There are so many versions of this.... Which is the best or latest?

They nearly all have a two minute timer divided into four thirty second phases. They can all use the range of brush heads. Just get the cheapest you can find with a reasonably slim handle. Target price £30 for EasyClean model.

Agree totally, they were only about 26 quid in the not so distant past, but this time around I bought a new "spare" one at £30 as they haven't been nearly so cheap.

Not the 3 series though, and there is little price difference :-(

I replaced the HX6511/50 paid £45, for the Diamond Clean, I only ever use 1 mode so it was a waste of money for me. Also had to have a replacement after 18 months.

That's why I buy them when they are cheap and keep a spare!

Still Up to 31,000 brush strokes/min 3 series, unless I'm missing something on theirr site.

Ooh I need a new electric toothbrush, is this a good one? The replacement heads for all electric toothbrushes are expensive but I always seem to manage to get them on offer

I was at the hygienist yesterday and asked (yet again) the Sonicare vs Oral B question. It's been Oral B from every dentist and hygienist I've asked - they also say those water pic things are a waste of money and skip the mouthwahs as, at best, it does nothing and many of them will stain your teeth.

I'm sure this brush is better than manual brushing but when you can get an Oral B (must be 3D, eg the 600) for under £20 or a bit more for the new long life battery models this isn't a great buy.

Philips have a 20% code 11NEC20. DMNOV18 18% off 10% Quidco. 13% TCB possibly. Add UPS Express delivery £5.99 no extra charge.
HX6921/43, 5 modes £52.80. the brush heads also have 20% off philips.co.uk/sho…_CA

They used to list the speed, 11000/min compared to 31000 but now seem refer only to them being 3x as good removing plaque as a manual instead of 10x for the faster speed ones.

They now also do this model with 15,000 brush strokes per minute amazon.co.uk/Phi…NAK

I have both, had the Oral b first and then bought a Sonicare, but kept it and it still works fine. I use the Sonicare all the time and occasionally do a job with the oral B. Seems to get slightly different results on different stains, but if I was using just one it would be the Sonicare every time.
Oral B seem to do a particularly good job with advertising and Dentists freebies though! ;-)

I take your point but I believe the team at my dental practice are very professional and they have each recommended Oral B on different occasions. They didn't knock the others, just preferred Oral B. In terms of manufacturer influence they have very specifically said you don't need the more expensive Oral B brushes (they can get VERY expensive when loaded with fairly pointless extra features) just the most basic 3D model (600 or similar), currently available for under £20.

Wife recently moved from Sonicare to Oral B. Cost of the heads on the Sonicare was a factor too.
