This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Deal of the Day on Amazon.
Best price in a while but it's not the lowest historic price (warehouse deal ~ £75 back in 2017).
If you've already got one that has failed, eBay are selling handles only for around £50 eg here.

In my opinion, the most functional Sonicare without unnecessary chintz.

Available in different editions: black, pink, white, rose gold.
Brush refills tend to be cheapest in white due to high production volume, so before you choose colour, bear it in mind if you're the sort of person that likes things to match.
You could save another £8 off if you use the £80 voucher/£8 free top up.
And potentially another £10 off if you use the £10 voucher when signing up to Audible trial for the first time.

Amazon states 2019 edition. I'm not sure that's a thing, if anything, it should just be called the DiamondClean Deep Clean edition.

Product features:
  • A whiter smile from day 1 vs a manual toothbrush and leading whitening toothpaste
  • Removes up to 10x more plaque vs a manual toothbrush, improves gum health in just two weeks
  • Choose from five modes: Clean, white, sensitive, gum care and deep clean
  • Philips Sonicare sonic technology pulses water between teeth, and its brush strokes break up plaque and sweep it away for exceptional cleaning
  • One of the best recommended sonic toothbrush brand by dental professionals worldwide
  • 14 days battery life; ideal for travelling
  • 2 years warranty and 28 days money back guarantee (used to be one year - so perhaps they've made some internal improvements)
  • Comes with a home mains charger, travel USB charger and travel case.

How does this model compare to the 6100? Stuck making the decision between the two

The 6100, looks like it has rubber membrane switches. I found on their past models, the rubber would degrade and cause a potential failure point allowing water ingress. They may have made improvements on the 6100 and applied a different approach behind the fascia. It's got the two switches which I think might compromise water resistance - but I could be just chatting b L x.

6100 vs Diamondclean --> electricteeth.com/pro…rt/
Ignore the reference to the Smart Diamondclean - it's basically a DiamondClean with bluetooth connectivity and brush detection (you'll see what looks like the WiFi symbol on the brush head) which are just gimmicks.

This posted DiamondClean 'deal', despite being called that, doesn't come with a DiamondClean brush head, it comes with what they call the 'adaptive' "deep clean" brush head (has bristles/tufts that are sprung mounted into the head) which some claim drops tufts after a few uses.
There's nothing stopping you using DiamondClean or any of their other brush heads though. (Amazon do packs of 8 DC's for under £20 every now and again.) You won't have to rely on BrushSync, giving you the control you want and you can change the brush refill when you decide, with visual cues of either when the brush has splayed or when the blue indicator bristles have faded.

BrushSync seems to be something they're rolling out across all pricepoints of their range. It looks to be a bit of a slippery slope. Advertised as recognising which brush head you've attached and instructs the handle to operate using the relevant brushing action, in place of what used to be the mode button, they've replaced it with an intensity selector.
The brush head has an embedded chip which I think is also used to track the number of times it's been used and I believe triggers an LED to encourage (force?) you to replace. They've dropped the indicator dyed brush filaments in favour of electronics tracking your usage.
A bit too nanny voodoo for me.

I think it's Philips' way of encouraging you to use genuine brushes if you want full functionality. The brushes cost a little more than before, thanks to the added sync circuit, and there's nothing to stop them programming the device from operating at less than its best if you don't change when THEY tell you to.
There's such a thing as solving a problem that doesn't exist - and who stands to profit? Not the user.

I'd go for the DiamondClean. It's a previous generation flagship toothbrush, vs 6100 which is aimed at the mid-range market. DiamondClean has 5 modes vs the 6100's 3 modes. DC is better built IMO, plus it also comes with a travel friendly case/USB charger. It costs a little more though!

EDIT: Now priced the same since akashp's highlighted at around 9pm.

'S'not bad, beats the £50 that Boots normally charge, but you might want to keep your eyes open for a sub £20 price-point for genuine brushes that Amazon are known to do. I think the lowest price they've ever done them for is £17.99

Just be aware that the BrushSync feature the brushes have won't be doing anything with the DiamondClean units you've chosen.

You've picked up these brush-heads at a reasonably good price, but don't rely on it being the case in the future - keep your eyes open for non Brush-Sync offers.

Enjoy using it. Certainly made a difference when I bought into the product concept.
Anyone know that the difference is between this model and the previous model with the larger charging glass. It seems philips website doesn't really say anything about it other than the head you get is different.

Philips' model numbering is very misleading, making it a little difficult to identify if it's a previous year's model or from current range as the packaging looks almost identical. Most retailers don't quote the full product code and as far as they're concerned, it's the same model.
(You'd hope that a newer model has improvements applied but that's not always the case with tech, sometimes newer can mean corners have been cut - impossible to tell until you compare them in person. The comparison chart you've linked to indicates the HX9351/52 has 2 weeks battery life compared to the 3 offered by the glass equipped HX9351/04)


As for features - it's pretty much the same thing minus the brush-head as you've said, and the cost saving for Philips in not supplying the consumer with a glass tumbler, that's just reserved to be given to purchasers of the DiamondClean Smart brush which costs another +£100.

