I've seen the SkipDoctor in catalogs but isn't it a hands on process? The
neat thing about the DiscChek unit is that you apparently load it with a big
stack of CD's and DVD's, go off and brew your coffee (can you tell I'm an
addict) and when you return - presto, chango, they're rejuvenated! The fact
that it involves virtually no staff time and does both CD's and DVD's is a
big selling point. The downside is the cost. I don't have an exact amount
because I must have gone momentarily brain dead when the salesperson told me
but I think it was the equivalent of 3 or 4 PC's. Before we budget for this,
I'm hoping for a few testimonials. It's a relatively new product so it's
probably too soon. We never purchased a video cleaning unit because videos
have proven to be extremely durable considering the amount of abuse they
receive from public library patrons. Anyway, I appreciate your input and if
can glean any further information, I'll pass it along.
