Rated 4 out of 5 by KNewby The Diamond Clean has a "secret" last mode selected memory feature!
I already had a Sonicare Flexcare at home, that I didn't want to use for business travel, so I bought the Diamond Clean model as a dedicated travel toothbrush. I love that the travel case is also the charging base!
The most common complaint, about the Diamond Clean model, is the mode selection.
I almost didn't buy it based on this complaint in many of the reviews.
The problem is, even if everyone did read the manual, the manual doesn't properly explain the mode selection feature.
I discovered, by accident, that the Diamond Clean has a "secret" last mode selected memory feature.
By pressing the power on button once, the Diamond Clean will always operate at the last mode used.
For example, if you prefer to always use the Gum Care mode:
Before attaching the brush head, power on and scroll to the Gum Care mode, let the brush operate for 3-5 seconds, then power off.
Then when you're ready to brush, press the power on button and it will always operate in the Gum Care mode.
No need to scroll through the modes every time you power up.
I have no need for the mouthwash glass/charging base, as my Diamond Clean is primarily used for travel, and is stored in its case.
I agree, with the other reviews, that having to clean and dry the mouthwash glass, before charging, makes it cumbersome to use.
I tried using it, with my home Sonicare Flexcare, but it got annoying really fast.
I would have given the Diamond Clean 5 stars if the travel case had room for a travel size tube of toothpaste.

I have had two Sonicare (at the time top of the line) brushes. Both stopped working in a year or less. Way too much money for such a short period of time for use.

Twice we bought the sonicare and twice the brush stopped receiving a charge. That's it! Never again

Rated 5 out of 5 by KaraKaren The only brush you'll ever need
The only brush that gives your teeth the clean all day feeling.
I love this brush but it wasn't always so.
From a manual brush I tried the sonicare brush 7 years ago and just could not get over the strong vibration so instead I went to the Philips rotating head brush. I chose that one also because the heads were more common and more available for less.
However 2 years ago I gave this brush a second go and boy am I glad I did.
Using the trial newbie start at less go up to regular vibration setting and the gentle mode allowed me to easier accept the strong sensations this brush puts out.
Reminder: wet bristles before using and hold brush gently as if it were a flute (in the mouth) not as if you are cleaning tile. :) You will get used to how to hold your lips and how close to stand to the mirror for splatter potential.
I suggest keeping your brush as I do, off the charger until advised by the brush to charge it.
What I wish were the case:
-mode selector button
-newbie mode button/timer on/off
-charge level indication
I feel this brush has too many modes accessible through too little buttons. Having all under a master button when it harder to navigate the many modes during use usually means splattering everything everywhere.
When I brush I brush for longer than the timer.
I know it's a fantastic brush but that's even more clear after a prior boyfriend asked me if it were detrimental to feel so clean after using the brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RanB I was amazed by this toothbrush!
Since I haven`t been a fan of electric toothbrushes, I was somewhat hesitant when I received my free Sonicare Plaque Control Toothbrush in the mail to sample. When I sat down to open it, I was impressed right away with the slim, sleek design of the toothbrush as I remembered the clunkier ones from years past. I opened the information pamplet where I found easy-to-read instructions. I was amazed to find that this toothbrush has an Easy-start feature! The main reason I never liked electric toothbrushes previously is because they seemed too rough. The Sonicare Plaque Control Toothbrush has an Easy-start feature that gently increases power over the first 14 brushings to ease into the Sonicare experience. It was unbelievable the difference that this made! It was so simple to attach the brush head and use. The Sonicare Plaque Control Toothbrush also has a Quadpacer, which is an interval timer that has a short beep and pause to remind users to brush all 4 quadrants of your mouth as explained in the directions.
Another big surprise that delighted me is that it stays charged for 2 weeks! I love to travel to visit family and never wanted to go to the trouble to lug along an electric toothbrush and charger. Now, I can just pack my Sonicare Plaque Control Toothbrush in my travel bag with no trouble. Overall, I am overwhelmed by the cleanliness of my teeth and gums. They have never felt this clean unless I was just leaving my dental hygenist`s office. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend the Sonicare Plaque Control Toothbrush!
