Rated 1 out of 5 by Unimpressed2 Have had two break within one year each
I've owned two of these, both have broken within one year. The shaft that the head attaches to comes loose inside the unit, and vibrates around wildly. (Since the unit is sealed up I can't see what the problem is, of course). The first time this happened I thought maybe I was placing to much lateral pressure on the head, so I held the 2nd unit very gently, to no avail. The Essence model is a more robust design, as any pressure you apply against the head has no physical connection to the inside of the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dreamer123 This products meets all of my needs in taking care of my teeth and gums.
My Flex Care toothbrush has everything I need and want. I especially like the timer on it as well as the sanitation feature. Overall I am pleased with everything about it. It is top of the line and will enjoy it for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Helcia Easy to use and clean. Easily comes apart for cleaning.
Love how my teeth feel after each brushing. Almost as good as getting your teeth cleaned by the dentist.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jlbrand UV unit not a good product
I love Sonicare as far as the toothbrush is concerned. I was talked into buying the model with the UV sterilzer by my dentist in 12-2009 and it has quit working twice! I sent it back once, now have to send it back AGAIN. Apparently, your UV sterilizer is not a well made product. I am not hopeful that the 3rd time will be charm. In fact, I may just request a simple charger as a replacement to avoid this hassle, since after 12-2011, it will no longer be under warranty anyway. I plan to tell my dentist and anyone else I encounter to avoid wasting their money on this obviously defective product. Once could be considered a fluke. Twice is an inherent vice. BTW, I have been a Sonicare user since the mid-90s, and this is the first time I have had this issue. Sure, I've had the chargers go out before, but just once a warranty period. I have only had to replace my brush b/c I desired the newest models, not b/c the old ones quit working. This UV light thing is a waste of money, and now, wasting my time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gingivitisprone1 Toothbrush worked very well, but not long. 2d one, same problem.
I have bought 2 sonicare toothbrushes in the last 3 years. They work well, but just do not last. They were warranted for 2 years each, but did not come close. Brush refills are also quite expensive. Don't waste your money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by agneau Great product but doesn't last long
I am a dental practitioner and I highly advocate the use of ultrasonic toothbrush. Its ultrasonic vibration was gentle on my thin gum and my plaque was well under control. However it lasted only about two years for me. The post doesn't seem sturdy enough to hold the brush as it has become loose over time.
