Wow brilliant price thank you
lol was £110
Brilliant ordered two Thanks
Brilliant just ordered one for the hubby! Ta
I meant to post this deal as I ordered this yesterday.
It's a great price but paying the 'full price' for electric toothbrushes is like paying full price for a sofa at DFS
£110 really
Spare us from the "was" prices please - this is supposed to be a community, not a commercial break.
OralB suck once you've tried those Philips Sonicare

Hardly. Sonicare doesn't claim to remove any more plaque than Oral B, and its big problem is the head is larger so you're likely to miss bits.
Heat added!! Ordered!
Need a new electric toothbrush sinc3 my Philips do I care broke after 2 weeks.
Wasn't looking to spend more than 25 though any other good deals? Or is this worth the extra?
cheers op ordered. Can you use it for brushes also?
Thanks op. Just ordered. Was looking for a new one as the battery in my current was is not great.
Great price. I am buying one
I use the 2500. Brilliant toothbrushes. Well worth the money
Thank you just what i needed my battery has started to go on my 6000 but lasted well.
anyone actually know if the battery on these can be replaced and is cost effective to do so? thats the problem with two of mine... the older type was much better battery wise.
love it hot

That's the thing - built-in obsolescence. The battery never seems to last that long, and while they are forced to make it removable for recycling it just happens to render the device useless. It's a scam.

It will be if you're handy with a soldering iron an happy to dismantle it. You'll need to check exaclty which model you have, but this covers most of them: http://toothbrushbattery.com/guides/braun-oral-b-professional-care-1000-battery-replacement/
I replaced an oral b triumph battery last year, cost ~7 for the battery and it now lasts 2 weeks again instead of running out after 2 days. Be careful of the rubber top though, I split it slightly and it leaked, the result was at 1 in the morning the toothbrush started turning itself on. Easily fixed with a bit of flexible transparent rubber glue but means I won't be able to change the battery again.
£33.99 for a toothbrush. And this is a HotDeal?!
Good find - voted hot. Ignore the over inflated RRP prices.

Been looking out for a one of these with sensitive mode for a while but was put off by the price.
Don't need the over the top features such as wireless 2 minute timer or smartphone app so you can see how well you have been brushing over the past week

Any chance of sharing your experience ? Do you have any constructive comments as to why the Philips Sonicare is better ? Just asking as I have periodontitis and need to keep on top of my dental healthcare. Seems to me the advertised plaque removal is the same for both brands and is usually stated as "up to 100 % better plaque removal compared to a manual toothbrush".

Yeah - even these ordinary electric ones are of dubious benefit - I'm beginning to agree with the "Luddites" who make smart-**** comments about the price of a toothbrush whenever these are advertised.

As someone who has purchased A LOT of toothbrushes, I can say that the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean is by far the best one. Not to say Oral B isn't good, it's just that the diamonclean is better

Sonicare's have 5 different modes which are useful there's
1) Clean: the standard mode for a whole mouth clean
2) White: removes surface stains to whiten teeth
3) Polish: brightens and polishes teeth to bring out their natural brilliance
4) Gum Care: gently stimulates and massages gum
5) Sensitive: an extra-gentle mode for sensitive teeth

Now try and find a dentist who agrees with you. Not only does Sonicare not even claim to be better than Oral B, but I've never heard a dentist recommend one over the other, and in fact, as I've already said, they recommend ones with small heads.

Actually, funnily enough it was my dentist that told me about it. Not only that, but you can read the reviews for yourself rather than being so narrow-minded. I never said Oral B wasn't good - just than Diamondclean is better than this one

Thanks for the reply. The gum care and sensitive modes are the features I am interested in and it seems the Oral B 4500 has these modes. I don't think I will be able get a Sonicare equivalent at this price but I would love to test a Sonicare

To be honest I think dentists get a commission for promoting these brands so there may be an element of bias.
My dentists stated there is not much difference in the brands even though there was only one brand in the display cabinet.

Just interested to know in what respect is the Diamondclean better. I'm not interested in frilly features but If it does actually clean better I will defo buy one. After doing some research regarding clinical trials it seems the oscillating-rotating power toothbrushes are slightly better than the sonic variety.

To assess the evidence and come to a different conclusion to you is not being narrow-minded, it's being able to see through the enormous marketing machine that is constantly pumping these products.

Back in stock now.
I didn't realise a forum about electric toothbrushes would be so passionate and heated!

We have a Philips sonicare and three Oral B brushes in circulation in our house. Personally I slightly prefer the sonic, but the price of the replacement heads is ridiculous, so I will replace it with an Oral B when the battery eventually dies.

The Oral B toothbrushes are terrible for konking out minutes after the warranty expires though.
Thought I'd missed out but back in stock, ordered.
