The timer recording DOESN'T WORK about 50% of the time! How can I trust it to record a show when I'm away? and that's the whole reason I bought the damn thing! Also, most of the time it has problems ejecting the tape! Some people say that it's good for the money... I think that VCRs are a thing from the past and the prices should be even lower. "good for the money" is not an excuse for selling this piece of junk for 60 bucks. I thought that this is going to be the last time I buy a VCR... now I definately know it's the last time I buy a Panasonic product!
