as it's obvious vhs is quickly becoming passe. Well, that's why you need to burn dvds of your favorite vhs stuff.

VHS has been out so long now that we can see those players are merely consumer appliances to be disposed of when they do fail in a fairly short number of years.

I also advise dvd equipment purchasing to consider they are really only manufactured to last around 5 years, so why go overboard on price?

Really, I think that's the reality of the situation.