The tumbler has been replaced with an acrylic dock/puck which only offers a few mm's of grip when you dock the brush during charging, which means the toothbrush is more at risk of toppling over if you accidentally nudge it whilst you're going about your bathroom business.

If you've got the older glass plus charger, the new brush handle works fine with them.
The inductive charger that sits beneath glass tumbler or acrylic puck hasn't changed, and you can find the glass tumbler being sold just on its own on eBay or specialists like shavers.co.uk/per…tml

What kills these things is if you drop them. If it has a hard landing, you run the chance of disturbing the internal mechanism.
If affected, when you power it on, it will sound noticeably louder (which kind of makes you think - wow! it's working even better) but it just indicates that the shaft mechanism may no longer be centrally aligned with the electromagnet or the assembly mounting bracket has been compromised. The net result is that instead of all energy being transferred efficiently to the bristles to achieve the high speeds sonic toothbrushing is all about, some will be wasted vibrating the handle casing instead.

(Two have suffered this fate when staying in hotels, but you try proving that to the hotel manager that his/her cleaning staff have damaged your toothbrush when it powers on, so to their eyes will seem to be working fine.)

Cheers for the comments, I was looking at them all, I particularly like the EU version because it's purple.

amazon.fr/dp/…c=1

(I have Amazon prime France for 30 days

I also noticed that the Italian offer was for the black version with a water flosser for only an extra 30€
amazon.it/Phi…8-7

Or they have the double pack for 155€ but the price will change for Italy as the VAT is higher so you save another 3% I believe (though you pay postage).
amazon.it/Phi…8-1

Very tempted for either Purple or the Flossing pack - still undecided.

Purple one - you won't be able to find same coloured refills. They've abandoned the colour a while back. If you can live with the Prince inspired handle and a vanilla brushhead - go for it.

The flosser - again, lots of mixed reviews about it. First couple of gen machines were cackola. So be careful with Philips' model numbering, which model will you be supplied?
I gave up on them when I saw internal rechargeable battery issues being reported and that it has a slightly more complicated idea behind it, so that it only dispenses sprayed water/solution when you press against the space between two teeth. Because it's not working constantly whilst you're maneuvering it in your mouth, the idea is it needs less liquid to be stored in the tank for you to do a complete job. But, some reviewers talk about having to refill it more than once whilst using it and the tank flap is prone to detaching.

I thought I'll get a travel one - bought a Panasonic portable irrigator that's still going strong almost 8 years later. I use it with rechargeable batteries and if you get caught out whilst away from home, chuck in a pair of standard AA's.

And for home, got Oral-B's Oxyjet (imported or slightly older models available) or take a look at their Water-Jet. Both are the same apart from different nozzles - which can be ordered separately and are interchangeable.
Oxy-jet aerates the water as it spins a turbine producing a cone of water that massages your gums really well. You can lock it to a single jet by pressing the grey collar that "hangs" off-centre.

The Water-Jet head is just a single, more powerful jet. The blue tip is sprung so if you end up pressing against your gums or teeth, it temporarily recedes causing the water to fan out reducing the pressure.

I was never sure about the flosser. I still prefer purple but as you say for an extra 50€ you get another one and all the charging gear. Interestingly it seems to be widely sold in Poland in that double pack for 290€ which is a rip off. Plus I joined amazon prime Italy last year for something (don't recall) and I am not sure they will give me another 30 days FOC.

I still have my old one, although it is looking tired.

Just get the replacement handle via PayPal.
Sounds like you're just looking for an excuse to splurge - which is what Prime Day is all about. (Buy it even though you don't really need it - it's amazing the power Amazon have developed over us. I'm just as guilty. Bought things only because they were on good price plus the £8 freebie with an £80 top-up voucher)


EDIT: I've just realised there's contradiction from where the eBay available handles ship from. Is it Birmingham or US or China?
The Ch-English used seems to indicate they're based offshore with perhaps a shell company in Birmingham.

Hhhmmm, makes your decision yet more difficult.

Try contacting Shavers.co.uk tel: 0115 773 0002 - they're definitely UK based, in Nottingham and are a Philips authorised dealer (I think they send out warranty replacement handles on behalf of Philips).
I've dealt with them before and I have nothing but good words to say about their service.
Even bought something which ended up not impressing me. Nothing wrong with it, just it didn't really offer all the wow it claimed to offer. They were more than happy to offer a full refund and freepost return label months after buying it.

See what they can do in the way of offers, call them.

It does, I know the feeling about splerging, I bought a printer I didn't really need but then I got £100 cashback from Brother on it. Some other items that lets face it aren't a necessity but a nice to have.

Partner doesn't have one, tempted for the double pack just to be able to say you can have one. I suppose then the handle is the same price as the difference between single and double.

There we go - guilty here to trying to justify buying something. Such consumerists.
They don't do handled according the the person I just spoke to.
