Are you sure?

I have not seen it below this price.

And at £59.99 its the lowest price around and a total bargain
How does this compare with the Lidl one?
If this toothbrush takes the same heads as mine which only cost £20, how is this one any better at actually cleaning teeth? Serious question.
Yeah. This was £50 on Prime Day. Good deal though.
If you want to spend £50+ then you are much better off buying Philips Sonicare models (£50+).
Much better performance than these rotary models + MUCH better battery charge time than Oral-B.
Oral-B battery life is shockingly awful,and take 2 Days to fully charge.
Sonicare midrange-high end models last 3 weeks charge and only around 4 hours to fully charge.
they clean much better too.

Sorry but I found absolutely the reverse. After using a braun oral-b for a few years it broke. Since starting to use it cavities had stopped being a problem. We bought a top end sonicare and used it as per instructions but after a year of that I was back to dental cavities and fillings. Also the hygienist had to remove more plaque. So it went the journey and we got new brauns - next dentist visit no cavities, and in the last 5 years only one. The hygienist always comments on how little plaque I now have. This is merely with the braun soft head, no fancy settings. I agree that the new brauns only advertise 7 days battery and that is far worse than my old one which gets between two and three weeks.

I also disagree, I have had both brushes and for me the Oral B was far better.
I agree with you that the battery life and charging is terrible, but the cleaning is better and the brush heads are much cheaper.

Opinions are like hearts, we all have one.

My dentist and hygenist disagree with your view - Braun OralB (3D versions) every time.

However, you don't need this one with pointless 'extra' features. The 600 model, often available under £20, is the value sweet spot in the range.

Another who disagrees with you, oral b are much better brushes, takes less than than 24 hours to fully charge and not the two days you mentioned, battery life is excellent.
Waiting for the 9000 version to drop in price

For some reason CCC doesn't show the prime day prices - it was £50 IIRC.

Yeh - I find this really annoying - they need to do something about it. This has caught me out several times now over the last few weeks on various purchases. It doesn't make sense why these prices are never included - really misleading as most people don't question the prices they see on CCC.
My hygienist said I should keep my Sonicare, but given the amount of gunk she removed last time and the fact the heads are over £20 a pack (it's an older e-series) I'm thinking of changing. So which is best?
Hang on - didn't realise this was an old discontinued model? Noticed online it says this has been replaced with the newer model Oral-B Smart 6 which has an improved battery (Lithium-ion) - apparently this one has a crap battery and that one doesn't. The reviews on Amazon regarding the battery are horrendous - some people are saying it takes 3 days to charge the battery and theirs only lasts less than two and half mins on a full charge lol. How long is the warranty on the battery? Also - I noticed a lot of people who bought them switch off the bluetooth to make their battery last longer in between charges. If you don't use the bluetooth is this toothbrush actually any better than the cheaper models below it?

Just a basic Oral B thing, nothing jazzy, gets the job done though. There is no model number on it so can't give you any other info other than I bought it from my local Tesco store (Park Rd, Loughborough).
Hope that helps.

Depends in dentist and hygienist personal opinion..
I've read about the exact opposite opinions from dentists.

Even if we assume both are similar in cleaning performance,Sonicares generally have superior batter life and superior charge time.

I have both Oral-B Pro 3000 and Sonicare 6511,Oral-B takes near 48 hours to charge fully,and looses charge in 3-4 days (motor also becomes slower day after day which means cleaning is also affected).
whereas with Sonicare full charge takes around 4-5 hours and it lasts 2-3 weeks.

Oral-B didhuge marketing specially in this country and because they have cheaper version compared to Sonicare they have a bigger market,that's all.

I have 2x Oral-B 600 (3D cleaning) at under £20 each (one was £15!). Charge lasts a week at 2x2 min uses per day, then I swop with the one on standby on charger. I think the cleaning performance is the more important point and the Oral-B definitely wins there (provided it's 3D type - avoid the very basic ones). No need for the more expensive ones like this one though as they just have added gimmicks which are not needed.

When I researched toothbrushes about 2 years ago, I discovered some of the cheaper models operate at a lower number of RPM than the higher models. This is something to watch out for. I don't know if it's still the case.

Came here to comment that I bought this brush 2 years ago.

The battery is now abysmal on the thing. I agree with the sentiments above: it takes ages to charge, and discharges very rapidly. This wouldn't be a problem, but as the battery discharges the power of the brush also reduces thereby giving a lower number of RPM and a rather unsatisfying clean. I now charge it every day to maintain power. I suppose I better get round to replacing it...

I understand that the use of lithium batteries in the Oral-B 9000 resolves this issue - but because of that I wouldn't buy any model now other than the 9000! (Currently £140 on Amazon)

On the plus side - the travel case is very handy.
The Bluetooth feature is useless (and a battery drain no doubt?).
The portable brushing timer is novel at first (the little face is entertaining), but it soon gets old (particularly as the handle itself has a built in vibration based timer). Mine is in the bin.
And I don't even like the "brush storage compartment" accessory (also in the bin), as I would personally rather leave new brushes sealed in their boxes until needed, to avoid any dust particles/other dirt/debris getting at them whilst exposed to the air. And no, I don't have an OCD.
Black 9000 curently £119.99 in Argos. White can be had from Groupon I believe for £99.98
The battery on this thing sounds like absolute garbage - I've just cancelled my order as £59.99 is not cheap for something that's basically worthless, not fit for purpose and sounds like it should have been recalled.

I'm currently using a really old Philips Sonicare and it NEVER needs to be charged. Literally - I can't even remember the last time I charged it - it lasts forever between charges.

Well there are loads of reviews on amazon from ex-Oral-B users who after switching to Philips believe Sonicare performs better and clean teeth better so you can't just say Oral-B "definitely" wins.
Also there are divided opinions and advices from dentists.
In fact if any of these 2 were proven better, the other wouldn't exist.

that aside, in terms of battery life and charge time Oral-B performs miserably bad, and Sonicare is the clear winner hands down.

Oral-B owns the lower end market because they make models mostly around £20-£30 mark whereas Philips is generally more expensive starting around £40-£60..In USA for example Philips is considered the better one and more common than Oral-B as far as I know.and everyone knows Americans have better teeth than Brits lol
