This is not a full review of the ProtectiveClean 5300 like you might be expecting.
This is because the 5300 is almost identical to the ProtectiveClean 5100, which I have reviewed in great detail here.
The key difference is the box contents, which I will explain in more detail in the paragraphs below.
The 5300 (HX6423/34) may work out marginally better value if you want the extra brush heads that come included.

ProtectiveClean 5300 Explained
Just the brush handle colour and 2 additional brush heads are what differentiate the ProtectiveClean 5100 and the 5300.
Technically they are otherwise the same.
The 5300, is the newer model and comes with 3 brush heads in total.
Those heads are:
- 1 x G2 Optimal Gum Care
- 2 x W2 Optimal White (also known as W DiamondClean)
The 5100 comes with just 1 x G2 Optimal Gum Care.
The 5300 is available with a black gray handle colour only, whereas the 5100 comes in black gray, white mint, and white light blue.
As far as I am aware, no other box contents differences or technical differences exist.
The box contents of the 5300 is:
- Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5300 electric toothbrush
- 1 x G2 optimal gum care brush head
- 2 x W2 Optimal White/W DiamondClean brush head
- Travel case
- Charging stand
At the time of writing the 5300 has a suggested retail price is $99.99 but sells on average for around $87.
Compare this to the ProtectiveClean 5100’s retail price of $89.99 but the typical selling price of $80, and the extra 2 brush heads are costing approximately $3.50 each.
Normally you would pay around $10 per additional brush head.
It is likely that the 5300 will be marginally better value if you particularly need or want the 2 extra W DiamondClean brush heads that come included, however prices are always subject to change.
