Rated 2 out of 5 by Janet Disspointed in this model
I bought this product at Walmart. Two years ago I purchased a two pack at Costco. I thought this was the same thing. I was disappointed that my original sonic care lasted only two years. I almost didn't repurchase sonicare. First disappointment in the new product was the lack of he pause for brushing four quadrants. Next was the product seems to be much more intense My overall feeling is disappointed. now I'm stuck with it till it dies!

I just bought my 3rd Essence, I love them. My first one lasted 2 years before it stopped holding a charge for more than 30 sec. I bought another one last January from Walmart and it doesn't have the timer that tells you when to move to another part of your mouth, which I missed. But it was every inexpensive, so I couldn't complain too much. I just bought a 2pk of them at Costco, to split on with a friend at a very good price. I haven't even opened it yet and see that they have the 2-series Plaque control on sale for only a few bucks more and was thinking about exchanging the Essence for it, thinking newer is better. But it didn't get as many stars, so think I'm going to stay with the trusted E series. I hope it doesn't get discontinued. If I could change anything, I wish the brush head was a little more angled.
For all those people complaining about it getting smelly and slimy, try rinsing it out after you use it, duh! What do you think happens to the saliva and toothpaste if you don't? The battery compartment is sealed tight. The top is meant to unscrew, rinse and replace when the brush head is worn out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jgriff Works better than Oral-B
Coming from using Oral-B and having way too many dental issues, I decided it was time for a change. For me the Sonic works way better!! Gets in between the tight spots and gum lines etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Motherhood Product is doing a great job.
This was recommended by my dentist for the best results. I am happy with it and the built in timer makes me brush my teeth longer.

We love our new toothbrush. Love how it turns off after two minutes. My teeth feel like I just left the dentist everyday now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maryellen Convenience and ease of use
Product exceeds expectations. Had my teeth cleaned at my dental appointment and since using the Sonicare both my husband I still agree we feel like we just have our teeth professionally cleaned every single time we brush with the Sonicare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Georgie3208 Good product
I love the Sonicare; it replaces one I had for about 15 years. It works very well. The only flaw in it is a design flaw where water gets down into the brush well area & will not come out unless you take the brush off & clean it out inside, which is not practical to do often. Mold & mildew collect inside which cannot be great for putting in your mouth. The last one had the same flaw, & I was hoping they had corrected it by now.
