I've been looking for a decent toothbrush after using Oral B's for the last couple of years. I decided to look at either this model or the - Philips Sonicare HX9332/04 DiamondClean Rechargeable, currently on Amazon for £124.99.

After much researching the differences. I decided to opt for this model and have been waiting for the price to drop. Last week it was still priced at £150.00, ignore the £225 (RRP) as Amazon never sell it at that price. However a lot of retailers still try to.

For those wondering the main difference between these and the HX9332. Essentially the cleaning performance is the same. But it was explained to me, the HX9172 is the newer and more advanced model. It has more settings (9 brushmodes) that can be tailored to the individual user rather than the HX9332 which has 5 brushmodes. I liked the idea of the HX9332 having the "White" and the "Polish" brushmode and was originally going to purchase that one. However, a Philips chat agent advised me that I could achieve the same results with the HX9172 and "should purchase the cheaper model as it was the newer and more advanced brush."

The HX9172 has an integrated ultraviolet (UV) sanitiser, which apparently removes up to 99% of bacteria* on your toothbrush. Unlike the other model it also has an Intuitive pressure sensor.

The HX9332 comes with a Conductive glass charger and a USB Travel Charger and Case. While these might be a bit gimmicky they may well be handy for someone. It doesn't come with the UV sanitiser.

There is a comparison sheet at the bottom of the Amazon selling page for further info. on these and other models. Worth noting that in a lot of cases the heads are interchangeable between models.

I don't expect this to get remotely hot, but the I the info. may well help someone that's looking to buy one now.

Rhod Gilbert would go to town on this

this is better … this is better mate

I seriously don't want to spend stupid money on a damn toothbrush. But, I was advised by my dentist to change from an Oral B to a Sonicare, so totally excluded them from my comparisons. But since posting this I've been reading up on this exact model and there's mixed opinions on which are better. But, generally they seem comparable and not to undermine my own deal, but that Braun is on an Amazon Lightening deal later today. The other obvious benefit is the heads are cheaper.


Good old Rhod. He's talking about the other model, with the USB Thanks for posting, it made me laugh.
I thought this was a terrible brush. Do you know how long it took to do the kitchen floor with it? At first I thought, this is a joke, it can't be this small but then I figured, everything is miniaturized now so started using it. I'd like a longer battery life as you can't do a full room on one charge. I wouldn't buy again.
