positive, negative, or somewhere in-between, is a 100% honest review, and the price paid played absolutely no part in my review.

    a massage for the mouth!

    Once you use this brush for the first time, you will realize just how worth it it's. In fact I joked after my first use that my mouth just received a massage. I noticed after my very first use and continue to notice, that my mouth felt cleaner after the two minute timer than my mouth does after my usual 3+ minutes with my manual toothbrush or my knockoff $20 "sonic" toothbrush. That brings me to my next point, any electronic toothbrush I've used up to this point has been powered by a battery that needed to be replaced which came with a whole slew of problems like it dying quickly, having to tap the base on the counter a certain way to get the battery to sit better and have a connection, having to keep a seal clean so water does not get near the battery, I could keep going, but those days are long gone with this unit! It makes life so much easier to have this sealed unit that tells you when it needs a charge boost, never cuts out due to the battery not sitting right, it's just amazing, it seems small but it's just one less little frustration to have during the day. The brush's different modes are easy to figure out as well as the intensity adjustment within the first minute of taking it out of the box, but it does come with a quick startup guide, and for those that like to read even more, a more detailed booklet that does give useful information is also in the box. It is also nice that this unit comes with a travel case as I noticed it's pretty large, especially lengthwise, compared to a traditional brush. My only minor complaint is that the brush head that it comes with is fairly small, I've gotten use to the small size but I still would prefer a larger bristle area. But I do see that there are several different sized brush head replacement options so that really is a minor complaint, the overall unit itself is great. This particular models technology and features are not so ridiculous and over the top, it's just enough to make your day to day life easier and even more enjoyable. I really recommend it.

    I like this tooth brush. First use I was surprised on how powerful it is, felt like I was at the dentist getting a teeth cleaning. You can adjust the intensity on it 3 levels. I had it on the highest. I prefer the second level. I like the different modes, cleaning, whitening, and gum care. The brush head is replaceable and the tooth brush won'tify you when it ready to be replaced. I like that it will shut off by itself after use. It comes pre-charged so you can use it straight out if the box. The charge base is minimal so it won't take up much space on your counter. I am glad I have this tooth brush a great buy.

    Excellent Toothbrush

    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.

    Great teeth cleaning, skimps on extras

    Pro -Excellent cleaning -Long battery, over two weeks between charges -Lots of different head options -Multiple modes and intensities Con -Comes with only one head -Heads are expensive, but that goes for all electric toothbrushes -No travel case ( at least not my package ) -Charging base could be better Overall The Sonicare 6100 does an excellent job in cleaning your teeth. Really gets in the nooks between and almost makes you feel like you don't need to floss. The toothbrush has various modes for cleaning, whitening, and plaque removal. You can select modes manually, but the handle will also automatically switch depending on what kind of brush head you use. The handle also has an internal timer that buzzes every 30 seconds so you can make sure you brush long enough and spend an equal amount of time on each section of your teeth. The battery lasts for a long time between charges ( so far I've gone over two weeks without recharging yet ). Overall, the cleaning performance is quite good. The downsides are more what you don't get in the box. My particular box didn't come with a travel case, though some models do. It also only comes with one brush head, which is disappointing. The charging base is very small, which might be nice for portability, but is not all that useful on the bathroom countertop. It would have been nice if it had slots to hold extra brush heads or something.

    ProtectiveClean 6100 Rechargeable Toothbrush Included- Handle, Smart brush head, travel cap, Charging base, instructions, and 2 year warranty. This new Sonicare toothbrush looks clean and sleek. The toothbrush is super smart. It will custom clean your teeth depending on what settings you choose. There are 3 cleaning modes- clean, white and gum care. There are also 3 different intensity settings- low, medium, high. It has the technology to tell you when to replace your brush head, notify you when you are brushing too hard and need to reduce the pressure, and has a timer that beeps every 30 seconds to help you brush all four areas of your mouth. This brush has pretty much every smart option available without having to use the Sonicare app with their Smart toothbrush. I actually prefer this one because of that. I don't want to have to rely on the app to see my brushing results and have it work to it's fullest ability if it's paired with the phone. I like that this Sonicare offers me all the settings on it's own. It's not complicated. I can have the cleanest teeth and all the cleaning options.

