I just picked up one of these and I was wondering if anyone here uses one and what they thought of it.

I have a JVC HR-S7300U its great. It doesn't have the TBC but it has a Stabilizer which acts like a Stabilizer. Super Picture with clarity for SVHS. I think it has the best picture out of the JVC family of VCR. The 7000 is in the same group 69xx 7000 to 7500. Then the 7600 to 9xxx came out with TBC. www.JVC.com should have a Pdf manual for that model. Check it out....
I checked the JVC site and to no avail. I couldn't find the manual. They don't seem to even recognize that model existed.
The manuals on the JVC site appear to be free.
I downloaded the manual for one I just got, the HR-S3600U, which has a very nice picture out on S-Video (but no TBC.)
They have manuals for the HR-S7500U and HR-7600U, which might be close enough.
Anyway when I plug in a search for your model this is what I get:
We could not find an Instruction Book for the model you specified, HR-S7000. We were able to find similar model number(s) as listed below:
I did the same and got the same kind of lists. I checked many of them it is surprising on how different all of those machines are. Even the 7600 is apples and oranges to my machine.
According to Marvingj, the HR-S7500U should be the same family as your deck. How does that manual look?
JVC HR-S9800U (NTSC), love it. Does everything.
JVC HR-S7965EK (PAL), love it. Does everything.
JVC SR-V10U (NTSC), love it. Does everything. I might sell this one in the near future. I'm not sure yet, but I really don't use it much, and I think I'd rather have the money for something else. I actually have a lot of extra things I plan to sell (PAL-to-NTSC conversion hardware, hacked DVD recorders, TBCs, hardware filters, professional DSLR camera and lenses/extras, etc).
I purchased a JVC HR-S9800U on ebay.
I think its worth picking up this model.
Picture set to soft is excellent.
As good or better then the AG-1980 set to softest setting.
I use the Toshiba dr-4 as a pass through to the JVC drm100
Excellent results with dvds in XP mode and lpcm audio.
The HR-S7000U is a piece of history, the very first S-VHS deck ever sold. I paid $699 for mine back in 1988 (quite a bargain from its suggested retail of $1299) and it still works great for what little I still use it.
That's the one!!
Has anyone scanned the users' manual or service manual yet for the HR-S7000U?
If I ever get a paper copy I will scan it and make it available ;)

I also have the silver, pro series with BNC and large jogshuttle, sent it 4 times for repairs - it would tear tapes, eat tapes, disalign very quickly - JVC has always had a good reputation for video quality, but a poor one for build quality and customer service not to mention their authorized repair shops bunch of incompetant F*CKS - My 5912 & one of my 7500s is still going - I had 3 of the black 7500, 2 died ! one had a bad pinch roller out of the box, fixed, then back tension problems, fixed, then alignment / guide issues, fixed, then more alignment problems.
