FYI to those interested who do not care about the possibility of mold under the brush head (it's really easily avoidable by cleaning inside with any regularity or just leaving the head off to dry after brushing).

This is a YMMV, but Walmart sells the Philips Sonicare Elite in a Sonicare Essence box for $5 more than this post. Here's a link to my post about it a few months ago. Nobody seemed interested, but if you're here looking at the Sonicare Essence on Amazon, this may be worth giving a try to score a Sonicare Elite.

Same here. My sister-in-law had the same brush and complained about the mold. I donn't even take special care of mine and I've never gotten any kind of mold. I use mine in the shower and wipe it dry every time. Unscrew it, still no mold. Guess we are lucky!

Those that complain about water getting in and causing mold...after you brush your teeth and rise your brush, wipe it off with a towel, thus no water runs down it to get in.

Have had mine for 5 years no problem.....don't be lazy and then complain

Is that the only reason? Saw people on Amazon complaining of that but...just unscrew the brush after use to air dry? Of course I would prefer not to have to do that but it's a very minor "inconvenience".

In my experience yes, so for $20 you could probably get some use out of it

Me too. Unfortunately it recently got trashed for the series 2, which I'm liking much more.

These do get moldy and nasty. Best to get the the newer model. Seriously nasty stuff. Really really yucky germy stuff.

Agreed, it's a very minor inconvenience. I just bought this back in November (same price) to replace my 10-year old Sonicare that was no longer holding a full charge. I had a lot of replacement brush heads for that model still, so I chose to stick with it. All I do is separate the brush head, collar, and base while rinsing under the faucet, leave the brush head & collar on a cloth to air dry and dry the base before putting it back on the charger. It takes maybe 30 seconds after each brushing to do. This is my third, the first one lasted over 10 years as well. Just be aware, this particular model does not have the quadpacer (beeps you every 30 seconds) so that was disappointing because I thought they all did. But, I have a clock with a second hand in my bathroom so nbd.

If you want an almost identical model that notifies you every 30 seconds, see my post immediately above yours. It's YMMV, but it's a great deal if it works out (and it's worked for me twice).
