    This product was simple to use and did what it was supposed to. Had trouble watching some of my VCR tapes and after using the cleaning tape they worked

    I was excited to find this product on the shelf at Best Buy, but when I got home and tried it, I was disappointed. While the process was easy, I didn't notice a change in the picture quality when I played VHS tapes.

    Great video head cleaner. My VHS recorder has not been cleaned in a long time. After using this head cleaner my VHS tapes were very clear. I would recommend this product to anyone that still has a VHS player.

    After purchasing this product, it wouldn't work at all. Hearing parts rattling around in side, I disassembled it and found the ratchet mechanism broken. After a little Gorilla glue, I was able to make it work.

    Didn't work but it is an old VHS player. It may be another problem but we aren't sure. Always good to try the cheaper option first.

    We have several old VCR classic movies. Our grandchildren loved to watch them. The VCR needed to be cleaned. We tried this and wow it did the trick

    For those of us who still use VCRs, being able to find a wet/dry head cleaner that isn't NOS is a nice surprise. I used it and noticed an immediate improvement. It works the way it's supposed to.

    Sound distortion was so bad I almost gave up on transferring old family tapes to digital format until I got this cleaner. To my great relief, using the cleaner VHS tape restored audio and video to normal.

    I hadn’t used my VHS player in some time and the quality wasn’t what it used to be. This head cleaner spruced it up very nicely. Even my stills on pause were great. Worth the investment.

    We have a Video/CD player in our home and the VCR stopped working. Once I used this...it was working quite well and I've been able to play several cassettes without issue.

    I have an old VCR to PC unit that I have been archiving videos with. This helps keep the heads clean and the capture quality optimal. I'm glad to see they still make this stuff!

    I have bought several other VHS head cleaners in the past and most of the time it was all I do to get them to run through my VCR. This head cleaner has worked like a charm straight out of the box.

    It may work, but didn't improve my recording

    I videotaped a program on my TV. It broke up & was jumpy. I used the cleaner & taped another program. The playback was maybe slightly better, but not good enough. It didn't solve my videotape problem.

    After years of non use I pulled my old VCR out. Before using it I wanted to clean the heads. Played a video after cleaning and ran without an issue!

    As simple as that, it does the job, for the ones that still have the old VCR and want to watch old family videos, this is something you must have to maintain your VCR clean and protect your old movies.

    You can't find anything for VCR's hardly anywhere; was thankful I found the VCR Video Head Cleaner so hopefully our VCR's will last longer.

    Since I bought the Panasonic vhs to dvd digital tuner with intension of converting old personal vhs to dvd thought having a cleaner for the vcr portion of the unit would be great.

    The video recorder cleaner did a good job. The heads were badly covered with residue from old tapes, and my picture was mostly snow. After cleaning, I have a good picture. Very pleased.
