I hope this hasn't already been covered. These products seem to be at the budget end of the market though.
Budget end of the market you say?, I've seen good Radford amps change hands for less than the black diamond record clamp!, many thanks to all who contribute to this thread.

Nice array of whiskers.
I wonder if they go with the Black Diamond crystals?

I'm seriously considering one of those anti-static/magnetic optimiser jobbies from the previous threads.

They'd be great on my daughters birthday balloons, no more hair standing on end and the sheer openness, definition and to say nothing of the clarity of the 'pop' at the end of the party

Would I use this device on my CD's/DVD's or vinyl? Only when I run out of anti-static foaming cleanser and I misplace my degauss wand ...
