7 January 2013
Summary: loaded with nice features,above average VCR,bright clock display,also a good plug and play feature without the fuss of programing for those who don't want to.makes tapes look real good, a nice one if you can find it
Summary: I hope it keeps going for a long time, I have a large collection of VHS tapes I need to convert over to DVD and love its capability for being easy on the tapes during wind and search operations. It sometimes gets confused when ejecting a tape and wants to play it again, but so far has not eaten any tapes yet.
Summary: This VHS machine, although advertised to last a lifetime, in fact did not work. It worked a little, sometimes, but produced shaky pictures that struggled, then stopped. The seller alleged that she had tested it multiple times, but it arrived with a non-working battery in the remote, which casts doubt on this story!
Summary: I am very happy with the purchase I made with e-bay.I bought it because my old one quit working right, it was "eating tapes". It works great. It came without a remote, that i knew, but I programmed my cable remote to use with it and it works perfectly.
Summary: This is a great unit; hard to find full featured VCR's with stereo (two audio), tuner and original remote. Using this unit, combined with seperately purchased digitizing unit, to put old home movies on disk; everything working great so far.
Summary: If the VCR (or DVD) recorder does not have auto-time set working, and it cannot retain program memory (the 8 events you set so you can watch a TV show while you're away) during a power outage, then it's nothing but a Hi-Fi player. I bought this unit from a brick-and-mortar store I won't name, plugged it in properly, got all of the analog cable channels, turned it off to auto-set the clock, and it still blinks "Aut" 45 minutes after turning it off.
Summary: The unit picks up interference from my treadmill during tape playback and transmits it to the TV. The current JVC that I am trying to replace does not do this. JVC sent a replacement that does the same thing. Now I can't return the unit. JVC customer service says it isn't a defect and will only replace it again. Who wants another unit if it does the same thing? The auto function didn't work correctly - I finally had to manually program the channels.
