    Pretty Decent Laser Lens Cleaner

    I purchased an Insignia Laser Lens Cleaner so that I could clean my CD player and the CD/DVD drives in my computers, and I believe this laser lens cleaner did a pretty decent job. I've never bought a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner before, so I didn't really know what to expect. However, I was surprised at how easy and intuitive it is to use. The laser lens cleaner plays in multiple different languages and cleans your CD/DVD drive very, very quickly (it surprised me at how fast it was). You need to put it into the CD/DVD drive that you would like to clean and play it on track 2 after you start (track 1 isn't in English). It will tell you to wait for the beep noise that comes later in the track, and when you hear the beep noise, you need to switch to track 9. Track 9 tells you that the laser lens cleaner has finished, and if you want, you may listen to some music that is already on the CD. That's all there is to it. I wish there was a better way for you to notice if the laser lens cleaner actually did clean the CD/DVD drive and how well it did clean it, as it only appears to have improved performance marginally, to be honest, but I believe it did a pretty solid cleaning job. Overall, I don't regret my purchase, and I would recommend this to anybody who needs to clean their CD/DVD drives (whether in a computer or an actual CD player).

    Mildly Disappointed

    This is my third Sony TV over a period of 30 years. I have had the XBR-49X800E for about 3 weeks. Last week everyone in Milwaukee had to rescan for their over the air channels. At the end of this procedure 50 digital channels were found. After hitting the "next" button it switched from 50 digital channels to only 5 analog channels. There are no analog channels left in Milwaukee. Repeated the procedure 5 times with same results. Called Sony tech support. I was told the problem was not with my new TV. Was told that all the TV transmitters in Milwaukee must have gone off line at the same moment. My jaw dropped, could not believe what I was hearing. Then tech support recommended a factory reset. This did resolve the issue but created extra work reentering info for Netflix and other apps. Sure hope I will not be having to do factory resets on a regular basis. On a positive note the 4K picture is incredible. I upgraded from a Sony KD-34XBR970.

    Buy it if you play a lot of CDs

    I listen to a lot of CDs that I buy and take out from the public library. For a long time I thought it was overused CDs that were distorting my CD player. I later learned that the laser lens gets distorted and clouded and it needs to be regularly cleaned -- safely. When I bought this product, problem solved and I can regularly listen to CDs without distortion. My only problem is the disk cleaner itself wears out but it's hard to tell when, so at some point it just stops working. It would be helpful for some guide on the disk (an audio message) or in the instructions how many times you can use it would improve the product. That said, I will continue to buy it.

    We alll know what these do by now. I still have qn old Denon 18-Bit 5 VD Carousel Player FROM THE EARLY '90s and despite being built like a tank and having a fantastic analog stage, it, like many early carousel players of the era sometimes misses that their is a disc in one of the trays and skips to the next one. A regular cleaning with this sort of disc will eliminate such problems if done regularly. This one had the best price and I can't tell any difference between it and any of the other more expensive laser lens cleaner discs that I have used over the years. No reason not to buy this one and save a few bucks.

    3D Blue-ray player was struggling to read any disc including audio, DVD and 3D Blue-ray. It was suggested to me, in store, that this might solve the problem. I ran it several times and it did then play one DVD before reverting to rejecting all discs. Perhaps my player has got lots of dust and, because we had not used it for some time, it had become hardened and incapable of being removed by the small brushes on this cleaner. I have only given the product 2 stars as it did not do what I was expecting. Maybe it would work better if used on a regular basis before dust, etc. builds up. I am going to have to purchase a new blue-ray player!

    Unable to Determine if Lens Cleaner Works

    I purchased the lens cleaner as an alternative to having to buy a new Blu-ray player. After discussing the disc reading issue that I was having with my Blu-ray player with a Best Buy associate, the thought was that my issue might be related to residue on the lens. Consequently, I purchased the lens cleaner. The problem is that when the cleaning process does not provide detailed information as to what is being done to clean the lens. After a few minutes you get a message indicating that the process has been completed and you are unable to determine if it worked as you cannot see the before and after condition of the lens.

    Only used once so far, but seems to do the job

    i regularly get books on cd from the library. My cd player was skipping on a particular book so I was looking to clean the player in my car. This was the only item in stock at the store. I have only used it once, I started a different book after using the cleaner, and it has not skipped, so it may have done the trick. Not sure if it was the CD or my player. I am giving it a 4 out of 5 because I have not used it enough to say it does an excellent job, and the new CD may be cleaner than the one from the library that gave me issues.

    It makes up for human error.

    I use my blu ray player a lot. And I don't always maintain it as much as I should. It got to the point where my movies were skipping , resetting and just freezing up. I had an older DVD cleaning disk, but my machine would not accept it. I bought this in hopes of avoiding buying a new player. Wow ! What a difference this cleaner makes. I found the on screen instructions easy to use and my player now works like new. No more problems of any type. Simple, efficient and a great value. Best money I've spent in a long time. Definitely try this before replacing your blu ray player.
