I want to upgrade from my VCR but no one will or cannot tell me what to purchase.I record one Program on my VCR:-Speedway from Europe at 3am in the morning, and that is from "Austar". What I...
Hi, well these days almost any brand is as good as another, and often i find these days, that when i open up, similar units, i find a board.parts inside made by the same or similar quality manufacturer, i guess what i am trying to say is this, choose whatever one/brand YOU like, BUT get a Warranty, NOT an extended warranty, just a normal one... This way in the unlikely event that it faults inside the warranty period, at the least you will be covered. Get a unit that there has been many sold, usually the one that out-sells the most, does so for a good reason, so go along to your shop of choice, and simply ask, in the range you want/like, "What is your most popular selling model?", and if you like the look of it... buy it. It really is that simple. You may also want to re-think about getting a "Combo" DVD/VCR, while "Combos" are good, they are in my experience, likely to fault "more" than single dedicated units, personally myself, i would get a "dedicated" unit, one for the VCR, and the other for the DVD, a good DVD player can be had for as little $25.00 I have got one for that price myself, and it's wonderful, and easily as good as many "other" more expensive units. With the VCR, just do as I suggested, and just get the best selling one, with a warranty on both and should be well served for many years to come.
PS: You also may want to think about getting a satellite or freeview decoder and recorder, that way you could record from the TV programs etc, straight into the "Decoder" just like a Sky Decoder etc. that you may have seen on the Tv?
