I think TapeChek is worth the money: not only does it clean, it can track
flaws in the tape. This can be very useful if you have a big collection
(ours is 10000+) and you need to pinpoint flaws to decide whether
or not the video can be spliced without losing info. I also think it cleans
better than the smaller, simpler
versions, but that's purely subjective.
