Summary: I thought it would look a little used but it looked a lot used, It has scratches on it and was not cleaned up very well. But the plus side it works great no problem and the remote I had with my old one works just great with this new one.
good clear picture. good backup vcr. long-lasting.

Summary: i've had this vcr since 2002. i bought it at best buy for $59 as we just needed a vcr for our den tv entertainment center. i already had other vcrs so i didn't need a real good one. but i was pleasantly surprised. the picture is good and clear and it's very easy to set up with the menu. also easy to operate with the remote. it's still going strong 11 years later. i'm pleased with mine so i bought another one off of ebay for backup.
Summary: I've had this machine for over 2 months and I still can't get it to work! It's not the machine's fault or the seller ... but without a remote, I can't get it to work. Then I asked a neighbor of mine that is much handier with technical machines and after he hooked it up, it still would not work. Maybe it's because my TV has to go through a DSL Converter box since I don't have cable. So far, it's just sitting there and I can't see any of my video tapes.
Summary: This VHS receiver/recorder was exactly what I wanted and needed. My old VHS receiver/recorder had become unreliable after MANY years of nightly use. The JVC unit has taken its place as my primary recorder and tuner. I have four others. I sometimes tape up to three different shows on different channels and play the tapes back on the JVC unit. It replays just fine! I am very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: My parents bought me this VCR new as a gift many years ago. I take good care of all my electronics, never abuse them or anything. I have to say, this JVC VCR is a great one. I'd say it's probably 6-8 years old - I forget when I received it, but it still works and looks like new. Admittedly I can't remember how much I've watched VHS tapes on it recently but I used to watch movies on it all the time with no problems.