    I've never actually owned or thought about owning an electric toothbrush. However, my dentist has been recommending that I get one for several years now so here we are. It was very easy to assemble and comes charged out of the box. The first time I used it I didn't realize I had it on the highest intensity setting and I almost wrote it off because it was a bit much for me. I turned it down to the lowest intensity mode will gradually bump it up to the higher modes as needed. My dentist told me to hold the brush on each area for about 1-2 seconds then move onto the next. There is a timer built-in that will alert you subtly to move to the next quadrant of your mouth. You don't scrub your teeth like you would with a normal toothbrush. After each brush I can't help but notice how clean my teeth feel. I can't think of any reason why you wouldn't want to use this everyday except for the fact that it does not come with a travel case. One more tip, use a small amount of toothpaste and put the brush into your mouth prior to turning it on or else you might send toothpaste flying. =) Pros: Simple to use Timer to help you brush for recommended amount of time Charged out of the box Clean, Whiten, and Gum Care modes Brushhead Replacement Indicator Compact Charger Cons: Takes a few days to get used to. No travel case - only a small cap for brushehead

    Great upgrade from Oral B

    • My Best Buy® Member

    I've used Oral B toothbrushes for several years prior to getting this Sonicare 6100 Protective Care toothbrush. In my opinion, the Oral B small round toothbrush heads perform better when you focus on each tooth. Even then, I had a couple spots that didn't feel as clean as they should have been, even after switching to a brand new brush head. But I had no problems from my dentist. I've read reviews of earlier Sonicare models where people have been quite disgusted when they finally clean their brush head. The Sonicare new brush heads are much easier to clean and much easier to keep clean. So I'm thankful for that design change. To me, the Sonicare'diamond' shaped brush head allows me to brush my teeth more like a manual toothbrush. That's supported by Sonicare's definition of a quadrant. Oral B's quandrant system is: bottom right, bottom left, top right, top left. Which is fine for such a small brush head. Sonicare's is: bottom inside, bottom outside, top inside, top outside. When I'm brushing my teeth with a manual toothbrush, It's done more like Sonicare's definition. In terms of cleaning power, I think the Sonicare 6100 has my Oral B model beat quite soundly. Admittedly, I've a cheaper Oral B model. I think its rated rotational count is somewhere below 8,000 oscillations per minute. The Sonicare 6100 has a whopping 31,000 pulses per minute. It takes a little getting used to the frequency change, but even after the first brushing session, the trouble spots I mentioned earlier were gone. Other features include: 2 minute timer (which turns off the brush, instead of Oral B's momentary stutter pulse), quad pacer where the brushing action pauses for a second to help you brush each quadrant of your mouth. 3 intensity settings, and 3 brushing modes (clean, white, gum care). The handle of the Sonicare is pretty sleek. It has a very fine matted texture. There is no other texture nor contours to help you grip the handle. Which is unfortunate because it's used in a wet environment so slipping is of concern. I also like that the indicator lights are very small. My Oral B indicator lights are large and pulse while recharging and it's quite annoying when I can see the pulsing light reflecting from my bathroom area. I'm disappointed that the cost of the brush heads increases as I switch to the Sonicare line. To be honest, I couldn't tell the difference between the 3 brushing modes. I was expecting a different intensity between clean and gum care modes. After reading the instruction booklet, it seems these modes are paired best with different brush heads. To clarify, by pairing, I refer to the BrushSync feature where certain brush heads have an RFID chip added where the handle will pair and flip to the optimal mode for the attached brush head. I couldn't test that out with the single brush head that was included. I'm not sure I want to flip between different brush heads during my brushing sessions. I find the Brushsync feature rather gimmicky and it's not something I would seek out in my next electric toothbrush. I also found that the Sonicare gets a little messier while brushing. If I happen to hit a pocket of saliva, the Sonicare will spray it more so than the manual or Oral B brushes. Some of this could be resolved by changing some brushing habits. I'm really glad to have made the change to the Sonicare line. I hope that it continues to perform well for several years.

