    Wondering if anyone knew much about this model. I've heard the newer AG 1980s are excellent. I still tend to watch a lot of obscure and foreign titles on VHS and wouldn't mind spending a bit extra to get something that looks half decent on my new HD set.

    Any comments/advice would be appreciated.

    I've seen but never used one at the local Community TV studio. They look generally similar to the AG1980. I have an AG1980 and it's a great deck for playback or editing. It has a tuner and timer but has no VCR+, BTW. The 1980 was made for 5 years or more. So, the 1960 is pretty old...late 80's to early 90's. Can you try for the 1980? You may stille find brand new ones someplace?

    Thanks. I'll probably hold out for either an AG 1980 or Sony SLV 1000, then.
