Great toothbrush for a reasonable price. I previously had the Sonicare diamond clean, but when it reached the end of its life I decided I didn’t want to shell out another $200. Took a chance on this brush and I am happy I did. Battery life is great so I don’t have to keep it on the charger and it cleans just as well as the more expensive brush. Quadrant timers and pressure alerts are helpful, especially in the early mornings when I am still half asleep. Also love that I can change the cleaning mode and pressure based on my current needs. Came in sealed packaging as described with one brush head. Take a chance on this brush. You won’t be disappointed.
I did some investigating to find the best electric toothbrush and I am so glad I chose this one. Even though I had an older Sonicare that was fine, this one is so much better. I could tell it was doing a better job right away and when I went for my last cleaning the hygienist said that my teeth looked remarkably clean. It also seems quieter than my last one and takes less room on the counter.
I’ve had my Sonicare for nearly a year and a half now, and I mean, I couldn’t really complain. I loved the toothbrush as much as any Sonicare user does – the built-in timer is great, I really feel like my teeth are thoroughly cleaned, it’s an aesthetically pleasing toothbrush compared to its competitors. I’m a fan!However, over the past few months, I’ve started having some issues. I could previously go a few weeks without charging; that turned into just a few days. Suddenly, my toothbrush started buzzing extremely loudly and the vibration stopped carrying through to the toothbrush head, meaning the “sonic” part of Sonicare wasn’t working. I figured I was out of luck until I could afford a new Sonicare, but realized I was still within the two-year warranty period. Now, normally, I know you have to jump through so many hoops to get warranty help from any large company (especially when you purchase through Amazon), so I typically don’t even bother. However, I’m just not in a place financially to buy a replacement, I really love my Sonicare, so I figured I’d give it a shot.Filling out the warranty request form on their website took me about ten minutes total. I had to describe my issue, upload a picture of my receipt (order confirmation from Amazon), include shipping information, submit. The confirmation message told me I’d hear back within 48 hours – less than two hours later, I received an email telling me they were sending me a replacement toothbrush, no questions asked, no need to send in my toothbrush! That latter part likely is related to COVID-19, but I am beyond impressed by their response time and their willingness to trust me as a customer. I’ve had so many bad experiences with warranties before that I went into this with low expectations, and I am so beyond pleased with Philips and how they handled this.

My wife already uses a Sonicare Series 2 PlaqueControl and one thing we can say for sure that these toothbrushes are miles better than any manual or cheaper battery operated toothbrushes can be . Seriously my wife was skeptical and mentioned that how much better can it really be compared to her Oral-B battery operated toothbrush when she started using the Sonicare – And now its is impossible for us to go backUSING THE SONICARE TOOTHBRUSHES- Brushing your teeth couldn’t be easier or more thorough. All you have to do is move the toothbrush slowly sideways until the quadpacer timer (which comes on most models) reminds you to switch to a different row of teeth- Results are actually visible – when paired with a good withenting toothpaste , you will not only feel but also notice that your teeth are whiter and shiner- It only takes day or two to get accustomed to the high intensity vibrations of the toothbrush as you have avoid the back of the brush head hitting the teeth opposite to the ones you are brushing (it can be quite jarring )- All Sonicare brush heads are intercompatible with each other (except the E-series) You can use diamond clean, Plaque control , ProResults , Simply Clean brush heads depending upon your requirements or budget . There are generic off-brand replacement options available as wellCHOOSING THE RIGHT SONICARE TOOTHBRUSHThere is a lot of options within the Sonicare lineup of toothbrushes with increasing number of features and cost and choosing the right one can be a bit confusing. I will do my best to simplify it . But one thing you want to know of sure that ALL sonicare toothbrushes are capable of their main advertised ” Upto 31,000 Brush strokes per minute” , so in reality all Brush handles have the same ‘Cleaning Power’ and the only difference in different models is the bundled brush heads (which you can replace anyway) , speed settings , Mode settings, Pressure Sensors, travel cases and even bluetooth app connectivity ! Here is my take on a few different models , including the new 6 Series :
Series 2 – HX6211
– One of the most economical Sonicare toothbrushes and their ‘entry-level’ option- Yet it delivers the same ‘31,000 brush strokes’ cleaning power as the most expensive Sonicare model out there- Comes with their Plaque Control brush head (HX9023) , which is also one of their most economical options . You can always swap it with another brush head like the DiamondClean- Has a NiMh rechargeable battery instead of Li-Ion to reduce costs , as a result its handle is thicker- Some store exclusive models also have the quadpacer timer- Single speed, but has a beginner mode which gently ramps up speed over the first 15 brushings- $49 on Amazon
– Has 3 speed, 2 Mode settings- Has a Li-Ion battery and hence a slimmer handle- Comes with a plastic travel case- Comes with the DiamondClean brush head (HX6063/64) which is one of their best available brusheads in terms of whitening performance- Currently on sale at $49 on Amazon (as of 20th Feb) , which makes it an exceptional value for moneySeries 6 – ProteciveClean (This listing)- Has 3 speed settings- Adds a pressure sensor as well which gently warns you by pulsing its speed creating a rhythmic sound if you press the toothbrush too hard . This is not only good for your gums but also helps in making the brush heads (which are expensive) last longer- Also has a brush head replacement reminder indicator- 3 Modes with which get selected automatically if you use the newer smart brush heads (which have a WiFi like symbol) . This smart select is somewhat gimmicky as you can always select the modes manually. Also the smart chip enabled brush heads are more expensive than the regular non-chip models- Comes with the new Diamond clean (HX6063/65) chip enabled brush head. Which is really the same brush head as the regular DiamondClean head HX6063/64 with an additional embedded chip- Quadpacer, Li-Ion battery , Travel Case- You can also consider other models in the ProtectiveClean series if you like the pressure sensor, Models such as the 5100 or 4100 drop some features like speed control, mode control in favour of a lower costFINAL THOUGHTSAccording to me the main feature for the Sonicare ProtectiveClean Series is its pressure sensor which not only makes it gentle on sensitive gums , but also makes its brush heads last longer . It strikes a good balance between usable features and cost without superfluous features like a mobile app etc . So if you like a Pressure Sensor equipped Sonicare (which I highly recommend) you cant go wrong with the ProtectiveClean Series (6100, 5100, 4100)
First time user for electric toothbrush. Glad I spent extra for the toothbrush that has the different intensities because I needed to start on the lowest one first to get comfortable with it. I really like the change in tone that alerts you when to move to the next quadrant while brushing. Love the color and the case that comes with it. There are air holes on one side of the case so I just flip that side up to keep it ventilated while not using. Have been using it for a couple weeks without having to charge it yet. I also like that it has different modes that you can use. Really happy with my purchase!

