This is a terrific VCR! Though unfortuanately the condition does have a defect, as described below.

NICHOLAS SCUDERI, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my third VCR of the same model. I now have three. The one I just purchased from you does not rewind in the fast or faster mode, as it should. It sure would be nice if I could get some credit back for such.

Exceptional S-VHS Recorder

gobirds2, Amazon
5 October 2006
  • Summary: JVC has always manufactured the best S-VHS recorders. You get 400 lines of resolution when you record on S-VHS tape in the SP mode. This unit does have S-VHS ET capability but I still prefer to record on S-VHS tapes for best results. This is an exceptional unit.

JVC not user friendly

Dr. Duane, Amazon
30 June 2006
  • Summary: I wanted to replace an older VCR and so I bought this JVC HRS5902U based on some glowing reviews and rather impressive technical features. Needless to say words are cheap; experience is the best teacher. This is the most user unfriendly device I have ever encountered.

Full-featured VCR's like this are hard to come by

Lee G. Gilman, Amazon
8 December 2005
  • Summary: The VHS VCR is a dying breed. However, the VCR can record broadcast shows with "copy protection signals" that a DVD recorder cannot, so there will be a place for VCR's in the years ro come.

JVC NEVER DSAPPOINTS

David M. Dolson "happy customer", Amazon
13 August 2005
  • Summary: I have been a loyal JVC customer for the past twenty years and have never been disappointed by their products. This versatile VCR is no exception. With its multi head recording and playback ability plus its user friendly remote and operations, the JVC is a welcome addition to my home theater system.

Always been a s-vhs fan & am pleased with this one.

J. Pawlowski, Amazon
4 April 2005
  • Summary: Many TV newsrooms use super VHS, in their cameras, or for editing & dubbing in the studio... quickly, on the fly. Flaw, bug, & software free, fool-proof analog video almost as good as DVD, with S-video & multiple inputs & outputs that would make any videophile drool.

Good features, but major annoyances

H. K. Frensdorff, Amazon

  • Summary: This high-end VCR has many advanced features,such as jog and shuttle on the remote, flying erase heads, S-VHS, etc. It produces a fine picture, and has very good tracking with old tapes.

Deeply disappointing

lenzelig, Amazon
28 October 2004
  • Summary: I bought the HR-S5902U for the flying erase head feature and used it to record on regular VHS tapes in SP mode. I did not use quasi S-VHS. I have a slew of complaints. First, the remote does not have an insert edit button, so to use the flying erase head the VCR must be within reach.

Very good high quality VCR for the price.

John Wilck "jwilck655", Amazon
16 September 2004
  • Summary: I would have given it 5 stars but there are two things about it that I did not like. I have an older RCA TV and had a fantastic RCA VCR that I used as a tuner for years. The two worked great together as the clock on the VCR displayed time while the TV showed the channel as well as when you shut the...
