      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.

      Works Fine So Far

      I tried the DIY route of rehabbing discs with sand paper and rubbing compound and only managed to make my discs cloudy, this device however, has done a seviceable job. I'm archiving my CD collection and attempting to get good rips with Exact Audio Copy (not lossless, but 200Kbps+) so I can put my libarry on thumb drives and listen in the car. EAC will take forever on damaged discs, taking in excess of 5+ hours to rip. In any case, one disc had this issue, ran it through the device the recommended 2x, then put some rubbing compound on it -- get it from a place like AutoZone -- and it worked like a charm. Ripped the disc without issues. So if I can repair several discis with this unit, it'll be worth the $30, as the DIY method was at least $15, was a lot more labor intensive, and didn't work. So yeah, if you have discs with light scratches, it's probably worth giving this a look!

      I would recommend this for minor scratches. It comes with distilled water as a lubricant which does not help at all for scratch removal. For heavier scratches I added some buffing compound to the disc surface and it helped much better. It started working on some of the deeper scratches. Now this will leave scratches to the surface when being used, but not scratches that will effect disc reading. I will warn you, if you have a disc that has a small crack on the center hub, this will put enough force on the disc to actually cause that crack to spread. I just found this out on an irreplaceable data disc I have. I was trying to save the data off of it before the crack got worse and this scratch reader out enough force on the disc surface to cause the crack to spread

      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.

      Works good for repairing discs

      I was unsure of the product at first so to it's rather flimsy looking construction, but I was vary impressed by the results. Repairing discs with this is extremely easy and non time consuming. I have repaired many discs that were unrecognizable with this great product. I would have given 5 stars but one piece of the repair kit is slightly offset and makes an unpleasant sound, it is mostly due to the material used to make it being kinda flimsy. All in all a great purchase that saved me money.

      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.
