Better reach for a better clean.
Gently Cleans Teeth with Sonic Technology
Unlike a manual toothbrush, the Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 uses powerful Sonic technology to clean teeth with up to 31,000 movements per minute. These sweeping motions drive fluids deep into the tight spaces between your teeth and along your gum line, resulting in a cleaner, healthier mouth.
Angled Neck and Contoured Bristles for Comfortable Use
With a unique angled neck and contoured bristles that correspond to the natural shape of your teeth, the Sonicare Essence 5300 delivers a thorough, comfortable brushing experience. The angled neck provides optimum reach for the bristles, which have extra-soft rounded ends that gently massage your gums and go deep between teeth to remove plaque.
Easy-Start and Smartimer Simplify Brushing
The Essence 5300 makes it easy to care for your oral health. You need to apply only light pressure when using this toothbrush--the Essence 5300 will do the brushing for you. For further convenience, the Sonicare Essence 5300 features an Easy-start option that gently increases the toothbrush's power over the first 12 uses, so you can gradually adjust to the Sonic technology.
The Essence 5300 also features a Smartimer to keep you on track. The Smartimer encourages you to brush for a full two minutes, the time recommended by dental professionals. If you wish to pause or stop brushing during the two-minute cycle, just press the power button. If you press the power button again within 30 seconds, the Smartimer will pick up where you left off.
Two Weeks of Power on a Single Charge
After a full 24-hour charge, the Essence 5300 will provide approximately two weeks of typical use (two minutes of brushing, twice a day). A convenient recharge indicator on the brush displays the available battery life and blinks when you need to recharge.
Because the Essence 5300 can last two weeks between charges, you can leave its charger at home for most of your travels. A travel case and hygienic travel cap are included for further on-the-go convenience.

So this one is my third Sonicare toothbrush and they've gone back and redesigned the first one; this is the best one so far. I'm not sure about the recharger design (it's kind of flimsy, doesn't "grasp" the handle very well) but I really like the toothbrush and how it's brushes are attached.
According to Philips own website, this model has the "Quadpacer" feature (a 30-second interval timer) which I find quite useful, esp early in the morning when I'm not quite awake. See goo dot gl slash 3Nbf2
However, as other reviews have noted, it does not. The 5361 is their entry-level version, and the interval timer is not present.
I called Philips Customer Service to enquire, and learned that the HX5700 model is the lowest (least-expensive) model equipped with the interval timer. To their credit, the CSR immediately offered to send me a 5700 handle at no charge.
So full marks to Philips Customer Service for doing the right thing. Boos and hisses to their product engineers for the disposable design. All that's wrong with my old 9500 is a worn-out NiMH cell which should be easy to replace. And brickbats to their web marketing staff who misrepresent the features & functions on the Philips website.
- make sure you are aware of the brush head cost. its not cheap
- there is an empty area on the main handle when removing the head for replacement. expect some very hard to remove dirt (not sure how it is building up). dont worry about it. its very minor issue so go ahead and buy it (even my dentist prefers soniccare to other brands)

For electric toothbrushes, Sonicare is simply the best. They are more expensive than most other brands, but you get what you pay for. You'll get many years of thankful teeth. :)Published 6 months ago by dragonflight777

The original Philips sonic brush. I would recommend this over any of their newer releases. Good battery life, excellent brushing and cheap refills of the brush head.Published 21 months ago by Raj
