I wish bloody toothbrush heads were universal - I'd be all over this if it wasn't for my hoard of oral b heads!

The heads are what they make the serious profit on so no way they would standardise - even my Sonicare heads wouldn't fit this.

It's like printer, that's how they earn more money

This is an awesome deal and have bought one for the OH.

The reviews on Philips website aren't great however £15 instead of £50 would probably have garnered better reviews.

FYI to save you checking, best price on eBay was £19.99 inc postage.

I thought the PowerUp models were battery only, seems I was wrong. This model does up to 15,000 strokes a minute, whereas the next "basic" model up, the Easyclean HX6511 is 31,000 - same as the more expensive HealthyWhite which is a fantastic brush (I'm on my second) - also the DiamondClean is rated at 31,000.

From reviews for the Green version HX3110:

"...it is branded Sonicare, but its not a real Sonicare (lower spec mechanism), hence the low price."

"If you have ever used a real Sonicare before, you will not like this one! Very noisy, very low frequency "sonic" and has been remarked, no charge indicator. It's supposed to have a two minute timer, I gave up well before that!!"

"I bought this to replace a Philips Sonicare HX6782/33. The '6782 had lasted for three years, and had cleaned my teeth much better than the Oral B I used for 5 years before that, so I thought buying another sonicare would be a no brainer.
Well, the HX3110/02 is the worst toothbrush I have ever used, and I am including non powered toothbrushes here!
The battery lasts one and a half goes, so it has to be permanently on charge. All other toothbrushes last around a week on a full charge.
Most toothbrushes now have a timer that tells you when to change your brushing (so you spend equal time on the upper and lower jaws), but the HX3110/02 does not have this.
The '3110 does not come with a carry case - every other electric toothbrush I have owned has.
The '3110 is heavy. Far heavier than both the better Sonicares and the Oral Bs.
The '3110 has an awful vibration action (caused by its heaviness). It literally sounds and feels like resting a back and Decker drill on your head and then turning it on. I physically cannot stand using the '3110, it is that bad.... and I have been using electric toothbrushes for several years!"


For the Pink model: "I have built up quite a collection of electric toothbrushes over the years, some very good, some not so good, and some pretty poor. Unfortunately this Sonicare HX3130 falls into the latter category for me. It is bulky, takes a long time to charge (with no charge indicator that I can find), is uncomfortable to use, and as a result not particularly effective. This is advertised as being as easy to use as a manual toothbrush, whilst removing more plaque. Well I don't think it's as easy or as controllable as a manual brush, it certainly costs a lot more, and as for the plaque claim - well I guess I'll have to take their word on that. Comes with just one brush head, and replacements are not cheap either. This toothbrush is at the low end of the Sonicare range and it shows. I have also found the two minute timer to be wholly inadequate for a "thorough brushing". Philips have some great toothbrushes in their Sonicare range, but this isn't one of them, and demonstrates that you get what you pay for."

I would read the negatives and positives before buying - I've been using sonic toothbrushes for nearly 10 years, I suppose we make the assumption all sonic toothbrushes are similar beasts.

Amazon sometimes has the EasyClean in the mid £20s, so might be worth holding out for that one.

I have one of these Colgate "sonic" battery toothbrushes as a travel toothbrush (you can often pick them up for around £2 from Boots/Superdrug) which claims to do 20,000 strokes a minute. Compared to my Sonicare HealthyWhite HX6731 it's nowhere near as powerful, I dread to think what the HX3130 would be like!

I have the green version and have had it a year and a half. Battery is definitely holding-up better than previous oral b toothbrushes i have had. It does have a 2 minute timer. Only down side is how loud it is when it is in your mouth, its like a pneumatic drill.

The new Sonicare's I've bought have all been Li-ion batteries. My original was Ni-MH. Definitely notice the improvement in how long between charges now.

Voted hot. Thanks for sharing OP.

Am I the only one that think Amazon are ridiculously clever with tempting its customers to their prime offering with lower prices for them?