Ok…maybe not for $1,000, but if you don’t brush with a Sonicare or some equivalent you’re missing out. Oral B is not equivalent.I went from regular toothbrushes to Oral B and said “why didn’t I just pull this out of my closet and put batteries in before?” Then I got the Sonicare 6500…Night and Day is not adequate enough of a description.I think I brush an extra time each day just to use it. The cost of the brushes isn’t terrible. ‘But it’s $40 for 4…’ Yeah and they’ll last you a whole year, maybe longer. I’m 1.5 months in and my first brush still looks new.Evangelists should tell people about the saving power of Christ, then quickly follow that with the tooth saving power of Philips Sonicare.I’m not going to go into details about the feel and timer and all that. The most helpful voted review covers all that. I will say that to prevent slipping, I used Dragon grip tape. I had extra of the hexagonal cutouts I use for my controllers and slapped some on semi-symmetrically.I have yet to use the travel case for actual travel because of the ‘rona. Will post an update about it later (maybe).2/13/2021It’s 70 days later and the change brush light came on 2 days ago. Included are pics of the old brush left, and new brush right. The instructions says the handle tracks time used and pressure applied to determine when to change.

Received the S/C 6100 and used it this morning. All I can say, is “wow”!!I’m inflicted with some gum disease problems inherited from my mother! She lost most of her teeth by the time she died. On the other hand, my father, had all his teeth w/ ONE CAVITY and perfect gums at his death at 90.I purchased the S/C 4100 but it does not have an “intensity” control and is very difficult for me to use it b/c it’s too “strong”. I HAD to return it.The 6100 on the other hand, has three (3) intensity setting PLUS three (3) brush mode settings. Setting it to “GUM” and low or medium intensity is absolutely perfect for my teeth and gums. Can’t say enough about it. It’s a keeper.
My son has the simple version with only one power setting. I tried it, and it is way too powerful for my mouth. This Philips Sonicare Protective Clean 6100, has three power settings, of which I use the lowest and medium. The three settings for gums, whiteness, and clean, are just the amount of time it runs to auto cut off.This comes with one toothbrush head for whitening/polishing. I bought a gum cleaning toothbrush head, which is larger, and covers a larger area. I use it the most, but change to the whitening head once a week.I bought a inexpensive holder here on amazon to rest the handle on after it is charged and to hold the extra toothbrush heads. It has been useful. I recommend it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07G87WDX8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I bought this item on the strong advice of my hygienist and dentist, who pointed out that I was damaging my gums with my excessive “sawing” motion with my manual toothbrush. This Sonicare product was exactly as advertised and came with a few little extras I wasn’t even thinking about, including a coupon for original replacement brush heads. Once you go Sonicare, you’ll never be satisfied with traditional manual brushing. The instruction book isn’t as clearly written as it could be. For example, every 30 seconds or so the brush pauses. Well, that’s an indicator to move to another area of your mouth. You’d think that would be clearly stated, but no. I went with the middle priced unit, although my engineer friends tell me to just buy the cheapest Sonicare; I don’t need the bells and whistles.
I love how this toothbrush feels both in my hand and on my teeth! The brush itself has a nice matte feel, and it’s the same material as the case as well. If I had to choose one thing I didn’t like, it’s that the case is entirely white, so I can’t see inside of it (I’m comparing it to another Sonicare brush with a translucent case that I liked). Other than that, this brush is perfect! I enjoy it very much and would recommend it to anyone! I also like this because it is very well priced. “Clean” and “White” are really the only two modes I set the brush mode on, and I feel like anything more than that is extra, so there is no need to buy the super expensive Philip Sonicare brush when you can have this one.
