Nice one Panasonic!

Advantages: Great recorder with good clean looks
Disadvantages: Being rapidly overtaken by DVD recorders

If you need a VCR then be quick as they'll not be around for much longer. DVD recorders are quickly replacing them. In fact I recently bought a DVD recorder myself! So why did I also buy one of these? Very simple. I've got lots of tapes with home movies a ...
