Philips Sonicare Flexcare Electric Toothbrush HX6912-21 $99 (RRP $219) @ Shaver Shop

700

A popular deal in the past, this toothbrush is now $99 again at Shavershop, both in store and on-line. I just picked one up today in Melbourne.

Not sure on the end date - but possibly around Mother's Day. Not sure how it compares to Oral-B (the heads are more expensive, but generics are available - not sure on their performance though), but I've had these recommended to me by family and friends.

    Wife got me this toothbrush for Xmas. A huge jump up from the Oral-B 3000 (i think) I was using. A whole different level, would never go back.

      A night and day difference like replacing a DAC!

  • Was just looking for a new one, the battery on mine is done after about 5 years. Got really good use out of it

  • +9

    These work fairly well in terms of a head replacement option. They don't last quite as long, but you get 20 of them for almost the price of 1 branded. I end up replacing them every 6 weeks or so. They give a decent clean.

      They have excellent reviews on amazon.com. Thanks for posting - I will get a pack!

      Legend, thank you

    • Cheers. got a pack to go with the brush

  • Does this have a pressure sensor?

      No

    SHAVE10 code for another $10 off

      Cheers. works after registering.

  • I don't know if mine is a rare case but the battery runs out very fast. Have to recharge twice a week.

    • +2

      I charge mine more or less monthly with 2 brushes per day. Seems like yours may be faulty.

  • Doesn't seem to come with the UV brush head cleaner, bit of a shame.

    • According to the department of infectious diseases (or something like that) in the USA they don't seem to matter much anyway. So I don't think it's a big loss.

    Cheers OP. Got one to try it out

    Just got one, Free Shipment with Shipster . Thanks

  • My wife and I have never owned an electric toothbrush.. do most people just have one between two people and swap heads? Or do you buy one each? TIA

    • This guy is asking the real question here.

    • +1

      You buy one and then you choose which half of the head to use: front or back.

    • +1

      Nope, one each. Partly because we would be waiting around for the other person, but also it’s just too much of a pain to be swapping them around.

      Would never go back to a manual brush. Even have a cheap ALDI one for travel- they sell them every once and awhile.

    • +2

      One brush, with different heads is fine.

  • expect to buy a new toothbrush after 12 months (50% chance)

    • +3

      With a 2 year warranty why would you have to do that.

    • Agreed I gave up on the Panasonic brushes. Unreliable AF.

      I had a Sonicare toothbrush fail after 2 yrs 1 month. It wouldn't charge as indicated by a blinking led. Phoned Phillips support and they asked for a copy of the receipt. They were going to replace my toothbrush but I told them that when i turn the toothbrush on and place it on the charger it doesn't turn off indicating that the charger is probably at fault. They agreed and sent me a new charger within the week. Has been going strong for months now.

      • I should have made the effort to call Philips and find the receipt too. I've had two Sonicare Diamond Clean fail on me on roughly 2.5 years. After spending $400+ I am a little unsure about Electric tooth brushes and will continue to brush manually with my $2 tooth brush.

  • This or the Oral-B Smart 7 which is priced at $130?

    Just switched from my old Flexcare to the Xiaomi Oclean SE - like the Xiaomi much better. Cheaper heads too!

    • Very happy with my Oclean SE also, great product. Also cheaper.

    • @OpenHand - I have a flexcare about 4 years old.

      How do you find the Xiaomi better?

      • Part of it is that my Flexcare was falling apart, it didn't take new heads well. I had to ditch it in any case because it started turning on in the cupboard and going bananas in the middle of the night.

        Xiaomi is a bit neater, feels like a nicer product, more waterproof, the brushing is as good or better. The charger takes up way less space, battery lasts longer I believe. Cheaper than the Philips and genuine replacement heads are much cheaper. There's an app which I haven't used and won't bother with. My only issue is that the thing is a bit slippery in the hand sometimes.

  • This is an awesome toothbrush.

  • The brush heads for these are expensive, $15 each.

    You can buy 6 Oral-B ones for $27.
    https://www.shavershop.com.au/oral-b/oral-b-cross-action-too...

    The Oral-B toothbrush is $159 and a better deal once you consider the brush head cost.

    • you can buy cheaper 3rd party heads if you want

      think there was like 10 or 20 heads available for 10 bucks on amazon linked elsewhere

  • How does this compare to Oral B 9000 series?

    • The Oral B is made in Germany.
      Philips is made in China.

    • Oral b 100x over

  • +1

    thanks.
    bought one

  • $10 cheaper than Philips staff discount lol, real bargain

  • Flexcare or Diamond care which one is better

    • Same body (motor is the same) but Diamond care comes with the inductive charger.

      I think Flexcare comes with more heads.

  • Is it worth upgrading from a philips vitality $25 dollar unit?

  • this model is finishing soon - new model should be out next month

  • Can someone tell the benefits of this rrp $200+ brush over some generic electric toothbrush?

    • Cheaper brushes tend to have low powered motors with rotating heads. They're arguably better than brushing with normal brushes.

      These more expensive sonicare brushes shake/vibrate with a very high intensity. The difference between this and the cheaper sonicare is speed (motor with twice as much power, Up to 62000 brush movement/min) . Their cheaper (but still expensive) electric brushes are exactly half as powerful as this model. On top of that you've got specific brush heads, different modes available etc.

        Ordered one, thanks man!

    • I've just upgraded from a cheaper model to the Oral B 90003D (an Ozbargain special, of course).
      Amazing difference. Teeth feel cleaner all the next day. Hard to believe, but true.
      It's definitely worth it.

  • I have 2 and the shafts were broken after about 2 years. After the first one was broken, I thought maybe because I often removed the brush head to clean the shaft. So, with the second one, I hardly removed the brush head. However, after roughly 2 years, it's broken.
    That's a surprise because my oral b brushes never had that problem. They only died because battery didn't take charge anymore, not because of broken shaft.
    But because Philip Sonicare is much better than oral b I will get a new one. They're cheaper at Costco with the double package is around $150 (I can't remember exactly). Only one problem: colours are white and pink. Buying from Costco means when it's broken again I can return it easier than buying from shaver shop.

    • Double pack is $129 at Costco (1 white, 1 pink)
