Sensor Brush

How is the expensive Arctic Butterfly 724? Can the same results be acheived in other ways?

Good timing for this post.

I am now cleaning my newly aquired used D700 for the first time. It is going OK, although I feel like I'm shuffling the dust around. I've got a rocket blower, type 3 Sensor Swabs, and Eclipse fluid. I can see that, if a static charged brush works (as I've read about), that targeting certain spots would help greatly. So far, about 30 minutes into it. Already left some streaks, but figured out how to get rid of them on the third pass. Just have some dust appearing in the bottom of my test photo (which means it is at the top of the sensor, right?)

Really? $100 for a sensor cleaning? That seems like gouging to me.
