Sony DVM-12CL Mini Digital Video Cleaning Cassette
7 September 2006
Summary: My DVD recorder was experiencing lines through the picture indicating it needed cleaned. After using the cleaning cassette for 10 seconds it was as good as new. Just what you like a product to do; do what it says it will do. Very happy with it.
Pros: Right price. Works very easy and does a great job.
Summary: I have owned Sony DCR-HC65 camcorder. Due to the quality of tape, my camcorder shows that the video head is dirty and should be cleaned as soon as possible. So I want to buy a cleaning cassette. In order to make it sure that the cassette can work well, I select the Sony-branded DVM-12CLD.
Summary: My Sony MiniDV was experiencing some playback issues after quite heavy use. After using the cleaning tape as directed, it now works fine. I read in several sorces that it is probably best not to mix MiniDV tape & tape cleaner brands (so I purchased the Sony cleaning tape).