    Great Toothbrush, Questionable 'Upgrades'

    Posted

    • Top 100 ContributorTop 100 Contributor

    I've been a long-time Philips Sonicare customer and I love their products. They last a very long time and do a great job at what they are intended to do. In addition to getting the ProtectiveClean 6100 to replace my previous Sonicare toothbrush I also purchased their Sonicare AirFloss Ultra. It may sound like I've issues but I just recently had an implant put in and it is a bit more complicated to take care of than I was led to believe. That being said, I do take care of my teeth very well and in my 40+ years of having teeth not a single one has ever had a cavity (humblebrag over). If you have ever used a Sonicare toothbrush or any of the other kinds of electronic toothbrushes, you will be well acquainted with how this one works. If you like you can go straight out of the box, put on some toothpaste, shove it in your mouth, hit power and clean away. The modes and intensities too me have always felt a bit too'subtle'. I can tell it changes things up a bit but not enough to really change my experience. One of the benefits of the 6100 series is that the brush can now use some new brush heads with an integrated RFID chip that will set the brush to the optimal mode for brushing. I didn't notice this 'benefit' until after I had opened everything up and started reading the instruction booklet, but if I had noticed it I would have been wary assuming that this brush could only use these new fangled (and probably more expensive brush heads). To my pleasant surprise, I found that the old style brush heads fit/work just fine, which is good because I've a pack of them that I just recently purchased. A lot of times a company will make these upgrades to lock you in to more expensive and proprietary parts but Philips in this case is just giving you the option. That being said the RFID also syncs with the brush head to let you know when to change it out, though I've never really had a problem figuring that out and I'm sure that timetable is skewed to Philips' favor. My only real gripe about this RFID upgrade is that when you read the instructions is would seem that every style of brush head gets the same setting of level three intensity, it just changes the mode depending on the brush head type from the normal clean, to whitening, to gum care. All of these modes are really just set timings. The quadpacer feature gives you a cue to move to another quadrant of your mouth every 30 seconds for a full 2-minute routine, that is the normal clean mode. For white mode, it just adds 30 seconds to the end to polish up your front teeth some more, and in gum care mode it gives you a minute extra to use the brush to massage your gums. Great if you follow the quadpacer timings, but I'm pretty sure I've got this brushing thing down by now. One of the upgrades I did see that I was interested in and made me want this particular model was the pressure sensor to prevent you from beating up your teeth and gums. I've never been an overly aggressive brusher (my wife on the other hand absolutely destroys toothbrushes), but the dentist told me to be a little more careful than usual with the implant so I thought this might be a useful feature. It would be a useful feature if it didn't take an immense amount of pressure for the toothbrush to warn you. I've never brushed that hard in my life. I even had my wife put on her brush head to try it out and she even had to press harder than she normally does to get it to go off and like I said, she routinely gets yelled at by her dentist for her aggressive brushing. Perhaps I should talk to her... maybe she is taking out her pent up rage with me on her teeth. Oh well, that feature is pretty much useless. Here are just a few more likes/dislikes of this toothbrush from a longtime Sonicare toothbrush user: - Love that Philips has stuck with the same inductive charging base so I can use the UV disinfecting base that came with my previous brush or any of the other multitude of charge bases that I've. I also uses the same base as the AirFloss so I only have to take one with me on vacation (though charges usually last me a really long time - much longer than the 2 weeks that Philips states). - Love the new look of the brush, nice sleek and satiny. - Hate that that the new sleek and satiny finish is super slick and has fallen out of my hand twice already onto the floor (thank goodness for UV disinfection). The previous brushes had a rubber like back to them that was sticky enough to help you hold the brush. While I'm sure I'll adjust, it is annoying. That's it for the review, if you are a longtime Sonicare user or a first-timer, you will be very happy with this brush. It does its job, it does it well, and if my previous toothbrushes are any indication, it will do it for many years.

    My first electronic toothbrush

    This is my first electric toothbrush and I'm liking it so far. Having the three power settings is nice because at first the lowest setting was about all I could stand. It seems to be pretty powerful. After a couple of days, though, I moved up to the next setting and am getting used to that. The only downside I'ven'ticed so far is the cost of replacement heads. However, if it gets your teeth as much cleaner as they say then it's worth it to me. The weight and balance of the brush is just right so it's easy hold on to and maneuver around while brushing. The charging stand is sealed from water, is heavy enough it stays in place, and works very well to hold the brush when not in use. This model has three different modes (clean, white, and gum care) as well as the three different power levels for each. The brush does give you feedback if you're pushing too hard, although so far I'ven't found myself doing that very often. The special sync heads are supposed to let the tool adjust correctly for the brush type, and it also keeps track of the usage so it'll remind you when to replace the head. If, like me, you plan to order more brush heads and switch off with your spouse then that will probably confuse the usage tracking. However, the brushes do still have the "reminder bristles" that fade with use so you can tell when to replace that way as well. This is a solid toothbrush that's fun to use and seems to get my teeth very clean. Time will tell if it's significantly better than brushing the old fashioned way.

    I would recommend this to a friend
