The basics

The Philips Diamond Clean 300 may be incredibly expensive when it comes to toothbrushes, but you only get one set (OK, well two!) set of teeth. This rechargeable solution features diamond shaped bristles to get to those hard to reach areas, and it comes with a host of charging options – from a home charger, to portable charging case, to a USB charger.

Following on from the review in the show where the Diamond Clean and Oral B both came out on top, there are a couple of points I want to mention that may affect your purchase decision as I've owned both of them over the last few years. I've had quite a few Oral Bs but have always been disappointed with the battery life so when my current 5000 died I decided to opt for the Diamond Clean. The Diamon Clean is considerably more expensive than the Oral B but looks better and feels nicer in the hand. It's a definite premium product, the charging glass looks nice and the travel case is very sturdy and doubles as the charger (via USB). However, there are two main downsides for me: 1) The heads do not have any means of differentiation so, in a family bathroom where the handle is shared, you need to ensure you keep your heads separate and remember whose is whose. The Oral B has small plastic coloured rings that snap onto the bottom of the brush head; a very simple, but effective idea. 2) The heads do not last very long. Apparently, they should last for three months but, after only six weeks of brushing twice a day for two minutes, the blue indicator bristles are now white and the bristles have started to splay out. Both of these issues should be relatively simple for Philips to sort out but, at the moment, when my Diamond Clean battery finally gives up, I think I may be returning to the Oral B.
