    I can't seem to find one that records a decent picture in SLP. They work
    OK in SP mode, but I used to get that kind of quality with SLP.

  2. I picked up a Panasonic PV-V4603S just this past year,
    the only unit still being made and shipping that still
    recorded in LP mode and it's make excellent recordings.

    i got a JVC-HRS series. if you can get one that doens't break down in
    some fashion, it really does a great job of playback and recording.

    I think those are those things that flea markets are trying to sell at
    $5 each and no one buys. They sit along side of the 14 inch EGA
    monitors and 286 computers.

    It's a device that records onto a tape(that can be
    used over and over) and the video lasts longer than
    a couple of years - as opposed to DVD+-Rw's which may or may not
    last. Tapes slowly degrade, the recordable DVDs look better at first,
    then may suddenly become totally crap.

  10. As an aside, VCR's (at least decent ones) are getting hard to find in
    retail stores. One of mine crapped out and I'm looking to find a new
    one (I'd like a DVD Burner/player) but they are still to expensive for
    my budget). The selection is abysmal. Several retail outlets
    actually have mono units with virtually no features and very few of
    those. There's lots of Thompson produced crap out there under
    different names, but not many others.
