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.
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.
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.
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.

Summary: I purchased this VCR on recommendation when my Sony SLV N900 performed like a piece of junk. I have had this JVC VCR for 2 weeks and I am very disappointed with it for the following reasons: 1.
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.
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...
