Post approved.

These really are workhorse VCRs.
I've only had to get my main one repaired twice in the past 10 years. It only needs servicing about once per year.

The units that I sell are refurbished, serviced, cleaned and in perfect working order. These are hard to find rare machines. This is not some basic test were you put a tape in the machine. Once in a blue moon you may find one of these on ebay, but 95% of the time, it will fail my tests. The service work alone is more than a few hundred dollars. This is a really good VCR, it could be one of the best that JVC ever put out.

One last thing, it comes with a remote. These units are worthless without one....

Let me help break it down:
- MSRP on this VCR in 1998, when the model was new, was about $595. Street price was about $495 + shipping from B&H.
- A proper cleaning runs about $65 after sales tax.
- Other maintenance runs anywhere from $30 to $70 hourly after sales tax.

I know this because I've paid those price and rates, and because I've charged those prices and rates.

If this unit is in like-new condition, it could command MSRP. Due to scarce supply of this specific unit, and extra time spend doing maintenance, it could be worth a premium above MSRP. The right buyer will understand what he/she is getting here, and isn't the typical cheapskate from eBay.

deter, I see this on the post: "1 Year Parts, 90 Days Labor Warranty" --- is that a copy/paste of the original specs, or are you offering a warranty?

And this specific JVC actually does not require a remote. In fact, some controls are only on the deck. The 9800 came with the tan-colored remove, model LP20465-007, which featured a full job dial. Aside from the jog dial, the remote is identical to the black remotes that came with lower-end models (3800, 4800, 7800).

The 9600 and 9800 are easily the two best units.

deter, are you still selling this deck?

edit: ignore this.
Thread title doesn't say [SOLD], so it must be, and I just noticed you're selling the NTSC 9800, not the PAL version.
