I bought the Philips Sonicare Essence e5500 Electric Toothbrush for my husband last year for Christmas. This was the second electric toothbrush he's had. The first one lasted almost five years, so we weren't unhappy to need to replace it. This one is less than a year old. Just this past weekend, the toothbrush stopped holding a charge. My husband tried everything. He ven took it completely apart and tried to clean it, thinking that perhaps something had "jammed up the works." That didn't help either. The toothbrush would just emit little buzzing sounds, but make no action. These toothbrushes aren't cheap and should definitely last more than 10 1/2 months! I'm very disappointed.
On a positive note, my husband liked the toothbrush when it worked. He liked the 2-minute timer that let him know when he had actually brushed his teeth 2 minutes. I use a battery-operated toothbrush and would "time" my brushing to coincide with his -- so we both benefited from the timer.
In the past I have used manual toothbrushes, battery driven toothbrushes, and electric toothbrushes, in my opinion, by far the Philips Sonicare Essence e5500 Electric Toothbrush has been excellent! I wish I could have learned about the product earlier; It would have spared me allot of time. First, the design of the toothbrush and the carrying case makes for easy accessibility and use. I also like the fact that you can take the toothbrush with you on long business trips and the battery last a long time. On one business trip which lasted three days, I assume the battery would eventually run out. I have to say this was not the case. You cannot go wrong with this purchase.

This toothbrush is handy, easy to use, leaves my mouth feeling clean, massages the gums. If I forget to recharge after the evening cleaning, it still works full power the next morning. I am happy with my choice of this Philips Sonicare Essence e5500 Power Toothbrush and would recommend it to a friend.
