I first tried the kit which came with some Eclipse solution and 4 type 2 sensor swabs. I used two of these to try on my Nikon D40, which was never wet-cleaned in five years. I cleaned about 20 or so dust points off the sensor within two swabs and it is now dust free.
I thought this was great success and only took a few minutes, I felt accomplished. I moved on to clean my D90 sensor, that had 4 or 5 good sized dust or dirt blobs on the sensor. I tried and it seemed to push the dust around. Tried some more and it got better. Then tried again and it got worse with some fibers from the swab material showing up on the sensor *look like short strands). I went through the box to get this sensor clean. It is almost clean, but not perfect. There seems to be a piece of something that I cannot get rid of. Thankfully it is small and in the lower right corner. It should not affect me too much unless I stop below F16 and shoot something light in the corner. Even then, I can easily get rid of it in Lightroom.
I give this product three stars. It works, but it loses a star for price (should lose two stars - what a rip-off considering the material costs - I'm being generous today) and forgoes another for the dirt and fibers the swab itself can leave behind although it is advertised as lint free. It requires a lot of patience and trial and error. Although for the price, I can buy at least two-and-a-half boxes of swabs and still be at the price of one "professional" cleaning that did no more than remove some smudges and create some more dust/dirt spots. Bottom line, you need this, it works, do not be afraid. I swabbed at least a dozen times following simple Internet videos and had no issues. If dust or dirt show up and you aren't happy, just swab again! I find that steady even pressure works and you do want to bend the plastic stick slightly with the pressure. Also avoid hitting or rubbing against the sensor box. As stated above, one camera took a few minutes. My other "good" one took me hours and I'm still fussing about with this one. Use at your own risk and patience. I would suggest trying it when you have some peace and quiet in a clean room low on dust and dirt.
As for those that turn these swabs inside out, use cut pecpads, etc. good luck. I have considered this and even tried to reattach a reversed pad, and it is very hard with reattaching the gum band. I would rather just buy another box. YMMV.
It's stated in the directions but to iterate, place a few drops of Eclipse solution (purchased separately) on the pad, apply slight pressure on the pad just enough to slightly bend the pads plastic shaft, drag it one way across the sensor, then reverse the pad (using the second side) and drag it in the opposite direction. NEVER use the same side of the pad twice. If it picks up dirt, you're just dragging the dirt across the sensor and the sensor could be damaged. So use one side then the other. If you missed anything use a second pad. In my case using one pad got 90% but I still had a small spot so I used a second pad. Took some test shots and 100% clean.
In my opinion you should always use the air bulb first. It is the safest method as nothing touches, it's just air. Then if you need to, use the pads. Also there are several sized of pads, get the correct one for your camera.
The Sensor Swab is a 2 cent piece of plastic covered with lens tissue selling for $3/each, but it is exactly the right size for the sensor and leaves NO trace of fiber or streaks on the sensor. Similarly, the E2 cleaning solution leaves no residue on the sensor. With just one swab I was able to completely clean my sensor. There are some very helpful videos on YouTube that will show you exactly how to clean the sensor using the Sensor Swab and E2. I suggest you view it before beginning the process.
In summary, the markup on the Sensor Swab is unconscionable, but in comparison with the cost of sending the camera to Nikon, it was a real bargain and worked very well leaving no dust or other residue. If you have a DSLR you will eventually need to clean the sensor. Prepare yourself and best of luck.
However this is not something you should play with lightly. Misused they could badly damage your camera and make you very sad. Use it when you have enough time to take care of the cleaning, it requires patience to do a good job with it.
So I do it myself. If you consider how much one or two of these swabs cost, about $3 each, and what I hear it costs to take the camera in, about $50 or so, these things are worth it. I have had to use them twice this year. And they work!
The cleaning instructions and how to test the sensor I followed the instructions from [...]
I would recommend to read this website before(!) you try to clean your sensor - it worked for me.
My opinion after all: SensorSwabs are good, I didn't rate them with 5 stars only because of the price.
