  1. I´ve read much information about machines with 25 years ago (SOny - Panasonic, etc).
    But haven´t heard anything bou Samsung VCR.
    Yes, quality is not the best (even with metal parts on mechanisms).

    But I had a VT 7253C VCR (digital display and tuner, 2 head, 2 week timer) and lasted 6 years ....
    My cousin had the VT7251, similar, and gave to me as a gift, but technician said that has a wormgear brokan, not only hard to find
    buy synchronize it it´s very hard..!!!!
    That part makes the loading mechanism detecd an prepare the tape transport. !!
    I exchanged it for a Sony....

    anyone has a that Suamsung old logo VCR???

    Samsung never really made VCRs.
    Most of them were rebadged Panaspnic VCRs.

    lordsmurf knows what he is talking about. Most Samsungs are just rebranded Panasonics as well as a few others.

    Ahh, my Samsung VCR...

    Kicked it in when it started flaking out. Keeping it around for The Great Bonfire for when I finally finish with my VHS transfers.

    I have no love for VHS. This is regular practice for me and this gear.

    Is there anything you'd like me to check under the hood that confirms it's a Panasonic?

    I hate VHS. I always did.
