Let me tell you first that this model is just GREAT. You definitely get what you pay for, and toothbrushes make no exception. I know it might seem a bit too expensive, but the features speak by themselves. 5 cleaning modes are enough to make this toothbrush a Must Have, and your dentist will see improvements in your oral care by the next visit. Or at least that's what happened to me (and my wife), after 2 months of use. I found this model at http://www.electrictoothbrushking.com/ and bought it a few days later after comparing the top models on the market- I decided to go for a high end brush, and this seemed great. And it is.
My 10-yr old Sonicare gave up the ghost and my dentist recommended one of the new Sonicares models -- this included all the features I was looking for (whitening cycle, DiamondClean brush and an astonishingly cute and handy USB powered travel case. This was, by far, the lowest price I found anywhere... and with my O-Club membership (which has paid for itself 10 times over this year) free shipping and 5% back. These are much easier to clean than my older model and the charger (glass or stand) is very slim and attractive. Oh, and it brushes my teeth very well too!
I've had all sorts of electric toothbrushes and I used to be "on the fence" when it came to brushing; sometimes I liked brushing, sometimes I didn't. This toothbrush CURED that problem. The Philips Sonic DiamondClean is the bomb! I LOVE it. And ... R U ready for this? It has five settings: Gum care, Sensitive, Clean, White, & Polish. OMG! Made my teeth LQQK gorgeous! Worth every penny!
This is the best toothbrush on the market. Or at least that is my opinion anyhow. I have used Sonicare brushes for over a decade now and I would never go back to an ordinary toothbrush. i would recommend this to anyone wanting to try a sonic brush. Even the less expensive models are just as great. I had just decided that it was time to purchase the King toothbrush. Tee hee. I am very satisfied with my purchase. Money well spent!!
