FYI it's not a very good toothbrush compare to other sonicares. I had this before and it's not as powerful as Diamond CLean.

It's very similar to the Costco one. Just slightly different but still not worth $100.

However, if you can get extra points, 2 free movie ticks ( $20 value ) and the $20 coupon ( Shopper and Superstore had it for a while and expires until Jan 17th), it will be worth it.

Hi Astrotrain,

Can you plz compare your experience between this model and Oral B 5000? I am not sure if I should switch over from Oral-b to Sonicare, the Philips brush heads are too expensive when compared to Oral-B brush heads.

I only switched over becus this model was on sale from Amazon and offered more accessories than my 5000 kit.
It included 2 chargers than 1 but the main difference between this Platinum model and the 5000 I have is:

1) The platinum can work overseas without a power converter. I had to lug around a voltage converter when I used my 5000 last year in China. 110 volt to 240 volt for the Sonicare.
2) The brush heads for Sonicare is larger therefore seems a more thorough brush and my teeth feel more clean. Using the brush heads of the Oral Bs you need to be more precise and not lazy in covering all your teeth becus the head is small but then again you can cover each tooth on the 5000 better than the Sonicare.
3) the Battery on the Sonicare uses Lithium the OralBs use Nic, if you have been using Oral Bs for years you know the batt starts to wane after a year, the indicator becomes a joke, sometimes it shows 3 bars but you feel the head spinning much slower, sometimes only 2 bars and it feels more energetic. Braun refuses to change them to lithium so people have to replace their brushes every couple of years. The Sonicare I can get 1 week since I brush 3 times daily on deep clean. There is no memory effect on the batt, when it is low 1 bar the motors still spin like it was full charge. Not so with Oral B again. You should know this as well.

Only had it for 2 weeks so can't speak for durability on the Sonicare. I just hope so of these clone brush heads I got from Ali function properly like my clone Oral B ones, that was the same impediment I felt as well from switching from B to Sonicare.

Thanks a lot for the detailed explanation,

I have been using the Oral-b only for a month, so-far I am very satisfied with the charge and also its cleaning function(considering that I switched from manual brush to Oral-b). Again thanks, for pointing out about the voltage issues( as I will be traveling frequently to Asian countries) and also the Lithium vs Nic battery.

I am making the switch to Sonicare and will reach out to Amazon to check their return policy, if not I might send it to Oral-B for a full refund. Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

$92 after tax when using $20 off coupon. $20 value of the movie tickets and $7 value of the extra brush head means total price came out to $65. Worth it at that price. Didn't have a great points coupon but if you do that makes it a hotter deal.

Thanks OP, pretty great deal!

For what it's worth, looks like I got the last one at the SDM on Queen's Quay downtown Toronto.

I didn't see any coupons in the store, but I had printed and walked with the $15 coupon. Had absolutely no problem getting it to work. Sometimes I think some RFDers go into stores feeling really entitled. Being friendly goes a long way.

Do these use the same brush heads as the $30 (well $10 after coupon) sonicare from Walmart? I know this platinum has more modes (speed of vibration?), but isn't one of the modes on this the same as what you get from the $10 one? So lets say you only use that mode on the platinum, since the brush head is the same, is there really any difference cleaning-wise between the two?

Also, what's better, vibrating (Sonicare) or rotating (OralB)? Each says their own is superior so...

It's in the BC flyer. The ad is on the bottom section of page 12. It's pretty tiny though, easy to miss. The ad just says 50% off Philips Sonicare Flexcare, not $99.99

Cleaning wise, the Walmart brush should be the same. The difference between the two would be the design (this one is sleeker), the build quality, and most importantly the battery. Lithium ion vs nicad on the cheaper brush. They can both use the same brush heads.

Walmart one show stats on 31000 strokes per minute while these higher end units show 62000 strokes per minute.

Personally, I'd just stick with my 10$ one. How much 'cleaner' will this help my teeth? That's what my dental cleanings are for!

I have a 12000 point on $50 coupon valid only on Jan 9 and I'm very tempted to get in on this deal.

This toothbrush looks like it uses a 18650 cell with 2 rods soldered onto it. Which is way way way better than my Oral B 5000 which cannot stay alive away from the charger anymore. Especially if it's exposed to the cold.

Why would you assume those people who had their printed coupon denied were entitled and unfriendly? It's well known some stores will not accept printed coupons due to risk of fraud, especially stores like SDM which are individually owned.
