advertised here beginning july at 24.99 for the 8000 model.

Sainsbury's is selling the 8000 model at £21.24 and the 8500 model at £34.99 which according to many people isn't worth the price difference.

i was recommended the 8000 model by my dentist.

dont know when the deal ends but its online and in store


for replacement heads find the tesco deal (8 for £10)

I have the 8500 but the DLX version which came with a bundle of heads and a couple of other things.

The 'proper' price was over £90 but Sainsbury's supplied it for about £22 - 23 at the end of last year, so I bought some as presents too (which meant there was a charger matching mine at my relatives too ;-) ).

The battery has a longer life than the standard ones but does not look that much bigger - but seems to last twice as long on each charge.

It works really well - and does leave my teeth feeling far cleaner than the previous non oscillating back and forth rotary electric Braun ones I had been using for years.

The only problems with it are as follows.

1. The blue light when it charges is really annoying if you are in a hotel and its charging in your room where you sleep. Even on the floor at the edge of the bed it lights the room - so either charge it when you are out or sling something over it.

2. It really needs an overnight length charge - as an afternoon often will not last a full brushing session. Strangely the time it lasts on a short charge seems to vary massively. The first ever charge can take 30 - 50 hours.

3, There is nothing to indicate the power is running out - until the speed starts to slow - when you have about a minute left until it stops entirely.

So if you know its charged - or keep it on the charger - then its great. Otherwise you need to work round it.

Either way - for the smoothness you feel far faster on your teeth its HOT.

I should have added - the next best price from people who had stock was in the £40 - 50 range when I got mine last year.

Got the sonic one... and as I have no shaver socket in the bathroom, it charges in the bedroom, (not every day) and the flashing drives me mad if I don't put something in the way!

Does it use EU or UK plug?

I can't find a trace of any toothbrushes @ Sainsbury's

I'm looking for a 'proper' sonic one (use positive ions to lift off plaque etc..)-had them on bid-tv etc for about a tenner but cheapest i can find online, with a quick look, is about £55.

Confused...

Anybody in the know about such things-be grateful if you could give a few hints/share knowledge

hi the brauns are on half price promo at the min everywhere, just seen adverts on tv.

I don't know what tripe you have been listening to, but sonic brushes work by "cavitation," effect (although that is technically a bit over-rated, it only gives a slight effect!), as well as a fast vibration of the bristles (The main effect), just like a rotary brush as the ones in this deal.

Positive ions, eh? If that was where you heard about them, I think bid.tv are being a bit "generous" in their product descriptions. In fact, I would go as far as to say, after some of the things I have heard from salesmen on shopping channels, if they said rain was wet, I would probably put my hand out of the door to check! :-(

Had a Braun Oral B sonic for about 2 years now, and it is basically faster than the mechanical action, that's the most noticeable difference. I find it better than rotary, but not that dramatically better. Some people HATE the sensation, and never get used to it, and being a Brass musician I don't use it too soon before playing as it really ruins my embouchure for a while!

THIS article: dentistry.bham.ac.uk/den…pdf
actually suggests the best action of all powered brushes IS the 8000, rather than others, including a couple of sonic brushes, and they may well be right under the conditions they tested it in - but that is with a LOT of pressure and a LOT of toothpaste, and I find that the sonic needs MUCH less of both to work best!

European - in so much as it's a shaver type 2-pin plug.

I heartily recommend the 8000 series. I used to have the 7000 series which is essentially the same but lost it. So I replaced it with a non-professional "vitality" model and it was absolutely terrible - I'd rather use a manual.

So now I've got an 8000 and it's brilliant.

can some1 provide a direct link to this offer please

bought exactly the same thing about January time....we were well chuffed so bought two.....

Except that last week one of them just died on us completely.

As my previous braun had lasted about 7 years i just chucked the reciepts and boxes so theres not much we can do :-(

[FONT=Arial]I want one with a sub galatic hyperdrive and neutrino technology, do they have that on bid tv? :-p[/FONT]

I bought a Braun oralB 'vitality' sonic toothbrush for £12.75 (ish) from boots a couple of weeks ago - cheapest one i found - perhaps i should have put it as a deal. no idea how it compares to the 8000 or 8500? but it's a toothbrush and it works

it's rechargeable and one of the best toothbrushes i've ever had, although it did take a few days to get used to sonic part, but my teeth feel much cleaner than using the electric (mechanical) toothbrush

That won't be out until 2009. My local Sainsbury only has the flux capacitor enhanced models :-(

Contact Braun/Oral B as they come with a 2 or 3 year warranty and the 3 digit code on the bottom tells them the year and month of manufacture (or its sometimes inside the handle and they find it when you return it). I had to send one back a few years ago and I seem to remember it went to Gillette somewhere in Berkshire but try this Freephone number for starters 0800 731 1792 or 0800-783 7010 If you have no joy I'll try and dig out more info for you.

WOW - YOU'RE GOOD!! :thumbsup:

The plugs in these models are not EU, they are shorter, pins are bigger only looks like EU...
BTW, where to buy spare heads for this model?

They are designed to go into a shaver socket ONLY which is a different size to EU sockets. This stops people overloading shaver sockets by plugging other items into them. Replacement heads are available anywhere; tesco often do a good deal on them.

Excellent find ....
