    Hello everyone!

    This is my first post. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

    I want to buy a dvd/vcr combi but unsure of which one to go for.

    What specs should I be looking out for?

    I have a 28PW9616 TV. Which dvd/dvr combi would be best for this tv?

    My budget is approx £200.

    Look forward to any useful replies.

    I would strongly urge you to go for seperates. DVD and VHS are a strange mix of technologies and you'll end up getting better performance if you get seperates.

    Why not look at the Panasonic S35 for the DVD player:

    If you want a non-Panasonic option my next suggestion would be Toshiba SD330E which can be found on http://www.rgbdirect.co.uk/mainscreen.asp

    For VHS Panasonic and JVC are by far the best. So why not opt for an SVHS machine such as:
    http://www.avland.co.uk/panasonic/nvsv120/index.htm

    Or the JVC equivalent - the JVC HRS5965EK - which is a bit cheaper and can be found on (among others) the RGB site:
    http://www.rgbdirect.co.uk/mainscreen.asp

    If you really want a combo - and I strongly suggest you don't get one - then I would go for Panasonic's option on the basis that for top VHS performance you want a Panasonic or JVC and the latter aren't so reliable on the DVD front:

    Note that, if you shop around, you'll get the seperates cheaper than the combo.
