Nice compact VCR

Advantages: Small, fast rewind, stereo, very simple to operate
Disadvantages: Rubbish display on front of unit

A good basic VCR at a good price. Ours was purchased from Dixons for under £100 a few years ago. It's taken a bit of a hammering as it has been used to convert old VHS tapes to DVD format, so has had constant cueing, stopping, rewinding and fast forwardin ...

Nice one Panasonic!

Advantages: Great recorder with good clean looks
