Dennis,


We've had the Azuredisc 1600 model for about a year. A volunteer does the
disc buffing for us and averages over 200 discs a month. The machine has
paid for itself many times over. We are very happy with it.


I'm not familiar with any competitors in the marketplace, but I believe
there was some discussion a few months back, so if no one else responds you
might try the list archives.


Hope this is helpful to you.

Subject: [Videolib] Azuradisc products


Has anyone invested in DVD cleaning and repairing machines from Azuradisc?
I've been asked to look at the products and possibly budget for one.
They're a bit pricey and I wonder whether they can 'pay for themselves' in
an educational setting. Are there competitors to Azuradisc that I should
consider as well.


Many thanks.
