    Needed mostly for recording.

    Long play is a must.

    What do you reccomend and what should I be looking out for (features etc.)?

    Oh yeah, and doesn't look cheap and nasty because it can't spoil the equipment rack ;)

    Here's a more mature reply...
    Try Matsui. A friend of mine uses a £90 nicam model. For the price it gives a decent sharp picture performance and is easy to use.

    Some people want the Earth, and they want it delivered for £9.99.
    I don't think you're being realistic in your expectations.

    Not necassarily in terms of looks. Don't know about videos but the £100 Toshiba SD110E DVD player looks fairly decent.

    Hey I don't want to spend money on something I'm not too bothered about - just for recording (long play is needed as nearly everyone I know records in that mode and I will be swapping tapes with them). I don't have much money either.

    Thankyou for the reply I actually needed. Now I need to find out which Matsui it is.

    I think I am. Mostly for recording, long play (common, basic feature [i think]), not looking nasty... for £80-100 - that is realistic I'd say. You can get that sort of level for that price on a DVD player so surely you can on an out dated technology.
    I didn't ask for much really, I didn't even mention quality or build.

    Try a Panny NV-SJ220 (black or silver) Under a ton if you try hard enough! NV-FJ630 (black or silver) with Nicam for around £130 - £150.

    Supplied loads of these VCR's - complaints? - zilch! Faults - none!

    Highly recommended - as used by me!

    Regards - GGES.

    The Matsui vcr model no is VN 9720. (Hope it is still available).
    Yes I agree, Panasonic are definitely worth buying as well. I use a older mono one myself.
