First off it is a large unit that looks like it is ready to do something and do it right. Compared to other automatic cleaning/repairing units, the DSR looks rugged and capable. Looks good just sitting on the shelf too!
A disc can be repaired on the right side while separately and independently cleaning a disc on the left side. Both sides operate independently meaning that one side does not run just because you are using the other side.
In operation the unit stays in place and won't mar your desk top thanks to an elastic ring around its base .
Behind the scenes there are a couple valuable features: Two little soft rollers inside each of the two lids help keep the proper pressure applied upon the disc label side so the cleaning surface does the best job possible without damaging the disc.
Unlike some of the other automatic cleaners I have used, the timer actually works! It absolutely turns on when you turn it on and absolutely turns off when the cycle is, or should be, over. Creating an electric timer circuit shouldn't have to be rocket science, but I guess to some it is.
In addition to the cleaning disk and the sanding or repairing disks installed in the machine, there is conveniently located in the rear of the case an easy open easy close door which stores the polishing disks, an extra cleaning disk, a bottle of Cleaning Solution (Isopropyl Alcohol), a tube of Repairing Solution, and a washable Polishing Cloth.
Does it WORK? In a word, Yes. If you have severely damaged discs, then you are probably going to need to buy a new disc, but for normal wear and tear, even that data blocking scratch that came from nowhere will be removed and the disc will look good and play well.
After the sanding or repairing step, the underside of the disc looks quite finely swirled. I mean Quite Finely. Step two Polishes the disc surface and leaves it quite cloudy looking but it looks quite promising. Place the disc into the left cleaning side of the unit and when it comes out you should be quite pleased. The surface will likely be free of scratches and smudges. The surface does not look like the virgin clear plastic on a new disc, but ends up looking very very slightly cloudy. Certainly you should have no problem what so ever from your video rental outlet for having screwed up their disc. In fact in my opinion, you are doing them a huge favor!
If what you want is a perfect super high quality, crystal clear, as good or better than new appearance to your disc, then you are spending WAY too little on this machine. You need to shell out several hundred to a couple thousand dollars for a commercial use machine using a "Wet Repair" system.
Get it. Odds are good that you will be pleased with your results.
Hi I was looking to update my original review but I cant find it so here goes my review. I ordered this one because there is this one guy who gave a convincing review he got me good, he must work for Maxell because this was the worst $40 I spent in a long time. On top of that when I opened the package the polishing liquid somehow burst & covered the compartment in goo! So I had this piece of junk that seems to only work with the fluid that was all dried up in the compartment the tube was practically empty it had escaped from the seam at the bottom. So I call Maxell & tell them this, and I asked for them to send me a replacement tube because this was totally not my fault, after putting me on hold for a few minutes he says they are going to send me a tube of the polishing liquid, he asks for my information & says I should have it in a week. I even received an email saying I would receive it. Guess what? 2 months later I still havent received anything. I am not even going to follow up with them because this "fixer" has destroyed many of my dvds. The tube had enough liquid left in it to do about 5 dvds & it messed all of them up. They went from being able to be played upto a certain scene, to totally not playable at all. Seriously dont be fooled by that one guy that reviews this thing like a miracle sent from heaven. Straight to the garbage!
1. it is a hands free CD/DVD buffing tool.
What I don't like about this product:
2. time consuming
3. a lot of ritual and procedure
4. doesn't repair scratches severe enough to cause playback problems
5. may become completely inoperative after about 30 or 40 disks.
The unit has two sides, one for buffing and one for cleaning. The procedure is complicated and time consuming and I can never remember how I'm supposed to use this thing without re-reading the instructions. I would give you the details, but I've misplaced the instructions. But I can summarize by telling you that the procedure involves running a three minute buffing cycle three times. In between cycles you're changing buffing heads and applying sprays and creams to the DVD. After the nine plus minutes of work is completed the DVD may still have scratches severe enough to interrupt playback. (You know, the usual Netflix stuff.)
I bought this unit to replace the manual hand crank Skipdoctor unit which broke under the rigor of my vigorous cranking. I recommend the Skipdoctor.
Update: The unit seized and will not power up. What an embarrassment for Maxell.
I would like to downgrade from two stars to one, but the star setting can't be edited.
Anyway, i heard some good things about the unit, and i have a ton of discs to repair, so i'll just have to buy a new one and be more careful, knowing how easy the gears can be stripped out.
