    Guys,
    My fiancee's ancient VCR finally died, and she's in need of a replacement. In light of the fact that we're saving for a wedding, price is a very limiting factor.
    Anyone have a spare VCR they'd be willing to part with? We'd like to keep this as cheap as possible, and by cheap I'm talking < $50 shipped.
    A stereo VCR would be a plus, as it may eventually serve duty in a bedroom system, but it's not required.
    Thanks!
    -Brett.

    Brett go to just about any store in town and you can pickup a super cheapo brand new for $50. Good hifi stereo vcrs are like $89

    Jeff,
    Thanks for the tip. I'd seen a few locally in that price range, but I guess I was suspicious of the quality/longevity of one of these models. My thinking was that a year old model that sold originally for $100+ would be a better unit than a brand new $50 one in the long run.
    Along the lines of super cheapo new ones, any suggestions of brands/model to look for or avoid?
    Thanks!
    -Brett.

    I have a Panasonic HiFi VCR, great condition, original box, remote,etc I could send you for $50 shipped. I rarely played tapes, I mostly used it for a tv tuner.
    (I just bought a JVC SVHS to match my tv, and this has been taking up room in my closet!)
    I can get the model number if necessary. It cost me around $129 approx. 2 years ago.
    So, $45 bucks plus 5 bucks shipping USPS.
