Philips Sonicare HX6511 sonic toothbrush £22.50 in TESCO & John Lewis

47
Found 22nd Feb 2016
I love this toothbrush. As good as high end ones in terms of strokes. Today bought another one just because I couldn't resist the price.
Available in Tesco (instore and online) and I see the same price on John Lewis page.

£39.99 on Amazon at the moment, never cheaper than £30.99

Better than oral b? Anyone used both?

Better than oral b? Anyone used both?


I'm not sure about OralB "sonic" style, but way better than OralB oscillating ones (I'll never get back to them).
Yer currently got the oscillating oral b equivalent to this. Basically the cheapest model with the same brush strokes as the top of the range, just without all the different modes and accessories. Tempted to try this out as oral b is getting old now and battery is starting to wane

I wouldn't hesitate. There isn't a lot to lose - Chargers go for £10 on eBay, original brush head no cheaper than £5, which leaves you with £7.50 for the toothbrush itself. I would say, that it's a good opportunity to try it.
Cool - ordered tesco.com/dir…921 which is the same brush it seems just a different head (diamond variety which i presume is the best one)
I bought one from tesco Bolton last week and it's great, a few more left on shelf

I've used an oral b vitality sonic toothbrush for about 4 years I think, picked up the healthy white version on Saturday and can't believe the difference, I love it
Great brush, but after 6 months the stud which connects the brush to the body will bend . Even if you use light pressure. When it bends, the vibrations are weaker so it won't clean your teeth properly. Check out the bad Amazon reviews. Sure it's a great brush when it works!

Had mine for 4 years and not had this problem.

Agreed, had a couple of them and never had that issue either.
Bought last week,One of the best brushes I ever used very strong and cleans very well. Hundred percent recommended to all of that in need of a toothbrush.
Ta very much!
Bought one as an Amazon lightning deal xmas 2014, for more than this one costs. Very happy with it, no bending of the stud either. Not sure why it would bend, you're not really supposed to push hard, its the oscillating that cleans.
I ordered this as a backup as I have heard they last little more than 2 years, now I have read greencodes post it may have been a waste of money!
They're 10x better with diamondclean heads. The stock easyclean head sucks.
I've just ordered the Philips Sonicare HX6511/44 from tesco direct as it's the same price. Here's to whiter teeth!

Eh? It's still £22.50, unless you're suggesting they sell the charger and brush head on eBay? I'm confused.....
Best toothbrush I ever used this. Bought it for 35 at Xmas time. Worth every penny.
Ordered one, had my current sonicare for years and was thinking about replacing
What's the difference between the HX6511/43 and HX6511/44 ?
does this take 12 hours to charge properly like oral b? My main gripe with these...

Different heads seems to be the only difference I can see
Tesco £2 extra to collect in store ?!

​The slow charge is designed to make the battery last longer. I noticed my new BT phones have a charge input of something like 100mW which is tiny.
Same price in John Lewis..so not really a great deal as such.

That's a Price Match. I'm sure Amazon were also doing the same.

My hygienist recommends rotary over sonic, and either over manual brushing.

Yes much better,Orab B is so overrated,they sell more because of better advertisement and marketing.
But Sonicare is much better than Oral B.go check reviews on amazon,there are mani ex Oral B users..

Yep, don't really see the problem. It starts to let off little vibrations when it's nearing the end of the battery. When that time comes you just charge it overnight and you're done!

Yes,however the charge lasts MUCH longer than Oral B.also Oral B takes 18-24 hours to charge and then depletes with just 4-5 applications.

Brush heads (can see someone has replied already).

/43 is the DiamondClean head, /44 is the Sensitive head.

You can also get ProResults or Mini ProResults heads too, depending on your preference.

My dentist doesn't know what I'm using, I told him after he said a few years back, "Whatever you're doing to your teeth these days, keep doing it". He said my teeth and gums' health are much improved after me using (two) Ultrasonex brushes, and now on my third Sonicare Healthywhite - all sonic brushes.

He was rather evasive about Oral-B vs Sonicare - "both are good". Maybe it depends what your dentist/hygienist actually uses, or even what they are selling - though that's me being cynical.

Have to laugh..I use manual still but a couple of year ago my dentist was pushing everyone to get electric toothbrushes (handing out discount vouchers).

The next visit she asked if I'd got one...I'd forgot all about it and under pressure said "yeah, got the oral b one"..(just cos I didn't want the big sell again)....anyway she checked my teeth and said "I can tell you've been using the electric brush, your teeth are a lot cleaner".

So that alone made me sceptical and whatever I'm doing with the manual brush MUST be as good as an electric for her to meniton how clean my teeth were.

Makes you wonder really.

Says more about your dentist I think, unfortunately....my dentist made the comment with no awareness of what I'd been doing
Does this come with a charger? I couldn't find anywhere on the site that says exactly what you get.
