Use for VHS to DVD transfers
Strengths: S-Video Out
Weakness: Lightweight materials
I ordered this as it was one of the few VCR's to have an S-Video out for slightly better quality to my DVD recorder. Works just fine for me.

Perfect VCR for quality picture needed for hdtvs
Strengths: simple, easy to use, good picture quality, s-video
Weakness: wish it was slimmer
I bought this vcr because we just bought a new hdtv, and we wanted the best vcr to show on the screen, since i heard any video source from a composite source looks worse on hdtvs than regular tvs. So, this was my first choice since it wasn't the cheapest vcr with an s-video and it did not disappoint. Although i wish it was slimmer, considering its been ages since the first vcr came out, but...

I bought this vcr because we just bought a new hdtv, and we wanted the best vcr to show on the screen, since i heard any video source from a composite source looks worse on hdtvs than regular tvs. So, this was my first choice since it wasn't the cheapest vcr with an s-video and it did not disappoint. Although i wish it was slimmer, considering its been ages since the first vcr came out, but that's me being picky.

Good for VCR->DVD transfers
Strengths: picture quality SVHS, S-Video
Weakness: cheap platic chassis
When I received my unit, the rear chassis was cracked. It is a fairly flimsy plastic case on this unit.
The unit was returned and the second one has worked very well. I may be the last person to convert their old VHS home movies to DVD, and this unit gets a superior picture to my previous standard VHS decks. It will even track some older, tricky deteriorated tapes.

Sure you can pay more for a VCR,...
Strengths: Good solid features for a reasonable price. SVHS, hi-fi, S-video and audio in/out.
Weakness: Kinda flimsy feeling, but once it's setup you really can't tell.
Sure you can pay more for a VCR, but do you need to? This VCR is a hi-fi, SVHS unit with s-video and audio in/out. If you're looking to capture higher video resolution source or better audio quality source, VHS technology is probably not where you want to invest anyway.
