Costco: Sonicare Diamondclean Brush Heads 5-pack - $39.99

Price:
39.99
Expiry:
July 30, 2017
This may be covered in the weekly Costco threads later today, but since this rarely goes on sale, (especially at places other than Costco) thought I would create a separate thread for it anyway. Costco has the 5-pack Sonicare Diamondclean toothbrush heads on sale this week, $10 off, to bring the price down to $39.99 Sale is on this week and next.

This doesn't help that woman on the Oral B commercials that is clearly in love with her toothbrush, ha ha.

Yup. As long as it does not have a screw base.

Da boot
Has anyone tried the Adaptive Clean heads? Are they really that much better than diamond?

I prefer the Adaptive Clean. It seems to contour the tooth surfaces better, so I feel it seems to clean between and around the teeth better. The main advantage of diamondclean is whitening which I don't really care about. At some point Costo switched to the DiamondClean packs years ago, and I was pretty disappointed with the Diamond brush heads. It's preference, but if Costco sold both I would choose the other type.

Any good aftermarket alternatives? I know there are cheap ones from Ali/ebay but I'm unsure how safe those are. (Ie: what are they using for the nylon bristles)

I just got my DiamondClean toothbrush from the Prime Deal and it comes with three heads, so I'm going to give them all a try to compare them back to back.

The other interesting thing is that the DiamondClean brush feels a bit different than the Series 3 brush we are also using. I can't pin it down, but the oscillations feels a bit stronger in the normal cleaning mode. I thought all of the Sonicare brushes are exactly the same cleaning action except for features.

I thought I was imagining things, but If I look at the brush while the brush is working...... I think the brush head on the Diamondcare handle oscillates back and forth at a slightly wider arc than the 3 series. I wonder if there is some way to prove or disprove this theory. Maybe I need to figure out a way to take a picture of the brush and measure how much the brush oscillates.

Damn, I just bought these last week at 49.99....
I got another pack a couple of weeks ago too. You can get your money back if you can endure the line up or go at a non peak time

To add to the anecdote...I find that when I am replacing my brush (Flexcare Platinum), the new brush is always "stronger" in its vibrations compared to the old one. Not sure if this is due to wear on the motor or battery degradation but I notice what you're describing even within the same model...

Ask yourself if you really want to be the guy who bought a >$100 brush and is now trying to save a few dollars on replacement heads?
Nobody can guarantee those cheap clones and when brushing is something you do multiple times a day is it really worth the gamble? Yeah I get the fact they're all probably made in the same factory in China but at least with the official heads there's probably some real QC going on
