    I love my Counter Violight. I have had this same violight for 3+ years and the bulb just now stopped working, I noticed on the mfg website it says bulb should only work 12 - 18 month then need replaced. I used my twice a day morning and night daily and it did it's job. I never experienced any mold or uncleanliness issues like the other posts but I will say I rinse my toothbrush really well to make sure I get all toothpaste off the toothbrush before storing just as a habit before I started using the Violight, so that habit may have helped maintain my Violight. My husband does not rinse his toothbrush as well and his side of the violight requires cleaning. My side always looks good. The unit is easy to clean and the bulb is easy to replace if needed. I am buying a second unit to replace my 3 year old unit. I hope the 2nd one works just as good as my first violight worked. Best wishes!

    Great idea, terrible design. I bought this in hopes of cutting down on winter colds for my kids, but this device is like a glowing blue spitoon. There's no good way to clean it without damaging the interior finish, which is apparently crucial to its performance. Like that of another reviewer, mine too grew mold within a week and it's as nasty or worse than a simple cup, which you can at least put in the dishwasher. And the kids still got strep as usual. A waste of money.

      Every evening and morning after brushing our teeth we set the light on for the 10min cycle and feel comfortable the next time we use our toothbrush we are not putting bacteria in.

              I have purchased this product for myself and for my father. We both have used it for some time (over 2 years), and I was on the website to buy another for a gift when I saw the negative review. We have not had this problem. The unit is easy to maintain and with all the health concerns of late, I think it is an important addition to any bathroom.

                I purchased this product in order to sterilize my toothbrush DAILY! I have found that, in order to keep from getting canker sores inside my mouth (aphthous ulcers) which are VERY painful, I need to keep my toothbrush SCRUPULOUSLY clean! This product really accomplishes that.

                    Poorly made, cheap plastic painted to look like metal, parts shatter when washed, replacement parts overpriced. The product is an insult to consumers. Charging [$] for it is criminal. Don't waste your money.

                    I'm taking their word for it, that it really works.
                    Hopefully just a coincidence, a week after using Violight,
                    I came dow with Strep Throat.. But so far so good!

                      VIOlight is a great concept of sanitizing but it needs much improvment.

                      CONS-- 1st, the bulb only lasted at most 2 weeks. 2nd, it's so difficult to clean the inner cup that I actually think it's worst putting my toothbrushes in there... it seems as though it would get more germs from the mold like residue at the bottom. It's funny, after reading the reviews on this product I decided to buy it anyway. I figured I would clean it often enough for "mold" not to grow. It doesn't matter. You need to clean this every few days and you will probably need a mini baby brush to get inside properly.

                      PROS-- it's compact so it fits neatly on the sink top and it's very simple to use. One press of the button.

                      Bottom line, it didn't serve it's purpose.
