    This is a single replacement for a 2 set. My wife Dropped one. It hit the tile floor and it only did low speed and smelled like it was burning, so thought it best to replace. We had that one for over a year and used at least 2 times a day. I'm still using the other to the 2 set, so I would say it lasts a long time. drugstore.com had the very best price( even over Costco).E-bay was the best price on replacement heads for us. The charge last a long time, when we travel we only bring one base and don't usually need the charger. Just change the brush heads.

    Extremely poor design. Like all toothbrushes, this gets wet. When it gets wet, water, toothpaste, and your saliva accumulate in the "well" of the toothbrush -- even if you dry it off immediately after each use. Unless you disassemble it and then clean and dry the inside of the toothbrush each and every time you use it (which would probably take about 5 minutes after each use), that accumulation turns to mold. It smells, is disgusting, and is at the very least unsanitary, if not outright hazardous to your health. I contacted Philips for a refund, but they wouldn't budge because it was 8 days outside of their refund policy. I asked them to send me a different model, but they wouldn't. I would not recommend this product or Philips in general.

    Timer disappointment

    By HawaiiGeiko

    Comments about Philips Sonicare Essence Sonic Toothbrush, HX5610/01, 1 ea:

    I love Sonicare toothbrushes and have been using them for years. When my last one stopped holding a charge, I ordered this one, but didn't realize that while this has the 2 minute timer, it doesn't have the 30 second breaks so you have to time or count out the seconds to change location. After using one of those for years, not having that feature is a huge disappointment and inconvenience.

                      This replaces a 10+ year old Sonicare whose battery no longer stays charged. I wanted to make sure I bought a new one that used the same e-series brush heads since I had two spares.

                      Why 3-stars?
                      One thing I don't like - and I wish I did more research - is that this model doesn't have the same 30 sec beep timer as my old model. It makes it easier to know when to move to the next quadrant and not run out of time because I spent too much (or not enough) time in one section.

                        I like this toothbrush. It cleans my teeth well and doesn't hurt. The price is not too high. The only drawback is that the handle is quite big, but acceptable.

                        Philips Sonicare Essence Sonic Toothbrush

                         – While regular cleanings at the dentist are essential to removing built-up tartar from along the teeth and gum line, daily oral care has a profound impact on the health of the teeth. According to dental professionals, tooth brushing greatly decreases the chances of developing cavities, gingivitis and other oral health problems, but only if it is performed effectively. The Philips Sonicare Essence Sonic Toothbrush is designed to enhance the effectiveness of daily brushing to help remove more plaque from the teeth, resulting in less tartar formation and less of a need for all that scraping when you visit the dentist.

                        The Philips Sonicare Essence Sonic Toothbrush has a state-of-the-art design that allows its head to vibrate at speeds of up to 31,000 brushstrokes per second. Each little stroke loosens plaque and removes food and bacteria, leaving the teeth and gums much cleaner. In clinical studies, the toothbrush was shown to eliminate up to 2 times as much plaque per use as a manual toothbrush. Still, the toothbrush is gentle on the tooth enamel and gum line, and as a result, it can be used on braces, dental restorations and even periodontal pockets.

                        The ADA has established guidelines for effective tooth brushing, and the Philips Sonicare Essence Sonic Toothbrush makes it easier to adhere to them all. The toothbrush from Philips has a SmartTimer that signals when 2 minutes have passed, so that you can brush for the amount of time recommended by dental professionals. The angled shape of the brush head allows for an easier reach to remove plaque from the back teeth and the backs of the teeth throughout the mouth. Plus, the toothbrush is better able to remove debris from between the teeth than any ordinary toothbrush.

                        Battery operated, the Philips Sonicare Essence Sonic Toothbrush can function for twice daily brushing for 2 weeks without requiring recharging. A battery light makes it easy to know when it's time to charge the toothbrush. To help you adjust to using the sonic technology, the toothbrush has an Easy-Start program that automatically increases the speed of the brush daily, reaching full speed within 14 uses.

                        The health of your mouth is of the utmost importance, and your daily oral care routine can go a long way to helping you have the healthiest teeth and gums possible. With the Philips Sonicare Essence Sonic Toothbrush, you'll get the most out of daily brushing with improvements that you can see and that your dentist will be sure to notice.
