I bought the Alba 6000 SIL back in 2004 from Argos for £39.99 if I remember correctly (but it is more than possible that I do not!) to replace an old 1980's VCR we were using that kept blowing fuses and ejecting the VHS straight after inserting!
Firstly, the looks of the unit - Very nice!
The main button cluster (play & stop/eject) is in a round circle which looks very modern, even today, I think.
The rest of it is nice also, however my one has a missing flap, as it got broken back in 2005, through no fault of Alba I hasten to add!
It is only a 2 head, however it seems to work at a better quality than my Funai 31 B-250 2 head, which I also bought from Argos, but years later (see my reviews for the Funai review).
The remote control is very well laid out, and looks very nice.
I hope you have enjoyed reading my review of the Alba 6000 SIL.
