After a rave review in What Video I ordered a Panasonic NVSV120 S-VHS VCR. What a disaster ! This has the most unstable picture I have ever encountered on VCRs. Its picture was shaking horizontally, which made Channel 4's Countdown unwatchable - severe eyestrain was an understatement. Even when I turn my JVC's TBC off it gives a more stable picture than this! Notwithstanding this the VHS resolution was worse than my current JVC, and switching to S-VHS-ET made the picture even more unstable. It appears that yet again What Video wears those special rose tinted spectacles that make all video products equally fantastic! And when What Video slate a product (ooh no RGB!, picture ghosts) who are we to believe?
