probably weird for a first-time poster to start with a "WANTED" thread, but here we are.
Anyhow - here's a very short intro:
This forum helped me a lot a few years back when I was researching which Digital8 camcorder to buy.
Recently I used this forum a lot to research all things VHS capture.
So I signed up for 3 years membership, but actually had no intentions to ever post anything.
I only wanted to support and show my gratitude by becoming a premium member.
Again: But here we are.
I'm located in Germany and I'm looking for one of the suggested PAL Panasonic S-VHS recorders:
Panasonic NV-FS 200EG
Panasonic NV-HS 1000
If anyone from Germany or the EU (with reasonable shipping costs/total costs...) is willing to part with one that has been professionally refurbished recently, please let me know.
Or please let me know if you can point me to a trustworthy shop where I could find a refurbished model.
1 week ago I bought one on eBay
and learned the hard way, that all warnings here on this forum are valid.
I was lucky though, the seller took his non-working deck back and refunded me.
Thanks for reading.
