    I just got a 4611. [​IMG] I like it. Don't buy the Sony NV51 (or something). Very bad reviews on www.audioreview.com .

    Believe it or not my $47 Symphonic 4 head HI-FI(WalMart) performs flawlessly for recording and playback.

    I don't use it much, I bought it to view my BTTF, Real genius, and Vacation movies on VHS. And I taped a football game once and looked great!

    I've probably owned over 20 VCR's. Panasonics are my favorite. I remember once when I was getting the eject transport on my Toshiba repaired, the repair guy showed me the plastic parts used by Toshibas and told me he never understood why most brands used plastic in an area so likely to break. When I asked which companies used metal parts, he said Panasonic and I've been using them ever since. They do seem to last a lot longer than the other brands I used.

    The JVC 782 is pretty good at $100.
