Default Re: VHS Machine Brands - Tops and Flops

I wonder RR if you have copies of Gordon J Kings reviews on Video Recorders?

I have a couple and also a copy of Video Choice's "Video." Introduced by Barry Fox and authored by Rod Snell, it follows Gordon's technical assessment of video recorders using photo's of the video sweep together with Test Card F to show the reader just how good and how bad the machines were. The JVC 3300 is pushing a response to 3.2 MHz!! A Mitsubishi just makes around 2 MHz.

The G-decked machines were built entirely by Grundig, at least the ones I know of. This includes all of the the 220u 25V electrolytics leaking all over the power supply. A tradition they continued into the early I3R era (i.e. some Philips models suffer from this as well, such as VR632, VR833,VR948).

The Sanyo P90 machine was also built by Sanyo.
