Product Description

Amazon.com

The inexpensive Panasonic PV-V4022 VCR provides a clean picture and an easy-to-use solution to your VCR needs. The four rotary recording heads ensure a high-quality viewing experience, making this high-fidelity mono VCR a perfect fit with smaller TVs anywhere in your house.

Panasonic offers a number of resources to keep the picture clean and clear. The digital autopicture and digital autotracking features adjust the picture quality to reduce static, shaky pictures, and other onscreen distractions. You also get manual tracking controls on the remote and the front of the unit. The V-lock control adjusts the picture when you are using the freeze-frame mode.

Getting started with the PV-V4022 is simple. The VCR will automatically program all available TV channels into memory, and set the clock the first time you plug it in. The onscreen menu allows you to refine the setup by setting recording preferences and preferred channels. The multilingual menu lets you control the PV-V4022 in your choice of English, French, and Spanish.

The PV-V4022 allows you to review your videotapes in a number of ways. In addition to variable speed fast-forward and reverse options, the index and program-end search functions allow you automatically jump ahead or back to selected points on the tape. A one-touch commercial skip option allows you to quickly jump ahead up to three minutes on the tape.

You'll find a number of automated features on the PV-V4022. Inserting a cassette in the VCR will trigger an autoplay function, and once the end of the tape is reached, the PV-V4022 will rewind and eject the tape for you. An autorecord function lets you tape programs with one-touch, and a timer feature lets you schedule recording in advance.

For households with small children, the VCR lock feature can shut down almost all operations, except for timer recording and tape eject. A universal remote is also included to operate your PV-V4022 VCR as well as your TV.

Front-panel A/V input jacks make it easy to hook up camcorders or other components. The PV-V4022 also features a rear-panel composite-video input.

What's in the Box
4-head VCR, remote control, 2 AA batteries, RF coaxial cable, owner's manual.

As I write this, VCR's are going the way of the 8 track tape. Prices having been dropping on VCR's the past few years and, alas, so has the quality of the machines. For (the cost), this is a decent VCR. There are probably better ones out there, but certainly much worse. This machine is definitely better than the dreadful JVC S-VHS I had previously, and it was supposed to be "high-end". The Panasonic is currently the only VCR I use, and it works well for rented tapes, and works adequately for taping shows. Before buying, I was a little worried about how the sound would be considering it is not stereo. It sounds fine, and I really don't notice that much of a difference between the sound on this machine and previously owned stereo VCR's.
I've owned the PV-4022 for several months now, and it has given me no problems.

Turns out (I guess) it's mono (not stereo) but I hadn't noticed.
The price is right and it's easy to record. One touch of record starts the recording process. Need it to record for a prescribed amount of time? Just hit the record button again and you'll see on the t.v. screen momentarily that it will record for 1 hour. Need 2 hours? Simply hit the record button once more.
We haven't tried programming days in advance, but we were able to program it hours in advance (same day) and that was easy enough.
It comes with a remote control which works well with both the unit itself and a Panasonic t.v. if you have one. My only suggestion is a MUTE button, which I don't see.
We bought it so when VHS is phased out we'll still have a reliable unit to play our old tapes on in case our other VCR stopped working. Turns out we like this unit so much, we retired our other unit and are keeping it for backup instead!

This is an above-average low-priced mono VCR, but it has one HUGE feature that no other widely available VCRs that I know of still offer - THE ABILITY TO RECORD IN LP (4 HOUR) MODE! Everyone knows that SP is the speed to choose for highest quality sound and picture, but when you want to record a 3 hour program and fit it on one tape, LP quality beats the heck out of SLP (EP) mode. I'm surprised sellers don't mention this as one of the features in their web site reviews, because LP record is the MAIN reason I purchased both the PV-V4022 and PV-V4523S (Hi-Fi stereo version, which also boasts LP record).
Picture quality of SP and LP recordings are decent for this price range. Even the SLP mode is acceptable. Audio quality is on-par with what you'd expect from a mono VCR.
This a pretty-good machine with a few more features than the lowest priced models of other brands. But if LP recording is a priority, you don't have much choice other than Panasonic, making this a "must-buy".

I recently replaced my deceased TV and antiquated VCR on the same day (and also acquired my first-ever DVD player), and, as always, I did a fair amount of consumer research before laying out my money. This model got good reviews in a number of print and online sources, and BEST'S had it on sale, so the decision wasn't difficult. It set up and attached to the TV and my cable with a minimum of fuss -- and I was delighted with the feature that allows it to set the time by itself! (Okay, I'm not much of an "early adopter.") In the three months I've had it, I've played probably 30 videos, both my own and multiple-rentals from Blockbuster, and it has performed flawlessly. I've only recorded programs a few times (I work from home so I don't often need to), and the results seemed quite satisfactory. On the other hand, I don't have pretensions to anything approaching a home theater system, so I'm probably not pushing this machine's limits. But if you're looking for a very competent, very affordable VCR and you don't need a lot of bells and whistles, I highly recommend it!

I was just looking for a second VCR and didn't want to spend alot of money since I was just gonna use it to record shows and watch them in the bedroom. I found this little gem and am very pleased with it. My favorite feature is the way it slows down when you are rewinding a tape. This is nice feature to have especially when my last VCR (which cost 3 times as much) ate 6 tapes is a week. The only problems I had were that it was a little confusing trying to get the VCR cable ready and trying to set the timer to record a show. Now that I have done it a few times, setting the timer is a piece of cake. The only other problem I have had is sometimes you have to shut everything off or the VCR gets stuck on wrong channell and all you get is snow. Not sure it does that, but it doesn't happen often. As for any of the other features, I don't know as I just use it mostly for recording and watching what I record, but for the money, it's a great second VCR.

I considered buying a more expensive machine, but then realized that all I really needed was something on which our children could play their movies (it's all about the kids these days!). Having said that, this appeared to do what we needed and the price certainly was right. Had no problems getting the machine hooked up and find that it is very easy to operate with the tv. If you're looking for a no nonsense, basic machine, look no further! (The one complaint I have is that the buttons on the remote are quite small, but that's a minor complaint).
