    I'm not sure if I really see a difference in the video quality after I run it through. It sounds like it's cleaning it, but whether or not it's actually doing anything is questionable,

    So glad that this product is available! It is very difficult to find products that are needed to use a VCR. Sometimes stores and sites forget that some people still have VCRs. Thank you Best Buy for offering these products to us!

    Wow! What a difference this little device has made. VHS tape’s are old and grainy. Cleaning up the player has improve the quality of these old tapes. I highly recommend spending the $10 for the simple device. That’s a lot cheaper than converting your tapes to DVDs

    I didn't actually use the cleaner yet but it reminded me to clean house and stop paying for costly repairs that took years. I can now finally watch my beloved Night Court tape. An excellent product.

    I still have a lot of valuable VHS tapes and a combination VHS/VCR Player that I use on both formats. I looked for months to find another VHS Cleaning kit but to no avail. That's when Best Buy came to the rescue, it was inexpensive and solved my maintenance problems!

    I pulled out my old VCR that I hadn't used in several years. It was extremely dusty and it needed to be cleaned out before I could even play a VHS tape. It worked just like intended and cleaned out my VCR's internal system, and the VHS tapes played perfectly.

    Got an older VCR ?, buy this- get it clean, and then start your transfer with software to saving on digital. Very good policy to get it clean prior to using it after years of no use.

    I used it to clean a vcr that hasn't been used in over a year. Who uses these things anymore anyway:) I had to use more drops than it required and had to play the cleaner about 3 times before the system would play a tape again. It worked and now all my keeper tapes are on DVD!

    I dug out my old VCR to start digitizing some of my VCR tapes. The heads on the VCR were dirty and I was not getting a good picture. After using this head cleaner the picture was great.

    I bought this thinking my VCR was toast that it wouldn't work, but I was surprised. It brought my SONY VCR back to life and made it run the movies so clear and even better than the day it was bought. I have to say BESTBUY I'm in love with this one.

    Best Buy is about the only place that carries VCR cleaners. Mine is 20+ years old and I wanted to keep it alive. This product is perfect for that task. VCR still works. Thank you.

    This head cleaner tape is way too short, it had to keep being rewound and replayed. And you need to snip the top of the solution bottle. It took a second for me to figure that out.

    Digitizing old VCR tapes on an old VCR. Prior to cleaning the VCR, could not read the tapes at all. Now we can run the tapes and digitize them. The right product for the right price.

    My VCR exhibited poor video on playback & needed the heads cleaned as I hadn't cleaned them in 10 years. Purchased this product & cleaned the heads once & all was good again. VCR was performing like new.

    I haven't used it yet and I had one before they do a great job cleaning the VCR head I would recommend if you have a VCR/DVD player pick this up especially if you have VCR tapes you want to record to DVD. it's a good investment and the price is cheep.

    I know this is old tech for most of you but transferring old videos to digital takes an older player and patience. It also requires cleaning old heads in a deck. This product works great!

    Caused problems with my VCR

    The tech working on my VCR informed me that the problems I was experiencing on my machine were caused by this type of product using liquid. Overall it is detrimental to a VCR and would eventually damage the heads.
