Our take on the Maxell VP-100

by James Ralston
Maxell

This safe, non-abrasive head-cleaning cassette does away with the particle build-up that can negatively affect your VCR's picture. It cleans the entire tape path, including the tape heads. Good for approximately 100 cleanings. Warranty: 90 days.

Note: We recommend that you check your VCR owner's manual for information about compatibility with dry-type or wet-type head cleaners.

Features

Overview: The Maxell VP-100 is a dry-type VHS head cleaner tape. It can be used for VCRs and camcorders that use the VHS format. One cleaning takes approximately 20 seconds, and provides effective cleaning of the entire tape path. Cleaning the video heads restores lost performance and can prolong the life of the camcorder or VCR by removing harmful deposits.

Usage: The tape should be used for 20 seconds, stopped, and ejected. The tape will auto-rewind after cleaning.

Expected Usage: Video heads should be cleaned after approximately every 20 hours of use. This VHS head cleaner cassette can be used up to 100 times. The tape label provides 100 check boxes to indicate the number of times the head cleaner has been used.

Used many wet & dry head cleaners but never had one cause static & snow before along with a terrible noise. Had to adjust the head up & down with the cleaning head in to remove the problem created by the first application .
Pros:
Easy
Cons:
Caused more problem than what it had before the cleaning

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Thanks for this chance to review my recent shipment of Maxell video head cleaner, dry kind: Well I was hoping it would work. Of course the shipment arrived in excellant condition due to your special starch based packing peanuts. I appreciate your not using styrofoam for the packing. The price was certainly right. But I need the head cleaner that shows on the screen what it's doing. I wish I could attach a picture of the box. The ones I received from Crutchfield say they clean this and that but there's still alot of junk on the screen that prevents me from seeing the picture. In the past 2 months, I've bought 5 vcr head cleaners (2 from your company, and the others from other companies). The only one that really worked for me is as follows: MAXELL VCR Cleaner, Model #VP-100, Item #290058. I sure would buy that one if you can provide it. I've had the tape since 2008 and it just doesn't work anymore. The tape looks like regular vhs tape like yours. One cleaner has no tape, only brush. New no work well
Pros:
price and packing material excellant
Cons:
No on screen instructions. Did not clean up the heads as advertized.

Have not had a chance to use the Maxell cleaning Tape.

Still have one of my other Scott cleaning Tape (made in USA) which work very
good.
We will see if the Maxell Tape (made in China) will work as well.

Wish they would still make them in the USA.
