I agree and have two in my VHS VCR collection. One is a Ferguson 3V29 and the other, is a Telefunken VR520, with VHF and UHF band coverage, but for UK System I transmissions (made for the Irish market, I expect). The instruction booklet is in English.

I laid in a stock of "clearance" genuine JVC parts several years ago, so I hope to keep them fully operational for many years. Top loader decks have less to go wrong and there are far fewer plastic parts to disintegrate.
