The Colgate one was a fiver, and refills 30 pence, absolute bargain. Was tempted to clear the shelves, but the wife was with me so had to behave myself. X)
maybe store specific , but voting very hot
Would of taken them all
yeah I'd pay triple the price for the lot
Anybody else manage to get this or wild goose chase?
Still £65 in Swansea.
Load of rubbish then

Why do you say that? I paid £5.00 for mine, and the shelves were full of them. Looks like it may be a misprice in my store as the label underneath has them reduced by £5.00 to £60.00. Looks like someone has reduced them by £60.00 rather than £5.00. But it is a deal none the less if you can get to Tesco Carluke. Looking at some of the other Tesco in store deals, it looks like each store manager is given freedom to price as he/she chooses.

Glad to have helped. Tesco pricing is a bit crazy sometimes.
My place knocks 50p off and they see it as a bargain. Does my head in.
Great find
If only one other person benefits it was worth the effort.
None in any of the Manchester or Stockport Tescos. Cold.
Wow cold just because were unlucky to have none in our tescos. not nice that. Thank you to the person who listed for trying to help others cheers

Don't think this is nationwide.
Sonic means the brush head vibrates at high frequency but with just a tiny amount of motion. I think the oral-b ones that have the moving heads do a better job of cleaning teeth and gums.

The above paper in the Journal of Clinical Dentistry seems to indicate that for plaque removal the Sonicare was better, and the was the better product overall. Admittedly the paper was written in 1997, and technology has improved significantly, but the substantive difference between the two technologies is still the same. It's also worth bearing in mind that all the test subjects suffered from periodontitis (gum disease); they did not have healthy mouths to begin with. But - I'm not a dentist so you'll just have to read it for yourself.

Always useful to have some empirical data, rather than just anecdotal accounts in such matters!

I have another reason to prefer Philips over Oral-B: my Oral B had a concave "mount", which of course meant water and gunk collected there - I had to clean it daily. It is now in my drawer and I'm happily using a Philips
Not in prestwich, all full price
Nearly 400 degrees and only the Op has managed to buy one

The main reason I posted was because there were loads of them, and loads of other teeth cleaning items drastically reduced in price, so reckoned that more than me would benefit. The Carluke store serves quite a large area and I reckoned there would be many HUKD followers that would be able to pop in.
If you look up several posts you will see that 'JLLM' travelled to the same store and got some of the reduced toothbrushes.

Not only the OP I got the tooth brush posted and others which were reduced. I wouldn't have got these if Zonte hadn't posted.
Loads on the shelf at Southport but all full price.

Strange. The one I got had originally been reduced to £60, then reduced again to £5. Think someone at the Tesco Carluke branch was sniffing glue!

Full price at Bicester, £140.
Full price at Dudley extra guessing it's a store cock up

Wow, what a detailed review. Thanks, I am sure you have put many prospective purchasers off.
My boy had a brace fitted on Friday. On the way home from dentist popped into Tesco Ely to get "mini bottle brushes" for between his teeth; a table near the tills had reduced dental care items, one off the subject of this thread reduced from £90 to £27.50, several lesser reduced from £33 to £16.50 and some Sonicare 2 black reduced from £19.80 to £9.90. Also a Colgate model.Got the 8911/04 and a black.
I saw some Sonic 2's for £23.10 today in one Tesco but the Sonic 3's were on the clearance shelf but still £65. I scanned them both to double-check their prices.
