I bought this VCR from an online auction, and was sceptical about possible quality. I am happy to report that my worries never came true.... The VCR was not DOA, didn't break within the first month, and it actually has great quality recording and playback.
Asside from being a great all-round VCR, this Toshiba VCR has a lot of "people appeal". Its operation is easy; all basic operations are easily assesible from the front display on the VCR, and they are also easy to operate from the remote.
The VCR allows for three different line-ins, two in the back and one easily assessible from the front. When not using the front, a panel hides the fact that it is there, making it quite likeable in a nice entertainment cabinet, but also easy to hook up a videocamera without having to access the back of the VCR.
Overall video quality is pretty darn good, video from rented videos (even those that are obviously very used) showed up crisp, and with good audio quality to boot. Recorded video is comparable, with no obvious flaws, except those from the source.
The only problem with this VCR is activating the timer, which involves pressing several buttons to activate. I still prefer older models that would automatically activate the timer as long as power was OFF.
Asside from that, this VCR seems to be a great addition (and replacement for our Zenith VCR) to our video stack.
