    YES, it's worth the extra money although I much prefer the JVC range. My last two Panny SVHS VCRs were CRAP. Cheaply built, unreliable and a dreadful SVHS picture. Maybe they've improved recently I don't know.

    I'm well impressed with the pic on my new model, JVC HRS-8850.

    You can get a Panny S-VHS around £200 I have seen them as low as £161, but the one with the jog shuttle are better for cutting ads out(i.e. stop when the ads come on then get it to the exact spot where they start press rec. then when they have finished press pause, you can hardly see the join), only thing is now the do not have this function on the remote.

    :cool: Ruby quartz shades.

    SVHS can be worth it, but it depends what you want to do with it. If you time shift and watch rentals then you might be better off looking elsewhere. SVHS are a premium product but need to be used to their advantage.
