Hey How are you ?

I new its kind of old and maybe its too late for that but I was wondering where can I find a good VCR ? I had some old video tapes used to work on my old LG VCR which was stored for more than 10 years and now its not working perfectly & everytime I had to use some cleaning tapes but its not a long lasting solution !!! I read the VCR buying guide posted in this forum but where can I find these VCR??? I checked ebay but they are very expensive. I mean around $150 plus $15 shipping or more !!! I dont know if thats normal nowadays or overrated but I need your help guys

Thanks

good TBC equipped VCRs are usually $100 and up
the best models like the 9600 and 9800 and usually over $300
ebay is usually the best place to find them
the marketplace here usually has some too - i have an SR-V10U listed

$150-300 is average. These were not cheap ~$100 VCRs from Best Buy or Wlmart. These were pro decks.
In the 90s, when new, VCRs like this were easily $400-1000. It's cheaper now.

You can always buy the unit, use it, then resell it on the marketplace (for free!) in this forum.
