Looks like a fine machine, just seems over built for the job. If it's free, then sure why not. If it's not free then maybe look into just doing straight DV camcorder to computer captures? Any DV camcorder should do. Unlike analog decks, there is no real advantage to have expensive DV decks for quality reasons. Also if you are using that machine to output DVDs, then you're going to see a loss in quality when you could just have the original DV video delivered directly to your computer via firewire.
I personally own a similar Combo-JVC unit, the S-VHS model (SR-MV45) which also comes with the DVD deck. It's a great machine with TBC/S-Video/NR/VerticalVideoStab, just I would never care to own a DV model simply because you can get by just as well with the barebone equipment.

JVC DV players are tape eaters.
So if the intention was to get it for playing DV tapes, don't do it.
DV cameras much better for that task.
I refer ONLY to the DV, not any other aspect of the JVC machines, which are usually good (if cared for, therefore usually meaning not-from-eBay), depending on model.
