*** IMPORTANT NOTE FOR BUYERS: VCRs that have tuners built in do not have a digital tuner, they have analog tuners. So if you have digital cable, digital satellite, or digital antenna, you will not be able to time record. You can still record, but not time record***
Sharp's four-head, hi-fi VC-H810U VCR covers the basics, but also adds some juicy extras, including fast rewind and compatibility with Super-VHS tapes. You'll have this VCR working in just a few minutes with the automatic setup, which also takes care of the clock and channels.
The Sharp VC-H810U features a 180x fast rewind, instant replay, auto-zero back counter, and skip search. You can schedule up to eight events to be recorded up to one year in advance. The unified remote is well laid out and easy to use, and the simplicity of the onscreen programming makes recording easy too.
- Four-head VCR: A VCR requires two video heads to record a picture. With four heads, a VCR can perform special effects like slow motion and freeze frame, and it is optimized for recording and playback in both the SP (2-hour) and SLP (6-hour) modes. You'll also get a better picture from rental videos with a four-head VCR.
- Hi-fi VHS: The standard VHX format with Dolby Surround Pro-Logic encoded in the stereo audio channels, which produces near-CD-quality sound. You'll need an A/V receiver with Dolby Surround Pro-Logic decoding to take full advantage of this feature.

I bought this unit, because I had a Sharp mono VCR in the past and it played pre-recorded video and stereo audio well; all the while, holding up a long time(and I bought it used, too). Well, it does some things better or much better than that older unit, but has a major flaw that I'll get into later that the older one did not have. It plays a very, very sharp, clear(almost DVD like) picture and plays sounds loudly and clearly. Extra Bonus: it seems to upconvert your mono recordings to stereo. May require the original remote and setup to do so. It also records a clear picture(tried to record a problem DVD to VHS tape) in SP mode. I could not tell a difference in its recording and a DVD recording.
Huge Negative for me: Unlike most VCRs(which interpret most problem sections in the tape--lines, etc.--visually only), THIS VCR SEEMS TO INTERPRET THESE SECTIONS OF TAPE BOTH VISUALLY AND AUDIBLY! Not only will you see the typical lines in the playback of problem sections of tape, but you'll hear a sound that sounds like static in a VHF/UHF TV set in almost every one of these problem lines. If you've ever seen a "staticy" VHF/UHF set with a growling picture that happens with an unclear reception, you know that you don't want that in your viewing experience--esp. being a very common occurence or if it will be a family/friend unit for public(more than your own personal) viewing. If you are too young to know what this static sound is, trust me; you don't want to hear that with every problem line you see in a VCR tape! VCR tapes are older now and I'll "bet" that 85% or more have quite a few problem lines. With this VCR, you'll see and hear them. AND IT'S QUITE ANNOYING: like a tasmanian devil; the sound of dental equipment; or scratching boards. Be warned; this happens almost, if not every time, you encounter problem lines/areas of tape!
