Depending on which video you're talkign about - things like biochem can be more useful for older grads while things like pharm and path are more useful for current students i would think.... Overall however, they're pretty good - if you've scheduled yourself properly you should leave yourself some time to study them....

My take on this

The latest 2010 Kaplan Lecture Notes are written in completion and they are not designed to be supplemented with videos and the evidence to that is that they started selling it (for the first time) as stand-alone prep material in Apple's iTunes Store (see this thread).

Therefore, I think that Kaplan have realized that most students cannot afford the high prices of their videos and decided to offer a complete package in the notes.

I forecast the appearance of original lecture notes available for legal sale in libraries and their website in the year 2011.
