Dropped mine and got a fast replacement from Philips, good service from them :)
Feel free to disagree. I've just tried to pass on my experience. Really angry with this purchase. 12 months or so into it, it failed, Philips sent me another no questions asked, and it failed in the same two ways battery died and switching itself on in the middle of the night. For a moment I thought the burglars had a snack and wanted to keep their teeth clean whilst they had the chance. The DiamondCleans - the gen1 I bought, also failed, but, I was travelling around a lot, so can't be sure if it was dropped by hotel staff as it started making a lot of noise but no real cleaning. Middle of the week after checking in to a 'reputable' hotel at the beginning of the week. Housekeeping bish bash bosh, move things around, you try proving it. I get what you're saying about the two button approach, because I was also apprehensive about the benefits of the DiamondClean and the absence of the button, but now, anything else is just second best.
Disagree, prefer this to diamonds ones, I like the 2 switches option better (y)
I'd stay away from this model. The second switch used to change modes sometimes has a mind of its own. I've had two of these, and both would switch on/off on their own accord whilst in their charging stand. And both had battery issues at around the 12 month mark. Not lithium ion so charge retention is not great. Not that cheap for a toothbrush that is coming up to 10 years old since it was first released. They've moved on since this was released.
