Usually, going generic is a great deal...not so with these! This replacement toothbrush head is not comparable to the name brand! It is louder - it doesn't have as much mobility and therefore, doesn't work as well! I just hope I can get my money back!
I purchased these about a month ago.
I decided to write a review because as a mom of 3, I like to save money. When shopping, my basket is 50% or more, filled with Great Value or Equate brand products. THIS product, however, is no "replacement" for name brand.
When you turn on the brush, it "sounds" like you are having your teeth drilled. Not to mention, you can hear this horrible sound in the other room! And yet, there is almost no vibration or movement from the brush itself.
You are better off clipping coupons and picking up the "real deal".
Purchased the toothbrush head replacements due to the lower price but had to throw them away within one week (once was able to get the REAL replacement heads). This brand is MUCH louder than the actual heads and when you press it against your teeth the vibration stops completely so your teeth don't feel as clean afterward. VERY ANNOYING!!!! Would not recomend this to a friend at all. Pay the extra money because it's worth it in this case.
I have an E series Philips Sonicare toothbrush and I LOVE it . I needed the replacements heads and found these right next to the Sonicare replacements. I was so pysched when I saw them and they were 10$ less than the name brand products. I have always had very good results with Great Value , but not with this product. They are extremely loud and I don't think my mouth feels as clean as it does when I buy the sonicare replacement heads. Because I don't believe is wasting money I will use both replacement heads then go back to the original product. So dissapointed!!!!!
Terrible. Purchased before I read the reviews. Don't do it. For as loud as it is, you'd think it's scraping the enamel off your teeth, but it really barely moves. All the reviews are accurate, don't think, 'well it's probably not that bad...' It is. Do not try these.
Like everyone I was looking for a cheaper option. I got a cheaper option, but not a good option. This knock off lacks the plastic ridge on the replacement head that slides into the channel on the rechargeable handle. Because of this the knock off head vibrates excessively inside the collar on the handle and makes a lot of noise.
Don't waste your money. Wish I had read the reviews first.
Only used it once and it was HORRIBLE!!! MAJOR PIECE OF JUNK!!!! Put on Sonicare toothbrush and like the other reviews, didn't fit properly, the base vibrated more than the bristles and it was EXTREMELY loud!!! I honestly only put it as a 1 star because there is no option for NO STARS!!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!! Worst $17 we've ever spent!!!! REALLY wish we could get our money back!!! I only wish we would have read the reviews before we bought!!
Would rate 0 stars if I could. Very loud. I could deal with that if they actually vibrated. Tried first head and it stopped vibrating with very gentle pressure on it. I thought perhaps it was a fluke so I tried the second brush head. It died even faster. Do NOT buy this. Wish three was some way I could get my money back. Usually Equate brand is good but not this time. Will be looking for the store manager soon to let him know my displeasure.
There isn't much of a price difference in these and the name brand, definitely go with the name brand. These didn't even get my teeth clean which is the point. I will be returning them.
Hopefully, you'll read these reviews BEFORE buying this really bad generic version of the Sonicare toothbrush head. It is very loud, and hardly moves at all. That translates to a very poor electric toothbrush. Stay away from this one.
Simply doesent work total junk very poor product
I am amazed that something this awful is being sold, generally knockoff replacements are at least decent, if not just as good as the original. These are garbage. I could live with the horribly loud noise, but not with the fact that your Sonicare toothbrush becomes ineffective using them. I am taking mine back and demanding a refund.
The noise level was so loud, it woke up my wife!!! Do not recommend!!
. . . Wish I had read the reviews first. It seems to be unanimous that this is an excessively loud and totally ineffective product. Back to the store, and I'll be skeptical of anything "Equate" from now on.
Wish I had read theses reviews before I made this purchase. Everything said about these brushes is TRUE! The noise is Horrid, the vibration seems it would shake your teeth loose although the brush action does nothing to clean your teeth. My advice...DON"T BUY!
i should of read all the reviews first! it vibrate the handle instead of the brush and its very very loud, very very terrible!!! I am going to spend the extra $$$ for the brand name!!!
Tried in my sonicare hx9500 and vibration is minimal & noisy. Hand brushing is just as effective. Not even close to original function.
The previous Equate version was noisy, but worked. These are noisy and all of the vibration is in the nut creating the noise. Almost no vibration at the brush head.. DON'T BUY THIS!!!
The sonic buzz was so loud with the walmart brand replacement I couldn't stand it.
Took out the second head and tried it and it was just as loud so i threw them out.
They gave me a headache just brushing my teeth.
