Works great for me. Dec 27, 2007
Been using this stuff for a couple years. Works great for me. I use it different than the instruction. Find a flat surface, lay a bundle of tissue on it, place the disk scratched face up. Place a couple drops of #1 abrasive on the disk and immediately start wiping with some pressure radially outward (you don't have to wait 5 minutes). Keep working your way around the disk until the solution is dry (about 5 minutes). Spray once with #2, and using a clean TISSUE, continue wiping VERY GENTLY radially outward until #2 dries. Try the disk. If it doesn't work, repeat all the above until it does. This really does work, but it can take some elbow grease and repeated tries depending on the severity of the scratches. I've had a LOT of scratched disks, and I haven't found one yet that I couldn't fix with this.

Not disappointed Mar 23, 2000
By T. Alexander
This product repaired a completely useless, out-of-print CD-ROM that I desperately needed. It was worth the price just for that. I was also able to repair a favorite music CD. I'm now tapping my foot to "I Can't Wait."
I did have to do it twice. The second time, I let it dry for much longer than the instructions say. It was nearly dry by the time I wiped the paste off. When I do this, the results are much better.

Worth it for those small scratches Apr 03, 2009
By Robert Freeze
Do your kids love their favorite DVDs and video games to death? Mine sure do. It always seems like it is their favorite ones that stop working first, one look to the back and sure enough there is all kinds of crud on the back, finger prints, scratches...sometimes cheese! Today was one such day... Super Mario Galaxy has stopped working...
A few years back we picked up one of these Maxell CD scratch repair kits. The reviews here are somewhat mixed but for us the stuff really has worked, though I have had to use it a lot more liberally than the directions state. I normally cover the whole bottom of the CD with a thin coating of the step 1 scratch remover, then I let it dry completely (more than 5 min) before I clean it off as directed and then I move on to the step 2 cleaner, polisher & sealer.
Try it - for the random small scratches that come from childlike love - it has worked great for us.

This is not bad Jan 27, 2000
By tami morse
This actually works pretty good. I had to re-do a disc after messing it up but if you follow instructions, it takes care of minor scratches so the disc is playable again.

I guess it depends... Nov 03, 2008
By G. C. Caparas
I don't know about all the people who've given this one star, it's pretty decent. I have some ridiculously old, scratched-up PS1 games and I don't really have the money to buy them all over again. A lot of the cutscenes in the games would skip, freeze entirely... a lot of times, the sound was just gone.
Though this doesn't really make the product good as new, it makes it at least more playable. I can finally hear the voices in Mega Man Legends! So I'm pretty pleased with that. Keep in mind, though... some parts are a little iffy, but I'm planning on repeating the process and see if anything else improves. So far, I'm pretty pleased with the results.
