The unit is extremely light at only a few pounds, but that's a good thing considering how most older VCRs from the old days were like WEIGHTS.
A S-VHS Hi-Fi VCR like this would have easily costed HUNDREDS back then, so I ain't complaining.
No problems so far, everything works as it should for a VCR of this price range.
TVB dramas play very well on this VCR.
Everything looks and sounds pretty clear.
Even old porn tapes that I have collected from 10-15 years ago will play fine thanks to the "ACTIVE VIDEO CALIBRATION" and "VIDEO STABILIZER" features in this VCR.
I have not yet tried it with an S-VHS tape, so I don't know how it will perform with those.
Perhaps the only thing I don't like about this VCR is that the remote, due to its ultra-slim design; doesn't use standard AA or AAA batteries.
Instead, it uses lithium watch batteries; which are expensive and can be a bitch to replace.
Another minor weakness of this VCR is that it only comes packaged with an RF cable, and no AV hook-up cables whatsoever.
For choice of cabling, I would suggest the Sonicwave S-video with Stereo Audio Interconnect; as it is relatively inexpensive but gives you great value.
1. You can't punch in your record time, you have to keep pressing up(the clock goes up and down in 1,15,30, and 60 mins increments) until you reach your desired time.
2. You can't see the counter on the VCR display, you can only see it on the tv screen. It dissapears once you hit "Stop", although the tape is still rolling (ex: you hit stop at 1:01, but it keeps going back to 00:59. You don't know this until hit "Display" again). This makes it hard to stop on your desired place on the tape.
3. Although I don't have an issue with the small remote, it's inconvenient that I can't use my rechargeable AA batteries. Hope this lil sucker last for a while.
4. The unit is pretty noisy, noisier than the 2 VHS units I had previous.
Other than those small, inconvenient issues, it's been working great. Picturewise, well I honestly didn't expect much, even if it's an S-VHS. It doesn't blow me away nor dissapoint. I don't plan on using VHS tapes for archiving, just to tape shows that I can see at a later date once, and that's it.
good tuner & remote, all-around great deal for a nearly new S-VHS unit at flea market pricing.
S video hook-up is superior to the old RCA A/V system. Video playback on lots of tapes rivals DVD and stereo and surround imaging is more than satisfactory. In fact am buying VHS pre-recodred in lieu of DVD because the stores sell them at a deeper discount.
Set-up was a breeze and after nearly two years not a hiccup.
As far as recording can't tell you a thing. Haven't recorded and don't plan to.
For the now price of 80 bucks delivered this is probably the best electronics deal on Amazon.
Just recomended to my brother to replace his old non stereo unit.
In case you are wondering on my expertise the rest of my system is a Pioneer Elite 74 receiver, Polk RTi 10s and 8s with a CSi5 center, Sony SCD 2000ES CD deck, Sony DVD, and Sony HDTV.
