“Don't trust a company like this !!!!! WORST !!!!!”

Written on: 05/06/2014 by Intheloupe (1 review written)

Have a 250.00 toothbrush that hasn't lasted a year ! Registered it when purchased thought it was covered for two years called and was informed the store I purchased was not a registered seller ( how was I to know that thought a known chain store not a vender in ny would be a registered seller) my registration was on record though proving I owned the toothbrush for 9 month. I asked if I could just pay for the repair ... Ahh no they only replace broken toothbrushes with the correct warranty… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/10/2013 by bipa (1 review written)

Reason I give it a terrible review is because it quit working after approx. 6 months of less. I did not keep receipt as for the price of this toothbrush, I figured it would last at least a year. Had to go purchase a different brand!!!… Read Full Review

“definitely not worth it!”

Written on: 25/07/2013

My 1st one died within 2 years and I lost the receipt, so I decided to buy a second one in order to exchange the 1st one with the new receipt (guess what? 2nd one died too a year later). I called them and everything went fine and I've been told I will get a new one in 3 weeks. However, I've waited for 2 months and I finally decided to call them back and guess what? They said they haven't got ONE tooth brush in stock ever since that 2 months… Read Full Review

“Unenjoyable to use and short battery life”

Written on: 14/05/2013 by celestial (2 reviews written)

It is expensive, even with half-price discounts that abound but is pleasant-looking and features a unique cleaning method. Not sonic at all, it uses a forceful eddy of water which pushes up against the teeth and gums. The device took a month or so to get used to as it is quite speedy and gives a tickling effect to begin with. I had to keep stopping and starting for many weeks until I got used to it. Recharging is quite quick and power lasts for about a fortnight. The heads collect debris… Read Full Review

“Barely 2 years”

Written on: 28/04/2013

Had my Sonicare HX6972/10 for 2 years and 1 month so now out of warranty. It recently started switching itself on (sometimes in the dead of night) which was a little unnerving. I then noticed that you could not select all the programmes on it. I put the brush on to charge and noticed the charging lights had condensation inside. Clearly a seal has gone allowing moisture ingress. Surprising when it has never been dropped etc and always wiped clean/dry after use. For a product that has an RRP of… Read Full Review

“Dead Phiips sonicare”

Written on: 22/04/2013 by Darrenba (1 review written)

I am glad that others described their Philips issue. I bought the Philips Sonicare (HX6972/10 FlexCare+ Rechargeable Toothbrush with UV Sanitiser) as it looked so good. In less than a year the battery barely held its charge. Philips happily replaced the unit. Again, less than a year, that replacement has packed up. My partner has an (ugly) Oral B, but it keeps charged a long time and has not failed. I am switching to that brand now. Bad Philips!!!!… Read Full Review

“You are paying a rent actually...”

Written on: 18/03/2013

I have the Philips FlexCare toothbrush. It worked great for 18 months and now it is dying on me. I am positively sure that the breakdown is programmed in the micro controller. Of course I am not sure, but after reading all the comments (that I should have read before buying...) and after my experience and after talking to a friend who had the same problem I am pretty convinced. So you are not really buying it but paying a rent for the use of 18 months. By the way a pretty high rent… Read Full Review

“Longevity”

Written on: 28/02/2013 by smilinjack (1 review written)

No complaint about the way it cleans teeth but the thing croaked in less than 3 years even though I kept it well charged. And then the website is very inscrutable about that aspect. So, if you want to have good brushing but want to replace your device in three years, go ahead… Read Full Review

I bought one made-in-China Philips Sonicare tooth brush and found that it is sub-standard and could not be used without a major alteration made. The power plug pins could not plugin to any standard power point because it is over-size !

“Not Worth It!”

Written on: 22/01/2013 by bakerchez (1 review written)

I was given a sonicare by my mother years ago. I used it for 2 months and it broke. I tried a different one later on, with replaceable batteries. It broke within a month! I swore never to get another and switched to a Spinbrush (last 1 lasted 2 years for 1/3 the price) My wife just received one for christmas, one with replaceable batteries. I told her it would probably break in a month or so. Lo and behold it broke after using it about 10 times! I don't understand how anyone can use these… Read Full Review

“Built to fail!”

Written on: 14/11/2012 by Mitchlet (1 review written)

My sonicare made my teeth feel lovely and clean but it failed within a year. Boots replaced it. The second one failed after 18 months even thought I kept good care of it and was the only user. My Dad bought one too and has had exactly the same experience and was stalled repeatedly by Phillips. So neither of us are going to buy this overpriced, badly built piece of kit again! … Read Full Review

“Philips Sonicare, Ultrasonic Toothbrush”

Written on: 08/09/2011 by Vincent.p (1 review written)

This is my fourth Sonicare toothbrush. After the first two died I changed to their flexCare model which is expensive! Thinking this just has to be the best out there. How wrong I was, alas the same old problem. They are good for the first six months to a year and then they gradually shake themselves to death. They always die just after the warranty runs out! Philips are not helpful to replace units. So I've now decided enough is enough, it's time for another brand as I've had all I can take… Read Full Review

“Not built to last”

Written on: 29/07/2011 by william85 (2 reviews written)

This is my 3rd Sonicare. The first one lasted 2 years, the second for only one year and the 3rd only for one year - and I am the only one using it. The On/Off button is not durable and has failed on all 3 brushes. Is is a good toothbrush but is simply not built to last and that makes it very poor value for money. I'm now going to try an Oral B to see if they're any better. Very disappointing… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/01/2011 by gillianoleary (5 reviews written)

I have just purchased the new 6792 Flexcare+ from the Philips Sonicare range and am more than happy with the features.
Yes it is very pricey but I luckily did not pay the £200 asking price but got it for £25, thank you Boots!!
It is the fourth or fifth toothbrush I have bought in the Sonicare range over the last decade or so. That includes my husbands so they do last well.
I agree with other comments that they need to be dried after use, but surely that is not a big deal.
The new one comes with… Read Full Review

“The phillips sonicare flex is a brilliant toothbrush...”

Written on: 04/06/2010

The phillips sonicare flex is a brilliant toothbrush for cleaning etc but just isn't durable, mine broke just outside the warranty period with 2 people using it. That's when I discovered that spare parts aren't available and that even the internal battery has been designed to make it virtually irreplaceable, all more profit for Philips at the expense of the environment with uneccessary waste going to landfill. I managed to open my toothrush up and if spares had been available I'm sure I could… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/10/2009

The worst toothbrush I have ever had! Easy to use, not bad looking design but if you don't have a habit of proper cleaning and drying it every time you use it then forget it! Because of the moisture in the bathroom I have some kind of fungus growing at the base of the toothbrush. I never had problems with any other toothbrushes, but then again they were not made of rubber all around the handle. There are black spots very slowly growing on the rubber part and they are impossible to clean! They… Read Full Review
