    Quip. Battery operated. $45 and $5 every quarter for new head and battery (US shipments - Intl shipping available). My dentist commented that my gums were improved and liked the brush. Reminds me of the subscription shaving service razors/blades - but I like the toothbrush. www.getquip.com

    Phillips Sonicare. Started using one on the advice of my periodontist and wouldn't return to the manual variety except when I'm travelling. I've also been using a Waterpic, which I much prefer to floss.

    Had to pay a few quid out at the dentist recently (Band C £250?ish) so decided to try an electric and picked up a Philips Oral B - not sure of the precise model but it was down from £75 to around the £20 mark and it's been brilliant. After a couple of weeks use there's definitely a noticeable improvement.

    Been using Corsodyl Original mouthwash which is far from smooth to taste but you can't argue with the results.

    I use a regular toothbrush before bed and in the morning I use the Phillips Sonicare. :)

    Aye - If a factory owner in China gets a contract to produce a fancy designer item for a big company then there has to be the temptation to make a few more of the same fancy item for the black market. They've got the specs, know-how and materials already and can probably get better terms on the black market.

    I have the diamond clean toothbrush and have been using it for the past few years..it's very good but I still prefer the Oral B electric toothbrush I had before, can't remember the model Oral B 5000 or something?!

    Not a clue what mine is called, but it's a Braun. A few days away using the 'manual', I truly can tell the difference when returning to the el. Just feels more efficient.

    Oral B 3000 rechargeable.

    We've had it a few years and the battery's becoming increasingly reluctant to hold a charge for more than a couple of days. It's more expensive to replace the battery pack than the brush, offensive to a make-do-and-mender.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Had a couple of Oral B's - they lost their ability to hold their charge in under a year. Dont know if I had lower end/cheaper versions - lost confidence in the brand after that.
