Ok folks, my lovely old Panny NV-HD100B, that has stood with me through thick and thin, is finally on its way to the big VCR skip in the sky So I need some advice on replacing it: I'm down to the Panasonic NVHS825BS and the NVHS870BS. the 825 is £208 from QED-UK and the 870 is £287. the only difference i can see from the Panasonic site is the 870 has "Deluxe Easy Guide On Screen Display" and "One touch edit with control LANC" which aren't listed for the 825. Anyone know if the 825 is from an older range or a newer one? Any advice from people who have bought one of these? And no I wouldnt consider a Sony (image too soft) or a JVC (short life span in my experience). And as a sidenote, anyone bought a VCR from qed.uk.com? if so what do you think and what kind of courier do they send stuff by? Cheers.
