Summary: I recently purchased a JVC HRS3902U VCR that was supposedly in good condition. It was a little more than I wanted to pay but since you can't buy a new VCR anymore, I opted for this assuming the price meant it would be good! Wrong! After being used just a few times it started having a loud background noise of the tape running during viewing. It also needs a head cleaning after viewing about 4 videos. Seems a little bit of overkill to me.
Summary: I bought this model in Sept. 2006, so I've had it almost 4 years. It has worked great, with no problems at all. Once my wife and I got used to how to program it, it has been very easy to use. A couple of other reviewers have gotten models that were defective or died in a little over a year, but that has not been our case.
Summary: Not many VCRs left for sale these days. I bought 2, one for me and one for a friend. This one is a great one but a little difficult to get used to, different from others I have had. My other VCRs don't always play the recordings easily. Fairly easy setup for recording up to 8 recordings.
Summary: Really pleased with this VCR but only got 13 months out of it. Noticed the clock was off and discovered VCR was dead. Of course, warrenty was 12 months parts and labor for ONLY 3 months. So guess I'm shopping for a different model (not JVC) now.
