    Great product for doing simple fast light scratch

    This disc cleaner works great at cleaning light scratches on CD's, DVD's and most game discs. very simple to use and straight forward, and as long as you keep the disc wet will do a great job. Directions tell you to make 2 full passes but Ifound that after 2 it leaves lines but on a 3rd and 4th pass the lines even out. But leave a "duller finish" on the disc. For that fix I use a tried and true method of approach of using a little regular creamy peanut butter to "wax" the surface afterwards(natural oils in it give a smooth clean reflective sheen). found that the repair kit works for around 15 or so discs before the very light abbrasive sandpaper in it wears out which is fine because the price is hard to beat for what you are able to do (much cheaper then buying a new movies or games). The only bad things I have noticed about it is that it does not work for any type of mini discs such as Nintendo Game Cube games or Playstation PSP games due to location of where the spindal hole is in the disc( cleaner pulls discs in which puts the holes in the middle of the buffing wheel). the Buffing square could be a little larger and the ability to buy replacement wheels would be nice as well. Over all I give it 4 stars for being easy to use and easy on the wallet compared to replacing a game or movie.

    I purchased this for a DVD that had a surface scratch. The scratch was not deep (or so I thought). I followed the instructions to a "T" on how to repair a disk. It says it might take a few times to get all of the scratches out (understandable). I did it once, put it in the disk player and waited until the part where it started skipping (having noted the time previously on a paper) After the first round of repair, I gained 3 seconds before the disk player froze. I tried it again, again, again, and again.... After 10 "repairs" I thought, "For sure it will work this time" But at last, I was never able to achieve a smooth playing movie. I tried 4 different disk players, 2 laptops and a Blue ray player.... same result on each device. I am sure it works, but for some reason, it would not work for me.

    Avoid. Sounds good in theory, horrible in practice

    To sum this up, the product has potential that it can never realize. I tried 5 different discs that have been through the ringer with a trio of toddlers. 3 cds, 1 dvd, and 1 blu ray. In all cases it didn't improve the quality of the discs (skips still occurred where they were before using it). Also in all cases, it left weird scuffs all the way around the disc. So not only did I have scratches, but now I have lined scuffs all around the disc, making the disc look worse honestly. Build quality is cheap and feels like I could break it at any moment. I probably would've been better off just replacing the discs.

    Horrible product with disastrous results

    Usually Insignia products are a decent value for the price, unfortunately that cannot be said for this product. Cheap and flimsy feeling, this disc "repair" system did the exact opposite to my discs and etched light scratches around the entire surface of the disc (I read instructions multiple times and followed them carefully). They were still playable after this however, but still had the same scratches/imperfections in the surface of the media that caused skipping and freezing. Long story short, this did nothing but make the problem worse and repair nothing. I would give this zero stars if I could.

    Does a fair job of repairing scratched disk's

    I have a few moderately scratched cd disk's as well as a scratched DVD. One disk has been scratched for years and I had simply given up on it. The Insignia scratch repair kit did an excellent job of repairing the disk,however two other disk after several attempts to repair them failed.Although some tracks that were previously unplayable were now indeed playable,other tracks are simply a loss casualty. One scratched DVD had some improvement,but all in all it also had to deemed a loss. So it seems that Insignia Manual disk repair system is a hit and miss situation.

    I had a DVD that wouldn't play. The play surface had some smudged finger prints and light scratches. I assumed that was the problem. I removed the Insignia Manual Disc Repair System from the box, read the manual, sprayed the play surface of the disk, inserted the disk in the unit, turned the crank until the disk had made one full revolution (many turns of the crank), and played the disk. It played like a new one. This unit WILL NOT remove deep scratches. It is not designed to do that.

    I recently came across several CD's and DVD's from years ago that hadn't been well cared for. They all had scratches, some seemingly deep. A few even had 'divets.' I bought this Disc Repair System in the hopes of reviving at least a few of them and it turned out I was able to repair nearly all of them! Not only does it do an awesome job on repairs, making the CD's and/or DVD's appear and play like new, it does a fantastic job of cleaning.

    Fine HDTV in all aspects, at the right price!

    I visited Best Buy IN DeWitt, NY, to look for an HDTV without knowing much about what was available. Salesperson Linda O'Sullivan was helpful in every way, from demonstrating various models and explaining their upsides and downsides to finally helping me decide on this 2016 SONY Brava at a great price. I have never dealt with a better salesperson anywhere. LInda is a Gold Mine for Best Buy in DeWitt, NY!
